A Street Hawker

Or, The life of a Street Hawker
A street hawker is a common sight in the streets of big cities and towns. A hawker sells his goods with interesting cries in order to draw the attention of his customers. He knows the art of convincing. Women and children are usually attracted by his calls. He generally offers toys, fruits, biscuits, vegetables, ice-cream. cakes, laces, clothes, utensils etc. On the contrary, there is another kind of hawkers who buy newspapers, blank pots, old books, worn-out clothes from the houses. However, children are like a hawker but men do not like him. By carrying the goods for sale in his hands or over his shoulders, he moves from door to door. Sometimes he goes from one street to another with his moving shop and he often causes problems on the footpath. A street hawker’s income is not sufficient, so he has to maintain his family through hardship.

A street hawker is a very familiar figure in towns. He is usually seen selling different kinds of things on the street. He earns his livelihood by hawking his commodities from street to street. He sells toys, ribbons, cloths, fruits, sweets, vegetables, fancy goods and daily necessaries. He carries them on the head, sometimes in hand, sometimes in a small basket or on shoulder or in a hand-cart. He is a very clever man who knows how to deceive customers. He is very selective about what things to sell, to children, to women and to men. He usually sells things for children that attract them. He targets children as well as their mothers for his sale. He usually hawks a heavy price but finally sells at a cheap rate. A street hawker comes out to sell things from morning until evening. He makes a peculiar shout while passing the street drawing the attention of the customers. However, a street hawker has to lead a very toiling life.

It is found at every nook and corner of a village as well as of a town or a city. It is, in fact, a place for gossip, rest and recreation. It is frequented by the weary passers-by, the tired office assistants, the fatigued labourers, the exhausted rickshaw-pullers, as well as the students and political workers. They go on gossiping in groups on any kind of subjects. It is, in fact, a pleasure resort for people of all age groups and of all walks of life. The quality and standard of tea-stalls vary from place to place according to the status of the locality where they are run.

A Winter Morning

A winter morning is misty and cold. There is dense fog everywhere. Sometimes the fog is so dense that the sun-rays cannot get through it. Everything looks hazy. Things at distance can hardly be seen. The seems to rise late. Children and old people suffer from the pinching cold of the morning. Dewdrops full at night and when the morning sun peeps, they look like glittering pearls on grasses and plants. Farmers go to the fields with their cows and ploughs. Children and old people gather straw and make fires to warm themselves. The old people bask in sun. Then people like to eat Chira, Muri, Khai and various kinds of cakes. The sun goes up, fog melts away and people go to their respective duties.

Winter morning is a morning in the winter season. In a winter morning, the sun becomes a late riser. Sunlight falls on the dew-drops on the grass and leaves sparkle like pearls. Nature becomes droopy and fog blankets her Everything looks hazy. Cold wave runs all over. Life seems very numb. People become very lazy and drowsy and link to remain under blanket. They form the habit of basking in the sun. The villagers and the poor people gather straw and burn fires to warm themselves. Winter-breakfast has a special attraction and taste. It offers various kinds of pitha, gur, muri, khai, moa, etc. Date-juice is the popular drink of the time. The morning spell slowly ends as the sun goes up. The winter morning brings joy as well as distress to us. The haves enjoy it while the have-nots, suffer a lot. Despite pains, a winter morning is comfortable and enjoyable. So, I like it very much.

Paragraph - 39

Ambition

Ambition is the objective that a man chooses to achieve in life. Everybody must aim at an ambition to give a drive, a motion, a habitation and a meaning to his life. If a man has no sense of direction and of purpose in life he will waste away all his limited time and energy in the weary wilderness of indecision. A man without ambition is like dumb cuttle driven by circumstances from pillar to post. But a man with a fixed ambition has all his thoughts and actions converging upon only one point. From his boyhood, he steers right onward towards his goal. There is no wastage of energy, on dissipation of the mind, no hesitation and no procrastination. The destination is clear and the body and the mind are willing to march ahead without any fear, indecision, doubt and uncertainty. Life is planned and every step of it is measured and calculated. Thus it is ambition that makes a man go forward towards success and enables him to realise his best self.

Computer

Computer is an ultra-modern electronic device for strong and analysing information fed into it. it has no capacity to do anything by itself. It works on the basis of commands given by the operator. The invention of computer has a long history. Computer was not invented overnight. it took long time and hard labour to invent computer. A computer consists of five major components. They are the input unit, the output unit, the memory unit, the control unit and the arithmetic unit. A computer performs three functions. Firstly, it receives data. Secondly, it processes data by various computations and the third is that emits data. Every computer has a machine language of its own and accordingly it works. Machine language is not fixed. It varies from machine to machine. Computer is of great use to us. It renders great service to mankind. It is like Aladin’s lamp. It has lessened our workloads, saved time and energy and made our life easy and comfortable. We can not go for a single moment without computers. It is part and parcel of our daily life.

Same paragraph collected from another book

A computer is a modern device of information technology as well as data processing and calculating. It is the miracle of modern science. It is operated by software. Without software a computer is useless. Without it modern civilization is meaningless. It is used in every aspect of life. It is used in medical science, engineering, administrative fields, defence, meteorology, astrology, marine science, telecommunication, industrial operation, airways, entertainment, research work etc. It is so fast in calculation that a work which may be done by a computer within a few minutes cannot be done by a man working continuously during his whole life. It has performed an imaginary revolution in the field of information technology. Nowadays Internet is used in innumerable scale. One can get entry to any library or university in anywhere of the world by browsing a computer sitting in Bangladesh. Online communication is a great advantage for us. It can connect whole the world at a glance. We can visit whole the world just sitting in front of it. It is the indispensable part of our modern life.

The word computer is derived from the Latin word ‘computare’. It means calculating machine. It is an ultra-modern electronic device for storing analysing information fed into it. It cannot do anything by itself. It works on the basis of commands given by the invented overnight. Charles Babez, a British professor of Mathematics invented computer. The modern computer was invented by the American scientist Howard Akin. A computer consists of five major components. They are input, output, memory, control and the arithmetic unit. A computer performs three functions. It receives data, processes data by various computations and emits data. Every computer has machine language. It is not fixed. It varies from machine to machine.
