I opine that to be successful in life a person must have strong desire for success. So long as other characteristics are concerned, a successful person may have some traits that I will discuss in this essay.

Successful people have a dream, desire, ambition and a strong motivation towards achievement. Besides, they are well focused towards goal and have ability to get the things done. Furthermore successful people take full responsibility for their actions and they are strong decision makers. Over and above, successful people find solutions to problems.

What is the most important animal in your country? Why is the animal important? Use reasons and specific details to explain your answer.

Bovine is the category of animal that is most important in India. Bovine includes cattle, cow, ox, buffalo etc. Reasons for their importance are elaborated in following paragraphs.

Animals were used to help mankind do work long before we had machines. Without these animals perhaps civilizations would not rise. Animals help the people in India for transportation of heavy goods across the deserts. Animals give food, meat and milk, etc; besides animal skins and fur were used for clothing. In the absence of those animals perhaps the civilization of India could not have risen.

The cow is considered to be a most sacred, holy and well respected animal in India even today. Since ages mankind consumes cow-milk as a food. Long ago in India’s early history the cow provided food for the family and was a symbol of wealth. Oxen are employed for transportation; pulling carts and cultivating the fields for raising crops and allied agricultural purposes. Even today the Hindu religion especially protects the sacred cow. No Hindu would ever eat cow meat; on the contrary Hindus would support the need to carefully protect them as important symbols in Indian society.

In some parts of India like Rajasthan and Kutch there are large desserts. The inhabitants there employ camels for transportation of men and materials. Elephants were born in the wild, but sometimes men caught and tamed them. These elephants pulled trees for building houses, carried heavy loads.

Summarizing, the cow is considered most sacred and important animal in India. Its protection is a paramount theme. Most Hindus respect the cow as a motherly figure for her gentle qualities and providing nurturing milk and its products for a largely vegetarian diet. It holds an honored place in society.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Only people who earn a lot of money are successful. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Certainly money is vital. But to say only those people who earn a lot of money are successful is not right. In my opinion those who know how to retain money for long periods and how to multiply money are the successful people. Additionally successful people know how to make money work for them.

There is a direct relationship between innovation and the money. More innovative a person is more successful he or she is. Assertiveness is a quality that is very important in achieving one’s goals. In order to get what one wants in life one has to try hard and develop all these qualities. Another important step in becoming successful is having a career planning. Networking greatly helps in career planning. Through networking and developing maximum number of contacts, one brightens his or her chances of success.

Innovation, assertiveness, career planning, networking, communication skills and relation building lead to “success” resulting into high money inflow but the converse may not be true. To achieve the common goal of success it is necessary to use all of the preceding ideas. By learning to build relationships one learn to deal with different types of people in different situations and therefore enable himself or herself to thrive well in working situations and in everyday life.

In conclusion, although with a great deal of money things can move forward with one’s development. Money is important to be able to carry out plans; however more money doesn’t always lead to greater success. Hence neither money can buy success nor can money be equated with success.

Some people believe that it harms a friendship when one borrows money from a friend.

Do you agree or disagree with this opinion and why? Use specific reasons and details to support your view.

I strongly agree to the above. In this essay I shall elaborate my view point.

First of all in this time of money crises every one is under great pressure. None has spare money to lend. Secondly everyone must plan expenses in proportion to one’s earnings. In bare necessity one can take loan from banks. People do not want to borrow from money lenders and banks because of three reasons: – (a) Payment of high interest rate, (b) Time bound repayment, (c) Failure to repay results into penal interest and legal litigations and court cases. When one borrows from a friend there is no payment of interest, borrower is least bothered about time bound payment because lender friend shall not resort to legal action though he suffers money hardships. Asking a friend to lend money reflects sheer selfish motive of the borrower. “Selfishness & Friendship can’t go together”. In light of friendship lender friend may not remind for returning money thus relations may be strained.

Also money is the root of all evils. Any hot argument in connection with, return of money between two friends may result into offences like stabbing or killing thereby resulting into miserable consequences for rest of the life.

Summarizing, I strongly opine that one should always “cut according to cloth” and spend in proportion to ones income. Secondly one must save regularly in order to meet with any contingencies. After all a friend also have his own expenses and responsibilities towards his or her family. It is not at all justified to borrow money from friends and any such borrowing money may harm the friendship.
