2. MY FAVOURITE HOBBY
Our Hobbies reflect our personalities. My favourite hobby is Gardening, as a hobby has so many advantages. My hobby is gardening and it is my favourite way to pass time. It mainly consists of preparing the flower beds, sowing the seeds and taking care of the plants as they grow. I grow flowers and vegetables in the backyard. In this way, I can use my spare time productively and is beneficial for my health. Spending spare time in useless gossip or straining the eyesight viewing the T.V. All this is hardly a useful utilization of one’s leisure. You dig, you till , you soil with your hands, you even sweat in the process and the least of it all, you are constantly in the company of nature. You reap the fruits of your labour what else can be so satisfying than that. You are face to face with the spirituality of the matter how from such a small see gets produced such beauty. This is thus the most rewarding hobby if one develops it and enjoys it too.
3. MY FAVOURITE SPORT
Cricket is my favourite sport. Cricket is a sport that is widely played across the globe. It also called the Gentleman’s Game. I play cricket every day in the evening with my neighbourhood friends. Although we don’t obey the rules of cricket, it is a great source of physical exercise and entertainment. Before the game starts we toss a coin and whoever gets the head wins to choose between Batting and bowling. This is an outdoor game ; it is played with a bat, and ball along with the stumps. In the gar of cricket, each team competes with the other and the team with the highest score wins the game. There’s an umpire who observes the game and ensures that rules are being followed. Player have to listen to the umpire and the judgement of the umpire is the final decision. It is one the most famous games of India. My favourite cricketer is Virat Kohli. Everyone should play one or another sport to stay healthy and fit. Playing is a great source of entertainment and fun.
4. MY FAVOURITE DESTINATION
Shimla is my favourite summer holiday destination in India. It is a capital of the state Himachal Pradesh. I visited it along with my friends in summer. Before arrival to the beautiful Shimla I reserved the hotel through a tour operator company. It was a wonderful summer journey. There were many dazzling and wonderful attractive spots to watch like Jakhu hills, Lord Hanuman temple and local handcraft museum. Jakhu hills is a mind-blowing hill station and according to the tour operator the hill station is safest trekking place in India. Next morning we went on a trekking trip, really the trip was unforgettable. Next day we visited Tara Devi, according to local belief the shimla tour remains incomplete if a tourist never Goddess Tara Devi temple. At the first visit to the temple itself we got a very spiritual feeling.
5. MY FAVOURITE SUBJECT
I am Raju, studying intermediate first year. Today I want to talk about something that I believe is important for all of us. English, It my favourite subject. It’s both internal and international language. It’s the gateway to the modern world. Today 98% of the research work is being done in English language. If you have good communication skills, we can crack any job exams or interviews. Speaking in English is also a status symbol. It is an indispensible weapon in the hands of a student. So, we should not take it for granted. Rather we should try to enrich our English knowledge.
6. A VISIT TO THE ZOO
My name is Manish. Last week, on a beautiful Sunday morning, I went on an exciting trip to the Nehru Zoological Park, which is a popular place in our city. This famous park is not only one of my favorites, but it’s also a must-see for anyone who wants to have a fun and educational time. Our day started out bright and early, and we were excited for the amazing things we were about to see. There were animals from all over the world waiting for us when we walked into the zoo. The Lion’s Safari was the best part of our trip because it let us see these beautiful animals up close and hear their loud roars. One of the most interesting things to see was the white tiger’s amazing recovery story. It became a symbol of the zoo’s attempts to protect animals. It was both inspiring and educational to learn about their past and importance. To make our trip even more exciting, we took a memorable train ride inside the zoo. This gave us a new view of the park’s vast landscapes and animal enclosures. Overall, my trip to Nehru Zoological Park was one I will never forget. I learned a lot, had a lot of fun, and gained a new respect for the amazing animals that live on Earth. I will always treasure that day and remember it with great affection.

11. MOTHER’S DAY
One day is not enough to celebrate Motherhood. We should make every day as special as Mother’s Day to shower our love upon our mothers. A mother is the first teacher and the first friend of her children. We should acknowledge all the little things that our mother does for us. Everyday no other gift can be more special to our mother than her children’s love and respect. Though it is celebrated on the second Sunday of May, every year, yet, we should celebrate every day as Mother’s Day to make our mothers feel special.

Time is more precious than money is. Once the money is used, it can be earned again. But the time we have passed will never return. We all must have heard the famous proverb “Time and tide wait for none”. Time never waits for anyone are anything. In fact, we have to wait for the perfect time. There is a perfect time for everything: therefore, think about how precious the time is and utilise it ideally before time fails. People say money can buy everything but money can never buy time. So understand the value of time and use it wisely.
13. EFFECTS OF SOCIAL MEDIA
Social media is the most widely used tool by all age groups today but it is more popular among youth and students. It is like a local newspaper that keeps us updated about what is going on in the lives of our friends, relatives and loved ones. The most notable, it is a fabulous device for education. All the information for something required is just a click away. Students can educate themselves on many topics using social media. Apart from the positive sides social media is also a bit harmful to us. It completely depends on the user what he is extracting out of it.

Environment pollution means pollution which is degrading the environment. Pollution is increasing day by day so global warming is also increasing. Due to environmental pollution there is an imbalance in nature. So many birds, animals and plants are on the verge of extension day by day.

I found all the newly admitted students in the college. I moved to the round of the college.

16. ON EDUCATION
Education could be defined as the process of gaining knowledge skill benefits and values that help in growth and development of a person education is the most important asset it is as important as food shelter and close while the school and college education programs are relatively modern the learning process has been precise for a long time. Humans have
developed by learning themselves and Society must evolve. We can take the
example of Hunter gathers they used to pass down their knowledge of
hunting and harvesting food during different seasons. Today education is the most important aspect of society as it helps in providing a job at the start of a family. Education helps in understanding the world in a better way.
let’s take an example to understand that a person who knows about corruption and other social issues play an important role in fighting it
rather than a person who is an aware of anything.
17. COMMUNICATION IS LIFE
Today I want to talk about Communication is Life Once the ability to
communicate can spell the difference between success or failure in all
aspects of living you will notice that those people you know who are
successful in their endeavours generally have a high ability to
Those who do not do not communicate are not. Just a way of getting along
in life it is the heart of life it is by thousands of percent the senior
factor in understanding life and living in successfully. we instrictively
the great artist painter or musician and society as a whole look up on
them not quite ordinary beings and they are not but the understanding and
skilled use of communication is not only for artist it is for anyone. In
examing the whole subject of communication one is up to discover if he
takes a penetrating look that there are very few people around him who
are actually communicating, but that they are lot of people who think
they are communicating who are not the sometimes is that is better not to
communicate them to communicate ,but that is never really the case
communication is the solvent for any human problem and understanding, of
communication itself was not available for Scientology.
18. GLOBAL WARMING
The effect is quite important for life on earth, without the effect the
sun’s radiation would be reflected back into the atmosphere freezing the
surface and making life impossible. However when greenhouse gases in
Access amount get trapped seriously begin to appear the polar ice cap
begins to melt, leading to rise in sea levels, further the greenhouse
effect is accelerated when polar ice caps and ice metals this is due to
the fact that the ice reflect 50% to 70% of the suns race back into
space. But without ice the solar radiation gets absorbed. Sea water
reflects only 6% of the sun’s radiation back into the space.
When a more frightening is the fact that the poles contain large amounts
of carbon dioxide trapped within the ice if this ice melts it will
significantly concrete to global warming. The related scenario when the
phenomenon goes out of control is the Runway greenhouse effect. The
scenario is essentially similar to any apocalypse but it is all too real.
This has never happened in the earth’s entire history, it is speculated
that to the have occurred on Venus millions of years ago ,Venus was
thought to have an atmosphere similar to that Earth but due to Runway of
greenhouse effect surface temperature and around the planet begin rising.
If this occurs on the earth the Runway greenhouse effect will let to many
and placement scenarios temperature will rise hot enough for oceans to
evaporate once the ocean evaporate The Rocks will start to sublimate
under heat in order to prevent such a scenario proper measures have to be
taken to stop climate change.

21. MY FAVOURITE MOVIE
Last weekend, I rewatched my all-time favorite movie, “3 Idiots.” This film, a masterpiece in Indian cinema, holds a special place in my heart. It’s not just a movie; it’s an experience that resonates with the lives of many, including mine. The story revolves around three engineering students, Rancho, Farhan, and Raju, who challenge the norms of their rigid education system while navigating the complexities of friendship, love, and life aspirations. What makes this movie unique is its perfect blend of humor, emotions, and life lessons. The character of Rancho, portrayed brilliantly, is not just a character but a philosophy of life that teaches us to chase excellence, not success. The most memorable scene for me is the ‘Chatur’s speech’ scene, where the intricacies of rote learning and understanding are hilariously yet thoughtfully portrayed. Another scene that touched my heart is the emotional climax where the true identity of Rancho is revealed, unfolding a series of surprises and realizations. The film’s music is another aspect that adds depth to the storytelling. Each song, from the joyful “All is Well” to the inspiring “Give Me Some Sunshine,” is not just a melody but a narrative in itself, resonating with the different stages of student life. “3 Idiots” is not just a movie; it’s a life lesson on the importance of passion, friendship, and thinking differently. Every time I watch it, I find a new perspective, a fresh lesson, and a renewed sense of motivation. It’s a movie that has shaped my thoughts and continues to inspire me every day.
22. MY DREAM JOB
Ever since I was a child, my dream has been to become a doctor. This aspiration stems from a deep desire to help others and make a tangible difference in their lives. The idea of being able to heal and provide comfort to those in pain is what drives me. I am particularly drawn to the field of medicine because of its unique blend of science and human interaction. Being a doctor is not just about understanding the human body and diseases; it’s also about understanding people, their fears, and their hopes. It involves a level of empathy and compassion that I find both challenging and rewarding. My goal is to specialize in pediatrics, as working with children and making a positive impact during their formative years is especially appealing to me. The resilience and innocence of children inspire me, and I want to contribute to a future where every child has the opportunity to live a healthy life. Becoming a doctor is undoubtedly a long and challenging journey, but it’s one I am willing to undertake for the satisfaction of improving and saving lives. It’s a profession that demands dedication, continuous learning, and a heart full of compassion — qualities I am committed to cultivating throughout my career.
My ultimate career aspiration is to become a successful businessman, where I can merge innovation with impact. I am fascinated by the challenge of turning ideas into profitable ventures that also benefit society. The dynamic nature of business, from strategy formulation to the thrill of market competition, excites me. I envision creating a company that not only excels in its field but also promotes sustainable and ethical practices. Leadership, risk-taking, and decision-making are skills I am keen to develop, as they are vital in navigating the complex and ever-changing business landscape. Networking, understanding global market trends, and cultivating a team of diverse, talented individuals are also aspects I look forward to. For me, being a businessman is not just about financial success; it’s about creating something meaningful that can leave a lasting impact on the world.
23. LOVE AND LIFE

We never expected or present us with obstacles. We must overcome, but friends remember within these challenges like the opportunity for growth and transformation to get them from the essence of our existence reminding us to save every moment and life and live with an open heart.

27. SEASONS AND HUMAN LIFE
Seasons and Human Life… The four seasons of the year are a natural cycle that has been observed by humans for thousands of years. These four stages have been used as a metaphor for different stages of human life: winter, spring, summer, and fall. Each season represents a different phase of life and each has its own unique characteristics and challenges. For instance, winter is a time of rest and preparation. It is a time to slow down and take stock of one’s life. Spring is a time of growth and new beginnings, a time to plant seeds and watch them grow. Summer is a time of abundance, warmth, and joy. It is a time to enjoy the fruits of one’s labour. Fall is a time of harvest and letting go. It is the time to reap what one has sown and prepare for the next cycle of life. The changing of the seasons can also affect human behaviour as hormone levels fluctuate with the seasons. This cyclical nature of life and seasons reminds us of the constant change in life and the need to adapt and grow with these changes. Moreover, just as each season brings its own beauty and challenges, so does each stage of life. Each phase comes with its own set of experiences, learning, and memories. Embracing each season of life helps us appreciate the journey and grow as individuals. So, as the seasons change, let us remember to appreciate and make the most of each moment.

I have seen students passionately engage in debates, lead social movements, and advocate for change, driven by a desire to shape a better future. Their involvement in politics goes beyond mere academic interest; it’s about taking responsibility for the society they are inheriting. This engagement, however, is a delicate balance. While it’s crucial for students to be politically aware and active, it’s equally important for them to remain focused on their education.
