XIII Write an essay on any one of the following : ( 1 × 4 = 4 )
a) A visit to a historical place :
There are many historic places worth visiting in Karnataka, out of which Gol Gumbaz is very unique, it is situated in Bijapur district. It is the second largest dome in the world.
The Gol Gumbaz is 124 feet in diameter. The architecture is unique in the sense that the four minarets themselves are the staircases, leading to the top dome. The dome stands unsupported by pillars. The most fascinating feature is its acoustical system, even the faintest whisper around the dome echoes several times.
The most striking feature of the Gol Gumbaz is the seven storied octagonal spires at the four corners and the heavy bracketed cornice below the ramparts. It was built by Mohammad Adil Shah in 1656. It consists of the tombs of Mohammad Adil Shah, his two wives, mistress, daughter and grandson. Mere words cannot describe this great monument. One can enjoy it only by visiting it.
b. Television a companion and spoiler
Television, popularly known as fool’s box. has out lived its nick name. It has not only an important member of our family now who gives us company when we are alone, but also a knowledge box. In the present world of nuclear families, where no one has time for any one, children and adults equally depend on this magic box. The entertainment it brings to our otherwise boring days is incomparable.
News channels bring us worldwide happenings to our home and channels like NGC and Discovery bring the world of animals and plants to our visiting room. Serials relieve house wives of their loneliness and devotional programmes soothes the minds of our grandparents.
But, as a coin has two sides, even this ‘magic box’ has its disadvantages. Children getting addicted to cartoon channels, house wives getting addicted to serials and youth getting influenced by entertainment channels have become a social issue. This wonder box has made us its slave to such an extent that we are not able to be free from its clutches. Its influence started affecting the once warm relations. If used wisely and judiciously, I think TV can remain as our companion.
c. National integration among the youth:
National Integration among the youth of India has become a very crucial issue after India gained Independence. The history, geography languages, multi-culture and multi religion of our country has played a divisive role in the integration among the youth of India. The lack of integration among the youth has posed a serious challenge to India’s unity and integrity and, therefore great efforts have to be made to preserve unity and Integrity among our youth. The youth of the country have to be encouraged to make efforts to integrity themselves.
The Indian Government authorities, authors, play wrights, politicians, teachers and parents have to take the responsibility of integrating values and an encouraging environment, so that the youth shed hatred for each other. Schools and colleges have to conduct Integration camps so that students from different parts of the country take part in the camps and develop understanding and friendship among each other various activities like cultural programmes,group discussion, debates, essay competitions on the theme of national integration and communal harmony should be conducted to create awareness among the youth.
Community work like anti- drug, mass literacy, environmental awareness should be conducted with the participation of youth from different schools and colleges. Such programmes will create a feeling of oneness among themselves. Parents should encourage their children to be friendly with all. If the youth of the country are united and integrated then India will, progress rapidly in every sphere and become a leading country of the world.
