If yes, then this study material is just for you! In this post, we will provide you with some study material related to English for Unit 1 and 2 of the 2nd semester.
Unit 1: Travelling through Ladakh
Ladakh, also known as the “otherworldly and magical” place, is a popular destination for travellers from all over the world. The travellers who visit Ladakh have a profound impact on the lives of the people who belong there. The study material for this unit discusses the various ways in which travellers influence the lives of the people of Ladakh.
The author describes Ladakh as a secret treasure, a new place to dramatise all the paradoxes of civilization and its disadvantages and discontents. The influence of different travellers has made people of Ladakh realise the need to move away from anachronistic practices and embrace new technologies. The study material explains how the travellers have brought the essence of technological advancement to Ladakh, and how this has kindled in the people the desire to taste the fruits of technology.
Unit 2: Life in Ladakh
In this unit, the study material discusses the contrasting ways of life in rural and urban areas of Ladakh. The writer draws a marked contrast between the ways of life in the two areas. The study material explains how young people in Ladakh’s towns prefer western ways of entertainment, while people in the villages prefer traditional ways of enjoyment and recreation.
To illustrate the life as lived in towns, the study material provides a reference to how frequently the teenagers in the town used to visit Hotel California, thus giving a hint of the urban culture or western ways of living. The people in the villages, on the other hand, do not frequent hotels and prefer traditional ways of entertainment.
The study material also includes some questions and answers related to the two units, such as the impact of travellers on the people of Ladakh, the western influence on young people in Ladakh’s towns, and the discovery made by Raman during his voyage across the Mediterranean.
This study material will help you to understand the two units of English in the 2nd semester of BG course at Kashmir University. Make sure to go through the questions and answers provided in the study material, as they will help you to prepare for the exams. Keep studying and all the best!
