The famous diamond

A. The Kohinoor has been one of the most famous diamonds in human history. The diamond’s name is derived from the Persian word ‘Koh-i-Noor’ which means the mountain of light. Its quality and size make it one of the most desirable precious stones. The Kohinoor’s ownership has always been a topic of controversy. The stone was found in one of the south-eastern coastal regions of India, in the 13th century. From that time, it had fallen into the hands of many rulers. The diamond was originally 793 carats when uncut, which makes it the biggest diamond in the world. King Malhlak Deo, who was a ruler of Malwa, a historical region of India, was the first owner of this precious diamond.

B. In 1739 Nader Shah came to India and took over the throne. A few years later Nader Shah was killed. After decades of fighting, in 1813, the diamond came into the hands of the Indian Prince - Ranjit Singh, who was very fond of precious stones in general. The proud owner, Ranjit Singh, wore the Kohinoor diamond in a bracelet above his elbow and owned it for several years. However, when the British defeated him in 1849, the precious diamond Kohinoor was immediately taken to Britain.

C. By that time, it had already become the most famous diamond. In July 1850 the East India Company, also called English East India Company, presented it to the Queen of England. The value of the diamond is unknown, but it is said to have been worth 200 million dollars half a century ago. It was always stolen or exchanged for other things, but never sold. It’s a popular belief that the Kohinoor is cursed. The curse* of the Kohinoor Diamond dates back to the stone’s first appearance in public in 1306.

D.The history and lives of the rulers who owned the Kohinoor diamond were filled with violence, murders and treachery. Whether or not people believe in the curse of the Kohinoor Diamond, the history of the stone is undeniable – and the threat of the Kohinoor curse is enough to make people careful. The British Royal family was obviously aware of the curse of the Kohinoor, which said: ‘He who owns this diamond will own the world, but will also know all its misfortunes.’ So, ever since the reign of Queen Victoria, when the Kohinoor diamond came into their possession, it has always gone to the wife of the male heir to the British throne.

E. The diamond was exhibited at St James’s Palace in London on the 250th anniversary of the East India Company. In 1852, under the supervision of the prince consort Albert, it was cut into an oval to improve its brilliance and dropped from 186 carats to its current weight of 108 carats. It was then placed on a crown with more than two thousand other diamonds. In 1957 the stone was set in the crown of the new queen Elizabeth II.

F. The Kohinoor Crown was last seen in public in 2002, when it was placed on top of The Queen Mother’s casket at her funeral. Meanwhile, the Indian government has been demanding the diamond’s return almost the entire time the stone has been in British hands. India entered a formal complaint after gaining independence firstly in 1947 and for the second time in 1953 upon Elizabeth II’s coronation. The governments of Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan have made similar claims. However, no optimistic results are expected.

Task 3:Read the text and the questions which follow. For each question mark the correct answer (A, B, C or D). (8 points)

This is a true story told by a Scottish singer Susan Boyle who appeared on the British television talent show Britain’s Got Talent in 2009.

‘I grew up in Blackburn, a small Scottish industrial town. I was the youngest of nine children in the family. Because of certain complications I was born with mild brain damage. Later, when I was at school, I was diagnosed with learning disabilities and because of this I was frequently bullied. Luckily for me, I got interested in music and singing as a young child and at the age of twelve I began participating in musical productions at school. My teachers believed I was talented and encouraged me to continue singing. After graduating from high school, I briefly attended cooking classes at West Lothian College before beginning studies at the Edinburgh Acting School. Meanwhile, I still continued to work on my voice, I regularly sang in the local church choir, at local karaoke bars, and even at the Edinburgh Festival organised by the Festival Society. I always tried my best to achieve success. I remember in 1995 I had an unsuccessful audition for the British TV talent show known as My Kind of People. However, I tried not to give up and four years later, in 1999, my version of the song Cry Me a River, which was recorded and included on CD, received positive reviews. Inspired by this, I consequently used all my savings to record a professional tape, which I immediately mailed to record companies, radio and TV networks and various talent competitions. Unfortunately, my career ambitions were put on hold in 2000 after the death of my sister. I was able to continue with professional singing lessons only two years later, in 2002 and afterwards produced several recordings for local performances. But all these attempts only brought me some local fame. In 2007 another tragedy happened in my life. I was devastated with the death of my mother and completely withdrew from singing for nearly another two years. In late 2008, however, I applied to audition for Britain’s Got Talent to honour the memory of my mother, who had been a fan of the show and had encouraged me to become a contestant. Finally, in April 2009 I appeared on an episode of the show and I was happy to notice that my version of the song I Dreamed a Dream from the musical, Les Misérables, immediately silenced both the judges and the audience, earning me a standing ovation. Videos of my debut on the show were viewed on the Internet by almost 100 million people worldwide; I got second place in the final competition. I’m so proud that my first studio album, I Dreamed a Dream, debuted as number one on the Billboard Charts in November 2009 and was the second best-selling album of 2009, with more than 3.1 million copies sold. I’m so happy to say that my other albums, which soon followed, were also successful. I didn’t limit myself on producing albums only. In 2012, I Dreamed a Dream, a musical based on my life, toured the United Kingdom, with me occasionally acting in minor roles. The following year I made my acting debut in the film drama The Christmas Candle. I also had a memorable minor role in the comedy Zoolander 2 in 2016. And I felt lucky, happy and pleased that my autobiography, The Woman I Was Born to Be, was published in 2010. Now I intend to keep going at a steady pace, to continue making albums and making people happy.’
