Mid Year Examination (#4): Section H

Read the passage below and answer questions.

  A visit to the Akshaya Patra Centre reveals the passion that goes into preparing meals for 8700 school children in the area. At 5 a.m., the cooks wake up and put on their uniforms. Over the next five hours, large amounts of rice and curry are prepared.

  In a neat but dilapidated classroom in India, Krishna and Manju sit cross-legged with their friends. As the clock strikes twelve, there is- a sparkle in Krishna's eyes When the form teacher gives the signal, all 158 pupils joyfully rush out of their classrooms to collect their stainless steel plates. The rich aroma of curry wafts through the air.

  They sit along the corridors, chatting away as they wait to be served. The teachers and cooks bring out the rice and curry for the pupils. These pupils benefit from India's Mid-Day Meal Scheme as they are not well-fed at home. By serving meals in school, the government hopes more families would begin to send their children to school. In turn, more children are able to go to school.
