All of us have been to a circus and watched with amazement as animals performed their tricks. We have never, however, paused to consider how an elephant can balance on a ball or how the bear jumps through rings of fire or how the tigers ride bicycles. If we knew the horrendous truth behind these carefully orchestrated acts we wouldn't stand in queues to buy tickets to watch these animals perform. Animals are forcefully taught to perform these physically difficult tricks by whip-wielding trainers who use not just whips but tight collars, muzzles, electric rods, and bull hooks too. Animals in circuses are trained with abuse and intimidation and they are kept in extreme confinement. These animals were not meant to entertain us, they were meant to roam wild and free. Many countries have banned the use of animals in their circuses. In poor countries banning the use of these more...

Points: Has a long and busy day - rises early and goes on morning visits - attends his clinic - his attitude to the rich and poor patients - how he spends his afternoons - his duties in the evening - cannot be sure of a night's undisturbed sleep. A doctor has a long day. He has a very busy day everyday. He rises very early. Before going to his clinic at 10 o'clock, he finishes visiting all his patients at their homes. He cheers them up with a kind word and a ready smile. He listens patiently to all their complaints. He has a perfect bedside manner. He enters his clinic. He greets his patients with a smile. He has many patients waiting for him. He examines each patient. Some patients are prescribed a mixture or tablets. Others have to take injections. The mixture prescribed by the doctor is more...

Outline: Comparison of female alcoholic to male and societies’ acceptance. Charactristics, research reports and diseases caused among women. Recommendations and steps for reducing alcohol consumption. Drinking, especially heavy drinking, is less accepted for women than men. Intoxicated women are more dishonoured because of the total non- acceptance of the societies. Women drinkers are said to be secretive drinkers. Compared to male alcoholics women appear to take up drinking at a later age. The shift from controlled to uncontrolled drinking is more rapidly among women than men. The female alcoholics take on some of the adaptive characteristics of the father including the use of alcohol for escape and relief from tension. It is estimated that around 8% of female alcoholics had alcoholic mothers. Some researchers have reported that female alcoholics drink out of a sense of inadequacy and insecurity developed in early life. Generally, it is believed that female alcoholics tend more...

The Romans had a proverb, 'mens sana in corpore sano,' meaning 'A healthy mind in a healthy body'. Research shows that the Romans were really on to something. While it is known for a long time that exercise can protect general health and wellbeing, it now seems that exercise may help to preserve brain health also. For example, fitness levels have been associated with maintenance of brain function in age while physical activity has been linked with a reduced risk of development of Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Exercise is emerging as a possible means to maintain or improve brain health throughout life. However, many things that happen in life can disrupt emotional health and lead to a strong feeling of sadness, stress or anxiety. "Good" changes can be just as stressful as "bad" changes. The body responds to the emotions i.e. the way people think, feel and act. This is more...

Libraries are important means of disseminating knowledge. “A good collection of books” says Carlyle, “is the true university of our days”. The formal education received in schools and colleges is not of much value, unless it is supplemented by as wide a reading as possible. So many good books are published now a days that it is impossible to buy and possess each and every number of them. Lovers of books have no alternative but to depend on a good library. There is a good public library in my town of which I am a member. I have cultivated the habit of spending at least an hour in that library every evening. To the countless hours I have spent there I owe the broadening of my mental horizon, my general knowledge, which often elicits warm compliments from my teachers, and the wealth and variety of ideas which help me in more...

When I think of the many festivals that India has I feel myself lucky to be born here. Almost every season has its own festival. In January we have the Pongal, Lohri and the 26th January. In March we have 'Holt followed by Easter and Baisakhi in April. May brings us Idd. August comes with 15th August, Raksha Bandhan and Janmasthmi. In October we have Dussera and Durga Pooja. Then comes Deepawali; and finally comes Christmas on 25th December. Which country can boast of so many festivals in a year? Of all these, my favourite is the Durga Pooja, the festival dedciated to goddess Durga. It comes at, the time of Dussera when the weather is New Pattern Essays pleasant. The summer heat is over. The rigours of winter are yet to come. The Pooja is a festival of five days, from Shasthi to Dashami. it celebrates the killing of more...

Neeta is my best friend. We are in the same class. She lives in a flat on the fourth floor of our building. Neeta and I do our homework together. Her grandmother stays with her. She enjoys telling us stories. On holidays grandma teaches us embroidery and cross stitch. We will soon be able to embroider pretty articles. When my parents go out in the evening, I stay with Neeta. I am very excited because Neeta will be joining us when we go for a ten day holiday to Shimla. Oh, what fun we will have together.

Jane has a bright red bicycle. It looks like any normal bicycle with two wheels; however it can fly in the sky. Jane received it as a gift from her fairy god- mother. You need not push the pedal as there is a magical switch that takes it up in the sky. The ride through the clouds can be quite bumpy. Jane takes her little brother for a ride. They enjoy seeing the tall buildings and the church tower form top.  Jane could actually touch the town hall clock. It was quite windy. On normal days Jane is also able to pedal her magical cycle to school. When tired she just pushes the button and lo! It flies. While coming back to the ground you have to be careful or else the cycle may hit with a thump. Jane keeps her cycle shining clean.     

When my grandma died, I was blessed to be there to hold her hand. It was in that instance that I knew what I wanted to do when I grew up. I wanted to be a nurse. I wanted to help make people feel better. Nursing is a noble profession. It calls for putting your patient’s needs before your own. It calls for understanding human emotions and feeling compassion for another in pain. It may appear as a thankless job especially since the hours are long and the credit always goes to the doctor but what can be more rewarding than putting a troubled mind to rest, or giving a body in pain relief? I don't want to be just a nurse. I want to be a nurse that gives hospice care. Hospice care deals with those that are terminally ill and wish to spend the rest of their days more...
