Subject: Colossal wastage of food in lavish Indian weddings.
We all talk of changing our country for betterment but how little do we do in this regard. Out of so many things that go unnoticed in our dear country, here is one issue that I wish to chalk out. it is strange how Indians spend life’s savings at their weddings.
The wedding market in India is flourishing, with approximately I.50, 000 crores per year. The shocking pan is that all this wastage is happening when our own country. India. is a host of the biggest armies of starving people in the world. Such wastage should be censured and people should be educated against wastage of food in such a manner. In social functions and gatherings, guests should not squander food by piling up their plates excessively. The size of the servings should be limited according to the appetite. Besides, the hosts should also responded by giving the caterers the exact number of guests to arrive so that the food is cooked accordingly and there is no wastage.
I cannot help but point out as to how people do not even bother to use ‘R.S.V.P.’. Which means “please respond”, a French phrase, to confirm their visit on being invited? Thus, the host, not sure of the number of guests to arrive, prepares food in abundance leading to inevitable wastage. Indian marriages are not just famous for their traditions and customs but also because of their grand fiestas. I hope that the new generation understands the gravity of the situation and abandons old fashions and deals with such issues practically.

Ans. Youth and National Integration
India is a country where diversity plays a vital role. The Indian population comprises of many different races, religions, cultures and languages. Fostering national unity among everyone is the most difficult task in India today. Citizens of our country seem to have forgotten that unity is a strength. Thus, national integration is the need of the hour. People should be educated on this topic. And what better audience than the youth.
Through schools! Lid colleges, the young men and women should be taught that India is one and the differences are only superficial. For this, the textbooks should be suitably revised. Moreover, exchange programmes should be taken up to give the youth the chance to meet grows acquaintanceship with other and their cultures. This will make the youth understand how even diversity brings us close.
Such programmes should emphasize the oneness of the people. Rather than the differences. For this, media can also be a good medium to effectively educate the youth and develop the national consciousness.
Q.4. A Spaceship on Earth!
Last Sunday, I was watching TV. Suddenly I heard people shouting outside. It was about 10:30 p.m. As I opened my door, bright lights from outside dazzled my eyes. I went outside towards the place where a large crowd had gathered outside our colony park. There was a huge spaceship that had landed in the park. It had a thousand lights blinking and from the windows, one could see a few strange figures peeping out. I was surprised to see the aliens. Meanwhile, the police had also reached the park. People were shouting and asking the police to take the aliens out of the ship. They were very excited to see them. By this time, few scientists and researchers had also reached the spot. They had brought some instruments along with them.
As they started moving towards the spaceship, the sirens that were installed in it started blowing. We could notice the strange figures hurriedly moving inside the spaceship. Then, as if understanding the intentions of the scientists that they probably wanted to capture them, they started blowing green-coloured dust from their spaceship. Its wheels started moving like a blower and the spaceship started moving upwards. The scientists rushed out of the park. People tried to click pictures of the spaceship but their cameras showed only a black screen. The spaceship safely moved out of the hands of the humans who would have otherwise captured the aliens and started a study on them. I thanked God for saving their lives from the clutches of the inhuman humans.

Anne Frank was a young Jewish girl. She lived with her parents in Germany. But Hitler’s Nazi party was against the Jews. The Nazis were killing the Jews or forcing them to work in the concentration camps. The Frank family fled from Germany in 1933 and took shelters in the Netherlands. But in 1940, Germany attacked the Netherlands and captured it. Now the Nazis started arresting the Jews and sending them to the concentration camps. The Frank family went into hiding. They lived secretly in the upper floors of their business premises. They hid there for 25 months. Their non-Jewish friends gave them food.
Anne had started writing her diary before going into hiding. In August 1944, the Germans came to know of their hiding. They were arrested and sent to Germany. Anne, her sister, Margot and her mother soon died in a concentration camp. Her father survived and published part of Anne’s diary. In this diary, Anne gives a moving and tragic account of the difficulties faced by her family and the other Jews.
The part of the diary reproduced in this chapter is about the days when Anne was a schoolgirl and she and her family had not yet moved to the secret quarters.
11. It depends on the subject matter what style a poet chooses to adopt while writing a poem. The poem describes wild animals and how to distinguish them. To avoid oversimplification and monotony, the poet uses ‘humour’ as an effective weapon. The ‘humour’ used in the poem is suggestive and mild. It is not biting or scathing in effect. If the Asian Lion “roars at you as you’re dying”. The Bengal Tiger is a ‘noble’ wild beast that “greets you” when you are roaming round in the jungle. The unsparing Leopard will show no mercy and it will “do no good to roar with pain.” If you have any doubts, the bear will “give you just one more caress.” The poet uses subtle humour when he says: “Hyenas come with merry smiles; But if they weep they’re Crocodiles”.

- All through the night, Lencho thought only of his one hope: the help of God, whose eyes, as he had been instructed, see everything, even what is deep in one’s conscience.
- “God”, he wrote, “if you don’t help me, my family and I will go hungry this year”.
- He wrote ‘To God’ on the envelope, put the letter inside and still troubled, went to town.
- God could not have made a mistake, nor could he have denied Lencho what he had requested
