I happened to see a very horrible accident. It occurred last month. It was between a truck and a motor cycle. The road was slippery due to rain. A truck was going on the road.

He applied brakes. But the motor cycle slipped. The rider and the other student fell off It. They had head injuries. Both of them died on the spot. I can’t forget this accident.
5. The Night Before The Examination
Examinations are always fearful. They are a great cause of fear, anxiety, tension and worry. The night before the examination is really painful. The students have no sleep. They stop eating food. They want to read and revise everything. They are disturbed if someone tells them about an important question. They at once study its answer. They are irritated if anyone disturbs them. They pass the whole night in tension. They do not take anything in the morning. They go to the examination hall on empty stomachs.

Holi is a festival of fun and colours. It came at the end of the winter season. Last time also our colony celebrated it as usual. On the Holi day young boys of the colony gathered at a particular spot. They coloured one another’s face and of the passers-by. They also threw water balloons. They went to the nearby colony to put colours on its residents. Soon the women collected. They started throwing coloured water on one another. They offered sweets also.

7. Morning Assembly In My School
Morning Assembly is a very important ritual. It is also a part of the age-old culture of our country. Every new work starts with prayers to our gods. So it happens in a school too. Schools are like our temples. Students and teachers stand in rows. They say prayers before starting the day’s work. The scene is very calm and peaceful. All students stand in rows in school uniform. In many schools, some physical training is also given in the morning assembly. Important information is also given to the students by the Principal.
8. The Scene At A Railway Platform
The scene at a Railway Platform is always enjoyable. It presents a picture of mini India. Last Sunday I went to the city Railway station to see my uncle off. The platform was overcrowded. Passengers of all states like Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Assam etc, could be seen. There were many stalls on the platform. Small children were running here and there. Coolies in red dress were going to and fro. Passengers were taking tea. Some were reading newspapers. They were waiting for the train. Soon the train came. My uncle got a seat and the train started. I returned home
9. My Visit To A Historical Place
A visit to a historical place is always educative. Last year I went to Agra. Agra is a historical place. It has many buildings of historical interest The most famous is Taj Mahal. I have no words to express its beauty. The white marble looks like silver. Its reflection in the water is simply enchanting. The four minarets add to its glory. The grassy lawns increase it. It looks like a dream in the moon-lit night. I can’t forget my visit to Taj Mahal.
10. One Day Cricket Match
One Day Cricket Matches have become the favourites of cricket lovers. They stop work to enjoy the match. So these one-dayers have become more popular than the test matches. One day match is a one-day game. Time and overs are fixed. Each team plays a maximum of fifty overs. So there is suspense and romance in this match. It seldom ends in a draw. It gives results. So the players try to win the match. They put in their best. Every ball played is filled with great fun and suspense.
11. Bad Effects Of Watching Television
Television has become an essential part of every house. It is the cheapest source of entertainment. Children find it very interesting. But it has bad effects also. Seeing it for long hours harms the eyes. The students are left with less time to study. So their studies suffer. Many programmes influence young minds in a wrong way. Foreign programmes are not in good taste. The youth are easily attracted towards them. They forget their own age-old culture. Their lives are spoiled. So television should be watched under the guidance of the elders.
