Standard of Education in Private Institutions
By : XYZ
Education these days has lost its standard. It has become just a business today. Private institutions, in the name of schools, colleges can be seen coming up everywhere, rather it is better to say that the private institutions are mushrooming at a fast rate. They are founded in a hurry, just to make financial benefits. Generally, they don’t have proper infrastructure. Most of the private institutions provide low quality education as they employ untrained staff, so that they don’t have to pay them a handsome amount in terms of salary. The management has nothing to do with the students’ learning standards. These institutions with inadequate library facilities and without teaching aids and qualified faculty produce such graduates who are unable to get good jobs as they don’t have the required knowledge. That’s not enough. Despite these flaws, they don’t compromise in terms of fees. They charge the fees exorbitantly. It is the need of the hour that the government should keep a strict check on the establishment of such fake or sub-standard institutions to save those students who get tricked into joining these institutions.
Question. Have you ever made a journey that was unforgettable in some way? What made it memorable? Write a paragraph on this.
An Unforgettable Journey
We mostly went to our village with our mother during our summer and winter vacations. However, once my aunt and cousins also accompanied us. This was one of the best train journeys of my life. We took the top berth after having the delicious biryani which our mother had cooked for us.
We had already planned that we will stay awake until late at night to enjoy the journey in each other’s company.We began the fun by playing cards. As we finished a game or two, two boys sitting in the middle berth asked us if they could join us. Playing cards is always fun with more players. After playing cards, we began a game of dumb charades.
Since, we had been playing for almost four hours now, we felt hungry and it was snack time. We stealthily took out chips and biscuits from our bags. We chatted, cracked jokes and laughed heartily as we ate snacks. This journey gave us memories to cherish forever.
Question. Write an article in 100-120 words on ‘Damages caused by Deforestation’. You are Ram/Rani.
Damages Caused by Deforestation
By : Rani
Trees are said to be the life- givers to human beings. But human beings are not paying any heed to this fact and are cutting them mercilessly and endlessly to satisfy their needs.
With our population rising at a tremendous rate, the trees and forests are vanishing faster than the blink of an eye.A time will come when the earth will be devoid of trees.
Deforestation has led to many serious problems such as depletion of the ozone layer. More pollution means more respiratory disorders, so on and so forth.
Therefore, it is our duty to make India a lush green country by planting more trees. Due to deforestation, the weather conditions have changed abruptly. Due to global warming, there is a great increase in temperature. Forests are the shelter of flora and fauna. With the cutting of trees of the forests, flora and fauna has been adversely affected. Trees prevent soil erosion but the felling of more trees has caused soil erosion. So, each and every place is turning into a barren wasteland. Moreover, floods have become frequent due to the same reason. If every single Indian takes a pledge to plant even one tree, we could again make our country, our India ‘GREEN INDIA’.

The Role an Ideal Teacher is Expected to Play
By : Abha
Teacher is the yardstick that measures the achievements and aspirations of the nation. A nation is what its teachers are. It is they who prepare the future leaders of a country.
If teachers are well-educated, knowledgeable, hardworking and intellectual and take keen interest in their job, then only success is ensured. The teachers should set example by being punctual, honest, sincere and upright. Role models are people who set good example by their conduct and by the words they speak. Teachers should instill strong ethical and moral code of conduct among students and on the other hand teach them about civic and democratic responsibility. They activate the minds of students. They bring to light the hidden and mental powers of students. A teacher is an engineer of soul. An excellent teacher must have patience and perseverance to become a role model.
Question. When people see a road victim, they just walk away without helping him. This is unbecoming of a responsible citizen. Write an article in 100-120 words on ‘Helping Road Victims’. You are Ram/Rama.
Helping Road Victims
By : Ram
Weak enforcement of laws, highway traffic, the growing congestion on roads and personal issues play a major role in the disposition of road accidents. Now-a-days, road accidents are very common-it is a dreadful fact but the more dreadful is the insensitive attitude of the people. When people see a road victim, they just walk away without helping him which may result in the loss of precious life. It just reflects the irresponsible attitude of the citizens. If a victim gets timely help, his life can be saved. It is our moral duty to help the needy. We can make a call for ambulance. We can take the victim to the hospital on our own. Sometimes timely help matters a lot. First-aid can be given on the spot. If we can’t do anything other than consoling and soothing the victim by accompanying him, it also counts a lot.
Now rules for hospitals have been passed that a victim should be attended first, later police enquiry will be done in case of accident. So, there is nothing to be afraid in a police-case. The utmost important thing, that is to be done in such a scenario is to bring social awareness through schools, media, traffic police campaigns and NGOs so that precious lives can be saved.

Environment—component of life–supports life–we damage environment–face global warming-damage ozone layer-melting ice-repair the loss.
Conservation of Environment
By : ABC
There is an all round degradation of human environment. People complain of scorching heat, respiratory problems and ill health. It is time to pause and consider the cause behind all this. Global warming is increasing due to greenhouse gases. There is an urgent need to bring about awareness regarding environmental concerns. Environmental pollution is the gift of galloping population, unplanned industrialization, mining and haphazard and faulty town planning. Indiscriminate felling of trees and deforestation to utilise more land for agricultural purposes have added to the problems.
Under these circumstances, it is essential to create awareness among all people to keep the environment clean and pure. Vacant spaces may be turned into green pastures with saplings and trees around them. Efforts should be made to maintain the ecological balance.
We can arrange mass rallies or walks to create public awareness and force the concerned authorities to take preventive action.
Question. One of the key messages of the Prime Minister’s Independence Day speech was ‘Clean India’. The Government has taken an initiative for cleaning the rivers especially ‘The Ganges’. The Government has also urged the people of India to realise the dream of ‘Clean India’. Write an article in 100-120 words mentioning the measures people can take for a cleaner and greener India.
Clean India, Green India
By : ABC
To fulfil Gandhiji’s and many other reformers’ dream of clean and green India, our Prime Minister Narendra Modiji emphasized on ‘Clean India’. On the occasion of Independence Day, his key message to fellow beings was to adopt it as the compulsory agenda.
In today’s scenario, we can see dust and dirt everywhere. Our surroundings are unclean. Our environment is in the constant grip of filth, squalor and garbage. There are heaps of garbage lying everywhere. Adding insult to the injury, even our sacred rivers are not spared. We are just worried about our own houses. We throw domestic as well as industrial garbage, dead bodies etc. in the same sacred rivers, e.g., the Yamuna, the Ganga, to whom we worship next to God.
This menace is not only making our atmosphere dirty but also making it difficult to get fresh air. The reason is that rapid mushrooming of industries and deforestation at a higher rate to establish these industries and new colonies has caused the density of oxygen to come down abruptly.
All of us are aware of these facts but until and unless each one of us wakes up to the problem and takes remedial steps, the dream of cleaner and greener India can’t be realised. Following the urge of Government also, we should plant more trees; keep our city, especially our rivers clean and pollution-free.

By : Shobita Arya

Question. Prices of food articles are increasing day-by-day and there is a wide gap between the wholesale prices and retail prices. Write an article in 100-120 words on ‘Rising Prices’ and give suggestions on how to control them. You may use the hints given below.
By : XYZ
Inflation is one of the major problems of the common man with the prices of commodities of daily use soaring high. And the worst thing is when food items get dearer, one is compelled to stretch oneself beyond one’s capacity to provide the necessities to one’s family.
In such circumstances the poor continue in their state of poverty but the repercussions on the middle class are high in the form of using up of their meagre savings or even incurring debts.
Inflation of food prices directly impacts the quality of nutrition available and hence the health of the human resource of the nation with a major chunk of the family income, being used up to run the kitchen. There is a severe cut down on the fund available for other important functions like the education of the children.
The government’s efforts of opening ration shops or fair price shops are grossly inadequate because the quality of grains available there is unfit for consumption and even those below the poverty line prefer not to access them. In such a scenario, substantial work needs to be done by the authorities in making food affordable and reducing the taxes on the basic necessities to bring down the contrast between the wholesale and retail prices. As for the common man; he can do his bit by avoiding wastage. Every grain, every speck of food needs to be valued!
