Short Essay on Sweet Are the Uses of Adversity

If we have gotten a lot in our lives for which we did not struggle at all, then we should consider ourselves very lucky because, in today’s world, you need to grind, you need to struggle, you need to be at your best to achieve something in your life. And the quote “sweet are the uses of adversity” literally tells you the same thing that struggling hard for something is not bad every time because struggling makes us a better human being and when we fight with a situation and come out winning, it makes us even stronger a man than we ever were. The quote can be explained with a few examples, here are they:

  • Suppose you are arguing with your boss because he has asked you to do something that you have never done, and you know you will struggle to complete that task. Now here is the point when you have completed the task without anyone’s help, here you will get this quote because you know that you will be better than before and Sweet are the uses of adversity is perfectly written.
  • Here we will take an example of your crying because you lost a friend who you felt was the backbone of your business and without whom you can’t run your business, and then suddenly you feel that you are actually doing better without him. It will be because when you will struggle for a few days without him, you will know more about the business and thus you will do better than ever before.
  • Here we will take an example of a child dreaming about buying a Mercedes. The struggle he will do to achieve his dream one day will pinch him very much each and every day. But when he achieves that dream that would be the best day of his life and that day he will recognize the meaning of struggle.
  • An army man struggles every day before joining the army, and when he joins the army and gets to wear the attire of an army man, that day he comes to know the meaning of his struggle.
  • A UPSC aspirant studies every day without even knowing whether he will be able to achieve his dream rank or not. But when he gets the rank, then he comes to know about the struggle he has done.

These were the few best examples that where the quote “Sweet are the uses of adversity” quote suits the best. Struggling is not a bad thing, as a winner never complains about the struggle that he has done.

Holidays are fun, and there would rarely be a person who spends his holidays sitting at his house, and I am not from those rare species at all, I am a fun loving person, and I like to travel a lot whenever I get some holidays in my busy schedule.

  • I always had a dream of enjoying my holidays by going to Leh-Ladakh on a bike, and I am very happy that I lived my dream to the extent that no one can ever match.
  • Going from Punjab to Kashmir on a bike was a lot of fun. It took me more than a day to reach my destination as the destination is around 900 km from my hometown and also I was alone, so my body needed rest too.
  • I kept feeding myself with energy drinks and healthy food so that I don’t suffer from body pain during any interval of time. And when I reached there, my happiness had no levels. It is such a beautiful place that if we do not go to such a place, we can only watch sceneries like it on Google.
  • Mountains and hills covered with forests and bridges built on lakes and rivers literally gave me Goosebumps when I crossed them.
  • The motive was not only to visit the marvelous place but was also to taste the delicious food that Kashmiris have to offer. So as expected, Kashmiri food was out of the world, just amazing and when I asked for the recipe of the Mutton that I had, the vendor shocked me by saying that he had only added salt and Red chili powder which made such a delicious mutton which I also tried making at my home after returning but the taste never came out to be so delicious like the original. It took me seven days to complete my journey and come back, I was tired, but the memories that I had created after visiting a heavenly place like Leh-Ladakh, were just amazing.

This was how I spent my holidays, everybody loves to travel, and hence it can be said that holidays are meant for traveling only.

Short Essay on Saving Money

Saving money is something that we should all practice. However, most of us fail to save money as we try to maneuver around the little earnings we get. This should not be a discouraging factor. With a well laid-out budget and reduced expenses, it is possible to adopt the habit of saving money.

Why we should save money

  • Emergency cushion. An emergency fund is conceivably one of the most important reasons why we should save money. Having an emergency fund can be a lifesaver by helping you sort out unexpected expenses without sinking into debt.
  • The cost of going to college gets higher every year. Many people are also going back to school for their masters’ and doctorates. Early saving for education will ensure that you do not delay your dreams.
  • Retirement. Early saving for retirement ensures that you don’t have to save much in the future giving you room to invest in other things. With a continuous contribution to a retirement savings fund, your money grows by earning interest.
  • Financial freedom. This is the ultimate goal for most people. Saving money helps you achieve financial freedom by allowing you to have options.
  • Bad times. This is not the same as saving for an emergency fund. Saving for bad times means that you can save enough money to cater for your expenses for six months in case of anything for example loss of employment.
  • Sinking funds. Saving up for a sinking fund is necessary for future expenses like car repairs and house improvements. It ensures that you do not keep dipping into your emergency fund whenever such costs arise.
  • Vacations and other luxuries. It is also essential to save money to have fun. A holiday that is well planned and saved for ends up being more fun and relaxing.

Conclusion

The thought of saving may appear to be deceptively simple, but it is a discipline that needs to be practiced over and over. Money matters require a definite plan, and when it comes to saving, much thought should be put into it if one aims to get the most benefits from saving money.

Whenever there is a match who live telecast is being shown, I never skip watching it no matter how much difficulty I have to face.

  • He is known to be the most talented batsman of our country, and some even say that he is the most talented around the world. Initially he struggled to play cricket but he was given chances, and fortunately, he scored big on those chances and became an essential member of Indian cricket team.
  • He is from Mumbai, and he recently got married to Ritika Sajdeh who is known to be his lucky charm because every time she is present in the stadium, Rohit plays such a knock which is remembered for years. Example? We all might remember his innings of 209 against Sri Lanka in 2017, and it was Ritika and Rohit’s anniversary on that day where he gifted a perfect double century to her wife who was present in the stadium praying for him all the time.
  • Rohit Sharma is a brand ambassador for a lot of companies, and I try to buy all the things that he sells on the Television.

For breakfast, I cook four eggs omelet with a cup of chocolate flavored oats. For my lunch, I cook two cups of rice with a palm full of spinach and around 150 grams of chicken. And for my dinner, the same meal as lunch follows but the rice is not there for dinner.

  • India has one of the most fertilized lands due to which a lot of grains, and other fruits and vegetables get exported to lots of other countries.
  • India has a vast population, and we are in the second position in terms of maximum population. However, I will consider India as a country of 1.3 billion minds, and if we combine these 1.3 billion minds, there wouldn’t be a single country ahead of us in any field.
  • India is ahead a lot of countries in many sports. In cricket and Badminton, the top-ranked male players are from India. And India is continuously winning lots of medals and trophies in various other sports as well.
  • India has the most diversified culture as in every corner of the country, you will get to hear different folk songs, you will get to eat different food items, and you will get to see people wearing a different kind of attires.

Short Essay on Sweeper

A sweeper is technically a person who sweeps the land allotted to him for the purpose that there shouldn’t be any kind of dirt or litter in that land. For the cleaning purpose, that person can use his bare hands, some tools for cleaning or he can use the latest technology and sweep the area with electric sweepers available in the market now. No matter how the land is swept, the important point is that the land should be swept every day in order to attain a better environment.

We all know that there are several diseases in medical science which occur due to getting in touch with excessive pollution and sweeping is the only way with which one can get away from various kinds of pollutions.

Sweeping will also help in bettering the atmosphere because sweeping the land on a daily basis means that we wouldn’t find any litter on the streets and thus we can have a better atmosphere and when we will look around, we will feel that we are living on a better surface in a better city as all the litter, dirt, garbage would be kept at a separate land made for that purpose only.

If the land gets swept every day everywhere, there would be a fewer number of health problems in the world than there are now.
