Humour is the butter that saves you from humiliation. If you refuse to be humiliated, you become invincible. Humour brings everyone together, while humiliation tears them apart. In a society torn with humiliation and insult, Humour is like a breath of fresh air.
Humour should be coupled with care and cancern. Humour can keep the spirit high, yet if overdone it leaves a bad taste. Humour without wisdom is shallow.

Q.2. Read the following passage carefully: 12
The “little Tramp” the unforgettable character Charlie Chaplin invented, was born purely by accident in 1915. While rushing to a film shoot in California, he grabbed clothes other people had left behind in the changing room. And when he emerged, he found he had created a personality everybody loved. A little guy in a bowler hat, a close filing jacket, a cane, outsize shoes and a brush like moustache!
Before long, Charlie found himself a star. That puzzled him, for he saw himself essentially as a shy British Music Hall Comedian. The U.S. acknowledged him as its king of silent film comedy. Soon, so did crowds all over the World. But life was not always a laugh for Charles spencer Chaplin. Both his parents were Music Hall artists who separated when Charlie was very young.
His childhood was very sad, for his mother never earned enough to look after Charlie and his older brother Sudney. Sometimes, Charlie had to sleep on the streets and forage food in the garbage. Charlie took his first bow on stage when his mother made her last appearance. It happened when her voice broke during a song. Her son stepped on stage and sang a popular song.
That’s when a star was boom. Through all these years of success, Charlie never forgot his troubled childhood. It made him recall a Christmas when he was denied two oranges and his bag of sweets for breaking a rule at the orphanage he went to after his mother’s death.
