Would you prefer to live in a traditional house or in a modern apartment building? Use specific reasons and details to support your choice.

I would prefer live in a traditional house to a modern apartment. In this essay I will elaborate how living in a traditional house is superior to modern apartment.

Unlike an apartment, traditional house has four side open land that is available to me. I can have a front yard garden to sit and relax and in the back yard I can develop kitchen garden that I am fond of. In the front garden I can develop variety of beautiful flowers like rose, lily, and lilac, jasmine with a lush green lawn with go-carting that I love the most. In the kitchen garden I can develop some vegetables like peas, chilies, lady’s finger, French beans etc. also I can grow and develop a few trees giving fruits like mango, apple custard apple and guavas etc. Gardening is a very creative hobby and I can enjoy it.

Secondly, I love to have complete freedom, independence and privacy that I can get in a traditional house because either it is fenced or it is encompassed with compound wall all around. Over and above there is no disturbance from the other people as there is no common wall that I got to share with someone else. The biggest advantage of having a traditional house is that I am the owner of that entire property including land. I have full liberty to rent it out, lease it or sell it in part or in full, for that matter. In apartment, how modern it may be, there what I posses are only the four walls and I have to bother about the likes and dislikes of other occupants.

In nutshell, I would prefer to live or have a traditional house to an apartment because of its aforesaid tangible and intangible advantages to an apartment.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Television, Newspapers, Magazines, and other media pay too much of attention to the personal lives of famous people such as public figures and celebrities. Use specific reasons and details to explain your opinion.

I agree that media highlights the personal lives of famous people and celebrities.

Newspapers, Magazines, Television and Internet are the most popular means of mass communication. If you look at any glossy news magazine, front glossy cover page has a photograph of one or the other celebrity. Look at any newspaper, the first page talks of politically prominent person with their photographs. On news channels on a television there are repeated news of celebrity’s personal lives like a particular person’s gorgeous house, the latter’s past and present love affairs, his married life, latter’s family members, and their weddings even their pets. This sounds really very funny and boring.

Some time back, there was wedding of an Indian film star’s son with a film actress. Although date of marriage was somewhere in March, all TV channels, magazines and news papers were busy from February till almost May giving news right from pre-preparation of a wedding till the honeymoon of the newlyweds. Four big months spent just for wedding news.

The said news included what all religious temples they visited, which all Astrologers they met, what all rituals they performed before the wedding, during the wedding and after the wedding. Because some prominent politicians and Industrialists happen to be their friends, those were also excessively highlighted by the entire media. This wedding has hardly any significance for a commoner.

In conclusion, media must emphasize on national economy, business, current affairs, and education and alike that affects the common men. News of celebrity’s personal life etc can be given second priority and not the first priority.

In some countries, teenagers have jobs while they are still students. Do you think this is a good idea? Support your opinion by using specific reasons and details.

In my opinion it is absolutely wrong to engage teenagers for paid work. This is nothing but engaging “child labor” which is not only wrong it is illegal rather. In this essay I will elaborate my viewpoint.

Teenagers have every privilege to study, play and enjoy. Further they go to universities for further studies and make their careers bright into the field of their choice. At such a tender age of the teenagers if they are made to work for money as Child Labors it not only inhuman but that is the gross deterioration of morality and human values.

Legal working age for any one is 18 years and above. At this age one is fully mature and understands his own good and bad. Also one knows difference between risky and safe and can take care of him or herself and protect from dangers. While teenagers are immature to know this and may endanger themselves in the process of working thereby may be victimized in some or the other accident and injure themselves. Thus causing temporary partial or permanent partial or total disablement that ruins the life of the teenager and the victim has to creep all though his or her life span. This is most pathetic. No compensation in form of money to any high value can get back what the teenager loses by way of disablement.

In nut shell, employing teenager as “Child Labor” is absolutely wrong, illegal and inhuman. One must not forget that teenagers are the future of our nation and we must protect them, educate them, and develop them to their optimum capacity and build a powerful nation.
