Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow.

1 If you should walk about in Kampung Sungai Mas, Kedah, after a


downpour, do not be surprised if you come across colourful beads
on the ground.

2 After all, more than 76,000 ancient beads have been found in the
village located about 20 km from Sungai Petani, Kedah. In fact, 5
the villagers have been collecting these beads in the compounds
of their homes for more than 20 years.

3 Among them is Harun Ismail, 63, who has collected enough


beads to fill several jars. He still has a few jars of coloured beads
which he has painstakingly soaked, polished and strung into 10
beadwork like bracelets and necklaces.

4 The other jars were handed over to the Sungai Mas Archaeology
Museum located in the village about five years ago for a token
sum of cash.

5 Between 1991 and 2000, extensive excavations were carried out 15


by the Museum and Antiquities Department’s archaeological
division during which many beads were collected and studied.

6 These are ancient Indo-Pacific beads which were apparently left


behind by an early civilisation in the area some 1500 years ago.

7 Discovery of ancient items including laterite and brick structures 20


from China, India and the Middle East proved that Kampung
Sungai Mas used to be a port for international trade between the
fifth and eleventh centuries.

8 The beads were used as barter items to exchange for goods and
products by traders from the southeast coast of India who called 25
at the port in those days.

9 “We have been collecting the manik (beads) which could be found
in everyone’s compound for years but we had no idea they are
valuable ancient beads until they (the authorities) told us,” Harun
grinned. 30

10 “The beads have been embedded in the ground for hundreds of


years because of the colours, they can be easily spotted when
they are exposed after the ground has been exposed by
raindrops,” he said.

11 Museum and Antiquities Department’s archaeology division 35


director Kamaruddin Zakaria said the little beads were similar to
what were now known as “seed beads” sewn or woven on cloth or
strung on strands.

12 “This small Indo-Pacific beads are found in various parts of the


world from Ghana to China, Bali to Mali and South Africa to South 40
Korea.

“For more than 2000 years, they were traded all over the globe
13
and deserved the title of Champion Trade Beads,” said
Kamaruddin whose field of study includes ancient beads.
14 45
He said the beads were first made in a port city on the southeast
coast of India known today as Arikamedu. In time, some of the
bead makers left to expand their trade.
15
From the first century A.D. until around 1200, some bead makers
were living in Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and Sri Lanka.
16 50
Production was so enormous that the Indo-Pacific beads
accounted for two-thirds of the beads excavated in archaeological
sites in the Philippines.
17
Slowly, the industries outside India closed down but the bead
makers stayed at Arikamedu until the 1600s when they moved to 55
a village not too far north called Papanaidupet.
18
They are still making the beads, including some of the smallest in
the world.

The Road Not Taken

Two road diverged in a yellow wood,


And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,


And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay


In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh


Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I –
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
