Let me bring to your kind notice the in sanitary conditions of Greater Chennai. Sanitary conditions of Urban are in a mess. There are no sweepers worth the name to clear the garbage that lies in heaps and mounds at almost all the places here. The drainages are blocked, water flows on the streets. No one can walk on the roads because of the foul smell coming from the mounds. People are careless and throw domestic waste in open space. This invites the attention of stray cattle, pigs and other animals. People do not make use of their dustbins. As a result, fear of the spread of diseases like cholera and gastroenteritis are possible. There is a great need of the regular visit by the sanitary dept officials. The officials should meet the residents to maintain hygienic conditions all around.

Hey Vani,

I know we meet every day in school but I couldn’t wait till then to tell you this. I bought a solar-powered cell phone today. Air bell has launched this product very recently to promote usage of renewable sources of energy. Its widespread popularity lured me into buying this product. Itis very easy to recharge this cell as our tropical country experiences bright sunlight almost 10 months in a year. It is very handy. Efficient and appealing to the mass as it uses sun as a charger. So, poor people who don’t have access to electricity find it very economical. It also reduces risks of the danger which radiation poses to our sensory organs.

Let’s meet up soon today so that I tell you more about its features.

Take care

1. You make the following notes after reading about the disappearance of bird habitats from city forests and parks. Write an article in 100-120 words stressing upon the need for bringing back the birds to the city. You are Sonu/Sonalika.

City Parks Oust Bird Population

– Sonu

While outwardly things appear idyllic, the lack of bird sound appears wanting. The park’s attendants are concerned with its depleting bird population. The koyal, a regular summer visitor has dwindled in number and the sparrow, a common sight amidst the flower beds and pathways, has disappeared altogether.

The authorities cited the overuse of insecticides behind this disappearance. Cutting down of roadside trees reduces nesting spots for the birds’ Several fledglings fall to the ground from the branches as this exercise is performed without regard to the nesting season. Communication towers on rooftops of adjacent homesteads have taken a toll of the sparrow population. Creating nesting places under eaves and placing water and grain containers in gardens or balconies will alter the status quo.

2. Due to growing materialism, there is a shift in the values of youngsters. They continue pestering their parents for items like mobile phones, digital cameras, bikes, etc. for personal use even though there is no genuine need for these gadgets. Taking help from the MCB unit ‘Children’, write an article in about 120 words expressing your views on the same. You are Sunil/Swati.

The Deteriorating Values

– By Swati

The growing materialism in society is leaving a profound impact on the younger generation. They are growing up in an environment which creates a desire to acquire all that is in their capacity. It has changed childrens perspective towards life. For them, materialism is happiness. They pester their parents to fulfil their demands for gadgets, etc. even though there is no genuine need for the same. Children want these in order to impress their friends.

Materialism makes us greedy. We try to show off what we have and are embarrassed if we do not have something that others possess. The world has become a place for the competition where everyone aims to be ahead of other Youngsters need to understand that money does not bring happiness. It is more important to be content. We need to have values, friends, relations and, above at our family’s love and support to lead a happy life.

3. Education should not allow any discrimination. All children have an equal right to education. Yet we find that in many families, girls are not given the education they desire. Taking help from the unit on Education, the following points and your own-ideas, write an article in about 150 words on the topic.

“The Importance of Educating the Girl Child”. You are Arun / Anu.

Importance of Educating the Girl Child

– By Anu

A child’s first teacher is the mother but in our country, no importance is given to the education of a girl child. It seems a wastage of money to most of the parents. We must understand that if we educate a man, we educate an individual but if we educate a woman, we educate the entire family. Education is beneficial for the female herself and her family. An educated girl can take decisions with an open mind and can fight against all social evils like child marriage, female infanticide, dowry, domestic violence.

It is a fact that educated mothers will always impart education to their daughters because they know that there is no difference in the learning ability or interest between a boy and a girl. Educating a girl child means improving their standard of work along with gender discrimination at work. They can be imparted vocational training also to make them self¬sufficient and financially secured. So, for the wholesome progress of our society and the upliftment of our society, it is a must to educate the girl child.

Last week, I went to Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary, which is located about 75 km from Chennai.

There were around 2000 migratory birds on that day I visited. Of all the birds I had seen, a particular bird impressed me very much. Its name is Flamingo.

Mostly adult Flamingos were seen with Juveniles at the lake. The color of this bird is pink. Flamingos are powerful fliers. When flying in a flock the speed will be as high as 55km per hour. They hold their mouth upside down while feeding, so they can filter out their food while swimming the water.

I was very happy seeing the Flamingos family.

Convey my regards to your parents.

Respected Principal, Teachers and My Dear Friends,

I am delighted to have this golden opportunity of expressing my views on the ROLE OF WOMEN on the eve of “WOMAN’S DAY”.

In the past, women were considered inferior to man. Today, Woman are as good as men in every aspect. They have proved their worth. Name any field of progress wherein they have not left their mark? They are known for their sincerity, sensibility, hard work and timely wit. They have never failed in using them in time of need. Women like Saina Nehwal and Shreya Ghosal have excelled in their respective task. Being woman myself, I feel tremendous power in myself and see no reason to lag behind. I am proud to be a woman. We know that modern world cannot afford to leave women as they have time and again made the world realise their strong presence.

I acknowledge the vital role the women play for the emancipation of the society and their immense contribution in shaping and creating a strong nation with their spirit of dedication, devotion and duty.

Thank you.

2. Some young people have little leisure time and are under a lot of pressure to work hard in their studies. What do you think are the causes of this? What solutions can you suggest? Prepare speech titled as ‘Leisure is necessary for hard work’.
Good Morning!

Respected Principal Madam. Worthy teachers and my dear friends,

Today I would like to present my views on the topic ‘Leisure is necessary for hard work’.Some young people find themselves with very little leisure time. I believe there are two, main causes of this situation. The first is parental pressure and the second is competition in our educational system. Every parent wants to see his or her child doing well in school and go on to have a successful career. This means that they exert pressure on their children to spend hours each day studying at home. Soipe even arrange extra tuition for their children. As a consequence, their leisure time is extremely limited and the pressure on them is considerable.

The second cause is related to the higher education system. Only high graded candidates are allowed to get good streams of studying for the future. This contributes to the pressure on teenagers since they must work long hours to have any chance of success.

One solution to the problem is for parents to be made aware of the effects of the pressure they put on their children. Schools should inform parents that too much pressure can lead to anxiety Stress and depression. Sometimes out of depression they commit suicide as they have no courage to face the parents and teachers scolding. They should be shown ways in which they can help their children lead more balanced lives with a reasonable amount of leisure time. Another effective measure in order to overcome competition and suicide cases of students, is necessary to apply equal grading system to the students so that life seems to be worth full to live instead of stressful.

Thank you.

3. In modem life, we have to face many problems, one of which is traffic congestion becoming more serious day after day. It is said that the high volume of vehicles, the inadequate infrastructure and irrational distribution of the development are the main reasons for increasing traffic jam. Prepare a speech on traffic congestion. Write about the cause as well as the solution to it.
Good morning to one and all.

The major cause leading to traffic congestion is the rise in number of vehicles and over-population and the development of economy. To solve this problem, the government should encourage people to use public transportation or vehicles with small size such as bicycles or increase tax on private vehicles.

The inadequate infrastructure cannot handle the issue of traffic is also a crucial reason. The public transport such as a bus, the subway train is not available in many routes and their quality is ’ very bad. Besides, the highway road network is incapable of meeting the requirement of an increasing number of vehicles. Coping with these difficulties, the government should make an investment in the traffic facilities, like build overpasses and more lanes in the streets.

Apparently, the irrational distribution of development and the lack of conscience make the traffic worse and worse. The head offices, the universities or hospitals often located in the centre of city attracting a heavy flow of people in rush hour. To handle this situation, the government should make proper rules, for instance, some university or office will be moved to the outskirt of the city. It is necessary to encourage people to obey the traffic rules which will greatly change the problem of traffic. Finally, its high time we are aware of the disadvantages as well as the solutions to traffic congestion. With great effort from each individual and the government, our society will be definitely cleaner and well organized.

Thank you.

4. You are required to speak on ‘Pollution’ in the school morning assembly. Prepare your speech taking help from the following points. You may use ideas contained in the unit ‘Environment’. Write your answer in your answer sheet using hot more than 120 words.

Respected Principal, dear teachers and my lovely friends. Today I stand before you to speak on pollution. Environmental pollution is one of the major and serious problems that is being faced by developing countries. The ecological balance of the earth is being threatened by it. Air and water are polluted by the toxic constituents. Noise pollution has destroyed the calm and serenity of our surroundings.

The main sources of pollution are increasing vehicular traffic and garbage. The petrol or diesel being used in the vehicles emits toxic smoke which contains lethal gases like carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide. All those inhaling these gases contract deadly diseases. These are like bronchitis, asthma and other breathing problems. The accumulating garbage emits the foul smell. It is the birthplace of many contagious diseases. Various leather and chemical industries pollute both the air and the water by belching out poisonous smoke and effluents in watercourses.

The increasing feeling of trees, building of darns and upcoming of congested localities has played havoc with the dean environment. Human life is in real danger. We need to plant more trees at every possible patch of land. I understand that there is also a need of shifting industries and mills established in congested colonies to safer places. To control traffic carpools must be made so that the emission level from them is contained within prescribed levels.

Thank you all!
