    Write an essay on the topic ‘What is bliss?’

    Marks:10
    Answer:

    ‘What is bliss?’


    Bliss is perfect happiness. A blissful moment is one which brings tears of ecstasy or gives goosebumps. Blissful moments are rare and this is what makes them so special. If we reflect, we can recount some of the blissful moments that we have witnessed or experienced.

    A mother feels blessed when she gives birth to a child. She has to undergo labour pains but when her child is finally born, the relief and ecstasy is palpable on her face. Patriotism also makes one experience bliss. When our national team wins a global tournament, we feel proud of our roots.

    Life’s experiences teach us that we should go for bliss and not fun. However, it seems that a majority of people, especially city-dwellers, are oblivious of the idea of bliss. They seek happiness in watching films in multiplexes and dining in expensive restaurants. Reading, spending quality time with one’s family, watching the sun rise or set, eating the delicacies prepared by mother, spending time with children or old people can all offer bliss. Bliss makes us realise that life’s pleasures lie in simple things. One does not need to be wealthy to enjoy these pleasures. Our world becomes idyllic when we start chasing bliss.

    Write an essay on the topic ‘Blood is thicker than water.’

    Marks:10
    Answer:

    ‘Blood is thicker than water’

    Blood is thicker than water. This proverb suggests that our family members or relatives are any day dearer to us than our friends or acquaintances. Blood ties are no doubt stronger than friendship. A friendship between two buddies may break up and end forever. This, however, rarely happens in the case of family.

    Two brothers may not see eye to eye at all. They may even become bloodthirsty. Still, there will always be a chance of a rapprochement. Similarly, a father and son may share a very sullen relationship but they will nevertheless have a soft corner for each other. The strength of a blood relationship is best manifested in the relation between a mother and her child. A mother will never cease to love her child no matter what kind of person the latter is.

    As we grow up, we make new friends. Many a times, our comradeship with a certain friend comes to a grinding halt because of a communication gap. When we meet again, we find that our relation is not the same anymore. Many of the friends that we make in life are in fact companions. They aren’t with us forever. This, however, seldom happens where blood relations are involved.

    Write an essay on the topic "Children are like wet cement. Whatever falls on them makes an impression."

    Marks:10
    Answer:

    "Children are like wet cement. Whatever falls on them makes an impression."

    Children are perhaps the most gullible of all creatures. They are so impressionable that they can be molded whichever way their parents want. Infants emulate what they see and observe. Their behavior reflects the culture that their parents give them.

    The fruit does not fall far from the tree. This adage suggests that a child won’t be much different from his parents. For instance, if a child’s parents are optimistic, the child too will inadvertently have a positive approach towards life. If parents want, the susceptible nature of their children can work to their advantage.

    A child’s mental conditioning happens by what he learns and experiences during his formative years. Therefore, it becomes important for parents to teach the right values to their children. Parents who inculcate values like discipline, hard work, dedication, etc. in their children see the latter do well academically. Similarly, parents can prevent their children from becoming couch potatoes by encouraging them to participate in some other activities like learning music or playing outdoor games. A child will always be hungry for knowledge if he develops the habit of reading at an early age.

    Parents, therefore, must spend maximum time with their children if they wish to see them become good human beings.

    Write a reflective essay on the topic ‘What money can’t buy?’

    Marks:10
    Answer:

    ‘What money can’t buy?’

    Money is perhaps the most desirable commodity on earth. The whole world is running after money. Money definitely makes things happen. Lack of financial stability can cause many problems. However, it will be foolish to think that money can cure all ills. If this was true, the world and mankind would not be grappling with so many problems today.

    First and foremost, money cannot buy satisfaction which only comes from hard work. No matter how much money you have, you still have to slog like any other human being to achieve your goal. Money can’t buy knowledge. When you have money, you can buy books. But the wealth of knowledge hidden in the books can be acquired only when one makes a conscious effort to read.

    Money is not the guarantor of good health either. Money can help you buy whatever you want to eat. However, one needs to exercise and eat right to stay fit. This requires resolve and discipline which cannot be obtained through money.

    Lastly, the cliché that money can’t buy love is a given. No amount of money can make up for the love that a mother gives to her children. Money is not the be all and end all of life. One should look beyond money.
