C. Article Writing

Question 1.
While travelling by train, you happen to overhear the following conversation between two mothers.
Mrs. Bhatt : Manoj is very tense about his examinations. I fear he doesn’t do anything rash.
Mrs. Dixit : My son showed signs of nervous breakdown. So I took him to a psy-chiatrist. Then I found that he was taking sleep-depriving drugs.
Mrs. Bhatt : I think there are a lot of Yoga exercises that can help them during the examination time.

On hearing this dialogue you decide to write an article for the school magazine on ‘Examination based stress and means by which students could overcome them’.
Answer:
Examination time is the time to revise all that one has studied throughout the year, memorise formulae, mug up history lessons, and brush up experiments.

But then this is also the time for nervous breakdowns and stress related disorders.

The urge to perform best at the time of the final examinations is significant enough to trigger stress related disorders in the students.

Some react on the hyper side and develop anxiety while others react on the lower side and end up with depression. Both are equally dangerous. Long term suppression or repression of emotions is the cause of most lifestyle disorders.

In the examination system that prevails today, the capabilities and knowledge of students are being judged only by the performance in the final exam. The right way is to evaluate the students throughout the year and then decide about the performance.

During examination time, many students get addicted to tea, coffee, alcohol, smoking or sleep depriving drugs. Once addicted the addiction is permanent.

All these drugs in the long run are harmful to the body. Tea, coffee and alcohol-all increase symptomatic activity in the body resulting in increased heart rate and blood pressure.
The resultant performance anxiety may actually end up in performing worse.

The best answer, therefore, is to work hard throughout the year not keeping everything for the last moment. Many avenues are there to de-stress the mind.

Learning stretching exercises like ‘Jadasana’ helps remove boredom and regular cervical and back exercises help in maintaining the correct posture and keeping away backache and cervical pain that are common nuisances at the time of examinations.
Deep breathing exercises such as ‘Pranayama’ help in relaxing the body and mind. Giving a break to the brain by diverting attention to something else like watching I.V. or hearing music can help increase the creativity. Most importantly, a balanced diet should be taken and addictive substances should be avoided.

Question 2.
Manish is writing an article on ‘Ice cream’ for the School Magazine. He referred to an encyclopedia and made the following notes.
Use the information in the notes to complete his article:
Origin : China – Circa 2000 B.C., brought to Europe by Marco Polo in 13th Century, English colonists took recipe to US in 18th Century.
Manufacture : Earlier, ingredients placed in metal containers surrounded by ice and salt mixture. Now, ingredients mixed, pasteurized, homogenized, cooled, frozen, beaten until smooth.
Types : Parfait, mousses – not beaten during freezing, Tortoni – sprinkled with powdered dry fruits, spumoni mousses + fruit and nuts, lolly – water ice on stick.
Answer:
Ice cream is a popular frozen confection made from fat, milk solids, and sugar. Ice cream probably originated in China around 2000 BC.

The recipe for water ices was first brought to Europe by the Italian traveller Marco Polo in the late 13th century, with ice cream becoming popular in the 17th century. English colonists took the recipe to the United States in the early 18th century.

Early production methods consisted on placing the ingredients in metal containers, surrounded by a freezing mixture of ice and coarse salt, and mixing them until smooth.

In modem plants the basic ingredients are poured into a tank, where they are mixed and pas-teurized. The mixture is then homogenized to break up particles of butterfat, cooled, piped to a freezing tank, and beaten until smooth; at this stage nuts or fruits are sometimes added.

The ice cream emerges from the freezing tank partially frozen and is packed into containers that are stored in a gerated room until hard.

Several forms of ice cream are made. French ice cream is enriched with egg yolks; parfaits and mousses are ice cream preparations that have not been beaten during the freezing process; biscuit tortoni is a rich ice cream sprinkled with powdered almonds or macaroons; and spumoni is a mousse-like ice cream to which fruits and nuts have been added. Soft ice cream, made of the same ingredients as ordinary’ ice cream, is sold as it comes from the freezer before hardening. An ice lolly is frozen ice cream or water ice on a stick.

Question 3.
You are Prakash Ojha of class XII. You observe that there is a steep decline in reading habits amongst children.
The major cause for this is the T.V. Write an article in the newspaper on, “Ways to promote reading”. (M.P. 2016)
Answer:

Ways To Promote Reading

The habits of children are changing with the change and advancements science has bought in the society. Earlier the pass time for children were books but with the advancements and new discoveries television has took the place of books.

As today the scene is there are more than 100 channels. Children get booked with the cartoon channels most of their time schools, teachers and parents must take initiative to promote reading habits.

There should be compulsory library hours for students. Apart from course books, story books reading can also be promoted. Children must be explained importance of reading. Reading must be made interesting.

Question 4.
You are Ajay Mathur. You happened to see the following lines up a newspaper.
Motorcyclist injured in Road Accident
Free Press News Service
Ujjain
A fast moving jeep on Friday rammed into a motorcyclist rendering him seriously injured.
The accident occurred at Panbihar. According to sources the jeep first rammed into the motorcyclist and then dashed into an electric pole.

Meanwhile, the police have arrested the driver of the jeep and the injured motorcyclist who was admitted to civil hospital.
You decide to write an article in the local daily titled “License to drive is not license to kill”. Write the article in about 150-200 words.
Answer:

License to Drive is Not License to Kill

With the increase in population, the amount of traffic is naturally increasing. Big cities are becoming bigger and more crowded. Life has become very fast. Every body sems to be in a hurry. Drivers use their strength at the accelerator in order to reach their destination as soon as possible.

Due to overspeeding, there has been a great increase in accidents. There are some other reasons also.
For example, people have now become less tolerant. They lack self discipline.

A driver with a bigger vehicle takes it as a challenge if someone with a smaller one overtakes him. Then a race begins between the two, and the natural result is a serious accident.

Due to the fast pace of life, we remain under stress all the time. There is stress due to family issues. There is stress due to work related issues. And then, there is a climatic effect also.

In hot countries like India, people are prone to have a hot temper. And then there is another reason. There are no stringent penalties for those who break the traffic rules.

In the absence of severe penalties, people ignore traffic rules at their will.

The cure of each ill lies in removing the causes. Therefore, we should avoid road rage and be disciplined motorists. We should know traffic rules and be courteous to fellow drivers.
If we have an appointment, we should start well in time. We shouldn’t carry any stress while driving.

D. Speech Writing

Question 1.
You are Vibhor Pandey of class XII. You are asked by your class teacher to prepare a speech using the table and some news clippings released in the ‘Human Development Report (HDR), on the topic – Earth on Fire’.
MP Board Class 12th Special English Short Compositions Important Questions img 2
Answer:
“We human beings are like the experimental frog that is kept in a petridish which is being heated gradually and finally the frog boils itself to death”.

Respected Principal, honourable members of the staff and my fellow school mates, I, Vibhor Pandey of class XII stand here to warn you that we have to take some very strong steps very soon and at a very large scale, if we want to save our dear earth from eminent disaster arising out of global warming.
Friends, the Human Development Report (HDR) has listed India at number four position in the top ten list of countries responsible for CO2 emissions.

Only the US, China and Russia are above us. According to the report India is responsible for 1342 million tons of CO2 emissions annually.

The United Nations Development Programme’s annual report focuses on various aspects of human development like health, gender and poverty every year.
The 2007 report makes a strong case for action on climate change which it calls the “defining human development issue of our generation.”

The UN report says that there is a small window of opportunity in this century for limiting the global temperature increase to 2°C. If this is not done, humanity will face a series of climatic changes that will wreak havoc on the planet.
These will include flooding on coastal areas, crop failures, epidemics, severe water scarcity and increase in natural disasters. According to the report climate change will affect the world’s poor most.

Global warming will initiate draught and flooding which will destroy the sources of livelihood for poor people in Africa, Asia and South America. Not only this, friends, we will make extinct 30% of all the land species. The poorer sections will also be the most prone to health disasters like spread of malaria and diarrhoea.

Dear listeners, I implore you to act now and let all the governments of the world know that we students care for mother earth and we care for our future generations.

Thank you.

Question 2.
You are required to speak on ‘Vegetarianism’ in the school’s morning assembly. Prepare your speech taking help from the following points:

  • Natural way of life
  • Vegans-pure vegetarians
  • Lacto-vegetarians who use dairy products
  • Lacto-ovo-vegetarians who take eggs and dairy products
  • Infinite variety of flavours
  • 30-40 million people turned vegetarian in US
  • Medical bills of vegetarians lower, says UK Survey.

Answer:
“Tell me what you eat and I’ll tell you what you are”. Honourable Principal, Dear teachers and my Dear friends I am here to speak on ‘vegetarianism’. “You are what you eat” is an old saying and it is a fact that it is the food that makes the man. The food we eat, its quality, quantity, its timing and combination is of utmost importance to healthy life.

It is vegetarianism that promotes a natural way of life. But despite our implicit message of universal love and non-violence vegetarianism has not spread, as it should have.

This may be because, as you all know, is an inward looking habit and is best cultivated in the mind. Leading a vegetarian way of life helps the animal kingdom to co-exist with man.

Animals supply milk, manure and energy. This has been central to the Indian culture for thousands of years. A vegetarian lifestyle is natural, multifaceted and helpful in self-preservation in a healthy way.

Dear friends, it has been rightly said that food and health are closely related. In India a vegetarian is usually a lacto-vegetarian.
In the western world vegetarians are sub-divided as “vegans” (pure vegetarians, who do not take any food coming from animal kingdom), lacto-vegetarians (who use dairy products) and Lacto-ovo vegetarians. The last category includes those consuming eggs, in addition to dairy products.

Vegetarian foods provide an infinite variety of flavours whereas, very sorry to say, non-vegetarian foods have hardly any taste of their own. In fact, non-vegetarian foods have to be seasoned with ingredients from the vegetable kingdom to make them palatable.

It is significant to note that in USA nearly 30 to 40 million people have adopted vegetarianism in the last decade not only on ethical and humanitarian grounds but also for ecological reasons.

In UK, surveys have shown that the medical bills of vegetarians are considerably lower than those of the non-vegetarians. Even in our country a group of Mumbai doctors, after extensive studies, have confirmed that vegetarianism offers protection from coronaiy and gastro-intestinal diseases. Vegetarians tend to have lower blood pressure.

I congratulate those who are vegetarians for having chosen the right path. The remaining I call would be vegetarians, for I believe they will soon adopt the right path.

Thank you.

Question 3.
You are Rajneesh Singh, captain of your school there is in a celebration of “Van Mahotsav” – You have to speak. Prepare notes for speech with the help of the following points:

  1. Addressing to quest and pupil.
  2. What is Van Mahotsav.
  3. Plantation is our duty.
  4. How to protect planted by Civilians and Government authority. (M.P. 2015)

Answer:
Speech

Good morning, Respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends today on the occasion of celebration of Van Mahotsav I would like to mention that:

The best things in life are “Tree”. Oxygen, air and water and all the other necessities for sustaining life on Earth is available to us free of cost by these trees.

It is plants that provide us with so much we do not even realize. Plants produce oxygen and it is the starting point of all food chains. Plants are the reason life on Earth is possible.

Even then plants are subjected to cruelty by humans. Millions of trees are cut each year. But this does not stop plants from being kind to us.

When a tree is stoned for its fruit it does get hurt but at the end it does part with its fruit. Nature is our mother, so why are we killing mother.

If we do so we are committing a heinous sin by strangling it even further. Today is the day we respect mother nature for all that she has given us and plant trees and show our indebtedness to nature.

Van Mahotsav, a week long festival of tree planting is organised every year in the month of July, across India when millions of trees are planted.

As the monsoon progresses across the Gangetic plains, Van Mahotsav is celebrated in some parts in early July, in others, in August, and still further west, even in September.

The main purpose for planting the trees during Van Mahotsav was to : Increase awareness about trees and love of trees amongst the people.

Report: ‘Road Safety Movement’

Greetings, earlier today, I had the pleasure of attending a seminar on, ‘Road Safety Movement’, organized by the Rotary club of our district. It was a pretty jarring experience. The horrific videos of accident scenes have had a particularly stunning effect on me. I’ve never actually cared about road safety, before seeing just how bad being careless while driving can be. I’m sure I can speak for all of us when I say driving carefully is something we must all strive for, so that we don’t ruin any lives-whether they be our own family, or even a stranger.

Even just preventing having to spend money on car repairs on other such problems can be immensely helpful for everyone. Have a great day! Stay safe.

The Editor,
M.P. Chronical,

Sir,

Our Municipality wants a wake-up call; and, as private appeals to their office have had no effect, perhaps a little publicity will do no harm.

For the last month the busiest road in our city has been almost impossible. The surface is badly broken up by the heavy rains. Moreover, there are heaps of roadmetal on both sides of the road.

It is scandalous that we should be inconvenienced in this way for weeks, and I hope that the public will bring pressure to bear on those responsible so that the road may be put in through repair without further delay.

Yours sincerely,
Arti/Manish.

Dear John,

I am very pleased to receive your loving and informative letter after a month. Gladly I am giving the information regarding the cycle of seasons in our part of the country as per your desire.

Our country has tropical climate. So the summer is longer than the winter. January is the month of severe winter. Though cold, we work hard in order to preserve our body heat. The spring season starts in the month of February. This is the time of flowers and new leaves. The birds chirp and the nature is at full swing.

From April to June the rainless summer scorches our body with excess heat. The rainy season sets in during July, and it continues upto September. During this season the crops are Sown. The October month is neither hot nor cold. It is a season of hiking, tours and games. Winter starts from November and there are cold winds and we have to rub our hands to avoid cold. We protect ourselves with woollen clothes.

If you need any other information, please do ask me. Pay my respects to your parents and love to Mary.
Yours sincerely,
Raj Mishra.

To,
The Superintendent of Police,
Sehore.
Subject: Nuisance of loudspeakers.

Dear Sir,
I beg to bring to your kind notice the annoyance and inconvenience caused to several people, mainly students in this locality by the unrestricted way in which loudspeakers are allowed to be used both during night and day by some people.
For instance, only yesterday we had to tolerate loudspeakers all the twenty four hours of the day in our locality. Although my house is one kilometre away from the place where the loudspeaker was being actually played yet I could not sleep whole night.
I really wonder how people residing nearby were able to put up with the noise. And, how students could have been able to study.

I, therefore, suggest, there should be a restriction of hours as well as volume at which the loudspeakers can be played, so that should not become a source of irritation toothers.
Hope my suggestions would be come to you.

Thanking you.
Yours faithfully,
S. L. Shrivastava.

You may be aware that no white-washing has been done in the flat for the past three years.

You will appreciate that it is in your interest that the flat owned by you is maintained in a proper condition. If the necessary repairs are not done urgently, it is likely that more damage will be caused and it may require more expenditure to repair the damage.

I would request you to pay a visit to the flat or send someone to make inspection of the urgent requirements regarding maintenance of the flat. I am sure, you will not neglect the matter any further and will do the needful done at your earliest convenience.

With thanks
