Read the following passage carefully and answer questions from 5to10:

It should be remembered that the nationalist movement in India, like all nationalistmovements, was essentially a bourgeois movement. It represented the natural historical stageof development, and to consider it or to criticise it as a working-class movement is wrong.Gandhi represented that movement and the Indian masses in relation to that movement to asupreme degree, and he became the voice of Indian people to that extent. The maincontribution of Gandhi to India and the Indian masses has been through the powerfulmovements which he launched through the National Congress. Through nation-wide actionhe sought to mould the millions, and largely succeeded in doing so, and changing them froma demoralised, timid and hopeless mass, bullied and crushed by every dominant interest, andincapable of resistance, into a people with self-respect and self-reliance, resisting tyranny,and capable of united action and sacrifice for a larger cause.Gandhi made people think of political and economic issues and every village and everybazaar hummed with argument and debate on the new ideas and hopes that filled the people.That was an amazing psychological change. The time was ripe for it, of course, andcircumstances and world conditions worked for this change. But a great leader is necessary totake advantage of circumstances and conditions. 

Gandhi was that leader, and he releasedmany of the bonds that imprisoned and disabled our minds, and none of us who experiencedit can ever forget that great feeling of release and exhilaration that came over the Indianpeople.Gandhi has played a revolutionary role in India of the greatest importance because heknew how to make the most of the objective conditions and could reach the heart of themasses, while groups with a more advanced ideology functioned largely in the air becausethey did not fit in with those conditions and could therefore not evoke any substantialresponse from the masses.It is perfectly true that Gandhi, functioning in the nationalist plane, does not think interms of the conflict of classes, and tries to compose their differences. But the action he hasindulged and taught the people has inevitably raised mass consciousness tremendously andmade social issues vital. 

Gandhi and the Congress must be judged by the policies they pursueand the action they indulge in. But behind this, personality counts and colours those policiesand activities. In the case of very exceptional person like Gandhi the question of personalitybecomes especially important in order to understand and appraise him. To us he hasrepresented the spirit and honour of India, the yearning of her sorrowing millions to be rid oftheir innumerable burdens, and an insult to him by the British Government or others has beenan insult to India and her people.
