Persuasive speech topics on TRUTHFULNESS  “Truthfulness” means factual accuracy, or exactitude in speech. So, a truthful person is one who never deviates from the actual details of facts when he speaks about it. In other words, he is a person who never tells a lie. The word “honesty” has awider meaning: it includes both factual accuracy in speech and trustworthiness in one’s dealings with other people. So, an honest person is one who never tells lies, never cheats, never steals. Honesty and truthfulness are virtues that ennoble a person and enhance his dignity as a human being. Absolutely honest men are unfortunately very rare. Most people tell lies, occasionally atleast, for varios reasons.  Children tell lies to escape punishments. Criminals tell lies for the same reason. Some people tell lies for self-glorification. Many people tell lies for material advantage or financial benefit. Some people are instinctive liars, who have an inner compulsion to tell lies. A few people are kleptomaniacs who have an irresistable inner urge to steal things, though they do not need them. The proverb, “Honesty is the best policy”, seems to suggest that the practice of honesty is aimed at material gains. The word “policy” seems to suggest expediency rather than morality, as it could mean...

Persuasive speech topics about A RAINY DAY Rains are a great blessing to mankind. In an agrarian economy like India, they play a vital role in the economic progress. Sometimes they may prove to be curse when they cause floods. This year the summer season was unduly long and extremely hot. It was June and the schools were reopened. The scorching sun and the stifling heat had made our life unbearable. When the clouds appear on the sky, everybody become happy. When the south-west monsoon sets in, we get fairly heavy rains every day. But it seldom keeps raining round the clock. I remember a day in the last June when it rained for the whole day. When I woke up at six in the morning, there was no sunlight outside. The sky was overcast with dark and thick clouds. After some time a cool breeze began to blow. It seemed that rain was imminent. Then suddenly it started raining heavily. I came out of my room and stood on the verandha and watched the rain. Soon it started raining in torrents. I looked at our garden. There was water all round the house. No patch of grass could be seen. I knew that the school would not work...

Persuasive Essay Topics on My unforgettable Train Journey A journey by train is an interesting and educative experience. During the last summer vacation, I had the opportunity to travel from Dehra Dun to Lucknow with my friends. We reached the Dehra Dun station in time to catch the 1.50pm Train. Our train stood ready. Our seats were reserved and so we boarded the train leisurely and found our seats. There was a great rush at the station. After a few minutes, the grand blew his whistle and waved his green flag. Soon the train moved out of the station and our journey began. When the train crossed the signal point it began to catch speed. After five minute the train was passing through fields and gardens. The countryside of the Dehra Dun Valley through which we were passing was pretty, and so we enjoyed ourselves by looking through the windows. We saw green filed, trees, groves and forests from the running train. We also saw farmers ploughing the fields. We saw to our left the lower Himalayan hills and to the right the Siwalik range. We passed through green fields and then through beautiful forests. Everything looked bright and pleasant in the afternoon sunshine. Beauty and variety mixed in...

Persuasive speech topics on THE HAPPIEST DAY IN MY LIFE

Jose John 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,...

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...

Persuasive speech on ‘AN EARLY MORNING WALK’ Of all the recreations that men indulge in, a morning walk is the most rewarding. The air is fresh and free of dust and smoke. 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. In the early morning, nature is at its best. It is the time when nature sheds its darkness and enters the domain of light. A cool breeze is blowing and it invigorates the body and the soul. The green leaves of the tree whisper in the wind. Dew drops shine like pearls on the blades of the green grass and leaves of the trees. The tall trees appear as dark shadows. There is no din and noise. Only the sweet chirping of the birds pleasures our head and heart. A pause for a few moments to look at nature in the early morning hours brings us riot of colours all round. The flowers laden with dew dance merrily and spread their fragrance. So much colour is splashed on all sides. The aroma of their air gathered from the bushes, grassy patches and leaves of...
