  Yes.the show goes on.No time to enjoy the glory of the last set of titles.It’s time toprepare for me next.Our Assembly Line is in place.It takes a whole year toprepare for the Miss World/Miss Universe contest.And the young hopefulsgive it their disciplined best almost as if they were preparing themselves for an ⅡT entrancetest or the Civil Services exam·

  So what,s wrong with that?Ifone set of kids can further their genetically gifted intellect,why can’t another set further a similarly gifted set of physicalattributes?If brainy kids go to coaching classes.why Can,t the pretty ones go to physical trainers?If cosmeticsurgery,dental cares,balanced diets and workoutsessions produce a happier,healthier and more self-confidentwoman who can takethe world in her stride,perhapsthat’s the way to go·

  Yes.we had just begun to accept it all.We had just begun to create the slots forthe brainy ones and the beauties.And then,suddenly we got a Mrs.World Aditi Gowatrikar with herdreamy green eyes. Brainy.beautiful and awonderful wife and mother to boot·The mother of a two。Year‘old who is also a doctor and asuper model.

  Yes.Aditi has shown US that it is possible todo it all.But can she really be a symbol of Indian

  womanhood assome carried—away journalists and event managers have suggested?Is she themodem day Mother India?The one who can inspire the thousands of mothers and wives to break outof the petty confines of the roles they are forced to play?Will she find an echoamong all those working-women dealingwith families,bosses and unsupportive husbands?To most women.the worldof AditiGowatrikar would seem like a different planet.

  参考译文

  我打开电视,又是她们——下一批世界小姐/环球小姐候选人。一样练习过的微笑,一样的招手姿势,一样的拥有不真实不纯正口音的主持人——一切都是一样的。

  是的。比赛开始了。没时间去享受上一轮头衔的荣耀。该为下一轮比赛做准备了。我们的流水线就位。准备世界小姐/环球小姐比赛需要整整一年的时间。这些充满希望的年轻人展示出了自己受过训练的最好的一面,几乎像是在准备伊利诺亚理工大学入学考试或是公务员考试。

  因此,那有什么问题吗?如果一批孩子能够发展自己遗传的天赋才能,另一批为何不能发展类似的有天赋的身体特性呢?如果聪明的孩子能去辅导班,那么漂亮的孩子为何不能去找仪态教练呢?如果整容手术、牙科护理、饮食平衡和健身能够使女人变得更快乐、更健康、更有自信,能够从容地面对世界,那么这条路就是对的。

  是的,我们才刚刚开始全盘接受这个事实。我们才刚刚开始为聪明和漂亮的孩子创造一些属于他们的位置。然后突然我们就看到了世界夫人阿迪提·高薇崔卡梦幻般的绿眼睛。美丽与智慧并存,既是好妻子又是好妈妈。这位两岁孩子的母亲,也是医生和超模。

  是的,阿迪提向我们展示了把这些都做到是可能的。但是她真的可以像那些热情的记者和活动经理所建议的那样成为印度女性的标志吗?她是现代的印度之母吗?是那个可以激励成千上万的母亲和妻子摆脱那个束缚她们、迫使她们一直扮演某些角色的狭窄空间的人吗?在那些应付家庭、老板以及无法为家里提供支持的老公的职业女性中,她会找到共鸣吗?对于大多数女性而言,阿迪提·高薇崔卡的世界似乎像一个不同的星球。

  参考答案及解析

  52.B【精析】细节题。根据第二段最后一句“And the young hopefuls give it their disciplined best almost as if they were preparing themselves for an ⅡT entrance test or the Civil Services exam.”可知“这些充满希望的年轻人展示出了自己受过训练的最好的一面,几乎像是在准备伊利诺亚理[大学入学考试或是公务员考试。”由此可知.这些选手对待比赛都很认真。故选B。

  53.C【精析】细节题。根据第三段第三句“If brainy kids go to coaching classes,why can’t the pretty ones go to physical trainers?”可知,作者认为聪明的孩子和漂亮的孩子都应该去发挥他们的优势。故选C。

  54.A【精析】推理题。根据最后一段最后一句“To most women,the world of Aditi Gowatrika would seem like a different planet.”可知“对于大多数女性而言,阿迪提·高薇崔卡的世界似乎像一个不同的星球。”由此可推断出,对大多数印度母亲和妻子而言,阿迪提·高薇崔卡的世界不切实际。故选A。

  55.B【精析】作者观点态度题。根据第三段以及第四段第一句“Yes,we had just begun to accept it all.”可知,作者认为既然聪明的孩子可以去上辅导班,漂亮的孩子也可以去找仪态教练。整容手术等方式可以让女人更快乐、健康和自信,那么这条路或许就是对的。而且我们已经开始完全接受这个事实。由此可以看出作者对选美比赛持宽容的态度。故选B。
