Terrorism is one of the major threats that is faced by our country. We live under constant fear of violence and death. Common man feels no longer safe. At every nook and corner, lurks the threat of an imminent terrorist attack. It is the giant threat that the world is confronted with. Activities of terrorists have created a horrendous grief in the heart of the common masses.

Some of the factors that have given rise to the terrorism are lack of education, employment, poor economy and religious difference. But it is high time that we join hands to fight and combat terrorism. India has always boasted of its unity in diversity. Keeping in this view, we need to spread the message of peace and harmony across the nation.

Strengthening the intelligence network, proper policy formation and effective implementation of prevention of Terrorism Act ( POTA ) are some of the steps that can be taken up to reduce terrorist attacks. It is also necessary to educate the masses and make them aware of safety measures. It is the need of the hour to keep a constant vigil on the safety of our very own nation.

Q.12 India is a tourist’s paradise. But we have not really exploited our tourism possibilities. Write a article in 125-150 words on “Tourism in India”. You are Ravi/Rani.

ANS. India is known for its rich flora and fauna, beautiful landscapes, glorious past and varied cultural trends. All these make India a major attraction for tourists from all over the world. Tourists from far-away places visit our motherland and are influenced by its scintillating beauty. However, tourism in India has been constantly suffering setbacks due to the various factors.

Pot-holed and filthy roads, rickety buses, over charged taxis and delayed trains make travelling a nightmare in India. Moreover, the absence of decent and hygienic accommodations at a reasonable cost adds to the distress of tourists visiting India. Besides, the growing menace of terrorism is a huge deterrent and hindrance for tourists.

The government of India needs to put concerted efforts to revamp and rejuvenate tourism in the country. Utmost emphasis should be placed on infrastructure development and increasing the security. Such effects will certainly make India leader in the world of tourism.

Q.17 You are Rajendra Kumar, a social worker, you read an article in The Hindu on ‘Health care for Indian Workers’. Write a speech in 125-150 words on the importance of health care to be delivered at a public function to create awareness among the workers.

ANS.                      Health Care for Indian Workers

Good morning to all. Recently, I had read an article in the local newspaper “The Hindu” and wondered why we don’t care for the health of the workers around us, we remain mute spectators to their misery trials and tribulations of life.

Often, the workers are found working inhuman conditions, neglecting their health. They are exploited are illiterate and lack awareness of a hygienic way of life. The authorities must ensure clean and healthy working conditions for these people. It is the responsibility of the government to provide affordable healthcare services to workers and their families. Indian workers should be taught the importance of cleanliness and hygiene. Many non-governmental organizations can play a role in spreading awareness about health and hygiene.

Workers play a major role in our life. We must understand and appreciate their contribution towards society. Access to basic health facilities is their innate right . As responsible citizens, we should get together to make their lives healthy. However, we should not forgot that it is the sweat and blood of these workers which has provided us with enormous comfort while we sit in our well-furnished homes.

Q.18 Media has a strong hold on society. Write a speech in 125-150 words on how media influences public opinion to be delivered in the school assembly.

ANS.                                                     Impact of Media

Good morning everybody. Today, I am here to voice my concerns how media influences public opinion. Media act as a powerful weapon in democracy. It keeps people abreast with the recent changes and development in the society and the world. They also help people understand the various developments and build their opinion about the same. With the development of better modes of communications, the influence of media has increased. Consequently, its responsibility of delivering correct information has also increased. If people blindly believe the biased news which the print and electronic media tell us, our democracy may suffer a piece of information. It should work towards helping the common man understand the pros and cons of any issue of event.

Thus, one can clearly say that is the responsibility of Media and the Media personnel to ensure that they direct their efforts towards building a constructive and balanced society as well as nation.

Thank you


Q.19 You are Sampreet, an educationist. You have noticed that the youth of today are often unable to cope with stress and become frustrated and bitter. Write a speech in 125-150 words to be delivered at a college function on ‘youth, their problems and solutions’.

ANS.                      Youth, Their Problems and Solutions

Good Morning ! I am Sampreet and, as an educationist it is my duty to throw light, on the disturbing trend of the youth becoming more and more  frustrated in dealing with stress.

Aspirations are now high and with this the level of competition and peer pressure among the youth has been increasing with each passing day. The youth is either not yet mature or trained enough to handle so much stress and therefore they ultimately get frustrated easily to suicide, road rage, hatred crimes, drug abuse, looting, rapes etc. At the slightest provocation, they hold out protests and demonstrations. The minimum desired level of tolerance is missing in them. They don’t see any harm violating the norms and fundamental rules.

The solution is a doddle one. The youth of today needs our unstinted support; it needs to believe to know that, irrespective of the situation they are in; they are always loved by their parents, teachers and elders. They need to develop confidence in their capabilities. We need to remove the unnecessary pressure that our education system exerts on the young minds; it needs to be eased and, CCE is a positive step in this direction. Counselors can help the young generation understand and solve their problems. More job opportunities have to be created; better recruitment processes need to be developed; and professional courses that equip them with necessary skills have to be designed.

The most important thing is to impart value based education so that they have high self-esteem, tolerance and patience and more importantly the zeal to create a clean and civilized society and to be good citizens.

Q.20 After independence India has seen a steep upward trend in the graph of corruption. The public has often become disgusted and disappointed. As Venkat, a well known journalist, write a speech in 150-200 words on ‘Corruption, its causes and solutions’.

ANS.                     Corruption, its causes and Solutions

Good morning, friends! I am Venkat. As a journalist and responsible citizen of India, it is my duty to shed light and apprise you, how corruption exists in almost every nook and corner of our country.

Corruption can be understood as misappropriation of government or public property or money. It is an unlawful and immoral act. Corruption has had a gradual growth in our country. How and why did corruption become so common in our country? India’s colonial past has contributed flourishing corrupt practices. It is said that corruption can’t survive long in this world. Although with the increase in scientific technology and advancement of the nation, corruption still remains unbeatable. Also, it is not difficult to visualize. The corrupter also has a relation with scarcity and corruption exists especially because of the vested interests and greed of the people in power.

It is the spasmodic snare of corruption which springs from all prodigality and dissipation. Whatever the reason may be, corruption is an ill practice  that is seen as the major hindrance in the process of economic growth and modernization of the nation. The need for an anti-corruption bill like Jan Lokpal has long been discerned now. But, in a Democracy like India, the power of the common man should not be underestimated. Constant vigil and intervention by the civil society is also required to bring positive changes in the country. Punishment must be increased and illegally confiscated wealth must be recovered. As aware citizens and of course as a united whole, we must overcome our fears and work towards bringing about a corruption free society.
