A Campaign Against Polythene Bags
Date: Feb 20, 2020
Polythene bags are not only dangerous for us but also for our environment. Main reason behind this is that they don't decompose because they are non- biodegradable. Thus, they generally choke the sewers, harmful for fertility of soil, and dangerous for animals as they can swallow them. As responsible citizens, it is a duty of all of us to make public aware about it and find a middle solution to remove this problem and clean the city. So 'The Residents Welfare Association' of our area has organised a campaign against the use of polythene bags. Our slogan was: Say No to Polythene Bags.'

Today in India our roads have become much overloaded by vehicles. While being on the road, road safety is very necessary. Today road accidents are the leading cause of deaths in India. In our country thousands of people lose their lives in road accidents every year. If road users are well aware of road safety rules, the number of deaths in road accidents can be reduced. Everyone should learn the traffic and safety rules at a very early age to perform safe behaviours in the later life. Everyone going on the road, especially drivers, must be to the left and let other vehicles pass on the opposition direction to the right. Drivers should be in slow speed while villages people pa over-taking or turning on the roads. People should take extra precaution while going on the over-crowded of cattle died. Wat roads. Bikers or people using two-wheel vehicles must wear helmets of superior quality. Speed of the vehicles should be within the speed limits and slow especially in the areas of school, hospital, colony etc. Every vehicle on the road should maintain the right distance among them to avoid accidents. Everyone who use road should be well aware of the road signs and must follow traffic rules. Everyone must keep in mind all the road safety rules and regulations.
Polythene bags are the major source of environment pollution. They are bio nondegradable. It means that these don't degenerate into biological waste like plants, clothes, paper etc. When we purchase home things from the market, shopkeeper gives us things in a polythene. It has become very common. It is a source to bring the things comfortably to home but when it is of no use. We throw it without caring the problems which it will bring in future. When it is burnt many poisonous gases are released. These polyethene block the drains sewerage. People should be made aware of the drawbacks of uses of polythene. We should request shopkeepers to use paper bags instead of polythene bags. Government should organise campaigns on this issue to make the public conscious. Lastly strict actions should be taken in order to put ban on the polythene bags.
It was around the beginning of March with outbreak of pandemic, people suddenly found something they had been complaining always on not having enough – “Time”. Suddenly, there was too much time, for all of us, especially students! A lot of creative content had come about during the lockdown- renovating homes, indoor photography, choreography, dance routines, songs you name it. But that is not how I spent my time. I had spent my first month in a lot of research into the newly named “Covid-19”, enough to know that the name of the virus was actually SARS-CoV-2 and not corona virus. “Things would go back to normal.” However, I realised that this is our new reality – This is the new normal. First, I began with restarting my exercise routine – which consisted of a few push – ups, squats, curls, planks, sit- ups. Playing badminton is a fun exercise that my sister and I started to partake in. Next, I started work on a project that has long been a dream of mine- to speak, learn Japanese. What I found was that I am quite old and finding it hard to learn a new language as I am still stuck on the basics. Next, my online classes started and boy it could not have come at a better time! I was beginning to forget the basics but with the sudden injection of projects, assignments, review classes and discussions, I found my days filled up again with research and actual study which I, strangely enough, had missed a lot. It was also during this time that my contact(online) with teachers and classmates had been re-ignited. With all these tests and projects, I felt more and more productive as the days went by. Lastly, was the time spent with my family and prayer. I am very fortunate that all the members of my family were safe and sound at home. All this free time gave us a much-needed break to just relax and to get to know each other better. We also spent time praying together for all the various issues that were currently affecting the world.
All in all, I feel that my time in the lockdown has been productive (except the first month), and I have a new outlook on the value of life, of time and to being productive. I am sure everyone has their story to tell.
The greatness of a country depends on the quality of its citizens. An ideal citizen fights for his rights. But he first performs his duties and then demands his rights. An ideal citizen knows the value of his vote. Therefore, he votes for the most deserving candidate no matter to which party he belongs. An ideal citizen is broad-minded. He does not hate the people belonging to the other castes or religions. An ideal citizen follows the path of reason. He is not a slave to old customs and traditions. He is ready to adopt the good wherever he finds it and give up the evil wherever it may be. An ideal citizen always keeps himself away from evil. Because he does no wrong, he is fearless and always holds his head high. An ideal citizen is law-abiding and has respect for the rights of his fellow-citizens. He is hard working and earns his living only through honest means. It is on such ideal citizens that the future of a country depends.
Reading of newspapers has become a habit for most of the people. Newspapers have a very important place in our life. A good newspaper is very useful for society. It satisfies the tastes of all kinds of people. A newspaper gives us latest news about the national and international events. For businessmen, there are advertisements. There is a sports page for the lovers of sports. The unemployed people can look for vacancies. There are matrimonial columns for the unmarried people. A good newspaper is a watch-dog of democracy. It fights against the injustice of the government. It informs people about what is happening in the society. A good newspaper is a source of entertainment also. Its Sunday edition carries articles and stories. Thus, newspapers have become an important part of our life.
Games give us pleasure. They make our body stout and muscular. They expand our lungs, increase the blood circulation and fill the body with strength and vigour. They teach us many good qualities. They inculcate in us a spirit of sportsmanship, punctuality, regularity of habits, team spirit, leadership and obedience. They provide us a good training for playing the game of life in a sportsman's way. Each game is played under certain rules which are to be obeyed by all the players. Some games teach us obedience and discipline. They also teach us the importance of co-operative efforts. Above all they teach us how to command and how to obey.
Addiction to anything is bad in itself, but addiction to drugs is the worst of all. Drug is the other name of death. So, drug addiction is an invitation to death. Drug is a slow poison. It kills the addict by inches, slowly but surely. It saps all his energy, youth and vitality. It makes him hollow from within like a coconut. The addict may forgo his food but he must get his quota of drug. Drug kills a person not only physically but morally as well. He may beg or borrow, snatch or steal to get drug. He loses all sense of good and bad. Immediate steps should be taken to root out this evil from the society. Otherwise, a total social ruin will not be far off.
There are a large number of historical buildings all over India. But the Taj Mahal at Agra is the most famous among them. It is one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. Every year thousands of tourists from all over the world visit the Taj. It was built by the Mogul Emperor Shahjehan. He built it in the memory of his dear wife Mumtaz. It was completed in twenty-two years. It cost Shahjehan more than three crores of rupees. It is made of white marble. It stands on the right bank of the Yamuna. There is a minaret in each of its four corners. There are two tombs in it. One of them is of Mumtaz Mahal. The other is of Shahjehan. There are beautiful gardens on three sides of the Taj. On the fourth side flows the Yamuna. The Taj looks very beautiful in the light of a full moon. It is a dream in marble.
Franz saw a crowd in the town hall in front of the bulletin- board. It was the place from where all their bad news had come - the lost battles, the drafts, and the orders of the commanding officer.

Sahib was not happy on getting a new job at a tea stall because working for a master meant losing one's freedom and his 'carefree look.' He was not happy with this forced life. He wanted to be his own master.
Sahib was a poor rag picker in the short story 'The Lost Spring' by Anees Jung. The meaning of his name is Saheb -E - Alam. It means 'The Lord of The Universe.' But irony is that he worked as a servant at a tea-stall. He was not master but had to follow others' orders.

The poet's mother has been compared to the late winter's moon to bring out the similarity of aging and decay. Poet's mother has an ashen face. It looks like a corpse. It has lost its lustre, shine and strength of youth. Late winter's moon also looks in the same way, dull and obscure.
The 'map' is a bad example because it doesn't include the dirty streets of the slums. The children here in slums live in the most unhygienic conditions. But 'Map' includes only cities, not slums. So is a bad example for children according to the poet.
Shakespeare is called wicked because there is no connection between Shakespeare's works and the sad lives of slum children. These children have gloomy future with no brightness at all.
The poet tells us about the difficulties faced by slum children. They have to live a very gloomy life. They live in narrow lanes in slums with no lights & hygienic food with them. They have to work in the dirt of the slum. Primary school of the slum doesn't attract them. Actually, there is nothing that is attractive & bright in their lives.
When we count up to twelve and keep still, it will help us to achieve a sense of togetherness. We will not be busy in mundane activities of daily life but on the contrary, we will have time to introspect in this silence of peace. The poet compares this state of being to the Earth that seems quiet and yet nurtures so much life on it.
The list includes the sun and the moon. There are young and old trees that give pleasant shade for gentle sheep. There are daffodils, clear rills and musk- Rose's growing in the forest brake. Then there are lovely tales that we have heard or read.
A thing of beauty leaves a permanent impression on our minds. It stays in our imagination for ever. It never passes into nothingness. Our imagination adds new colours to it. Its loveliness increases every time we think of it. Thus, it becomes a joy for ever.
There is air of general depression among human beings. There is a terrible dearth of truly noble souls. Many evil and mysterious things happen daily. It is hard to understand why that happens. Men pass their days in gloom.
