English_Master June 11, 2016 No Comments
THE POLITICS OF RELIGION, CASTE AND SECULARISM He was indeed a poor boy from a backward caste in the erstwhile Travancore State (now part of the Kerala state) in pre-independence India. Though poor, he was diligent and intelligent and others who knew about his family background raised their eyebrows when he scored the highest marks in the then Travancore University both for History and English Literature. That the boy was able to win such laurels despite the fact he was often asked to stand on a bench or in the corner of the classroom because of his failure to pay fees on time demonstrates the inner resolve of the promising youth. The Dewan of Travancore, Sir CP. Ramaswai Iyer summoned him one day and told him that he would send him to Oxford, but later, to the shock of the boy, the Dewan withdrew his offer and offered him a job in the Government. The youth was baffled by the sudden change in the attitude of the Dewan, but screwed up courage to ask him: “Sir, could you give me a job as a lecturer instead? The Dewan was furious, banged the receiver and told him: “In that case leave your address and details with my personal assistant”. It...

THE YOUTH CULTURE TODAY “Men, Men—these are wanted: everything else will be ready; But strong, vigorous, believing young men, sincere to backbone. A hundred such and the world becomes revolutionized” Ages ago, even before the advent of democracy, great masters all over the world had acknowledged the potentially of the youth in shaping the destiny of a nation. These masters, within their respective social and cultured back ground, very carefully sow the seeds of wisdoms in the mind of children to nourish them with their experience, and Herculean efforts. They tried to make the maturation as youths not only a biological but also an intellectual, emotional, imaginative and spiritual one and above all blessed them with a vision for the future.

Essay about THE NEED FOR ENVIRONMENT-CONSCIOUSNESS

English_Master June 11, 2016 No Comments
THE NEED FOR ENVIRONMENT-CONSCIOUSNESS Today, there is now a premium on fresh air and there even are bars in Japan where people can buy whiffs of oxygen. If we continue to play foul with the environment and interfere with the already disturbed ecosystem, the day is not for off when we shall rue over the mind-boggling progress and excessive exploitation of nature to feed our follies and glorify our greed. It is neither a fad nor a fashion to show our concern for the environment. It is a feeling for the fast deteriorating miller, both natural and man-made, that pricks the conscience of some who take upon themselves the rigorous but moral responsibility of creating an awareness among the people, to preserve the delicate balance in the entire ecosystems that has been disturbed beyond repair and recognition in many cases. Since the problem of environmental degradation is global, a concerted effort needs to be launched to infuse ‘environment-consciousness’ among al1 and sundry before it gets too late to mend the matters. In its mad race to make miracles and bring about a complete metamorphosis in the living styles, modern human kind seems to have failed to appreciate the inherent worth of animal and plant life in totality. In ancient...

Essay Writing about THE LURE OF SPACE

English_Master June 11, 2016 No Comments
THE LURE OF SPACE November 17, 1882: The British Royal Observatory reported a strange celestial visitor-a circular object glowing green. June 24, 1997: An Idaho (USA) businessman Kenneth Arnold, while flying near Mt. Rainier (Washington), spotted a group of nine silvery, crescent-shaped objects, flying in tight formation. What were those strange sightings? They looked nothing like birds, were nowhere near in appearance to aircrafts and were quite different from clouds. Were they illusions? Were they hoaxes? Were they unidentified flying objects from the ‘extraterrestrial? There has been no confirmation or explanation for these and other numerous sightings before and after. Same holds true for the crop circles, intricate precision of pyramids, gigantic stone heinge, etc Almost each one of us, at one or the other point of our lives, have gazed up to the sky marveling at its sheer beauty, wondering where does it begin? Where does it end? What lies beyond our sight and what facts are waiting to be unveiled? Are we not alone? Are we sharing this existence? Are we the most primitive or the most advanced? Won’t it be too arrogant to believe that we are the only one in this universe? Do aliens and E.Ts exist? This unknown and unexplained aspect is the biggest...

Essay about FORTUNE FAVOURS THE BRAVE

English_Master June 11, 2016 No Comments
FORTUNE FAVOURS THE BRAVE “Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, into the heaven of freedom, my Father let my country awake.”     —Rabindranath Tagore The first Nobel Prize winner of India might have written these words, as he knew that ‘fortune favours the brave’. Achievements are due to grace of God and blessings of elders. Being sincere and hard working means getting cooperation and coordination of all due to one’s daring nature. Fortune or destiny smiles on us if we, by our actions, make it bound to do so. Since ages to the present day, luck goes hand in hand with people who dared to move the system and without any fear, worked out for enforcing something new to the traditional system. History is for them who, by their actions, fought with the prejudiced customs and rituals. To flow with the stream is the normal trait, to move against it is bravery. Fear is a state of mind, to overcome its negativity is bravery. Unless and until one remains more and more positive, bravery would not come. To be in tune with progress and prosperity, one has to be bold enough to cross the hurdles in the path towards destination. If something goes wrong...

THE LOOMING WATER CRISIS: Essay Topics

English_Master June 10, 2016 No Comments
THE LOOMING WATER CRISIS Imagine that a billion people around the world are without a source of potable water-that is, one seventh of the world population has no access to clean water. The so-called globalization and the failure of leadership to meet one of the basic needs of humanity have tended to increase the incidence of waterborne diseases. Opinions are divided about the rationale of public-private partnership as one of the viable means to meet the crises in respect of accessibility and availability of clean drinking water. And there is no end to inter-State disputes over the rights of riparian States to receive adequate supplies of water for irrigation. Even the available water from great and small rivers is polluted beyond the saturation point. And there seems to be little headway in regard to the river-linking plan initiated by the Supreme Court with opinions still being expressed about its viability and utility. It was clear from the recently held Fourth World Water Forum (WWF) in Mexico where the world community was still fumbling for a solution to the looming water crisis. The cold statistics released by the UN World Water development Report gives enough room for gloom: nearly 6,000 people, mostly children, die of water-related causes every day. The...

THE INDIAN WOMEN TODAY: Essay

English_Master June 10, 2016 No Comments
THE INDIAN WOMEN TODAY The times have changed radically, and the Indian woman of today is no longer reconciled to her traditional role as a mere housewife, a mother or a daughter. Whether it is higher education, or the general and fast spreading enlightenment about rights and privileges, and the concepts of equality between man and woman, that are responsible for the distinctly notable awakening among this section of mankind, it is difficult to say. Perhaps the change in attitudes and the increasing demands for a better status in life and a more important role in national life are the cumulative result of all relevant factors operating simultaneously. The more enlightened women of today take delight in recalling that woman was regarded in ancient times as the perfect workmanship of God and the glory of angels. But the typical Indian woman, especially in the urban areas, is a specimen of the perfect workmanship of God, a symbol of self-sacrifice, an angel in human form, a source of eternal joy, devotion and everlasting love and affection. Far from it, countless women, notably those who are well-educated or otherwise qualified for certain types of jobs, are eager to get employed and become economically independent Generally, the desire to get jobs is...

THE GLOBAL NETWORK OF TERRORISM: Essay Topics

English_Master June 10, 2016 No Comments
THE GLOBAL NETWORK OF TERRORISM The First and Second World Wars saw groups of nations collaborating against one another till the bombing at Hiroshima and Nagasaki clinched the bloodiest wars in history. But in the Third World War, we might never know who could be our enemy, but one could dare say that sixty years after the Second World War, the Third World War is already being fought in country after country against an elusive enemy that has packed into its punch a kind of invincibility arising from the element of surprise. And this enemy chooses its own time and place, using weapons that even the most powerful nation cannot ever contemplate. It is the World versus the Band of Terrorists operating from any part of the world that has kept every nation on tenterhooks. That the ranks of this enemy can recruit suicide squads for the bloody deed makes them more powerful than the atom bomb! How can you threaten to kill someone who is already prepared to die for a cause? Who doesn’t want to save his life? But here are diehards who are eager to become martyrs in the very act of mindless terrorism Their methodology could be different and the areas of operations might vary...

THE COMPOSITE CULTURE OF INDIA: Essay

English_Master June 10, 2016 No Comments
THE COMPOSITE CULTURE OF INDIA Culture and civilization are two such concepts, which are devoid of any concrete definition. The word ‘culture’ broadly covers the sum total of a nation’s aesthetic and intellectual achievements. India from time immemorial has been regarded as a land of composite culture and prosperity—thus attracting intellectuals and adventurers alike—may they be the Romans, who traded with the Tamil kingdoms of the south or the Christian missionaries of the 1st Century A.D. landing in Kerala or the persecuted forefathers of present day Parsis who sought asylum in the Western coast of India. Thus, culture can be regarded as the widening of mind as well as of spirit. The essence of our composite culture through the ages has been its capacity to absorb various streams of cultures. The core around which other cultures took shelter and eventually got absorbed has resulted in the ‘compositeness’ of our culture. The essential feature of this composite culture is broad-based, which focuses mainly on tolerance, adaptiveness with a unique individuality. It is, therefore, amazing to note that the same essence that existed before many millennia has continued till today and is continuing. Very few things in history are more astonishing than the wonderful stability of the social structure in India,...

Essay about THE ART OF FLATTERY

English_Master June 10, 2016 No Comments
THE ART OF FLATTERY The desire to be noticed and admired is a basic human need. Once in a while everyone wants a little praise. It is quite natural. Within limits, it is even beneficial. A word of appreciation can put new heart into a man It can inspire him to greater effort. But it is only genuine appreciation, which can have that effect. The praise we receive must be well deserved. As soon as it is exaggerated, it becomes flattery. Why do people take to flattery? The most apparent motive is to please the one who is flattered. But behind that lie deeper motives. By pleasing the object of his attentions, the flatterer is usually trying to gain some advantage. He may be trying to get an undue favour. He may be trying of squeeze out some money. Or he may be hankering after a position. He may be doing it for some other reason. But we can be sure of one thing at least. He does not normally deserve what he wants to get. He knows that very well. Therefore, he takes advantage of a basic human weakness. Anybody too fond of his own praise is his natural prey. It takes two to make a flatterer. The...
