A VISIT TO A CIRCUS My father is a man of modern ideas. He often lets me visit the cinemas, exhibition and circus. But I am very fond of circus shows than cinema or exhibition. The circus is of various types, but the circus which I saw last week at Parade Ground was the most impressive. In this circus were displayed the amazing feats of men, women and children. But the feats presented by animals and gymnasts were unforgettable. The Olympic Circus arrived in Parade Ground in Delhi a fortnight ago. Last Sunday my father permitted me to visit the circus show. Three of my friends and I reached the circus gate in time to see the evening show. The circus was to begin in a huge tent, which was decorated by colourful electric bulbs and tubes.

A MORNING WALK The proverb “Early to bed and early to rise” is well known and oft-repeated. It also reflects the wisdom and experience of life embodied in it. But only a few are there who are lucky to act according to this gem of saying. Unfortunately, I am a late riser because I go to sleep quite late.

Essay on OUR NATIONAL LANGUAGE

English_Master June 13, 2015 No Comments
OUR NATIONAL LANGUAGE Hindi is our national language and English has been retained as an Associate National Language, due to insistent and persistent demand from South India where the people in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Kerala, do not properly understand Hindi and they do not want that Hindi should be imposed on them, which in their misguided view in a language of the North and not of the South. In the beginning it was planned to retain English for ten years as lingua franca language used for general communication in the country but now it has been declared as an Associate National Language and is being retained indefinitely until Hindi becomes the true National Language. Hindi is indeed the National Language adopted by the Constituent Assembly soon after the achievement of independence in 1947. But millions in India still do not know Hindi. It is because it has been made difficult by the introduction of Sanskrit terms in it. The conception of Mahatma Gandhi and Subhash Chandra Bose of Hindi as a national language was that of Hindustani a mixture of Hindi and Urdu. But over the years Hindi has become very much sanskritized. Purshotttamlal Tandon, the U.P. leader, was responsible for this form of Hindi. Over...

English_Master June 10, 2015 No Comments
IF I WERE THE PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA To be the Prime Minister of a country is a matter of pride. He can wake or mar the country. I wish I were the Prime Minister of India so that I might serve my country in a most humble manner. The Prime Minister enjoys the highest place in the Government of India, next to the President of India. However, in reality it is the Prime Minister who does everything on the behalf of the President of India. It is, therefore, that I wish I could serve my country as Prime Minister. The Prime Minister serves the country self-lessly and with great devotion and sacrifice. The welfare of the country is always uppermost in his mind. He is always concerned about it. Day in and day out he thinks of the poor, down trodden masses of the country and wants to improve their lot quite earnestly. As a Prime Minister of India I would see that poverty vanishes from this land forever and people get atleast two square meals a day. I would also see that illiteracy is removed from the masses and all the people acquire the knowledge of three R’s. I would make education free for al upto middle...

IF I WERE A MILLIONAIRE If I were a millionaire, what shall I do with my millions? Of course, I cannot eat my gold! I can eat two meals a day like the poorest of human beings. I will use this money to bring an end to the money-minded civilization. Money has become a great problem. Nobody thinks of the work he can do. Everybody thinks of the money, he can extract from the others. The first method to achieve my aim would be to form a small community where people would work together for the good of all without thinking of the individual. Everybody would devote himself t the general good. Money would have a secondary position in its thinking, living and doing. It might be small community of say a hundred men, women and children. They would pool together all their resources-men, money and material. All money would be kept in a common fund which would create opportunities of employment, food, clothing, houses and entertainment for everybody. We should pool together our technical skills and other resources for the good of all. Production on a large scale is always cheaper and better. To this common effort I would give my millions.

English_Master June 6, 2015 No Comments
A ROBBERY IN RUNNING TRAIN Robberies or crimes are so frequent those days. I had a bitter experience of the same. Once I was going by Frontier Mail from Delhi to Amritsar. It was a cold night. The train was running at full speed. The tree, houses, poles, etc. were wheeling back. The stations were passing one after another. The train halted at only selected stations. Some persons were dozing, some were reading novels, magazines and newspaper, some of them were playing cards, some were discussing important political matters and burning questions of the day and some of them were gossiping and chatting. The train was now heading for the important station of Shahabad Markanda. All of a sudden I saw some persons quietly entering the compartment. They had rifles and sharp knives in their hands and had covered their faces with a cloth. One of the dacoits ordered the passengers to raise their hands up or would be shot dead. The faces of all passengers turned pale and without uttering a word, all raised their hands. The dacoits took whatever they could and snatched from whoever resisted. The women and children were crying but the dacoits turned a deaf ear to their cries and shrieks. One of the...

The battle was fought at kurukshetra, now in the state of Haryana in India. It is situated between Delhi and Ambala. The city of Ambala is named after two sisters in Mahabharata, The Amba and Ambalika. Dhritrashtra, the father of the Kurus was blind. Therefore, eldest son Duryodhan directed the war on his behalf. The Pandavas were led by Yudhishtra, the eldest of the brothers, but Arjuna was the real hero of the war. When the battle was about to begin, Arjuna was not...
