The Time Machine Text

Chapter I

Chapter - अध्याय

The Time Traveller (for so it will be convenient to speak of him) was expounding a recondite matter to us. His grey eyes shone and twinkled, and his usually pale face was flushed and animated. The fire burned brightly, and the soft radiance of the incandescent lights in the lilies of silver caught the bubbles that flashed and passed in our glasses.

Our chairs, being his patents, embraced and caressed us rather than submitted to be sat upon, and there was that luxurious after-dinner atmosphere when thought roams gracefully free of the trammels of precision. And he put it to us in this way-marking the points with a lean forefinger-as we sat and lazily admired his earnestness over this new paradox (as we thought it) and his fecundity.

'I do not mean to ask you to accept anything without reasonable ground for it. You will soon admit as much as I need from you.

'So most people think. But wait a moment. Can an instantaneous cube exist?'

instantaneous - तात्कालिक

'Don't follow you,'said Filby.

'Can a cube that does not last for any time at all, have a real existence?'

Filby became pensive. 'Clearly,'the Time Traveller proceeded, 'any real body must have extension in four directions: it must have Length, Breadth, Thickness, and-Duration. But through a natural infirmity of the flesh, which I will explain to you in a moment, we incline to overlook this fact. There are really four dimensions, three which we call the three planes of Space, and a fourth, Time.

'Now, it is very remarkable that this is so extensively overlooked,'continued the Time Traveller, with a slight accession of cheerfulness.

'It is simply this. That Space, as our mathematicians have it, is spoken of as having three dimensions, which one may call Length, Breadth, and Thickness, and is always definable by reference to three planes, each at right angles to the others. But some philosophical people have been asking why three dimensions particularly-why not another direction at right angles to the other three?

Yesterday it was so high, yesterday night it fell, then this morning it rose again, and so gently upward to here.

'But,'said the Medical Man, staring hard at a coal in the fire, 'if Time is really only a fourth dimension of Space, why is it, and why has it always been, regarded as something different? And why cannot we move in Time as we move about in the other dimensions of Space?'

coal - कोयला

regarded - ध्यान, समझना, संबंध, सोचना, देखना, सम्मान, मानना, घूरना

The Time Traveller smiled. 'Are you sure we can move freely in Space? Right and left we can go, backward and forward freely enough, and men always have done so. I admit we move freely in two dimensions. But how about up and down? Gravitation limits us there.'

'My dear sir, that is just where you are wrong. That is just where the whole world has gone wrong. We are always getting away from the present moment.

The thing the Time Traveller held in his hand was a glittering metallic framework, scarcely larger than a small clock, and very delicately made.

He took one of the small octagonal tables that were scattered about the room, and set it in front of the fire, with two legs on the hearthrug. On this table he placed the mechanism.

There were also perhaps a dozen candles about, two in brass candlesticks upon the mantel and several in sconces, so that the room was brilliantly illuminated.

The Medical Man and the Provincial Mayor watched him in profile from the right, the Psychologist from the left. The Very Young Man stood behind the Psychologist. We were all on the alert.

The Time Traveller looked at us, and then at the mechanism. 'Well?'said the Psychologist.

'This little affair,'said the Time Traveller, resting his elbows upon the table and pressing his hands together above the apparatus, 'is only a model. It is my plan for a machine to travel through time. You will notice that it looks singularly askew, and that there is an odd twinkling appearance about this bar, as though it was in some way unreal.'He pointed to the part with his finger.

'It took two years to make,'retorted the Time Traveller. Then, when we had all imitated the action of the Medical Man, he said: 'Now I want you clearly to understand that this lever, being pressed over, sends the machine gliding into the future, and this other reverses the motion. This saddle represents the seat of a time traveller.

Presently I am going to press the lever, and off the machine will go. It will vanish, pass into future Time, and disappear. Have a good look at the thing. Look at the table too, and satisfy yourselves there is no trickery. I don't want to waste this model, and then be told I'm a quack.'

quack - बतख की बोली

There was a minute's pause perhaps. The Psychologist seemed about to speak to me, but changed his mind. Then the Time Traveller put forth his finger towards the lever. 'No,'he said suddenly. 'Lend me your hand.'And turning to the Psychologist, he took that individual's hand in his own and told him to put out his forefinger.

forth - आगे

So that it was the Psychologist himself who sent forth the model Time Machine on its interminable voyage. We all saw the lever turn. I am absolutely certain there was no trickery. There was a breath of wind, and the lamp flame jumped.

Voyage - समुद्री यात्रा, यात्रा{जल या विमान}, जलयात्रा

absolutely certain - पूर्ण निश्चित

breath - श्वास, साँस, दम

wind - हवा

flame - लौ, ज्वाला, शोला, लपट

One of the candles on the mantel was blown out, and the little machine suddenly swung round, became indistinct, was seen as a ghost for a second perhaps, as an eddy of faintly glittering brass and ivory; and it was gone-vanished! Save for the lamp the table was bare.

candles - बत्ती, शमा, ज्योतोर्मयता का एकक, मोमबत्ती, बत्ती का, मोमबती

Everyone was silent for a minute. Then Filby said he was damned.

silent - चुप

damned - शापित, (damn), अभिशाप देना

The Psychologist recovered from his stupor, and suddenly looked under the table. At that the Time Traveller laughed cheerfully. 'Well?'he said, with a reminiscence of the Psychologist. Then, getting up, he went to the tobacco jar on the mantel, and with his back to us began to fill his pipe.

recovered - अच्छा हो जाना, ठीक होना, अपने पर काबू पाना, पुनः प्राप्त करना

We stared at each other. 'look here,'said the Medical Man, 'are you in earnest about this? Do you seriously believe that that machine has travelled into time?'

look here - यहाँ देखो

seriously - गंभीर मसला, गंभीरता से, गंभीर रुप से, गंभीर मसला

'Certainly,'said the Time Traveller, stooping to light a spill at the fire. Then he turned, lighting his pipe, to look at the Psychologist's face. (The Psychologist, to show that he was not unhinged, helped himself to a cigar and tried to light it uncut.

stooping - झुक कर खड़ा होना, झुकना, नीचे गिरना, झुकाव, झपट्टा मारना

spill - छलकना, फैल जाना, गिर जाना, छलकाव, कागज की बत्ती, छलका हुआ

) 'What is more, I have a big machine nearly finished in there'-he indicated the laboratory-'and when that is put together I mean to have a journey on my own account.'

indicated - दिखाना, सूचित करना, संकेत करना, संकेत करना, इशारा करना

'You mean to say that that machine has travelled into the future?'said Filby.

'Into the future or the past-I don't, for certain, know which.'

After an interval the Psychologist had an inspiration. 'It must have gone into the past if it has gone anywhere,'he said.

interval - विराम, अंतराल, अन्तराल, स्वरारांतराल, विराम काल, मद्यान्तर

inspiration - उत्प्रेरणा, प्रेरणा, शानदार विचार, अंतःस्फुरण

'Why?'said the Time Traveller.

'Because I presume that it has not moved in space, and if it travelled into the future it would still be here all this time, since it must have travelled through this time.'

presume - मान लेना, चुनौती देना, साहस करना, मान लिया जाना

travelled through - मार्ग द्वारा यात्रा की

'But,'I said, 'If it travelled into the past it would have been visible when we came first into this room; and last Thursday when we were here; and the Thursday before that; and so forth!'

visible - दृश्य, प्रत्यक्ष, उन्मेष

'Serious objections,'remarked the Provincial Mayor, with an air of impartiality, turning towards the Time Traveller.

objections - विरोध, आपत्ति, एतराज़, आक्षेप, उज्र

remarked - करना, ध्यान, प्रतिक्रिया, ध्यान देना, टिप्पणी करना

impartiality - निष्पक्षता, अपक्षपात

'Not a bit,'said the Time Traveller, and, to the Psychologist: 'You think. You can explain that. It's presentation below the threshold, you know, diluted presentation.'

presentation - प्रदर्शन, व्याख्यान, उपहारअ, उत्सव, गर्भस्थिति

threshold - डेवढ़ी

diluted - फ़ीका करना, फ़ीका करना, कमज़ोर करना, गलना, पानी से पतला करना

'Of course,'said the Psychologist, and reassured us. 'That's a simple point of psychology. I should have thought of it. It's plain enough, and helps the paradox delightfully. We cannot see it, nor can we appreciate this machine, any more than we can the spoke of a wheel spinning, or a bullet flying through the air.

reassured - आश्वासन देना, फिर हिम्मत दिलाना, आश्वासन देना

psychology - मनोविज्ञान

plain - सादा

spinning - कताई, (spin) कताई

bullet - गोल सिरे वाला

flying through - उड़ रहा है

If it is travelling through time fifty times or a hundred times faster than we are, if it gets through a minute while we get through a second, the impression it creates will of course be only one-fiftieth or one-hundredth of what it would make if it were not travelling in time. That's plain enough.'He passed his hand through the space in which the machine had been. 'You see?'he said, laughing.

travelling through - यात्रा कर रहे हैं

gets through - पार करता है

impression - प्रभाव, असर

hundredth - सौंवाँ

We sat and stared at the vacant table for a minute or so. Then the

vacant - खाली, विचार शून्य, रिक्त, भावश्यून्य

Time Traveller asked us what we thought of it all.

'It sounds plausible enough to-night,'said the Medical Man; 'but wait until to-morrow. Wait for the common sense of the morning.'

plausible - मुमकिन

morrow - अगला दिन, कल/अगला दिन, अगला दिन

'Would you like to see the Time Machine itself?'asked the Time Traveller. And therewith, taking the lamp in his hand, he led the way down the long, draughty corridor to his laboratory.

therewith - उसके बाद

led - LED, , (lead) LED

draughty - हवादार

corridor - बरामदा, गलियारा

I remember vividly the flickering light, his queer, broad head in silhouette, the dance of the shadows, how we all followed him, puzzled but incredulous, and how there in the laboratory we beheld a larger edition of the little mechanism which we had seen vanish from before our eyes. Parts were of nickel, parts of ivory, parts had certainly been filed or sawn out of rock crystal.

flickering - झलक, टिमटिमाना, चमकना, झलकना, टिमटिमाहट, फड़फड़ाना, आना जाना

The thing was generally complete, but the twisted crystalline bars lay unfinished upon the bench beside some sheets of drawings, and I took one up for a better look at it. Quartz it seemed to be.

Bench - बैंच

Or is this a trick-like that ghost you showed us last Christmas?'

Christmas - क्रिसमस, क्रिस्मस, बड़ा दिन, ईद-ए-तवल्लुद

aloft - ऊँचा, हवा में, ऊपर

intend - चाहना, विचार होना, रखना, अर्थ लगाना, नियत करना, इरादा करना

None of us quite knew how to take it.

I caught Filby's eye over the shoulder of the Medical Man, and he winked at me solemnly.

winked - टिमटिमाना, आँख मारना, आँख झपकना, पलक झपकना, आँख झुकाना

solemnly - in a solemn manner

Chapter II

I think that at that time none of us quite believed in the Time Machine. The fact is, the Time Traveller was one of those men who are too clever to be believed: you never felt that you saw all round him; you always suspected some subtle reserve, some ingenuity in ambush, behind his lucid frankness.

suspected - समझना, लगना, क्षतिग्रस्त, पर शक करना, अपराधी समझना, संदेहास्पद

subtle - हल्का, जटिल, कुशाग्र, तीक्ष्ण, सूक्ष्म, परिष्कृत, गूढ़, संवेदी

ambush - घात लगाना

lucid - सुस्पष्ट, सुबोधगम्य

frankness - स्पष्टवादिता, मुँहफ़टपना

Had Filby shown the model and explained the matter in the Time Traveller's words, we should have shown him far less scepticism. For we should have perceived his motives; a pork butcher could understand Filby. But the Time Traveller had more than a touch of whim among his elements, and we distrusted him. Things that would have made the frame of a less clever man seemed tricks in his hands.

scepticism - संशयवाद, अविश्वास

perceived - अर्थ लगाना, देखना, महसूस करना, समझ लेना, समझ लेना

motives - प्रेरक, प्रयोजन, उद्देश्य, कारण, मकसद, हेतु, occasion

tricks - शरारत, बहकाना, धोखा, चाल, कठिन, , चालअ, तिकड़म, रंडीबाज़

It is a mistake to do things too easily. The serious people who took him seriously never felt quite sure of his deportment; they were somehow aware that trusting their reputations for judgment with him was like furnishing a nursery with egg-shell china.

deportment - आचरण, चाल ढाल

somehow - किसी भी तरह, किसी कारण से, जैसे तैसे, पता नहीं क्यों

aware - अवगत, परिचित, सचेत, आगाह

furnishing - सामान सजाना, (furnish) सामान सजाना

nursery - नर्सरी, संवर्धन स्थान, संवर्धन स्थान

shell - खोल, शैल, कौड़ी

So I don't think any of us said very much about time travelling in the interval between that Thursday and the next, though its odd potentialities ran, no doubt, in most of our minds: its plausibility, that is, its practical incredibleness, the curious possibilities of anachronism and of utter confusion it suggested. For my own part, I was particularly preoccupied with the trick of the model.

potentialities - अंतः शक्ति, क्षमता, शक्ति/सामर्थ्य, अंतः शक्ति

doubt - संदेह करना

plausibility - सत्याभास

practical - व्यावहारिक, अभ्यास सिद्ध, उपयोगी, क्रियात्मक, अभ्यास सिद्ध

preoccupied - चिंतामग्न किये रहना, पूर्वरूपेण ध्यान आकर्षित करना

That I remember discussing with the Medical Man, whom I met on Friday at the Linnaean. He said he had seen a similar thing at Tubingen, and laid considerable stress on the blowing out of the candle. But how the trick was done he could not explain.

whom - किस

laid - करना, गिरा देना, देना, संभोग, नक़्शा, रखना, डालना, गिर्ना

considerable - बहुत अधिक, महत्वपूर्ण, बहुत

blowing out - बुझाना

candle - मोमबत्ती, शमा

The next Thursday I went again to Richmond-I suppose I was one of the Time Traveller's most constant guests-and, arriving late, found four or five men already assembled in his drawing-room. The Medical Man was standing before the fire with a sheet of paper in one hand and his watch in the other. I looked round for the Time Traveller, and-'It's half-past seven now,'said the Medical Man.

Richmond - रिच्ह्मंड

most constant - सबसे निरंतर

assembled - एकत्रित होना, जमा होना, इकट्ठा करना, इकट्ठा करना, जमा होना

'I suppose we'd better have dinner?'

'Where's--?'said I, naming our host.

Host - मेजबान, किसी आयोजन का सूत्रधार

'You've just come? It's rather odd. He's unavoidably detained. He asks me in this note to lead off with dinner at seven if he's not back. Says he'll explain when he comes.'

unavoidably - अपरिहार्य रूप से, अपरिहार्य रूप से

detained - रोकना, फँस जाना, फँस जाना, रोक रखना

'It seems a pity to let the dinner spoil,'said the Editor of a well-known daily paper; and thereupon the Doctor rang the bell.

spoil - लाभ, दूषित करना, बिगाड़ देना, अधिक ध्यान देना, खराब हो जाना

The Psychologist was the only person besides the Doctor and myself who had attended the previous dinner. The other men were Blank, the Editor aforementioned, a certain journalist, and another-a quiet, shy man with a beard-whom I didn't know, and who, as far as my observation went, never opened his mouth all the evening.

Shy - दूर, कम, शर्मीला, संकोची, शर्मीली, चौंक जाना, भड़कैल, फेंकना

beard - tदाढी, दाढ़ी

observation - अवलोकन, प्रेक्षण

There was some speculation at the dinner-table about the Time Traveller's absence, and I suggested time travelling, in a half-jocular spirit. The Editor wanted that explained to him, and the Psychologist volunteered a wooden account of the 'ingenious paradox and trick'we had witnessed that day week.

speculation - सट्टेबाज़ी, विचार, चिंतन, अनुमान, मनन, अटकलबाज़ी, ईहा

He was in the midst of his exposition when the door from the corridor opened slowly and without noise. I was facing the door, and saw it first. 'Hallo!'I said. 'At last!'And the door opened wider, and the Time Traveller stood before us. I gave a cry of surprise. 'Good heavens! man, what's the matter?'cried the Medical Man, who saw him next. And the whole tableful turned towards the door.

midst - बीच

exposition - एक्स्पज़िशन

Hallo - हैलो

Good heavens - वहीं देवताओं!

tableful - टेबलफुल

He was in an amazing plight. His coat was dusty and dirty, and smeared with green down the sleeves; his hair disordered, and as it seemed to me greyer-either with dust and dirt or because its colour had actually faded. His face was ghastly pale; his chin had a brown cut on it-a cut half healed; his expression was haggard and drawn, as by intense suffering.

plight - गंभीर स्थिति

dusty - धूसर, धूल धूसरित, गंदा

smeared - मैला करना, दाग, गंदा करना, बदनाम करना, धब्बा, मानहानि

For a moment he hesitated in the doorway, as if he had been dazzled by the light. Then he came into the room. He walked with just such a limp as I have seen in footsore tramps. We stared at him in silence, expecting him to speak.

hesitated - हिचकिचाना, संकोच करना, संकोच करना

He said not a word, but came painfully to the table, and made a motion towards the wine. The Editor filled a glass of champagne, and pushed it towards him. He drained it, and it seemed to do him good: for he looked round the table, and the ghost of his old smile flickered across his face. 'What on earth have you been up to, man?'said the Doctor. The Time Traveller did not seem to hear.

painfully - अप्रीतिकर ढंग से, कष्टपूर्वक, अप्रीतिकर ढंग से

'Don't let me disturb you,'he said, with a certain faltering articulation. 'I'm all right.'He stopped, held out his glass for more, and took it off at a draught. 'That's good,'he said. His eyes grew brighter, and a faint colour came into his cheeks. His glance flickered over our faces with a certain dull approval, and then went round the warm and comfortable room.

disturb - परेशान करना, बाधा डालना, छेड़ना/सताना, विघ्न डालना

faltering - हिचक, लड़खड़ाता हुआ, डगमगाता, (falter)

Then he spoke again, still as it were feeling his way among his words. 'I'm going to wash and dress, and then I'll come down and explain things … Save me some of that mutton. I'm starving for a bit of meat.'

mutton - भेड़ का माँस, भेड़ का मांस

I'm starving - मैं भूखा हूँ

He looked across at the Editor, who was a rare visitor, and hoped he was all right. The Editor began a question. 'Tell you presently,'said the Time Traveller. 'I'm-funny! Be all right in a minute.'

rare - दुर्लभ

He put down his glass, and walked towards the staircase door. Again I remarked his lameness and the soft padding sound of his footfall, and standing up in my place, I saw his feet as he went out. He had nothing on them but a pair of tattered, blood-stained socks. Then the door closed upon him. I had half a mind to follow, till I remembered how he detested any fuss about himself.

For a minute, perhaps, my mind was wool-gathering. Then, 'Remarkable Behaviour of an Eminent Scientist,'I heard the Editor say, thinking (after his wont) in headlines. And this brought my attention back to the bright dinner-table.

Wool - ऊन

gathering - सभा, संग्रहण, सभाआ, जन समुदाय, भीड़, गरोह, (gather), इकट्ठा करना

wont - अभ्यस्त, स्वभाव, अभ्यास, आदत

'What's the game?'said the Journalist. 'Has he been doing the Amateur Cadger? I don't follow.'I met the eye of the Psychologist, and read my own interpretation in his face. I thought of the Time Traveller limping painfully upstairs. I don't think any one else had noticed his lameness.

amateur - शौकिया, अव्यवसायी

Cadger - कैडजर

interpretation - तफसीर

limping - खंजक, लँंगड़ा, (limp)

The first to recover completely from this surprise was the Medical Man, who rang the bell-the Time Traveller hated to have servants waiting at dinner-for a hot plate. At that the Editor turned to his knife and fork with a grunt, and the Silent Man followed suit. The dinner was resumed.

grunt - घुरघुराना, भुनभुनाना, भुनभुनानाना, कराह, सूअर की बोली

Conversation was exclamatory for a little while, with gaps of wonderment; and then the Editor got fervent in his curiosity. 'Does our friend eke out his modest income with a crossing? or has he his Nebuchadnezzar phases?'he inquired. 'I feel assured it's this business of the Time Machine,'I said, and took up the Psychologist's account of our previous meeting.

wonderment - विस्मय, अचरज

fervent - उत्कट, उत्सुकता भरी

curiosity - जिज्ञासा

eke - खींच लेना, बढ़ाना

The new guests were frankly incredulous. The Editor raised objections. 'What was this time travelling? A man couldn't cover himself with dust by rolling in a paradox, could he?'And then, as the idea came home to him, he resorted to caricature. Hadn't they any clothes-brushes in the Future?

dust - धूल, धूलि, tख़ाक, खाक

rolling in - रोलिंग इन

caricature - हास्यास्पद बनाना, हास्य चित्र, व्यंग्यचित्र

The Journalist too, would not believe at any price, and joined the Editor in the easy work of heaping ridicule on the whole thing. They were both the new kind of journalist-very joyous, irreverent young men. 'Our special correspondent in the Day after To-morrow reports,'the Journalist was saying-or rather shouting-when the Time Traveller came back.

heaping - ढेर लगना, ढेर लगना, ढेर लगाना, ढ़ेर, ज़खी़रा

ridicule - उपहास करना

joyous - आनंदमय, सानन्द

irreverent - धृष्ट, धृष्टतापूर्ण, श्रद्धाहीन, अश्रद्धालु

remained - रहना, बाकी रहना, भग्नावशेष, अवशेष, लाश, ठहरना, साथ रहना, शव

startled - चकित, चौंक जाना, चौंकाना, चौंका देना

chaps - फटाव, दरार, आदमी, गाल, जबड़ा, फटना, लड़का, दरकाना, बिवाई, छोकरा

The Time Traveller came to the place reserved for him without a word. He smiled quietly, in his old way. 'Where's my mutton?'he said. 'What a treat it is to stick a fork into meat again!'

reserved - संचय, अलग छोड़ देना, प्रतिबंध, संकोच

treat - इलाज करना, उपचार करना

stick - चुभाना, घुसेड़ना, भौंकना

'Story!'cried the Editor.

'Story be damned!'said the Time Traveller. 'I want something to eat. I won't say a word until I get some peptone into my arteries. Thanks. And the salt.'

peptone - पेप्टोन

arteries - मुख्य मार्ग, धमनी, रक्तवाहिनी, नब्ज

'One word,'said I. 'Have you been time travelling?'

'Yes,'said the Time Traveller, with his mouth full, nodding his head.

nodding - हँसते हुए, (nod) हँसते हुए

'I'd give a shilling a line for a verbatim note,'said the Editor. The Time Traveller pushed his glass towards the Silent Man and rang it with his fingernail; at which the Silent Man, who had been staring at his face, started convulsively, and poured him wine. The rest of the dinner was uncomfortable.

shilling - 1971 तक ब्रिटेन में प्रचलित एक सिक्का, (shill) 1971 तक ब्रिटेन में प्रचलित एक सिक्का

uncomfortable - बेचैन, तकलीफ़देह, अप्रिय, कष्टप्रद, बेआराम, असुविधाजनक

For my own part, sudden questions kept on rising to my lips, and I dare say it was the same with the others. The Journalist tried to relieve the tension by telling anecdotes of Hettie Potter. The Time Traveller devoted his attention to his dinner, and displayed the appetite of a tramp. The Medical Man smoked a cigarette, and watched the Time Traveller through his eyelashes.

sudden - आकस्मिक, अचानक, शीघ्र, औचक

The Silent Man seemed even more clumsy than usual, and drank champagne with regularity and determination out of sheer nervousness. At last the Time Traveller pushed his plate away, and looked round us. 'I suppose I must apologize,'he said. 'I was simply starving. I've had a most amazing time.'He reached out his hand for a cigar, and cut the end. 'But come into the smoking-room.

'But the thing's a mere paradox,'said the Editor.

'I can't argue to-night. I don't mind telling you the story, but I can't argue. I will,'he went on, 'tell you the story of what has happened to me, if you like, but you must refrain from interruptions. I want to tell it. Badly. Most of it will sound like lying. So be it! It's true-every word of it, all the same.

I don't mind - मुझे बिल्कुल मतलब नहीं है

I was in my laboratory at four o'clock, and since then … I've lived eight days … such days as no human being ever lived before! I'm nearly worn out, but I shan't sleep till I've told this thing over to you. Then I shall go to bed. But no interruptions! Is it agreed?'

shan - शान

'Agreed,'said the Editor, and the rest of us echoed 'Agreed.'And with that the Time Traveller began his story as I have set it forth. He sat back in his chair at first, and spoke like a weary man. Afterwards he got more animated. In writing it down I feel with only too much keenness the inadequacy of pen and ink-and, above all, my own inadequacy-to express its quality.

intonation - स्वरोच्चारण, सुर, स्वर शैली, स्वरविन्यास

Most of us hearers were in shadow, for the candles in the smoking-room had not been lighted, and only the face of the Journalist and the legs of the Silent Man from the knees downward were illuminated. At first we glanced now and again at each other. After a time we ceased to do that, and looked only at the Time Traveller's face.

Chapter III

'I told some of you last Thursday of the principles of the Time Machine, and showed you the actual thing itself, incomplete in the workshop. There it is now, a little travel-worn, truly; and one of the ivory bars is cracked, and a brass rail bent; but the rest of it's sound enough.

I expected to finish it on Friday, but on Friday, when the putting together was nearly done, I found that one of the nickel bars was exactly one inch too short, and this I had to get remade; so that the thing was not complete until this morning. It was at ten o'clock to-day that the first of all Time Machines began its career.

inch - एक फुट का 12 वां भाग, इंच

remade - पुनर्निर्मित, (remake) पुनर्निर्मित

I gave it a last tap, tried all the screws again, put one more drop of oil on the quartz rod, and sat myself in the saddle. I suppose a suicide who holds a pistol to his skull feels much the same wonder at what will come next as I felt then. I took the starting lever in one hand and the stopping one in the other, pressed the first, and almost immediately the second.

I seemed to reel; I felt a nightmare sensation of falling; and, looking round, I saw the laboratory exactly as before. Had anything happened? For a moment I suspected that my intellect had tricked me. Then I noted the clock. A moment before, as it seemed, it had stood at a minute or so past ten; now it was nearly half-past three!

'I drew a breath, set my teeth, gripped the starting lever with both hands, and went off with a thud. The laboratory got hazy and went dark. Mrs. Watchett came in and walked, apparently without seeing me, towards the garden door. I suppose it took her a minute or so to traverse the place, but to me she seemed to shoot across the room like a rocket. I pressed the lever over to its extreme position.

The night came like the turning out of a lamp, and in another moment came to-morrow. The laboratory grew faint and hazy, then fainter and ever fainter.

'I am afraid I cannot convey the peculiar sensations of time travelling. They are excessively unpleasant. There is a feeling exactly like that one has upon a switchback-of a helpless headlong motion!

The dim suggestion of the laboratory seemed presently to fall away from me, and I saw the sun hopping swiftly across the sky, leaping it every minute, and every minute marking a day.

Presently, as I went on, still gaining velocity, the palpitation of night and day merged into one continuous greyness; the sky took on a wonderful deepness of blue, a splendid luminous color like that of early twilight; the jerking sun became a streak of fire, a brilliant arch, in space; the moon a fainter fluctuating band; and I could see nothing of the stars, save now and then a brighter circle flickering in the blue.

'The landscape was misty and vague. I was still on the hill-side upon which this house now stands, and the shoulder rose above me grey and dim.

'The unpleasant sensations of the start were less poignant now. They merged at last into a kind of hysterical exhilaration.

What strange developments of humanity, what wonderful advances upon our rudimentary civilization, I thought, might not appear when I came to look nearly into the dim elusive world that raced and fluctuated before my eyes!

'The peculiar risk lay in the possibility of my finding some substance in the space which I, or the machine, occupied.

But to come to a stop involved the jamming of myself, molecule by molecule, into whatever lay in my way; meant bringing my atoms into such intimate contact with those of the obstacle that a profound chemical reaction-possibly a far-reaching explosion-would result, and blow myself and my apparatus out of all possible dimensions-into the Unknown.

The fact is that, insensibly, the absolute strangeness of everything, the sickly jarring and swaying of the machine, above all, the feeling of prolonged falling, had absolutely upset my nerve. I told myself that I could never stop, and with a gust of petulance I resolved to stop forthwith.

'There was the sound of a clap of thunder in my ears. I may have been stunned for a moment. A pitiless hail was hissing round me, and I was sitting on soft turf in front of the overset machine.

I was on what seemed to be a little lawn in a garden, surrounded by rhododendron bushes, and I noticed that their mauve and purple blossoms were dropping in a shower under the beating of the hail-stones.

'My sensations would be hard to describe. As the columns of hail grew thinner, I saw the white figure more distinctly. It was very large, for a silver birch-tree touched its shoulder.

The pedestal, it appeared to me, was of bronze, and was thick with verdigris. It chanced that the face was towards me; the sightless eyes seemed to watch me; there was the faint shadow of a smile on the lips. It was greatly weather-worn, and that imparted an unpleasant suggestion of disease. I stood looking at it for a little space-half a minute, perhaps, or half an hour.

'Already I saw other vast shapes-huge buildings with intricate parapets and tall columns, with a wooded hill-side dimly creeping in upon me through the lessening storm.

The grey downpour was swept aside and vanished like the trailing garments of a ghost. Above me, in the intense blue of the summer sky, some faint brown shreds of cloud whirled into nothingness.

I felt naked in a strange world. I felt as perhaps a bird may feel in the clear air, knowing the hawk wings above and will swoop. My fear grew to frenzy.

'But with this recovery of a prompt retreat my courage recovered. I looked more curiously and less fearfully at this world of the remote future.

'Then I heard voices approaching me. Coming through the bushes by the White Sphinx were the heads and shoulders of men running.

'He struck me as being a very beautiful and graceful creature, but indescribably frail. His flushed face reminded me of the more beautiful kind of consumptive-that hectic beauty of which we used to hear so much. At the sight of him I suddenly regained confidence. I took my hands from the machine.

'In another moment we were standing face to face, I and this fragile thing out of futurity. He came straight up to me and laughed into my eyes.

liquid - द्रव, तरल

tongue - जीभ, tज़बान, जिह्वा, लिसान

'There were others coming, and presently a little group of perhaps eight or ten of these exquisite creatures were about me. One of them addressed me. It came into my head, oddly enough, that my voice was too harsh and deep for them. So I shook my head, and, pointing to my ears, shook it again.

Then I felt other soft little tentacles upon my back and shoulders. They wanted to make sure I was real. There was nothing in this at all alarming. Indeed, there was something in these pretty little people that inspired confidence-a graceful gentleness, a certain childlike ease. And besides, they looked so frail that I could fancy myself flinging the whole dozen of them about like nine-pins.

But I made a sudden motion to warn them when I saw their little pink hands feeling at the Time Machine. Happily then, when it was not too late, I thought of a danger I had hitherto forgotten, and reaching over the bars of the machine I unscrewed the little levers that would set it in motion, and put these in my pocket. Then I turned again to see what I could do in the way of communication.

'And then, looking more nearly into their features, I saw some further peculiarities in their Dresden-china type of prettiness. Their hair, which was uniformly curly, came to a sharp end at the neck and cheek; there was not the faintest suggestion of it on the face, and their ears were singularly minute. The mouths were small, with bright red, rather thin lips, and the little chins ran to a point.

'As they made no effort to communicate with me, but simply stood round me smiling and speaking in soft cooing notes to each other, I began the conversation. I pointed to the Time Machine and to myself. Then hesitating for a moment how to express time, I pointed to the sun.

'For a moment I was staggered, though the import of his gesture was plain enough. The question had come into my mind abruptly: were these creatures fools? You may hardly understand how it took me.

Then one of them suddenly asked me a question that showed him to be on the intellectual level of one of our five-year-old children-asked me, in fact, if I had come from the sun in a thunderstorm! It let loose the judgment I had suspended upon their clothes, their frail light limbs, and fragile features. A flow of disappointment rushed across my mind.

'The building had a huge entry, and was altogether of colossal dimensions.

I saw a number of tall spikes of strange white flowers, measuring a foot perhaps across the spread of the waxen petals.

Several more brightly clad people met me in the doorway, and so we entered, I, dressed in dingy nineteenth-century garments, looking grotesque enough, garlanded with flowers, and surrounded by an eddying mass of bright, soft-colored robes and shining white limbs, in a melodious whirl of laughter and laughing speech.

The floor was made up of huge blocks of some very hard white metal, not plates nor slabs-blocks, and it was so much worn, as I judged by the going to and fro of past generations, as to be deeply channelled along the more frequented ways. Transverse to the length were innumerable tables made of slabs of polished stone, raised perhaps a foot from the floor, and upon these were heaps of fruits.

Some I recognized as a kind of hypertrophied raspberry and orange, but for the most part they were strange.

'Between the tables was scattered a great number of cushions. Upon these my conductors seated themselves, signing for me to do likewise. With a pretty absence of ceremony they began to eat the fruit with their hands, flinging peel and stalks, and so forth, into the round openings in the sides of the tables. I was not loath to follow their example, for I felt thirsty and hungry.

As I did so I surveyed the hall at my leisure.

'And perhaps the thing that struck me most was its dilapidated look. The stained-glass windows, which displayed only a geometrical pattern, were broken in many places, and the curtains that hung across the lower end were thick with dust. And it caught my eye that the corner of the marble table near me was fractured. Nevertheless, the general effect was extremely rich and picturesque.

There were, perhaps, a couple of hundred people dining in the hall, and most of them, seated as near to me as they could come, were watching me with interest, their little eyes shining over the fruit they were eating. All were clad in the same soft and yet strong, silky material.

dining - हो हल्ला, शोरगुल, शोरगुल करना, हंगामा

silky - रेशमी, रेशम सा नरम

'Fruit, by the by, was all their diet. These people of the remote future were strict vegetarians, and while I was with them, in spite of some carnal cravings, I had to be frugivorous also. Indeed, I found afterwards that horses, cattle, sheep, dogs, had followed the Ichthyosaurus into extinction.

But the fruits were very delightful; one, in particular, that seemed to be in season all the time I was there-a floury thing in a three-sided husk-was especially good, and I made it my staple. At first I was puzzled by all these strange fruits, and by the strange flowers I saw, but later I began to perceive their import.

'However, I am telling you of my fruit dinner in the distant future now. So soon as my appetite was a little checked, I determined to make a resolute attempt to learn the speech of these new men of mine. Clearly that was the next thing to do. The fruits seemed a convenient thing to begin upon, and holding one of these up I began a series of interrogative sounds and gestures.

attempts - प्रयास, प्रयत्न, कोशिश करना, प्रयास करना, कोशिश करना

immense - असीम, अमित, विपल, विशाल

" But it was slow work, and the little people soon tired and wanted to get away from my interrogations, so I determined, rather of necessity, to let them give their lessons in little doses when they felt inclined.

'A queer thing I soon discovered about my little hosts, and that was their lack of interest.

It is odd, too, how speedily I came to disregard these little people. I went out through the portal into the sunlit world again as soon as my hunger was satisfied. I was continually meeting more of these men of the future, who would follow me a little distance, chatter and laugh about me, and, having smiled and gesticulated in a friendly way, leave me again to my own devices.

'The calm of evening was upon the world as I emerged from the great hall, and the scene was lit by the warm glow of the setting sun. At first things were very confusing.

I resolved to mount to the summit of a crest, perhaps a mile and a half away, from which I could get a wider view of this our planet in the year Eight Hundred and Two Thousand Seven Hundred and One A.D. For that, I should explain, was the date the little dials of my machine recorded.

summit - शिखर

crest - शिखर, शिखर तक पहुँचना, ढाल, पर्रों का तुर्रा लगाना, कुल चिह्न

A little way up the hill, for instance, was a great heap of granite, bound together by masses of aluminium, a vast labyrinth of precipitous walls and crumpled heaps, amidst which were thick heaps of very beautiful pagoda-like plants-nettles possibly-but wonderfully tinted with brown about the leaves, and incapable of stinging.

It was evidently the derelict remains of some vast structure, to what end built I could not determine. It was here that I was destined, at a later date, to have a very strange experience-the first intimation of a still stranger discovery-but of that I will speak in its proper place.

'Looking round with a sudden thought, from a terrace on which I rested for a while, I realized that there were no small houses to be seen. Apparently the single house, and possibly even the household, had vanished. Here and there among the greenery were palace-like buildings, but the house and the cottage, which form such characteristic features of our own English landscape, had disappeared.

'"Communism," said I to myself.

'And on the heels of that came another thought. I looked at the half-dozen little figures that were following me. Then, in a flash, I perceived that all had the same form of costume, the same soft hairless visage, and the same girlish rotundity of limb. It may seem strange, perhaps, that I had not noticed this before. But everything was so strange. Now, I saw the fact plainly enough.

In costume, and in all the differences of texture and bearing that now mark off the sexes from each other, these people of the future were alike. And the children seemed to my eyes to be but the miniatures of their parents. I judged, then, that the children of that time were extremely precocious, physically at least, and I found afterwards abundant verification of my opinion.

'Seeing the ease and security in which these people were living, I felt that this close resemblance of the sexes was after all what one would expect; for the strength of a man and the softness of a woman, the institution of the family, and the differentiation of occupations are mere militant necessities of an age of physical force; where population is balanced and abundant, much childbearing becomes an evil rather than a blessing to the State; where violence comes but rarely and off-spring are secure, there is less necessity-indeed there is no necessity-for an efficient family, and the specialization of the sexes with reference to their children's needs disappears. We see some beginnings of this even in our own time, and in this future age it was complete. This, I must remind you, was my speculation at the time. Later, I was to appreciate how far it fell short of the reality.

'While I was musing upon these things, my attention was attracted by a pretty little structure, like a well under a cupola. I thought in a transitory way of the oddness of wells still existing, and then resumed the thread of my speculations. There were no large buildings towards the top of the hill, and as my walking powers were evidently miraculous, I was presently left alone for the first time.

With a strange sense of freedom and adventure I pushed on up to the crest.

'There I found a seat of some yellow metal that I did not recognize, corroded in places with a kind of pinkish rust and half smothered in soft moss, the arm-rests cast and filed into the resemblance of griffins'heads. I sat down on it, and I surveyed the broad view of our old world under the sunset of that long day. It was as sweet and fair a view as I have ever seen.

The sun had already gone below the horizon and the west was flaming gold, touched with some horizontal bars of purple and crimson.

truth - सच

facet - checkपहलू

'It seemed to me that I had happened upon humanity upon the wane. The ruddy sunset set me thinking of the sunset of mankind. For the first time I began to realize an odd consequence of the social effort in which we are at present engaged. And yet, come to think, it is a logical consequence enough. Strength is the outcome of need; security sets a premium on feebleness.

The work of ameliorating the conditions of life-the true civilizing process that makes life more and more secure-had gone steadily on to a climax. One triumph of a united humanity over Nature had followed another. Things that are now mere dreams had become projects deliberately put in hand and carried forward. And the harvest was what I saw!

We improve our favourite plants and animals-and how few they are-gradually by selective breeding; now a new and better peach, now a seedless grape, now a sweeter and larger flower, now a more convenient breed of cattle. We improve them gradually, because our ideals are vague and tentative, and our knowledge is very limited; because Nature, too, is shy and slow in our clumsy hands.

Some day all this will be better organized, and still better. That is the drift of the current in spite of the eddies.

In the end, wisely and carefully we shall readjust the balance of animal and vegetable life to suit our human needs.

'This adjustment, I say, must have been done, and done well; done indeed for all Time, in the space of Time across which my machine had leaped. The air was free from gnats, the earth from weeds or fungi; everywhere were fruits and sweet and delightful flowers; brilliant butterflies flew hither and thither.

'Social triumphs, too, had been effected. I saw mankind housed in splendid shelters, gloriously clothed, and as yet I had found them engaged in no toil.

paradise - वैकुण्ठ, स्वर्ग, जन्नत ersianized, फिरदौस

And the institution of the family, and the emotions that arise therein, the fierce jealousy, the tenderness for offspring, parental self-devotion, all found their justification and support in the imminent dangers of the young. Now, where are these imminent dangers?

'I thought of the physical slightness of the people, their lack of intelligence, and those big abundant ruins, and it strengthened my belief in a perfect conquest of Nature. For after the battle comes Quiet. Humanity had been strong, energetic, and intelligent, and had used all its abundant vitality to alter the conditions under which it lived. And now came the reaction of the altered conditions.

'Under the new conditions of perfect comfort and security, that restless energy, that with us is strength, would become weakness.

And in a state of physical balance and security, power, intellectual as well as physical, would be out of place. For countless years I judged there had been no danger of war or solitary violence, no danger from wild beasts, no wasting disease to require strength of constitution, no need of toil.

outlet - सकेट, द्वार, दुकान, निकास द्वार, विसर्जन केन्द्र, निर्गम द्वार

No doubt the exquisite beauty of the buildings I saw was the outcome of the last surgings of the now purposeless energy of mankind before it settled down into perfect harmony with the conditions under which it lived-the flourish of that triumph which began the last great peace. This has ever been the fate of energy in security; it takes to art and to eroticism, and then come languor and decay.

keen - उत्सुक

grindstone - शाण

hateful - घृणित

'As I stood there in the gathering dark I thought that in this simple explanation I had mastered the problem of the world-mastered the whole secret of these delicious people. Possibly the checks they had devised for the increase of population had succeeded too well, and their numbers had rather diminished than kept stationary. That would account for the abandoned ruins.

Very simple was my explanation, and plausible enough-as most wrong theories are!

Chapter V

'As I stood there musing over this too perfect triumph of man, the full moon, yellow and gibbous, came up out of an overflow of silver light in the north-east. The bright little figures ceased to move about below, a noiseless owl flitted by, and I shivered with the chill of the night. I determined to descend and find where I could sleep.

'I looked for the building I knew. Then my eye travelled along to the figure of the White Sphinx upon the pedestal of bronze, growing distinct as the light of the rising moon grew brighter. I could see the silver birch against it. There was the tangle of rhododendron bushes, black in the pale light, and there was the little lawn. I looked at the lawn again. A queer doubt chilled my complacency.

silver birch - चांदी बेर

tangle - पुंज

chilled - ठंडा, ठण्डा, ठंडा किया हुआ, सिहरन, उदासी फैलाना, ठंडाना

conviction - अपराध सिद्धि, दोषसिद्धि, दृढ विश्वास, दोषी ठहराया जानाआ

'At once, like a lash across the face, came the possibility of losing my own age, of being left helpless in this strange new world. The bare thought of it was an actual physical sensation. I could feel it grip me at the throat and stop my breathing. In another moment I was in a passion of fear and running with great leaping strides down the slope.

lash - कोड़ा

grip - पकड़ना

throat - गला

strides - प्रगति, लम्बे डग भरना, लम्बे डग, लंबे डग लेकर चलना

Once I fell headlong and cut my face; I lost no time in stanching the blood, but jumped up and ran on, with a warm trickle down my cheek and chin. All the time I ran I was saying to myself: "They have moved it a little, pushed it under the bushes out of the way." Nevertheless, I ran with all my might.

stanching - बंद करना, (stanch) बंद करना

trickle - टपकाना, टपकना, रिसाव, धीरे धीरे भेजना, रिसना, अल्पमात्रा

All the time, with the certainty that sometimes comes with excessive dread, I knew that such assurance was folly, knew instinctively that the machine was removed out of my reach. My breath came with pain. I suppose I covered the whole distance from the hill crest to the little lawn, two miles perhaps, in ten minutes. And I am not a young man.

'When I reached the lawn my worst fears were realized. Not a trace of the thing was to be seen. I felt faint and cold when I faced the empty space among the black tangle of bushes.

empty space - खाली स्थान

furiously - in a furious manner, angrily, frantically

Above me towered the sphinx, upon the bronze pedestal, white, shining, leprous, in the light of the rising moon. It seemed to smile in mockery of my dismay.

mockery - उपहास, विद्रूपिका, मज़ाक

dismay - निराश करना, निराशा, त्रस्त, हतोत्साहित होना, हतोत्साहित होना

'I might have consoled myself by imagining the little people had put the mechanism in some shelter for me, had I not felt assured of their physical and intellectual inadequacy. That is what dismayed me: the sense of some hitherto unsuspected power, through whose intervention my invention had vanished.

unsuspected - असंदिग्ध, अकल्पित, असंदेहास्पद

Yet, for one thing I felt assured: unless some other age had produced its exact duplicate, the machine could not have moved in time. The attachment of the levers-I will show you the method later-prevented any one from tampering with it in that way when they were removed. It had moved, and was hid, only in space. But then, where could it be?

duplicate - अनुलिपि, प्रतिलिपि बनाना, समरूप, दोहराना, अनुलिपि बनाना

attachment - लगाव

tampering - मुरझाव, (tamper) मुरझाव

'I think I must have had a kind of frenzy. I remember running violently in and out among the moonlit bushes all round the sphinx, and startling some white animal that, in the dim light, I took for a small deer. I remember, too, late that night, beating the bushes with my clenched fist until my knuckles were gashed and bleeding from the broken twigs.

Then, sobbing and raving in my anguish of mind, I went down to the great building of stone. The big hall was dark, silent, and deserted. I slipped on the uneven floor, and fell over one of the malachite tables, almost breaking my shin. I lit a match and went on past the dusty curtains, of which I have told you.

'There I found a second great hall covered with cushions, upon which, perhaps, a score or so of the little people were sleeping. I have no doubt they found my second appearance strange enough, coming suddenly out of the quiet darkness with inarticulate noises and the splutter and flare of a match. For they had forgotten about matches. "Where is my Time Machine?

" I began, bawling like an angry child, laying hands upon them and shaking them up together. It must have been very queer to them. Some laughed, most of them looked sorely frightened. When I saw them standing round me, it came into my head that I was doing as foolish a thing as it was possible for me to do under the circumstances, in trying to revive the sensation of fear.

For, reasoning from their daylight behaviour, I thought that fear must be forgotten.

daylight - दिन, सुबह, दिन का प्रकाश, दिन के उजाले

'Abruptly, I dashed down the match, and, knocking one of the people over in my course, went blundering across the big dining-hall again, out under the moonlight. I heard cries of terror and their little feet running and stumbling this way and that. I do not remember all I did as the moon crept up the sky. I suppose it was the unexpected nature of my loss that maddened me.

raved - अत्यधिक प्रशंसा करना, शिकायत करना, प्रशंसा करना, निंदा करना

I have a memory of horrible fatigue, as the long night of despair wore away; of looking in this impossible place and that; of groping among moon-lit ruins and touching strange creatures in the black shadows; at last, of lying on the ground near the sphinx and weeping with absolute wretchedness. I had nothing left but misery.

sparrows - एक प्रकार की छोटी चिड़िया, गौरैया

within - में, भीतर, अंदर, के अंदर, के अन्दर, के अन्तर्गत

'I sat up in the freshness of the morning, trying to remember how I had got there, and why I had such a profound sense of desertion and despair. Then things came clear in my mind. With the plain, reasonable daylight, I could look my circumstances fairly in the face. I saw the wild folly of my frenzy overnight, and I could reason with myself. "Suppose the worst?" I said.

desertion - परित्याग, अपसरण

fairly - पूरी तरह से, ठीक से, कामचलाऊ ढंग से, कामचलाऊ ढंग से

overnight - सहसा, रात का, एक रात में, रात भर का, रात भर, रातोँ रात, रातोरात

"Suppose the machine altogether lost-perhaps destroyed? It behoves me to be calm and patient, to learn the way of the people, to get a clear idea of the method of my loss, and the means of getting materials and tools; so that in the end, perhaps, I may make another." That would be my only hope, perhaps, but better than despair. And, after all, it was a beautiful and curious world.

behoves - उपयुक्त होना

'But probably, the machine had only been taken away. Still, I must be calm and patient, find its hiding-place, and recover it by force or cunning. And with that I scrambled to my feet and looked about me, wondering where I could bathe. I felt weary, stiff, and travel-soiled. The freshness of the morning made me desire an equal freshness. I had exhausted my emotion.

hiding-place - (hiding-place) छुपाने का स्थान

Indeed, as I went about my business, I found myself wondering at my intense excitement overnight. I made a careful examination of the ground about the little lawn. I wasted some time in futile questionings, conveyed, as well as I was able, to such of the little people as came by. They all failed to understand my gestures; some were simply stolid, some thought it was a jest and laughed at me.

I had the hardest task in the world to keep my hands off their pretty laughing faces. It was a foolish impulse, but the devil begotten of fear and blind anger was ill curbed and still eager to take advantage of my perplexity. The turf gave better counsel.

begotten - जन्म देना, उत्पन्न करना, किसी का पिता होना

I found a groove ripped in it, about midway between the pedestal of the sphinx and the marks of my feet where, on arrival, I had struggled with the overturned machine. There were other signs of removal about, with queer narrow footprints like those I could imagine made by a sloth. This directed my closer attention to the pedestal. It was, as I think I have said, of bronze.

It was not a mere block, but highly decorated with deep framed panels on either side. I went and rapped at these. The pedestal was hollow. Examining the panels with care I found them discontinuous with the frames. There were no handles or keyholes, but possibly the panels, if they were doors, as I supposed, opened from within. One thing was clear enough to my mind.

It took no very great mental effort to infer that my Time Machine was inside that pedestal. But how it got there was a different problem.

infer - अनुमान करना, अनुमान लगाना, साबित करना, निष्कर्ष निकालना

'I saw the heads of two orange-clad people coming through the bushes and under some blossom-covered apple-trees towards me. I turned smiling to them and beckoned them to me. They came, and then, pointing to the bronze pedestal, I tried to intimate my wish to open it. But at my first gesture towards this they behaved very oddly. I don't know how to convey their expression to you.

apple-trees - (apple-trees) सेब के पेड़

beckoned - संकेत करना, इशाराअना

oddly - आश्चर्यजनक रूप से, अजीब तरह से

Suppose you were to use a grossly improper gesture to a delicate-minded woman-it is how she would look. They went off as if they had received the last possible insult. I tried a sweet-looking little chap in white next, with exactly the same result. Somehow, his manner made me feel ashamed of myself. But, as you know, I wanted the Time Machine, and I tried him once more.

grossly - बुरी तरह से, बुरी तरह से

improper - अनुपयुक्त, असंगत, अनुचित, गलत, असमय

insult - निन्दा करना, अपमान करना

As he turned off, like the others, my temper got the better of me. In three strides I was after him, had him by the loose part of his robe round the neck, and began dragging him towards the sphinx. Then I saw the horror and repugnance of his face, and all of a sudden I let him go.

'But I was not beaten yet. I banged with my fist at the bronze panels. I thought I heard something stir inside-to be explicit, I thought I heard a sound like a chuckle-but I must have been mistaken. Then I got a big pebble from the river, and came and hammered till I had flattened a coil in the decorations, and the verdigris came off in powdery flakes.

The delicate little people must have heard me hammering in gusty outbreaks a mile away on either hand, but nothing came of it. I saw a crowd of them upon the slopes, looking furtively at me. At last, hot and tired, I sat down to watch the place. But I was too restless to watch long; I am too Occidental for a long vigil.

I could work at a problem for years, but to wait inactive for twenty-four hours-that is another matter.

inactive - निष्क्रिय, प्रभावहीन, बेकार, अस्कती

'I got up after a time, and began walking aimlessly through the bushes towards the hill again. "Patience," said I to myself. "If you want your machine again you must leave that sphinx alone. If they mean to take your machine away, it's little good your wrecking their bronze panels, and if they don't, you will get it back as soon as you can ask for it.

aimlessly - निरुद्देश्यता से, लक्ष्यहीनतापूर्वक, निरुद्देश्यता से

wrecking - विध्वंस, विनाश, (wreck)

To sit among all those unknown things before a puzzle like that is hopeless. That way lies monomania. Face this world. Learn its ways, watch it, be careful of too hasty guesses at its meaning. In the end you will find clues to it all.

" Then suddenly the humour of the situation came into my mind: the thought of the years I had spent in study and toil to get into the future age, and now my passion of anxiety to get out of it. I had made myself the most complicated and the most hopeless trap that ever a man devised. Although it was at my own expense, I could not help myself. I laughed aloud.

anxiety - चिंता, परेशानी

most complicated - सबसे जोरदार

'Going through the big palace, it seemed to me that the little people avoided me. It may have been my fancy, or it may have had something to do with my hammering at the gates of bronze. Yet I felt tolerably sure of the avoidance. I was careful, however, to show no concern and to abstain from any pursuit of them, and in the course of a day or two things got back to the old footing.

avoidance - परिहार

abstain - बचना/से दूर रहना, दूर रहना, मतदान में भाग नहीं लेना

I made what progress I could in the language, and in addition I pushed my explorations here and there. Either I missed some subtle point or their language was excessively simple-almost exclusively composed of concrete substantives and verbs. There seemed to be few, if any, abstract terms, or little use of figurative language.

exclusively - पूरी तरह से, केवल

concrete - कंक्रीट

verbs - क्रिया, क्रियापद

abstract - सारांश, निचोड

Their sentences were usually simple and of two words, and I failed to convey or understand any but the simplest propositions. I determined to put the thought of my Time Machine and the mystery of the bronze doors under the sphinx as much as possible in a corner of memory, until my growing knowledge would lead me back to them in a natural way.

propositions - समस्या, वचन, सुझाव, प्रस्ताव रखना[करना], प्रस्ताव

Yet a certain feeling, you may understand, tethered me in a circle of a few miles round the point of my arrival.

tethered - रस्सी, रस्सी से बाँधना, पगहा से बाँध

arrival - आगमन

'So far as I could see, all the world displayed the same exuberant richness as the Thames valley.

Here and there water shone like silver, and beyond, the land rose into blue undulating hills, and so faded into the serenity of the sky. A peculiar feature, which presently attracted my attention, was the presence of certain circular wells, several, as it seemed to me, of a very great depth. One lay by the path up the hill, which I had followed during my first walk.

Like the others, it was rimmed with bronze, curiously wrought, and protected by a little cupola from the rain. Sitting by the side of these wells, and peering down into the shafted darkness, I could see no gleam of water, nor could I start any reflection with a lighted match.

peering - देखना, ताकना, जोड़, सामंत, समकक्ष व्यक्ति, समकक्ष व्यक्ति

shafted - अन्यायपूर्ण व्यवहार करना, बरछा, धोखा देना, पिच्छाक्ष, किरणपुंज

gleam - किरण डालना

reflection - परावर्तन, प्रतिबिंब

But in all of them I heard a certain sound: a thud-thud-thud, like the beating of some big engine; and I discovered, from the flaring of my matches, that a steady current of air set down the shafts. Further, I threw a scrap of paper into the throat of one, and, instead of fluttering slowly down, it was at once sucked swiftly out of sight.

flaring - धधकना, फैल जाना, फैला हुआ होना, फैलाव

steady - दृढ़

scrap - टुकड़ा

fluttering - उत्तेजना, घबराहट, उतार चढाव, लहराना, हिलाना, फड़काअना

sucked - खींच लेना, दूध पिलाना, सोखना, आत्मसात करना, चुसना, दूध पीना

'After a time, too, I came to connect these wells with tall towers standing here and there upon the slopes; for above them there was often just such a flicker in the air as one sees on a hot day above a sun-scorched beach. Putting things together, I reached a strong suggestion of an extensive system of subterranean ventilation, whose true import it was difficult to imagine.

flicker - चमकना

scorched - जलना, बरबाद कर देना, जला देना, बरबाद कर देना, झुलस जाना

sanitary - सेनेटरी

obvious - ज़ाहिर

conclusion - समाप्ति, निष्कर्ष, अंतिम निर्णय, हश्र

'And here I must admit that I learned very little of drains and bells and modes of conveyance, and the like conveniences, during my time in this real future. In some of these visions of Utopias and coming times which I have read, there is a vast amount of detail about building, and social arrangements, and so forth.

But while such details are easy enough to obtain when the whole world is contained in one's imagination, they are altogether inaccessible to a real traveller amid such realities as I found here. Conceive the tale of London which a negro, fresh from Central Africa, would take back to his tribe!

What would he know of railway companies, of social movements, of telephone and telegraph wires, of the Parcels Delivery Company, and postal orders and the like? Yet we, at least, should be willing enough to explain these things to him! And even of what he knew, how much could he make his untravelled friend either apprehend or believe?

Telegraph - टेलीग्राफ़, दूरलेख, टेलिग्राफ़

wires - लाइन, तार लगाना, फीता, तार से बांधना, तार, तार देना

Then, think how narrow the gap between a negro and a white man of our own times, and how wide the interval between myself and these of the Golden Age! I was sensible of much which was unseen, and which contributed to my comfort; but save for a general impression of automatic organization, I fear I can convey very little of the difference to your mind.

sensible - विवेकपूर्ण, सतर्क, व्यावहारिक, समझदार, जानकार, उचित, तर्कसंगत

'In the matter of sepulture, for instance, I could see no signs of crematoria nor anything suggestive of tombs. But it occurred to me that, possibly, there might be cemeteries (or crematoria) somewhere beyond the range of my explorings. This, again, was a question I deliberately put to myself, and my curiosity was at first entirely defeated upon the point.

suggestive - जताने वाला, जताने वाला, सांकेतिक, इशारा करने वाला

remark - प्रतिक्रिया, ध्यान देना

infirm - अशक्त, बीमार, अस्थिर/अदृढ़, रुग्ण

'I must confess that my satisfaction with my first theories of an automatic civilization and a decadent humanity did not long endure. Yet I could think of no other. Let me put my difficulties.

Yet these people were clothed in pleasant fabrics that must at times need renewal, and their sandals, though undecorated, were fairly complex specimens of metalwork. Somehow such things must be made. And the little people displayed no vestige of a creative tendency. There were no shops, no workshops, no sign of importations among them.

'Then, again, about the Time Machine: something, I knew not what, had taken it into the hollow pedestal of the White Sphinx. Why? For the life of me I could not imagine. Those waterless wells, too, those flickering pillars. I felt I lacked a clue. I felt-how shall I put it?

Suppose you found an inscription, with sentences here and there in excellent plain English, and interpolated therewith, others made up of words, of letters even, absolutely unknown to you? Well, on the third day of my visit, that was how the world of Eight Hundred and Two Thousand Seven Hundred and One presented itself to me!

inscription - शिलालेख

interpolated - बीच में डालना

'That day, too, I made a friend-of a sort. It happened that, as I was watching some of the little people bathing in a shallow, one of them was seized with cramp and began drifting downstream. The main current ran rather swiftly, but not too strongly for even a moderate swimmer.

It will give you an idea, therefore, of the strange deficiency in these creatures, when I tell you that none made the slightest attempt to rescue the weakly crying little thing which was drowning before their eyes. When I realized this, I hurriedly slipped off my clothes, and, wading in at a point lower down, I caught the poor mite and drew her safe to land.

deficiency - कमी, दोष

A little rubbing of the limbs soon brought her round, and I had the satisfaction of seeing she was all right before I left her. I had got to such a low estimate of her kind that I did not expect any gratitude from her. In that, however, I was wrong.

rubbing - रबिंग, (rub), रगड़ना

estimate - अंदाज़ लगाना, आकलन, आकलन करना, मूल्य का अनुमान, आकलन करना

gratitude - आभार, कृतज्ञता, शुक्र r=śukr

'This happened in the morning. In the afternoon I met my little woman, as I believe it was, as I was returning towards my centre from an exploration, and she received me with cries of delight and presented me with a big garland of flowers-evidently made for me and me alone. The thing took my imagination. Very possibly I had been feeling desolate.

exploration - खोज, गवेक्षण

delight - ख़ुश, आनंद

garland - माला

desolate - सुनसान, निर्जन, वीरान

At any rate I did my best to display my appreciation of the gift. We were soon seated together in a little stone arbour, engaged in conversation, chiefly of smiles. The creature's friendliness affected me exactly as a child's might have done. We passed each other flowers, and she kissed my hands. I did the same to hers.

Then I tried talk, and found that her name was Weena, which, though I don't know what it meant, somehow seemed appropriate enough. That was the beginning of a queer friendship which lasted a week, and ended-as I will tell you!

appropriate - उपयुक्त

friendship - दोस्ती, मित्रता

'She was exactly like a child. She wanted to be with me always. She tried to follow me everywhere, and on my next journey out and about it went to my heart to tire her down, and leave her at last, exhausted and calling after me rather plaintively. But the problems of the world had to be mastered. I had not, I said to myself, come into the future to carry on a miniature flirtation.

Yet her distress when I left her was very great, her expostulations at the parting were sometimes frantic, and I think, altogether, I had as much trouble as comfort from her devotion. Nevertheless she was, somehow, a very great comfort. I thought it was mere childish affection that made her cling to me. Until it was too late, I did not clearly know what I had inflicted upon her when I left her.

Nor until it was too late did I clearly understand what she was to me. For, by merely seeming fond of me, and showing in her weak, futile way that she cared for me, the little doll of a creature presently gave my return to the neighbourhood of the White Sphinx almost the feeling of coming home; and I would watch for her tiny figure of white and gold so soon as I came over the hill.

fond - प्रिय

showing in - दिखा रहा है

doll - गुड़िया

neighbourhood - क्षेत्र, इलाका, पड़ोस, अड़ोस पड़ोस के लोग, प्रतिवैस

'It was from her, too, that I learned that fear had not yet left the world. She was fearless enough in the daylight, and she had the oddest confidence in me; for once, in a foolish moment, I made threatening grimaces at her, and she simply laughed at them. But she dreaded the dark, dreaded shadows, dreaded black things. Darkness to her was the one thing dreadful.

dreadful - भद्दा, शोचनीय, डरावना, विकट, अरुचिकर, भयंकर, भयानक

It was a singularly passionate emotion, and it set me thinking and observing. I discovered then, among other things, that these little people gathered into the great houses after dark, and slept in droves. To enter upon them without a light was to put them into a tumult of apprehension. I never found one out of doors, or one sleeping alone within doors, after dark.

insisted - अड़े रहना, जोर डालना, दृढ़ रहना, माँगना

slumbering - सोता हुआ, (slumber) सोता हुआ

'It troubled her greatly, but in the end her odd affection for me triumphed, and for five of the nights of our acquaintance, including the last night of all, she slept with her head pillowed on my arm. But my story slips away from me as I speak of her. It must have been the night before her rescue that I was awakened about dawn.

I had been restless, dreaming most disagreeably that I was drowned, and that sea anemones were feeling over my face with their soft palps. I woke with a start, and with an odd fancy that some greyish animal had just rushed out of the chamber. I tried to get to sleep again, but I felt restless and uncomfortable.

drowned - डुबा कर मारना, जलमग्न कर देना, डुबा कर मारना, डूबा कर मारना

It was that dim grey hour when things are just creeping out of darkness, when everything is colourless and clear cut, and yet unreal. I got up, and went down into the great hall, and so out upon the flagstones in front of the palace. I thought I would make a virtue of necessity, and see the sunrise.

'The moon was setting, and the dying moonlight and the first pallor of dawn were mingled in a ghastly half-light. The bushes were inky black, the ground a sombre grey, the sky colourless and cheerless. And up the hill I thought I could see ghosts. There several times, as I scanned the slope, I saw white figures.

scanned - नज़र दौड़ाना, चारों तरफ़ घूमना, पर्यवेक्षण करना, स्कैन

Twice I fancied I saw a solitary white, ape-like creature running rather quickly up the hill, and once near the ruins I saw a leash of them carrying some dark body. They moved hastily. I did not see what became of them. It seemed that they vanished among the bushes. The dawn was still indistinct, you must understand. I was feeling that chill, uncertain, early-morning feeling you may have known.

leash - पट्टा, पेटी, कमरबंद

'As the eastern sky grew brighter, and the light of the day came on and its vivid colouring returned upon the world once more, I scanned the view keenly. But I saw no vestige of my white figures. They were mere creatures of the half light. "They must have been ghosts," I said; "I wonder whence they dated." For a queer notion of Grant Allen's came into my head, and amused me.

whence - कहाँ से

notion - इच्छा, धारणा, विचार

Grant - स्वीकार करना, देना, अनुदान, अधिकार देना, अनुमति देना

If each generation die and leave ghosts, he argued, the world at last will get overcrowded with them. On that theory they would have grown innumerable some Eight Hundred Thousand Years hence, and it was no great wonder to see four at once. But the jest was unsatisfying, and I was thinking of these figures all the morning, until Weena's rescue drove them out of my head.

generation - पीढ़ी, पुश्त, नस्ल

last will - अंतिम विश्वास

overcrowded - भीड़ लगाना

theory - सिद्धांत, नज़रिया, तथ्य

hence - अतः, इस कारण से

unsatisfying - असंतोषजनक

I associated them in some indefinite way with the white animal I had startled in my first passionate search for the Time Machine. But Weena was a pleasant substitute. Yet all the same, they were soon destined to take far deadlier possession of my mind.

indefinite - अनिश्चित, संदेहास्पद, अनिश्चित कालीन, अनिश्चित कालीन

'I think I have said how much hotter than our own was the weather of this Golden Age. I cannot account for it. It may be that the sun was hotter, or the earth nearer the sun. It is usual to assume that the sun will go on cooling steadily in the future.

assume - समझना, रूप धारण करना, मानना, बहाना करना, कार्यभार संभालना।

But people, unfamiliar with such speculations as those of the younger Darwin, forget that the planets must ultimately fall back one by one into the parent body. As these catastrophes occur, the sun will blaze with renewed energy; and it may be that some inner planet had suffered this fate. Whatever the reason, the fact remains that the sun was very much hotter than we know it.

'Well, one very hot morning-my fourth, I think-as I was seeking shelter from the heat and glare in a colossal ruin near the great house where I slept and fed, there happened this strange thing: Clambering among these heaps of masonry, I found a narrow gallery, whose end and side windows were blocked by fallen masses of stone.

By contrast with the brilliancy outside, it seemed at first impenetrably dark to me. I entered it groping, for the change from light to blackness made spots of colour swim before me. Suddenly I halted spellbound. A pair of eyes, luminous by reflection against the daylight without, was watching me out of the darkness.

'The old instinctive dread of wild beasts came upon me. I clenched my hands and steadfastly looked into the glaring eyeballs. I was afraid to turn. Then the thought of the absolute security in which humanity appeared to be living came to my mind. And then I remembered that strange terror of the dark. Overcoming my fear to some extent, I advanced a step and spoke.

I will admit that my voice was harsh and ill-controlled. I put out my hand and touched something soft. At once the eyes darted sideways, and something white ran past me. I turned with my heart in my mouth, and saw a queer little ape-like figure, its head held down in a peculiar manner, running across the sunlit space behind me.

darted - चुन्नट, (**), बर्छी, झपट्टा, भाला/बल्लम, शर, दौड़ कर जाना

pile - ढेर

ruined - नष्ट करना, नष्ट कर, बिगाड़ना, पतन, ध्वंसावशेष, बर्बाद करना

'My impression of it is, of course, imperfect; but I know it was a dull white, and had strange large greyish-red eyes; also that there was flaxen hair on its head and down its back. But, as I say, it went too fast for me to see distinctly. I cannot even say whether it ran on all-fours, or only with its forearms held very low. After an instant's pause I followed it into the second heap of ruins.

I could not find it at first; but, after a time in the profound obscurity, I came upon one of those round well-like openings of which I have told you, half closed by a fallen pillar. A sudden thought came to me. Could this Thing have vanished down the shaft?

pillar - स्तंभ, खंभा

shaft - अन्यायपूर्ण व्यवहार करना, बरछा, धोखा देना, पिच्छाक्ष, किरणपुंज

I lit a match, and, looking down, I saw a small, white, moving creature, with large bright eyes which regarded me steadfastly as it retreated. It made me shudder. It was so like a human spider! It was clambering down the wall, and now I saw for the first time a number of metal foot and hand rests forming a kind of ladder down the shaft.

Then the light burned my fingers and fell out of my hand, going out as it dropped, and when I had lit another the little monster had disappeared.

'I do not know how long I sat peering down that well. It was not for some time that I could succeed in persuading myself that the thing I had seen was human.

persuading - विश्वास दिलाना, मनाना, समझाना, के लिए राजी करना

But, gradually, the truth dawned on me: that Man had not remained one species, but had differentiated into two distinct animals: that my graceful children of the Upper-world were not the sole descendants of our generation, but that this bleached, obscene, nocturnal Thing, which had flashed before me, was also heir to all the ages.

'I thought of the flickering pillars and of my theory of an underground ventilation. I began to suspect their true import. And what, I wondered, was this Lemur doing in my scheme of a perfectly balanced organization? How was it related to the indolent serenity of the beautiful Upper-worlders? And what was hidden down there, at the foot of that shaft?

I sat upon the edge of the well telling myself that, at any rate, there was nothing to fear, and that there I must descend for the solution of my difficulties. And withal I was absolutely afraid to go! As I hesitated, two of the beautiful Upper-world people came running in their amorous sport across the daylight in the shadow. The male pursued the female, flinging flowers at her as he ran.

edge - कनारा

withal - फिर भी, तब भी, साथ ही

amorous - कामुक, कामी{रसिक}

pursued - पाने की कोशिश करना, लगे रहना, पीछा करना, आगे बढना/बढाना

'They seemed distressed to find me, my arm against the overturned pillar, peering down the well. Apparently it was considered bad form to remark these apertures; for when I pointed to this one, and tried to frame a question about it in their tongue, they were still more visibly distressed and turned away. But they were interested by my matches, and I struck some to amuse them.

apertures - छिद्र, छेद, छिद्र्

visibly - प्रत्यक्षतः, प्रत्यक्ष रूप से, स्पष्ट रूप से

I tried them again about the well, and again I failed. So presently I left them, meaning to go back to Weena, and see what I could get from her. But my mind was already in revolution; my guesses and impressions were slipping and sliding to a new adjustment.

revolution - क्रांति, इंक़िलाब, विप्लव, इनकलाब

sliding - स्लाइडिंग, (slid) स्लाइडिंग

I had now a clue to the import of these wells, to the ventilating towers, to the mystery of the ghosts; to say nothing of a hint at the meaning of the bronze gates and the fate of the Time Machine! And very vaguely there came a suggestion towards the solution of the economic problem that had puzzled me.

ventilating - हवा करना, प्रकाश में लाना

hint at - सूचाना

vaguely - अस्पष्टतः, संदिग्धतः, अस्पष्ट रूप से

economic - आर्थिक

'Here was the new view. Plainly, this second species of Man was subterranean. There were three circumstances in particular which made me think that its rare emergence above ground was the outcome of a long-continued underground habit. In the first place, there was the bleached look common in most animals that live largely in the dark-the white fish of the Kentucky caves, for instance.

emergence - आविर्भाव

largely - व्यापक रुप से, पुर्णतया, मुख्य रुप से, मुख्य रुप से

Kentucky - US state

caves - बैठ जाना, गउफा खोदना, गउफा, गुफा, गउफा खोदना

Then, those large eyes, with that capacity for reflecting light, are common features of nocturnal things-witness the owl and the cat. And last of all, that evident confusion in the sunshine, that hasty yet fumbling awkward flight towards dark shadow, and that peculiar carriage of the head while in the light-all reinforced the theory of an extreme sensitiveness of the retina.

capacity - सामर्थ्य, क्षमता

reflecting - विचार करना, दर्शाना, प्रतिबिंबित करना, परावर्तित करना

witness - गवाही, साक्ष्य

'Beneath my feet, then, the earth must be tunnelled enormously, and these tunnellings were the habitat of the new race. The presence of ventilating shafts and wells along the hill slopes-everywhere, in fact, except along the river valley-showed how universal were its ramifications.

What so natural, then, as to assume that it was in this artificial Underworld that such work as was necessary to the comfort of the daylight race was done? The notion was so plausible that I at once accepted it, and went on to assume the how of this splitting of the human species.

artificial - कृत्रिम, झूठा, बनावटी

underworld - अपराधी वर्ग, अधोलोक, अपराध लोक, अपराध लोक

splitting - फाड़ना, विदारक, (split)

I dare say you will anticipate the shape of my theory; though, for myself, I very soon felt that it fell far short of the truth.

anticipate - करना, सोच रखना, उम्मीद करना, पुर्वानुमान करना

'At first, proceeding from the problems of our own age, it seemed clear as daylight to me that the gradual widening of the present merely temporary and social difference between the Capitalist and the Labourer, was the key to the whole position. No doubt it will seem grotesque enough to you-and wildly incredible!-and yet even now there are existing circumstances to point that way.

clear as daylight - सूर्यप्रकाश की तरह स्पष्ट

gradual - क्रमिक, क्रमश्ः, क्रमश:

metropolitan - महानगर संबंधी, महानगरीय, महानगर वासी, महानगर संबंधी

subways - भूमिगत मार्ग, तलमार्ग, भूमिगत रेल, अन्तर्भूमार्ग

Evidently, I thought, this tendency had increased till Industry had gradually lost its birthright in the sky. I mean that it had gone deeper and deeper into larger and ever larger underground factories, spending a still-increasing amount of its time therein, till, in the end-!

birthright - जन्मसिद्ध अधिकार

Even now, does not an East-end worker live in such artificial conditions as practically to be cut off from the natural surface of the earth?

practically - लगभग, वास्तव में, व्यावहारिक रूप से, व्यावहारिक दृष्टि से

'Again, the exclusive tendency of richer people-due, no doubt, to the increasing refinement of their education, and the widening gulf between them and the rude violence of the poor-is already leading to the closing, in their interest, of considerable portions of the surface of the land. About London, for instance, perhaps half the prettier country is shut in against intrusion.

exclusive - निवारक, विशिष्ट, अखंडित, एकमात्र कथा, एकमात्र कथा, अपवर्जक

due - सीधे, उचित, उप्युक्त, शुल्क, उपयुक्त, निश्चित, के कारन, देय

portions - हिस्सा, भाग, खुराक, बाँट देना

intrusion - पैठ, अनधिकार प्रवेश, अनुचित हस्तक्षेप, बलात् प्रवेश, धृष्टागम

And this same widening gulf-which is due to the length and expense of the higher educational process and the increased facilities for and temptations towards refined habits on the part of the rich-will make that exchange between class and class, that promotion by intermarriage which at present retards the splitting of our species along lines of social stratification, less and less frequent.

educational - शैक्षणिक, शैक्षिक

frequent - अक्सर

So, in the end, above ground you must have the Haves, pursuing pleasure and comfort and beauty, and below ground the Have-nots, the Workers getting continually adapted to the conditions of their labour. Once they were there, they would no doubt have to pay rent, and not a little of it, for the ventilation of their caverns; and if they refused, they would starve or be suffocated for arrears.

arrears - बक़ाया, बकाया/शेष

Such of them as were so constituted as to be miserable and rebellious would die; and, in the end, the balance being permanent, the survivors would become as well adapted to the conditions of underground life, and as happy in their way, as the Upper-world people were to theirs. As it seemed to me, the refined beauty and the etiolated pallor followed naturally enough.

constituted - होना, बनाना, निर्माण करना, संगठित करना, निर्माण करना

miserable - दुःखी, उदास

rebellious - विद्रोही, अक्खड़, राज द्रोही

permanent - स्थायी, सदा के लिए, कृत्रिम लट, कृत्रिम लट

'The great triumph of Humanity I had dreamed of took a different shape in my mind. It had been no such triumph of moral education and general co-operation as I had imagined. Instead, I saw a real aristocracy, armed with a perfected science and working to a logical conclusion the industrial system of to-day.

moral - नैतिक

operation - कार्य, आपरेशन, काम, सिद्धांत, चालू, कार्य प्रणाली, संक्रिया

aristocracy - अभिजात वर्ग

industrial - उद्योग संबंधी, उद्योगी, औद्योगिक

Its triumph had not been simply a triumph over Nature, but a triumph over Nature and the fellow-man. This, I must warn you, was my theory at the time. I had no convenient cicerone in the pattern of the Utopian books. My explanation may be absolutely wrong. I still think it is the most plausible one.

fellow - व्यक्ति

cicerone - guide

Utopian - आदर्शवादी समाज सुधारक, आदर्श, यूटोपिया संबंधी

most plausible - सबसे विश्वसनीय

But even on this supposition the balanced civilization that was at last attained must have long since passed its zenith, and was now far fallen into decay. The too-perfect security of the Upper-worlders had led them to a slow movement of degeneration, to a general dwindling in size, strength, and intelligence. That I could see clearly enough already.

supposition - मानना, अनुमान, परिकल्पना

zenith - सिम्त

degeneration - विकार, क्षय होना

dwindling - कम हो जाना, कम हो जाना, क्षीण हो जाना

What had happened to the Under-grounders I did not yet suspect; but from what I had seen of the Morlocks-that, by the by, was the name by which these creatures were called-I could imagine that the modification of the human type was even far more profound than among the "Eloi," the beautiful race that I already knew.

modification - सुधार, उपांतरण

more profound - अत्यंत गहरा

'Then came troublesome doubts. Why had the Morlocks taken my Time Machine? For I felt sure it was they who had taken it. Why, too, if the Eloi were masters, could they not restore the machine to me? And why were they so terribly afraid of the dark? I proceeded, as I have said, to question Weena about this Under-world, but here again I was disappointed.

disappointed - निष्फल् कर देना, निराश करना, निष्फल करना, निराश करना

At first she would not understand my questions, and presently she refused to answer them. She shivered as though the topic was unendurable. And when I pressed her, perhaps a little harshly, she burst into tears. They were the only tears, except my own, I ever saw in that Golden Age.

unendurable - असहनीय

harshly - कठोरता से, निष्ठुरतासे, कठोरता से

burst - फूटना

Tears - करना, आँसू, खींच लेना, चीरा, फटना, अशान्तिपूर्ण होना

When I saw them I ceased abruptly to trouble about the Morlocks, and was only concerned in banishing these signs of the human inheritance from Weena's eyes. And very soon she was smiling and clapping her hands, while I solemnly burned a match.

concerned - अभिरुचि, दिलचस्पी, संबंध, कारोबार, चिंता, सहानुभूति, चीज

banishing - निर्वासित करना, निकाल देना, निकाल देना, निर्वासित करना

Chapter VI

'It may seem odd to you, but it was two days before I could follow up the new-found clue in what was manifestly the proper way. I felt a peculiar shrinking from those pallid bodies. They were just the half-bleached colour of the worms and things one sees preserved in spirit in a zoological museum. And they were filthily cold to the touch.

manifestly - साफ़ तौर पर, साफ़ तौर पर

Probably my shrinking was largely due to the sympathetic influence of the Eloi, whose disgust of the Morlocks I now began to appreciate.

influence - प्रभाव, असर

disgust - गुस्सा, घृणा करना, घृणा, जुगुप्सा, नफरतअ, चिढ़ पैदा करना

'The next night I did not sleep well. Probably my health was a little disordered. I was oppressed with perplexity and doubt. Once or twice I had a feeling of intense fear for which I could perceive no definite reason. I remember creeping noiselessly into the great hall where the little people were sleeping in the moonlight-that night Weena was among them-and feeling reassured by their presence.

oppressed - दमन करना, दमन करना, विषादग्रस्त करना, विषादग्रस्त करना

definite - स्पष्ट, निश्चित

noiselessly - बिना आवाज़ किये, बिना आवाज़ किये

It occurred to me even then, that in the course of a few days the moon must pass through its last quarter, and the nights grow dark, when the appearances of these unpleasant creatures from below, these whitened Lemurs, this new vermin that had replaced the old, might be more abundant. And on both these days I had the restless feeling of one who shirks an inevitable duty.

whitened - सफेद करना

Lemurs - लीमर, लेमूर{बन्दर जैसा जानवर}

vermin - बदमाश, कीड़े मकोड़े, नाशक जीव, नाशक जीव

shirks - भागना, टालना, से जी चुराना/से भाग जाना, जी चुराना

Duty - कृत्य, कर्तव्य

I felt assured that the Time Machine was only to be recovered by boldly penetrating these underground mysteries. Yet I could not face the mystery. If only I had had a companion it would have been different. But I was so horribly alone, and even to clamber down into the darkness of the well appalled me. I don't know if you will understand my feeling, but I never felt quite safe at my back.

boldly - निडरतापूर्वक

appalled - नाराज़ होना, विस्मित कर देना, स्तंभित कर देना

'It was this restlessness, this insecurity, perhaps, that drove me further and further afield in my exploring expeditions. Going to the south-westward towards the rising country that is now called Combe Wood, I observed far off, in the direction of nineteenth-century Banstead, a vast green structure, different in character from any I had hitherto seen.

It was larger than the largest of the palaces or ruins I knew, and the facade had an Oriental look: the face of it having the lustre, as well as the pale-green tint, a kind of bluish-green, of a certain type of Chinese porcelain. This difference in aspect suggested a difference in use, and I was minded to push on and explore.

facade - दिखावा

Oriental - पूर्वी, पूर्व वासी

lustre - चमक

tint - हलका रंग

bluish - नीला सा

porcelain - पॉर्सिलेन, चीनी का बरतन, चीनी

aspect - दृष्टिकोण, गुण, रूप, पहलू, रूख, अवस्था

But the day was growing late, and I had come upon the sight of the place after a long and tiring circuit; so I resolved to hold over the adventure for the following day, and I returned to the welcome and the caresses of little Weena.

tiring - थकाऊ, थका हुआ, (tire) थकाऊ

circuit - परिपथ

caresses - प्यार से स्पर्श करना, प्रेम स्पर्श, प्यार से स्पर्श करना

But next morning I perceived clearly enough that my curiosity regarding the Palace of Green Porcelain was a piece of self-deception, to enable me to shirk, by another day, an experience I dreaded. I resolved I would make the descent without further waste of time, and started out in the early morning towards a well near the ruins of granite and aluminium.

regarding - ध्यान, समझना, संबंध, सोचना, देखना, सम्मान, मानना, घूरना

deception - धोखा, छल

'Little Weena ran with me. She danced beside me to the well, but when she saw me lean over the mouth and look downward, she seemed strangely disconcerted. "Good-bye, little Weena," I said, kissing her; and then putting her down, I began to feel over the parapet for the climbing hooks. Rather hastily, I may as well confess, for I feared my courage might leak away!

leak - बूँद बूँद गिरना, रहस्योद्घाटन, रहस्योदघाटन, छिद्र, पेशाब करना

At first she watched me in amazement. Then she gave a most piteous cry, and running to me, she began to pull at me with her little hands. I think her opposition nerved me rather to proceed. I shook her off, perhaps a little roughly, and in another moment I was in the throat of the well. I saw her agonized face over the parapet, and smiled to reassure her.

amazement - अचंभा

piteous - दयनीय, दीन

opposition - विमुखता

Then I had to look down at the unstable hooks to which I clung.

unstable - लडखडाती, अस्थिर, विक्षिप्त, चंचल, अस्थायी, असंतुलित

clung - चिपक जाना, टिके रहना, लिपट जाना, बने रहना, चिपक जाना

'I had to clamber down a shaft of perhaps two hundred yards. The descent was effected by means of metallic bars projecting from the sides of the well, and these being adapted to the needs of a creature much smaller and lighter than myself, I was speedily cramped and fatigued by the descent. And not simply fatigued!

yards - बाड़ा, रंगभूमि, अहाता, प्रांगण, गज़, हाता, आंगन, यार्ड

cramped - ऐंठन या मरोड़ की पीड़ा देना, ऐंठन, रुकावट पैदा करना

One of the bars bent suddenly under my weight, and almost swung me off into the blackness beneath. For a moment I hung by one hand, and after that experience I did not dare to rest again. Though my arms and back were presently acutely painful, I went on clambering down the sheer descent with as quick a motion as possible.

acutely - बहुत ही, बहुत ही तेज़ीसे, तीक्ष्णता से, तीक्ष्णता से

Glancing upward, I saw the aperture, a small blue disk, in which a star was visible, while little Weena's head showed as a round black projection. The thudding sound of a machine below grew louder and more oppressive. Everything save that little disk above was profoundly dark, and when I looked up again Weena had disappeared.

'I was in an agony of discomfort. I had some thought of trying to go up the shaft again, and leave the Under-world alone. But even while I turned this over in my mind I continued to descend. At last, with intense relief, I saw dimly coming up, a foot to the right of me, a slender loophole in the wall.

discomfort - घबरा देना, अशांति, असुविधा, घबरा देना, कष्ट, विकलता

relief - राहत

Swinging myself in, I found it was the aperture of a narrow horizontal tunnel in which I could lie down and rest. It was not too soon. My arms ached, my back was cramped, and I was trembling with the prolonged terror of a fall. Besides this, the unbroken darkness had had a distressing effect upon my eyes. The air was full of the throb and hum of machinery pumping air down the shaft.

swinging - ज़िंदादिल, दोलन, झूलता हुआ, फड़कता हुआ, (swing)

'I do not know how long I lay. I was roused by a soft hand touching my face. Starting up in the darkness I snatched at my matches and, hastily striking one, I saw three stooping white creatures similar to the one I had seen above ground in the ruin, hastily retreating before the light.

retreating - गिरना, पीछे हटना, भागना, कम होना, चला जाना, आश्रयस्थल, वापसी

Living, as they did, in what appeared to me impenetrable darkness, their eyes were abnormally large and sensitive, just as are the pupils of the abysmal fishes, and they reflected the light in the same way. I have no doubt they could see me in that rayless obscurity, and they did not seem to have any fear of me apart from the light.

impenetrable - अभेद्य, दुर्बोध

apart - स्वतंट्र, दूर, अलग, अलग अलग, छोड़कर, दूर दूर, दूरी पर

But, so soon as I struck a match in order to see them, they fled incontinently, vanishing into dark gutters and tunnels, from which their eyes glared at me in the strangest fashion.

fled - भाग जाना, फरार होना, भाग जाना, फरार होना

vanishing - ओझल होता, लोप, (vanish)

'I tried to call to them, but the language they had was apparently different from that of the Over-world people; so that I was needs left to my own unaided efforts, and the thought of flight before exploration was even then in my mind. But I said to myself, "You are in for it now," and, feeling my way along the tunnel, I found the noise of machinery grow louder.

unaided - सहायता रहित, बिना सहायता के, सहायता रहित

Presently the walls fell away from me, and I came to a large open space, and striking another match, saw that I had entered a vast arched cavern, which stretched into utter darkness beyond the range of my light. The view I had of it was as much as one could see in the burning of a match.

cavern - कंदरा, बड़ी गुफा

stretched - फैलाना, फैल जाना, पंक्ति, विस्तार, फैला हुआ होना, फैलाव, तानना

'Necessarily my memory is vague. Great shapes like big machines rose out of the dimness, and cast grotesque black shadows, in which dim spectral Morlocks sheltered from the glare. The place, by the by, was very stuffy and oppressive, and the faint halitus of freshly shed blood was in the air. Some way down the central vista was a little table of white metal, laid with what seemed a meal.

shed blood - रक्त

vista - परिदृश्य, वीथी, तरुपंक्ति का दृश्य

The Morlocks at any rate were carnivorous! Even at the time, I remember wondering what large animal could have survived to furnish the red joint I saw. It was all very indistinct: the heavy smell, the big unmeaning shapes, the obscene figures lurking in the shadows, and only waiting for the darkness to come at me again!

carnivorous - माँसाहारी

survived - जीवित रहना, से बच जाना, से बच जाना

furnish - सुस्सजित करना, प्रस्तुत करना, देना{आवश्यक सामग्री}, सजाना

Then the match burned down, and stung my fingers, and fell, a wriggling red spot in the blackness.

wriggling - कुलबुलाता हुआ, छटपटाता हुआ, (wriggle)

'I have thought since how particularly ill-equipped I was for such an experience. When I had started with the Time Machine, I had started with the absurd assumption that the men of the Future would certainly be infinitely ahead of ourselves in all their appliances.

absurd - निरर्थक, बेतुका, असंगत, हास्यास्पद, विसंगति, बेढंगा

assumption - मान्यता, पुर्वानुमान, कल्पना, परिकल्पना, ग्रहण

infinitely - बहुत ज़्यादा, बहुत हद तक, बहुत हद तक

I had come without arms, without medicine, without anything to smoke-at times I missed tobacco frightfully-even without enough matches. If only I had thought of a Kodak! I could have flashed that glimpse of the Underworld in a second, and examined it at leisure.

frightfully - बहुत अधिक, अत्यन्त

examined - समझना, परखना, पूछना, छानबीन करना, परीक्षण करना, छानबीन करना

But, as it was, I stood there with only the weapons and the powers that Nature had endowed me with-hands, feet, and teeth; these, and four safety-matches that still remained to me.

weapons - हथियार, हस्तास्त्र, अस्त्र, शस्त्र

endowed - दान देना, सहायतार्थ देना

safety - सुरक्षा, सलामती, सेफ़्टी

'I was afraid to push my way in among all this machinery in the dark, and it was only with my last glimpse of light I discovered that my store of matches had run low. It had never occurred to me until that moment that there was any need to economize them, and I had wasted almost half the box in astonishing the Upper-worlders, to whom fire was a novelty.

economize - किफ़ायत करना, किफ़ायत करना, कमखर्चे में करना

wasted - व्यर्थ, निरर्थक, क्षीणकाय, नष्ट, कृश, बेकार

astonishing - ठगा सा, आश्चर्य होना, चकित करना, चकित कर देना

Now, as I say, I had four left, and while I stood in the dark, a hand touched mine, lank fingers came feeling over my face, and I was sensible of a peculiar unpleasant odour. I fancied I heard the breathing of a crowd of those dreadful little beings about me. I felt the box of matches in my hand being gently disengaged, and other hands behind me plucking at my clothing.

disengaged - अलग करना, अलग होना, अलग होना

plucking - बचाना, साहस, साहसअ, ओचना, नोचना, खींचना, तोडना

The sense of these unseen creatures examining me was indescribably unpleasant. The sudden realization of my ignorance of their ways of thinking and doing came home to me very vividly in the darkness. I shouted at them as loudly as I could. They started away, and then I could feel them approaching me again. They clutched at me more boldly, whispering odd sounds to each other.

realization - बोध, प्राप्ति, वास्तविकताबोधक, विक्रय, प्रत्यक्षीकरण

ignorance - अज्ञान, अविद्या, बेखबरी, नासमझी

clutched - क्लच, अण्डो का समुच्चय, उपक कर पकड़ना

whispering - कानाफूसी, सरसराहट, फुसफुसाहट, सरगोशी करता

I shivered violently, and shouted again-rather discordantly. This time they were not so seriously alarmed, and they made a queer laughing noise as they came back at me. I will confess I was horribly frightened. I determined to strike another match and escape under the protection of its glare.

discordantly - बेसुरे ढंग से, बेसुरे ढंग से

alarmed - भयभीत करना, घंटी, खतरे का संकेत, संकट घंटी

strike - हड़ताल

escape - राहत, बचाव, भाग जाना, बाहर निकलना, बचने का उपाय, पलायन, भागना

I did so, and eking out the flicker with a scrap of paper from my pocket, I made good my retreat to the narrow tunnel. But I had scarce entered this when my light was blown out and in the blackness I could hear the Morlocks rustling like wind among leaves, and pattering like the rain, as they hurried after me.

eking - चलाना, मुश्किल से निर्वाह करना, खींच लेना/बढ़ाना

pattering - बड़बड़ाहट, पटपटाहट, पटपटाना

hurried - जल्दी करना, हुत जल्दबाजी, जल्दी, जल्दी निकलना, जल्दी करना

'In a moment I was clutched by several hands, and there was no mistaking that they were trying to haul me back. I struck another light, and waved it in their dazzled faces. You can scarce imagine how nauseatingly inhuman they looked-those pale, chinless faces and great, lidless, pinkish-grey eyes!-as they stared in their blindness and bewilderment.

haul - ढोना, जाल में फँसी हुई मछलियों की राशि, प्राप्त वस्तु

nauseatingly - घृणित रूप से, घृणित रूप से

chinless - बिना चीनी

lidless - लिडलेस

bewilderment - घबराहट

But I did not stay to look, I promise you: I retreated again, and when my second match had ended, I struck my third. It had almost burned through when I reached the opening into the shaft. I lay down on the edge, for the throb of the great pump below made me giddy.

pump - पम्प, दमकल

giddy - अस्थिर, चंचल, चक्कर लाने वाला, चक्कर से आक्रांत, मतिशून्य

Then I felt sideways for the projecting hooks, and, as I did so, my feet were grasped from behind, and I was violently tugged backward. I lit my last match … and it incontinently went out.

grasped - समझना, पाने का प्रयत्न करना, समझ, पकड़, कसकर पकड़ना

tugged - सितारा मछली, कर्षण नौका, झटके से खींचना, झटका देना

But I had my hand on the climbing bars now, and, kicking violently, I disengaged myself from the clutches of the Morlocks and was speedily clambering up the shaft, while they stayed peering and blinking up at me: all but one little wretch who followed me for some way, and well-nigh secured my boot as a trophy.

kicking - परेशान करना, चलाना, निकालना, लात, लतियाना, घुमना, धिक्कारना

trophy - विजयोपहार, विजयस्मारक, विजय चिन्ह, ट्रफ़ी

'That climb seemed interminable to me. With the last twenty or thirty feet of it a deadly nausea came upon me. I had the greatest difficulty in keeping my hold. The last few yards was a frightful struggle against this faintness. Several times my head swam, and I felt all the sensations of falling.

deadly - अत्यधिक, घातक, अत्यन्त, बहुत ही, विषैला, बहुत ही, मौत सा

nausea - उबकाई, मतली, मिचली, ओकाई

frightful - बहुत खराब, भयानक, बहुत खराब, खराब{अनौपचारिक}

faintness - property of being faint

At last, however, I got over the well-mouth somehow, and staggered out of the ruin into the blinding sunlight. I fell upon my face. Even the soil smelt sweet and clean. Then I remember Weena kissing my hands and ears, and the voices of others among the Eloi. Then, for a time, I was insensible.

got over - कोई पार कर लिया

blinding - very bright, to an extreme degree, act of causing blindness

soil - धरती, मिट्टी, खाद, मल

insensible - अनभिज्ञ, संवेदनशून्य, असंवेदनशील, संज्ञाहीन

Chapter VII

'Now, indeed, I seemed in a worse case than before. Hitherto, except during my night's anguish at the loss of the Time Machine, I had felt a sustaining hope of ultimate escape, but that hope was staggered by these new discoveries.

anguish - वेदना

sustaining - संरक्षण, (sustain) संरक्षण

ultimate - परम, सर्वश्रेष्ठ, अंतिम, अत्यंत, आख़िरी, चरम

Hitherto I had merely thought myself impeded by the childish simplicity of the little people, and by some unknown forces which I had only to understand to overcome; but there was an altogether new element in the sickening quality of the Morlocks-a something inhuman and malign. Instinctively I loathed them.

impeded - रोकना, अटकाना

simplicity - सहजता, सरलता, भोलापन, सादगी

forces - बल, गुण, दल, विवश करना, शक्ति, शक्ति प्रयोग करना, लागू होना

Before, I had felt as a man might feel who had fallen into a pit: my concern was with the pit and how to get out of it. Now I felt like a beast in a trap, whose enemy would come upon him soon.

pit - गहरा गढ्ढा

beast - वहश, जानवर, हैवान, जंतु

enemy - दुश्मन, शत्रु, वैरी, द्वेषी

'The enemy I dreaded may surprise you. It was the darkness of the new moon. Weena had put this into my head by some at first incomprehensible remarks about the Dark Nights. It was not now such a very difficult problem to guess what the coming Dark Nights might mean. The moon was on the wane: each night there was a longer interval of darkness.

new moon - न्यू मून

incomprehensible - दुरूह, अबोधगम्य, अबोध्य

remarks - करना, ध्यान, प्रतिक्रिया, ध्यान देना, टिप्पणी करना

And I now understood to some slight degree at least the reason of the fear of the little Upper-world people for the dark. I wondered vaguely what foul villainy it might be that the Morlocks did under the new moon. I felt pretty sure now that my second hypothesis was all wrong.

villainy - बदमाशी, खलनायकत्व

hypothesis - अनुमान, परिकल्पना, अवधारणा

The Upper-world people might once have been the favoured aristocracy, and the Morlocks their mechanical servants: but that had long since passed away. The two species that had resulted from the evolution of man were sliding down towards, or had already arrived at, an altogether new relationship. The Eloi, like the Carolingian kings, had decayed to a mere beautiful futility.

favoured - साथ देना, पक्ष लेना, कृपा, कृपादृष्टि रखना, कृपा दृष्टि रखना

mechanical - यंत्रवत्, यांत्रिक

evolution - विकास

Carolingian - of or pertaining to the Frankish dynasty

decayed - खराब करना, ख़राब होना, विकार, ख़राब होना, पतन, विघटन होना

futility - निरर्थकता, असारता

They still possessed the earth on sufferance: since the Morlocks, subterranean for innumerable generations, had come at last to find the daylit surface intolerable. And the Morlocks made their garments, I inferred, and maintained them in their habitual needs, perhaps through the survival of an old habit of service.

possessed - आक्रान्त करना, रखना, आविष्ट करना, मालिक होना, पास होना

sufferance - सहिष्णुता, बर्दाश्त, क्षमा

They did it as a standing horse paws with his foot, or as a man enjoys killing animals in sport: because ancient and departed necessities had impressed it on the organism. But, clearly, the old order was already in part reversed. The Nemesis of the delicate ones was creeping on apace. Ages ago, thousands of generations ago, man had thrust his brother man out of the ease and the sunshine.

paws - भद्देपन से हाथ लगाना, पंजा, पंजा मारना, भद्देपन से हाथ लगाना

departed - से हटना, प्रस्ठान करना, छूटना, प्रस्ठान करना, रवा

thrust - आक्रमण, बल, ठेलना, मुख्य विषय, कटाक्ष, हथियार की नोक से वार

And now that brother was coming back changed! Already the Eloi had begun to learn one old lesson anew. They were becoming reacquainted with Fear. And suddenly there came into my head the memory of the meat I had seen in the Under-world. It seemed odd how it floated into my mind: not stirred up as it were by the current of my meditations, but coming in almost like a question from outside.

anew - नये सिरे से, नये प्रकार से

floated - धारा के साथ बहना, प्रवहमान रहना, प्रचलित करना, कार्यरत्त करना

stirred up - उत्तेजित

meditations - ध्यान, विचार, चिंतन, तपस्या, ईश्वर का स्मरण

I tried to recall the form of it. I had a vague sense of something familiar, but I could not tell what it was at the time.

recall - स्मरण, वापस लेना, वापस बुलाना, याद करना, याद आना, रद्द करना

familiar - घनिष्ठ, साधारण, शिष्ठाचार के विरुद्ध, अन्तरंग, प्रचलित

'Still, however helpless the little people in the presence of their mysterious Fear, I was differently constituted. I came out of this age of ours, this ripe prime of the human race, when Fear does not paralyse and mystery has lost its terrors. I at least would defend myself. Without further delay I determined to make myself arms and a fastness where I might sleep.

ripe - पका हुआ

prime - मुख्य, प्रधान

paralyse - अशक्त कर देना, गतिहीन कर देना

terrors - , भय, उपद्रवी, दहशत, उन्माद, खौफ, आतंक

defend - रक्षा करना

delay - देरी करना

fastness - किला

With that refuge as a base, I could face this strange world with some of that confidence I had lost in realizing to what creatures night by night I lay exposed. I felt I could never sleep again until my bed was secure from them. I shuddered with horror to think how they must already have examined me.

refuge - शरण, पनाह

base - आधार

by night - रात को

exposed - दिखाना, विवरण, प्रकट करना, खोलना, डालना, प्रदर्शित करना

shuddered - हिलना, रोंगटे खड़े कर देना, कँपकँपी, रोंगटे खड़े कर देना

'I wandered during the afternoon along the valley of the Thames, but found nothing that commended itself to my mind as inaccessible. All the buildings and trees seemed easily practicable to such dexterous climbers as the Morlocks, to judge by their wells, must be.

wandered - घुमावदार मार्ग से हो कर आगे बढ़ना, घूमना, भटकना, टहल, चला जाना

judge - निर्णय लेना

Then the tall pinnacles of the Palace of Green Porcelain and the polished gleam of its walls came back to my memory; and in the evening, taking Weena like a child upon my shoulder, I went up the hills towards the south-west. The distance, I had reckoned, was seven or eight miles, but it must have been nearer eighteen.

pinnacles - शिखर, चोटी, सिखर, कलश

reckoned - आशा करना, समझना, निर्भर होना, गिनना, अनुमान लगाना, माना जाना

I had first seen the place on a moist afternoon when distances are deceptively diminished. In addition, the heel of one of my shoes was loose, and a nail was working through the sole-they were comfortable old shoes I wore about indoors-so that I was lame. And it was already long past sunset when I came in sight of the palace, silhouetted black against the pale yellow of the sky.

moist - नम

deceptively - भ्रामक रूप से, कपट से, भ्रामक रूप से

heel - एड़ी

'Weena had been hugely delighted when I began to carry her, but after a while she desired me to let her down, and ran along by the side of me, occasionally darting off on either hand to pick flowers to stick in my pockets. My pockets had always puzzled Weena, but at the last she had concluded that they were an eccentric kind of vase for floral decoration.

reminds - याद दिलाना, चेताना, याद दिलाना, चिताना, स्मरण कराना

The Time Traveller paused, put his hand into his pocket, and silently placed two withered flowers, not unlike very large white mallows, upon the little table. Then he resumed his narrative.

paused - विराम, रूकना, ठहराव, रोक, रुकना, अवकाश, ठहरना, अटकना, अवसान, यति

'As the hush of evening crept over the world and we proceeded over the hill crest towards Wimbledon, Weena grew tired and wanted to return to the house of grey stone. But I pointed out the distant pinnacles of the Palace of Green Porcelain to her, and contrived to make her understand that we were seeking a refuge there from her Fear.

Hush - शान्ति, चुप करना, चुप करना, खामोशी, चुप हो जाना

contrived - बनाना, कोशिश करना, उपाय निकालना, उपाय निकालना, युक्ति निकालना

You know that great pause that comes upon things before the dusk? Even the breeze stops in the trees. To me there is always an air of expectation about that evening stillness. The sky was clear, remote, and empty save for a few horizontal bars far down in the sunset. Well, that night the expectation took the colour of my fears. In that darkling calm my senses seemed preternaturally sharpened.

dusk - गोधूलि वेला, संध्या, संध्याकाल/गोधूली

breeze - मन्द समीर

expectation - उम्मीद, चाह, कफोत्सारक

stillness - पवनरहितता

darkling - डार्कलिंग, (darkle) डार्कलिंग

sharpened - तेज़ हो जाना, तेज़ करना

I fancied I could even feel the hollowness of the ground beneath my feet: could, indeed, almost see through it the Morlocks on their ant-hill going hither and thither and waiting for the dark. In my excitement I fancied that they would receive my invasion of their burrows as a declaration of war. And why had they taken my Time Machine?

hollowness - ढोंग

ant - चींटी, tचिऊँटी

hither - इस तरफ, यहाँ

invasion - आक्रमण, हमला

burrows - खोदना, बिल, बिल खोदना, माँद, बिल खोदना

declaration - वचन, घोषणा, घोषण पत्र, ब्यौरा

'So we went on in the quiet, and the twilight deepened into night. The clear blue of the distance faded, and one star after another came out. The ground grew dim and the trees black. Weena's fears and her fatigue grew upon her. I took her in my arms and talked to her and caressed her.

deepened - गहराना, गहरा हो जाना, गहरा होना, और गहरा हो जाना, और गहरा करना

Then, as the darkness grew deeper, she put her arms round my neck, and, closing her eyes, tightly pressed her face against my shoulder. So we went down a long slope into a valley, and there in the dimness I almost walked into a little river. This I waded, and went up the opposite side of the valley, past a number of sleeping houses, and by a statue-a Faun, or some such figure, minus the head.

tightly - ठसाठस, कस कर, कस कर

waded - पानी में कठिनाई से पार जाना, पैदल पार करना

statue - प्रतिमा, मुर्ती, मूरत

Faun - ग्राम देवता

minus - के बिना, कमी, घटाव, ऋण, न्यूनतम, घटा

Here too were acacias. So far I had seen nothing of the Morlocks, but it was yet early in the night, and the darker hours before the old moon rose were still to come.

acacias - बबूल, अकेशिया, कीकर, पीले एवं सफेद फूल वाला पेड़

'From the brow of the next hill I saw a thick wood spreading wide and black before me. I hesitated at this. I could see no end to it, either to the right or the left. Feeling tired-my feet, in particular, were very sore-I carefully lowered Weena from my shoulder as I halted, and sat down upon the turf. I could no longer see the Palace of Green Porcelain, and I was in doubt of my direction.

brow - शिखर, मस्तक, भौंह

spreading - फैला हुआ, फैला हुआ, परिक्षेप, (spread) फैला हुआ

sore - दुखता, दर्द भरा

lowered - छोटा, कम करना, गिरना, घटाना, निम्न, लघु, उतारना, झुकना, गिर्ना

I looked into the thickness of the wood and thought of what it might hide. Under that dense tangle of branches one would be out of sight of the stars. Even were there no other lurking danger-a danger I did not care to let my imagination loose upon-there would still be all the roots to stumble over and the tree-boles to strike against.

dense - घना

branches - ज्ञान विषय, बेलबूटे कढना, बेलबूटे काढना, शाखा, विभाग

roots - धातु, खोदना, मूल, उत्साहित करना, पक्का होना, पेड़ जमा देना

stumble - गिरना, ठोकर, भूल करना, ठोकर खाना, लड़खड़ाते हुए चलना

excitements - बेक़रारी, उत्तेजना, उतावलापन, कौतूहल, हलचल/आवेश, उछाला

pass the night - रात को गुजरना

'Weena, I was glad to find, was fast asleep. I carefully wrapped her in my jacket, and sat down beside her to wait for the moonrise. The hill-side was quiet and deserted, but from the black of the wood there came now and then a stir of living things. Above me shone the stars, for the night was very clear. I felt a certain sense of friendly comfort in their twinkling.

Glad - प्रसन्न

wrapped - समाप्त करना, गाउन, लपेटना, आवृत करना, ढाँक लेना, कवर, पूरा करना

moonrise - चन्द्रोदय

All the old constellations had gone from the sky, however: that slow movement which is imperceptible in a hundred human lifetimes, had long since rearranged them in unfamiliar groupings. But the Milky Way, it seemed to me, was still the same tattered streamer of star-dust as of yore.

constellations - ज्योति पुंज, नक्षत्र/तारों का समूह, ज्योति पुंज, राश्

imperceptible - अलक्ष्य, अतीन्द्रिय, अतिसूक्ष्म

Southward (as I judged it) was a very bright red star that was new to me; it was even more splendid than our own green Sirius. And amid all these scintillating points of light one bright planet shone kindly and steadily like the face of an old friend.

southward - दक्षिण की ओर, दक्षिण दिशा, दक्षिणी

more splendid - अधिक शानदार

Sirius -

scintillating - चमकना

'Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. I thought of the great precessional cycle that the pole of the earth describes.

dwarfed - नाटा, बौना, बौना कर देना, बौना कर देना

gravities - गुरुत्व, गंभीरता, गुरुत्वाकर्षण

terrestrial - terrerist

Only forty times had that silent revolution occurred during all the years that I had traversed. And during these few revolutions all the activity, all the traditions, the complex organizations, the nations, languages, literatures, aspirations, even the mere memory of Man as I knew him, had been swept out of existence.

traversed - तय करना, पार करना, फैला होना, आड़ा शहतीर, स्की पर तिरछा जाना

revolutions - नक्षत्र का परिभ्रमण, आमूल परिवर्तन, पूरा चक्कर/परिभ्रमण

Instead were these frail creatures who had forgotten their high ancestry, and the white Things of which I went in terror. Then I thought of the Great Fear that was between the two species, and for the first time, with a sudden shiver, came the clear knowledge of what the meat I had seen might be. Yet it was too horrible!

ancestry - वंश, वंश परंपरा

shiver - कांपना, सिहरना

I looked at little Weena sleeping beside me, her face white and starlike under the stars, and forthwith dismissed the thought.

starlike - तारामंद

dismissed - अस्वीकार करना, निकाल देना, बरखास्त करना, आउट करना, इनकार करना

'Through that long night I held my mind off the Morlocks as well as I could, and whiled away the time by trying to fancy I could find signs of the old constellations in the new confusion. The sky kept very clear, except for a hazy cloud or so. No doubt I dozed at times.

dozed - झपकी, झपकी लेना, ऊँघना/झपकी लेना, झपकी लेना, ऊँघ/झपकी/नींद

Then, as my vigil wore on, came a faintness in the eastward sky, like the reflection of some colourless fire, and the old moon rose, thin and peaked and white. And close behind, and overtaking it, and overflowing it, the dawn came, pale at first, and then growing pink and warm. No Morlocks had approached us. Indeed, I had seen none upon the hill that night.

approached - पद्धति, सन्निकर्ष, समीप आना, रास्ता, पास आना, सुलझाना, प्रस्ताव

And in the confidence of renewed day it almost seemed to me that my fear had been unreasonable. I stood up and found my foot with the loose heel swollen at the ankle and painful under the heel; so I sat down again, took off my shoes, and flung them away.

unreasonable - अविवेकपूर्ण, असंगत, अनुचित, अविवेकी, हद से ज़्यादा, वाहियात

swollen - सुन्दर, बढ़ाना, मोड़ना, उठाना, वृद्धि, महातरंग, चढाव, फूलना

'I awakened Weena, and we went down into the wood, now green and pleasant instead of black and forbidding. We found some fruit wherewith to break our fast. We soon met others of the dainty ones, laughing and dancing in the sunlight as though there was no such thing in nature as the night. And then I thought once more of the meat that I had seen.

forbidding - डरावना, अप्रीतिकर, (forbid), रोकना, मना करना

wherewith - किसे या जिसे

dainty - मृदु, स्वादिष्ट वस्तु/प्रसाद, स्वादिष्ट भोजन, ललित

I felt assured now of what it was, and from the bottom of my heart I pitied this last feeble rill from the great flood of humanity. Clearly, at some time in the Long-Ago of human decay the Morlocks'food had run short. Possibly they had lived on rats and such-like vermin. Even now man is far less discriminating and exclusive in his food than he was-far less than any monkey.

pitied - दया, खैद का विषय, स्नेह, लज्जा, तर्स, हमदर्दी, तर्स आना

feeble - अशक्त, दुर्बल, मामूली, क्षीण, कमज़ोर, शक्तिहीन, कमजोर

His prejudice against human flesh is no deep-seated instinct. And so these inhuman sons of men--! I tried to look at the thing in a scientific spirit. After all, they were less human and more remote than our cannibal ancestors of three or four thousand years ago. And the intelligence that would have made this state of things a torment had gone. Why should I trouble myself?

prejudice - पूर्वाग्रह

instinct - फ़ितरत, वृत्ति, सलीक़ा

cannibal - आदमखोर, मानवभक्षी, नरभक्षी

torment - यातना, पीड़ा, कष्ट

These Eloi were mere fatted cattle, which the ant-like Morlocks preserved and preyed upon-probably saw to the breeding of. And there was Weena dancing at my side!

preyed - शिकार, शिकार करना, अनुचित लाभ उठाना, शिकार करन

'Then I tried to preserve myself from the horror that was coming upon me, by regarding it as a rigorous punishment of human selfishness. Man had been content to live in ease and delight upon the labours of his fellow-man, had taken Necessity as his watchword and excuse, and in the fullness of time Necessity had come home to him.

watchword - नारा, संकेत शब्द

Excuse - बहाना

fullness - प्रचुरता, पूर्णता, विपुलता

I even tried a Carlyle-like scorn of this wretched aristocracy in decay. But this attitude of mind was impossible. However great their intellectual degradation, the Eloi had kept too much of the human form not to claim my sympathy, and to make me perforce a sharer in their degradation and their Fear.

scorn - तिरस्कार, तिरस्कार करना, घृणा का पाट्र, इन्कार करना

wretched - दयनीय, दरिद्र, अत्यंत दुखी, घृणित, घिनौना, तकलीफ़देह, निंदनीय

perforce - by force, necessarily

sharer - साझाकर्ता

'I had at that time very vague ideas as to the course I should pursue. My first was to secure some safe place of refuge, and to make myself such arms of metal or stone as I could contrive. That necessity was immediate. In the next place, I hoped to procure some means of fire, so that I should have the weapon of a torch at hand, for nothing, I knew, would be more efficient against these Morlocks.

pursue - पाने की कोशिश करना, लगे रहना, पीछा करना, आगे बढना/बढाना

contrive - बनाना, कोशिश करना, उपाय निकालना, उपाय निकालना, युक्ति निकालना

procure - प्राप्त करना, दलाली करना, जुटाना, उपलब्ध करना

weapon - हथियार, शस्त्र, आयुध

torch - मशाल

Then I wanted to arrange some contrivance to break open the doors of bronze under the White Sphinx. I had in mind a battering ram. I had a persuasion that if I could enter those doors and carry a blaze of light before me I should discover the Time Machine and escape. I could not imagine the Morlocks were strong enough to move it far away. Weena I had resolved to bring with me to our own time.

contrivance - मशीन, यन्त्र, युक्ति

break open - तोड़ खोलो

battering - पीटना, मारना/कूटना, बल्लेबाज़, अंडा फेटना

persuasion - धारणा, अनुनय, धर्म

And turning such schemes over in my mind I pursued our way towards the building which my fancy had chosen as our dwelling.

schemes - पद्धति, योजना बनाना, योजना, षड़यंत्र रचना, मंसूबा

dwelling - आवास, निवास स्थान, निवासस्थान, (dwell)

Chapter VIII

'I found the Palace of Green Porcelain, when we approached it about noon, deserted and falling into ruin. Only ragged vestiges of glass remained in its windows, and great sheets of the green facing had fallen away from the corroded metallic framework.

vestiges - अवशेष, मार्ग, पदांक, रास्ता, निशान, पगडण्डी, पगडंडी, लेश

It lay very high upon a turfy down, and looking north-eastward before I entered it, I was surprised to see a large estuary, or even creek, where I judged Wandsworth and Battersea must once have been. I thought then-though I never followed up the thought-of what might have happened, or might be happening, to the living things in the sea.

turfy - टर्फी

estuary - नदमुख, नदी का चौड़ा मुहाना

Creek - सँकरी खाड़ी/निवेशिका

'The material of the Palace proved on examination to be indeed porcelain, and along the face of it I saw an inscription in some unknown character. I thought, rather foolishly, that Weena might help me to interpret this, but I only learned that the bare idea of writing had never entered her head. She always seemed to me, I fancy, more human than she was, perhaps because her affection was so human.

proved - प्रमाणित करना, परखना, परीक्षण करना, सिद्ध होना, सिद्ध करना

foolishly - मूर्खता से

Interpret - अदा करना, अर्थ लगाना, वर्णन करना, व्याख्या करना, अनुवाद करना

more human - अधिक मानवीय

'Within the big valves of the door-which were open and broken-we found, instead of the customary hall, a long gallery lit by many side windows. At the first glance I was reminded of a museum. The tiled floor was thick with dust, and a remarkable array of miscellaneous objects was shrouded in the same grey covering.

valves - हृदय में रक्त वाहक वाल्व, छिद्र, कपाटिका, कपाट

customary - विशिष्ट, हमेशा का, प्रचलित, परिचित, रूढगत, आचरिक

miscellaneous - विविध, अनेक प्रकार के

shrouded - जहाज के मस्तूल की रस्सी, छिपाना, परदा, पैराशूट की रस्सी

Then I perceived, standing strange and gaunt in the centre of the hall, what was clearly the lower part of a huge skeleton. I recognized by the oblique feet that it was some extinct creature after the fashion of the Megatherium.

gaunt - भूखा रहकर दुबला होना, सूखा हुआ, बदसूरत, सूखा हुआ, मरियल

lower part - निचला भाग

oblique - तिरछा, आड़ी रेखा, असम, तिर्यक, अप्रत्यक्ष, आड़ी रेखा

extinct - सुप्त, दुर्लभ, विलुप्त, लुप्त

Megatherium - मेगाथेरियम

The skull and the upper bones lay beside it in the thick dust, and in one place, where rain-water had dropped through a leak in the roof, the thing itself had been worn away. Further in the gallery was the huge skeleton barrel of a Brontosaurus. My museum hypothesis was confirmed.

beside it - उसके दरवाजे के पास

barrel - पीपा

Brontosaurus - ब्रौंटोसरस

confirmed - निश्चित करना, पक्का करना, पक्का ईसाई बनाना, पुष्टि करना

Going towards the side I found what appeared to be sloping shelves, and clearing away the thick dust, I found the old familiar glass cases of our own time. But they must have been air-tight to judge from the fair preservation of some of their contents.

sloping - बहना, छलकना, गंदला पानी, कीचड़ में से जाना, सुअर का खाना

shelves - खाना, पट्टी, सेल्फ, ताक, चट्टान, रेती/सैकत, शेल्फ़

'Clearly we stood among the ruins of some latter-day South Kensington!

Here, apparently, was the Palaeontological Section, and a very splendid array of fossils it must have been, though the inevitable process of decay that had been staved off for a time, and had, through the extinction of bacteria and fungi, lost ninety-nine hundredths of its force, was nevertheless, with extreme sureness if with extreme slowness at work again upon all its treasures.

fossils - जीवाश्म, जीवावशेष, रूढ़िवादि व्यक्ति

slowness - मंद गति

treasures - बहुमूल्य, संजोए रखना, खजाना, संजोये रखना, बहुमूल्य समझना

Here and there I found traces of the little people in the shape of rare fossils broken to pieces or threaded in strings upon reeds. And the cases had in some instances been bodily removed-by the Morlocks as I judged. The place was very silent. The thick dust deadened our footsteps.

traces - सुराग, संकेत, अवशेष, कुछ, निशान, जोता, अनुरेखण करना

Weena, who had been rolling a sea urchin down the sloping glass of a case, presently came, as I stared about me, and very quietly took my hand and stood beside me.

rolling - आवर्ती, ढलावदार, लहरदार, पहियों पर लुढ़काआ, (roll)

sea urchin - समुद्री केके

sloping - झुकाना, समतल, झुकना, स्लोप, ढलान, ढालू होना, कंधे शस्ट्र, ढ़ाल

'And at first I was so much surprised by this ancient monument of an intellectual age, that I gave no thought to the possibilities it presented. Even my preoccupation about the Time Machine receded a little from my mind.

monument - स्मारक

preoccupation - चिंता, अन्यचित्तता, अन्यमनस्कता, तन्मयता, चिन्ता, पूर्वाधिकार

receded - घटना, पीछे हटना, कम होना, धुँधला पड़ना

'To judge from the size of the place, this Palace of Green Porcelain had a great deal more in it than a Gallery of Palaeontology; possibly historical galleries; it might be, even a library! To me, at least in my present circumstances, these would be vastly more interesting than this spectacle of oldtime geology in decay. Exploring, I found another short gallery running transversely to the first.

Palaeontology - जीवाश्म विज्ञान

historical - ऐतिहासिक, इतिहास सम्बन्धी, इतिहास वादी, इतिहास विषयक

vastly - बहुत अधिक, बड़े रूप से

spectacle - प्रदर्शन, तमाशा, दृश्य, चश्मा, प्रदर्शन/तमाशा, नज़ारा

geology - भूविज्ञान, भौमिकी

This appeared to be devoted to minerals, and the sight of a block of sulphur set my mind running on gunpowder. But I could find no saltpeter; indeed, no nitrates of any kind. Doubtless they had deliquesced ages ago. Yet the sulphur hung in my mind, and set up a train of thinking.

devoted - समर्पित होना, समर्पित करना, समर्पित होना, वफादार

minerals - धातु, प्राकृतिक, पदार्थ, खनिज, खनिजजल, खनिज पदार्थ, दातु

gunpowder - बारूद, बारुद

saltpeter - साल्ट पीटर

nitrates - नाइट्रेट

doubtless - असंदिग्ध, नीस्संदेह, निसन्देह, असंदिग्धता

As for the rest of the contents of that gallery, though on the whole they were the best preserved of all I saw, I had little interest. I am no specialist in mineralogy, and I went on down a very ruinous aisle running parallel to the first hall I had entered. Apparently this section had been devoted to natural history, but everything had long since passed out of recognition.

mineralogy - खनिज विज्ञान, खनिज विज्ञान, खनिजविज्ञान

aisle - गली, गलियारा, पार्श्व भाग, गलियारा/रास्ता

parallel - समानान्तर

recognition - मान्यता, पहचान, स्वीकार, प्रत्यभिज्ञा, परिज्ञान, प्रतिपत्ति

A few shrivelled and blackened vestiges of what had once been stuffed animals, desiccated mummies in jars that had once held spirit, a brown dust of departed plants: that was all! I was sorry for that, because I should have been glad to trace the patent readjustments by which the conquest of animated nature had been attained.

shrivelled - कुम्हलाना, मुरझाना

blackened - ख़राब करना, काला करना, काला करना

stuffed - करना, मिलाना, सामान, भरना, पदार्थ, घुसेड़ना, सामग्री, कार्यक्रम

been glad - खुश होना

patent - पेटेंट, एकस्व, सुन्दर तरीका

readjustments - पुनः समंजन, पुनर्सामंजस्य

Then we came to a gallery of simply colossal proportions, but singularly ill-lit, the floor of it running downward at a slight angle from the end at which I entered. At intervals white globes hung from the ceiling-many of them cracked and smashed-which suggested that originally the place had been artificially lit.

proportions - अंश, अनुपात, समानुपात, भाग

angle - कोण

intervals - विराम, अंतराल, अन्तराल, स्वरारांतराल, विराम काल, मद्यान्तर

globes - गोला, भूमण्ड़ल, पिंड, ग्लोब मान्चिट्र, ग्लोब मान्चिट्र, पृठ्बी

originally - स्पष्टतः, आदि में, शुरु शुरु में, शुरु शुरु में

artificially - कृत्रिम रूप से

Here I was more in my element, for rising on either side of me were the huge bulks of big machines, all greatly corroded and many broken down, but some still fairly complete. You know I have a certain weakness for mechanism, and I was inclined to linger among these; the more so as for the most part they had the interest of puzzles, and I could make only the vaguest guesses at what they were for.

bulks - शरीर, रेशेदार तत्व, दिखना, थोक, अधिकांश, बड़ा परिमाण

linger - रुका रहना, ठहराना, टिका रहना, टिका रहना, धीमे से करना

puzzles - समस्या, हैरान करना, पहेली, उलझनी, कूटप्रश्न

vaguest - अज्ञात, हल्का, अनिश्चित, अस्पष्ट, धुँधला

I fancied that if I could solve their puzzles I should find myself in possession of powers that might be of use against the Morlocks.

'Suddenly Weena came very close to my side. So suddenly that she startled me. Had it not been for her I do not think I should have noticed that the floor of the gallery sloped at all. [Footnote: It may be, of course, that the floor did not slope, but that the museum was built into the side of a hill.-ED.] The end I had come in at was quite above ground, and was lit by rare slit-like windows.

sloped - बहना, छलकना, गंदला पानी, कीचड़ में से जाना, सुअर का खाना

Footnote - पाद टिप्पणी, पाद टिप्पणी, पादटिप्पणी

slit - काटना, चीर, काट, चीरना, सँकरी दरार, सँकरी दरार

As you went down the length, the ground came up against these windows, until at last there was a pit like the "area" of a London house before each, and only a narrow line of daylight at the top. I went slowly along, puzzling about the machines, and had been too intent upon them to notice the gradual diminution of the light, until Weena's increasing apprehensions drew my attention.

puzzling - पेचीदा, (puzzle), पहेली, रहस्य, राज़, भेद

intent - स्थिर, डूबा, उद्देश्य, लीन, आसक्त चित्त, निष्ठा

diminution - कमी, ह्रास, अल्पीकरण, टौती

apprehensions - डर, भय, समझ, आशंका, गिरफ्तारी

Then I saw that the gallery ran down at last into a thick darkness. I hesitated, and then, as I looked round me, I saw that the dust was less abundant and its surface less even. Further away towards the dimness, it appeared to be broken by a number of small narrow footprints. My sense of the immediate presence of the Morlocks revived at that.

revived - पुनः उत्पन्न करना, फिर जीवित करना, पुनरुज्जीवित होना

I felt that I was wasting my time in the academic examination of machinery. I called to mind that it was already far advanced in the afternoon, and that I had still no weapon, no refuge, and no means of making a fire. And then down in the remote blackness of the gallery I heard a peculiar pattering, and the same odd noises I had heard down the well.

academic - विद्वान, पण्डिताऊ, अव्यावहारिक, सैद्धांतिक

'I took Weena's hand. Then, struck with a sudden idea, I left her and turned to a machine from which projected a lever not unlike those in a signal-box. Clambering upon the stand, and grasping this lever in my hands, I put all my weight upon it sideways. Suddenly Weena, deserted in the central aisle, began to whimper.

signal - संकेत, इशारा

grasping - समझना, पाने का प्रयत्न करना, समझ, पकड़, कसकर पकड़ना

whimper - ठिनठिनाहट, रिरियाहट, ठिनठिनाना, रिरियाना, रूं रूं करना

I had judged the strength of the lever pretty correctly, for it snapped after a minute's strain, and I rejoined her with a mace in my hand more than sufficient, I judged, for any Morlock skull I might encounter. And I longed very much to kill a Morlock or so. Very inhuman, you may think, to want to go killing one's own descendants!

snapped - प्रेस बटन, टूटना, काट लेना, गुर्राना, तात्कालिक/फ़ौरी/आसु

strain - तनना, तानना, खींचना

rejoined - प्रत्युत्तर देना, फिर मिलाना, प्रत्युत्तर देना

mace - गदा

sufficient - काफ़ी, पर्याप्त, यथेष्ट

encounter - अनुभव

But it was impossible, somehow, to feel any humanity in the things. Only my disinclination to leave Weena, and a persuasion that if I began to slake my thirst for murder my Time Machine might suffer, restrained me from going straight down the gallery and killing the brutes I heard.

disinclination - अरूचि, अनिच्छा

slake - कम करना, शांत करना, प्यास बुझाना, बुझाना

thirst - प्यास, तृष्णा, पिपासा, तृषा

brutes - भावशून्य मनुष्य, पाशविक, पशु, जानवर, क्रूर/निर्दय, कठोर/निर्दयी

'Well, mace in one hand and Weena in the other, I went out of that gallery and into another and still larger one, which at the first glance reminded me of a military chapel hung with tattered flags. The brown and charred rags that hung from the sides of it, I presently recognized as the decaying vestiges of books. They had long since dropped to pieces, and every semblance of print had left them.

military - जंगी, सैन्य, अस्करी, सैनिक

chapel - चैपल, नमाज़गाह slam, मुसल्ला slam

flags - लम्बे बालों वाला शिकारी कुत्ता, कमज्ॅओर पड़ जाना, कम होना

rags - छेड़ छाड़ करना, घटिया समाचारपत्र, बहुत तंग करना

decaying - खराब करना, ख़राब होना, विकार, ख़राब होना, पतन, विघटन होना

semblance - झलक, सादृश्य

But here and there were warped boards and cracked metallic clasps that told the tale well enough. Had I been a literary man I might, perhaps, have moralized upon the futility of all ambition. But as it was, the thing that struck me with keenest force was the enormous waste of labour to which this sombre wilderness of rotting paper testified.

warped - ताना, मोड़ना

clasps - मजबूत पकड़, बकसुआ, मजबूती से पकड़ना, कस कर पकड़ना, कस कर पकड़ना

literary - साहित्यिक, साहित्य

wilderness - निर्जन वनप्रांतर, निर्जन प्रदेश

rotting - सड़ाना, सड़ना

testified - सिद्ध करना, प्रमाण प्रस्तुत करना, विश्वास प्रकट करना

At the time I will confess that I thought chiefly of the Philosophical Transactions and my own seventeen papers upon physical optics.

transactions - लेन देन, कार्रवाई, सौदा, कार्य सम्पादन

optics - प्रकाश संबंधी, दृष्टि/प्रकाशीय, दृक्, दृष्टि संबंधी, आँख

'Then, going up a broad staircase, we came to what may once have been a gallery of technical chemistry. And here I had not a little hope of useful discoveries. Except at one end where the roof had collapsed, this gallery was well preserved. I went eagerly to every unbroken case. And at last, in one of the really air-tight cases, I found a box of matches. Very eagerly I tried them.

technical - तकनीकी, कानूनी, पारिभाषिक, प्राविधिक, प्रावैधिक

eagerly - व्यग्रता से

tight - कठिन, तंग, कंजूस, चुस्त, कसकर, ठोस, कम, कस कर भरा हुआ, घना

They were perfectly good. They were not even damp. I turned to Weena. "Dance," I cried to her in her own tongue. For now I had a weapon indeed against the horrible creatures we feared. And so, in that derelict museum, upon the thick soft carpeting of dust, to Weena's huge delight, I solemnly performed a kind of composite dance, whistling The Land of the Leal as cheerfully as I could.

damp - कम करना, गीला, नमी, नम करना, आद्र, सीलन, नम/गीला

composite - मिश्र, संयोजन, सम्मिश्र

whistling - सीटी, (whistle), सीटी

In part it was a modest cancan, in part a step dance, in part a skirt-dance (so far as my tail-coat permitted), and in part original. For I am naturally inventive, as you know.

cancan - dance

tail - पूंछ

permitted - परमिट, अनुमति देना, अनुमति, अनूज्ञा, आज्ञा, अनुज्ञा देना

inventive - आविष्कारशील, मौलिक, आविष्कारी

'Now, I still think that for this box of matches to have escaped the wear of time for immemorial years was a most strange, as for me it was a most fortunate thing. Yet, oddly enough, I found a far unlikelier substance, and that was camphor. I found it in a sealed jar, that by chance, I suppose, had been really hermetically sealed.

escaped - राहत, बचाव, भाग जाना, बाहर निकलना, बचने का उपाय, पलायन, भागना

immemorial - अति प्राचीन, चिरकाल

most strange - सबसे अजीब

fortunate - अनुकूल, सौभाग्यशाली, भाग्यशाली, भाग्यवान्, मंगलमय, सौभाग्यपूर्ण

unlikelier - अविश्वसनीय, असंभाव्य, असम्भव

camphor - कपूर

hermetically sealed - अंतर्गत सील

I fancied at first that it was paraffin wax, and smashed the glass accordingly. But the odour of camphor was unmistakable. In the universal decay this volatile substance had chanced to survive, perhaps through many thousands of centuries. It reminded me of a sepia painting I had once seen done from the ink of a fossil Belemnite that must have perished and become fossilized millions of years ago.

paraffin - पराफिन, मिट्टी तेल

wax - मोम

accordingly - फलस्वरूप, परिस्थिति के अनुसार, तदनुसार

unmistakable - सुस्पष्ट, असंदिग्ध

volatile - अस्थिर, फुर्तीला, बहने वाला, चंचल, धूर्त, चालाक

perished - खत्म हो जाना, मरना, मर जाना, नष्ट हो जाना, बरबाद हो जाना

fossilized - जीवावशेष बनना, रूढ़िवादी होना, रूढ़िवादी करना

I was about to throw it away, but I remembered that it was inflammable and burned with a good bright flame-was, in fact, an excellent candle-and I put it in my pocket. I found no explosives, however, nor any means of breaking down the bronze doors. As yet my iron crowbar was the most helpful thing I had chanced upon. Nevertheless I left that gallery greatly elated.

inflammable - उत्तेजनशील, ज्वलनशील, ज्वलंतशील, भकजल

explosives - विदारणशील पदाष्थ, विदारणशील पदाष्थ, बारूद, उड़ाऊ, विस्फोटक

crowbar - बोझ उठाने की डण्डी/लोहदंड, खनती, सब्बल

most helpful - सबसे उपयोगी

elated - प्रफुल्लित करना[होना]

'I cannot tell you all the story of that long afternoon. It would require a great effort of memory to recall my explorations in at all the proper order. I remember a long gallery of rusting stands of arms, and how I hesitated between my crowbar and a hatchet or a sword. I could not carry both, however, and my bar of iron promised best against the bronze gates.

rusting - मुर्चा लगने की प्रक्रिया, (rust)

hatchet - परशु, तवर

sword - तलवार, शमशेर

There were numbers of guns, pistols, and rifles. The most were masses of rust, but many were of some new metal, and still fairly sound. But any cartridges or powder there may once have been had rotted into dust. One corner I saw was charred and shattered; perhaps, I thought, by an explosion among the specimens.

pistols - पिस्तौल, पिस्तौल/तमंचा

rifles - एक प्रकार की बन्दूक, तलाशी लेना, तलाशी लेना, छीन लेना

masses - जनसमूह, ढेर सारा

cartridges - कारतूस, कार्ट्रिज, कारतुस

powder - चूर्ण, पाउडार

rotted - सड़ाना, सड़ना

charred - नौकरानी, जल कर काला हो जाना, जल कर काला हो जाना

shattered - नष्ट करना या हो जाना, टुकड़े टुकड़े कर देना या हो जाना

In another place was a vast array of idols-Polynesian, Mexican, Grecian, Phoenician, every country on earth I should think. And here, yielding to an irresistible impulse, I wrote my name upon the nose of a steatite monster from South America that particularly took my fancy.

another place - अन्य स्थान

idols - आदर्श, प्रतिमा, मूर्ति

Polynesian - of, from, or pertaining to Polynesia, person from Polynesia

Mexican - person from Mexico or of Mexican descent

Grecian - यूनानी

yielding - स्वीकृति, लचीला, समर्पण, सुनम्य, झुक जने वाला, दबैल

steatite - सिलखड़ी

'As the evening drew on, my interest waned. I went through gallery after gallery, dusty, silent, often ruinous, the exhibits sometimes mere heaps of rust and lignite, sometimes fresher. In one place I suddenly found myself near the model of a tin-mine, and then by the merest accident I discovered, in an air-tight case, two dynamite cartridges! I shouted "Eureka!" and smashed the case with joy.

waned - घटना, घटाव, ह्रास

exhibits - प्रदर्शन, प्रदर्शन करना, दिखाना, प्रदर्शनी, प्रदर्शित करना

lignite - लिग्नाइट

tin - टिन प्लेट, टिन कि पन्नी, टिन में सुरक्षित रखना

merest - केवल, मात्र, झील, पोखरा

dynamite - बारूद, बारूत

Eureka - मैंने पा लिया, मिल गया!

joy - आनन्द

Then came a doubt. I hesitated. Then, selecting a little side gallery, I made my essay. I never felt such a disappointment as I did in waiting five, ten, fifteen minutes for an explosion that never came. Of course the things were dummies, as I might have guessed from their presence.

selecting - विशिष्ट, चुनना, चुनना/छाँटना, चुनिन्दा

dummies - चुसनी, कठपुतली, काठ का उल्ल्, काठ का उल्ल्, दिखावटी

I really believe that had they not been so, I should have rushed off incontinently and blown Sphinx, bronze doors, and (as it proved) my chances of finding the Time Machine, all together into non-existence.

non - ग़ैर

'It was after that, I think, that we came to a little open court within the palace. It was turfed, and had three fruit-trees. So we rested and refreshed ourselves. Towards sunset I began to consider our position. Night was creeping upon us, and my inaccessible hiding-place had still to be found. But that troubled me very little now.

Court - आंगन, प्राङ्गण

turfed - इलाका, अधिकार क्षेत्र, घास बिछाना, तृशाच्छादित भूमि

fruit-trees - (fruit-trees) फल के पेड़

refreshed - फिर से भरना, ताजा करना, तरोताज़ा करना

I had in my possession a thing that was, perhaps, the best of all defences against the Morlocks-I had matches! I had the camphor in my pocket, too, if a blaze were needed. It seemed to me that the best thing we could do would be to pass the night in the open, protected by a fire. In the morning there was the getting of the Time Machine. Towards that, as yet, I had only my iron mace.

defences - बचाव, सुरक्षा, प्रतिरक्षा, रक्षाआ, रक्षा, रक्षा कड़ी

But now, with my growing knowledge, I felt very differently towards those bronze doors. Up to this, I had refrained from forcing them, largely because of the mystery on the other side. They had never impressed me as being very strong, and I hoped to find my bar of iron not altogether inadequate for the work.

refrained - दूर रहना, आड़ना, स्थायी, परहेज करना, टेक, चिर परिचित पुकार

forcing - बल, गुण, दल, विवश करना, शक्ति, शक्ति प्रयोग करना, लागू होना

inadequate - अयोग्य, अपर्याप्त

Chapter IX

'We emerged from the palace while the sun was still in part above the horizon. I was determined to reach the White Sphinx early the next morning, and ere the dusk I purposed pushing through the woods that had stopped me on the previous journey. My plan was to go as far as possible that night, and then, building a fire, to sleep in the protection of its glare.

horizon - क्षितिज

ere - पहले, शीघ्र

Accordingly, as we went along I gathered any sticks or dried grass I saw, and presently had my arms full of such litter. Thus loaded, our progress was slower than I had anticipated, and besides Weena was tired. And I began to suffer from sleepiness too; so that it was full night before we reached the wood.

sticks - सथापित करना, टेक लगाना, रखना, चिपकाना, चूभना, अटकना

litter - गंदगी, बिखेरना, पालकी, एक साथ पैदा हुए बच्चे, कचरा

thus - इस प्रकार

loaded - भारी, मिश्रण, भरना, भोझ हलका होना, भार, डालना, भर देना

sleepiness - उनींदापन

Upon the shrubby hill of its edge Weena would have stopped, fearing the darkness before us; but a singular sense of impending calamity, that should indeed have served me as a warning, drove me onward. I had been without sleep for a night and two days, and I was feverish and irritable. I felt sleep coming upon me, and the Morlocks with it.

shrubby - श्रब्बी

singular - एकवचन

impending - आसन्न

calamity - आपदा, मुसीबत, आफ़त

warning - चेतावनी, (warn)

onward - आगे, आगे बढता हुआ, बढ़ते हुए

feverish - उत्तेजित, ज्वरजन्य, हल्का बुखार होना, ज्वरग्रस्त

irritable - अतिसंवेदनशील, क्रोधी, संवेदनशील, चिड़चिडा

'While we hesitated, among the black bushes behind us, and dim against their blackness, I saw three crouching figures. There was scrub and long grass all about us, and I did not feel safe from their insidious approach. The forest, I calculated, was rather less than a mile across.

scrub - मार्जन करना

insidious - घातक, परोक्ष, प्रच्छन्न रूप से, धोखे बाज़

approach - पास आना

calculated - निश्चित करना, समझना, गिनती करना, व्यव्स्था करना, हिसाब रखना

If we could get through it to the bare hill-side, there, as it seemed to me, was an altogether safer resting-place; I thought that with my matches and my camphor I could contrive to keep my path illuminated through the woods. Yet it was evident that if I was to flourish matches with my hands I should have to abandon my firewood; so, rather reluctantly, I put it down.

resting-place - (resting-place) आरामस्थान

abandon - छोड़ देना

firewood - लकड़ी

reluctantly - अनिच्छा से, अनिच्छापूर्वक

And then it came into my head that I would amaze our friends behind by lighting it. I was to discover the atrocious folly of this proceeding, but it came to my mind as an ingenious move for covering our retreat.

amaze - चकित कर देना

atrocious - घटिया, नृशंस, भद्दा, पाशविक, भयानक

move for - ले जाओ

'I don't know if you have ever thought what a rare thing flame must be in the absence of man and in a temperate climate. The sun's heat is rarely strong enough to burn, even when it is focused by dewdrops, as is sometimes the case in more tropical districts. Lightning may blast and blacken, but it rarely gives rise to widespread fire.

temperate - समशीतोष्ण, सम शीतोष्ण, संतुलित, संयमित, आत्मसंयमी

dewdrops - ओस का मोती

more tropical - अधिक उष्णतटीय

blast - तेज झोंका

blacken - ख़राब करना, काला करना, काला करना

widespread - व्यापक, दूर दूर तक फैला हुआ, विस्तीर्ण

Decaying vegetation may occasionally smoulder with the heat of its fermentation, but this rarely results in flame. In this decadence, too, the art of fire-making had been forgotten on the earth. The red tongues that went licking up my heap of wood were an altogether new and strange thing to Weena.

vegetation - वनस्पति, वनस्पति प्रवर्धन, पौधों की वृद्धि, पेड़ पौधे

smoulder - सुलग, सुलगन

fermentation - उत्तेजना, सिर्का, खमीरण, किण्वन, उफान लाना

licking - पिटाई, हार, (lick) पिटाई

'She wanted to run to it and play with it. I believe she would have cast herself into it had I not restrained her. But I caught her up, and in spite of her struggles, plunged boldly before me into the wood. For a little way the glare of my fire lit the path.

plunged - उछाल आना, फँसाना, प्रवेश करना, घुसेड़ना, डुबकी, डूबना, गोता

Looking back presently, I could see, through the crowded stems, that from my heap of sticks the blaze had spread to some bushes adjacent, and a curved line of fire was creeping up the grass of the hill. I laughed at that, and turned again to the dark trees before me.

stems - रोकना, उत्पन्न होना, धातु, गलही, नली, तना, डंठल निकलना

adjacent - निकटवर्ती, लगा हुआ, पास, बगलवाला, पास का, समीपस्थ, बगल का

curved line - वक्र रेखा

It was very black, and Weena clung to me convulsively, but there was still, as my eyes grew accustomed to the darkness, sufficient light for me to avoid the stems. Overhead it was simply black, except where a gap of remote blue sky shone down upon us here and there. I struck none of my matches because I had no hand free.

accustomed - आदी बना करना, साधना, अभ्यस्त करना, आदत डालना

overhead - सिर के ऊपर से होने वाला

Upon my left arm I carried my little one, in my right hand I had my iron bar.

'For some way I heard nothing but the crackling twigs under my feet, the faint rustle of the breeze above, and my own breathing and the throb of the blood-vessels in my ears. Then I seemed to know of a pattering about me. I pushed on grimly. The pattering grew more distinct, and then I caught the same queer sound and voices I had heard in the Under-world.

crackling - सुअर का भुना मांस, सुअर का भुना मांस

rustle - चुराना, सरसराहट, झड़झड़ाहट, सरसराना, झड़झड़ा

vessels - नस, नलिका, बर्तन, पोत, जलयान, पात्र, रक्तवाहिनी, नाड़ी, रग

grimly - कठोरता से, कठोरता से

There were evidently several of the Morlocks, and they were closing in upon me. Indeed, in another minute I felt a tug at my coat, then something at my arm. And Weena shivered violently, and became quite still.

tug - सितारा मछली, कर्षण नौका, झटके से खींचना, झटका देना

'It was time for a match. But to get one I must put her down. I did so, and, as I fumbled with my pocket, a struggle began in the darkness about my knees, perfectly silent on her part and with the same peculiar cooing sounds from the Morlocks. Soft little hands, too, were creeping over my coat and back, touching even my neck. Then the match scratched and fizzed.

fumbled - टटोलना, चूक, गड़बड़ाना, टटोलना{बेढंगे तरीके से}

scratched - खरोंचना, खरोंच, वापस लेना, खोदना, कामचलाऊ, हटा लेना, मिटाना

fizzed - फेनिल पेय, गैस, सनसनाना, गैस निकलने की फुफकार, आक्रामक रुख

I held it flaring, and saw the white backs of the Morlocks in flight amid the trees. I hastily took a lump of camphor from my pocket, and prepared to light it as soon as the match should wane. Then I looked at Weena. She was lying clutching my feet and quite motionless, with her face to the ground. With a sudden fright I stooped to her. She seemed scarcely to breathe.

lump - ढेला, ढेर, मूर्ख, गोला, सूजन, मिल्ना, डेर करना, गुमड़ा

stooped - झुक कर खड़ा होना, झुकना, नीचे गिरना, झुकाव, झपट्टा मारना

breathe - सांस लेना

I lit the block of camphor and flung it to the ground, and as it split and flared up and drove back the Morlocks and the shadows, I knelt down and lifted her. The wood behind seemed full of the stir and murmur of a great company!

split - चीरा, चम्पत होना, बंटना, टुकड़े करना, फटना, फाड़ना, काट

flared up - उगाई

knelt - घुटने के बल बैठना, घुटने टेकना, घुटने टेकना

'She seemed to have fainted. I put her carefully upon my shoulder and rose to push on, and then there came a horrible realization. In manoeuvring with my matches and Weena, I had turned myself about several times, and now I had not the faintest idea in what direction lay my path. For all I knew, I might be facing back towards the Palace of Green Porcelain. I found myself in a cold sweat.

fainted - धीमा, हल्की, धीमी, बेहोश होना, अस्पष्ट, चकराया हुआ, मंद

manoeuvring - चाल, कौशल, दाँव, युक्ति, युक्तिचाल चलना

cold sweat - ठंडी स्लीप

I had to think rapidly what to do. I determined to build a fire and encamp where we were. I put Weena, still motionless, down upon a turfy bole, and very hastily, as my first lump of camphor waned, I began collecting sticks and leaves. Here and there out of the darkness round me the Morlocks'eyes shone like carbuncles.

rapidly - शीघ्रता से, तेज़ी से

encamp - डेरा डालना, शिविर लगाना, शिविर लगाना

bole - पेंड़ का मुख्य तना

carbuncles - रक्तमणि, स्लेटी लालिमा लिए हुए भूरा रंग, लन्दन ब्राऊन

'The camphor flickered and went out. I lit a match, and as I did so, two white forms that had been approaching Weena dashed hastily away. One was so blinded by the light that he came straight for me, and I felt his bones grind under the blow of my fist. He gave a whoop of dismay, staggered a little way, and fell down. I lit another piece of camphor, and went on gathering my bonfire.

blinded - गुप्त, झिलमिली, अविवेचित, बहाना, नासमझ, बुद्धिहीन, असफल, गलत

grind - पीसना

whoop - हुंकारना

bonfire - अलाव

Presently I noticed how dry was some of the foliage above me, for since my arrival on the Time Machine, a matter of a week, no rain had fallen. So, instead of casting about among the trees for fallen twigs, I began leaping up and dragging down branches. Very soon I had a choking smoky fire of green wood and dry sticks, and could economize my camphor.

foliage - पर्णसमूह

casting - भूमिका आबंटन कार्यअ, कलाकारों का चुनाव, ढलाई कार्यअ, ढलाई

choking - चोक, सांस रूकना, सांस रूकने की स्थिति, सांस रूकना

smoky - धुँधुआता, धुआँ करने वाला, धुएँ से भरा, धुमवत, धुआँदार/धूमी

Then I turned to where Weena lay beside my iron mace. I tried what I could to revive her, but she lay like one dead. I could not even satisfy myself whether or not she breathed.

breathed - आराम करना, बहना, साँस लेना, व्यक्त करना, कहना, चलना, लेना

'Now, the smoke of the fire beat over towards me, and it must have made me heavy of a sudden. Moreover, the vapour of camphor was in the air. My fire would not need replenishing for an hour or so. I felt very weary after my exertion, and sat down. The wood, too, was full of a slumbrous murmur that I did not understand. I seemed just to nod and open my eyes.

Moreover - इसके अलावा, इसके अलावा

replenishing - फिर से भरना, पूर्ति{ईधन की}

exertion - प्रयास, परिश्रम, श्रम

slumbrous - उनींदा

nod - ऊँघना, झूमना, सिर हिलाना, हुक्म, सम्मति, सहमति प्रकट करना

But all was dark, and the Morlocks had their hands upon me. Flinging off their clinging fingers I hastily felt in my pocket for the match-box, and-it had gone! Then they gripped and closed with me again. In a moment I knew what had happened. I had slept, and my fire had gone out, and the bitterness of death came over my soul. The forest seemed full of the smell of burning wood.

clinging - चिपक जाना, टिके रहना, लिपट जाना, बने रहना, चिपक जाना

bitterness - तीखापन, कटुता, तीक्ष्णता, शोक, कटु स्वभाव, कड़ुवापन, दुःख, द्वेश

soul - आत्मा, जीवात्मा

I was caught by the neck, by the hair, by the arms, and pulled down. It was indescribably horrible in the darkness to feel all these soft creatures heaped upon me. I felt as if I was in a monstrous spider's web. I was overpowered, and went down. I felt little teeth nipping at my neck. I rolled over, and as I did so my hand came against my iron lever. It gave me strength.

pulled down - नीचे खड़ा कर दिया

rolled - बराबर करना, पिण्ड, तरंगित होना, घुमाना, डगमगाना, लपेटना, गोला

I struggled up, shaking the human rats from me, and, holding the bar short, I thrust where I judged their faces might be. I could feel the succulent giving of flesh and bone under my blows, and for a moment I was free.

succulent - रसीला, गूदेदार पादप

'The strange exultation that so often seems to accompany hard fighting came upon me. I knew that both I and Weena were lost, but I determined to make the Morlocks pay for their meat. I stood with my back to a tree, swinging the iron bar before me. The whole wood was full of the stir and cries of them. A minute passed.

exultation - उल्लास

accompany - साथ चलना

Their voices seemed to rise to a higher pitch of excitement, and their movements grew faster. Yet none came within reach. I stood glaring at the blackness. Then suddenly came hope. What if the Morlocks were afraid? And close on the heels of that came a strange thing. The darkness seemed to grow luminous.

pitch - खेल के लिए स्थान

Very dimly I began to see the Morlocks about me-three battered at my feet-and then I recognized, with incredulous surprise, that the others were running, in an incessant stream, as it seemed, from behind me, and away through the wood in front. And their backs seemed no longer white, but reddish.

battered - पीटना, मारना/कूटना, बल्लेबाज़, अंडा फेटना

incessant - सतत, अनवरत, अविराम, सतत्, अश्रांत

stream - नदी, रूद

reddish - रक्तिम, कुछ रक्त वर्ण

As I stood agape, I saw a little red spark go drifting across a gap of starlight between the branches, and vanish. And at that I understood the smell of burning wood, the slumbrous murmur that was growing now into a gusty roar, the red glow, and the Morlocks'flight.

agape - मुँह बाये हुए, मुँह बाये हुए

spark - चिंगारी

starlight - तारों का प्रकाश, नक्षत्र रोशनी

roar - गरजना, चिल्लाना, शोरगुल, ठहाका लगाना, गड़गड़ाहट, ठहाका, भभक

'stepping out from behind my tree and looking back, I saw, through the black pillars of the nearer trees, the flames of the burning forest. It was my first fire coming after me. With that I looked for Weena, but she was gone. The hissing and crackling behind me, the explosive thud as each fresh tree burst into flame, left little time for reflection.

stepping out - निकल रहा है

flames - प्रेमिका, चमकना, आग की ज्वाला, प्रेमी, जला देना, दहकना

explosive - विस्फोटक

My iron bar still gripped, I followed in the Morlocks'path. It was a close race. Once the flames crept forward so swiftly on my right as I ran that I was outflanked and had to strike off to the left. But at last I emerged upon a small open space, and as I did so, a Morlock came blundering towards me, and past me, and went on straight into the fire!

outflanked - स बढ़ कर होना, बहिर्वाह, चौका देनेवाली कृती से आगे बढ़ना

'And now I was to see the most weird and horrible thing, I think, of all that I beheld in that future age. This whole space was as bright as day with the reflection of the fire. In the centre was a hillock or tumulus, surmounted by a scorched hawthorn.

weird - निराला, अनोखा, भयानक, अतिप्राकृतिक, अनूठा, अजीब

hillock - टीला, ढूह, भीटा, छोटी पहाड़ी

tumulus - कब्र स्तूप

surmounted - अधिक होना, पार करना, चोटी पर चढ़ना, ऊपर चढ़ा होना

hawthorn - नागफनी

Beyond this was another arm of the burning forest, with yellow tongues already writhing from it, completely encircling the space with a fence of fire. Upon the hill-side were some thirty or forty Morlocks, dazzled by the light and heat, and blundering hither and thither against each other in their bewilderment.

writhing - कुलबुलाता हुआ, छटपटाता हुआ, (writhe) कुलबुलाता हुआ

encircling - घेरना, (encircle) घेरना

fence - बाड़

At first I did not realize their blindness, and struck furiously at them with my bar, in a frenzy of fear, as they approached me, killing one and crippling several more. But when I had watched the gestures of one of them groping under the hawthorn against the red sky, and heard their moans, I was assured of their absolute helplessness and misery in the glare, and I struck no more of them.

crippling - अपाहिज करना, लंगड़ा मनुष्य, अपाहिज व्यक्ति, अपाहिज व्यक्ति

red sky - लाल आसमान

moans - कराहना, शिकायत करना, शोक करना, कराह

helplessness - असहायता, निराश्रयता, बेबसी

'Yet every now and then one would come straight towards me, setting loose a quivering horror that made me quick to elude him. At one time the flames died down somewhat, and I feared the foul creatures would presently be able to see me. I was thinking of beginning the fight by killing some of them before this should happen; but the fire burst out again brightly, and I stayed my hand.

quivering - कंपन, तुणीर, झुरझुरी, तरकश, झपक, काँपना, हलके से कापना

elude - हाथ न आना, हाथ न आना

somewhat - कुछ, किंचित, थोड़ा बहुत, कुछ कुछ

I walked about the hill among them and avoided them, looking for some trace of Weena. But Weena was gone.

'At last I sat down on the summit of the hillock, and watched this strange incredible company of blind things groping to and fro, and making uncanny noises to each other, as the glare of the fire beat on them. The coiling uprush of smoke streamed across the sky, and through the rare tatters of that red canopy, remote as though they belonged to another universe, shone the little stars.

uncanny - विचित्र, अतिप्राकृतिक, अलौकिक

coiling - मोड़ना, लपेटना, काँयल, अंतर्गर्भाशयी यंत्र, लच्छा

Two or three Morlocks came blundering into me, and I drove them off with blows of my fists, trembling as I did so.

fists - मुट्ठी, मुठ्ठी

'For the most part of that night I was persuaded it was a nightmare. I bit myself and screamed in a passionate desire to awake. I beat the ground with my hands, and got up and sat down again, and wandered here and there, and again sat down. Then I would fall to rubbing my eyes and calling upon God to let me awake.

persuaded - विश्वास दिलाना, मनाना, समझाना, के लिए राजी करना

screamed - चीखना, चिल्लाना, ज़बर्दस्त मज़ाक, ठहाका

awake - जागना

Thrice I saw Morlocks put their heads down in a kind of agony and rush into the flames. But, at last, above the subsiding red of the fire, above the streaming masses of black smoke and the whitening and blackening tree stumps, and the diminishing numbers of these dim creatures, came the white light of the day.

thrice - तिबारा, तिगुना

rush - शीघ्रता करना, जल्दी करना

subsiding - घटना, शांत होना, बैठ जाना, कम हो जाना, कम होना, उतर जाना

diminishing - कमी होना, (diminish) कमी होना

'I searched again for traces of Weena, but there were none. It was plain that they had left her poor little body in the forest. I cannot describe how it relieved me to think that it had escaped the awful fate to which it seemed destined. As I thought of that, I was almost moved to begin a massacre of the helpless abominations about me, but I contained myself.

relieved - कम करना, सहायता करना, उठाना, मूट्र त्यागना, हल्का करना

The hillock, as I have said, was a kind of island in the forest. From its summit I could now make out through a haze of smoke the Palace of Green Porcelain, and from that I could get my bearings for the White Sphinx.

haze - कोहरा

bearings - आचरण

And so, leaving the remnant of these damned souls still going hither and thither and moaning, as the day grew clearer, I tied some grass about my feet and limped on across smoking ashes and among black stems, that still pulsated internally with fire, towards the hiding-place of the Time Machine.

remnant - बचा हुआ टुकड़ा, अवशेष, बचा हुआ टुकड़ा, बचा हुआ

pulsated - धडकना/फडकना, कम्पायमान होना, फडकना

internally - आंतरिक रूप से, भीतरी तौर पर

I walked slowly, for I was almost exhausted, as well as lame, and I felt the intensest wretchedness for the horrible death of little Weena. It seemed an overwhelming calamity. Now, in this old familiar room, it is more like the sorrow of a dream than an actual loss. But that morning it left me absolutely lonely again-terribly alone.

intensest - अत्यधिक, तीव्र, भावुक, गहन, गम्भीर, तीक्ष्ण/उत्कट/अतिमात्र, तेज

overwhelming - पराजित करना, वश में करना, विह्वल होना, छा जाना, अभिभुत होना

I began to think of this house of mine, of this fireside, of some of you, and with such thoughts came a longing that was pain.

fireside - आग के पास, अंगीठी का कार्निस

thoughts - विचार, मत, इरादा, विचारधारा, मनन, थोड़ा सा, विचार शक्ति, चिन्तन

'But as I walked over the smoking ashes under the bright morning sky, I made a discovery. In my trouser pocket were still some loose matches. The box must have leaked before it was lost.

trouser - पैंट

leaked - बूँद बूँद गिरना, रहस्योद्घाटन, रहस्योदघाटन, छिद्र, पेशाब करना

Chapter X

'About eight or nine in the morning I came to the same seat of yellow metal from which I had viewed the world upon the evening of my arrival. I thought of my hasty conclusions upon that evening and could not refrain from laughing bitterly at my confidence.

conclusions - समाप्ति, निष्कर्ष, अंतिम निर्णय, हश्र

refrain from laughing - हंसने से रोको

bitterly - अधिक, बहुत ज़्यादा, कस के, फूट फूट कर, कड़ुवाहट के साथ

Here was the same beautiful scene, the same abundant foliage, the same splendid palaces and magnificent ruins, the same silver river running between its fertile banks. The gay robes of the beautiful people moved hither and thither among the trees. Some were bathing in exactly the place where I had saved Weena, and that suddenly gave me a keen stab of pain.

magnificent - शानदार

fertile - उपजाऊ

gay - समलैंगिक

stab - भोंकना

And like blots upon the landscape rose the cupolas above the ways to the Under-world. I understood now what all the beauty of the Over-world people covered. Very pleasant was their day, as pleasant as the day of the cattle in the field. Like the cattle, they knew of no enemies and provided against no needs. And their end was the same.

blots - दाग, धब्बा, दाग/धब्बा, सोख्ता कागज़ से सोख लेना

cupolas - गुबन्द

enemies - दुश्मन, शत्रु, अरि, शट्रु, वैरी

'I grieved to think how brief the dream of the human intellect had been. It had committed suicide. It had set itself steadfastly towards comfort and ease, a balanced society with security and permanency as its watchword, it had attained its hopes-to come to this at last. Once, life and property must have reached almost absolute safety.

grieved - शोका मनाना, दुःखित होना, रंज करना, दुःखएना, दुःखित होना

committed - करना, लिखना, वचनबद्ध होना, वादा करना, भेजना, समर्पण करना

permanency - स्थायित्व

property - संपत्ति

The rich had been assured of his wealth and comfort, the toiler assured of his life and work. No doubt in that perfect world there had been no unemployed problem, no social question left unsolved. And a great quiet had followed.

wealth - धन, संपत्ति

toiler - परिश्रमी

unemployed - बेकार, बेरोज़गार

unsolved - अनसुलझा

'It is a law of nature we overlook, that intellectual versatility is the compensation for change, danger, and trouble. An animal perfectly in harmony with its environment is a perfect mechanism. Nature never appeals to intelligence until habit and instinct are useless. There is no intelligence where there is no change and no need of change.

versatility - प्रतिभा, अन्य विषय को विचारने की शक्ति

compensation - मुआवजा, हरजाना, हर्जाना, क्षतिपूरण, प्रतिकर

appeals - आग्रह करना, अपील करना/याचना करना, संकेत करना, अनुरोध करना

useless - बेकार

Only those animals partake of intelligence that have to meet a huge variety of needs and dangers.

'So, as I see it, the Upper-world man had drifted towards his feeble prettiness, and the Under-world to mere mechanical industry. But that perfect state had lacked one thing even for mechanical perfection-absolute permanency. Apparently as time went on, the feeding of the Under-world, however it was effected, had become disjointed.

drifted - बहना, ढेर, धारा, अभिप्राय, झुखाव, प्रवाहित करना, आशय, बहाव

lacked - अलक्त

perfection - कमाल

disjointed - असंबद्ध, जोड़ अलग करना

Mother Necessity, who had been staved off for a few thousand years, came back again, and she began below. The Under-world being in contact with machinery, which, however perfect, still needs some little thought outside habit, had probably retained perforce rather more initiative, if less of every other human character, than the Upper.

retained - रोकना, रहने देना, सुरक्षित रखना, पक्का करना, रख लेना, न खोना

initiative - अवसर, अगुआई, कदम, नेतृत्व, प्रस्ताव, पहल, पहलकदमी

And when other meat failed them, they turned to what old habit had hitherto forbidden. So I say I saw it in my last view of the world of Eight Hundred and Two Thousand Seven Hundred and One. It may be as wrong an explanation as mortal wit could invent. It is how the thing shaped itself to me, and as that I give it to you.

forbidden - रोकना, मना करना, वर्जित करना, मना करना, निषेध करना

mortal - घातक, मर्त्य/मरणशील, भीषण, मरणांतक, मनुष्य, जानलेवा, नश्वर

wit - हाजिर-जवाबी

'After the fatigues, excitements, and terrors of the past days, and in spite of my grief, this seat and the tranquil view and the warm sunlight were very pleasant. I was very tired and sleepy, and soon my theorizing passed into dozing. Catching myself at that, I took my own hint, and spreading myself out upon the turf I had a long and refreshing sleep.

fatigues - थकाना, थकान, थकावट, थकन

grief - दुःख, शोक, ग़म, मातम

tranquil - शांत, प्रशान्त, प्रशांत, असंभ्रम

sleepy - उनींदा, निद्रालु

theorizing - अनुमान लगाना

dozing - ऊँघता, (doze)

hint - झलक, संकेत, सुझाव, इशारा, संकेत देना, परोक्ष संकेत, इंगित करना

refreshing - फिर से भरना, ताजा करना, तरोताज़ा करना

'I awoke a little before sunsetting. I now felt safe against being caught napping by the Morlocks, and, stretching myself, I came on down the hill towards the White Sphinx. I had my crowbar in one hand, and the other hand played with the matches in my pocket.

awoke - जगा हुआ, जागरूक, जगाना, जागना, जागे हुए

sunsetting - सूर्यास्त, समापक, डूबता, दिनांत

being caught - पकड़ा जाना

napping - झपकी, अल्प निद्रा, झपकी लेना, रोएंदार वस्ट्र

stretching - फैलाना, फैल जाना, पंक्ति, विस्तार, फैला हुआ होना, फैलाव, तानना

'And now came a most unexpected thing. As I approached the pedestal of the sphinx I found the bronze valves were open. They had slid down into grooves.

most unexpected - सबसे अनपेक्षित

slid - स्लिड, (slide), t-needed

grooves - ग्रूव{नाली जैसा}, ग्रूव बनाना, खंडी, खॉचा

'At that I stopped short before them, hesitating to enter.

'Within was a small apartment, and on a raised place in the corner of this was the Time Machine. I had the small levers in my pocket. So here, after all my elaborate preparations for the siege of the White Sphinx, was a meek surrender. I threw my iron bar away, almost sorry not to use it.

elaborate - विस्तार से बनाना, व्याख्या, व्यापक, विस्तृत करना

preparations - खाना, सम्पाक, अभ्यासकार्य, तैयार करना, बनाना, म्पाक, तैयारि

siege - घेरा, घेराबंदी

meek - दब्बू, विनम्र, डरपोक, अहंकाररहित व्यक्ति, कातर

surrender - समर्पण

'A sudden thought came into my head as I stooped towards the portal. For once, at least, I grasped the mental operations of the Morlocks. Suppressing a strong inclination to laugh, I stepped through the bronze frame and up to the Time Machine. I was surprised to find it had been carefully oiled and cleaned.

suppressing - रोकना, समाप्त करना, दबाना/दमन करना, दबा देना

inclination - रुचि, झुकाव, शौक, ढाल, पसंद, प्रवृति

I have suspected since that the Morlocks had even partially taken it to pieces while trying in their dim way to grasp its purpose.

'Now as I stood and examined it, finding a pleasure in the mere touch of the contrivance, the thing I had expected happened. The bronze panels suddenly slid up and struck the frame with a clang. I was in the dark-trapped. So the Morlocks thought. At that I chuckled gleefully.

clang - झनझनाना

trapped - चाल, फंदा, डालना, पकड़ना, फँस जाना, अटकना, शिकार पिंजरा

chuckled - दबी हँसी हँसना, दबी हुई हँसी, रुक के हँसना, दबी हुई हँसी

gleefully - प्रसन्नतापूर्वक

'I could already hear their murmuring laughter as they came towards me. Very calmly I tried to strike the match. I had only to fix on the levers and depart then like a ghost. But I had overlooked one little thing. The matches were of that abominable kind that light only on the box.

murmuring - फुसफुसाता, सरगोशी करता, (murmur)

calmly - शांतिपूर्वक, शान्ती से

depart - रवाना

abominable - घटिया, नृशंस, भद्दा, घृणित, घिनौना, बीभत्स, ख़राब

'You may imagine how all my calm vanished. The little brutes were close upon me. One touched me. I made a sweeping blow in the dark at them with the levers, and began to scramble into the saddle of the machine. Then came one hand upon me and then another. Then I had simply to fight against their persistent fingers for my levers, and at the same time feel for the studs over which these fitted.

sweeping - भारी, महत्त्वपूर्ण, व्यापक, लहराता हुआ, अंधाधुंध, सफाई करना

scramble - छीना झपटी, गड़बड़ा देना, अस्फुट कर देना, छीना झपटी करना

studs - कील, भर देना, अश्वशाला, पशुशाला, स्टड पिन, प्रजनक घोड़ा

One, indeed, they almost got away from me. As it slipped from my hand, I had to butt in the dark with my head-I could hear the Morlock's skull ring-to recover it. It was a nearer thing than the fight in the forest, I think, this last scramble.

butt - किसी चीज को सिर से टक्कर मारना

ring - अंगूठी

'But at last the lever was fitted and pulled over. The clinging hands slipped from me. The darkness presently fell from my eyes. I found myself in the same grey light and tumult I have already described.

Chapter XI

'I have already told you of the sickness and confusion that comes with time travelling. And this time I was not seated properly in the saddle, but sideways and in an unstable fashion. For an indefinite time I clung to the machine as it swayed and vibrated, quite unheeding how I went, and when I brought myself to look at the dials again I was amazed to find where I had arrived.

sickness - रोग, बीमारी, मिचली, उल्टी आना

properly - ठीक, =ठीक से, ठीक तरह से

vibrated - हिचकिचाना, कम्पायमान होना, स्पंदित होना, काँपना, गूँजना

unheeding - बेपरवाह

amazed - चकित कर देना

One dial records days, and another thousands of days, another millions of days, and another thousands of millions. Now, instead of reversing the levers, I had pulled them over so as to go forward with them, and when I came to look at these indicators I found that the thousands hand was sweeping round as fast as the seconds hand of a watch-into futurity.

dial - मिलाना

reversing - an act of reversal, (revers) an act of reversal

indicators - सूचक, संकेतक

'As I drove on, a peculiar change crept over the appearance of things. The palpitating greyness grew darker; then-though I was still travelling with prodigious velocity-the blinking succession of day and night, which was usually indicative of a slower pace, returned, and grew more and more marked. This puzzled me very much at first.

palpitating - धडकना, धड़कना, फड़कना

prodigious - आश्चर्यजनक, भयंकर, अनिष्टसूचक, अति विशाल

indicative - जताने वाला, निर्देशात्मक, जताने वाला, निर्देशक, निश्चयार्थक

The alternations of night and day grew slower and slower, and so did the passage of the sun across the sky, until they seemed to stretch through centuries. At last a steady twilight brooded over the earth, a twilight only broken now and then when a comet glared across the darkling sky.

alternations - प्रत्यावर्तन

stretch - फैलाना, फैल जाना, पंक्ति, विस्तार, फैला हुआ होना, फैलाव, तानना

brooded - चिंतित हो कर सोचता रहना, चिन्ता करना, अंड समूह, सेएना, खानदान

comet - धूमकेतु, केतुग्रह, पुच्छल तारा, केतु

The band of light that had indicated the sun had long since disappeared; for the sun had ceased to set-it simply rose and fell in the west, and grew ever broader and more red. All trace of the moon had vanished. The circling of the stars, growing slower and slower, had given place to creeping points of light.

broader - प्रभावशाली, साधारण, मुख्य, अश्लील, स्पष्ट, औरत, मोटा, उदार

At last, some time before I stopped, the sun, red and very large, halted motionless upon the horizon, a vast dome glowing with a dull heat, and now and then suffering a momentary extinction. At one time it had for a little while glowed more brilliantly again, but it speedily reverted to its sullen red heat.

dome - गुंबज, गुंबदाकार, गुम्बद, गुंबद

glowing - चमकना, गरम करना, रंगना, लाली, दीप्ति, प्रफुल्लित होना

momentary - क्षणिक

glowed - चमकना, गरम करना, रंगना, लाली, दीप्ति, प्रफुल्लित होना

reverted - वापस आना, फिर लौट आना

sullen - बदमिजाज़, घिरा हुआ, खिन्न, रूठा हुआ

I perceived by this slowing down of its rising and setting that the work of the tidal drag was done. The earth had come to rest with one face to the sun, even as in our own time the moon faces the earth. Very cautiously, for I remembered my former headlong fall, I began to reverse my motion.

tidal - ज्वार भाटा वाला, ज्वार भाटे का

drag - बलपूर्वक घसीटना, खींचना

cautiously - सतर्कतापूर्वक

reverse - उलटना

Slower and slower went the circling hands until the thousands one seemed motionless and the daily one was no longer a mere mist upon its scale. Still slower, until the dim outlines of a desolate beach grew visible.

scale - छिलका

outlines - रूपरेखा, दर्शाना, खाका, सारांश, रूपरेखा आरेखित करना

'I stopped very gently and sat upon the Time Machine, looking round. The sky was no longer blue. North-eastward it was inky black, and out of the blackness shone brightly and steadily the pale white stars. Overhead it was a deep Indian red and starless, and south-eastward it grew brighter to a glowing scarlet where, cut by the horizon, lay the huge hull of the sun, red and motionless.

Indian - भारतीय, भारत संबंधी, भारत वासी, हिन्दुस्तानी

starless - तारारहित, बिना तारों का, तारों के बिना

scarlet - क़िरमिज़

hull - छिलका, पेटा, छीलना, छिलका उतारना, हाज का ढाँचा

The rocks about me were of a harsh reddish colour, and all the trace of life that I could see at first was the intensely green vegetation that covered every projecting point on their south-eastern face. It was the same rich green that one sees on forest moss or on the lichen in caves: plants which like these grow in a perpetual twilight.

intensely - उत्कटता से, तीव्रता से

lichen - लाइकेन, शैवाल, काई, शैक

perpetual - निरन्तर, शाश्वत, चिरस्थायी, अनवरत, चिर

'The machine was standing on a sloping beach. The sea stretched away to the south-west, to rise into a sharp bright horizon against the wan sky. There were no breakers and no waves, for not a breath of wind was stirring. Only a slight oily swell rose and fell like a gentle breathing, and showed that the eternal sea was still moving and living.

And along the margin where the water sometimes broke was a thick incrustation of salt-pink under the lurid sky. There was a sense of oppression in my head, and I noticed that I was breathing very fast. The sensation reminded me of my only experience of mountaineering, and from that I judged the air to be more rarefied than it is now.

margin - हद, हाशिया, अतिरिक्त राशि

incrustation - अलंकरण, पपड़ी पड़ना, पपड़ी, पपड़ी पड़ना, पर्पटन

lurid - भड़कीला, सनसनीखेज़

'Far away up the desolate slope I heard a harsh scream, and saw a thing like a huge white butterfly go slanting and fluttering up into the sky and, circling, disappear over some low hillocks beyond. The sound of its voice was so dismal that I shivered and seated myself more firmly upon the machine.

scream - चीखना, चिल्लाना, ज़बर्दस्त मज़ाक, ठहाका

butterfly - तितली

slanting - दृष्टिकोण, तिरछा करना, तिरछा करना

Looking round me again, I saw that, quite near, what I had taken to be a reddish mass of rock was moving slowly towards me. Then I saw the thing was really a monstrous crab-like creature.

Crab - केकड़ा

Can you imagine a crab as large as yonder table, with its many legs moving slowly and uncertainly, its big claws swaying, its long antennae, like carters'whips, waving and feeling, and its stalked eyes gleaming at you on either side of its metallic front? Its back was corrugated and ornamented with ungainly bosses, and a greenish incrustation blotched it here and there.

I could see the many palps of its complicated mouth flickering and feeling as it moved.

complicated - उलझाना, जटिल बनाना, जटिल बनाना

'As I stared at this sinister apparition crawling towards me, I felt a tickling on my cheek as though a fly had lighted there. I tried to brush it away with my hand, but in a moment it returned, and almost immediately came another by my ear. I struck at this, and caught something threadlike. It was drawn swiftly out of my hand.

apparition - प्रेतात्मा, विचित्र वस्तु, प्रेतछाया, प्रेत, विचित्र व्यक्ति

crawling - क्रॉलिंग, (crawl) क्रॉलिंग

With a frightful qualm, I turned, and I saw that I had grasped the antenna of another monster crab that stood just behind me. Its evil eyes were wriggling on their stalks, its mouth was all alive with appetite, and its vast ungainly claws, smeared with an algal slime, were descending upon me. In a moment my hand was on the lever, and I had placed a month between myself and these monsters.

But I was still on the same beach, and I saw them distinctly now as soon as I stopped. Dozens of them seemed to be crawling here and there, in the sombre light, among the foliated sheets of intense green.

dozens - दर्जन/बारह, दर्जन

'I cannot convey the sense of abominable desolation that hung over the world. The red eastern sky, the northward blackness, the salt Dead Sea, the stony beach crawling with these foul, slow-stirring monsters, the uniform poisonous-looking green of the lichenous plants, the thin air that hurts one's lungs: all contributed to an appalling effect.

desolation - निर्जनता, सूनापन, उजड़ापन, तनहाई

appalling - घटिया, भयंकर, (appal) घटिया

I moved on a hundred years, and there was the same red sun-a little larger, a little duller-the same dying sea, the same chill air, and the same crowd of earthy crustacea creeping in and out among the green weed and the red rocks. And in the westward sky, I saw a curved pale line like a vast new moon.

duller - मंदबुद्धि, नीरस, कम करना, निकालना, आलसी, हल्का, थोड़ा, अंधकारमय

earthy - अश्लील, मटियाला

crustacea - क्रस्टेशिया

'So I travelled, stopping ever and again, in great strides of a thousand years or more, drawn on by the mystery of the earth's fate, watching with a strange fascination the sun grow larger and duller in the westward sky, and the life of the old earth ebb away.

fascination - आकर्षण, मोह, सम्मोहन

ebb away - गायब हो जाना

At last, more than thirty million years hence, the huge red-hot dome of the sun had come to obscure nearly a tenth part of the darkling heavens. Then I stopped once more, for the crawling multitude of crabs had disappeared, and the red beach, save for its livid green liverworts and lichens, seemed lifeless. And now it was flecked with white. A bitter cold assailed me.

Rare white flakes ever and again came eddying down. To the north-eastward, the glare of snow lay under the starlight of the sable sky and I could see an undulating crest of hillocks pinkish white. There were fringes of ice along the sea margin, with drifting masses further out; but the main expanse of that salt ocean, all bloody under the eternal sunset, was still unfrozen.

sable - सेबल

fringes - किनारा, फुंदना, गौण गतिविधि, किनारी, किनारी लगाना, बालों की लट

unfrozen - निरवरोध करना, पिघलना, पिघलाना, नियन्त्रण हटाना, नियंत्रण हटाना

'I looked about me to see if any traces of animal life remained. A certain indefinable apprehension still kept me in the saddle of the machine. But I saw nothing moving, in earth or sky or sea. The green slime on the rocks alone testified that life was not extinct. A shallow sandbank had appeared in the sea and the water had receded from the beach.

animal life - जीवन जीवन

indefinable - अनिर्वचनीय, अवर्णनीय, अपरिभाष्य

sandbank - रेतीला तट, रेती/सैकत

I fancied I saw some black object flopping about upon this bank, but it became motionless as I looked at it, and I judged that my eye had been deceived, and that the black object was merely a rock. The stars in the sky were intensely bright and seemed to me to twinkle very little.

flopping - असफल होना, असफल, पूर्णतः असफल, असफल व्यक्ति, फड़फड़ाने की आवाज़

deceived - धोखा, धोखा देना, विश्वासघात करना, विश्वासघात करना

'Suddenly I noticed that the circular westward outline of the sun had changed; that a concavity, a bay, had appeared in the curve. I saw this grow larger. For a minute perhaps I stared aghast at this blackness that was creeping over the day, and then I realized that an eclipse was beginning. Either the moon or the planet Mercury was passing across the sun's disk.

outline - रूपरेखा, दर्शाना, खाका, सारांश, रूपरेखा आरेखित करना

concavity - नतोदरता, अवतलता

bay - खाड़ी

curve - चक्कर, घुमाव

aghast - डरपोक, हक्का बक्का, कातर, भयाक्रांत, भौँचक्का, गुमसुम

eclipse - ग्रहण

Naturally, at first I took it to be the moon, but there is much to incline me to believe that what I really saw was the transit of an inner planet passing very near to the earth.

Transit - संक्रमण

'The darkness grew apace; a cold wind began to blow in freshening gusts from the east, and the showering white flakes in the air increased in number. From the edge of the sea came a ripple and whisper. Beyond these lifeless sounds the world was silent. Silent? It would be hard to convey the stillness of it.

freshening - मदिरा को पतला करना, तेज़ होना, और भरना, ताजा होना, ताज़ा करना

gusts - झोंका, आनन्द, उमंग, आवेश, हवा का झोंका, लहर, आनंद, भावावेग

ripple - छोटी तरंग

whisper - फुसफुसाना

All the sounds of man, the bleating of sheep, the cries of birds, the hum of insects, the stir that makes the background of our lives-all that was over. As the darkness thickened, the eddying flakes grew more abundant, dancing before my eyes; and the cold of the air more intense. At last, one by one, swiftly, one after the other, the white peaks of the distant hills vanished into blackness.

bleating - ब्लीटिंग, (bleat) ब्लीटिंग

thickened - गाढ़ा करना, गाढ़ा होना

peaks - चोटी, अधिकतम, चोटी पर पहुँचना, टोपी का किनारा, टोपी का किनारा

The breeze rose to a moaning wind. I saw the black central shadow of the eclipse sweeping towards me. In another moment the pale stars alone were visible. All else was rayless obscurity. The sky was absolutely black.

'A horror of this great darkness came on me. The cold, that smote to my marrow, and the pain I felt in breathing, overcame me. I shivered, and a deadly nausea seized me. Then like a red-hot bow in the sky appeared the edge of the sun. I got off the machine to recover myself. I felt giddy and incapable of facing the return journey.

marrow - मज्जा

overcame - हराना, पराजित करना, वशीभूत कर लेना, काबु पाना, क़ाबू पाना

bow - झुकना, झुकाना
