AN INDIAN FESTIVAL HOLI
India is the land of fairs and festivals. The Hindus, Muslims, and the Christians have their own festivals. Holi is an important festivals of Hindus. It’s the festival of joy and happiness. It is celebrated every in the month of March when the spring season pervades everywhere.
The legend behind it- The festival of Holi is celebrated in the memory of devotee Prahlad. His father, Hiranyakashyap, tortured him much but he did not give up his faith in god. Hiranyakashyap asked his sister, Holika, who when sit in fire she doesn’t burn to sit in burning fire with Prahlad. Holika was burnt to ashes but Prahlad was remained safe.
How it is celebrated- On the day of holi aheep of sticks is burnt. Women and men sing folk songs. They sprinkle colors and water on one another. They also use colored powder. Children smear colors on faces of one another even the oldest people pass mischievous remarks on one another. It removes social inequality. It creates the feelings of friendliness and mutual relationship among the people.
Time is money
It is rightly said that the time is most precious than money. Money once lost can be regained sooner or later, but time once lost is lost forever. There is a famous saying that time and tide wait for none.
A lost opportunity may spoil once life. Those who do not listen to the alarm of time, repent afterwards. A wise person waits for the proper and opportune time. If he makes full use of it he leads a successful and happy life. It is no doubt advisable to change the plans according to the time. Whatever the job be, it is of paramount importance for everyone to make use of time to be successful. Hence learn not to waste time.
The modern man in the name of progress has interfered too much with nature. As a result, environment has become polluted. Step by step, the precious gifts of nature are being destroyed. There are three kinds of pollution such as:
Air pollutions- Air pollutions are mostly caused by smoke coming out of the chimneys of factories, mills or workshops etc. Air pollutions may cause lung diseases, asthma, eye flu, headache etc.
Water pollution- Water is the basis of life but greed of man to get more and more money pollutes it. The owner of industries dump waste materials on the surface of earth or in rivers, lakes, ponds etc. Thus water is polluted. People uses this polluted water and invite a number of diseases.
Noise pollutions- Noise more than that of 80 decibels is said to cause deafness and some other diseases. In large cities the roar of vehicles is unbearable. Their engines and horns create noise pollutions which is harmful for people’s physical as well as mental health.
When a Shakespeare says-”A friend in need is a friend indeed”, he define friendship in a nutshell. It is the greatest virtue of humanity. It is one of the greatest gifts God has bestowed upon man. Friendship has it’s root in the origin of the universe. Ever since the mankind came into being the elements of friendship cropped up. A friend is said to be another himself. A true friend is a divine entity who not only provide timely assistance but also closely watches his friend’s steps. A true friend is a perfect embodiment of the best guide. It is always unconditional. It is natural flow of love between two hearts. It is not merely a duty but a worship that spreads the perfume of divinity.
A VISIT TO A HOSPITAL
Those who do not take care about their health, they suffered from diseases and have to admit in hospital. Once I went to meet my uncle there. He was admitted in the General ward. The surroundings of the hospital was attractive, neat and clean. There were different wards like-surgical wards, medical wards, etc. The patients were under the care of nurses and doctors. Nurses were dressed in white. They noted their temperature and give them necessary diet. They felt pulse.
Patients were lying the whole day. They were often sad and gloomy. The head of the of the doctors visited in the morning. He made inquiries about patients and gave instructions. There was a fixed time for visitors also. A ward is generally silent place.
But it was pity that some doctors and nurses were greedy and careless. They do not do much for the patients till they got money from them. The servant in the ward had to be tipped for their work.
A DAY IN AN ORPHANAGE
On my birthday, we decided to celebrate it in different way. We went to Mother Teresa Ashram.
First I and my younger sister played with the children. I distributed them games and materials like bat, ball, chocolates,etc. We decorated the hall with balloons and flowers. Then we celebrated the birthday. The mother and other sisters gave me blessings. The children presented me flowers to show their feelings for me.
Then, we had our lunch with them. We enjoyed their the whole day. It is our duty to help them. After coming back to home, I felt very sad fate of these orphans.
One night, I was lost in dreams. An angel appeared before me and blessed me that I will be an actress. I become very glad to hear it. It is the most attractive job, full of glamor and money. If I become an actress, I will not run after money and act in social films, and films for children.
It is necessary for an actress, to be mentally and physically fit. Therefore, I will do yoga and exercises regularly. I will also spent some money and time for social work.
Now a days they are blamed for their short dresses and actions. I would not do this and act which is fit for our Indian culture. I thanked god for this blessing. Early in the morning, a knock at the door disturbed my dreams, and I woke up.
LIFE IN A HOSTEL
Some students live with their parents and attend their school. A few students live in a hostel. The hostel life has many advantages. Students living in a hostel learn a number of good habits. They are taught to observe certain rules. Study periods are strictly observed. Law breakers are severely punished. They are bound to take part in co-curricular as well as curricular activities. They develop team spirit & quality of leadership. In a hostel one learns to lead a regulated life. Hence, every student must reside in a hostel at least for some time.
