India has broadly five seasons - Summer, Rains, Autumn, Winter and Spring. Each one has its own beauty and advantages. Summer brings relief to the people through vacations. They can visit places. The chilly winter is over. People can bathe and swim, sleep in the open air, travel without heavy bedding and go to hill stations. The rainy season, with its sparkling rain-drops, quenches the thirst of the earth and its people. There is greenery all round. Autumn, with its mild weather, clean atmosphere and festivals of Pooja and Dussera, is people's favourite. The Winter season, when people sit at home, lazily warming themselves, can be very good. People can get dressed in colourful clothes. They can participate in winter sports and games. A man feels very active. After these seasons comes the king of the seasons — Spring. It is my favourite season. March and April are the loveliest more...

We have a big garden around our house. There is a lawn in front with rectangular and oval shaped flower beds alongside. At the back are fruits trees and vegetable plants. My mother loves the garden and works in it. Most of the vegetables we eat are from our own garden. At the far end of the garden are two pits for compost manure. A gardener comes weekly to do the heavy work. Many birds nest on the trees. A swing hangs from the branch of the mango tree where I play with my brother. I like our garden very much.

The first shower brings a smile to all faces. The much awaited monsoon season begins by mid-June and goes on till October. Often the arrival of monsoon is signaled by dark clouds, at times accompanied by thunder and lightening. Rains bring happiness all over. Children are the one who enjoy the most. They play in the water; make paper boats and go for walk with their raincoats on. When it pours heavily the schools are generally shut for a day or two. Besides children, even farmers are happy during this season. They can plough the fields and sow seeds. They can expect a good harvest. The land looks clean and lush green. The birds and animals are happy and gay. The fresh fragrance of wet mud fills the air. We all enjoy the monsoon.

My earliest memory of my mother is when my brother died. She was heart broken. I overheard people say that she would succumb to her grief. However, she had us, me and my sister, and she had to move on. Despite the lump in her throat and the stone on her chest she went on cooking, cleaning and working. It took her a really long time to get her smile back but it never was quite the same. That was the first thing I learnt from my mother. No matter what life dishes out to you, don't stop living, eventually things will get better. Twice a month on Sundays, Mom would volunteer at the Home for the Aged. She would bathe the old people, change their diapers, feed them and sit for hours talking to them. She took me with her. She always made sure to bake a sponge cake more...

She is working as a part-time computer operator in a private company. When we return from school in the evening she welcomes us with a cheerful smile. more...

Outline: Initial breakage of the syndrome and their full forms. Multiplication of virus in human body and its ill effects. How is HIV transmitted? Treatments to control HIV. In the year 1981, a unique and newly recognized syndrome known as Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) broke out in America. HIV which stands for Human Immune Deficiency Virus causes AIDS. HIV infects human cells and uses the energy and nutrients provided by the eel Is to grow and reproduce. The body's immune system breaks down in this disease. The body is unable to fight against infections and other sicknesses due to damaged immune system. When a person is infected with HIV, the virus enters the body and multiplies largely in the white blood cells. These cells normally protect and help us in resisting various diseases. As the virus grows, it damages or kills these cells. This weakens the immune system and more...

Early man was a food gatherer, depending on nature for all his needs. He gradually moved on to being a food grower with the discovery of agriculture, and settled down in one place, learning to live in a group. This was the beginning of civilization as we know it today. Early knowledge of agriculture was an accumulation of experiences that were passed on from father to son. Some of these have been preserved as religious commandments and some in the ancient inscriptions. There is evidence to show that as early as 2000 BC the Egyptian civilization followed particular dates for sowing and reaping. Some Greek and Roman classics give instructions on how to get a higher yield. The development of agriculture made it apparent that more food could be extracted from a given area of land by encouraging useful and hardy plant and animal species, and discouraging others. At the more...

Among the familiar persons that visit any given locality, on a regular basis is the postman. He wears a khaki uniform with a cap of the same colour and is seen trudging along carrying a bag full of letters and parcels. With a pack of letters in his hand, he is seen moving around from door to door. He is a very simple, unassuming and a humble person but all the same he is a very important member of our society. Very few people realise the significance of his role. He brings news from our relatives and friends. Even though we are well into the e-mail era, yet with the vast majority of the population still ignorant of it, the postman holds his importance very firmly in society. He is still and will be for a long time to come a vital link between us and all our near and more...

My desire is to become a film-director, Different people have different aims. Mostly young people want to take up the safe and common careers like Engineering, Medicine, Civil or Military Services, legal practice or some family business. I do not like these dull professions. They may satisfy others. I want something more exciting and challenging. I have always been attracted by the film world. Right from the first day of my seeing a film I was in love with this world. I have seen many films - some good and some bad. The good films gave me great pleasure and thrill. I have seen social films, religious films, historical films, adventure films, children's films, comedies, tragedies — all. However, my favourite films are historical, adventurous and children's films. My desire to become a film-director has become very strong because I find that most directors make very poor pictures. Their pictures more...

My mother works very hard. She wakes up early to get breakfast and tiffin boxes ready for Dad and me. Now that I am seven years old, I help her on Saturdays and Sundays. She allows me to wash and cut some vegetables and lets me boil water to make her a cup of tea. I also hang the washing on the line and then fold the dry clothes. Often I go to the shop nearby to buy something she needs. I love helping my mother. She is happy and I hear her talking about me to the neighbors. She gives me a tight hug.
