Whatever the situation is you all are required to read the complete book. Upon reading you are required to respond to the following:
1 Few lines about the author and also explain the title

This carries a weightage of 10% in your internal component.

Be thorough with the content of the book as questions might be asked in any of the sessions. Also do not copy paste the stuff either from your friends or from any other source. The entire writing has to be in your own words.

Jonathan Livingston Seagull tells the story of a young seagull with big ambitions. Jonathan Seagull pushes himself to fly at tremendous speeds, eventually reaching a higher plane of perfection. Later, he returns to his flock to teach the ambitious among them what he knows.

In Part I, Jonathan defies his parents and spends all his time practicing flying. He repudiates their belief that a seagull's sole purpose is to eat and instead studies the mechanics of flight. He's banished because of this.

In Part II, Jonathan reaches a higher plane of existence, where he studies with the elder gull Chiang, who teaches him the secrets to "perfect speed."

In Part III, Jonathan returns to his flock to teach them what he has learned.
