Sample 3 The Central Park in My Colony
The park of our colony is in the centre and the cluster of buildings of different blocks, form a border around the park. It is round in shape and is quite big, as it caters to about 70-80 families living in the vicinity. The park is very well-maintained. It is colourful with lots of varieties of flowers of many hues and shapes. There are some evergreen shrubs, hedges, and trees. The park has a fountain, which is only functional in the evening. There is a lotus pond on one side and a stone statue of Buddha, under a tree. One side of the park is exclusively reserved for children as there are 10-15 swings. Both the old and the young make a beeline for the park in the evenings. Old people are seen laughing, chatting on the benches, while the young and the agile are either jogging or walking. The park presents a very vivid and vibrant picture at such times. The residents of the colony make all efforts to keep the park secure and clean. Two gardeners are employed and with their contribution no stray dogs or eatables are allowed inside the park. The park presents a very encouraging picture of the Clean Delhi’ campaign.
Sample 4 A Parachute
A parachute is an umbrella shaped bag, usually made of nylon, that slows the fall of a person or object through the air, or slows a landing aeroplane. Parachutes resist the movement of the air past them and acts as a brake. This helps to make their landing a soft one. Parachutes are also used for dropping supplies into areas far from roads or rivers and for sport. Military parachutes drop soldiers and vehicles in enemy countries. Huge parachutes slow the space shuttle as it lands. Sport parachutes may be small and arched and may be controlled like hang-gliders. Strangely, they sometimes have holes in them. This makes them stable and stops them from swinging.
Sample 5 The Indian Beggar
The Indian beggar is very persistent. Wherever you go he is sure to follow you. There is no escape from him. He does not leave us in peace even in our homes.
Broadly speaking there are two types of beggars. First, there are those who are strong and able bodied and can work. But they do not do so because they find it easier to live on the charity of others. There are those who are old and weak, blind and lame. Such beggars should be given help.
However, an Indian beggar in an object of pity. He has no means of earning a livelihood. His body is covered with dirt and ashes. His hair is long and dirty. He never washes his face and hands because he thinks that the dirtier he looks the more the people will pity him. He generally carries in his hands a long stick to drive away the barking dogs that often fly at him. Indian beggar is indeed a very miserable creature. In winter he has nothing to protect himself against the biting cold. In summer he suffers from scorching heat. He sleeps where he can and sleeps very often on the pavement.
Some beggars are really lazy and wicked. They commit theft at night. They should be punished. Alms giving is a great virtue. But we should give alms only to those that are really poor, holy and helpless.
