Question 13 (ii) Important

The author of the story ‘Journey to the End of the Earth’ describes Antarctica as a place of immense beauty and isolation. She also warns about the dangers of climate change and human impact on the environment. Imagine that you are a journalist who has accompanied the author on her trip to Antarctica. Write an article in about 150 words for a magazine or a newspaper highlighting the main points of the story and your own observations and opinions. 

You may begin this way:

Antarctica: A Journey to the Edge of the World

By (your name), (your designation)

Answer as written by the student:

Antarctica: A Journey to the Edge of the World

By (your name), (your designation)

Antarctica is the coldest, windiest and driest continent on Earth, and also one of the most fascinating and mysterious. I had the privilege of joining a group of high school students and teachers on a research expedition to this icy wonderland, led by Tishani Doshi, a poet and writer. Our aim was to learn more about this unique place and its role in the global climate system.

We boarded a ship from Ushuaia, Argentina, and crossed the Drake Passage, one of the roughest seas in the world. We saw whales, dolphins, penguins, seals and albatrosses along the way. We also witnessed the stunning beauty of icebergs, glaciers and mountains. We reached Antarctica after two days of sailing, and we were greeted by a vast expanse of white and blue.

We spent ten days in Antarctica, visiting various research stations, historical sites and wildlife habitats. We learned about the history, geography, geology, ecology and politics of Antarctica. We also participated in various scientific activities, such as measuring ice cores, collecting water samples, observing plankton and testing salinity . We met scientists from different countries who shared their knowledge and experience with us.

We also had some fun and adventure in Antarctica. We went on zodiac rides, kayaking trips, hiking tours and camping nights. We played soccer on the ice, made snowmen and snow angels, and even took a polar plunge in the freezing water. We enjoyed the silence and solitude of Antarctica, as well as the camaraderie and friendship of our group.

Antarctica was a life-changing experience for me. It made me appreciate the beauty and diversity of nature, as well as the fragility and vulnerability of our planet. It also made me aware of the threats and challenges that Antarctica faces due to climate change and human interference. It inspired me to take action and responsibility for protecting this precious place and its inhabitants.

Antarctica is not just a continent, but a state of mind. It is a place where you can discover yourself and your connection with the world. It is a place where you can witness the power and wonder of nature, as well as the courage and creativity of humans. It is a place where you can journey to the end of the earth, and also to the beginning of yourself.
