Eight persons from different banks, viz UCO Bank, Syndicate Bank, Canara Bank, PNB, Dena Bank, Oriental Bank of Commerce, Indian Bank and Bank of Maharashtra, are sitting in two parallel rows containing four people each, in such a way that there is an equal distance between

adjacent persons. In row 1: A, B, C and D are seated and all of them are facing south. In row 2: P, Q, R and S are seated and all of them are facing north.

ENGLISH LANGUAGE & COMPREHENSION

Directions (141-150): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions. When wealth came into existence, a moral structure was made around money. The Puritan legacy inhibited luxury and self-indulgence. Thoughtful people spread a practical gospel that emphasized hard work, temperance and frugality and the result was quite remarkable. The worldhas been affluent since its founding. But it was, by and large, not corrupted by wealth. For centuries, it remained industrious, ambitious and frugal. Over the past 30 yrs., much of that has been shredded. The social norms and institutions that encouraged frugality and spending what you earn have been undermined. The institutions that encourage debt and living for the moment have been strengthened. The moral guardians are forever looking for decadence out of movies and reality shows. But the most rampant decadence today is financial decadence, the trampling of decent norms about how to use and harness money. The deterioration of financial traditions has meant two things. First, it has meant an explosion of debt that inhibits social mobility and ruins lives. Second, the transformation has led to a stark financial polarization. On one hand, there is what is called an investor class. It has tax-deferred savings plans, as well as an army of financial advisers. On the other hand, there is the lottery class, people with little access to financial planning but plenty of access to payday lenders, credit cards and lottery agents. The loosening of financial inhibition has meant more options for the well-educated but more temptation and chaos for the most vulnerable. Social norms, the invisible threads that guide behaviour, have deteriorated. Over the past years, people have been more socially conscious about protecting the environment andinhalingtobacco. They have become less socially conscious about money and debt. The agents of destruction are many and State governments have also played a role. They hawk their lottery products with aggression, which some people call a tax on stupidity. Twenty per cent of the world's population consists of frequent players, spending about $60 billion a year. Aside from the financial toll, the moral toll is comprehensive. Here is the government, the guardian of order, telling people that they don't have to work to build for the future. They can strike it rich for nothing. Payday lenders have also played a role, They seductively offer fast cash-at absurd interest rates- to 15 million people every month. Credit card companies have played a role. Instead of targeting the financially astute, who pay off their debts, they have found that they can make money off the young and vulnerable. Fifty-six per cent of students in their final year of college carry four or more credit cards. The nation's leaders have played a roleas theyhave always had an incentive to shove costs for current promises onto the backs of future generations. It has only now become respectable to do so. The market itself has played a role. Software stalwarts built socially useful products to make their fortune. But what message do the salary packages that their top managers get send across the country when they ignore millions of fellow countrymen who suffer from poverty, malnutrition or hunger? Austerity has become a thing of the past.

The list could go on. But there could be some recommendations. First, raise public consciousness about debt the way the anti-smoking activists did with their campaign. Second create institutions that encourage thrift. Foundations and religious

institutions could issue short-term loans to cut into the payday lender's business. Colleges could reduce credit card advertising on campus. The tax code should tax consumption not income. But the most important thing is to shift values. The 'wise' made it prestigious to embrace certain middle class virtues. Now, it's socially acceptable to undermine those virtues. It is considered normal to play the debt game and imagine that decisions made today will have no consequences in the future.

academia is trapped within a perfect storm created by a combing of social and economic factors. In this socio-economic calculus, the members of our societal classes should prefer an IT job to an academic one. Or, to put it another way, the knowledge economy, ie, the creation of knowledge for profit, trumps the knowledge society, ie, the creation of knowledge for its own sake or the sake of the greater good. As is said, "knowledge is power, but money is even more power". Perhaps the scientist was alluding to this victory of capitalism over the pursuit of pure knowledge when he accused IT having a negative influence on Indian science. Surely, knowledge has become a commodity like any other and is a result, knowledge workers are like any other labourers, who will sell their wares to the highest bidder. One solution is to except and even encourage the commoditization of knowledge; if so, Indian universities and research centres should copy their western counterparts by becoming more and more like corporations. These centres of learning should convert themselves into engines of growth. In this logic, if we increase academic salaries and research grants to match IT pay cheques we will attract good people into academia, where, in any case, it is rumoured that a certain elusive feeling called "the quality of life" is better.

Certain words/phrase have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions. A few weeks ago, a newspaper article quoted well known scientist saying, "IT has destroyed

Indian science". One can speculate about the various ways in which the growth of the IT sector and other similar knowledge industries such as biotechnology has lead to a decline in basic scientific research in India. The most obvious reason is money, pay scales in IT and BT are much higher than one can aspire to in academia. The argument goes: why should a bright B. Tech. or M.Sc. Student enroll in a Ph.d. Programme when she can make a lot more money

writing code? Not only does a fresh IT employee make

a

rise much faster in IT than in academia. A professor's pay at a government-run university, even after the Sixth Pay Commission, tops out at far less than a senior executive's salary in a major industry. Second, the social status of IT and BT jobs equal or even exceed the social status of corresponding academic positions, since they are seen as knowledge industries, which plays to the best and worst instincts of the societal order. As quintessential white collar professions, neither do they compel a successful entrepreneur to resort

violence and corruption, nor do they demand any

physical labour. Unlike real estate or reconstruction, it is felt that IT workers can become rich while staying honest and sweat-free. Assuming that the labour pool for academia and IT is roughly the same, the difference in our collective preferences biases the labour market towards IT and away from academia. Further, when the imbalance between IT and academia continues for years and even decades, a destructive loop, from academia's point of view, is created. When our best and brightest take IT jobs over academic ones for a decade or more, faculty positions in our universities and research centres are no longer filled by the best candidates. As faculty quality goes down, so does the
