2. Read the following text and make a flow chart showing the life history of Kalpana Chawla. (One is done for you.)

Chawla was born in Karnal, India. She completed her earlier schooling at a local school. She is the first Indian-born woman and the second person in space from this subcontinent. After graduating in Aeronautical Engineering from Punjab Engineering College, Chawla moved to the United States in 1982. She obtained her Master's degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Texas. Later she did her PhD in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Colorado.

Determined to become an astronaut even in the face of the space shuttle Challenger disaster on 28 January 1986 that led to the deaths of its seven crew members, Chawla joined NASA in 1988. She began working as a Vice-President where she did Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) research on vertical take-off and landing. In 1991, she got U.S. citizenship and started her career as a NASA astronaut in 1995. She was selected for her first flight in 1996. She spoke the following words while travelling in the weightlessness of space. "You are just your intelligence." She had travelled 10.67 million miles, as many as 252 times around the Earth.

Her first space mission (Mission STS 87) began on 19 November 1997 with six other astronauts on the Space Shuttle Columbia. On her first mission that lasted for 15 days, 16 hours, 34 minutes and 4 seconds, she travelled 6.5 million miles. She was responsible for deploying the Spartan Satellite which, however, malfunctioned, necessitating a spacewalk by Winston Scott and Tako Dol, two of her fellow astronauts, to retrieve the satellite.

3. Write the summary of the following poem of Robert Hayden.

Sundays too my father got up early

and put his clothes on in the blueblack cold,

then with cracked hands that ached

from labor in the weekday weather made

banked fires blaze. No one ever thanked him.

I'd wake and hear the cold splintering, breaking.

When the rooms were warm, he'd call,

and slowly I'd rise and dress.

fearing the chronic angers of that house,

Speaking indifferently, to him,

who had driven out the cold

and polished my good shoes as well.

What did I know, what did I know of

love's austere and lonely offices?
