Essay On My Room And My House

Essay On My Room And My House.East or West, home is the best. It is a famous old saying which is true to the hilt. I live in a small flat which was built by the L.D.A. My father owns it on hire-purchase basis and pays monthly instalments. When the house was allotted, it was only a one-room set. We were not yet born. As the family grew, in size, my father added one more room to meet the needs of the children.

It is a compact dwelling, in which we have all the facilities within the four walls. We have combined the bathroom and toilet and created a small kitchen. There are marble chips on the floor. We have covered the drawing-room with wall to wall carpet. The show case in the drawing-room has been tastefully decorated. All the greeting cards have been arranged very well in the centre.

Whenever we visit some historical place, we bring some momento from there and place it in the show-case. We have arranged the drawing room in such a manner that it can be changed into a guest-room. I have a folding study-table in a corner where I do my home work.

There is a box-type doubled bed in the bed-room. We have filled those boxes with our winter beds. The almirah in the corner, contains all our ward-robes. We have a T.V. set in one corner which we view at night. We never miss the news and the drama. We can use it with the help of remote control, sitting in our beds.


Although it is a very small flat yet I get all the comforts of life in it.

Essay On Things I Love Most

Essay On Five Things I Love Most,This world is full of many wonderful and lovely things. Man has been trying to mobilise the resources of his intellect for making various types of inventions and discoveries and thus endeavouring to make the things more lovely and worth enjoying. This process of beautifying the worldly things is a continuous process. There is no end to it. As, there are many beautiful and lovely things, it becomes very difficult to pick and choose.

Somehow. with the greatest care, 1 have selected five things which I would like to adopt in my future life.
First of all. I have a great love for Nature. I am fed up with this artificial and momentary pleasure which we derive from the city life. I am thinking of settling in some village where I will be able to enjoy Nature. I wish to make friendship with Nature because Nature can be a true friend and real guide of a man, and it never deceives a person who loves her.

Wordsworth, the great lover of Nature, has also acknowledged this fact in his poems. I am very much anxious to go and enjoy steep hills, greenery of the open valleys, cool breeze and other natural objects. There, I will find people who are quite different in nature from the city dwellers. Their motto of life is simple living and high thinking. Thus, I will have the privilege of coming in contact with simple and straight-forward people.

Secondly, I am very much interested in adopting 'teaching my profession. I am deeply pained to find illiteracy in Pakistan. For the successful functioning of democracy, it is essential that we should reduce the existent illiteracy. I have a great love for this profession. I want every young man and woman to get education. I here is a dire need for spreading education to every nook and corner of the country. I hope that, by selecting this pmfession, I would be serving the country in the best possible way.

Thirdly. I have a keen desire to read novels. Bushra Rehman. Shoaukat Khanwi, Fatima Surriya Bajia and Nasim Hijazi are my Iavourite authors. Novels are my favourite pastime. Novels widen the doors of knowledge. They give us an insight into the zig-zag ways of this world. Sometimes we are able to resolve many difficult problems with the help of knowledge got from the novels. We are able to chalk out many schemes which can be very useful in our day¬to-daN life.

I ourthly, I love my country. I can forego anything just for die honour of my country. If some one were to ask me to go to to' vigil land and serve there, and get a handsome salary. I would be tile first blunt young man to reject this offer. It is because I am very much fond of the ways of Pakistani life, the food. the sunshine, home. friends, parents and other relatives. Further, if I go to a foreign country for some remunerative employment. I will not be doing justice to my Motherland. To the land which has given birth to me. I owe an irrepayable debt. So, I am bound to forego everything lor it.

Last but not the least, I love my sweet home. It is rightly said: Last or West, home is the best. I live in a small house which does not provide all the modern facilities, still it is no less than a pahulise. I have been to my friends houses. I find ultra-modern decorations. Those houses have dining rooms, sitting rooms and bed rooms and very rich and lavish food is served. In spite of all this. I don't like that type of artificial life.
I have selected the above mentioned five things which are dearest to me and are the essence of my life and living.

Essay On My Ambition In Life

Essay On My Ambition In Life.People have their own dreams in life. Many aspire to be rich or to become business tycoons (magnates, big guns) . Some persons Ii dream of becoming leaders, politicians and social reformers. There are others who have a craze for becoming poets, writers and novelists while most of us generally have a desire of becoming engineers, doctors and scientists of great repute. There are a very few persons, who are happy-go-lucky by nature and have no clear- cut aim in their lives.

As for myself, 1 do not have very ambitious aims in my life. I do not wish to become a mill-owner or a multi-millionaire. The sole object of my life is to lead a life of simplicity and goodness devoted to the service of humanity. The life of a professional leader or a politician does not interest me, as most of such persons have grown parasites on the society.

1 am born of middle class parents, From the very beginning. I have been passing through the struggles of life. I have seen cutthroat competition in most of the professions. Its consequences have been far-reaching; people are demoralised. Examples are not wanting when we can find the engineers accepting big bribes. lawyers rescuing guilty persons or murderers and doctors demanding money from the patients at crucial stages of surgical operation.

Then what do I want to be? Indeed, from the core of my heart, I wish to become a teacher. The motto of this life, simple living and high thinking, inspires me to take up this profession. The noble ideals of the teachers in the ancient times are before me. I am fully aware of the difficult and hard life of a teacher. I know that a teacher is lotted to be poor. He -leads a life of drudgery, busy in correcting exercise-books or answer books of the students. There are no stirring events in his life.

lnspite of these hardships. I do not hesitate to become a teacher. I have my own reasons and considerations for this. From my' early childhood. I have developed a love for the young children:- To me. they are delicate and beautiful like the petals of a flower. I Feel that as a teacher. I can help the students in widening their out giving them knowledge. I will have the satisfaction of doing, an invaluable service to the country by producing better In/ens.

Moreover, the company of the young children can even help me in remaining young and fresh in thoughts and outlook. Besides tendering all these important services I will also have the means of subsistence. I have a great faith in: the life of a noble and ideal teacher, because teachers are the custodians of the highest value.

Essay On My Hobby

Essay On My Hobby.The word "Hobby" is derived from a "Hobby Horse" which is a stick fitted w ith a wooden horse and on which small children ride for their amusement. So, hobby is a useful work which can be taken up during leisure. Hobby means a useful work in which one takes interest and drives pleasure by doing it in spare time without any monetary benefit.

This occupation is quite apart from the regular work. There are many hobbies like gardening. stamp-collecting, coin-collecting, photography,, reading, etc. which one adopts according to one's taste and purse.It is a recreation from the exhaustion and fever of life/After a day's hard labour, not all persons can go to see the movie and Visit clubs for entertainment. Hobby provides a cheap source of entertainment and amusement.

Gardening is my favourite hobby through which I can see Nature and enjoy it. Nature is a true and dependent guide of man. Wordsworth contends that Nature never betrays anyone who loves her.
Ours is a big house at Shanti Niketan in Islamabad. There is open space for vegetation, fruits and flowers. I have grown flower plants of rose, lily and sun-flower.

The sweet fragrance of the flowers serves, as a tonic for my body and thus relieves me of becoming a prey to some disease. I have planted a few fruits also. There is adequate growth of vegetables in our compound. So, we seldom purchase any vegetable from the market.
Gardening provides me a good exercise for the day. It keeps me healthy, happy and fresh for the day's labour.

Gardening is my sincere friend and inspires me whenever I am in a depressed mood. Whenever I cast a glance over my small garden and see the beautiful flowers, my heart blossoms. Life is a strife, If we rest, we rust; if we work, we shine if we shine, the world gives us credit. Moreover, an empty mind is a devil's workshop. It is better that one should pass a very much busy life. Struggle in the life it self gives pleasure to a man.



Hobby, thus, is an interesting pursuit through which one derives pleasure. recreation and amusement in the leisure. In hobby. one sucks pleasure, feels exalted and mentally elated. Hobby removes the monotony and melancholy of mind. Rather. hobbies have a great educative value. Moreover, hobby gives a stimulus to better living.

When cleanliness word comes in our mind, our mind reminds the words like 'cleaning', 'cleaning services', 'clean house', 'maid' and most important 'health'. First we know the meaning of cleanliness. Cleanliness is the habit of keeping free of superficial imperfections.

Our Locality: Cleanliness is our social, important responsibility just like other social duties. Keeping our house clean is not the only requirement. We should think broadly for keeping our houses, neighbour areas, schools , foot-path, our body, our daily usable things etc. free of dirt and imperfections. Generally many have been noticed throwing  out dirt of their houses. We should keep clean our neighbour by assuring happiness of our neighbours by using local Dustbins. This will keep the area free of bacterial infections. The municipal persons should be contacted for regular evacuation of the Dustbin.

We must use cleaning agent like Bleaching powder etc at regular interval. Whenever we take out our shoes , we must clean our leg with soap with a little massage. This is very important ; which maximum of us avoid. It is like that the foundation of the house  ignored on which whole erection is standing.

Essay on the Importance of Clean Environment

Of late, environment has received a lot of attention. Not only intellectuals but even the ordinary men and women are becoming aware of the need to have a clean environment.


As a result, what is detrimental to environment is opposed today. Hundreds of developmental projects which are blind to environmental concerns are objected by the general public. ‘Save Narmada Agitation’ that is currently going on in western India is a shining example in this respect.

In its simplest connotation, the term ‘environment’ means the surrounding habitat of man. In its widest sense, it refers to the entire earth with its green forests, vast oceans, the layers of air and oxygen, etc. In its narrowest meaning, environment means the immediate surroundings of man – his home, work place, market, neighbourhood, etc. It also includes the atmosphere in which he lives.

The importance of good and clean environment cannot be described adequately. According to many scientists, the factor which influences the growth of individuals most is environment. But unfortunately, the various elements of environment such as, air, water, land, etc., are polluted and contaminated.

Urbanisation, industrialisation and over­crowded living have primarily been responsible for this menace. Pollution is also caused by vehicles, supersonic jets, smoke-producing factories, radio-active elements, etc. The careless dumping of solid wastes by households, factories, markets, commercial centres, etc., in the open places, streets and in the rivers have further aggravated the problem.

The polluted environment is a health hazard and causes several diseases and ailments. It ruins our chances of survival. Hence, an all-out attempt must be made to have a clean environment. This requires several corrective and preventive measures. One of the best ways to have a clean environment is to plant more trees.

Human beings, factories and vehicles pollute the air with carbon dioxide, monoxide and poisonous gases. But the oxygen which the trees give out lessens their harmful effect. Secondly, pollution caused by the dumping of wastes in streets, rivers, living places must be stopped at all cost.

This calls for individual and community efforts. The recent Supreme Court order in India, to close down those factories which dump their wastes in the Ganges, is indeed a right step in the right direction.

Thus, on the whole, people are becoming aware of the vital need to have a good and clean environment. The awakening of the general masses in this respect is a welcome sign and would make our world a better place to live in.

Essay On Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness

Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness. : 


By cleanliness we mean the habit of keeping physically and mentally clean.

A smartly dressed person with clean habits creates an impression on others. It usually reflects a clean character also. In other words, a person’s character can be assessed by the way he dresses.

If he is carelessly dressed, he will most probably be an unruly person. Similarly, if he is in the habit of dressing smartly, he tends to be clean in character also. This is the general rule although there are exceptions to it.

Men with good character are usually pious and god-fearing. They stick to certain morals in their life. Thus, having a god fearing or clean heart is the first step to being godly. In other words, godliness should begin from the heart.

One can have a clean heart only if he cultivates a good character. In other words, a good heart is moulded from a good character.


All religions insist on cleanliness before worship. This is because cleanliness is the first important thing in being near to god.

This proves that the proverb cleanliness is next to godliness is true to the core.

Essay On Games Playing

Essay On The Indoor Game I Like The Best Essay On Games Playing.There are many indoor games. Some are ancient, like chess and draughts. and some are modern inventions like ludo. Some are games of pure chance, like some aid games: and some are games of skill, like chess. All such games ale meant as amusements to pass the time, but some of them, while g.1" nig amusement give something more.I do not much like card-games; for I think that any game that depends mostly on chance, very soon loses its interest.

Of course.. there is a good deal of skill, or at any rate memory and shrewd guessing, required in some card-games, like bridge. But after all, luck has a great deal to do with winning; for even the best player cannot do much with a bad hand of cards, and even the worst must (10 something with a good hand. And whether we have a good hand or a bad hand is entirely a Matter of chance. That is why.

I suppose. people do not as a rule care for card-games unless they can play for iii me . Only gambling can keep up an interest in cards. My favourite _indoor game is chess. Practically no chances come into chess; it is nearly all pure skill. And this is what gives chess its chief interest. To be a good chess player, one must have great patience, must be able to look ahead and calculate what the result of every movement will be. and one must have great power of concentration. .

A game of chess is a battle. a wresting-match, between two minds. Although the two players sit perfectly still, and scarcely speak a word, they are engaged in an exciting mental combat. And the cleverest man wins. Chess does not need gambling to make it interesting.

So chess is not a mere amusement, though it is very amusing. It is a fine form of mind exercise. It teaches one to think, to calculate. to look ahead, to read other people's thoughts and intentions. Before he dare move a piece. the player had to ask himself -- If I move my knight there, what will be the result? Will my opponent move up his bishop, or withdraw his queen, or play a pawn? If he does the first, will that put my king in danger? If he does the second. can I check his King? If he does the third, will he spoil my attack? And whatever he does„ what shall I do next? -- and so on and so on.

So. for real excitement and interest, and for real mental recreation. give me a game of chess. When ever a get a chance, I love to play it.

All such games ale meant as amusements to pass the time, but some of them, while g.1" nig amusement give something more.I do not much like card-games; for I think that any game that depends mostly on chance, very soon loses its interest.

Of course.. there is a good deal of skill, or at any rate memory and shrewd guessing, required in some card-games, like bridge. But after all, luck has a great deal to do with winning; for even the best player cannot do much with a bad hand of cards, and even the worst must (10 something with a good hand. And whether we have a good hand or a bad hand is entirely a Matter of chance. That is why.

I suppose. people do not as a rule care for card-games unless they can play for iii me . Only gambling can keep up an interest in cards. My favourite _indoor game is chess. Practically no chances come into chess; it is nearly all pure skill. And this is what gives chess its chief interest. To be a good chess player, one must have great patience, must be able to look ahead and calculate what the result of every movement will be. and one must have great power of concentration. .

A game of chess is a battle. a wresting-match, between two minds. Although the two players sit perfectly still, and scarcely speak a word, they are engaged in an exciting mental combat. And the cleverest man wins. Chess does not need gambling to make it interesting.

So chess is not a mere amusement, though it is very amusing. It is a fine form of mind exercise. It teaches one to think, to calculate. to look ahead, to read other people's thoughts and intentions. Before he dare move a piece. the player had to ask himself -- If I move my knight there, what will be the result? Will my opponent move up his bishop, or withdraw his queen, or play a pawn? If he does the first, will that put my king in danger? If he does the second. can I check his King? If he does the third, will he spoil my attack? And whatever he does„ what shall I do next? -- and so on and so on.

So. for real excitement and interest, and for real mental recreation. give me a game of chess. When ever a get a chance, I love to play it.

Essay On If I Were The Prime Minister

Essay On If I Were The Prime Minister.If wishes were horses, beggars would ride. My case is no different. It is the most magnificent dream to make me forget my student life. The office seems so high that it is beyond the reach of ordinary persons. Pakistan has a population of thirteen crores. So my chance of becoming the Prime-Minister is one upon thirteen crores.I have my, own idea of a what a Prime-Minster should be. So there is no harm in expressing my ideas. If fortune smiles on me. I can modify my views according to the situation.

My first target will be to finish back money and bank deposits in the foreign countries by the Pakistanis. When I find some people rolling in wealth and the others begging on the streets, my heart revolts. Is this the Pakistan of lqbal's dream? These people do not pay taxes and keep the money stocked in some secret places. This money is used in hoarding and smuggling. Whereas we need foreign exchange so badly, it is being used for buying gold and luxuries.

I will change the whole system of education. We produce battalions of young people whom we cannot give jobs. They would naturally spread death and destruction. They will kill innocent people or burn their houses and property. We should teach our  students to make useful things in the school workshops. They can niLe them in the school laboratories.

Small children can assemble %mall toys, pens, watches and other things. These things' can be sold III the market. It will give them confidence to do something in life. I he \\ ill prove useful citizens of our country. The politicians have made a mess of the whole country. They make different communities and light.

Essay On Books Which Have Influenced Me

Essay On Books Which Have Influenced Me.There are, indeed, books and books and there are books. Which as Lamb said? are not books at all. I have come across both the types trashy as well as the useful. Both have left their impression behind, but I shall mention only those which influenced my mind for the better. Looking back on the long vista of years I think Jane Eyre was the first book that I read twice and would be glad to read it a third time if somebody presented it to me.

I was, I think, fifteen when I first came upon it and what appealed to me most in it was the adorable fidelity and affection with which Charlotte Bronte had written of children. The tragic childhood of Jane Eyre wrought upon me a certain charm of attraction as well as 'compassion. It is generally said that the true tears are those which are called forth by the beauty- of poetry.

But the true tears are also those, of a yet rarer kind, which are called forth by the beauty of goodness and of such goodness. I had an over following abundance in Jane Eyre. Her hero. Rochester is a wonderful and incomparable figure. How she came first, to conceive and finally to fashion that 'perfect study of noble. faithful and suffering manhood was and still is a puzzle to me.

The next person in order of time was Shakespeare. He did not impress me at all at that time. I am not ashamed to make this confession. for I have now made amends and Shakespeare has been placed on the pedestal he deserves. Macbeth was the first drama that fell into my hands. I was horrified at the diabolical crimes and tried to seek refuge in All 's well That Ends well, lured by the title.

I very soon concluded that the title was supremely cynical one. I detested Betram and was absolutely disgusted Helena falling in love with Parolles -- that bragging coward. Shakespeare was done for. I did not read anything more by him for a couple of years. .

Having already read two or three abridged novels of Dickens I began to feel that I was qualified enough to approach the man in person. And I think, I did well in choosing "David Copper field- as the medium of my communion with that great mind. How closely Davy's childhood resembled mine. how I felt my heart go towards him and how I wept with him and for him. I can never forget.

He had lost his father and was badly treated by his stepfather. I had lost my mother and was similarly treated by step-mother. His mother was weak but always loving. My father was weak and always loving. It seemed that Dickens had really meant to point me. Side by side with Dickens I came under the influence of
I lyron.

I had recently been discouraged in .my love for Rufia and his I larlow and Manfred with their burden of melancholy on them save me comfort. I kept repeating to myself. My days are in the yellow leaf, The fruits and flowers of love are gone. The worm, the canker and the grief Are mine alone.But that was only a temporary' phase. As soon as I came over iii ill-advised infatuation for Rufia, I hated Byron, for I loved life.

Wordsworth. I thought might give me solace. But his transcendentalism and philosophies scared me away and I found comfort and an echo of my heart in Shelly's unbridled desires. How limp, I ind continue under his charm. I do not know. His idealism, Hope  mankind, his pursue of intellectual beauty, sympathy for

Essay On Prize Distribution Function In My College.Prize Distribution Function is important in the life of a college. It comes only once in a year. This generates new enthusiasm in the college. A strong link is established with the public. This function is really very attractive. Like other years, this year also the function attracted hall- packed audience consisting of parents and invitees. The prize giving function of the college was held on the 15th January. The Director o: Education was invited to grace the occasion as the chief guest.

The preparations for the function started a month earlier. The college building was white washed. The college hall, where the function was to be held, was beautifully decorated with pictures and charts. On the appointed day. a beautiful table and certain chairs were placed on the stage. The carpets were spread to seat the students and in the rest of the hall, chairs were arranged. The front rows were reserved for the teachers and invitees.

If I Were The Principal Of My College Essay

Essay On If I Were The Principal Of My College.I have my own views about becoming the Principal of my college. I feel that the principal of the college should also be elected from amongst the students. When we live in a democracy why should we deny this right to the students? There should be a students' council elected by the students themselves. Every class should send its own representative. These class-representatives should form a Parliament.

The Principal should be responsible to them. The students are never consulted in the appointment of the teachers. I shall ask a candidate to teach the class and the students will obverse his lesson. Only those teachers, who can satisfy the students, will be selected.

The students will look after the discipline and cleanliness in the college themselves. They will punish the late comers and tell their parents to send them in time. One student from each class will be on duty. He will check the cleanliness of the students. He will also see to it that no one roams about the con-idors. Another will be on duty in the reception hall. He will attend to the visitors and the telephone calls.

There will be very few teaching periods. They will end before the recess. The students will take part in games. sports and co-curricular activities. They will make more use of the library. In fact, the teachers will guide them only in removing their difficulties. They will inspire us to read new books.

There will be no physical punishment. If a student miss- behaves. he will be suspended from the games and other activity periods. The clubs and societies will not be mere show-pieces for the visitors. They will function actively and lay stress on self-learning. Each and every student will have to take part in drama and group songs. I shall lay stress on manual labour. Each student will have to work in the garden or the workshop. The students will earn while they learn.

No teacher will be allowed to take up tuitions. If any student needs help. he will be guided during the college hours.I got this chance last year only for one day. The students managed the college themselves on the children's day. i.e. 14th Nol, ember and I was made the Principal.
I wish to get this opportunity once again and that too

Essay On The Role Of College Libraries

Essay On The Role Of College Libraries.That libraries play a vital part in furthering educational aims is undeniable. As an appreciation and recognition of this fact, libraries are increasingly becoming an integral part of college everywhere. A college library performs a great many functions. Without doubt, as an effective instrument of learning, it could be directed towards definite educational aims. The most important function of the library is that it provides an excellent opportunity to develop reading habits in students.

This is a vital and effective step in the fulfillment of educational aims because without reading there is little learning. By developing the reading habit the child's vision is broadened and his knowledge is widened, thereby enriching his life.

College libraries enable students to develop their initiative and self-reliance. In using the facilities of the library students begin to learn many things from books without depending on guidance from the teacher. This type of training is very valuable and essential in after-college life because education does not end on leaving college. Education is a life-long process. We have to learn many things by living and growing up in society. It is here that the qualities of initiative and self-reliance prove to be a great asset to an individual.

College libraries break down barriers existing among various school objects. By wider reading the students begin to discover the interrelation of different subjects. In this respect the college library acts as an integrating factor. Students begin to understand the general process of learning.

A proper understanding of the interrelation of subjects makes students appreciate the necessity for learning many different subjects. A student who is apt in a particular subject has the opportunity of increasing his knowledge of it by further reading in a well-stocked school library, even if a detailed knowledge of the subject is unnecessary for the purpose of passing a school examination.

The right and relevant reading material channels students towards mature thinking and cultivates their aesthetic and moral values. They enter adult life with certain pronounced interests in art. literature. drama. music philosophy. In addition the college library provides them with the necessary information about requirements for higher education or the careers they wish to choose, thus preparing them for an easy passage from college to adult life.



In view of these valuable benefits derived from the college library, it has been aptly referred to as a -fountain of inspiration and discovery-.

Essay On Examinations Hall Day

Essay On Examinations Hall Day .Examinations in the field of education have become a source of fear for the examinees, a yardstick of teacher's efficiency and also an essential part of the educational system. It has been repeatedly emphasized that the system of examinations available in Pakistan is not foolproof The educationists have not been able to find a suitable alternative to examinations; the internal assessment system has not been free from alpractices. Examinations in the field of education are very important because they determine the capability of the students as far as their intellectual make-up is concerned.

The examinees suffer a lot from psychological torture before the examinations, during the examination and after the examinations. A day before the examinations is quite troublesome.. The examinees think of questions and dream of questiotts still they feel that they have not been able to prepare properly for the examination. Everything seems to disappear from his memory. In front of the examination hall, he is unnerved by the suggestions of students, some say that they have prepared all the questions thoroughly. others think that certain questions are sure to be asked.

These types of remarks and suggestions make them lose their confidence. During the examinations the eyes glance over the question paper hurriedly and if the question paper happens to be difficult drops of perspiration glisten on the forehead of the candidate. He looks here and there and asks for a glass of water. On the other hand if the question paper happens to be easy the candidate fails to decide which question he should do first. After the examination the examinees remain completely dissatisfied with their own work and calculate their marks almost daily.

The more they think about the examinations the more nervous do they become. As the Judgment day comes and the result it out, very few seem to be happy. Some complain of securing very low marks, others remain dissatisfied.It is some-what ridiculous to test the intelligence of the examinees within a period of three hours. There is a possibility that an examinee has read. so much that he may not be able to digest the material and present it congently. In this manner it is generally felt that the examination is not a true test of the intelligence of a candidate.

More over the system of marking is not fool-proof: In other words it is not possible to be so objective in assessment as it is supposed to be in many cases the examiners are different, so standard of marking is also somewhat different. Another defect in the present system of examinations is that the candidates totally depend upon the whim of the paper setter. It is left to the discretion of the paper setter to make a choice of the various questions from the prescribedsyllabus.

All of these factors go against impartiality which is suppbsed to be very important in education. The system of examinations should be overhauled because without changes we may not develop the talents of the students. Now a days greater emphasis is laid upon mugging up facts without co-relating them with the practical life. This simply means that the system of education is divorced from the day-today problems of life. The candidates should be given ample time to answer questions exhaustively and a general level of intelligence should be determined by some objective method.

It has also been proposed that there should be open book system as far as examinations areconcerned. It is based upon the presumption that only those who know the subject will able to answer the questions properly, others cannot. Similarly another suggestion regarding the reforms in the examinations system is to have spaced assessment of the candidate. 

Essay On Our Educational System Problems

Essay On Our Educational Problems,System.The present system of education is rotten to the core. It was designed to create clerks for the East India Company and later on to supply a number of officers to run the administration. Since the creation of Pakistan, .there has been a cry from the people that the prevailing system of education should be overhauled. Today we lace many educational problems.

First. our education is not based on Islamic principles. It is too materialistic in its outlook. The result is chaos in society. The students of today are disrespectful to their parents and elders. The present indiscipline in the schools and colleges can only be cured the students are made familiar with the Quran. We should base our education on Islamic Ideology. We should pursue western science, but we should not forget that we are Muslims. Now Islamiat" as a  subject has been made compulsory in schools and colleges Secondly, ours is a developing country.

We need more and more skilled workers. We need doctors, engineers, agriculturists, technicians in all spheres of life. Our problem is to have more industrial and technical colleges. Education in humanities should remain but it should be restricted only to a few. This will solve the problem of unemployment to a great extent. Moreover, we will be able to get rid of the foreign experts.

Thirdly, the need for suitable books is being acutely felt in Pakistan. Most of the books are foreign published. Some are published in Pakistan but they are not upto the mark. The learned men and scholars in the country must devote themselves to the writing of new books according to our needs. History will have to be re-written with special reference to the achievements of our national heroes. Modern Urdu literature should be given place in the syllabi. Reading texts must have scientific knowledge in them. They should preach our national ideology.

Fourthly, the most baffling question is that of the national languages. There are many languages in our country, Urdu, English. Arabicr and Punjabi. This language should be developed to high standards so that it may become suitable medium of expression. But a word of caution is necessary. We should not turn out English at once. Sentiment is no substitute for fact.

Lastly, our system of examination needs a drastic change. Our examinations are not a sure test of one's ability. Good marks and divisions in the examinations depend in change and cramming. A good student may fall ill and secure a poor third division; a poor student may cram a few questions and get a high first class. Our education should discourage cram work. It should take all possible steps to engender originality of thought and an aptitude for research work.

Essay On The Aims Of Higher Education

Essay On The Aims Of Higher Education.The sixties are more than ever the age of further education -- we need to train youths for the technological way of life and an understanding of its impact on the humanities. This' type of education, apart from providing immense opportunities, also poses challenges for the future. The object of education, in general, is to enable individuals to be fuller and society to be richer. Education must be constantly adaptable to new conditions, need and discoveries. It must provide for all.

While planning for higher education, we should if found necessary sidestep the burden of custom. and free our outlook from the shackles of traditionalism so as to would our universities to the needs of today and tomorrow. This must be a continuous process from earliest childhood to maturity.

In one respect this would break away from the old-type of departmental specialization which often ended with a student knowing a great deal about his own subject but very little about anything related to it. We cannot ignore the fact that specialization is necessary in a complex, modern society, but synthesis -- the bringing together of subjects so that we can perhaps find an underlying pattern in them -- is just as necessary.

To achieve this, it would be useful to tbllow an integrated course of study, giving time for students to pursue their specialized subjects for half the period of any course, and then allowing them to study with their fellow students in related subjects for threats of the period. Such a course would make their specialized learning meaningful. It might even turn experts into wise men.

Any system of learning which strives only to stuff individuals with knowledge will fall short of the broad aims of education. One •of the cardinal aims of education should be development of character and personality. For this students should be trained to think and judge independently, and to broaden their vision so as to understand, appreciate and accommodate opposing views. Most important of all, they should be trained to take a genuine interest in the life at surrounds them and to show a keen desire to contribute to its improvement.

This spirit of social obligation and readiness to sink personal and group activities in the common good of a larger whole, should be developed in full in the individuals. Education, in short, should be designed to produce a people capable of concessive action to identify their collective interests and to act in furtherance of them.

A fitting epitome to the aims of higher education is the remarks by Dr. Zakir Husain in a take on The state and Higher Education" that you (the students) have to work on yourselves to build, on the foundations of our peculiar endowiamt, a harnorious, stable and sensitive character. This character VGd will lytrness to some of the higher values of life,, that is, more than the merely personal. It will transform you into a moral personality. For individuality though character to personality is the destiny Of a worth while human life." This should be the goal of higher education.

Short Essay on The Muharram Festival

The Muharram is hardly a festival. We may call it mourning. The Muslims celebrate it in honor of the great Husayn. He scarified his life after fasting for ten days. The Muslims of Shia take part in this festival.

The Story


The story of the festival is very touching. None can help weeping. The Muharram has a historical background. Mohammad, the prophet, had two grandsons through his daughter. They were named Hassan and Husayn. Husayn was bravest and the purest man of his time. Hassan was caught by the enemy, Yazid-ul-Maviya. He was put to death. Husayn fought against the enemy. The war went in for 20 days. In the end the enemies surrounded Husayn while he was crossing the desert. He was prisoned for ten days. He was given no food or drink. On the 10th day he was put to death.

How the Festival is Celebrated


The festival lasts for ten days. It begins with the appearance of the new moon of the month on which it falls. A place is selected. All the mourners, great and small, gather there. It is called the council of mourners. They pray thought-out whole day. All distribute alms to the poor. For ten days they weep for Husayn. They curse the cruel Yazid.

Celebration of the Tenth Day


On the 10th day, bamboo frameworks are taken out from the place in procession. These frame works represent the tombs of Hassan and his ones. They are called marsias.They weep bitterly. Some of the mourners become wild with grief. All shout ‘O Hassan ! o Hassan!’ Women beat their breast with their hands in sorrow. They pass the whole night in this way.

Last Day of the Muharram


On the tenth day, which is the last of the festival, the tazias are carried to the Karbala the burial ground. There they are buried with loud cheers to Hassan and Husayn. After this they return home. They pass an hour in prayers. Then they sit down to the great for them. Thus the great festival of the Muharram comes to an end.

Conclusion


The Hindus show sympathy with there Muslim neighbors in their sorrow. They offer cold drinks to the mourners. Some of them out flowers and sweet on the tazias. A bad aspect of the festival is that, when the tazias are taken out, the rival parties quarrel.

Short Essay on Aashura Muharram

It is an important Muslim festival which commemorates the martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad. Muharram is the first month of the Islamic year which begins with this festival. It is celebrated by the Muslims all over the world, but their ways of celebration are different.

It is believed that during this month, while on a journey, Hazrat Imam Hussain, his family members and a large number of his followers were surrounded by the forces of Yazid, the Muslim ruler at that time.

During their serge, they were harassed and tortured, even some of them were put to death. This dispute was the result of the disagreement among Muslims regarding the question of succession arising out of the demise of the fourth caliph, Hazrat Ali.

The Shias, an important sect of the Muslims, observe Muharram in different ways. They put on black clothes as a sign of mourning, with the start of the Muharram.

Majalis (assemblies) are held every day during the first nine days of the celebration, and events related to the martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain and his parties are narrated by Shia orators.

On the tenth day of Muharram a large procession is taken out. They express their sorrows and briefs by inflicting wounds on their own bodies which is practiced to depict symbolically the sufferings of the martyrs.

In some parts of the world, drinking posts are set up temporarily by the Shia community where water and juices are served to all, free of charge. Thus, this festival is celebrated for 10 days starting from the first day of Muharram.

Essay On A Visit To A Hospital Essay On Hospital

Essay On A Visit To A Hospital Essay On Hospital.A visit to a hospital is an experience in itself. During the last summer. one of my friends met with an accident. He was admitted in the Services Hospital. Once I paid a visit to him. In this way I also visited the whole of the hospital. As I entered the hospital, I saw people coming and going. I went to the enquiry office and enquired about the wards. First of all visited the surgical ward. I saw patients lying silently on their beds. Some of the patients had their arms and legs bandaged and plastered. I also saw how a nurse and a doctor were attending on them. These two persons were very sympathetic.

The doctor was directing the nurse to give them necessary medicines. His way of talking was itself very consoling. Calm and quiet were prevailing in the whole ward. Then I went to the medical ward. I saw some of the patients lying on their beds very pensively. From their faces I guessed their pathetic plight. They all seemed to be disgusted with their disease. In the meanwhile the doctor took a round of that ward. The other members of the staff were also accompanying him.

The doctor was enduring about the welfare of the patients one by one. He listened very sympathetically to the troubles of the patients. He was also giving injections to some of the patients. To others, he gave a dose of medicine or mixture.

Then I turned to the operation theatre. Outside the theatre I saw patients to be operated upon lying on the stretchers. The corridor presented a very calm and quick look. Some of the people after recovering from their illness were squatting in the lawns of the hospital. They were playing cards and chess. They were enjoying themselves on the grassy lawns, while some of the people were going home after recovering completely from their illness. They were in delightful moods.

The entire hospital presented to me a very gloomy look. The plight of the patients and the seriousness of the prevailing atmosphere touched me. The behaviour of the doctors and nurses was worthy of Commendations. They acted most wisely and ably in handling the problems of the patients. The patients in turn were also happy with their sympathetic behaviour.I then came out of the hospital. There was a world of difference between the atmosphere which prevailed outside and inside the hospital

Essay On A Visit To A Fair

Essay On A Visit To A Fair.Every year a fair is held near our village. The fair is held on the occasion of annual cattle show. This cattle show is arranged by the whole State of the Punjab. In this fair, cattle from all the corners of Punjab are brought by their owners. The cattle of the best breeds are brought there. People in large numbers flock to the place of the fair to see the variety of animals. Cows, buffaloes, bulls, oxen and other animal are brought by their masters.

As this fair attracts the people from all the neighbouring villages, so many other items of public interest are also displayed there. When I reached the spot, I noticed many things. First of all there was one bazaar, where shopkeepers were selling articles of daily use. At one corner, there was sitting a juggler. The juggler was amusing the people with his clever tricks. His feats were really marvelous. His feats were amazing and stunning. At one time he cut the belly of a small boy which amazed and shocked every spectators.

Here there were wrestling bouts. "[he renowhed wrestlers of the adjoining areas come here to participate in the wrestling. It was an interesting scene to see them tugging and pushing and grappling with each other. After seeing it for sometime I moved away.

From the distance I saw a circle of people. When I came near it. I saw a snake-charmer surrounded by spectators. The snake charmer was playing on his flute pipe. The pipe was giving out a very melodious tune. Before, his flute were dancing some serpents. The serpents seemed to me completely hypnotised by the sweet sound of the flute. It was an interesting sight too. The fair was arranged on a grand scale. Many people had come to buy and sell thzir cattle, sonic of which fetched very' high prices.

Many farmers brought bulls of good breed. The cattle were exhibited nicely. Every fair-goer was buying some thing or the other. Some destitute, lame, crippled and handicapped men and women were begging alms. Passers-by were giving them a paisa or two out of charity. There were many sadhus who had come to this fair.

Essay On My First Day At The College-School

Essay On My First Day At The College.Dreams of the future are always more beautiful and t harming than the realities today. As soon as I at peared in the matric cxamination I started thinking of free, independent and interesting life of the college. My elder brotner used to tell me that life in a ollege is more a fun than a serious etfort to get education. A college p. a place for making friends ard I r chalking out program to go to ilie picture or to picnics.' When ever the teachers talk of aminations and tests, strikes are organized. This dcsciipti.on of the ol lege life was in sharp contrast to the schools 1;fe whichl had seen lor 12 years.

So called discipline for the school liad bored me and I he attitude of teachers in making us to feel that they know everything upon earth had developed a positive hatred for the school life. That is why I was dreaming of the college life..

The first day at the college was considered to be an important one because there used to be ragging in the college. The seniors would make the new corners to indulge in strange actions. So the seniors had worked out their own strategies and we had decided to act together. So as we entered the college we met a few seniors who were approaching us with an air of superiority. They asked us to stop but we paid no attention. They were larger in number so the) made us to subdue immediately.

Then they asked us to do strange things like singing ridiculous songs and doing monkey pranks. The sense of self-dignity in me did not allow me to act according to their wishes till they forced me to obey their orders. I felt a little humiliated but took it sportingly. Later on we came across a few more groups of the seniors but we were able to outwit them somehow or other.

We went to the lecture room and mistaking it for a school we observed some rules of decorum. As soon as the teacher entered we stood up and greeted him. But we found a strange smile on the face of the teacher and it made us to think that we have not acted properly. The teacher did not teach for some time and indulged in general gossip. It was quite amusing and there was no strain upon our mind. After some time we moved to another room and we waited there for near about 20 minutes but no teacher turned up. In fact it was a problem to know to which room were We to move.

There was nobody to guide us and we were terribly afraid of asking the seniors. After the second hell somebody told us that the classes were over. As soon as I moved out of the room I started thinking that in the colleges perhaps there is no regular teaching work. We also heard some of the seniors saying that their courses have not been finished and they do not know which books were to be studied b) them. This made me think that school life was better where we were forced to work.

The college seemed to have lost charm which I have been associating with the college life. The very first day of the college was a disappointing day because I did not believe in wasting time unnecessarily. I had carried a few books with me but could not make use of them. Most of the seniors had neither pen nor paper with them. No one was talking of studies; they were talking of film heroes and heroines. They seemed to be more interested in fashions than in books.



Some of them were smoking out their time in the canteen. All this seemed quite odd. We were supposed to attend only three periods; in one period the teacher gossiped whereas no teacher turned up during the other two periods. I felt a bit bored. I felt that life at the college is all play and no work but that is also not good for a healthy outlook. Thus the first day at the college gave me a complete idea of the life over there. It is meaningless and uninteresting. At this age if person does not work one is bound to suffer throughout. This was lurking in my mind when I took crowded bus home.

Essay On My Last Day At College-School

Essay On Knowledge Of English

The Pakistani students is likely to derive more advantage from the knowledge of English than from the knowledge of any other language. In -the first place, be thereby gains access to the varied stores of a noble literature. The advantage of being able to read in the original the poetry of Milton and Shakespeare. the histories of Gibbon and Maculae. the novels of Scott, Thackeray. and Dickens. and the philosophy of Mill. Darwin, and Herbert Spencer. is incalculable.

This language also gives the key to the latest scientific discoveries of the modem world. Every newly-found marvel of science. even if originally discovered on the European continent, is sure to be published with little delay in the pages of English and American works.

For the traveler and the man of business, no language is more useful than English, which is the mother-tongue of .about a hundred million people, and is acquired for commercial and literary purposes by an immense number of foreigners. Indeed, the English language is known so widely over the surface of the globe, and is spreading so rapidly year by year. that it bids fair to become in the course of time a kind of universal language known and spoken all over the world.

Such are among the general advantages derived from the knowledge of English. But there are, of course. special reasons  Pakistanis should master the language. As Pakistan was a part of the British Empire, English is the official language of this country. and only the very lowest posts in the service of Government are open to those who are ignorant of it. English being the language of the law courts. Pakistani barristers and solicitors cannot succeed in the legal profession. unless they are able. to speak it fluently, The great bulk of the foreign trade of Pakistan being with England, a knowledge of English is essential for all clerks in commercial offices and for those who engage in trade on their own account.



Finally. English is becoming in Pakistan the common language of all educated men, whether their vernaculars be Punjabi or Urdu. so that The business of the national parties, at which representatives from different parts of Pakistan meet in council, has to be conducted in this language. Moreover CNN has made the whole world global village. America, being a super power. also uses English language. It will not be wrong to say that at present English is the language of the whole world.

Essay On Technical Education, Technology Essay

Essay On Technical Education,Technology Essay .Modern civilisation is dominated by science and scientific development. As a result of it specialisation in certain branches and industrialisation have become the most important aspects of scientific development. It is because of this reason that technical education has been so much in demand. In the earlier days education was meant for the intellectual development of man and in some cases for spiritual cultivation. The main purpose of education was to discipline our emotions and discipline our thinking, and by doing so it made us fit for a proper type of. social life.

With the passing of I me education became broader in its embrace and more significant in organising the society. A number of politicians made use of education for propagating their ideologies. For example. in Russia and China of yesterday some of the sayings of individuals were taught in the schools and colleges. The young minds were stuffed with certain thoughts which suited their purpose. But nowadays education is becoming more and more job-oriented. That is why technical education is assuming greater importance.


Technical education makes us skilled so that we may be able to handle the machines properly. As has already been pointed out technical education makes us specialists in certain domains of life. There are a large 'number of jobs which cannot be properly performed till technical knowledge is acquired.

In a developing country like Pakistan technical education is very important. It is not possible to make industry the important basis of economy, as we have envisaged, without making arrangement for technical education. That is why a larger number of Technical Institutes and other engineering colleges cater to this type of education. In this respect one thing should be kept in mind that arrangements for absorbing technical men be made. Moreover industries should be set up every year.

 But this process cannot go on for all times to come. At one or the other stage they will have to reduce the number of those who get technical education so that there may not be unemployment among the technical people. it is generally said that technical men can never remain unemployed because they will have their own industries but it is true in theory, only. In practise it needs a good market to sell the finished goods. It is not possible to provide these two things to all the technical men.

In one of the essays entitled "Useless knowledge"' Russel tells us that technical education makes the people inhuman and 'purely objective. They look at the problem purely from the technical point of view and their thinking becomes cold and calculating. This is possibly one of the defects of technical education. We should always try to have a larger outlook, comprehensive thinking and humanitarian approach. For all this there should be libers4 education also.



Technical education makes human beings machines but when it is tampered with liberal education it becomes more wholesome and beneficial. Liberal education not only makes us to cultivate our affections but also develops our thinking. Apart from it technical education should be a part of training after completing education and should not be an education in itself. Technical training is more or less practical whereas education is somewhat different from learning the skill.

Lion and the Mouse

Once when a Lion was asleep, a little Mouse began running up and down upon him. This soon wakened the Lion, who placed his huge paw upon him and opened his big jaws to swallow him.

"Pardon, O King!" cried the little Mouse, "Forgive me this time. I shall never repeat it and I shall never forget your kindness. And who knows, but I may be able to do you a good turn one of these days?"

The Lion was so tickled at the idea of the Mouse being able to help him, that he lifted up his paw and let him go.

Sometime later a few hunters captured the King and tied him to a tree while they went in search of a wagon to carry him on.

Short StoriesJust then the little Mouse happened to pass by, and seeing the sad plight in which the Lion was, ran up to him and soon gnawed away the ropes that bound the King of the Beasts. "Was I not right?" said the little Mouse, very happy to help the Lion.

MORAL: Little friends may prove great friends.

How do Movies or TV affect People?

Our life has gone through great changes since television and movies came into being, which provides a totally new and different way of using our spare time to the traditional way. As a matter of fact, with the wide spread of this mass media such as movies and television all over the world, people's behavior and thoughts have been changed a lot since it has become an inalienable part of our daily life. Movies and television influence people's behavior by altering their views of value, beauty, and the world.

 People become more confident and seldom give up after watching the movie Forest Gump, they stop smoking and begin to do exercises after watching the TV program about smoking ruins one's health, and girls try hard to lose weight after actresses in movies and television tend to be thinner and thinner. All these changes, indeed, has much to do with mass media. It is obvious that, teenagers talk a lot when gathered together about sports games or newest Hollywood movies, whereas adults discuss the world's political situation or social problems when having time in their offices. The topics that they focus on, in most cases, are acquired either from television programs or from movies, and so forth.

Movies and television influence people's behavior by satisfying their imagination. Heroes and heroines achieve great success of their business, attain sweet love of their life, and gain high respect of their fame so easily within a two-hour long movie. When watching it, audiences can experience the same evens, share the same feelings, and this whole process would fulfill their fantasies, as a result, cause them to find balance in their lives, or, to some degree, lose the balance, which depends on not only the movies but also the audiences themselves. All in all, mass media, including movies and television, has a significant correlation with people's behaviors. To put it differently, tasks are arduous for mass media to bring people laughter, joy and relaxation, and at the same time some pedagogic meanings.

Are Parents Best Teachers?

Are parents are best teachers? Different people will give different responses to this question from their own characters, emotional concerns and even educational backgrounds. However, when it comes to me, I believe that parents are our best teachers for the following reasons. In the first place, parents are the people who are closest to us and who understand our real needs best. From infancy on, our parents have witnessed every step in both our physical and mental development. They share every hint of happiness or unhappiness with us and they even know what a little gesture of us might indicate. Based on such a deep understanding, our parents will teach us what we are interested in and what we are not.

 For instance, they can often buy books on our favored topics such as sea animals and astronomical objects. Little by little, we can mature our minds and broaden our horizons in our favorite fields. (Or are we prospective artists, scientists, teachers, or even businesspeople? Our parents might tell that at our early ages. Consequently, they will give us specific encouragement and abundant resources in our favored fields. Sometimes, our parents can even point out a direction to our future professional goals. Will other people do that for us based on such a solid understanding of us?)


In the second place, our experienced parents are our best teachers of today's complicated society.
From our teachers at school, we can learn sophisticated knowledge. But how can our teachers tell us how to communicate with others, how to deal with strangers, how to behave in different occasions, and how to make important decisions of our daily life? Only our parents, who will spend their whole life loving us, caring us will tell us how to steer our own boats in the ocean of life without selfish consideration.

Admittedly, our friends and school teachers could provide us with valuable advice now and then, and maybe it will be easier for us to follow their suggestions. Their effects on us cannot be neglected or replaced by our parents. And parents might spoil their children or even interfere with children's privacy because of love. To be honest, the roles of these two kinds of people cannot be replaced by each other. However, it seems to me that only our parents, who will spend their whole life with us, will be our best teachers, not only for now but also for our whole life.

All in all, if all the factors are contemplated, we can easily reach a conclusion that, parents are not only our first teachers but also our best teachers. Let's be carefully aware of this point and take better care of our parents to repay their efforts to teach us.
