Essay Writing on ‘A HOUSE ON FIRE’ It was a hot day in summer. I was having a nap after my lunch. A sudden noise awoke me. I heard people shouting ‘fire’. I looked out through the window and saw clouds of smoke rising from a house only a few yards away from my house. I was horrified and stood still. Soon I came back to my sense. I rang up the Fire Brigade and came out of my house. I rushed towards the burning house. A large number of people had gathered there. The flames were rising high. Thick curls of smoke were rising into the sky. The heat was so unbearable that nobody could go near the house. Some people were pouring buckets of water on the flames while others were throwing sand and dust. It was a double – storeyed building. Some of the inmates in the house were caught up in the first floor and were surrounded by flames. They were crying for help. Those inmates who were in the ground floor came out with burns and injuries. People were taking all the articles out of the house and throwing them out. The arrival of Fire Brigade was a relief to everybody. The fireman fought...

Persuasive speech topics on THE HAPPIEST DAY IN MY LIFE

English_Master August 3, 2013 No Comments
AN UNFORGETTABLE INCIDENT IN MY LIFE (or) THE HAPPIEST DAY IN MY LIFE Childhood is a very impressionable period in one’s life. One incident of my childhood is indelibly imprinted in my mind. From the time I was in standard V, my father was very particular that I should not only study my lessons but also participate in extra-curricular activities. According to his wishes, I participated in various activities at school. However, I could not do anything on my own. I did not dare to get on a stage alone to make a speech or sing, even when I knew that I had a moderate ability in these activities. My fear was that everyone would make fun of me and that I would not be good enough. One day I came across the line “The valiant never tastes death but once” and thought what a coward I was. I decided that, whatever might happen, I should participate in the next elocution competition in my school and put an end to my father’s unvoiced disappointment and to my cowardice. So, after much preparation, still with my knees knocking against each other, I participated in my first individual programme- the elocution competition connection with the school youth festival. To my surprise,...

Persuasive Speech Topics on Anti-Social Activities

English_Master August 2, 2013 No Comments
ANTISOCIAL OR ANTINATIONAL ACTIVITIES The normal and healthy way for an individual to earn a living id by engaging himself in an activity which is socially useful and accepted by the society. A person may earn his living as a labourer, trader or as a producer. But when a person produces or trades in a way which is socially harmful, that activity is wrong and illegal. Thus, an activity which is not supported by laws of the country or the society, and which is harmful to the economic and social interests of the nation, can be termed as an antisocial or antinational. Such activities destroy the very structure of the country’s social structure. When life become more and more complex, and society tends to urbanisation, more people are tempted to become rich quickly by resorting to evil practices. Some of the antinational practices prevailing today are smuggling, bribery, profiteering and drug trade and addiction. Smuggling means importing goods illegally from other countries and exporting goods illegally to other countries. The smugglers avoid paying export and import duties to the government and this causes the government heavy losses. Various articles like gold, silver, electronic equipment, arms and narcotics are brought into the country through illegal channels. The main items of...

There is hardly any traffic on the roads. Once can enjoyed one’s walk peacefully. As one walk’s, one’s cares and anxieties drop away. An early morning walk is undertaken before the day dawns.

Short essay Writing on a Football Match I have Seen

English_Master August 2, 2013 No Comments
A FOOTBALL MATCH I HAVE WITNESSED My favourite game is football. So I never miss the opportunity to watch a football. The European Cup contest of 1996 was held in England in June 1996. All the matches were very interesting. But the most exciting match was played between Germany and the Czech Republic at Wembley Stadium in London. I watch this match on the television. Germany prevailed over the Czech Republic by 2 to 1 the strength of a golden goal by Bierhoff in the European Football Championship. The Czechs took the lead in the second half and Bierhoff who came in as a substitute equalised to stretch into extra time. The match- winner goal came in the 7th minute of the extra time. The two goals were born from his leg in this crucial match. Germany forced a corner in the opening minute and won a free kick deep inside the Czech half after Mehmet Scholl was fouled by defender Miroslav Kadlec. But they failed to capitalise on either opportunity or on the two more corners they forced in the first seven minutes. The Czechs made a dangerous attack in the 13th minute. Kuka sent in a cross from the left. Poborsky met it but volleyed over the...

A CRICKET MATCH I HAVE WITNESSED The Wills World Cup Cricket 1996 was held in India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka simultaneously. I witnessed the quarter final match played between the two arch-rivals, India and Pakistan, at Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore. The Indian overcame the defending champions, Pakistan, in a nerve-rattling match. Chasing a mighty target of 288 in 49 over’s for victory, despite some whirlwind hitting in the over’s by openers Aamir Sohail and Saeed Anwar, Pakistan fell short of the target by 39 runs. India opted to bat first. The opener Navajot Sidhu cracked a brilliant 93 and Ajay Jadeja provide the late thrust with 45 in 25 balls, India piled up 287 for eight in their allotted 50 over’s. With India electing to bat on a placid strip in front of a packed stadium, openers Sidhu and Sachin Tendulkar added 90 runs in 21 over’s in a planned manner. The India opening pair started on a cautious note. The pair kept up a rate from the fifth to the tenth over. Sidhu  had more of the strike and once he settled down, he played his shots with authority in his inimicable style. He delighted the packed, knowledgeable and supportive crowd with two successive fours behind the wicket...

Essay Writing about A BOOK I HAVE READ

English_Master August 2, 2013 1 Comment
A BOOK I HAVE READ Of all the possessions in the world, books are the most valuable, especially to those who are the lovers of books. Books contain a priceless treasure which friends cannot match, brothers cannot give and time cannot destroy. A good book is a good friend. Many books written by great authors led to the downfall of many empires and rise of new nations. “The Social Contract” written by Rousseau brought about the French Revolution. Karl Marx’s “Das Kapital” gave birth to the communist movement and socialist governments. Reading is my hobby and I have read many books. The book I read recently is the Malayalam version of the Ramayana. This great book has acted as a source of culture and civilization for more than two thousand years. It is written in a simple language which any one can understand. The story is simple, but enlightening. The book has many charms of its own. It has a philosophical value. It provides a moral code for the people to follow. The story is centred round Rama, the legendary hero of the ancient India. Its starts in the kingdom of Ayodhya in the north part of India in the early period of the Aryan settlement. As directed by...

Speech on ‘Drug Abuse’ Drug Abuse is one of the banes of modern society. It has hit all regions and all sections of our society. It is found in rural and urban areas, among poor and the rich, among the men and women. But it is most overwhelmingly practiced by young boys and girls in hostels in almost all educational and technical institution. Drug abuse is there in almost all the countries of the world. India is more vehemently a transit country as it is situated between the Golden Triangle comprising Thailand, Burma and Cambodia and Golden Crescent comprising Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran where most of the drugs, particularly opium and heroin are produced. Pakistan is the main centre of the world as far as the production of these drugs is concerned, and a large number of drugs pass through India to reach other countries. This takes place through drug mafia who has further links with formidable terrorists and smugglers. And in the process, many young man and women in our own country too fall victims to this diabolical habit. Pakistan, through its ISI, is indulging in a proxy war in Kashmir against India with the help of money earned through this drug mafia. Thus drugs and terrorism have...
