    Answer any one of the following:                                                  
    Give views in favour of the statement, 'It is better to have brains than beauty.'
    Should a scientist's finding be suppressed if they seem disturbing? Give reasons for and against the topic.


    The entire machinery of the mankind which we call society does not work with beauty but with the help of brains. Intelligent people make laws and regulations which everyone who lives in the society obeys. Man is a social animal. Even Robinson Crusoe ultimately came back to human fold. The most important organ of a man is his brain. A man without brain is like a dumb driven animal.                                                                            
    Wise people of the world commented on beauty as it is nine days wonder. Some said that it is only
    skin deep, still others said, it turns into ugliness with the passage of time. A beautiful woman looks attractive and one likes to live with her. But her beauty is not giving any benefit to the people of the world. Hence beauty stands nowhere, when it is matched with brain.
    For the Topic: The scientists findings should be suppressed if they seem disturbing because:
    (a) they might hurt the feelings of the society or create panic, (b) religion also plays an important role part in the formation of the nature/world and its laws. So it cannot be ruled out.
    Against the Topic: The scientists findings should not be suppressed because:
    (a) They analyse the problems, devise solutions and execute them rationally.
    (b) They do not believe in superstitions but in the scientific and modern world of today, they work to reform or bring progress in the society as a whole.
    (Students can further describe the above arguments according to their individual responses)
