English_Master September 27, 2014 No Comments
JOURNEY IN A CROWDED BUS The bus stopped a little away from its regular stop. The whole crowd the passengers of the two buses rushed towards it. An earlier bus was cancelled. How to board the bus was a problem. There was no option but to use force. I used all the strength, pushing others back-all the abuses lashed at me- got in- very fortunate for the bus moved as soon as I managed a standing seat between the rows of sitting seats. Yes I’ll call it a standing seat for it was not possible to move even an inch from the space I was occupying. I tried to see out. None was left. All had managed to be in that black hole. Will you like to call the passengers men and women? No they were just jute bags filled with flesh and bones. Poor bags are loaded by others. These bags loaded themselves. Jute bags won’t mind if they are placed one upon the other. But these bags of skin grumbled. It was June. The atmosphere at the bus-stand was very hot. But now all the passengers were adding to the heat inside. Even hell might have been cooler. I! No everyone was thirsty now. Water? It was...

Short Essay Writing Topic on AIR POLLUTION

English_Master December 7, 2013 No Comments
Essay Writing on AIR POLLUTION Scientific development in developed countries has gone as fast as population growth in underdeveloped countries. The two factors are equally responsible for pollution of different kinds. Increase in production means increase in factories, mills, petro chemical set ups and huge industrial complexes. Almost all these belch out smoke that pollutes the air inside the complex and of the neighboring area. Many factories manufacture deadly chemicals and fertilizers. The worst tragedy in the chemical industry took place in Bhopal in 1984. 45 tones of Methyl Isocynate(MIC) flew out of the Union Carbide Factory. The air was so polluted that 2500 people died the very day. Lakhs of people within an area of 40 km suffered from ailments of eyes, throat and lungs. Many such cases in small factories where only a few people are affected are never reported. With the increase in population we require more sources of transport. By 1994 more than 2 crore auto vehicles were registered in the country. Delhi was expected to have near about 25 lakh. In Delhi the 21st century begins with about 1 crore. These scooters, mopeds, cars, buses, and trucks increase the quantity of sulphur dioxide, other oxides, hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide in the atmosphere in cities...

New Speech Topics on ABUSE OF INDIAN CHILD

English_Master December 7, 2013 No Comments
ABUSE OF INDIAN CHILD There has been open abuse of children in a number of ways in India. Girls in early teens in Hyderabad and Kerala are married to Sheikhs from Arab countries. It went to such an extent that the Waqf Board had to ask the Moulvis to bring such pending marriages to the notice of the board before solemnizing them. The abuse of girls on the border of Maharashtra and Karnataka where girl child is offered to the temple of goddess Yellamma as Devadasi is nothing less than throwing her to the flesh market. The harassment of both male and female child in the bonded labor market is well known. Both are sexually assaulted by the employer and contractor. Same is the story of girls in the tribal belt where the child is a prey for the forest employees, contractors and even government servants. The condition of children is worse in city slums, footpath dwellings and Indian Jails. They are sexually exploited by the slum dadas-even neighbors in the slums and on foot paths in metropolitan cities. Since there are not many juvenile jails in India most of the child convicts are kept in regular jails. Sexual abuse is a regular feature. Hard core convicts and jail...

Short Essay Writing on A WEEKLY MARKET DAY

English_Master December 7, 2013 No Comments
A WEEKLY MARKET DAY Don’t rush. Drive slow. See the baby crossing the road, cried my sister. The driver slowed down the jeep. We were on the highway from Ranchi to Raigarh. But now at Patratoli the highway was overflowing with human beings of all ages- men, women, old and young –little children running on the road as if it was the courtyard of their house; and little babies trying to jump out of the laps of their mothers. I had seen weekly markets at different places. But the one at Patratoli- about half a kilometer long –as is a big regular market had come down to the roadside to be at the reach of the Vanvasis. Toys and toys and toys- all indigenous toys of wood, paper machine bamboo and even of stones. A three-wheel walkie for the kid to learn walking-a bird that would whirl in the atmosphere on a string- small wood toys- a whole platoon of soldiers with guns, a complete bands for the occasion of the marriage of your doll. The whole transport system- buses, trains, jeeps, cars, aeroplanes, ships and boats all are there to suit everyone’s pocket. At a little distance you will find an enthusiastic young man exhibiting some mechanized toys...

A VISIT TO A HISTORICAL MONUMENT- THE TAJ

English_Master December 7, 2013 No Comments
A VISIT TO A HISTORICAL MONUMENT- THE TAJ One has to attune one’s mind while passing from spiritual faith to mortal love. Holy Haridwar and Rhishikesh, the abodes of Saints were left miles and miles behind. I was sailing on the clouds of fancy. My soul was pining to see the monument that has immortalized the love between Shajahan and Mumtaz Beghum. My impatience changed into curiosity when I came across the board ‘Taj View’. On the other side of the Jamuna the ‘Dream in Marble’ appeared at a distance and was gone in a minute. An hour and we would be face to face with this seventeenth century monument. Entering the huge red stone gate you reach a platform, and the whole panorama of Taj complex is before you. A few stairs down-the canal leads you to the glamorous building. It is flanked by Cyprus trees. There are fountains in the middle. But they do no sprout as those of the Vrindavan Gardens do. They are the serene symbols of a tomb. The Taj stands on a raised platform. The octagonal shining white building has a perfect symmetry. In the big hall Shajahan enjoys eternal sleep with his wife Mumtaz. The two graves are surrounded with a beautiful...

Short Essay on A MORNING SCENE IN MY TOWN

English_Master December 7, 2013 No Comments
A MORNING SCENE IN MY TOWN The soul of William Wordsworth experiences bliss when he looks at London from the West minister Bridge. His lips brimming with joy move in the appreciation of The beauty of the morning: silent, bare,        Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie        Open unto the fields’ and to the sky All bright and glittering in the smokeless air. That is what the city was to the great bard of nature on September 3, 1802. The industrial revolution had not yet made the city dirty. The poet still saw the glimpses of the nature in the flow of father Tames when at the end of the sonnet he says. The river glided at his own sweet will: Dear God! The very houses seem asleep; And all that mighty heart is lying still! That is what I too feel when from the roof of my house I look at the houses in the lanes and bye lanes – all leading to the roads. Peace and tranquility reigns supreme. The lanes look like small streams flowing to meet the river of the main road. The roads lead to the high way- they are not yet awake, the eye lids have yet to open. The...

Essay Writing on THE GUJARAT EARTHQUAKE

English_Master December 7, 2013 No Comments
A GREAT NATURAL CALAMITY ‘THE GUJARAT EARTHQUAKE’ “Saare jahan se accha” was silenced within a moment. There was no hue and cry – just a rumbling – the earth shook violently devouring 400 girls and boys who were marching towards the Town Hall in Anjar at 8.46 to celebrate the Republic Day on 26th January 2001 – The first Republic Day of the millennium. It was a festive occasion. There was fun, enjoyment, a general sense of well being and patriotism in the town. Students led the rally with teachers from various schools happily following them. Old men, young men, women and traders waved at the rally. Within a second all perished –three generations were under the huge debris. Three storied houses fell like nine pins. There was none to save the young ones – the blooming flowers of the nation. Nature offered them a mass grave- buried them with parents of many. The whole town of anjar 50 kms from Bhuj having a population of 65,000 known for its vegetable dyes and knives was now a mass grave. No house was served from the fury of nature. The death toll was estimated not less than 25,000.Even after the fifth day at least 1,000 people lay buried under the...

New Speech Topics on A DAY WHEN EVERYTHING WENT WRONG

English_Master December 6, 2013 No Comments
A DAY WHEN EVERYTHING WENT WRONG It was a Sunday morning and I wanted to have a little more rest. But the dogs won’t stop barking. My room being by the side of the street it was I who had to face the gauntlet. I had only three hours’ sleep by five in the morning when the barking started. What throat the nature had provided this little canine with. They had no business to invade my dream land. But they did. The green lush sea shore, the distant boats dancing on sea waves, the coconut trees inviting the travelers to have a drink from the green fruit, I just enjoyed nature at her best- the scene changed. With a prince’s robe I entered the palace in the forest where the princess was asleep for the last hundred years in her golden surroundings just waiting for me to transform her with a touch. Lo! She was awake – the whole palace was full of activities. The sleeping beauty was just to embrace me when the evil dog barked full throatily. The princess disappeared-no trees-no sea-no dancing boat. I was there in the corner of my room. Let curse fall on the small canine that spoiled my morning. Mother won’t give...

Persuasive speech topics on An incident I would like to forget

English_Master August 3, 2013 No Comments
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...

English_Master August 2, 2013 No Comments
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...

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...

Short Essay Writing on a Cricket Match I have seen

English_Master August 2, 2013 No Comments
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...
