OUR NATIONAL SYMBOLS—HOW WELL DO WE KNOW THEM?: Essay Topics

English_Master December 12, 2015 No Comments
OUR NATIONAL SYMBOLS—HOW WELL DO WE KNOW THEM? In an interview of several politicians—ML As, MPs and also some ministers and government executives, by a reporter of a private television channel, a few days before the independence day, revealed that many of them did not know our National Anthem and National Song. A few who knew the difference could not sing more than the first few lines of the songs. There could be nothing more shameful and sad than not to know the symbols and identity of Independent India. Four of our National Symbols—The National Anthem, National Song, National Flag and National Emblems are the symbols of our national pride. They are deeply embedded in our rich heritage and culture, and history of our freedom struggle. It is, therefore, the sacred duty of every citizen of India to know about them, understand the depth o their meanings and hold them in highest respect and close to their hearts. Let us first take up the song — “Vande Mataram” — meaning salute to the Motherland. This National song was written by Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay, one of the greatest nineteenth century writers of Bengal. The song was written by Bankim Babu as a prayer, when the British were trying to foist...

ROLE OF THE STUDENTS IN DEMOCRACY ESSAY WRITING

English_Master December 27, 2014 No Comments
ROLE OF THE STUDENTS IN DEMOCRACY Demos is a Greek word for the people. Thus democracy is a government of the people. Students form a considerable part of the population of a country. Students symbolizes the youth of the nation. There has been a trend among the teachers and parents to advise students to remain away from politics. It is a partial view. If the young students do not share their responsibility it will fall on the decaying shoulders of the older generation. The older generation has its limitations. It succumbs to pressures and stands for status quo. Both of these go against the interests of the nation. It may remain under the sway of undesirable elements within the nation or surrender before the wishes of the progressive nations. Democracy is not a stale affair like monarchy, nor is it a reign of terror like a dictatorship. It is poles apart from extreme socialism that reduces man to nothing before the authority of the state. Democracy stands for permanent everlasting ripples in the body politic of the nation. It requires active watchfulness. A little of slumber may reduce it to a play thing of a dictator. Selfish over enthusiasm may give birth to indiscipline reducing democracy to anarchy. It...

RIVER WATER POLLUTION IN INDIA

Essay Topics on RIVER WATER POLLUTION IN INDIA

English_Master December 27, 2014 No Comments
RIVER WATER POLLUTION IN INDIA Holy rivers have rather become a myth today. According to a report of the National Environment Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) all the fourteen big rivers of India are badly polluted. They cover 85 per cent of the surface flow of water in the country. The main pollutant of river water is industrial waste. River Jamuna in Delhi receives 6000kg of dissolved solids, 3000 kg of heavy metals and 200 kg of detergents every day. In its 48 km stretch around Delhi Yamuna gets polluted through 17 drains that bring   toxics, acids and a number of chemicals that affect the health of the river and consequently of all those who depend on it for drinking and bathing water. The Ganga starts getting polluted by chemicals from Rishikesh itself. It receives effluents from the Indian Drug and Pharmaceuticals Ltd (IDPL) and Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd. (BHEL). The flow of toxic effluents including chemicals metallurgy and fertilizers to river periyar in Kerala is so great that the people living on its banks have a high incidence of skin diseases. Cauvery and Kapila in Karnataka are so polluted that in stretch of 10 km of the banks of Cauvery people suffer badly from skin diseases, boils and burning...

Essay Writing on RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE

English_Master December 27, 2014 No Comments
RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE Religious toleration is when people allow other people to think about god(s) in ways that they do not think are true. They tolerate religious beliefs and practices which are different from their own beliefs or lack of beliefs. Religious tolerance is the backbone of a cultural and civilized society or nation. It is ingrained in the Indian psyche. A number of invaders came to India specially the Shaks and Huns. They were so perfectly assimilated in the Indian society that today no one knows if he is not a decedent of one of these. Whatever their religion was it also got dissolved in the waste humanity of India. After the uprising of Islam in the Middle East people belonging to the Zoroastrian religion and nation and those belonging to the Syrian church came to India to save themselves from those who believed in Islam. Similarly “we have “, according to Swami Vivekananda “gathered in our bosom the purest remnant of the Israelites who came to Southern India and took refuge with us in the very year in which their holy temple was shattered to pieces by Roman tyranny.”On 11 of September 1893 Swami Vivekananda declared in the Parliament of Religions held in Chicago he said, “I am...

Importance of Religion In India

Importance Of Religion : Essay Writing Topics

English_Master December 27, 2014 No Comments
RELIGION IS NECESSARY Karl Marx called religion as the opium of the people. He thought that religion numbs the sensitivity of the people. The people, then, become a tool in the hands of the clerics. Ultimately they become a tool in the hands of the rulers- the Kings. The religious preachers and the Kings support each other and treat the common man as sheep and goats. It is a very vicious view. Because of this view of Marx all the communist countries of Eastern Europe and many others became anti-religious after the Russian Revolution against the Czar. How natural is religion to man was proved immediately after the fall of communism in Russia and the East European countries. The forefathers of most of the people were Christians. The forefathers of the five central republics were Muslims. All these people immediately started going to Churches. And Mosques. Even after the strict control of Stalin and Brezhnev their faith in religion remained in fact in a dormant state. Like the hibernation of the Siberian bear it came to life again and flourished. In India religious teachings started from home in the past. The students would collect for prayer before the teaching started. Moral teachings were imparted to the boys and girls...

PROHIBITION IN INDIA: ESSAY WRITING TOPICS

English_Master December 27, 2014 No Comments
PROHIBITION IN INDIA Healthy food and drinks bring a point of satisfaction. But intoxication has a reverse effect. The more one drinks the more concentrated doses he requires. Indigenous wine sold under government contracts gives more satisfaction to the poor heavy drunkards who cannot otherwise afford the sophisticated rum or whisky. A festive occasion requires a still heavier dose. The wine prepared from methylated spirit is sold openly throughout the country under different names and clandestinely without a name. There are many in the country who dies without any record anywhere. Besides these deaths by spurious wine otherwise too the so called quality wines eat a man slowly but surely. Drinking results in a number of incurable diseases pertaining to liver, kidney, stomach and lungs. Moreover, a drunkard is more prone to sex. It has resulted in a large number of prostitution markets in the areas where drinking is more of a rule than an exception. AIDS, that killer disease is an accompaniment of sex in the modern world. The first six cases of the fatal disease were found in the brothels of Chennai. The hunger for sex among the drunkards has resulted in the development of flesh trade. Elopement of girls of different ages has become a regular...

PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION IN SCHOOLS : ESSAY TOPICS

English_Master December 25, 2014 No Comments
PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION IN SCHOOLS The education system introduced by Lord Macaulay is deeply rooted in the Indian psyche. The Britishers introduced a system that would provide them clerks and officers to run their government. Formal education in Arts becomes popular. A degree would provide a job. It used to be a government job. It was something like a morsel thrown by the master. But as the vision widened people started thinking of something else too. Moreover the government could not provide jobs to all who had academic qualifications. The first to think over it was Mahatma Gandhi. He gave the task to Dr.Zakir Hussain. The scheme was drawn and an experiment was done by Wardha. Even the British authorities were impressed by the scheme. It was introduced in the primary section in many states. The children would make clay model, wooden toys, draw paintings and do a little of kitchen farming too. This all proved a farce. The toys and models were prepared by others and showed against the names of students. Moreover parents in cities did not like their children coming back from school in dirty clothes. The ideal of learning handicrafts did not pick up. The educationalists fell back on the formal education. With the rise in...

Essay on The Ozone Layer Depletion and Its Effects

Essay on The Ozone Layer Depletion and Its Effects

English_Master October 9, 2014 No Comments
ESSAY ON POLLUTION AND OZONE LAYER Ozone is a condensed form of Oxygen. It has three atoms of Oxygen instead of two and has a faint blue color with pungent odor.In industries it is used in deodorization, oxidation and bleaching and it is generated by a silent electric discharge in ordinary Oxygen. Thus it is useful in this way. It is very useful in saving life from sun radiation. It actually forms an umbrella over the earth. It is concentrated generally 30 km above the surface of earth. It is generated there by the interaction of high radiation of the sun on the oxygen in the atmosphere. Its concentration is only 10 ppm parts of air. Still it stops sun radiation to penetrate the earth. If there is a pollution of ozone i.e. if the ozone layer is disturbed the sun radiation would attack human life, animal and plant life. The ultra violet rays would eat all life on earth. A one percent reduction of ozone layer would mean 4 to 8 per cent increase of skin cancer among people having light colored skin. With an increase of 22 per cent cancer among men and 17 per cent women in Australia the Northern America was rather awake. Research in...

SHORT ESSAY WRITING ON WORLD PEACE

English_Master October 9, 2014 No Comments
SHORT ESSAY WRITING ON WORLD PEACE PEACE IN THE WORLD History is a record of wars. Peace is still a dream. People talk of peace but prepare for war. Almost all the countries have been raising their defense budgets. With the fall of Soviet empire, cold war is over. But the fall of Communism has seen disintegration of many countries. World wars have been replaced by small ones. They are uglier still. The world wars were fought for a number of years. These small wars may continue for years together. The nation of Islamic brotherhood has been falsified by a number of wars between Islamic nations. Iran-Iraq, Iraq-Kuwait and the furious war continuing among three groups in Afghanistan have rendered lakhs of people dead. The trouble in Bosnia and Palestine seems unending. The African tribes never see eye to eye. Millions have recently died in South Africa. It seems that the main business of some of the Middle East and Asian Islamic countries and the tribes of many African countries is to have wars on big or small scale. After the partition of India in 1947 India has been making progress in the field of industries. Pakistan too has been. But there the main industry is the manufacture of...

AN ARTICLE ABOUT LESSONS FROM HISTORY

English_Master October 5, 2014 No Comments
LESSONS FROM HISTORY People have a very short memory. In the course of time they forget even those incidents that were most injurious to the society. That is why it is said that history repeats itself. A historian keeps a record of all the good and evil deeds of persons and groups in the society. We have to have lessons from it. History tells us how Britishers landed on the shores of India as businessmen and how they gradually became the rulers of the country. We should learn a lesson from it and should not allow the multinationals a free hand in the economy of the country. They may again have evil designs and dominate us politically too. If we do not learn this lesson our political fate is also doomed. We may become slaves of the foreigners again. India has to learn a great lesson from the prolonged history of partition in this country in 1946-47. Do we require a Jagmohan to remind us about the activities of the Muslim fundamentalist in Kashmir. It is just an extension of what happened during and before partition. The government as well as the people should learn a lesson from the history that tells us how the Muslims in1946 raised slogans...

Short Essay on INDIA IN SPACE

English_Master August 12, 2014 No Comments
INDIA IN SPACE – Essay Writing Many countries have been trying to establish their superiority in the space. Some want at least their presence felt. The history of space programmes of the progressive countries has been a Chequered one. It has been rather a part of the cold war between two big powers – the erstwhile USSR and USA. The space becomes a store house of the nuclear arsenal of the west. With the disintegration of the former USSR the things have changed everywhere. India’s concern for peaceful ventures in the space has become relevant. For the common man in this country space is associated with the name of Sq.Ldr.Rakesh Sharma, the only Indian so far to visit the space abroad Soyuz T-11 of Soviet Union on April 5, 1984.It was a short journey fulfilling the ambition of India to have an astronaut. It was actually no achievement for India – a mere lift given by a space traveler to an Indian too. India has not yet enjoyed the luxury of having a space ship of her own. We cannot afford the high cost. Moreover it has no utility for a country that has been in favor of programmes for peace. Indian scientists and state man did not want...

Essay on Indian democracy

FUTURE OF DEMOCRACY IN INDIA

English_Master August 6, 2014 No Comments
FUTURE OF DEMOCRACY IN INDIA Since the split in Congress in1969 the socio- political conditions in the country have been undergoing a steep fall. There is an abundance of good social legislation as may not be found in any democratic country in the world. But the common man just wonders whether he is meant to be the show piece in the sphere of history. The implementation of laws is almost nil in most of the parts of the country. If they are honestly implemented by a conscientious officer he has to do so at the risk of his transfer. The Parliament and State assemblies enact laws and pass them on to the administration not for their execution but for their non- execution. Educational people feel that the legislation is very good but the execution is bad. The poor illiterate or even the literate common man does not know anything about the legislation. He has to face a government officer, a representative or an official of the executive machinery who is seldom helpful. Thus he too abuses the executive right from the Prime Minister to peon in the Taluqa office. It is a black spot on the reputation of the executive head of the State. The experience of the people...

EXPLOITATION OF CHILDREN ESSAY TOPICS

English_Master July 30, 2014 No Comments
EXPLOITATION OF CHILDREN Looking on the condition of children living their parents in slums in metropolitan cities, or in the abodes of the poor or among the landless laborers in the rural areas one can guess the tragic fate of these buds that fade when they had to bloom. Most of the poor people in all castes and communities have a large number of children. It becomes rather obligatory for them to engage them in some remunerative work. In big cities and in smaller ones too one would find children between the age of four and twelve working in roadside restaurants and tea stalls. They hardly get rupee four of five a day-not sufficient even for their own meals. Many of them stay in the restaurant tenements during nights too and are sexually exploited. Children of the same age group work in match industry in Sivakasi, quarries in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, carpet industry in U.P, brassware industry in Moradabad. According to a UN study the number of such children in India was 113 million. They could not have the joys of childhood. Worse is the condition of the girl child. She has to start working in the household and the fields in the rural areas at the age...

ENTERING THE NEW MILLENNIUM ESSAY

English_Master July 26, 2014 No Comments
ENTERING THE NEW MILLENNIUM The new millennium has opened new vistas for India vis -a – vis the big powers in the world. The year 2000 saw two big powers extending their hands of friendship anew. In the bipolar world i.e. before the fall of communism in Russia India was closer to the USSR. The country was rather left to the centre. We had copied a number of things from Russian Administration. Five year planning was one of them. Nationalizing a large number of basic industries, banks, Insurance sector and starting financial set ups like Unit Trust of India was all on the Russian pattern. Steel, Heavy Engineering Plants, Coal, Petroleum products all were at the mercy of the Central government. Postal services, telegraph, telephone, railways, nuclear plants and dams were already, managed by the government. Even the declaration of glasnost and perestroika by the USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev in 1986 and further dissolution of communism in Russia did not bring any changes in India at the time as the government was still run on Nehruvian pattern. India was rather committed to Russia and had alienated itself from the USA. For a number of years Russia had a control over the governance of Afghanistan. The forces against Russia were...

SPEECH TOPICS ON LIFE WITHOUT ELECTRICITY

English_Master December 7, 2013 No Comments
ELECTRICITY IN THE SERVICE OF MAN One just can’t think of a world without electricity. It changes night into day in metropolitan cities in India and even small towns in the USA. We have multistoried buildings for officers and residence where electric light, heating system and cooling plants work day and night. It is only through electricity that it is possible. One is not expected to climb the stairs for eighty or even fifteen storey. The access is possible only through electricity run lift. They are an essential part of hospitals. The last decade of the 20th century is an age of man power through computers in Banks, Offices, Insurance companies and the maintenance of accounts everywhere. There are different types of electronic gadgets and sophisticated plants for production. All of them require electricity for their functioning. Video games are fast replacing the conventional indoor games. Almost all the sources of entertainment from a small radio set to huge carnivals requires electricity. Electricity serves man in two most important sectors- health and food. The farmer doesn’t wait for the rains now. He taps the underground water. Electricity comes to his aid and provides him with water any time of the year through tube-wells. Electricity helps the farmers in food...
