New Speech Topics Essay on ‘Human Rights Protection’

Jose John May 23, 2013 No Comments
Human Rights Protection Human rights are the rights that we possess as human beings- right to live, liberty and human dignity. Protection of human rights, indicated by the Human Rights Index is a measure of a country’s status or level of development. Protection of human rights is of prime importance because they are the basic rights to be enjoyed by every human being. The issues relating to human rights’ violations not only pertain to humans in general but also specific vulnerable sections like women, children, bonded labourers, persons with disability and refugees. The violation of human rights can be studied in two different perspectives, i.e. during normal circumstances, and during special situations like war. Under normal circumstances the human rights remain, more or less, secure and there are little violations. The citizens have the right to criminal justice and freedom from arbitrary detention and punishment. Emphasis on the aspect of human rights has been laid down by many articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The detention itself may be preventive or punitive. In India, it has been recognised since long that the history of honour of human rights in this field is largely the achievement of the observance...

Jose John May 23, 2013 No Comments
India’s Historical Monuments It is said that India is dotted with monuments since antiquity. The country has a rich cultural heritage. Our ancient rulers had great fascination for magnificent buildings like forts, temples and mosques. They built some of the most remarkable buildings in the world. Some of these buildings have vanished in the march of time but many like Taj Mahal, Lai Quila, Qutub Minar, Jama Masjid, Fatehpur Sikri, Caves of Ajanta and Ellora, Sarnath Temple have stood the test of time. The British have also played an important role in giving us some historical monuments. Temple art flourished in the Gupta period architecture. Dashavtar Temple of Degaru is the first example of making Shekhar (top) in temple art. Brahma cave temples and Buddha cave temples are important among Gupta period caves temples. The main temples of Gupta Period are: Bhimrao (Nagged) (Shiva) Toga (Jabalpur) (Vishnu) Degaru (Jhansi) (Dashavtar) Syrup (brick made) (Layman) Udayagiri (Vishnu) Bitargaon (Kanpur, brick made) (Shiva) Kho (Nagod) (Shiva) The rock-cut architecture of the period is represented by two conventional types-the Chaitya and the Vihara.

School Essay Writing Topics on Law and Justice in India

Jose John May 23, 2013 No Comments
Law and Justice in India Law and justice are of supreme importance in any society, because, whatever the level of economic development, if there is no justice, fairness and rule of law, there will be dissatisfaction, oppression and anarchy. In India, the Constitution guarantees protection of life, property and personal liberty to the people and provides safeguards against deprivation thereof by any individual, body or state. The adoption of the Constitution on 26 January 1950 did not disturb the existing structure of courts for dispensation of justice. The uniformity of judicial structure was preserved by placing criminal law and procedure, succession, will, contracts, registration of documents, etc. in the Concurrent List. The Indian law and justice is based on the firm foundation of several sources like the Constitution, statutes, case law and customary law. Besides, there are rules, regulations and bye- laws. The judicial decisions of superior courts like Supreme Court and High Courts are also important sources of law. Local customs and conventions which are not against the principles of morality are duly taken into account by courts while administering justice. The judicial system in India is headed by the Supreme Court. Then there are High Courts for each state or group of states. They are followed by...

New speech Topics Essay on Reform of the United Nations

Jose John May 23, 2013 No Comments
Reform of the United Nations The United Nations Organisation (UNO) was established after the Second World War, on 24 October 1945 to maintain international peace and security, promote friendly relations among nations, achieve international cooperation on economic, social and cultural issues, promote respect for human rights and solve disputes among nations peacefully. As the structure and methods of the UN remain old, there is a call for reforms of the world body. The major reforms relate to the expansion of the Security Council. The present Security Council has five permanent members having the veto power- China, France, Russia, United Kingdom and the United States. Making them the permanent members was recognition of the fact that these nations were big powers and could plunge the world into a major war. Since violent disagreement among these great military powers could start a major war, it was decided that if there was no unanimity among the five big powers on a decision relating to international security, that resolution could not be enforced. There are 10 non-permanent members of the Security Council, making the total 15 members. Each member- permanent or otherwise-holds the presidency of the Council for a one-month period, on a rotating basis. The non-permanent members are elected for two years...

New speech Topics on ‘India: An Emerging Power in the World’

Jose John May 23, 2013 No Comments
India: An Emerging Power in the World Rare are the moments in history when a nation suddenly captures the imagination of the world. For India, those rare moments have arrived. The country is achieving a high economic growth of over 8 per cent of its GDP annually, on a consistent basis.  In fact, India’s economic growth rate is second highest in the world-next only to China. The developed world has been left behind. The two Asian giants-India and China have today turned the leaders of growth of the global economy. One can get the measure of India’s resurgent economy from the fact that the world GDP growth is around 4 per cent. For advanced countries, the growth rate is around 3.5 per cent, while India is maintaining its GDP growth around 8.5 per cent of its GDP. The economic experts feel that the average world’s growth rates could have been dismal if they had not been boosted by the resurgent economies of India and China. It is the high growth rates of these two Asian giants that are keeping the global economy floating and preventing it from sinking in deep depression. India’s growth rate, though quite remarkable at present is about two per cent lower than that of China....

IELTS Writing Task 2 Essay Writing Sample #227 Nowadays some individuals behave in an anti-society way, such as committing a crime. In general, it is the society to blame. What causes the anti-social behaviors of individuals? Who should be responsible for dealing with it? It is unfortunate that in the midst of vast progress in every field of life there is also a growth in the anti-social behavior. People commit crimes and have become less respectful of each other. In the following paragraphs, I shall analyze some causes of this phenomenon and suggest some ways forward. Today we live in an era of technology in which the whole Earth has shrunk and become a global village. Everybody is connected to everybody through telephone lines and the internet but the warmth of relationships has taken a back seat. Most people have more than enough wealth, comfort and freedom but their hearts desire even more. To satisfy their hearts greedy people choose unethical means such as committing petty and serious crimes. People have become selfish, isolated and indifferent and do not think twice before doing anything wrong. Each person is busy in his own quest for more. The changing family structure is another big cause of this phenomenon. Earlier, people lived...

IELTS Writing Task 2 Essay Writing Sample #227 Some countries have introduced a law to limit working hours for employees. Why is this law introduced? Do you think it is a positive or a negative development? There are countries in the world such as USA, Canada, Australia and many more where a person cannot work for more than 40 hours a week. In my opinion, it is a positive development. In the following paragraphs, I shall discuss why this law was introduced and my arguments to support my views. This law was mainly introduced with a view to protecting the economic rights of the workers, and preventing exploitation. It is seen that in places where there is no such law, employees are exploited and instead of a normal working from 9am to 5pm, they are made to sit in offices from 9am to 9pm at no extra pay. Many other benefits of this law such as improvement in the physical and mental health of the employees and better family relations automatically followed. This law is beneficial because, in this fast moving world of today, people have become workaholics. In order to satisfy their material desires, they are forgetting to draw a line between work and family. If working hours...

IELTS Writing Task 2 Essay Writing Sample #226 The major cities in the world are growing fast, as well as their problems. What are the problems that young people living in cities are facing with? Give solutions to these problems.? The world is steadily becoming more urban, as people move to cities and towns in search of employment, educational opportunities and higher standards of living. Urbanization creates opportunities and challenges on one hand and gives rise to different types of stresses and problems on the other. Rapid urbanization is coupled with the fact that nearly half of this population is below the age of 25. This essay shall deal with the problems faced by the youth in the cities and also suggest some ways forward. The main problems faced by youth and everyone else in the rapidly expanding cities are because of pressure on the resources such as land, water and infrastructure like public transport, places, health care, law and order etc. There is an increased demand for land which pushes the property prices. This also leads to encroachment of pavements and creation of slums. There is little basic infrastructure for youth to access, ranging from parks and community centers, to basic services such as health, training and education....

The world is steadily becoming more urban, as people move to cities and towns in search of employment, educational opportunities and higher standards of living. This situation can cause serious problems in both, villages and cities which I shall discuss in this essay and also suggest some ways forward.

Many people who leave school hold a negative attitude towards learning. Why does this happen? How to solve the problem? It is a harsh reality of today that many students are not satisfied with their education at school and have a negative attitude when they leave school. In this essay I shall discuss some reasons for this phenomenon and suggest some ways forward. The first and foremost reason is that even after having graduated from school they are not sure of getting a suitable job. They see examples of their seniors around them who are still struggling to find jobs and even those who have found jobs are being underpaid and exploited. Another reason for their negative attitude towards learning is that their course of study was forced upon them by their parents and their aptitude was not taken into consideration. For example, a student who wants to make his career in the field of music is forced to study engineering cannot be expected to be positive about his studies. Another important reason is that the teacher-taught relation is very strained these days. The ugly claws of commercialism have crept into the field of education. Education has become a business and the student is the customer. Teachers are biased...

Studies suggest that children spend more time watching TV than they did in the past and spend less on doing active or creative things. Why do you think it is the case? What measures and methods can be used to tackle with it? Laurence J. Peter has rightly said that ‘Television has changed the child from an irresistible force to an immovable object.’ After coming home from school, children spend a lot of time in watching TV instead of playing outdoor games and pursuing other creative hobbies like in the olden days. In the following paragraphs, I shall discuss the causes of this phenomenon and also suggest some ways forward. The first and foremost cause of this is that due to the satellite TV, this medium is available all the time. So much so, that some channels are exclusively dedicated to children. This has made it very easy for the parents who use TVs as baby sitters. Secondly, parents are busy to cope with the demands of the fast paced life of today and after coming home after a hectic days work do not have the energy to spend time with their children. In earlier times, there were very few programs for children and because of slower life, even...

The gap between the rich and the poor is becoming wider, the rich more richer, the poor even more poorer. What problems can the situation cause and give the solutions? In this day and age, the gap between the affluent and the needy has increasingly widened. Such situation can be found not only between the developed and developing countries, but also among people of the same country. In this essay, I will analyze some possible problems caused by this and suggest some ways forward. The most significant problem is that a vicious cycle emerges from which the poor find it difficult to come out. In order to make both ends meet both parents have to work for supplementary income and the children are left in the house unattended. Their future becomes blurred as they don’t get quality education. This deprivation of the children is very high in ultra poor families. Furthermore, poverty and conditions resulting from poverty such as lack of education leads people to lawlessness and violence (e.g. robbery, theft, kidnapping, rape, murder, gang war, and drug addiction). Their pent-up desires for the finer things in life find a common outlet in the commission of crimes. The underdeveloped economies of Asia and even America are full of high...

In most of the societies, the role of mother and father differs. What are the causes of this difference? What will be the parental roles in future? (IELTS essay that came on 4th April 2009, India. ( Essay was written by Aastha and she scored 7.5 bands in writing) Families are the building blocks of the society. Parents play an incredible, crucial and indispensable role for the development of children. Fathers and mothers both have an individuality and are equally responsible for the growth of the child physically, mentally and emotionally. But still most of the societies have a different thinking that their role differs. So here I would like to discuss the reasons of these differences. In most of the societies especially the remote areas and villages people believe that role of mother s just to give birth to a child and look after child’s schooling, eating and home works and father is the one who brings the money for bread and butter and doesn’t have to do anything with the child’s care. Due to this women are deprived of working out and even the education. First and foremost reason for these differences is the people are illiterate and 60% of the people are still below the poverty...

An increase in production of consumer goods results in damage of the natural environment. What are the causes and possible solutions? Today we live in an era of continuously increasing consumer demand. This rate of consumption is increasing at an alarming rate. This essay shall deal with the causes of increase in production goods and how it affects the environment and suggest some ways forward. The first and foremost reason for the increase in production of consumer goods is the burgeoning population of today. More people lead to more demand. Secondly, because of globalization people are flooded with choices. When they see a new product they want that too. What is more, the buying capacity of people has gone up because of developing economies. Finally, the manufacturing industries are producing cheaper consumer goods by compromising with quality. These are affordable by the common man but the quality is so bad that they cannot be repaired. Mostly they have to be discarded after some time of use. The most serious effect of this phenomenon is on the environment. Our landfill sites are filling up with non bio-degradable wastes. It is also leading to pollution. Destroying used plastic is becoming a major problem everywhere. Even the recycling of plastic needs a...

Nowadays, people always throw the old things away when they buy new things, some people claim that the broken things should be repaired and used again. What factors cause this phenomenon? What effects the phenomenon leads to? Modern culture is a consumerist one. It is also known as ‘disposable culture’ or ‘use and throw’ culture. In this essay I shall deal with the causes and effects of this phenomenon. The most important reason leading to this phenomenon is the consumerist society we belong to today. We are flooded with choices and we want to buy the latest models of things and the latest fashion of clothes. Even the buying capacity of the average person has increased because of developing economies. Secondly, in order to buy more and more things, people have become workaholics and therefore they don’t find time to get things repaired. Finally, the manufacturing companies are compromising quality when they are doing mass production of things. So the things stop functioning very soon and sometimes the repair is costlier than the product. So, naturally, repair has taken a back seat. The most serious effect of this phenomenon is on the environment. Our landfill sites are filling up with non bio-degradable wastes. It is also leading to pollution....
