Olympic Games

The Olympic Games were named after the town of Olympia in Greece. The games were first held among the Greeks in Olympia long before the Christian era began. At first, contests included running and leaping, boxing and wrestling and throwing the discus and the javelin. Latter contests with horses were introduced. But in 394 A.D. the Roman emperor stopped the games. For over 1500 years no games were held again. Towards the end of the nineteenth century, a French man called Baron Pierre de Coubertin suggested that the ancient Olympic Games should be revived and that they would be held as a contest not among the Greeks but among the nations of the world. He hoped that athletes and sportsmen meeting every four years and competing with one another would make themselves friendly to one another. Though at first, his suggestions did not get a favourable response, they were ultimately accepted and the first modern Olympic Games were held in 1896 in Athens, the capital city because the original site at Olympia was no longer suitable. Nowadays the Olympic Games take place every four years and are participated in almost all the nations of the world. They cause great excitement all the world over. In fact, the Olympic Games give rise to a world festival and millions of people all over the world enjoy them on television.

Our Student Leaders

There was a time where we could pride ourselves on the qualities of our student leaders. It is they who were then the conscience-keepers of the people. It is they who gave them the right sense of direction and purpose at the time of crisis. Their leadership during the Language Movement in 1952, the People’s Uprising in 1969 and the War of Liberation in 1971 dazzles in our history in letters of gold. But after the achievement of independence history tells us a sad tale. The quality of leadership in the student sector as well as in other sectors has progressively degenerated resulting in campus violence, bloodshed, and even death. It is because of the wrong steps of the majority of our student leaders that the evils like terrorism in the campus, unscheduled closure of institutions, session jam, cramming and copying in the examination halls have struck firm roots in the seats of learning. Academic pursuits and acquisition of knowledge have become matters of the past. The standard of education has hopelessly deteriorated. All this is nothing but suicidal for the student community leading towards a blank future looming large for the whole nation. It is high time that our student leaders should realize their blunders and rise to the occasion to follow the ideals set by their predecessors.

Paragraph - 263

Over-Eating

The habit of over-eating is very dangerous for health. We eat to live not live to eat. But there are some people who foster a view that we have come to this world for one time; so eat whatever you can. There are also some people who eat or want to eat whatever they see. They do not follow any routine of eating or think of the food value. That is why they have to suffer from various indigestion problems and sometimes become too fat to live a normal life. The punishment of the lady guest in W.S. Maugham’s short story “The Luncheon” teaches us the consequence of over-eating. There is a saying, “A man dies not from less eating but from over-eating.” If we turn our eyes to our surroundings we see that those who are in the habit of over-eating suffer from so many problems. But those who are in the habit of eating less live a better life than the first group. Over-eating is not only harmful to health but also a kind of wasteful luxury. So, nobody should develop a dangerous habit of over-eating.

Paragraph - 264

Ombudsman

The ombudsman is a government official whose job is to examine and report on complaints made by the ordinary people about the government or public authorities. If the ombudsmen are honest, wide-spread corruption can be controlled to a great extent. It is known to us that Bangladesh is number one corrupted country in the world. In a country like ours, the ombudsmen can play a very important role to relieve the country from corruption. But it is an extremely deplorable matter that the ombudsmen are also corrupted. When they get any report, they demand a handsome amount of money from the corrupted man. The corrupted person or criminal easily agree to pay whatever the ombudsman demands. So corruption does not decrease, rather it increases. Every sector of our government has earned a high reputation for corruption. If it is not checked, our country will plunge into darkness. So, the conscious citizens of our country should come forward to rescue the nation from the curse. If we are able to create honest ombudsmen, we can hope to set the country free from corruption in near future.

Paragraph - 265

Our College Canteen

Our college canteen is an inseparable part of our college. Here different types of foods and snacks are available. It is situated in the left corner of our college. It remains open mainly during college time. There are chairs, tables, and many other necessary tools in the canteen. There is a manager who takes his seat beside the cash box and collects money. The canteen has much importance for the students. Students have to remain in college for a long time. When they get hungry in this long time, they go to the canteen to take something to satisfy their hunger. Sometimes, the students are seen to pass away their time by gossiping. Students and teachers come to the canteen to eat something when they have no class. There is a separate arrangement for the teachers. Inside the canteen, there is a TV corner. The coloured TV with its dish channels shows different programmes. Sometimes, there is a lot of discussion about political affairs, games, and sports. The canteen is kept neat and clean in all respects in view of its importance.

Same paragraph collected from another book

A canteen is a common sight of a school, college, university or an office. A canteen may be big or small. A canteen has normally two parts. In the front part, there are chairs and tables. In other part, there is the kitchen. There is a manager in a canteen. The manager sits generally in the front part of the canteen and collects money from the customers. There are some bearers in a canteen. They always supply foods to the customers. Sometimes people spend a lot of time in the canteen for the extra enjoyment free of cost. A canteen is a meeting place of friends. Discussions on a wide verity of topics, mostly hot discussions on current politics are held in a canteen. A canteen is thus a busy and noisy place from dawn till the late afternoon.
