Othello – A Tragic Hero

Othello befits as a tragic hero in Shakespeare’s play; Othello. Firstly, he holds an important role – and is nobly born. He is well respected and admired by all. Secondly, through a ‘fatal flaw’ and the devious plans of Iago directed towards him, he suffers a dramatic fall from grace. Hence, he loses his wife, his status, his dignity and position, and the respect held by others of him. Finally, he comes to know that Iago was the mastermind behind his tragic downfall and his blind trust on Iago caused all his miseries. Unfortunately, by the time he discovers the truth he has already murdered Desdemona and he himself commits a suicide out of regret. Othello himself is the architect of his tragic downfall. His life is ruined by jealousy and excessive pride.

Othello is a general in the Venetian army. He is respected and honoured by the Venetians for his achievements in the battlefield. He is considered an honest and noble general. He is fearless and a trustworthy general. He is referred to as “Valiant Othello” and “The brave Moor” by the Duke and the Senator of Venice. He is appointed, by the mutual consent of the senators, the new governor of Cyprus. He is a tactful and a wise man. When Brabantio attempts to arrest him and swords are drawn on both sides, Othello prevents a possible brawl and says “Keep up your bright sword, for the dew will rust them” and suggests Brabantio resolve the issue peacefully. He is also proud of his achievements and services that he has done for the state. He is confident that “his services shall out-tongue” Brabantio’s complaints against him. He is respected and held in high esteem by everyone. Even Iago, who hates him and conspires against him throughout the play describes him as “a constant, loving noble nature”. Othello is also an eloquent speaker which he nevertheless denies “Rude am I in my speech”. Othello is reputed to be a courageous and a truthful man.

Despite possessing all these noble characteristics, Othello has a ‘tragic flaw’ of jealousy. Jealousy is a trait of his personality that appears to undo Othello. Iago creates the chain of events that sparks jealousy in Othello, and eventually leads to his dreadful downfall. In Othello, Shakespeare describes the tragic decline of a man who, in a fit of jealous rage, ruins what he loves best. The marriage between Othello and Desdemona is a true love based on a mutual knowledge and valuing of each other’s worth. The love of Othello and Desdemona overcomes the barriers of colour, race and age. As soon as jealousy enters into the mind of Othello, his marriage is destroyed. His naivety and gullibility also proves to be costly for him and pave the way for his downfall. Iago cunningly exploits Othello’s naivety and sets him down the spiral of jealousy. In Act 3, Scene 3, Iago convinces Othello easily that Desdemona has deceived him as she had not hesitated to hoodwink her own father with deceit “She did deceive her father, marrying you”. Othello blindly accepts the false accusations and even feels indebted to Iago for his friendship and honesty “I’m indebted to you forever.” Othello does not attempt to approach Cassio to confirm his doubt and does not give Desdemona a chance to prove her chastity.

Othello’s excessive pride is another of his shortcomings. His sinful pride makes him a vulnerable character to be manipulated by Iago. If he had not been so proud, he might have talked to Desdemona about her affair with Cassio and resolved the issue. He is so proud that he thinks everyone is submissive and loyal to him. He believes that a man with a damaged pride is no longer a man but a monster. Desdemona has made him a monster by cheating on him “A horned man is a monster and a beast.” He lets the pride get the best of him, and this influences his judgment to a degree that he actually ends up murdering Desdemona.

Like other tragic heroes, Othello also eventually realizes that the misfortune that befell him was caused by his own jealousy and sinful pride.  He discovers that he was wrong in believing everything Iago said and regrets the way he was compelled to act. He discovers the true story about the handkerchief and perceives Iago’s lies. He heard the truth from Desdemona but did not trust her. Unfortunately by the time he realizes the truth, he has already murdered Desdemona. He regrets his actions and attempts to alleviate others’ anger towards him by claiming that he was not jealous but ‘wrought’ and “Perplexed in the extreme”.  Finally, he commits suicide as he cannot live with the fact that he has murdered his loyal wife.

In conclusion, Othello’s rise to prominence and his tragic downfall are caused by no one but himself. He wins the hearts of every Venetians through his bravery, honesty and noble character and in return he is rewarded with the post of an army general. Similarly, he himself is the architect of his downfall. His jealousy and sinful pride set him on the spiral of miseries and misfortunes. It is in his own hands that his fate rests. He suffers a miserable downfall and is made a tragic hero by his jealousy and excessive pride.

Othello – Jealousy or Uncontrolled anger.

othello

In Othello, jealousy and anger are the two major emotions that control the play. In the play jealousy is evident in the words and actions of Iago and Othello in particular. There is also an element of pride that influences some of the characters of the play to behave or act in a certain way. Brabantio’s pride is hurt by Desdemona’s decision to marry an African man. Othello’s pride is wounded by his belief that Desdemona is having an affair with Cassio. But the emotion that shapes and controls the entire play is neither jealousy nor pride but an intense and uncontrolled anger. Anger is the driving force behind the cunning plans of Iago, the murders of Roderigo, Desdemona and Emilia and the suicide of Othello.
The uncontrolled anger of Othello led to him murdering his wife Desdemona. At the start of the play, he is a very calm, patient and rational person. But he fell a prey to Iago’s manipulation believed blindly that Desdemona is having an affair with Cassio. In Act I, Scene II, when Brabantio confronts Othello and blames him for stealing his daughter from him, he humbly asks Brabantio how he can prove his charges wrong “Where will you that I go / To answer this your charge?” He is a proud man. He takes pride in his achievement and services that he has done to the Venetians. When Iago suggests that Othello run away since Brabantio is coming for him and plans to prosecute him, he says to Iago, “My services, which I have done the signory/ Shall out-tongue his complaints”, indicating that he is confident of proving the charges of Brabantio on the basis of him services to the Venetians. It takes Iago much effort to manipulate Othello and convince him of Desdemona and Cassio’s affair. Othello asks Iago for an “ocular proof” that Desdemona is cheating on him. He is furious when Iago allows him to see the handkerchief which he gave to Desdemona when he first met her. Enraged by the proof, he starts believing everything that Iago says. He is no more a patient, rational and soft-spoken general but an angry, blood thirsty beast. Once Desdemona was his soul’s joy but now he intends to kill her: “I will chop her into messes!”

Iago, who cunningly plans the downfall of Othello and other characters, is also driven by anger. Iago’s hatred for Othello is due to the fact that he was denied a promotion to lieutenancy by Othello. Michael Cassio is appointed lieutenant in his stead, whom Iago considers an outsider and an inexperienced and incompetent officer “mere prattle without practice”. In addition to this, Iago suspects that Othello and his wife Emilia have had an affair; in a soliloquy at the end of act I, scene III he reveals possibly the true nature of his hatred for Othello: “I hate the Moor; And it is thought abroad that ‘twixt my sheets He has done my office”. Iago is a proud Venetian. He calls Cassio a “Florentine” and Othello a “Moor”. He hates the fact that an African man, Othello, is honoured and respected in the Venetian society. His hatred for Othello leads to a jealousy in him. He cannot stand to see the qualities of a noble man in the Moor and a beautiful Venetian girl, whom he also loves, as the wife of the Moor “The Moor – howbeit that I endure him not / Is of constant, loving, noble nature”. He takes out his anger by devising cunning plans against Othello and Cassio. Most of his evil plots are not pre-planned but he just does whatever it takes to hurt others. Maddened by his rage, he never thinks of the catastrophic consequences of his wicked plans; the deaths of Emilia and Desdemona were not the initial goal of his plan. Although, his anger is raging and intense, he has control over himself. He cunningly twists his words and sympathizes with the tragedy of every character. He wins the trust of everyone and gets the name of “Honest Iago”. Everyone seeks Iago’s advice in difficult times. Towards the end of the play, Othello depends heavily upon Iago’s words and declares him a wise man “O, thou art wise, ‘tis certain”. Despite the fact that Iago is respected and honoured by other characters as a wise and an honest man, Iago’s anger is not quelled but intensifies as the play goes on. He chose wickedness to make others suffer and pacify his anger.
In the course of the play, other characters exhibit anger in their actions. Roderigo, a long-time suitor of Desdemona, is angry as Desdemona chooses to marry Othello instead of him. Unlike Iago and Othello, Roderigo does not intend to take out his anger on others or hurt them. His only goal is to win Desdemona’s heart and he will go to any extent to achieve that. Towards the end of the play he is furious with Iago when he finds out that all the gifts that he has sent to Desdemona through Iago have not reached her. He finds out that Iago has been keeping all the money and gifts and did not do what he promised to do “You have told me she hath received them / But I find none.” Roderigo is also the first character in the play to realize that Iago does not keep his word and he is not to be trusted “Your words and performances are no kin together.” Desdemona’s decision to marry Othello also causes anger in Brabantio. He is enraged as his daughter has married a black man without his consent. He blames Othello for using sorcery to steal his daughter from him. Previously, she was so opposed to marriage that she even rejected “The wealthy” and “curled darlings” of Venice. He unsuccessfully attempts to break the relationship of Othello and Desdemona in court and to put Othello in jail for his “theft”. He cannot overcome his rage over his daughter’s marriage to the Moor and succumbs to his anger. Emilia is Desdemona’s devoted handmaiden and is maddened with anger when Othello confronts her with his misguided convictions concerning Desdemona’s chastity. However, to please her husband, she steals the handkerchief of her beloved Desdemona, and this leads to the completion of Iago’s cunning and monstrous plans. She resents Othello and even wishes that Desdemona “had never seen him”. She is also the first character to suspect that “some cogging, cozening slave” has manipulated Othello and “devised this slander” to get “some office”. In short, not only Othello or Iago are driven by their anger but other character’s actions are also influenced by anger.

However, in Othello, there are characters who do not surrender to their anger. Bianca is Cassio’s mistress. She is not happy with Cassio when he gives her a handkerchief to copy. She suspects that Cassio is having an affair with someone else and the handkerchief is a “token from a newer friend”. Unlike Othello, she does not lose her mind but she acts rationally and even invites Cassio to her house for a dinner. She is the sole character of the play who confronts Iago and does not seek his advice. Even if she had found herself in a tight situation, she would not ask Iago for his help or advice. Her mature and rational approach would have been an obstacle for Iago to influence her. She resolutely denies the charges of murder against her. She explains that she and Cassio had a dinner together at her house earlier that night. Desdemona does not display any sign of anger or jealousy throughout the entire play. She is a kind hearted, loving and innocent woman. She truly loves Othello. Even when Othello does not treat her well, she is not disappointed but worried about what ails her “lord”. At the end of the play, while lying on her death bed, she tries to neutralise any legal ramifications for Othello following her death by taking blame for her own murder “Nobody – I myself – farewell”. Arguably, Desdemona and Bianca are two of the few characters of the play who are not prompted by their anger to take any inappropriate decisions.

Apart from Desdemona and Bianca, almost all other characters’ thoughts and actions are influenced by anger. Iago’s anger at being passed over, arouses jealousy in him and makes him plot his evil plans against others. Brabantio cannot overcome his anger and disappointment with Desdemona and is eventually killed by it. Othello’s thoughts and decisions are dominated by anger. He turns from a noble and honourable army general to a murderer. Iago was propelled by his anger to plan his deceitful plans against others and arouses anger in them. The anger in other characters results into the tragedy of the play.

Smoking

Smoking is a deadly addiction which puts the smokers’ lives at risk as well as the lives of passive smokers, particularly the family members. Why would anybody choose to take up this disgusting and costly habit?

When asked, smokers come up with some lame excuses as to why they smoke. Some would say that they use smoke as a support when things go wrong and others would defend their addiction by saying that they smoke when they feel bored and lonely. A nice way to kill your boredom!

Cigarettes contain Nicotine and it is proven that Nicotine is more addictive than heroin. Hence, once a smoker, always a smoker. Addicted smokers need enough nicotine over a day to ‘feel normal’ – to satisfy cravings or in other words, control their mood

There are as many as 7,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke that are chemically active and can potentially trigger fatal changes in the body. Moreover, Tobacco smoke contains over 60 known cancer-causing chemicals. Smoking harms nearly every organ in the body, causing many diseases and reducing health in general.

Smokers are 32 per cent more likely than non-smokers to end up in hospital.  Children in smokers’ households are four times more likely to be admitted to hospital with respiratory illness.

Smoking raises blood pressure, hence smokers are more likely to develop heart disease and stroke. They are more likely to get cancer than non-smokers. This is particularly true of lung cancer, throat cancer and mouth cancer, which hardly ever affect non-smokers. One in ten moderate smokers and almost one in five heavy smokers (more than 15 cigarettes a day) will die of lung cancer.


Smoking stains your teeth and gums. It causes an acid taste in the mouth and contributes to the development of ulcers. Smoking also affects your looks: smokers have paler skin and more wrinkles. This is because smoking reduces the blood supply to the skin and lowers levels of vitamin A. Who would want to look like this?

Smoking-related diseases kill more than 15,000 Australians every year. After every 28 minutes, one Australian dies of a smoking-related disease, adding up to more than 50 deaths per day. We could save 50 Australians every day.  If a fraction of these deaths were caused by infectious disease, terrorism, road trauma or any other factor then the government would surely take extreme action to save lives.

One might argue that the revenue that the government collects from Cigarette taxes prevents the government from taking any action against smoking. This argument is totally irrelevant and baseless. The Australian Government collects about A$10 billion from Cigarette taxes and spends more than A$32 billion on smoking-related diseases every year. In addition to this, 75,000 beds in hospitals are occupied by smoking patients every year.

What would be the advantages of giving up smoking? If any smoker does not smoke only for one month then he would save up to $490. His lungs well be working more efficiently. Exercising will be easier for him and his immune system starts to recover.

Please consider the evidence before taking up smoking. This is an addiction that kills at least 15,000 Australians every year. The consequences of taking up this addiction can be disastrous for you and for your loved ones.

Review: Sadako and The Thousand Paper Cranes (Elener Coerr)

Image: Penguin.com.au

It is a biography book about the life of a young Japanese girl who was affected by nuclear radiation in the Japanese city of Hiroshimain 1945. She died of Leukaemia (disease caused by Nuclear Weapon). It is a true story of young girl who suffered from war like thousands of other innocent people who do not have anything to do with the war. In this book there is a message of peace and the sense of never giving up for everyone. This book is about the destruction and thunderbolt that nuclear weapon can cause. The writer says that it can affect thousands of innocent people like Sadako who have nothing to do with the war.

Sadako has dark hair with highlights from the sun. She is tall with long legs. She is quite impatient girl. She likes festivals, people, gathering and music. She was born to be a runner. Once her mother said about her, “She learned to run before she could walk.” She was the second children of Sasaki family. She had two brothers and one sister. She always thinks of her family. She does not want worry her family when she feels sick. She wishes to be with her family all the time. She cares about nothing but her family and getting into the racing team of junior high school. She likes to go everywhere. She is hard worker and practices running every day. She wishes to get into the racing team of junior high school next year. She cared about nothing but her family and getting into the racing team of junior high school. She is optimistic. Although, she is diagnosed with Leukaemia but again she hopes to recover soon and prays to get healthy. She works hard to fold 1000 paper cranes to get a wish. She is brave until the end.

Chizuko is Sadako’s best friend. She wishes Sadako to recover soon. She even find a remedy for Sadako’s illness. She brings a pair of scissors and papers for Sadako and teaches her how to fold paper cranes. She tells Sadako that if she folds 1000 paper cranes then she will get a wish no matter what so ever her wish is and thus she might recover from Leukaemia. Sadako had loving parents; Mr. and Mrs. Sasaki. They had a barber shop and were not that rich. Her older brother Massahiro, was quite helpful for her. He offered his help to hang 1000 paper cranes for her. Her sister Mitsu 9, used to help her in household chores and tried to make her happy. She had a younger brother Eiji 6, whom she always used to help to get ready for school. When she was hospitalized, Eiji used to bring paper for her to fold them into paper cranes.

The story starts with celebration of PEACE DAY. Sadako, her family and her friend Chizuko attend the Peace Day ceremony in the memorial of those whom they lost in a deadly atomic bomb attack by U.S in Hiroshima city of Japan in 1945. She was quite excited to attend the ceremony as she will find lots of people there and she will be able to eat her favourite food there. After some days, there was going to be a race on the Big Friday. Since Sadako was a passionate runner so she was eager to join the race. She was born to be a runner. She entered the race and emerged as a winner. She then focused on her preparation to break into the racing team of junior high school next year. But soon she found that while running,

she was feeling a bit dizzy and unwell. At first, she did not take it serious. But one day, when she was running in her school she fell down quite awkwardly; on trying to get up she again fell. She was then taken to hospital and to her great surprise she was found to be suffering from Leukaemia. At first she could not believe her eyes that she was down with Leukaemia. She was very disappointed when she learned that she had to stay in hospital for a long time. Thus, she was going to miss the chance to get into the racing team of junior high school. She was angry with herself as she thought that she was worrying her family with her illness. It was hard time as she never had been so lonely in her entire life.

Sadako had a very good and caring friend, Chizuko. Chizuko was quite worried about the illness of her friend. She even found a way to help Sadako recover from Leukaemia. One day when Sadako was in hospital, she brought papers and pair of scissors for her. She taught her how to fold paper cranes. She told Sadako that if she manages to fold 1000 paper cranes she would get a wish no matter whatsoever her wish might be. Thus she might recover from her illness. Sadako then started folding paper cranes. Her brother hung the paper cranes to the ceiling to her. Her family, class mates and even the nurse were collecting paper for her to fold them into paper cranes. But Sadako was not doing quite well. Day by day her condition was worsening but she never gave up. She was encouraging even a fellow patient, a young boy named Kenji not to lose hope. She always tried to show as if she is happy and healthy whenever her family paid her a visit as she did not want to worry them. In midway to 1000, she started feeling well. It seemed as if the paper cranes have started showing their magic. She recovered so much that the doctor allowed her to go back to her home. She was delighted and she started thinking about the junior high school’s racing team. Alas! She could stay only for one week at home before she was hospitalized once again. She passed that one week mostly in receiving the guests and visitors who had come to ask about her healthy. She did pass a good, happy week with her family. This time she was getting weaker and weaker rapidly. She could not eat anymore. Even she could not fold paper cranes anymore. She was lying in her bed all the time. Her mother made a very beautiful   dress (KIMONO) for her but she could hardly wear the cloth and walk in the room. Now and then she was wondering how it feels to die. Will she be living a good life after death? One day her family came to pay her a visit. While they were talking with each other, Sadako fell asleep.
And she never woke up.

Sadako’s story is a message of peace for the world. She was a courageous and hardworking girl. Though she was diagnosed with Leukaemia but she did not give up hope to make into the racing team of the junior high school. She had love for everyone in her heart. She used to enjoy her time in the company of her family and friends. She was a caring girl. She did not want to worry her family due to her illness. She always wanted to see them happy and cheerful.

Since her childhood, Elener Coerr was interested in Japan. She always wanted to visit Japan one day. 1949, She visited Japan. During her stay, she heard many stories about Sadako’s

running ability, courage and her tragic death caused by Leukaemia (Atomic bomb radiation). She was so much inspired by the story of young girl Sadako that she decided to write a book about her life. She tries to convey the message of peace to the people of the world while narrating Sadako’s story.

Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes is a peaceful struggle to convince the people of the world to give up fighting. The writer wishes the earth to be a peaceful place to live for everyone. She beautifully describes about Sadako’s life. She covers the life of Sadako as well as the horrible consequences of war. Through Sadako’s courage, determination and the sense of never giving up she wants to teach to all her readers these lessons. Everyone shall find it interesting. It is full of pathos, hope and courage. She represents Sadako’s life completely; her passion to win the race, her love for her family and friends and even her favourite food.

I believe every one once should read this book in their life. At the end of the book they might be able to understand how harmful and devastating the war can be for human races.
They might start feeling some pain in their heart for fellow human being who is suffering from war in different part of the world. This is a great book by Elener Coerr and it does deserve to be perused at least once by the lovers of peace and fellow human being.

Should students wear school uniform? Essay sample

Should students have to wear school uniforms?

There is a keenly debated discussion within Australian schools over whether or not students should have to wear school uniforms. I believe that students should wear uniforms. In my opinion school uniforms can help reduce bullying rates in schools. I also believe that they can bring a sense of equality between students. Given that school uniforms are cost-effective, I see no reason why all school students should not be wearing school uniforms.

School uniforms can reduce bullying rates in schools. Bullying is a particularly significant issue in Australian schools, partly because of the cultural diversity among Australian students. All these cultural groups have values and beliefs that are unique to one another. Often, students tease and bully one another because of their cultural differences. Bullying will often result in students experiencing depression, anger and giving rise to skirmishes and quarrels. I think that wearing uniforms will help students see one another as individuals and mates, and not judge one another based simply on their culture. Hence school uniforms can help prevent culture-based bullying in our schools.

Uniforms can also foster a sense of equality between students. Some students to a well-to-do families are more privileged than others. Choice of clothing for the handicapped students is a big issue as fashion is used by many students as a key status-symbol. Through their fashion they try to be seen as equals to other students. I firmly believe that if all students wear uniforms, social status would no longer be an issue for poorer students. Furthermore, uniforms will enable all students to focus on their studies.

School uniforms are also cost-effective. All students can afford school uniforms. Students who do not wear uniforms have to wear different clothes at least twice a week. This can be a very exorbitant way of dressing for school. On the other hand, students who wear school uniforms have to purchase uniforms only once in a year. They can wear this uniform every day of the year.

In conclusion, I believe that there are many benefits to wearing school uniform. A uniform is affordable, it reduces bullying rates in schools and it fosters a sense of equality in schools. For these reasons I believe that all students should wear uniforms.

Lines from Count of Monte Cristo

Book: Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas
The Book Count of Monte Cristo is indeed a great classic. You find hope, right and wrong, suffering, revenge, relations and suspense in this book. There are some lines that you can not live without sharing them with others. I am also going to share some lines here.

“Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes. You must look into that storm and shout as you did in Rome. Do your worst, for I will do mine! Then the fates will know you as we know you.”
“There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must of felt what it is to die, Morrel, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.“Live, then, and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget, that until the day God will deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these two words, ‘Wait and Hope.”“The friends we have lost do not repose under the ground…they are buried deep in our hearts. It has been thus ordained that they may always accompany us.”

“Misfortune is needed to plumb certain mysterious depths in the understanding of men; pressure is needed to explode the charge. My captivity concentrated all my faculties on a single point. They had previously been dispersed, now they clashed in a narrow space; and, as you know, the clash of clouds produces electricity, electricity produces lightning and lightning gives light.”“Ah, lips that say one thing, while the heart thinks another.”“Perhaps what I am about to say may seem strange to you, who are socialists, and vaunt humanity and your duty to your neighbor, but I never seek to protect a society which does not protect me, and which I will even say, generally occupies itself about me only to injure me; and thus by giving them a low place in my esteem, and preserving a neutrality towards them, it is society and my neighbor who are indebted to me.”

“… for in prosperity prayers seem but a mere medley of words, until misfortune comes and the unhappy sufferer first understands the meaning of the sublime language in which he invokes the pity of heaven!”

Everything vanished in a glimpse of an eye
Now left apart to sigh and sigh
O’God! where is liberty and noble friends?
Return the old days and the old friends

Pride, haughty and dislikes
These all vices of life

I hate you Cat!

Ye are an opportunist
Ye are a mischievous traitor
Ye aye show off thine brutality upon feeble beings
But live degraded life of an escapee from a dog

I enjoy the scene
When thou like a rogue destitute
Run inside out, upside down
Just for a scrap of food

I rejoice heartily
When ye are chased by dog;
fast and furiously

Thine mewing has always mocked me
Thine robbery has always hurt me
I always fume with hatred and hyper
When I see ye or any of thine brother!

 

When We were Together!

O’ God, when we all were together,
roaming, fighting and playing,
going on a trip on foot here and there,
with sonnies, life never looked boring

Now every thing, is available,
But the childhood bliss is missing,
come let’s be merry and live a jolly life,
who knows if this might be the last moment of life!

 

In my Dreams…

 

Dream


In my dreams…
I roam over the gorgeous vales
just like a rogue cloud that hover over the vales
rushing and running, without getting tired
enjoying and laughing and going wild


But some times a horrible nightmare

does come to scare
haunting and smothering and tormenting
but I succeed in opening mouth and shouting


ACT Essay Writing Test

    ACT Writing Test Prompt:
At some high school, Teachers have considered allowing each student to choose the books he or she will read for English class rather than requiring all students in class to read the same books. Some teachers support such a policy because they think student will greatly improve their reading skills if they read books they find interesting. Other teachers do not support such a policy because they think that students will learn more by participating in class discussions with others who read the same books. In your opinion, should each individual student be allowed to choose the books he or she reads for English class?

Certainly, reading book of one’s own choice and selection is an enjoyment and fun. But at high school level the system or the method adopted by the teacher to allow the students to pick out any English book according to their own desire as an English text book is not a wise and legitimate decision near me.

There is a problem right from the beginning that every student choose a book according to his own mentality and knowledge. Where as the lazy bluffers and weak students go and choose a book of their caliber. This distinction and discrimination right from the starts is an horrible issue.

Though reading one’s own selected and favorite book is fun but on the other hand, a question arises whether the student is finding the book easy and doing well with the book. Is he finding it easy to accomplish assignments and easy to digest the book or he is just stuffing his head with the things that he doesn’t understand? Another major problem in this regard is this that if the teacher has no idea about the book that his student has opted and he’s never read that book before then you can imagine that how heavy for the student it’ll be to go through the book. Plus, he won’t be having any chance to exploit  the class discussion held betwixt him and his class mates because every students have selected different books according to their own desire and there won’t be any one to oblige him get out of the marsh of difficulty that he was caught by his misjudgment of choosing a book that he can’t go through.

Similarly, permitting the students in choosing a book for themselves will restrict the teachers in their task to bring the lazy bluffers on the right track. At first the lazy ones won’t select any solid literature book instead of this they will go for any inferior one. And they’ll be having this pretext available 24/7 to defend themselves in not doing the assignments that they didn’t understand the passage and the teacher also didn’t elucidate and clarified the passage to them.

In nut shell, to avoid the worst case scenario, it’s very important and necessary that the teachers  should select a proper and solid literature book for his/her all pupils so that he can give his best in explaining the book to them and thus the students will learn sufficient and good English in a more proper and broader way.


Autumn

It’s now turning cold gradually

the sun will not shine furiously

the winter is set to prevail

the summer is fading

the loaded trees are now yielding

the pale leaves are now falling

the garden’s beauty is splashed

the gorgeous flowers are perished

fields are turned yellow

                                     no more visitors for the meadow

chums are down with flu

It is now the barren Autumn!

What if …

What if this lovely bright day never goes down again

What if the horrible and dark night never appear again

What if all chums aye embrace each other

What if all chums aye be benevolent to each other

What if the poor is never ignored due to his wealth

What if the reach is never favored due to his wealth

What if the brother is not betrayed by brother again

What if the brother is not afflicted by brother again

What if we stop cheating one another treacherously

What if we do our every deed righteously

What if the wealth is not the standard of man in the society

What if the race is not the standard of man in the society

What if no more penny is spent on arms and artillery

What if efforts are made to overcome the chasm of hostility

What if every one rejoices on the success of fellow buddy

What if every one should rise above ego and envy

What if we forgive the mistakes of our friends

What if we have mercy and kindness for our friends

What if we become the picture of kindness and mercy

What if we become the picture of pity and honesty

What if no more carnage is carried out by the name of religion

What if no more unrest is launched by the name of change or revolution

What if the leaders abandon the looting and corruption

What if the leaders abandon sacrificing the innocent masses in their mission

What if we fight against the maladies and calamities unitedly

What if we make our earth a charming and fascinating home unitedly

Get up! Get up!

Get up!

Get up! Get up!

Get up! Get up!
It is not the time for more slumber or sleep
abandon the day dream and come out of blanket
Hurry up and start not to creep
it is time to rise and gleam
Get up! Get up!

Get up! Get up!
No room to be idle any more
no room to be stagnant any more
Come on, don’t try to be a lazy bluffer
indulge in life like an exquisite runner
Get up! Get up!

Get up! Get up!
Leave now yawning and wonder
think positive and quit all the blunder
Rush towards thine task like an ant
no more plea or excuse that you can’t
Get up! Get up!

Get up! Get up!
The more you go, nearer will be thine destination
don’t hesitate because thee can reach beyond the imagination
Don’t prophecy about thine destiny full with failure and tragedy
with thine noble deeds thou can make glorious thine Destiny
Get up! Get up!
