Essay on Terrorism Causes, Effects and Solution

The use of violence such as bombing, shooting or kidnapping to obtain political demand is called Terrorism. It s a form of violent action which is used to force the government for a special purpose or to achieve political demands in a country or worldwide.
The world is full of little quarrels among the nations of the world. Every nation tails itself the best and tries to exploit the rights of the others. Terrorism is used as a political weapon or policy. Terrorism is the most severe problem of this age that people are facing all over the world It is equally occurring in important causes of terrorism are following.

  • A huge production of weapons like guns, pistols, machine guns, kalashnikov, atom bombs, hydrogen bombs, distant marking missiles and nuclear weapons.
  • The growing population and less resources of life.
  • A great run after money and after materialistic things.
  • Economical, social and political injustice.
  • Unsatisfactory conditions of life in different countries.

The main function of the terrorism is to produce a great disturbance in the social and political system of a country. The major effects of terrorism which are appeared directly are following.

  • Terrorism produces great fear among the people and they feel themselves unsafe in their state and then in the world.
  • Due to the increasing events of terrorism, the government and establishment becomes weak and the confidence of people on the government and establishment is ended.
  • On the basis of terrorism any government can easily be kicked out.
  • Due to the violent actions of terrorism, many innocent people are killed and lot of public and private property is destroyed or damaged.

After the destruction and killing on large scale during the Second World War, the nations of the world decided to organize an institution for world peace, thus United Nations (UN) was born to fight against the evil and the terrorism. Thus the fight against terrorism was started. The destruction of World Trade Tower on 11th, September was a great incident of terrorism. After this incident the president of U.S.A announced their fight against terrorism. He requested many other countries to assist him in fighting against terrorism. As the result of this effort a network has been spread all over the world to find out terrorists and to find out nuclear weapons in different countries.

The most remarkable thing is that those who call themselves as the model of humanity are using also modern technology and Weapons for terrorism. In the name of fight against terrorism, the open opposition of human rights is being done. It is the new game of surer powers to interfere in the politics of those countries that have less qualities in industrialization and stability than them. We have seen the examples in Afghanistan and Iraq Is. it not terrorism to attack on Iraq without the permission of the united Nations? They call it the war against nuclear weapons but it is also a part of terrorism. The policy making nature of big countries causes to produce hostile little groups who show the act of terrorism for the purpose of their rights. The hostile little groups who are known as freedom fighters try to produce disturbance.

  • By killing people
  • By destroying national property
  • By doing bomb blasts

The fight against terrorism is actually a well organized scheme to kill all those who raise their voice for their basic tights.

Essay on The Importance of Peace in the World

The state of freedom from war or violence is called "Peace". It is the state which can make this world like a heaven. The importance of peace in the world can be described by short comparison of war and peace.
  1. War is destructive, peace is constructive.
  2. War destroys, peace preserves.
  3. War calls in beast in man, peace makes man civilized.
  4. War creates hate, peace promotes love and friendship.
  5. War causes bloodshed, peace brings progress and prosperity.
People long for peace and raise their hands in prayers. The victories of peace are no less than the victories of war. In the first place, peace is indispensable for human progress. All the mighty inventions of science and the creations of art are the victories of peace. Peace gives us the message of universal brotherhood and friendship. Humanity cannot survive without love and peace.

Islam is a religion of peace. It gives clear ideas and the best reforming laws about social and political systems. The great purpose of Islam is to produce an everlasting state of peace in the world. Islam gives also very clear ideas about the peaceful individual life. Hazrat Muhammad (Peace be upon him) showed practically the examples of peace. He always prayed for his enemies. After the conquest of Makkah, he forgave all his enemies and tried to create a peaceful atmosphere there. He established a harmonious society in Madina. Islam teaches the lessons of mutual respect but it also gives lessons to fight against the evils and to establish the state of peace after making struggle, war and efforts.

Is war necessary for peace? it is a very difficult question to answer. Before answering it man must see it ins and outs. If war is necessary, it is a necessary evil. Its evil is sometimes concealed for a time by its glamour and excitement, but when war is seen in its reality, there is a very little glory about it. At its best, it is a hideous calamity in the great wars, millions of men, women and children were killed, or died of disease, famine and untold sufferings.

After the event of 11th September, and the destruction of the World Trade Center in the United States of America, war to win peace has become more expeditious. The American establishment has tried to interfere the politics of the countries which are considered as working to use their energies for warfare. The destruction and killing in Afghanistan and Iraq is the part of war to win peace. The American establishment calls their struggle is for the end of nuclear trend in the world but it is making the exploitation of human rights. The war to win peace is actually a devilish plot to destroy the power of those who are trying to get their basic rights.

War is not necessary to win the peace. The peace can be established by showing great moral values and by providing the equal rights for everyone. So the world could be made a peaceful and happy place. Islam teaches the lessons of peace and tolerance. Islam is the religion with the greatest ideas about human rights. It gives a complete description of duties and rights. It gives the teaching of mutual respect and it provides all such qualities, if they are implemented rightly than no war is needed to establish the peace in the world.

Essay on The Value of Discipline

"Unity, Faith and Discipline" these are the three words Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah gave us. Unity is a great force. A united house is a strong force. We know the, story of the dying old man who gave the lesson of unity to his Sons with the help of a number of sticks. “Faith” means firm believe, the Muslim have their strong faith in Allah. They believe the supremacy of Allah and their faith provides them a power which leads them towards the unity.

Discipline means to pass life in a well organised manner. Discipline is necessary in every field of life. It is a system of commands and performance of work, regularity and compliance or orders. There are following kinds of discipline.

  • External Discipline
  • Internal Discipline
  • Social Discipline

The external discipline is always enforced by competent authority. Internal discipline is according to internal needs, capacities and temperaments of the individuals. It creates the sense of responsibility and help perform honestly. Social discipline means to lead a successful life by acting upon social values and traditions.
The value and importance of discipline can be described as following.

  • it attracts the individuals towards constructive and positive activities.
  • It helps in making good educational system.
  • It creates self confidence among people.
  • It produces the sense of responsibility.
  • It trains people to respect law arid cultural tradition.

On considering the above points, it is cleared that faith is the basic need which produces religious bent of mind. Unity creates a power which builds a nation while discipline creates system for making a good society. So unity, faith and discipline should become a part of the life of every person.

Essay on My Best friend

A real friend is hard to find. In fact every body who shakes hands with me or courts me with a smile or an embrace is not a friend in the real sense. He may be merely an acquaintance or sonic thing more. To be a friend there must be present some essential qualities in a person. He must be selfless, sincere and loving. He must never desert his friends under odd circumstances and must be ready to help his friend through thick and thin. He must be very frank and always ready to tell his friend the defects he has.

I am very fortunate to have a real friend at the school. Lean, tall and active, he has a lovely personality and charming manners. He is of my age and the son of a petty shopkeeper. His name is iftikhar. He lives in a modest house not far away from my home.

I have been knowing lftikhar since I was a boy. We had played together as small boys and have begun to like each other since. As fortune may have it we were admitted in the same school and the same class. Known as he was already to me. We cultivated liking for each other and soon became much attached.

Sober, good looking, and energetic, Iftikhar is a little taller than I. He has bright black eyes and a beautifully shaped nose. He is as attractive in his manners as in his appearance. Everyone who meets him desires to make him his friend.

lftikhar is sincere honest and faithful. Always, with a smile on his face and with a charm in his speech, he is ready to help me, to console me, to guide me and to show me the right path. I can never forget those days when I was bedridden due to jaundice and it was he who sat by my bed in a chair talking to me, consoling me, and nursing me. He refused to go home during the days I was ill. His presence was a source of great consolation and hope.

Intelligent, resolute and diligent as lftikhar is, he is one of the most brilliant students of my class. He studies for hours every day and urges me to study with him. He is very good at English and mathematics and helps me a lot in my studies. In fact, it is through his efforts that I have also become a good student.

One of the things, I love Iftikhar for, is his concern for me. If I do some thing wrong he points it out frankly. If I am ever seen with a bad boy, lftikhar takes it seriously and refuses to talk to mc unless I promise not to mix with notorious boys.

Iftikhar is neither proud of his knowledge nor ashamed of his poverty. Poverty, to him, is an outstanding characteristic of the House of our Holy Prophet. He is determined to be a self made man. He is religious and never misses a single prayer even in cold weather. He helps his father in his small business and takes care of his younger brother and sisters. He, sometimes, helps his mother in domestic work. And as far as I am concerned, I wonder what would have become of me without him.

The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ taught love, kindness and compassion to his people, and was seen to be the most loving, kind, and compassionate of all of them. The Quran mentions his kind and gentle behavior in these words: “O Messenger of Allah! It is a great Mercy of God that you are gentle and kind towards them; for, had you been harsh and hard-hearted, they would all have broken away from you” (Quran 3:159).

There are many instances that show his kindness and gentleness, especially to the weak and the poor. Anas, who was his helper, said: “I served Allah’s Messenger for ten years and he never said to me, ‘Shame’ or ‘Why did you do such-and-such a thing?’ or ‘Why did you not do such-and-such a thing?’” (Bukhari, 2038).

Once the Holy Prophet ﷺ said to his wife: “0 ‘A’ishah! Never turn away any needy man from your door empty-handed. 0 ‘A’ishah! Love the poor; bring them near to you and God will bring you near to Him on the Day of Resurrection”. He ﷺ also went much further on to say: “Seek me among your weak ones, for you are given provision, or you are given help only by reason of the presence of your weak ones”. (Rahman, Encyclopedia of Seerah, VOL. VIII, p. 151) Allah Almighty is Kind, and the Prophet ﷺ imitated Allah’s example in its perfection by showing kindness to his servants and all creatures without any regard for their beliefs, color or nationality. The Prophet ﷺ said: “Allah is kind and likes kindness in all things” (Bukhari, 6601).

His heart ached within him at the corrupt state of his fellow-Meccans and their rejection of One God. The Holy Quran testifies to it in these words: “0 Muhammad, you will, perhaps, consume yourself with grief because the people do not believe” (Quran 26:3). In Surah Kahf, we read: “Then perhaps you would kill yourself through grief over them, [O Muhammad], if they do not believe in this message, [and] out of sorrow.” (Quran 18:6). And Surah Fatir says: “So let not your life be consumed in grief for their sake.” (Quran 35:8).

The Holy Prophet ﷺ took a great interest in the welfare of all people and had great compassion for people in trouble. The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ imitated the attributes of Allah par excellence and translated them into practice in the highest form possible for man. Kindness is an attribute of Allah, which has no limits. It is extensive and encompasses all things and all beings without discrimination. Likewise was the kindness of the Prophetﷺ. Heﷺextended it to all beings, both animate and inanimate and benefited all without measure. The Quranic words for the Prophet’sﷺkindness, Ra’ufun Rahim (Quran 9:128) are very intensive and comprehensive in meaning and convey the true nature and extent of the Prophet’s kindness to people. The Prophet ﷺ said: “One of the finest acts of kindness is for a man to treat his fathers’ friends in a kindly way after he has departed” (Abu dawud, 5123)

The issue of treating friends well was also extended to include relations: “He who wishes to have his provision enlarged and his term of life prolonged should treat his relatives well” (Bukhari, 5985). He emphasized on this matter because he deeply held the view that “Only kindness prolongs life, and a person is deprived of provisions for the faults he commits” (Ibn Majah). Bahz b. Hakim, on his father’s authority, said that his grandfather told him that he had asked Allah’s Messengerﷺto whom he should show kindness and that the Prophetﷺhad replied: “Your mother.” He asked who came next and he replied: “Your mother.” He asked who came next and he replied for the third time: “Your mother.” He again asked who came next and heﷺreplied: “Your father, then your relatives in order of relationship” (Abu Dawud, 5120). He dwelled on the issue of treating orphans humanely as he stated that “The best house among the Muslims is one which contains an orphan who is well treated, and the worst house among the Muslims is one which contains an orphan who is badly treated” (Ibn Majah, 3679). This means that the Prophetﷺcautioned his followers against general maltreatment of anyone regardless of his status. By extending good treatment from friends to relatives and now to neighbors, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was intent in making all humans interdependent as he emphasized in the following words: “All creatures are Allah’s dependents  and those dearest to Allah are the ones who treat His dependents kindly” (Rahman, VOL VIII, p. 154). He ﷺ emphasized the kind treatment of women again and again in his speeches:

Treat women kindly, since they are your helpers; . . . you have your rights upon your wives and they have their rights upon you. Your right is that they shall not allow anyone you dislike to enter your bed or your home, and their right is that you should treat them well. (from the Farewell Sermon of the Prophet)

Once a number of women complained to the Prophet’s wives about their ill-treatment by their husbands. On hearing of this, the Prophet ﷺ said: “Such persons among you are not good persons.” (Abu Dawud, 1834). This condemnation by the Prophet himself was an indication that no one will be accepted before God who, while on earth, decided to be unkind to women. Another person said to the Prophetﷺ: “0 Messenger of Allah! My relatives are such that although I cooperate with them, they cut me off; I am kind to them but they ill treat me.” The Prophet ﷺ said this in reply: “So long as you continue as you are, God will always help you and He will protect you against their mischief” (Muslim, 4640). This was not only a way of bringing comfort to the mind of the worried person but one of the communicative techniques of the Prophetﷺto assure who ever found himself in that situation to look up to Allah to be consoled and protected. So it was pointless to preach vengeance to this kind of people suffering from this similar fate. Indeed, Prophet Muhammadﷺwas nothing short of a competent counselor.

He ﷺ was always counseling people to be goodhearted regardless of their sex, age or gender. Once Asma bint Abu Bakr’s mother, who was still an unbeliever, came to see her in Madinah. She told this to the Prophet ﷺ and said: “My mother has come to see me and she is expecting something from me. May I oblige her?” The Prophet ﷺ said: “Yes, be kind to your mother” (Muslim, 2195). This attitude of the Prophet was equally extended to Zainab as-Saqafia, the wife of Abdullah ibn Mas’ud and an Ansari woman. She went to see the Prophet ﷺ and to inquire whether it would be a charity if they spent something on their husbands and on the orphans under their care. The Prophet ﷺ said: “They will get a two-fold reward, one for kindness towards their relatives and the other for charity” (Bukhari, 1466).

There are many Ahadith concerning his kindness to animals, birds and insects: “Allah prescribed kindness towards everything; so when you slaughter any animal, slaughter it well; when you sacrifice, make your sacrifice good. And let everyone sharpen his weapon and make it easy for his sacrificed animal” (Muslim, 5055). He ﷺ made this kind of statement to demonstrate his love for both humans and animals. In essence, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was equally showing his followers that he too is feels pain.

Essay on negative Effects of Watching too much TV

Nowadays watching too much TV became a very widespread problem. We can see TV in every home, even the parents begin to teach their children to watch TV in early childhood, because they think that is a good way to develop a child. Sometimes people forget that the TV does not always carries only positive aspects. “Indeed, a negative relationship exists between the amount of time spent watching TV and children and adolescents health status, including overweight, school and verbal performance, perceived cognitive and attention abilities, and violence or bullying” (Patriarca, 2009). Negative effects of the TV became quite obvious fact. As a consequence, TV affects human physical, mental and social health in a very destructive ways.

One reason why people should not watch too much TV is reduction of mental capacity. Because when people watch an excessive amount of television they do not look for new solutions of any problems. TV changes the way of thinking. This is especially noticeable in the younger generation. Usually the film ends happily, even if the characters in the film were pursued by criminal group or Interpol. Because of this, people stop to look for the solution of problems and expect that everything will be resolved by itself well. In their brains creativity and the desire to create completely replaced by continuous consumption of the information which was produced by TV. That is why after watching too much TV people get typical forgetfulness and decreased ability to think abstractly. Also excessive TV watching changes the outlook on life. Most of those who met in real life with the representatives of various professions, say that, in reality, these people are quite different. They are very different from television characters, because TV does not show the reality, but try to show perfect life.

As an another reason, excessive TV watching leads to emotional frustration in families and problems with relatives. It happens, because people get used to observe the dramatic developments of heroes screen, to share all their experiences, tragedies, challenges and so on. Rather than spend time with family and friends, people are worried about fictional characters. People are so accustomed to these characters that other people may seem less intimate than the vending hero of the next series. Maybe if people will spend more time with their relatives and families instead of watching TV, the statistics of broken marriages will be many times better.

Also watching too much TV is harmful because the human brain is filled with redundant information. A huge stream of advertising, TV shows, TV series and news releases emotional cripple person. Usually people can see dozens or hundreds of commercials for the evening, which will be later mixed in unthought mess in their heads. If people beat the heads with useless information they totally do not leave space for a really worthwhile information. Thus it can be said that in the modern time watching TV is an attribute of a limited world view and lazy lifestyle, which leads to many psychological and physiological problems.

Short Essay on the Value of Time

Value chain of our life time activities can have the Value proposition as self brand of creating opportunity for ourselves. There goes a proverb- "Time and tide wait for no man."

Time once gone is gone for ever". This sentence has encapsulated the true  value of time. Time gives only one chance and one has to put all effort and intelligence to make it best usable.

Time is really a wonderful thing. It can be defined satisfactorily as- It has no beginning and no ending. All things are born in time, grow in time and then decay and die in time. Time moves at its own pace. It cannot be commanded. It does not wait for kings or princess and has no pity for beggars. .It cannot be analyzed. It can not be criticised.

We are generally conscious about passing time and its importance. We have developed clocks and watches to indicate its flow. We have invented dates, days and years to indicate and measure it in our own way, but mind me,  it is really indivisible and immeasurable.

People say time is money. But I am saying that it is more precious than money. Money lost can be recovered, but not the time lost. A moment lost is lost for ever. Time is ever changing. Change is the law of nature. Nothing is independent of change or time. Man’s life is very short but the work is much large and difficult. There are so much to do in one's life. Therefore, we should not waste even a single minute. Every breath, every second should be used properly and meaningfully.

Our school work, home task, hours of rest and sleep, time of recreation and exercise, etc. should be well planned and organized.

We should never postpone doing good and important things. We should never be idle when we ought to be working hard. Leisure is enjoyable only after fruitful hard work. It is our duty to not to leave any work till tomorrow that can be done today and now.

We should not waste time. Actually, nobody can waste time. It is we who are being wasted by time. Economy and value of time is very much important. Great men and women use their every moments most profitably and economically. It is through this method that they have invented great things, discovered wonderful things and left their footprints on the sands of time.

Even our spare time should be wisely used. It   should be utilized in pursuit of healthy and meaningful hobbies and ecstasy. We may study books, learn music, play with children, grow a garden, learn to do something new and useful in our leisure.

In many bigger competition we have noticed that time management is given due importance to score at the top level. Time management is the effect of the value of time. It is the time which value each rise and fall of the economy, sociability, humanity, poverty and divinity. The Almighty God has also provided a limited time for our life. He has set sun, moon, earth etc to perform its duty in time. Time has been also set for complete devastation ( according to Quran Qayamat) of whole universe. Time will also watch the time after complete devastation. This time is only known to God.

Essay on The Possibility of Third World War

Man craves for peace during war but he is haunted by the fear of war during peace time. As a result of it during peace time he starts preparing for war, piles up weapons, enters into treaties with the super powers and increases defence expenditure. All this leads to cold war. After the Second World War, the two super powers-Russia and America started fearing each other and this fear was increased by their ideoloircal differences and differences in their political set up. So since the end of the Second World War fear of the Third World War has been haunting mankind.

There have been many serious political problems which might have easily lead to Third World War. The earliest of them have been the Cuban crises and Korean war. The Vietnam war. Iran dispute, Arab Israel confrontation, Kashmir problem and even Russian occupation of Afghanistan would have flared up into world war. All of these were serious threats to world peace. But the fear of the disaster which may result due to world war kept the nations under check.

It appears there is a little chance of World War III because with the coming of Gorbachev in power efforts have been made to defuse the world situation; the Iraq Iran war has been brought to an end; the P.L.O. has declared Palestanian state without claiming Israeli land. Similarly the confrontation between Russia and China is coming to an end. Russia has withdrawn her forces from Afghanistan. In Pakistan also democratic government has been formed.

So there is a great possibility that they may try to resolve out-standing problems through negotiations with India. In this manner the atmosphere is not so much charged with tension as it was in the earlier years. Still we cannot say at this moment that peace is going to last for a long time. Most of the world problems have not been buried deep rather they threaten to become the cause of the third world war.

The consequences of the Third World War are extremely horrible to imagine. Some of the scientists have pointed out that the use of bombs like Megaton bomb and Cobalt bomb would consume whole of the oxygen of the atmosphere and living creatures would not be able to breathe and live. Some others say that the heat produced by the explosion of the bomb would melt snow on the mountains and consequently the world would be flooded.

Some others think that after war even if there is some life it would be meaningless and extremely primitive though some think that the nuclear winter will freeze every thing on earth. If the Third World War is fought with the weapons which the super powers possess at this time there would be total destruction. What will be the fate of the earth and the universe if the Star War programme continues.

Super powers go on increasing their striking power. Once Einstein was asked how third world war would be fought he gave a pertinent reply that he did not know about the third world war but if Fourth World War was fought it would be fought with the help of stones. He meant to say that human beings would reel back to the primitive ages. In fact during the Third World War there will be no victor and no vanquished.

It is only the horrible consequences of the Third World War that make the super powers to think of avoiding war. President Nixon during his term as President of America wanted to make use of the Nuclear Bomb in Vietnam and also during Indo-Pak war but he desisted from this act of foolishness perhaps only because of the fear of the destruction of the world.

Russel in one of his essays pointed out that if there was going to be a world war it should be as early as it was possible otherwise it would be so destructive that there would be no historian to record. The possibility of the Third World War at this time seem to be remote.

The consequences are so horrible that one could never think of war. Former president of Pakistan Ishaq Khan once said -we are standing on a precipice and a single wrong step will bring total destruction".

Some of the scientists have pointed out that the use of bombs like Megaton bomb and Cobalt bomb would consume whole of the oxygen of the atmosphere and living creatures would not be able to breathe and live. Some others say that the heat produced by the explosion of the bomb would melt snow on the mountains and consequently the world would be flooded.

Some others think that after war even if there is some life it would be meaningless and extremely primitive though some think that the nuclear winter will freeze every thing on earth. If the Third World War is fought with the weapons which the super powers possess at this time there would be total destruction. What will be the fate of the earth and the universe if the Star War programme continues.

Super powers go on increasing their striking power. Once Einstein was asked how third world war would be fought he gave a pertinent reply that he did not know about the third world war but if Fourth World War was fought it would be fought with the help of stones. He meant to say that human beings would reel back to the primitive ages. In fact during the Third World War there will be no victor and no vanquished.

It is only the horrible consequences of the Third World War that make the super powers to think of avoiding war. President Nixon during his term as President of America wanted to make use of the Nuclear Bomb in Vietnam and also during Indo-Pak war but he desisted from this act of foolishness perhaps only because of the fear of the destruction of the world.

Russel in one of his essays pointed out that if there was going to be a world war it should be as early as it was possible otherwise it would be so destructive that there would be no historian to record. The possibility of the Third World War at this time seem to be remote.

The consequences are so horrible that one could never think of war. Former president of Pakistan Ishaq Khan once said -we are standing on a precipice and a single wrong step will bring total destruction".

Essay on Should Women Receive Military Training

Every one knows that women are equal to men in strength and intelligence. It follows, therefore, that women can get training for any profession which men can select. Women are found fit for any kind of work. Thus women work in mills, factories and mines. They become fitters, engineers,. air-hostesses and pilots. They also join the ranks of home-guards and police force. In both these vocations women have to work hard
and have to risk their lives. Military training is one step further and women should take such training.
Modern wars require millions of soldiers.

Hence if women take military training, enough soldiers will be available and there will be no need of conscription. Even if we do not send women on the battlefield we can keep them to guard the frontiers of our country in times of war. When women take up this responsibility, more male soldiers can be sent on the battlefront. Thus women soldiers will be extremely useful to the country in times of emergency.

Some persons say that the fair sex is timid by nature, and that even if women take military training, they will miserably fail on the battlefield. But history furnishes many examples for the valour of women warriors, Razia, Chand Bibi, Joan of Arc, Tarabai Rani of Jhansi have become immortal for their fiery zeal and valour on the battle-field. In the last world war Russian women took an active part and saved their country from the German invasion. Only recently women of Azad Kashmir rendered meritorious services to their motherland by joining armed forces.

Even from the point of civil life, women should take military training. After receiving military training, women will be equal to men in all respects. Hence there will be no inferiority complex in women. Again military training will make women fearless and brave.

In times of riots, air attacks etc., such women will behave in an orderly manner and will stop chaos. Moreover the children of women who have received military training will be brave and disciplined.
There are some who disfavour military training of women. Women can take military training no doubt, but they cannot take part in strenuous and risky military operations.

They also argue that women have to manage their homes and have to look after their children. They cannot ignore these important duties and go to the battle-front. This argument is proper no doubt, but it does not apply to unmarried women, who can safely join the army. Some say that military training will change the temper of Worden and they will become unfit as wives and mothers.

Circumstances are fast changing. Future wars will be more disastrous than the past wars. Therefore women will have to shoulder some of the responsibilities of men in time of war. Obviously then women should take military training.

Little Things In Life Essay


Essay On Little Things Are Great To Little Men.

It is a fact that "the great would not think themselves demigods if the little did not worship them." Greatness is gained by comparison and when analysed it comes to a greater range and extent than when looked at by itself. Greatness is a relative term. Very few are great because of originality. Distinction very often comes through contrast. A man of ordinary stature would be a distinguished figure in the land of pigmies.

A man getting a salary of Rs. 10.000 a month would be considered a rich man among the labourers who live from hand to mouth. A village school master who has only got though his Matriculation would be looked upon as a prodigy of learning by the simple minded rustics.

So the value of greatness depends on our sense of proportion. Little men have a narrow outlook on life. Their ideas are derived from their immediate surroundings and they have not the power of visualisation. They cannot look far ahead, nor have they the faculty of observing things in their right perspective. The result is that their judgment is incorrect and they are not able to discriminate between the great things and little things.

Great things would fill their minds with superstitious awe, while the little things would loom large in their eyes. There are so many little men's great men in this world, who possess no inherent worth, but who pose themselves as great before the little men. The servant to a Deputy Commissioner is a great men in the eyes_of the villagers. A pocket gramophone or a travelling cinema would be a wonder of the world to them. This is all due to their narrow and distorted vision.

But this narrow outlook of little men has an advantage also. They have very few ambitions and those too are easily fulfilled. Their desires do not extend to unattainable or valuable things. They are satisfied with little things and lead a contented life. Moreover. the pleasure they desire from little things is greater than what the great men get from great things, because they can never reach the goal of their ambitions. They aim at the moon and only hit at the mountain.

Generally, greatness, is an illusion. The minute a great man is taken out of the atmosphere he is living in or the position he is occupying, he becomes shorn of his greatness. -When greatness descends from its lofty pedestal, it assumes human dimensions."

Essay On The Modern Society

Essay On The Modern Society .Cultural identity is not a problem fbr the general public but for the educated, whose upbringing has often included virtually inevitable elements of cultural alienation. The elite must return to their culture to understand it more effectively, and experience it as a living reality in order to find their roots in it. Seen from this angle, cultttral identity should be asserted primarily in the schools and universities.

An elite, often educated in other schools and sometimes unsure of its identity. must be helped into awareness of its own heritage, and its eyes opened to the fact that popular culture is not merely folklore.The question of each group of nation's cultural identity. which is at the meeting-point of culture and communication, shows the importance of language both as a vehicle of communication and as part of the cultural heritage.

Linguistic richness imposes not only a respect for the many languages existing but also a complex and costly adaptation of the communication network to the different linguistic areas, as well as the use of many language by the communication media in order to avoid standardisation. Language policy. therefore. constitutes one of the thorniest and most important issues in the formulation of communication policies.

Culture. which was not something separate from consciousness of the community's identity. was probably regarded first and foremost as a factor making for a stronger sense of national individuality: but the quest for cultural identity was, in all cases combined with sympathetic receptivity to the other cultures of the region and of the world, and. ultimately, to all that is universally human. which ruled out cultural isolationism and entailed the disavowal of chauvinistic assertions of distinctive nationhood.

The fate of modern societies is enacted on stage which now encompasses the planet. Societies which until a few decades ago were able to live in almost total ignorance of each other are today in increasingly close and regular contact. There is a growing interplay of reciprocal influences: interdependence is a reality in many fields of human activity .

Yet. while this interdependence is undoubtedly a source of mutual enrichment, receptivity, new initiatives and creativity, it is also a cause of frustration to the extent that it is accompanied by worsening conditions for certain people. and feelings of growing uncertainly and increased vulnerability. Sensitivity of changes, wherever they occur in the world, is becoming acute.

It is perhaps in the field of culture that the contradictory demands of new world relationships are most readily discernible. Communication between human beings is becoming global in its scope. and the quantity of knowledge and information available is constantly increasing. With the development. of computer technology', the possibilities of collecting this knowledge and information, of storing them and transferring them from one point on the planet to another, are also continually expending.

These exchanges and contacts are accompanied by a growing tendency towards a standardization of tastes and behaviour. and a homogenization of certain patterns of life, thought and action. of production and consumption propagated by the uniform dissemination of the same television series, the same musical rhythms. the same clothes, and the same escapists dreams.

This growing conformity. which seems to follow an internal logic of its own, is gradually invading more and more areas of human activity. In its turn it generates distortions, since it tends to promote whatever conforms to it, and to destroy everything that resists it. Whale sectors of creativity are thus repressed. and societies multitude in their individuality and their distinctive structure. Carried to the extreme, this logic could lead to the ossification of mankind, since diversity if accepted on a footing of complete equality', is an essential and fertile source of vitality for both individual societies and the whole world.

However, as a kind of reaction of this trend. a renewed. explosive affirmation of individuality is emerging. Communities everywhere -- ethnic and national, rural and urban, cultural and religious -- are asserting their originality and endeavouring to take in hand, and defend with vigour- those features by reference to which their identity is defined.

The will to affirm and defend cultural identity. appears now one of the major driving forces of history. Far from representing a withdrawal into an immutable, self-enclosed past. it fosters a lively. original and constantly renewed synthesis. A sense of cultural identity thus appears more and more to be sine qua non of progress for individuals, groups and nations; it is the force that animates and underpins the collective will, mobilizes inner resources, and turns necessary change into creative adaptation.

It is today recognised that the notion of cultural identity less at the very heart of development problems, but it is only recently that this t'act' has own full acceptance by the international community. It is only in the last ten years that our understanding of development, its paths and aims, has broadened and deepened. Originally equated with simple, liner economic growth -- vital. certainly, in so far as an increase in the production of material goods makes a decisive contribution to the improvement of people's living conditions.

When such goods are equitably distributed -- development has increasingly been seen to be an infinitely more complex, comprehensive and multidimensional process. which is effective only if it is based on the will of each society to full itself. and only if it truly exercise each society's underlying identity.

Genuine development can only be generated from within. willed conducted by all the vital forces of the nation. It should therefore. encompass all aspects of life and involve all the energies of a community within which each individual, each occupational category and each social group has its part to play in the general effort. and has its share in resulting benefits.

As so often happens. this growing awareness of the true nature of development was largely brought about by the setbacks experienced in development and industrialized countries like India.

The development countries, tempted to catch up with the industrialized countries by following the same path, have sometimes endeavoured to adopt approaches to development which, seeking to achieve raid economic progress by often inappropriate men's, did not always produce the expected results. or even brought new constraints which not only reproduced but aggravated those which had handicapped the industrialized countries.
At the same time, the industrialized societies, considered to be the most developed, have also come to realise the very serious problems caused by economic growth seen as an end in itself. Damage to the natural environment is exacerbated by new constraints which threaten man's very existence as a social being attached to a community with which he can fully identified.

The whole international community is thus, today. in different ways, increasingly coming to accept the idea of integrated development in which economic. social and cultural factors are commonly linked and contribute together to progress. Culture. which is connected with all expressions of life and which, of every
human being and every people, is the expression of their highest values and their very sense of life, emerges as the factor which is to guide and humanise economic growth and technical progress.

Communications technology has made such strides in the last few years that it has revolutionized life and development in both industrialized and developing societies. Increasingly, people are encountering other cultures in their everyday lives, discovering other values, observing attitudes unfamiliar to them, and thereby coming to know the any faces of mankind. And son. through direct satellite television broadcasting, it will be possible to transmit knowledge globally, and the irruption of other cultures into every home will be a permanent fact.

Whether the role of the new instruments is beneficial or harmful, will depend on the way in which they are used by mankind. It seems indispensable to integrate the communications media into culture polices, for it would be vain to pretend that the media only raise problems of technical order. They' are bound to have repercussions on political attitudes, on social behaviour, on ways of thinking. and thus on culture in the broadest sense.

If development is the concern of all institutions of the United Nations system. cultural questions devolve exclusively on UNESCO. which has for some years. been making an original contribution to the problem of cultural development by launching and promoting the idea of -cultural policy.



An inter-governmental conference on cultural policy was held by UNESCO in Venice, in 1970. and subsequently, a number of regional conferences met in order to deepen and continue, in their specific contexts. the process of reflection begun by the international community. and the accelerate the evolution from a elitist concept of culture to that of cultural action committed to development. which would promote the fulfilment of individuals and communities.
'There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so-, implies that what we reallY call evil is good in disguise. There is great wisdom in tile words of Shakespeare. -There is some soul of goodness in thins evil, would men observantly distill it out". There is no doubt that the end of good is in evil and the end of all evils is good. for, we must remember that if we want to be good. first we must believe that we are bad: and there is ram* truth in the statement, that to' the truly good man. nothing appears evil.

Man is free to choose good or evil. However there is no evil: it is our imperfect vision which sees evil where there is only good. All is well with the world. It is not entirely bad. at the most it can be said that the world is imperfectly good: man ha5 to realize the good or perfection: to do so, he must have faith in hiroself as a free agent. and God who will complete his endeavours, arid in immortal life, to complete his task and perfect himself. to overcome all evil in himself. All this apart, one thing is certain, there is nothing either good or bad and vice-versa, but thinking makes it so.

No man has ever progressed to greatness, but through mistakes. There is curious mixture of good and bad in us. We cannot be entirely good and completely bad also. If we are totally good. we are gods. and if entirely bad then we become devils. We are, as such, neither good no devils, but simply human begins; therefore, what is good with us is bad to others, and the position is bound to change. We may be as good as we please, if we please to be good. To be good, we must be good. or it attaches itself not merely to this life, it is greater and more than the life.

All that a man does is but the expression of his inward thoughts. To work effectively, man must think nobly. Nothing is so practical as our thoughts. Our views of life mould our life; our viewed of God mould our soul; and clearer the thought and purer the soul. the more successful and happier a life is ensured. Life is thought; to think is to live. Tolstoy spoke the truth. -Men suffer from thinking, more than anything else."

We must remember that good is a virtue, and bad is a vice. In the ultimate conclusion, virtue survives and the vice perishes. Good is that which is useful, whereas bad is that which is harmful. That what is beneficial, gives pleasure and brings profits, is good. Bad is that which is despicable. In fact, good and bad is the source of inspiration of an action. The seed determines the fruit. If the actions are good, it is certain that they cannot be inspired by the evil intentions and in the same way, on evil action can be the result of good thoughts.

Bad is only bad. and in itself is curse. We cannot do evil to others without doing it to ourselves. There is nothing truly evils, but what is within us. It is aptly remarked. "To be free from evil thoughts is God's best gift."

No man is free from evil. In fact God alone is good, and those alone have greater degree of goodness in them. who walk upon that path shown by Him. Good is power, whereas bad is weakness of the human character. Good is good in itself. and it cannot be the means to an end. A person is said to be good because he has diligently cultivated those qualities and virtues, which have lasting value.



Therefore, good is intelligent conduct which can be developed by the man only when he has comprehensive understanding of the evil. What is good in one society, in one age, in one pattern of culture, may be bad in another. One man's meat is another man's poison. What is considered good in Western society, is beyond toleration in Pakistani society. Hence, there is nothing good or bad and vice-versa, but thinking makes it so.
Essay On The Stitch In Time Saves Nine.This proverb in its literal sense applies to rents in our clothes which may be easily mended at first, bus' if they are left unmended, grow bigger and bigger, until they c,nnot be repaired without a great deal of sewing. What is true of tortbuilding of a new pier.and it was evident that to repair it would cost as much as the visit to the town, half of the pier had sunk in ruin under the waves,naturally grew bigger year by year until, on the occasion of my last much labour.

But somehow the breach was left unmended, and a hole of moderate extent, that could have been repaired without the structure. When I first saw the pier there was to be seen in it only bound coast, at little damage was done to the most exposed part of waves. Nevertheless, in one of the violent storms that visit that iron clamps of iron, and it looked as if it could defy the utmost fury of the great stones of which it was composed were bound together by coast of Scotland. to defend the harbour of a fishing village.

The great expense by Government many years ago on the stormy west the proverb from my own observation. A beautiful pier was built at that needs mending, I may quote a striking illustration of the truth of boots, boxes, houses, ships, walls, bridges, in a word, of everything.The expediency of the stitch in time is exemplified not only by the destruction of material fabrics, the rents in which are neglected, but also in medicine, politics, and in intellectual and moral education.

How often has a doctor to tell his patient that, if he had been consulted earlier he might have effected an easy cure, but that now more drastic remedies must be employed. A literary man. for inkance. suffers from indigestion due to overwork and want of exercise. A short holiday in the country might restore him to good health if only he took it in time. But he has important work to do and is averse to taking any rest before he has finished it. So he goes on working until the symptoms become so threatening that he finds himself compelled to consult a doctor.

To his surprise he finds that entire change of diet and absolute idleness for a long period of time are now needed to cure a disease, the progress of which might have been arrested with very little trouble at an earlier stage.

It is the same with the body politic. The best politicians see in good time evils which, if allowed to go on unchecked, will swell to alarming dimensions. Thus the just discontent felt by the people of France on account of the privileges enjoyed by the clergy and nobles might have been appeased by remedial legislation, but, as the cure was delayed, the feelin of disaffection went on smouldering and gathering force, until at last it could no longer be extinguished and produced the horrors of the French Revolution.

That no revolution has taken place in England for the last two hundred years is due to the fact that English politicians have been willing to anticipate rebellion by timely reforms.

Essay On My Future Dreams Plans

Essay On My Future Dreams Plans.Dreams are the by-products of our sub-conscious state of mind. Dreams are of many kinds. But the dream which I had last Sunday was the most interesting dream of mine.

I saw many exciting scenes there - Twist, Ballroom and Shake were going on. As I was watching the spectacle of dance and drama, a beautiful girl gazed upon me.

Essay On The Funniest Incident In My Life

Essay On The Funniest Incident In My Life.One Sunday morning, I received an invitation from a friend of mine, Mr. Sohail. I had come back from U.K to my native place. So, he invited me to lunch. I got up early in the morning and started getting ready. My sister gave me a cup of tea early in the morning. Then I took my bath and got ready. My sister then again asked me to take some snacks and tea but I refused to take it as I was more interested in reaching my friend's house. She insisted upon me to take a heavy breakfast but I ignored her request.

I went out of my house and stood at the bus-stop. I boarded the bus. Meanwhile the conductor came and asked me to buy the ticket. I asked him to give me a ticket for Model town. The conductor frowned upon me saying. "It is going in the reverse direction, you get down at the next stop and catch another bus". I was baffled for some time. Then I alighted from the bus and again waited for the bus going to the Model town.
I got the bus and reached 20, Model town. But surprisingly when I reached his house.

I found the door locked. I was puzzled and thought whether I had come to the right place. But a little later, as I was gazing and pondering, a neighbour of my friend came and asked me. For what are you standing here? Do you want to meet some one?" I replied. "Yes. I want to see Mr. Sohail here". He immediately replied, -But he has living changed his house last Wednesday and has gone to Samanabad." I got his address from his neighbour.

Frustrated. I came back to the bus stop: I was feeling hungry. Soon it started drizzling. I was now in a fix as to what to do and what not. My confusion became all the more confounded by the torrential rains. I had refused to take morning breakfast in the hope that I would take it at my friend's house. At this stage my anger was mounting. I was cursing myself as well as my fate. But soon the anger got the better of myself. I made up my mind to meet Sohail.

I made my journey to Samanabad and reached his home rang the door bell. Kamal, a tiny tot ( Sohail's youngest brother) came out and greeted me with a "Hello, uncle." The moment I entered the drawing room. I saw the parents of Sohail sitting on the sofa. They offered me a seat and sat quite modestly. As I was about to talk about invitation extended to me by Sohail, Dolly (Sohail's sister) came with tea. She was looking like a pretty and vivacious damsel.

Now the elderly mother of Sohail began to talk very politely. "Look son, the invitation to tea was a joke, as you know today is First April -- Fool's Day. But you are fortunate that your proposal of marriage has been accepted Iv all the members of our family" I was thrilled to hear these words coming from the august lip of Dolly's mother. My joy knew no bounds. The facial expressions of Dolly were quite attractive.



Her silent looks pleased me as she was making silent expressions of love. We had the tea to our heart's content. I rushed from their house in order to convey this happy news to my parents. This day, indeed, was the funniest and happiest day of my life.
