Make notes of the following passages.
Sarojini Naidu was born at Hyderabad, in the Deccan, in February, 1879. Perhaps in nothing was she more fortunate than in her parentage. Her father was himself a great scholar and a learned person both in Eastern philosophy and western science. He was the founder of the research, particularly the science of alchemy. His wife was a lady of fine poetic feeling, and had written in her younger days some lovely Bengali Lyrics.
Sarojini, like the rest of her family, was educated in her early years under her father’s own care. Very early indeed she began to show signs of poetic ability, and where sums and other dull matters should have appeared in her exercise books, little poems began to appear instead. When she was only twelve years old she passed the Matriculation examination at Madras University, and before she was fifteen she went fifteen she went to England as the holder of a State scholarship. But her studies at London and Cambridge were too strenuous for her youthful constitution, and she had a serious breakdown in health. From that time forward she suffered almost continually from pain and ill health. However, instead of giving way before this heavy handicap, she never allowed it to interfere with her duties. But worked on with unfailing courage and cheerfulness.
