Teachers are the ones who show us the right path and help us be successful in life. Teachers are an important part of our society. They educate us about science, study, moral values and about practical life. They make a person educated and a good human being. Teachers are the ones who help students to become a doctor, scientist, engineers, etc. I respect my all teachers. Every teacher has a different way of teaching and expressing his or her knowledge. The same thing may be easy to understand for one student whereas very difficult for the others.
My favourite teacher is George sir. He is our maths teacher. He is very punctual and does not like students to be late in his class. He explains every topic very nicely and deeply. He teaches us with a great interest and genuinely wants to see his students getting success in their life. He also motivates us regularly which is very important for a student to keep the focus on studies. He is very friendly with us, and we share our doubts with him frankly. He also helps us with our personal problems other than studies. He is one of the best teachers in our school. He tries to do his best to get our best result. He is a very good teacher, and I am lucky to be one of his students.
Sports and games are very important for a person to keep the body fit and healthy. Outdoor games like badminton, hockey, cricket etc. help in doing physical exercises whereas indoor games like chess boost our mental ability. I like to play both outdoor and indoor games.
My favourite game is badminton. Badminton is a very interesting game to keep the body healthy and active throughout the day. It requires energy, speed and concentration to play badminton. Playing badminton is a good way of entertainment as well as doing exercise at the same time.
I started playing badminton in my childhood with my friends. The competitive nature of this game makes it even more exciting. It is played with a pair of rackets and a shuttlecock made of feathers. Minimum of two players is required to play this game. The badminton court is of rectangular shape and divided into two halves by a net.
People also make their career in badminton. I like badminton because it makes me feel fresh and energetic. It also gives me the opportunity to spend time with my friends and close ones. It is an exercise for the whole body and keeps the mind fresh and invigorated. Playing badminton on a regular basis is very helpful for me.
I like all the festivals. But amongst all, I love Holi. It is a festival when everyone becomes a child for one day. People play and enjoy without stress for a day. Holi is a traditional Hindu festival celebrated to mark the victory of good over evil. It is a festival of colours. It begins on the last day of Phalgun month of the Hindu calendar.
People collect woods, sticks and straws from the road or forest, and burn them on the night of Holika-Dahan. Next day is the day of colours. People enjoy the day by throwing coloured water on each other, dancing, singing loudly, drink bhaang and eat delicious foods. In the evening, people gather, have fun and spend good times. It unites everyone, and the people forget their fights and anger in the jolly environment of the festival.
People do childish activities during the festival like dancing and singing loudly with coloured clothes on the streets.
Festivals have traditional values and are also important for the well- being of the society. Because of Holi, people take a break from their busy schedule and enjoy the day with the close and loving ones without any responsibility and anxiety. It also gives a reason for people to come from distant places and meet their relatives and share love and compassion.
Reading books is my favourite hobby. Books are the best friend of any person. They provide a lot of information and expand our knowledge. There are books available for every field humans have discovered like science, astrology, stories, plants, etc. I like to read science fiction, detective stories and unsolved mysteries of the world.
I have read many books. Among those books, my favourite book is The Hound of the Baskervilles. It is written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It is a very interesting detective story. It has two famous fictitious characters – Sherlock Holmes and Dr James Watson. These two characters solve the murder mystery of the case. The way they unfold the secrets and mysteries is very interesting and entertaining.
Books can be interesting and boring according to the interest of the reader. The same boring book according to a person may be a very interesting book for the other reader. It all depends on the reader what does he or she wants to read or know. I am interested in knowing the mysteries of the universe. That’s why I am fascinated towards these books. I enjoyed a lot while reading this book, as it is one of my favourite books.
My father is a very kind person. He helps other people in need if he can. He is a science teacher. He cares about the family a lot and is the sole breadwinner in our family. He takes care of our education, needs, health, etc. As he is a teacher, he focuses more on our studies and discipline. He is very time conscious and punctual. He does not like people who don’t value their time and waste it.
He has always motivated me whenever I lost confidence. He has given me support after many failures in my life. I can trust that he will help me in difficult situations and will not leave my side. He understands me and is my friend. I can tell him my stories and problems very frankly. He is a self-dependent person.
My father gives me suggestions whenever I am confused or not able to choose the right path. He tells me about his own experiences and struggles. He is a very polite, intelligent and generous person. He has a good sense of humour and recognizes my fake friends before I do. I want to become a good human being like him and follow his values, morals and ethics.
Every ambitious person has at least one dream. Life without ambition and a dream is useless and boring. The dream is what a person is passionate about. The dream may be anything like becoming a scientist, a doctor, a cricketer, a successful businessman, etc. My dream is to become a scientist and explore the mysteries of the universe and the world.
The motivation for my dream came during my childhood when my father used to tell me different scientific facts. I used to see science fiction movies and shows related to the universe on the discovery channel. My curiosity to know more and find answers to unsolved questions increased with time and became my dream.
To learn something, it is not always necessary to go to an institute. If a person wants to learn, he or she will definitely learn in this modern era of the internet. My aim is to become a part of NASA. This is the place where all my dreams can be fulfilled like going into space, doing research work on many interesting fields like the black hole, white hole, wormhole, galaxies, the parallel universe, etc. Where there is a will, there is a way. If a person is passionate about something, he or she will find a way on its own.
India is a diverse country with many religions and beliefs. It is the seventh largest country in the world. It is surrounded by water on three sides. The national bird, animal, flower, fruit and sports is the peacock, tiger, lotus, mango and hockey respectively. The national flag of India has three colours saffron, white and green with the Ashoka Chakra in the middle strap. The national anthem of India is “Jana Gana Mana”, the national song is “Vande Mataram”.
In India, people with different caste, culture and religion live together. There are many languages spoken across the country. People of the different religion celebrates their festivals peacefully. India is a big democratic country. New Delhi is the capital of India. There are four metro cities in India, New Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai. There are also other important big cities like Bangalore, Chandigarh, Mysore, etc.
My country is a land of villages. India has a large population of farmers. Because of farmers, we have a lot of grains, pulses, vegetables, fruits, etc. India is a secular country. Every religion is treated equally and given equal rights in the country. India stretches from Kashmir in the north to Kanyakumari in the South and from Kandla in the west to Kohima in the east. My country India is a very beautiful place to live, and it is full of diversity. India is a perfect example of ” unity in diversity”.
Everyone has friends. It is very difficult to find a real friend who really cares about one. I am lucky to have a best friend in my life, Sweta. She is more like a sister than a friend. We became friends during our school life. A person whose mentality matches with the other person become friends quickly because they can understand each other.
She has always proven her friendship whenever I needed her help. After all, a friend in need is a friend indeed. Whenever we meet, we talk with a lot of enthusiasm and frankly share secrets and problems with each other. Trust is the biggest factor in any relation. We trust each other, and that’s why we don’t hesitate to share our deep secrets.
We both have always stood for each other during tough times. When a person feels depressed or has too many problems in life, he or she wants to share it with someone close. If there is no such person, who actually bothers and cares about their problems, one starts feeling even more depressed. She gets involved in my problems to solve it as if they are her problems. A real friend tells the truth even if hurts and shows the right path. I am blessed to have such a friend who has always checked me whenever I was about to take wrong decisions.
A life without an aim is meaningless. The aim can be anything which requires dedication. A person can have an aim of becoming a doctor, scientist, businessman, etc. My aim in life is to become a scientist and pursue research work like knowing about the universe and unsolved mysteries of the world.
The biggest reason to become a scientist is my curiosity to know about the universe and the unknown things happening out there. A question which I am contemplating since my childhood is that if our universe started from a very small size, according to big bang theory, then what is beyond our universe. There must be some another space outside our universe because our universe is expanding continuously. Everyone has a role model. My role model is Stephen Hawking. His struggle and passion motivate me a lot. Knowing about our world and universe will help humans to become more advanced and predict the upcoming outside dangers.
A person should do whatever he or she is interested in doing. Otherwise, one will feel bored with his work. I know achieving what I desire is not an easy task. But my curiosity and passion will definitely help me in achieving my goal. I chose the engineering stream, and after it, I will start doing my research work. I will always try to discover something new and interesting.
POPULATION GROWTH – MEANING
Population growth is the increment on the sum of individuals in a society. Universal human populace totals up to around eighty-three million each year. The global community has increased from one billion in 1800 to 7.616 billion in 2018. It is expected to keep rising and surveys’ have put the overall population at 8.6 billion by mid-2030. A lot of communities with expeditious culture surge have low standards of living whereas many nations with a low percentage of people’s growth have higher standards of living.
The three principal reasons for international community advancement are fertility, population force and, mortality. The increment in life expectancy around the globe can reduce the declining mortality that you witness in every country. These subsidize to a gain of the universe populace.
