May Day or International Workers Day is observed on May 1 all over the world today to commemorate the historical struggle and sacrifices of the working people toestablish an eight-hour workday. It is a public holiday in almost all the countries of the world. Since the Industrial Revolution(1) in the 18th and 19th centuries in Europe and the US, the workers in mills and factories had been working a long shift, fourteen or even more hours a day. On May 1st in 1886, inspired by the trade unions(2), half of the workers at the McCormic Harvester Company in Chicago went on strike demanding an eight-hour workday. Two days later, a workers’ rally was held near the McCormic Hervester Company and about 6000 workers had joined it. The rally was addressed by the labour leaders. They urged the workers to stand together, to go on with their struggle and not to give in to their bosses. Just at this moment some strikebreakers started leaving the meeting place. The strikers went down the street to bring them back. Suddenly about 200 policemen attacked them with clubs and revolvers. One striker was killed instantly, five or six others were seriously wounded and many of them were badly injured.

Fortnightly Examination

Read the passage below and answer the questions1-3:

Though a small country, Bangladesh has three World Heritage Sites: the historic Shatgombuj Mosque of Bagerhat, the ruins of the Buddhist Vihara at Paharpur and the Sundarbans. The Shatgambuj Mosque is a 15th century Islamic edifice situated in the suburbs of Bagerhat, on the age of the Sundarbans, some 175 km south-west of Dhaka. It is an enormous Moghul architectural site covering a large area. The Mosque is unique in that it has sixty pillars, which support seventy seven exquisitely curved domes that have been worn away with the passage of time. The mausoleum of the city’s founder khan Jahan Ali can be found nearby. With the declaration of the mosque as a world Heritage Site it is hoped that this beautiful architectural monument will be preserved from further decay.
The Buddhist Vihara at Paharpur, 200 kilometres north-west of Dhaka, was founded in the 7th century. It is the largest single Buddhist monastery in the Indian subcontinent which is also known as the Somapura Mahavira, the great Monastery. It was a renowned intellectual centre from the 7th century until the 17th century. Its layout is perfectly adapted to its religious function. This monastery-city represents a unique artistic achievement which has influenced Buddhist architecture as far away as Cambodia. It was declared a World Heritage Site in 1985 at the 9th session of the 21 member international committee.
