Essay Writing Topics about HEALTH: LET’S START FROM OUR CHILDREN

English_Master June 4, 2016 No Comments
HEALTH: LET’S START FROM OUR CHILDREN Human resources of a nation are its biggest capital and when we talk of human resources, we have to lay greater emphasis on moulding our young human resources, children. No nation can progress on any front by neglecting its children. Children are the nation’s future. A sizeable percentage of our population is children and we cannot afford to neglect them at any cost. Women and children constitute the most vulnerable sections of our society and they need the special care of the state. The health and nutrition of children is invariably linked to poverty; in other words, poverty deprives poor children of their right to survival, right to food and nutrition and proper medical care. Maharashtra is a comparatively progress State and around 160 km from India’s proud financial capital, Mumbai, is Thane district, a predominantly tribal belt with hilly terrain, poor soil, lack of irrigation and rampant unemployment, an ideal home of hundreds of severely malnourished children. As many as 1,100 children in the age-group 0-6 died in Thane district between April 2005 and March 2006. Government denies it, but the region has witnessed chronic malnutrition. The greatest disease of the region is poverty that spawns anemic mothers-to-be who give birth to...

Essay Topics about GUJARAT EARTHQUAKE

English_Master June 4, 2016 No Comments
GUJARAT EARTHQUAKE (26TH JAN. 2001): LASHING OF NATURE An Earthquake is a natural phenomenon and a calamity par excellence. Scientists believe that when the lava in the depths of the earth moves from one place to another, or twists, it causes the earth to shake, and we call it an earthquake. This movement can be mild and absolutely harmless and sometimes even not felt by most men. However, if the quake or tremor is strong it can be grave, causing grievous consequences to man, and his property. It is the magnitude of this shaking of the earth which enables us to understand the magnitude of the damage done. This is beauteous. The damage is in direct proportion to the speed of the movement of the earth. Scientists have this explanation to the occurrence of an earthquake but, philosophically and spiritually, it is believed by holy men that, this happens only when sin increases more than the earth can bear. There are several areas of the world that are prone to earthquakes and in these areas. India is also one. Within India the most earthquake prone areas are Gujarat, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and even Delhi. The latest in the line of occurrina earthquakes is the one that came in the...

Essay Writing about MEDIA AND SOCIETY

English_Master May 20, 2016 No Comments
MEDIA AND SOCIETY Reading or just going through the headlines of the one’s favourite newspaper is not only a habit but also second nature with most persons. Unlike the electronic media, especially the television that brings out news and views round the clock and yet half-succeeds to covert the viewers into its fans, the print media creates a rewarding relationship with its readers. From the individual reader to the society at large, print media performs multifaceted functions with remarkable reach and immense influence. If the television informs through the images, the newspaper enlighten through words. The print media enjoys a very special place in the collective consciousness of any civilized society. In the making of public opinion, print media has always played a robust role, and more significantly in those times when electronic media was nowhere in the sight. Since the media and the society are intrinsically and inextricably inter-linked with each other, a healthy balance between the two pillars of society is imperative, lest the one should dictate the other for very untenable reasons. If too much domination of the media, both electronic and print, is undesirable and uncalled for, it is equally unethical if the media becomes the slave of the society and cotters to its transitory...

Essay Topics about MEETING MINIMUM NEEDS OF THE PEOPLE

English_Master May 20, 2016 No Comments
MEETING MINIMUM NEEDS OF THE PEOPLE What are the minimum requirements of people to help them live like self-respecting human beings? In common parlance, we say roti, kapra aur makan. Though the minimum needs may cover more areas, even food, clothing and shelter may not be available to several lakhs of people. Merely saying that we have enough food stocks or we are self-sufficient in food will not fill hungry stomachs. Nobody can deny that there are starvation deaths here and there; add to this the millions of cases of child malnutrition and maternal malnutrition. Have we ever counted the number of street children roaming the railway platforms and city streets picking rags and leftovers for a living? Have we ever bothered about the lakhs of migrants who sleep on the pavements and under the flyovers in the cities? They lived a miserable life in the faraway villages and trekked to the cities for a better life. They may have here only sky as the roof, but at least they can manage to assuage the pangs of hunger. Most people who die during severe winter in Northern India are the poor who cannot afford sufficient food and who do not have a shelter for spending the night. Delhi has...

INDIAN SOCIETY AT CROSS- ROADS: Essay Topics

English_Master May 20, 2016 No Comments
INDIAN SOCIETY AT CROSS- ROADS  Since no society can afford to remain static in terms of time and space. The Indian society cannot be an exception to the rule. To be at the cross – roads is not only the prerogative or predicament of an individual, it is also the natural right or rigour of a society. Where the changes or metamorphosis that result from interaction, adaptation and assimilation is for good or for worse, is nobody’s monopoly to forecast with certainty, the Indian society with its varied shades of cultural contours, civilization colours, beliefs, faith, cannot remain immune to the influences that are either indigenous or imported. Earlier, the march of events and their impact on the Indian psyche was slow, sometimes dead slow, but now, with globalization setting the agenda and satellite television churning out round the clock programmes, the changes in the Indian society are highly perceptible. As members of a vast and vigorous Indian society, we know culture and values are matters of identity of a race and civilization and not matters of commerce, which could be allowed to be exposed. If the Indian society has survived the hard knocks and kicks of the past, it only shows that its heart is at its proper...

ATTITUDES OF CHINESE|IMMIGRANTS IN THE U.S. : Essay

English_Master May 16, 2016 No Comments
ATTITUDES OF CHINESE|IMMIGRANTS IN THE U.S. Attitudes about personal interest and career choices are influenced by a person’s culture and age. “I want to be a pilot.” “I want to a lawyer.” Younger generations always decide their interest and what they want to do as their career based on their own benefit. Observing from the past in the U.S., very limited opportunity is offered to the Chinese immigrants. They might consider if they can do it, instead of if they want to do it or not. Regardless of what education level they pos­sessed most of the Chinese immigrant work as a waiter, wait­ress or some low paid jobs. However, the Chinese immigrants’ position in U.S. community is changing these years. Chinese immigrants are being appreciable in the U.S. community. As the changes, there were so many conflicts between younger and older generation who are Chinese immigrants after view­ing on career choices and personal interest. I am interested in this topic and I have interviewed two people of different gen­eration who both earned a bachelor degree in the U.S. Except generation differences, they have got similar background. I am going to learn more about how different generations view personal interest and career choices. Vincent Kwan, an accountant in California, is...

BRIDGING THE RURAL-URBAN DIVIDE: Essay

English_Master May 14, 2016 No Comments
BRIDGING THE RURAL-URBAN DIVIDE Rural India presents a great study in contrast from State to State, from region to region and from district to district. Take the case of Punjab and Haryana where one could see lush farmyards stretching as far as the eyes can wander. Assam presents a different topography with houses perched on the slopes of steep hills. The annual floods in Brahmaputra have a great bearing on the rural economy in Assam. Neighbours in peninsular India, Tamil Nadu and Kerala, are poles apart in the life and village patterns. Kerala has as many as 44 rivers and several lakes and backwaters. While there is heavy rain in Kerala from June to September during the South-West Monsoon and from November to December during the receding North-East Monsoon, Tamil Nadu is blessed with only the North-East Monsoon. Water scarcity affects most of the village in Tamil Nadu. Yet it is Tamil Nadu that provides rice, vegetables and fruits for Kerala whose rice production has come down with paddy fields giving way to coconut farms, bananas plantations and construction of houses. Kerala is known for its coconuts cashew, pepper, rubber and other cash crops. Things have changed a lot in village India, yet people still migrate in large numbers...

ANDREW CARNEGIE: GIANT OF INDUSTRY: Essay

English_Master May 11, 2016 No Comments
ANDREW CARNEGIE: GIANT OF INDUSTRY Andrew Carnegie, the “King of Steel”, the benevolent employer, the giant of industry, was among the greatest influ­ences of the second industrial revolution. It is sometimes ques­tioned whether Carnegie was the ruthless, sneaky steel tyrant some made him out to be, or the generous, benevolent educa­tion benefactor he appeared to be. I believe him to be a com­bination of both, but more so the great giant of industry. Carnegie was the classic rags to riches story, the penni­less immigrant who made it big in the land of opportunity. Carnegie was born in Dunfermline, Scotland, and migrated to America in 1848 at the age of 13. His first job was in a cotton mill, earning a measly $1.20 each week. Carnegie was ambitious and determined though and by the next year had gotten a job in a Pittsburg telegraph office. It was here he got his foot on the door to the business of Pittsburg. This al­lowed him to begin a job at the Pennsylvania Railroad as a secretary to the railroad official, Thomas Scott. By making wise choices, taking control of situations and making smart investments, he soon began climbing the ladder of success. Scott immediately noticed Carnegie as a valuable asset to the...

Essay about VISUAL DISABILITY

English_Master May 10, 2016 No Comments
VISUAL DISABILITY The greatest expression of the ultimate timeless civilization of mankind, is the embodiment of unfeigned, abso­lute, active altruistic reverence for the universal equality, dig­nity and sanctity of humanity; the inability to perceive the declivity from behind an acclivity, or rather, the proclivity to infer the depth of a river from its breath is, no less, the antith­esis, for verisimilitude isn’t proof, but verisimilitude. To be or not to be then, being is but a metaphysical idiom with a being, whose interpretation bears no physical traits that bears not a being, much the same as the paradoxical question of visual disability: a metaphysical idiom with a physical con­figuration that is, however, open to misconstruction; by which misconstruction merely a scratch of the surface to whose bot­tom can be at the bottom of its sophistication; upon which sophistication its decipherment is bound to bring man to la­bour under a misapprehension; a misapprehension from which only appreciating the objective for the objective and the sub­jective for the subjective, can deliver us; a deliverance that can howsoever, never be granted by sweeping the objective under the subjective carpet; under which selfsame carpet the efficacious spearheads for the reclamation of the birthright of persons with visual disability lies ensnared, grimed with the...

Essay about THE ROLE OF TEACHERS AS NATION BUILDERS

English_Master April 23, 2016 No Comments
THE ROLE OF TEACHERS AS NATION BUILDERS Nation building requires unity among the young men minus self ego. It is not an inborn instinct. Someone has to inspire the young blood to consider the nation as supreme. A good citizen would lay his life for the nation. According to the ancient Indian concept a good citizen is one who. Tyajeddeham Kulasyarthe gramasyarthe Kulam tyajet, Gramam janpadsyarthe atmarthe prithvion tyajet. One should give up oneself for the sake of one’s family, one’s family for the sake of one’s village, one’s village for the sake of one’s nation and the world for the sake of one’s soul. This is the ideal that a good teacher would imbibe in him and pass it on to his students. Soul is immortal. One need not worry about the soul that is the part of Paramatma i.e. God. But till this soul lives in this body it has to look after the Karma i.e. the function of the body towards the nation. A teacher has to imbibe the spirit of selfless Karma (duty) towards the nation in his students. In this pursuit he has to remain unprejudiced towards all the students. There have been examples when very good teachers had bias against some. Dronacharya did...

NOISE POLLUTION: Essay Writing

English_Master April 16, 2016 No Comments
NOISE POLLUTION Heat, light, electricity, water and sound, besides a number of things are provided by nature. If the five agents of nature are under control they are rather beneficial to an individual, a society or a nation. If they are in excess and go beyond the control of man or are misused by man they pollute the environment and affect the personal and social health. That sound (or noise) too pollutes the environment may look funny to many. But it does. It may be some times imperceptible but no less harmful. City roads are full of noise from automobiles, bands, mikes and the down towns with quarrelling men and women. The elite areas like the share market are worse even than the vegetable market. The worse preys of noise pollution are the big cities like New York, London, and Shanghai that have perfect air connection with other cities. A flight a minute disturbs the whole city. Equally infested by noise are the areas by the side of a busy railway track. That noise too is a serious pollutant is a recent research. It is based on how sound (or noise) affects human ear. It may affect even animals. Before the advent of automobiles horse carriages carried men and...

Essay Writing Topics on EARTHQUAKES

EARTHQUAKES In 1993 there was a severe earthquake in Latur in Maharashtra. It was followed by Chamoli in Uttaranchal and the most devastating one on 26th January, 2001 in Kutch in Gujarat. A few days before this there was a severe one in El Salvador. Some days after the Gujarat quake there was one in Kobe in Japan. There were tremors in Afghanistan Bangalore, Assam, Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh and many parts of Himalayan region. The worst quake was in Kolkata in 1737.3 lakhs people were killed. 1000 people were killed in Srinagar in 1828. Indo- Nepal border quake took a toll of 10,700. In 1950 Assam quake took the lives of 1530 people. There may be a million quakes a year. But they are much below the sea and earth surface. The energy released by a sizeable earthquake is near about 10,000 times more than the Hiroshima atom bomb. Earth’s surface consists of seven large rigid plates. There are an equal number of small plates. These plates move slowly past one an­other. The motion stretches rocks at the edge of the plates. If the force is great the rocks break and shift this cause an earthquake. The breaks are known as faults. The place where the faults occur...

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...

THE LEGACY OF THE BRITISH RAJ: Essay Writing

English_Master March 13, 2016 No Comments
THE LEGACY OF THE BRITISH RAJ “More than two centuries dominion over a country, by any alien power, but natural, results in a large impact on its social, economical, cultural, legal and political system of the civilization.” India too inherited so many legacies from the British Raj, that had far reaching effects on her art and culture, education, language, legal, political system and economic parameters and so on. The question of legacy as such has arisen because of the arrested nature of Indian civilization.  From time immemorial, our civilization showed a marvelous sense of adaptability. The Persians gave us their imperial ideas and the duality of good and evil. Soon followed the Greek ideas in trade, literature and philosophy. Whatever rudimentary ideas the Kushans, the Sakas and the Pallavas had, they too were absorbed. It was this quality of assimilation that had gone away from India by the time the Muslims came. From then onwards Indian civilization developed its own immunity or defence mechanism like the tightening of caste rules and increased social segregation. India also witnessed the Bhakti Movement which provided a drawbridge between Islam and Hinduism. All the same the spring had gone away from Indian civilization and it presented a pathetic spectacle by the time the...
