My Likings

It is interesting to me to reflect on what I like and what I dislike. The likes of a person mark him off from others. The likes show whether the person is governed by emotions or not. They also show the inner self. I have many likings and dislikings. These likings and dislikings give me both pleasure and pain. Pleasures do not last long. Soon life becomes dull and boring. Then come pains. My first liking is tea. Tea is my best companion. My likings range from tea to passing time in idleness. I like to read books. All sorts of books can give me pleasure. I pass hours after hours reading books. I am a bit unsocial so. I find that books are to my windows in the outer world. They give me everything. They teach me everything. Books are an indispensable part. To talk to my friends is my other liking. Though I am naturally shy still I like to talk to my favourite friends. Spending hours with them, talking about everything or talking not at all – are the greatest joy of my life. When darkness eclipses my mind, I go and seek my friends. It is not possible to like all the things in the world. I dislike the narrow-minded people. I dislike the intolerable traffic jam, the ever-increasing terrorism, the heavy loss of lives and so on. I also do not want to meet new people or see new faces. Still, I am happy with the troubles I have – I don’t want to enlarge them. My likings and dislikings are all a part and parcel of my life.

Newspaper Reading

The utility of newspaper reading cannot be exaggerated. The newspaper brings the world to our door. It develops in us a feeling that we and our country are a part of the vast world outside. By reading a newspaper we get all kinds of information from home and abroad. We get news about the latest political movements and changes in the government. Those who are interested in sports can find the results of cricket, football, hockey and tennis matches. Those who are interested in films and theatres may turn to film reviews. From the pages of a paper, we may get the news about the present international situation and debate on the urgent questions of peace and war. We cannot but wonder at the wide range of news published in a paper. From space research to the share markets, railway time-tables, prayer-timings, advertisements, tender notice and business information – everything has a place in it. Newspaper reading can be highly educative if we only know what to look for in the paper. Thus an hour given to the reading of a newspaper is an hour thoroughly utilized.

Nor’wester

or, North-wester

Nor’wester is one of the natural calamities that often visit our country. Usually in the months of Baishakh and Jaistha nor’wester occurs. The nor’wester blows sometimes in a terrible form. This storm often occurs at that time when the sky is covered with black clouds and the heavy wind blows. Children find pleasure in collecting mangoes under the mango trees. Sometimes the nor’wester comes along with hail-storm. Children pick up the hail and find pleasure in it. Sometimes it causes havoc beyond description. Almost everything that comes within its sweep is destroyed or carried away. Houses and buildings are blown down, giant trees are uprooted. This causes much harm to people. Our people have to struggle against this calamity and disaster. But we cannot do much against this natural calamity. We only make up the loss when the intensity of the nor’wester is over.

Natural Beauties in Bangladesh

Bangladesh is often called a land of natural beauties. She is Nature’s darling child. On no other country of the world has Nature bestowed so much beauty as on Bangladesh. Her beauties consist of bounty and variety. Bangladesh is a playground of Nature. Her tropical climate brings for her abundance of sunshine, on one hand, and plenty of cloud and rain, on the other hand. There is always the play of light and shade in the land. She enjoys the pleasure of sunny weather, the luxury of colours and throws an appeal of an unending ocean of greenery. Her green fields overflowing with golden crops, the spotless blue and cloudy sky, her moonlit and pitch dark night – all these present scenes of romantic charm and beauty. Then come the beauties of the river scenes of Bangladesh. The banks of the rivers present an unbroken view of a variety of sights which enchant the eyes. The grand spectacle of the river on a moonlit night is simply bewitching. In Bangladesh, six seasons in their distinctive roles come in procession. In summer, heat is intense but there are gifts of delicious fruits. In the rainy season floods occur but of hiding and seed among the clouds, the blue sky and the enchanting moonlight at night. Last, of all, spring presents a variety of colours. No one can deny that Bangladesh is a matchless beauty spot in the world.

Night Before the Examination

Examinations are held to evaluate the progress a student has made during the education term. But most of the students suffer from examination phobia. So, the night before the examination is a nightmare to them. I am always regular in studies and do satisfactory results in the examinations. So, it is not a nightmare for me. My parents told me not to keep late hours at night. So, I revised some answers and went to bed. But I could not sleep. So I put the table lamp on and started reading. I thought if the question answers learned well by me are not set in the question paper, what should I do then. So I opened my books and started reading a new chapter. But I could not concentrate. Different thoughts – good and bad thronged into my mind. Some students cut pages of books and keep them concealed in their body. Should I do that? ‘No’, came the reply from within. Just then my mother came in and told me not to read anymore. She put out the light. However, it was about 2 p.m. So I fell asleep. In my sleep, I dreamt that I was writing answers in the examination hall. All the questions were common. I was very happy. Just then the alarm bell of my table clock rang. I woke up. It was a quarter to six. Thus I passed the night before the examination.
