The Qualities of my Close Friend I Admire Most

I have found some extra-ordinary qualities in one of my close friends Jony. Modesty, smartness, sincerity, sense of humour, and altruism are the glaring aspects of his character. I like these virtues because of their tremendous power of influencing other people. If anyone lacks such qualities, he/she will never adjust himself/herself with the changing of the world. Of all the qualities, sincerity and altruism are the best which can adorn any life with distinguished marks. Most of the people we interact with in our daily life are selfish and greedy. But Jony is the man who does not work for getting any return, works simply for the betterment of friends, relatives and other people. I have developed (learnt) sincerity from him. As ‘sincerity’ brings good result in every walk of my life. Nevertheless, I am lacking some of the essential human qualities which stand on my way of developing personality. When something funny events happened, we could not but laugh, even in a formal environment. Like me, young people of this age have some negative qualities. The satellite channels, and the fast moving world influence them so much that they are becoming rude and unfriendly day by day. They prefer outward show rather than the inner human virtues and qualities of a man. I think, preserving and practicing the values and principles is the possible way to save or protect myself and other young persons from the bad influence or negative qualities.

Watching TV

Television, a widely used media of mass communication, is a source of knowledge, pleasure and information. Television can educate people as well as students. It is the other name for the most effective and popular source of recreation for the people. I am a student and watching TV in my favourite pastime. I spend two or three hours a day watching it. My favourite TV programmes are sports, songs and animal world or animal kingdom. Among these programmes animal kingdom is the programme I enjoy most. Animals are the performer of this programme. My favourite TV personalities are Sunil Gavaskar and Wasim Akram, the commentators of the Star Cricket. Their Commentary attracts me most. Bangladeshi TV personality whom I admire most is Hanif Songket, the introducer of ‘Ityady’. We must say that TV is doing good to us by giving us educational and recreational facilities. But commercial programmes broadcast by foreign satellite TVs do harm to our youngsters by threatening our values, traditions and religions beliefs. The TV programmes lead the children more to recreation than to education. The programmes broadcast by BTV is more educative than the others. But nowadays this channel is trying to compete with the satellite channels which is not morally desirable. Among the satellite Channels, I like the National Geography and Discovery Channel most due to its educative values.

Rural Life

Rural life means living in villages or countryside. Life here is full of beauty, purity and altruism. In the lap of nature, man gets pure air, fresh fruit and unmixed pleasure. Moreover, rural life offers the sweet note of birds, beauty of green paddy-field and rare serenity of nature. It is completely different from urban life, which is full of business, traffic jam, pollution and anxiety. Here a man leads a mechanical life which is sometimes boring and monotonous. City dwellers hardly get fresh air to inhale. Their life is almost devoid of friendliness and mental peace. However, urban life provides opportunities for education, recreation, emergency medicare and luxury. There are theatre, cinema, seminars, exhibitions and fairs to entertain the city people. Here one can enjoy all modern amenities living in well-furnished apartment. Even then I prefer rural life where hospitality, friendliness and bounty of people are still available.

My Favourite Neighbour

My Ramjan is our favourite neighbour. He works in the Upazila Degree college as a lecturer in English. He is a very nice man with a pleasant personality. He is eminently known for his hospitality and good manners. In fact, he is tremendously popular with his neighbours due to his integrity and politeness. He extends his hand of assistance to everyone who seeks it. He is a very caring and responsible neighbour. He is said to have become a friend to the poor of the locality. He visits his neighbours now and then and shares their joys and sorrows. Sometimes, he sends foods to the neighbouring families on special occasion. If someone ever falls in distress or difficulty, he helps him profusely. He does not hurt anybody’s feeling when he speaks or does anything. In fact, he never proves harsh or cruel to anybody. His civic sense is so strong and he has set an example of an ideal neighbour in the locality. A large-hearted gentleman, Mr Ramjan is our favourite neighbour.

A Visit to a Place of Historical Importance

Vising any historical place makes up familiar with our ancient heritage and cultural identity. I visited such as place few weeks back along with some of my close friends. It was the Buddhist vihara at Paharpur, Noagaon. It is located to the 200 kilometres northwest of Dhaka. We hired a microbus and started from our college for Pharpur at 6:00 am. The journey was very enjoyable. On the microbus, we took our breakfast. On reaching the spot, we took lunch in a local restaurant there. The food was very tasty and delicious. After having lunch, we started looking at the Buddhist Vihara which was founded in the 7th century by Dharma Paul. Recently, it has been declared a world heritage site for its universal artistic value. Also known as Somapur Mahavihara, it has been declared a world heritage site for its universal artistic value. Also known as Somapur Mahavihara, it is the largest single Buddhist monastery in the Indian sub-continent. There are 198 rooms (kuthri), inside the stone wall of the rooms three are 63 statues of Hindu and Buddhist deities. It is a square building including 117 residential rooms around. The Buddhist vihara bears our ancient religions and cultural heritage. The monastery city represents a unique artistic achievement of our ancient people. I came to learn that the place was ideally an intellectual centre from the 7th century up to the 17th century. My visit to this place opened my inner eyes and gave me an insight into our ancient heritage. I surveyed the whole area with a sense of awe and wonder. We started our return journey at 6:00pm and reached Dhaka at 10:30pm. It has been really a comfortable as well as enjoyable journey.
