SCIENCE AND SUPERSTITIONS: Essay

English_Master June 8, 2016 No Comments
SCIENCE AND SUPERSTITIONS Science and superstitions, although they claim their descent from the same, a common ancestry, yet like the Arabs and the Israelis, forgetting that they are brothers, are always at draggers drawn with each other; they have no love lost between them. Of the two sisters, the science and the superstition, the latter is the older. The common ancestor is ignorance. Born of the ignorance the superstition grew fast on the very I fertile ground of the hearts – innocent and ignorant. After a very long | time of the birth of the first child, the superstition, the second child, the more intelligent the more modern, the more beautiful child, the science was born. The latter born baby, the science, set-forth on the path that did shoot of distinctly at a fairly large angle, perhaps never to meet its sister again. It would not be wrong to say that though they are sisters, yet the latter, the younger sister is clearly distinguishable from her older sister. As man gradually gained more knowledge about the causes behind the natural phenomena; he began shedding off some of the fear associated with them. This was because man could now find and understand some of the ‘natural’ secrets. Once the ball...

SCIENCE AND HUMAN HAPPINESS Ours is the age of science. The contribution of science to human happiness is by no means small. Borders of human knowledge have been pushed forward in all directions. Man’s working capacity, in all fields has enormously increased. It is by virtue of scientific knowledge that man has performed stupendous tasks. Man has explored the bottom of the oceans, conquered the high mountains, stepped on the moon and now hopes to set foot on the other planets also. Science has given sophisticated instruments to man for research and the deadly weapons of offence and of defence. Transport and communication have become extremely easy.

SACHAR COMMITTEE REPORT: Essay Writing

English_Master June 8, 2016 No Comments
SACHAR COMMITTEE REPORT The much awaited report of the Rajinder Sachar Committee on the status of Muslims, with a host of recommendations aimed at highlighting the grey areas of development among the Muslim community and seeking ‘the best possible package of Governmental initiatives and measures’ for them was tabled in the Lok Sabha on November 30,2006. One of the salient aspects of the report is the suggestion put forward by the panel that to ameliorate the condition of “acute deprivation” of Muslims, the Government should take prompt measures to provide the backward among them considerable access, in the same way as the SCs, STs and OBCs, to the benefits of reservation in employment and educational institutions. As the panel has categorically stated in its findings, the Muslim social groups such as the Arzals, whose traditional occupation is similar to that of Scheduled Castes (SCs), can be designated as Most Backward Community and provided reservation. Similarly, the Ashraf and Ajlaf groups should be treated at par with Other Backward Classes (OBCs) and covered under the OBC quota. To increase the political participation of the community, the panel has said that Muslims should be nominated to public bodies, including local bodies. The committee also sought a review of the delimitation of...

Essay Topics about RIGHT AND DUTIES GO TOGETHER

English_Master June 8, 2016 No Comments
RIGHT AND DUTIES GO TOGETHER “The rights and duties are wedded to each other. The biggest rights in the world are achieved through service and sacrifice.” Today’s world is another great mire in the ominous darkness of which one only hears confused protestations and cries of alarm to ensure each one’s rights. Old and young, high and low, men and women all clamour for their rights unmindful of any genuine reason for the same. Factory workers demands to be liberated from the oppression of the authority. Old men complain that no right is guaranteed to them and that they are being discarded as an invalid gentry. So much so that school children are no longer prepared to tolerate parental authority and the tyranny of the elders. Claiming for one’s rights may be an expression of increased awareness of one’s responsibility towards the society but, the expression does not acquire fully fledged meaning unless demand for rights is duly supplemented by an equal response to one’s duty. An individual who is careful in fully exploiting his rights is naturally inclined towards performing his job well. For, rights arise from one’s sincere discharge of duties. And it is this balancing of rights and duties that establish relationship between man and the...

Essay about RESERVATION WITH DIVIDE THE SOCIETY ALONG CASTE LINES

English_Master June 8, 2016 No Comments
RESERVATION WITH DIVIDE THE SOCIETY ALONG CASTE LINES During the British reign, it was proposed that the Scheduled Castes be treated as a separate community and granted separate reservation under the Government of India Act 1935. But the historic fast of Gandhiji prevented it. After independence, the Constituent Assembly formed the Advisory Committee on Fundamental Rights and Minorities headed by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. The committee recommended special privilege to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes for a limited period. The privilege was meant for the upliftment of the lower castes, but it has become a gross abuse in the hands of self-centered politicians. The special provisions were primarily for a limited period of ten years from the date of taking effect of the Constitution on January 26, 1960. There is no provision of a fixed period for the continuation of this privilege. The ten years’ period of constitutional safeguards continued to be extended each time by ten years, before the period of earlier ten years expired. The very concept of reservation is against the essence of the Preamble to the Constitution of India, which promises equality of status and opportunity. Once a concession or any kind of privilege is extended to a particular class it is impossible for any...

Essay about REHABILITATION OF THE HANDICAPPED

English_Master June 8, 2016 No Comments
REHABILITATION OF   THE HANDICAPPED All along, society has tended to treat the handicapped as a class apart—objects of sympathy and charity. The fact that persons with handicaps, too, are human beings and that they cannot be denied their basic rights to love and care, education and training, gainful employment and ultimate social integration is being realized all over the world including India. Few may know that several years ago, the UN framed the rights of disabled persons; similarly, a Convention held in Belgium several years ago formulated the rights of the mentally challenged. Today both the government and the community have recognized that the welfare of the disabled is an integral part of the human resource development and accordingly efforts are being made by both official and non-official agencies to make the handicapped self-reliant and self-confident through a series of measures like education and training, provision of employment and their social integration into the national mainstream. According to a survey conducted by the National Sample Survey Organization (NSSO) in 1991, there were 16.15 million people suffering from physical disability and they constituted 1.9 percent of the total population of the country then. According to another sample survey conducted by the NSSO the same year in respect of children in...

Essay Writing about REMEMBERING GOD

English_Master June 8, 2016 No Comments
REMEMBERING GOD Almost all of us believe in God as our creator, our benefactor, our all-in-all. Yet we do not devote any time in worshiping or even in remembrance. And whenever we do, it is because we need something.  In a crisis, when all remedies fail, even the non-believers turn to God for help. Is it right to remember him only in times of need? How much more helpful and affectionate would God be were we to remember him without seeking anything from him? Perhaps we do not know how; perhaps we find the recognized methods such as deity worship in temples or at home, too cumbersome and irritable. It is our good fortune that for this age of Kaliyuga, the Lord in his compassion has extended to us his otherwise inaccessible self through his name. The scriptures have laid down a very practical, easy and enjoyable method of remembering and worshipping God and that is, by chanting his holy name. If done consistently and sincerely with love and devotion, there is little else that one need to have his grace. Some scholars undervalue the Efficiency of naam-japa as it appears too easy and regard it as an inferior method meant only for those unable to take to other...

Essay Writing Topics about RAM JANAM BHOOMI

English_Master June 8, 2016 No Comments
RAM JANAM BHOOMI Ram Janam Bhoomi or Babri Masjid is a dispute of long standing. It revolves round a building in Ayodhya in the Babri Style of architecture. It consists of three rooms and a platform (Chabutra) in front of one of the rooms which was considered to be a Ram Temple, but which had no idol in it. The middle room is used by the Pujari of the Temple. It is he who recites hymns and bhajans at fixed times on the platform which is supposed to be the exact spot where Lord Rama was born. As regards the third room, it is used as a mosque but it was only rarely that anybody offered Namaz in it. Both Hindus and Muslims claim the entire structure as their own. The dispute was referred to the U.P. High Court. Then one-night idols of Lord Rama and Sita appeared in the temple and the whole dispute was activated. The High Court ordered that the door of the temple be opened to all those who want to offer prayers there. The status quo was to be maintained i.e. there was to be no new construction or alteration of existing structure till the suit was finally decided. The Muslims reacted sharply by...

POLITICS WITHOUT ETHICS IS A DISASTER: Essay Writing

English_Master June 7, 2016 No Comments
POLITICS WITHOUT ETHICS IS A DISASTER Aeons ago when the halcyon days of democracy had yet not arrived,     the world was governed by kings and queens. The king with his absolute powers ruled over his subjects with the help of his ministers and governors who could be aptly termed as the politicians of those days. Then one day a minister in some province decided that he’d like to be the king himself. But how? Then he along with his followers devised a stratagem to overthrow the king and claim the throne. And after a coup and perhaps some bloodshed, the crown exchanged hands, or more precisely, heads. Thus ever since the world ‘polities’ became an antonym of ‘ethics’, history has witnessed many unethical practices in politics over the centuries. A classical instance of this can be had from the great epic Ramayana in which Lord Rama’s stepmother succeeds in sending Lord Rama, the heir-designate to the throne, into exile in order to get her son crowned as the king. Another great epic Mahabharata portrays how the Kauravas snatched the entire kingdom from the ruling Pandavas by winning a mere game of dice. However, these were bloodless change-over’s and could be justified on moral grounds i.e. honouring a word given...

PLUTO’S DEMOTION, SCIENCE AND SUPERSTITION: Essay

English_Master June 7, 2016 No Comments
PLUTO’S DEMOTION, SCIENCE AND SUPERSTITION Despite the fact that Pluto will no longer be mentioned in science text books as the ninth player in our solar system-scientists have reduced the number of planets to eight-it will surely be one of the most hotly debated and studied objects in the years to come. If 1930 marked the year when the 22 year-old Clyde Tombaugh discovered Pluto, August 24,2006 saw the International Astronomical Union (IAU) stripping it of its status as a planet. Incidentally, the same international body had recognized it as a planet in 1930. Araied with a new definition of the planet, the IAU has decided now to backtrack from its own decision taken at mat time. But what in the first place prompted scientists to demote Pluto? Whole controversy started three years ago with the discovery of Xenaby Michael Brown of the California Institute of Technology “Had Xena’s mass [and hence the lack of nearly round shape and size been smaller/ there would have been no problems,” said Dr. Siraj Hasan, Director of the Bangalore based Indian Institute of Astrophysics (HAP). Dr. Hasan represented India at the IAU meeting in Prague. That was not to be. “If Pluto can be a planet then why not Xena,” he said...

PLEASURES OF READING: Essay Topics

English_Master June 7, 2016 No Comments
 PLEASURES OF READING Pleasures of reading are pleasures of ever. One who enjoys pleasures of reading needs no other pleasures. One who is the friend of books needs no other friend. Books are our nearest and dearest friends. They are our kith and kin. We can depend upon books for the right advice at all times and climbs of life. There is nothing superior to the pleasures of reading, whether a person is young or old. Milton said, “A book is a bloodless substitute of a man.” That means a book is a full friend only it has no body and bones. But it has brains. It can give you the best and the brightest piece of an advice under any difficult circumstance. As another poet said: My days among the dead are past. Around me I behold. Wherever these casual eyes are cast, The rightly minds of old; My never-failing friends are they, With whom I converse day by day. To a truly educated man, books provide the greatest of pleasures. Unfortunately, most of the people today are not properly educated. They are just literate, not educated. They have no love for books. They begin to hate books after they get through the examinations, by hook or by...

PILGRIMAGE: Essay Writing Topics

English_Master June 7, 2016 No Comments
PILGRIMAGE We must reap great fruits out of pilgrimages. It is indeed very heartening to see thousands of pilgrims marching to the dizzy snow-clad heights of holy Amaranth. By August 24, around a hundred thousand pilgrims will have had the darshan of the lingam in the Amaranth cave. Then will start arrangements for the Haj pilgrimage. Likewise thousands of Christian visits Israel and Palestine every year, where Jesus was born, lived, died and indeed rose back to life. Sikhs from all over the world visit the Golden Temple too. Thus, people of all religions go to pilgrimages. At times it is with a certain hope to attain some benefit or to fulfill a desire or sometimes because a prayer has been answered. Sometimes no material benefit is asked for but only divine grace. Those who have almost fulfilled all their earthy desires go with another hope that of ensuring salvation or immortal or eternal life for themselves. In the process occasionally they even undergo a deep god experience and return converted, showing a marked improvement in their spiritual lives and indeed in their attitudes towards others and inner happiness. Their spiritual quotient becomes higher. They become more tolerant and forgiving of others and as a result often attain greater...

PEOPLE—THE ONLY CENSORS OF GOVERNMENTS: Essay

English_Master June 7, 2016 No Comments
PEOPLE—THE ONLY CENSORS OF GOVERNMENTS There are governments of men who are sincere, honest and true, just as there are governments run by self-seekers, demagogues, and power-obsessed tyrants. There are monarchies, oligarchies, dictatorships and democracies. Who serves as a check on all types of government, good, bad or indifferent? Who acts as the final arbiter and the ultimate determinant of their worth and performance? The plain answer is—the people. The will of the people is the only legitimate foundation of any government. The legal sovereign, that is, the authority constituted or set up by law, may have a will of its own and may enforce it for some time, but it is the political sovereign (who lies behind, and limits, the legal authority) that ultimately prevails. During the 16th and 17th centuries the doctrine of “popular sovereignty” emerged as an expression of resentment of the people against the despotic authority of kings and their reliance on the theory of Divine Rights. The concept of popular sovereignty attributes ultimate sovereignty to the people. Rousseau was its great exponent, and it became a slogan of the French Revolution. The American Declaration of Independence and the U.S. constitution incorporated this principle in the preamble by affirming that Government derives its authority from...

Essay Writing Topics about PEACEFUL USES OF THE ATOM

English_Master June 7, 2016 No Comments
PEACEFUL USES OF THE ATOM On August 6 every year, the world observes the anniversary of the first use of the atomic bomb against Mankind at Hiroshima in Japan in 1945. It was on that day that the new source of energy discovered by two German scientists, Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassmann was first put to use. Release of the immense and hitherto unsuspected power in the atom was undoubtedly an epoch-making discovery, but the first use man had found for it was to unleash the fires of hell on this earth. The tragic first demonstration of the destructive power of atomic energy shocked the conscience of mankind. But as soon as the shock wore off, questions arose in the minds of men everywhere whether the new source of power to which man had gained access was just a destructive a force which had revealed itself to write the last chapter in the annals of man, or whether the nuclear coin had a beneficial side also. The development of civilization has all along been accompanied by a constantly accelerated increase in the use of energy. In this new role, the atom was surely an important addition to sources of energy already known, e.g., fuels like coal, oil, gas, lignite...

Essay Topics about OZONE DEPLETION: DANGER FOR ATMOSPHERE

English_Master June 7, 2016 No Comments
OZONE DEPLETION: DANGER FOR ATMOSPHERE  The Sun emits radiation over a broad range of wavelengths to which human eye respond in the region from approximately 400nm to 70 nm. The ranges can be divided into three categories: UVA (Ultra violet): 320-400nm). DVB (280-320 nm) partially absorbed by Ozone. UVC (200-280 nm) completely absorbed by Ozone. The maximum concentration (about 0.5 ppm) occurs between the altitude of 20 to 35 km. and the layer at this level is called ozone layer. The presence of ozone is an essential necessity for life on Earth. Stratospheric ozone layer absorbs dangerous UVB rays of the sun and this protects the earth surface from these high-energy radiations. Over the past few decades 03 layer is thinning out because of manmade pollutants, which catalyze the dissociation of 03 at a very fast rate. Major pollutants responsible for depletion of Ozone are chloroflourocarbons (CPCs) nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons and oxides of chlorine and bromine. Increased ultraviolet radiation would retard photosynthesis in plants. Moreover it would increase earths mean temperature which would have disastrous consequence of flooding submerging many low lying islands. Recently it has been found that the ultraviolet radiation degrades polymers used in paints and building materials. Most ozone are created and destroyed in the stratosphere....
