English_Master August 10, 2016 No Comments
JUDGE A MAN BY THE WAY HE SPENDS LEISURE A man or woman’s free time, when there is nothing specific to do and no duty to perform may be described as his or her leisure. It is generally agreed that leisure enables a person to do what one likes—sleeping, walking about, going for an adventure and being wholly oneself for some time. Without some leisure life would become a heavy burden and I totally unbearable. It would not be wrong to say that there would be {hardly any art, literature, crafts, poetry or philosophy if there is no leisure, [for all these are the products of spare time when there is no restriction or limitation. Diversity in various areas of activity also depends on leisure; the more the leisure the greater the diversity, and the more the colour in the country’s life and living. But it is possible to judge the culture, education and mental development of a person by the way he spends his leisure. Those who merely waste time twiddling their thumbs or remaining idle, or sleeping for long hours even after a good night’s rest, or spend their spare time quarrelling with members of their family or just loaf about cannot be called a cultured or...

Essay Topics about LIVE AND LET LIVE

English_Master August 10, 2016 No Comments
LIVE AND LET LIVE  Live and let live is a principle. It tells us about the importance of the spirit of co-operation and brother­hood. In our daily domestic, social, national and interna­tional life, if we are tolerant and believe in the policy of give and take, most of our problems can be solved, most of the people are selfish and narrow minded. They want to live comfortably. They do not know that all of us are one. God is our father and we are brothers and sisters. Our Interests are common, we have claim on each other and duties towards others. Guru Nanak, Mahatma Gandhi and later on our beloved leader Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru also stressed the need for fellow feeling. Live and let live is one of the principles of punch sheel. If the big power of the world became tolerant the clouds of war can disap­pear in no time. But the tragedy is that they want to exploit others. The need of the hour is that we should rise above petty jealousies by serving others, we serve our own welfare. All our Holy books, prophets and well wishers of mankind have been preaching us to practice this ideal. The world can be worth living only if we...

VIOLENCE AND POLITICS IN INDIA: Essay Writing Topics

English_Master June 12, 2016 No Comments
VIOLENCE AND POLITICS IN INDIA  Politics has come to acquire a bad odour and generally implies unfair, underhand dealings, exploitation of the poor and the ignorant, though it need not necessarily be so. Since it generally involves the attainment of certain objectives, such as the seizure of power by all available methods, violence often becomes a part of it. Of course, violence need not be a vital or essential part of politics even in the most ill-governed country, but there is no doubt that unscrupulous politicians seldom hesitate to resort to violent methods to achieve their aims. Whenever the practitioners of the art of politics find that normal and socially acceptable methods and practices have not brought them the desired achievements, they stoop to unethical methods, including incitement of sensitive people to violence. It is tragic reflection on civilization that with the much-publicized progress in various spheres of human activity the resort to violence has also increased. In fact, one of the dominating factors in the postwar years is the growth of the spirit of violence. Even in India, where the apostle of peace and non-violence, Mahatma Gandhi, preached that violence is both degrading and derogatory to human beings, the menace has been increasing. Proof of this dismal phenomenon...

WAR AS A PERMANENT CONDITION OF MANKIND: Essay Writing

English_Master June 12, 2016 No Comments
WAR AS A PERMANENT CONDITION OF MANKIND From time immemorial, great thinkers and philosophers have been trying to uncover the mainsprings of action in the human mind. Their investigations have led them to explore its inmost recesses to find out what moves it and inspires it to action, whether human nature is divine or demoniac, whether man is essentially peaceful or conflict-loving etc. Barring a few optimists, almost all of them have reached the conclusion that war rather than peace is the natural state of man. Speaking of Hobbes, the greatest political thinker England has produced. Burke has said “A meditation on the conduct of political societies made old Hobbes imagine that war was the state of nature.” Defoe considers the art of war to be “the highest perfection of human knowledge.” In The Prince Machiavelli has observed, “War should be the only study of a prince. He should consider peace only as a breathing time which gives him leisure to contrive and furnishes ability to execute military plans.” A preference for war is a natural instinct in man. He is a child of conflict—torn all his life between opposing sentiments, passions and forces, battling against a hostile world to protect and maintain his social identity and economic stability....

UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL: Essay

English_Master June 12, 2016 No Comments
UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL Conquest of happiness has meant different facets to different generations. Our forefathers took pride in scholarship, a spirit of sacrifice and solicitude for the welfare of others. Gone are those days. Today, we only are for ourselves. We are jealous of the advancement of our neighbours. We end up tense and unhappy. The term ‘happy’ has a variety of meanings and it stands for lucky, fortunate, content, and glad or apt. Happiness lies within the mind of the individual. No amount of external wealth may be successful in making him happy. Our forefathers had a life-style, very much different from what we have today. Their life was based mainly on the concept of “simple living and high thinking”. People were satisfied with whatever they obtained after working hard. Excess material wealth did not mean much for them. They indulged in charity, etc. Rather, it was spiritual and mental satisfaction and enrichment, which they aimed at. The structural framework of our forefathers’ families was different from ours. They lived in a cohesive joint family structure where they were happier than us. They cared for each other. The siblings grew up with their cousins. The bond of love, which they shared, cannot be easily found...

Essay Writing about UNINVITED GUESTS

English_Master June 12, 2016 No Comments
UNINVITED GUESTS The almost wholesale urbanization of society, which we see today, was only a distant possibility, and the places familiar to us these days as hotels and lodging houses were not known. The words occurring in the Old Testament, viz., “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers; for thereby some have entertained angels themselves” had a very valid application in those days. The unlooked for and uninvited guest at that time was very often a way rarer overtaken by the night and looking for shelter, to issue forth on his journey the next morning with fresh vigour after a night’s rest and a little sharing of potluck under an honest man’s roof. He did not look for or criticize the lack of social graces in his host and was grateful for whatever attention he could get from a person he might never have hoped to meet a second time in his life. But entertaining in the formality-ridden, largely urbanized society of today is an entirely different proposition. From being a moral duty, it has been converted into a social obligation or even a means of business-promotion. The stranger is, therefore, naturally excluded from the prevailing compass of hospitality. He does not fit into the picture. If he finds himself...

Essay Topics about TSUNAMI THE NATURAL DISASTER

English_Master June 12, 2016 No Comments
TSUNAMI THE NATURAL DISASTER Tsunami is a Japanese name for ‘harbour waves’ generally called tidal waves but actually tsunami has nothing to do with tides. Tsunami are generated when ocean floods shift vertically, usually due to an earthquake When a shift in the ocean floor displaces the water above, the water body travels as a huge wave to regain equilibrium. Actually tsunami is generated as a result of a sudden rise or fall of section on the earth’s crust under the ocean. A seismic disturbance can displace the water column area ting a rise or fall in the level of the ocean above. This rise or fall in sea level is the initial formation of tsunami wave. Unlike surface waves that affect only a shallow amount of water, a tsunami stretches all the way to the sea floor, as rises to the land, so does the wave. Arriving at shore, such waves can grow suddenly by dozens of feet. The satellite imaging did not provide a depth for the wave’s that hit ashore. In deep water, a tsunami can travel at 700 km per hour. But in shallow water near coast it get slower and water mass rises up to 50 meters. A tsunami is very much destructive. It...

Essay Writing Topics about THE SLUM

English_Master June 12, 2016 No Comments
THE SLUM Perpetual flow of people from villages to cities creates many socioeconomic problems. The density of population of cities rises and civic amenities fall short of needs. Law and order situation deteriorates. Prices of essential commodities rise. Housing situation become acute and rents soar. New entrants start living on pavements and thatched huts. That way slum come up, at times, adjacent to or right in the middle of posh colonies. Migration of the poor to cities creates slums. Cultivable land in villages is limited. And it is not enough to support the landless labourers in the village. Instead of starving in villages, they along with their women folk move on to cities in search of employment. While men work as unskilled works, their women get work in households. Work found, they build jhuggies that later become a cluster of huts. Landless labourers are also attracted to cities as there have many factories where mill hands are needed. Later, these factory workers call their relatives and friends from their villages. Thus cities start expanding haphazardly. Spread of education in villages is also responsible for migration of rural people to urban areas. Once a person in a village crosses the matriculation level, the agricultural profession does not interest him. He...

Essay about YOUTHS: IDENTITY CRISIS

English_Master June 12, 2016 No Comments
YOUTHS: IDENTITY CRISIS The youth in our society are faced with a dilemma of identity crisis. They have played no role in molding the society in which they are living and they have practically no hope of playing a vital role in shaping a society of their dreams. What with criminals, moneybags, corrupt politicians ruling the roost? Do the young armed only with their undiluted idealism, have a chance? Alienation is in vogue these days. It has gained currency in writing and discussions of intellectuals. It is fashionable to use the expression. But, what is the reason? Academic achievements of the young are something to be proud of. The swelling numbers of annual convocations, an amazing display of versatility at cultural functions are proof. They have neither confusion nor uncertainty about what they aspire for and their careers. Elders do not decide for “submissive” adolescents academic choices. Youths today are awakened and enlightened. They are forthright and fearless. What is to become of this chiseled product? Where and how to utilize his bursting talent? Frustration and disenchantment result because of the rampant corruption, nepotism, red-tapism, hypocrisy and unashamed scramble for spoils. In short they are living in a twilight society. Discordant note is struck when they raise an accusing...

Essay Topics about THE PLACE OF SCIENCE IN A LIBERAL EDUCATION

English_Master June 11, 2016 No Comments
THE PLACE OF SCIENCE IN A LIBERAL EDUCATION For centuries the scientist and the scientific thinker were personanongrata with the educational authorities both in the east and the west. The attitude of the scientist was a questioning attitude, while education demanded of the student perfect conformity. The disciple came to the preceptor in a mood of absolute humility and everything that the preceptor said was gospel truth for him. Faith, absolute faith was the sine qua non of education. Now science is opposed to this attitude of passive acceptance. Scientists like Copernicus, Galileo, Bruno, Newton and Leibnitz challenged accepted opinions. They would accept nothing on trust. Even the Bible was not the last word for them. They had to suffer a lot; one of them, Bruno had to pay the extreme penalty for his opinions. But these men did not swerve from their set path of reason and experimentation. They went on asking questions and challenging time-honoured beliefs and proved them to be mostly ill-founded. It was this antagonism between science and the educational authorities, which prevented science from being included in educational curricula for a long time. The subjects generally considered suitable for study were History, Philosophy, Belles-lettres, with a modicum of mathematics. Even a century and a...
