English_Master March 31, 2016 No Comments
YOUTH -POWERHOUSE OF SOCIETY The youth in any country form an important part of the machinery that shapes the destiny of a country. It is they who may help to bring about a desirable change in society History have many examples of the contribution of youth towards progress and upliftment of their countries. The youth of India were greatly instrumental in bringing about the independence movement in the country. Gandhiji, Nehruji and other national leaders depended heavily on the youth of India to help achieve the goal of Swaraj. In our own country half of the population constitutes youth and their vast energies and enthusiasm must not go untapped. They should be utilized for social, political, cultural or economic reconstruction. If their energies are not used, they can go astray; get involved in undesirable and antisocial affairs, thus damaging the very fabric of society. As far as possible they should be encouraged to get involved in the present task of reconstructing India. The youth should be educated at schools, colleges and universities in creating a society that is free of the evils of dowry, child marriage, caste and race prejudices. Many organizations are busy in eradicating these evils, but then the task can become easier if the youth are...

THE GAME I LIKE THE BEST: Essay Writing Topics

English_Master March 31, 2016 No Comments
THE GAME I LIKE THE BEST Games play an important part in our life. In reality they form part and parcel of our school curriculum. They provide physical stamina to the students. I like many games like football, volleyball, tennis, cricket and hockey. Cricket is my favourite game. It is the game I like the most. It is an international game and is quite often shown on television. Many cricket teams come from abroad to play matches in India and the Indian teams go abroad to play against foreign countries. The most important cricket playing nations are England, Australia, West Indies, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and South Africa.

My only ambition in life is to become a great cricketer. Once I become a...

THE FEAR OF EXAMINATIONS

English_Master March 31, 2016 No Comments
THE FEAR OF EXAMINATIONS Examinations are formidable even to the best prepared. It is because the greatest fool may ask more than the wisest man can answer. The fear of examinations saps the examinees’ courage. The bright as well as the weak examinees generally tremble with the unexpected fear on the night before the examination. The night before the examination is a test of the examinees’ fortitude and endurance. They prepare the selected questions holding their breath. The brilliant ones are apprehensive of possible poor performance which will ruin their academic career. The best prepared are frightened to imagine in the forthcoming question paper a few questions they will not be able to answer to their satisfaction. They want to prepare all questions and leave nothing to chance. What will happen if they leave out some questions and those very questions prop up their heads in the question paper? Even the mighty students become weak when they think of the possible tragedy that may befall them. Uncertainty of the result upsets brilliant student and the idea of failure makes nervous the poor ones. The average students are the luckiest among all. They are neither ambitious nor nervous. They take examinations as a matter of fun. They neither weeps if...

THE CHILD IS THE FATHER OF MAN: Short Essay

English_Master March 31, 2016 No Comments
THE CHILD IS THE FATHER OF MAN This Wordsworth statement perhaps means that the qualities exhibited by a child will deepen and appear in a marked form when the child grows up into a man. By observing and studying the behaviour, the inclinations, the preferences, the prejudices and the tendencies of child we can form an idea as to what sort of man he will develop into. One’s childhood, therefore, may be taken as forming the basis of one’s manhood. It is in this sense that the child has been called the father of man. The statement carries much sense. The biographies of several great men show that their character and achievements had appeared in their early childhood. An average child with no remarkable qualities will rarely develop into a remarkable man but a child with striking qualities will grow into one. Napoleon in his childhood used to ‘play’ fighting and had great enthusiasm for mock-warfare. Later on, as everyone knows, he distinguished himself as one of the greatest military geniuses of the world. His childhood, therefore, showed unmistakable signs of the direction his mind subsequently took. Similarly, David Lingstone used to play exploring when he was still a boy. Eventually he became one of the greatest explorers of...

PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN SWORD: Essay Writing

English_Master March 31, 2016 No Comments
PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN SWORD There is a famous saying that the role of pen is mightier than that of the sword. But unfortunately there are people who believe that the use of force is necessary. The pen expresses a personal or public opinion. It stands for the press, literature, newspapers, books, and other writings. The purpose of all writing is to connect one’s mind with another, to persuade the reader to take up the view which the writer holds on a particular subject. The reader has the right to hold his own view; he may not be convinced of the writer’s judgment and opinions presented to him. We may, therefore, say that the pen stands for the peaceful means by which a person is persuaded to accept the views which the writer holds. No force is used to persuade the reader, but a good and forceful writer forms opinion. But the sword, on the other hand, stands for force. It forces views on others. If they do not accept those views they must be challenged. The sword, therefore, implies force, not reason. The pen is thus preferred of the two. But the sword has its own uses. In the world, there exists not only a good, sincere, honest...

MY MOST INTERESTING DREAM: Short Essay

English_Master March 31, 2016 No Comments
MY MOST INTERESTING DREAM We all have dreams. We are dreaming most of the nights. But these dreams are not clear to us. We soon forget them and remember nothing when the day breaks. Now and then we have a dream which is so clear that it becomes like a cinematographic picture on the screen of our imagination. We remember the dream forever and forever as if it were something that actually happened to us. I had one such dream just one night just before a child was expected to be born in our family. I saw that I was visiting an old stone house in Shimla or some mountainous country. There lived an English couple in that house and they had a small baby who was very beautiful. There came a snake charmer with a basket of snakes. He played upon his pipe so that the snakes came out of the basket. They danced and played with the child quite harmlessly. The boy was very beautiful, always laughing, always chattering. He would print a long kiss on the face of the person who said to him, “Master Printer, print a line”. His name was Master Printer and his job was to print a kiss on the face of...

Essay about DICTATORSHIP VS DEMOCRACY

English_Master March 31, 2016 No Comments
DICTATORSHIP VS DEMOCRACY Democracy in any country means the rule by elected representatives. It has been defined as the government “of the people, by the people, for the people.” Democracy rests on the principle of representation. The people elect their representatives by vote in an election. These representatives attend the legislature and act on behalf of the citizens. If the citizens are not satisfied with their representatives, they may not re-elect them in the next elections. Democracy is said to be a better form of government. It is the government of the people as distinguished from the government of an individual or of a class of people. It makes all the citizens interested in the affairs of the country by sending their representatives in legislatures. Democracy is also a safeguard against revolution. Since people themselves elect the members of government, the need for a revolution does not arise. A democratic government guarantees freedom of thought, action and speech. This freedom has advantage as it enables the individual to grow freely. Democracy thus offers favourable atmosphere for development of human personality. But democracy has its weaknesses, the greatest of which is that it may be the rule of ignorant. “Nine people out of every ten”, says Carlyle, “are fools”, and...

CRICKET POPULAR WORLD OVER: Essay Topics

English_Master March 31, 2016 No Comments
CRICKET POPULAR WORLD OVER The game of cricket started in England first, but now it is played all over the globe and is very popular. The game became very popular by the 18th century and a London club was formed in 1700. The Hambledon Club started in 1750 and at its ground, at Broachalf Penny Down, country cricket originated. Thomas Lord started a ground in Dorset Square in 1787 which was moved to St. John’s Wood in 1814, and became the headquarters of the Marylebone Cricket Club (M.C.C.), the ruling authority of the game. Gentlemen vs. Players, Oxford vs. Cambridge, and Eton vs. Harrow matches started about this time, and cricket took its present form. Cricket has achieved great popularity as can be seen from the jam packed stadia all over the world. There is always a clamor for tickets and yet many do not get any chance to enter The game is played mainly in the countries of the Commonwealth-Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, the West Indies, Pakistan and India. An England team paid first visit to Australia in 1876. Four years later an Australian Eleven paid a return visit to England and that tour was really the inauguration of what is called “Test match cricket.” The struggle...

COWARDS DIE MANY DEATH: Essay

English_Master March 31, 2016 No Comments
COWARDS DIE MANY DEATH This was said in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. It is a part of a speech by Caesar in reply to Calpurnia who warned that he should not go out as evil omens point to some danger to his life. Caesar refuses to agree and declares that death has no terror for him. He rises above cowardice and ignores the dangers. The world “fear”, he says, does not exist in his vocabulary. He throws a challenge at death and refuses to be frightened by it. He could never have been a greater soldier if he had fear of death. Death is inevitable. Nobody has ever conquered death. Death comes to all-kings and beggars, rich and poor, princes in their places and paupers in their huts. Death lays its hand upon all creatures. It does so without distinction or discrimination. Knowing the omnipotence of death, it is a folly for a man to tremble with fear at the thought of it. It shows an utter lack of spirit to turn pale at the mention of death. It is extreme cowardice to shirk from the dangers of life and a mark of bravery to face them. Constant fear haunts a coward. His heart sinks for fear of death which...

FLOODS AND FAMINES: Essay Writing

English_Master March 30, 2016 No Comments
FLOODS AND FAMINES Floods and Famines are natural calamities and a common feature of Indian life. Our food depends on the Rain God and monsoons are very tricky. Sometimes we get too much of rain and sometimes we get no rain at all. When we get no rain, crops cannot grow in large parts of India i.e. Famine takes place and when we get rain in cats and dogs, our crops are destroyed by torrential rains or washed away by the rivers in floods. In either case our nation suffers. Our farmers pray fervently for normal rains-neither too much nor too little. Floods are caused by three factors: Crowd burst Monsoon depression and Tropical cyclones. Of late deforestation and soil erosion are also causing floods. India depends for its rain a both the monsoons—South western and North-Eastern. It is not possible to control the monsoon by any scientific means. All our knowledge falls flat here. No scientist of the world can so manage the atmosphere to get the right quantity of rain at right time of the year. Rain can be produced artificially but the cost is heavy. Therefore, we have to depend on the Rain God, Indra for our food production every year and people pray with folded...

Essay Writing Topics about DISCIPLINE

English_Master March 30, 2016 No Comments
DISCIPLINE “For the intrepid youth, who present themselves at this new dawn of history, there are other words which move them more deeply; these words are: Order, Hierarchy, and Discipline”. Discipline is the most important sector in democracy. Where there is no discipline, democracy cannot long survive. Sooner or later it will wither away. Indiscipline and democracy cannot go together. Indiscipline invites mobocracy, dictatorship and foreign invasions. Discipline is very necessary in the home, in the school and in the country. While entering a bus or getting our railway ticket or getting our rations or getting any other work done, where there are many others standing for the same work, we have to form a queue, such as while paying your bills or buying postage stamps in the post office. If we do not observe this discipline, then freedom is lost and we become the slaves of a dictator or a foreign invader. “Discipline” is a ten-lettered word but it plays a great role in the maintenance of civil and national liberties. Without discipline no nation can really be free. Discipline contains its most precious meaning in those ten letters because often it is a matter of life and death for an independent nation. With discipline you have the free...

DOWRY SYSTEM:Essay

English_Master March 30, 2016 No Comments
DOWRY SYSTEM Dowry System has been prevalent in India since ages. In the Vedic age dowry was used as a means for attracting a good boy. During epic age dowry too was in practice though its concept had by then changed. At that time dowry was not claimed as a matter of right but was given at the will of parents. They gave dowry according to their will and their wealth. It was a kind of help given to the newly married couple but now-a-days it has become an integral part of the marriage institution and is generally accepted as an evil by the society. Many thinkers have tried to eradicate this system but all their efforts have gone in vain. This fashion of dowry has got to roof so much that today the birth of a female child is considered to be bad for the parents. It befalls like a punishment of many thousands of rupees on the parents to whom a female takes birth. Thus it is the female who has been becoming the victim of the Ill-conceived social customs of the society. It is the poor section of the society which has to suffer the most. The priests who had established these customs for their own...

HOW TO GROW OLD GRACEFULLY: Short Essay

English_Master March 30, 2016 No Comments
HOW TO GROW OLD GRACEFULLY Old and young are on the same high seas of life. We sail in leaky boats. Youth is no guarantee of long life. Old men may live longer than the young. Therefore, the young should respect the old and the old should guide the youth to sail over dangerous waters of life. Old age is a friend who comes to meet us. “After the sun is down and the west faded, says Stevenson, the heavens begin to fill with shining stars.” So we grow old. It is an equable jog-trot of life. The violent ups and down of youth is behind us. If the pleasures are small, troubles are also smaller. Old age in its own right is the richest, the easiest and the happiest period of life, if we keep good health and manages ourselves well, cutting our coat according to the cloth. “Nay, by managing its own work and following its own happy inspiration, youth is doing the best it can to endow the leisure of age.” If youth is not quite right, old age is also not quite right. If youth is wrong, old age is also wrong. In order to be right in the end, you must be right at...

IMPORTANCE OF GAMES IN LIFE: Essay Writing

English_Master March 30, 2016 No Comments
IMPORTANCE OF GAMES IN LIFE Games and sports are great builders of health and character. They determine our careers and the course of history. Lord Wellington rightly said, “I won the Battle of Waterloo on the cricket field of Eton.” It was in the School at Eton that he learnt to play cricket and this finally enabled him to win the great battle against Napoleon. Games and sports help in the building of a harmonious all-round personality. Those who play no games have a stunted growth and personality. Education without games is a one-sided affair. Mere mental and moral development is not enough. Physical development is as important as mental growth. Games are sports help us in the development of the body as well as of the mind.
