And hope that these blooms of the dawn will be carried safely

### Around The World Summary In English

‘Around the World’ is a story about Mr. Phileas Fogg and his journey of the world with his companion Passepartout.
They started their journey from San Fransisco to New York, which was three thousand seven hundred and eighty six miles away. The train crossed many steep mountain slopes, deep canyons, curves, tunnels and bridges. Suddenly the train stopped when a herd of buffaloes came on the trade. The herd took a full three hours to cross the tracks. The train began to move again and headed for steep mountains. This was the most different part of the journey with its winding roads. They passed the highest point of their journey, 7524 feet above sea level. In a few hours they came out of the Rocky Mountains. The train stopped once again when the suspension bridge on Medicine River had some of its cables broken. However, the driver crossed it at maximum speed.
Next day when the train was moving forward, it was suddenly attacked by hundreds of Scour Indians. But they fled away when they saw soldiers rushing towards them.

### Around The World Summary In Hindi

Around the world’ मि. फिलिआस फॉग और उसकी अपने साथी पासपरत के साथ दुनिया की सैर की कहानी है। उन्होंने सैन फ्रान्सिसको से न्यूयार्क तक यात्रा की जो तीन हजार सात सौ और छियासी मील दूर था। ट्रेन खड़ी पर्वतीय ढलानों और गहरी घाटियों, मोड़ों, सुरंगों और पुलों से गुजरा। अचानक ट्रेन रुक गई जब भैंसों की एक झुण्ड पटरी पर आ गई। झुण्ड को पटरी पार करने में पूरे तीन घंटे लग गए। ट्रेन फिर से चल पड़ी और खड़ी चढ़ाई वाले पर्वतों की ओर बढ़ी। घुमावदार सड़कों वाली यात्रा का यह सबसे मुश्किल भाग था। वे अपनी यात्रा के सबसे ऊँचे स्थान, जो समुद्रतल से 1524 फुट ऊपर था, से गुजरे। कुछ ही घंटों में वे पथरीले पहाड़ों से शहर आ गए। ट्रेन एक बार फिर रुकी जब मेडिसिन नदी पर बने झूला पुल के मोटे रस्से टूट गए। लेकिन ड्राइवर अधिकतम गति के सहारे उसे पार कर लिया।
दूसरे दिन जब ट्रेन आगे बढ़ रही थी, सैकड़ों सिओक्स इंडियंस ने उस पर आक्रमण कर दिया। लेकिन जैसे ही उन्होंने | सिपाहियों को अपनी ओर तेजी से बढ़ते देखा, वे भाग खड़े हुए।

Class 5 English Chapter 2 Around The World Hindi Translation Of The Lesson

1. Mr. Phileas Fogg lays a bet with some of his friends to go around the world in 80 days. This is the story of how he travelled with his companion, Passepartout. That evening they were on the train from San Fransisco to New York, which was three thousand seven hundred and eighty six miles away. In seven days the train would take them from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. The train steamed through California at full speed. It crossed steep mountain slopes, deep canyons and hair-raising curves moving through a few tunnels and bridges.
Word-Meanings-Bet (बेट)–शर्त, बाजी। Companion (कम्पेनियन)-friend, साथी। Steamed (स्टीम्ड)-passed, गुजरी। Canyons (केयन्ज)-passes, घाटियाँ। Tunnels (टनेल्स)underground passage, सुरंग।
अनुवाद : मि. फिलिआस ने अपने कुछ मित्रों से 80 दिनों में पूरी दुनिया की यात्रा करने की शर्त रखी। यह कहानी है कैसे उसने अपने मित्र पासपरतू के साथ यात्रा की।
उस शाम वे सैन फ्रांसिस्को से न्यूयार्क जाने वाली ट्रेन में थे जो तीन हजार सात सौ और छियासी मील दूर था। सात दिनों में ट्रेन उनको प्रशांत महासागर से अटलांटिक महासागर को ले जाएगी।
ट्रेन कैलिफोर्निया से पूरी गति से गुजरी। उसने खड़ी पर्वतीय ढलानों, गहरी घाटियों और रोंगटे खड़े करने वाले मोड़ों, कुछ सुरंगों और पुलों से गुजरते हुए पार किया।

2. Suddenly the train slowed down as a herd of buffaloes charged across the railway track. The train was forced to stop till the procession passed like a great brown river. The herd took a full three hours to cross the tracks. Night had fallen by the time the train could move again.
The train headed for the steep mountains. This was the most difficult part of the journey with its winding roads. They passed the highest point of their journey, 7524 feet above sea level. In a few hours they would be out of the Rocky Mountains.
After the passengers had taken their breakfast the train gave a shrill whistle and braked with a jerk and came to a halt. Passepartout, a French passenger went to see what the matter was. There was nothing to be seen. The train had halted in the middle of nowhere. There was no station in sight.
Word-Meanings-Procession (प्रोशेसन) जुलूस। Steep (स्टीप)-sloping sharply, तेज ढाल। Shrill (शिल)-piercing, कर्कश। Jerk (जर्क)–झटका। Halted (हॉल्टेड)-stopped, रुका।
अनुवाद : अचानक ट्रेन की गति धीमी हो गई क्योंकि भैंसों के एक झुण्ड ने रेल की पटरी पर धावा बोल दिया। ट्रेन को रुकने के लिए विवश होना पड़ा तब तक जब तक कि उनका झुण्ड (जुलूस) एक विशाल भूरी नदी की तरह गुजर नहीं गया। भैंसों के झुण्ड को पूरे तीन घंटे पटरी पर पार करने में लगे। जब तक ट्रेन फिर से चले, रात हो गई। ट्रेन खड़ी चढ़ाई वाले पहाड़ों की ओर बढ़ी। घुमावदार सड़कों वाली यात्रा का यह सबसे मुश्किल भाग था। वे अपनी यात्रा के सबसे ऊँची बिन्दु, जो समुद्र तल से 7524 फीट ऊपर थी, से गुजरे। कुछ ही घंटों में वे पथरीले पहाड़ों के बाहर आ गए।
यात्रियों के नाश्ता करने के बाद ट्रेन ने कर्कश सीटी बजाई और झटके के साथ रुक गई। पासपरतू, एक फ्रांसीसी यात्री, देखने चला गया कि बात क्या है। वहां कुछ भी दिखाई नहीं दे रहा था। ट्रेन एक सुनसान स्थान में रुकी थी। वहाँ कोई स्टेशन नहीं था।

3. He heard the signalman say. “The train can’t go on. The bridge near Medicine Bow won’t support the weight.” It was a suspension bridge and some of its cables were broken.
The driver of the train said, “Perhaps there is a chance of getting across the bridge by letting the train proceed at maximum speed.”
“All aboard,” said the conductor. The passengers got on the train and the driver reversed the train for nearly a mile. Then he gave another whistle. The train began to move forward so fast that it was frightening. The passengers had the feeling that the train was not resting on the tracks but was floating through air. As the engine shrieked and the train shuddered they were over the bridge in a flash!
As soon as they passed over the Medicine River, the bridge crashed down into the raging waters below. The train continued its course that evening without interruption.
Word-Meanings-Suspension bridge (सस्पेंसन ब्रिज)—झूला पुल। Perhaps (परहैप्स)शायद। Reversed (रिवर्ड)-पीछे ले गया।
अनुवाद : उसने सिग्नल वाले आदमी को कहते सुना, “ट्रेन आगे नहीं जा सकती है। मेडिसिन बाउ के पास वाला पुल भार को सहन नहीं कर सकेगा।” यह झूला पुल था और इसके कुछ मोटे रस्से टूटे हुए थे।
ट्रेन का ड्राइवर बोला, “शायद ट्रेन को अधिकतम गति से बढ़ाने पर पुल को पार करना आसान हो जाए।” कन्डक्टर ने कहा, “सभी ट्रेन में स्थान ग्रहण करें और ड्राइवर ट्रेन को करीब एक मील पीछे ले गया। उसके बाद उसने दूसरी सीटी दी। ट्रेन इतनी तेज गति से चलने लगी कि भय लगता था। यात्रियों को ऐसा एहसास होने लगा कि ट्रेन पटरी पर टिकी हुई नहीं है वरन् हवा में तैर कर आगे बढ़ रही है। जैसे ही इंजन ने चीख मारी और ट्रेन हिली, वे क्षणभर में पुल पार कर लिए। ज्यों ही उन्होंने मेडिसिन नदी को पार किया, पुल टूटकर नीचे तीव्र गति से बहते पानी में जा गिरा। ट्रेन उसे शाम बिना किसी व्यवधान के आगे बढ़ती गई।

4. As the train moved forward the next day, it was suddenly attacked by hundreds of Sioux Indians (a tribe of native Red Indians). Many of them appeared from all sides, jumped on to the moving train and pulled themselves up the steps. They were armed with rifles. Some of the travellers had revolvers. They defended themselves bravely by answering with pistol shots.
The conductor cried out, “The train must be stopped or we are lost!” “I will go,” said Passepartout. He opened a door and unseen by the Red Indians he slipped under the racing train, and holding on to the chains he slowly reached the engine. Then he separated the engine from the coaches. They started to slow down. They had neared a station where soldiers, attracted by the sound of shots, hurried towards the train. The Red Indians on board saw them and quickly jumped off before the train stopped entirely.
Word-Meanings-Defended (डिफेन्डेड)-saved, बचाए। Racing (रसिंग)-running, दौड़ते हुए। Hurried (हरिड)—rushed, दौड़े। Entirely (इनटायलिं)–completely, पूरी तरह से।
अनुवाद : अगले दिन जब ट्रेन आगे बढ़ रही थी, उस पर हठात् सैकड़ों सिओक्स इंडिअन्स (रड इंडिअन्स की एक स्थानीय कबीला) ने धावा बोल दिया। उनमें से कई सभी तरह से आ गए, चलती ट्रेन पर कूद गए और पायदानों तक अपने को खींच लिए। वे सभी राइफल से लैश थे। कुछ यात्रियों के पास रिवाल्वर थे। उन्होंने बड़ी बहादुरी से पिस्तौल की गोलियां चलाकर अपनी रक्षा की।

कन्डक्टर चिल्ला उठा, “ट्रेन को रोक दो अन्यथा हम लोग मारे जायेंगे।” “मैं जाऊँगा”, पासपरतू ने कहा। उसने एक दरवाजा खोला और रेड इंडिअन्स की नजरों से बचकर चलती ट्रेन के नीचे फिसल गया और जंजीर को पकड़े हुए। धीरे-धीरे इंजन तक पहुँच गया। फिर उसने इंजन को डिब्बों से अलग कर दिया। धीरे-धीरे उनकी गति कम पड़ने लगी।
वे एक स्टेशन के समीप पहुँच गए थे जहाँ सिपाही गोलियों की आवाज सुनकर ट्रेन की ओर दौड़ पड़े थे। ट्रेन में सवार रेड इंडिअन्स ने उन्हें देखा और उसके पूरी तरह रुकने से पहले ही छलांग लगाकर ट्रेन से उतर गए।
