Example of a paragraph Writing :

My first day at school

I vividly remember my first day at school. It is still vibrant in my mind. I was then a boy of ten. One fine sunny morning in January, father took me to cotton collegiate Higher secondary school. I was admitted to class V. The principal asked a peon to take me to the classroom.

The class teacher was a kindly and middle-aged man. He. Was giving a lesson in English Grammar. I instantly liked it. When the bell for recess rang, we came out. Most of the shouted, played and even quarrelled.

But I was to shy to mix with them. I remembered just an onlooker. We had a few more periods. I, however, made friends with two or three boys who sat on the same bench with me. One of them, Shantanu, got quite friendly with me.

When I came back home, my mother took me in her arms. I became a high school student but my mother still behaves with me like a small Baby. I seemed to have grown up in the course of a few periods.

My last day at school

That was my last day at school. It was on the 6rh of February last year. I went to school to collect my admit card for the HSLC examination. My classmates were already in the school campus.

We sat in a large room. All of us wore a sad look. The headmaster gave us a few words of useful advice. Our Sanskrit Sir blessed us by citing a Sanskrit sloka. He explained to us the meaning of the sloka. I went deep into my heart.

After the gathering was over, I bowed before my companions in the school. I felt a pang separation. I sudden impulse of love for everything in my school overwhelmed me. O, I would no longer be here! I couldn’t resist my tears. I hurried off for home.

The school Library

The school library has always been a place of attraction for me. This is the place which always beckons me. This is the place where I spent my leisure hours delightfully. Whenever the book library is open, I peep into it to have a glimpse of the books.

The books are arranged serially and subject wise on the shelves of large bookcases. I consult the catalogue kept on the table.

I soon borrow a book from the librarian and start reading it at a table in a quiet corner of the library. I have formed a very good habit of reading books. As soon as I finish reading a book, I feel an urge to read another. I am an avid reader of books.

The school Magazine

The school magazine is an organ of the students of a school. It is something different from a popular news magazine or a learning journey. It is generally published once a year. A student edits the school magazine under the guidance of a teacher. It is made up of poems, essays, short stories etc.

Which are mostly written by the students of the school? It also contains the news of the school. The school magazine is an inseparable part of the school. I encourage budding writers to practice writing. It is really a trill to see once’s name and once’s writing in print.

So, whenever a magazine is published, they write stories or poems. Thus it helps to discover talent. It helps to train up future poets and writers. It helps a student’s to cultivate his faculty of thinking and imagination. It offers him a scope, an outlet for expression of his thoughts and ideas.

Television

Television or TV is one of the latest marvels of science. The credit for its invention goes to J. L. Bread, a Scottish scientist. In India, television is still in the primary stage though we have quite a number of T.V. centres and relay stations. Of course, India is making rapid strides in the field of television. The T. V is an improvement upon the radio. Here we not only hear but also see. It provides us with enjoyment and entertainment.

It is also a medium of instructions. Dramas, films, song, news, sports, talks by eminent persons are all shown on the T.V screen. A television set enables us to enjoy a football match in Germany or a cricket match in the West Indies from the cosy corner of our drawing room or dining room.

It has diminished the importance of the radio and the cinema. T.V has brought the whole world within our easy reach only if we can afford to purchase a T.V set.

Our National flag

like every other country in the world, India, our country, too has its own flag. This flag is the symbol of our national honour, pride, prestige and ideal. The national flag is held in the highest esteem by every man who loves his country.

Our National flag is three colour with Saffron at the top, white in the middle and dark green at the bottom.

All the strips are horizontal and are equal breadth. Saffron stands for Courage and sacrifice, white stands for purity, truth and peace and green stand for valour and faith. In the centre in the white portion, there is a wheel which represents eternal progress and dynamism.

It is dark blue in colour having twenty-four spokes. Our National triple colour is regarded to be something sacred to us. We should bow down before it. We feel proud when it flutters in the air. We should always honour it.

We must not under any circumstances show any disrespect to it. We should also not allow others to show any disrespect to our flag. We should always salute the national flag.

The duties of Students

Students are the citizens of tomorrow. As such, they have a lot of duties to perform. They have duties to themselves, to their parents, to their country and to the humanity at large. Student life is the seed-time of life. So, a student should sow the seeds of the future carefully.

He should build up a sound body, form good habits and cultivate good manners. To be good and great in life, he should have genuine love and respect for his parents and teachers. He should read the life’s of a great man and follow their examples. A student is, above all, a learner. He should read his textbooks carefully and learn them.

How should love his neighbours and his countryman? He should spend a part of his time in social service. He should know the problems of his country but should abstain from joining politics in student life.

Discipline

Discipline is the proper training of the mind and character. Obedience is the very essence of discipline. If else don’t obey our parents and teachers, we cannot learn from them. We cannot live in an orderly society without discipline.

No school No college can exist without a disciple. Discipline is the watchword in the army. An army without discipline is only a mob, it can never win a battle.

Discipline is the law of nature. Winter is followed by spring. Summer flows spring. Discipline is also the law of the universe. Stars and planets move in their respective course and don’t clash with one another.

The most difficult types of discipline are self-discipline. A man of self-discipline is sure to attain success in life.

Early Rising

” Early To Bed and Early to Rising

Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise”.

We all know this English proceed about the benefits of early rising. Early rising is certainly a good habit. But we don’t know if it makes one wealthy. Making it a life – long habit is indeed a wise up which leads to happiness in life.

Early rising is definitely a good and statutory habit. It has a lot of advantages for the early riser. It gives a good start to his day’s hard work. He can do more work than a late riser.

Any work done in the calm quiet morning hours is generally well done. An early riser has plenty of time. He need not hurry through anything. An early riser has more chance to succeed in life than a late riser who whiles away the best hours of the morning in bed.

The choice of Books

‘Art is long but time is fleeting’. We have countless books but we have no time to read all the books. So, we have to pick and choose. Students have no option so far as their textbooks are concerned. For books other than textbooks, they can take the help of their teachers.

But there is an ordinary teacher, the laymen who have none to guide them in the matter of reading books. Such readers should seek the advice of well-read scholars. But there are some books which everyone should read. These are classic or great books of everlasting interest and appeal in each language.

We should read books that’s entertain as well as instruct us. We should not read each or every book we get. Also, we should not read them with equal attention. We should remember the saying of Bacon: some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.

Right and Duties Of a Citizen

A citizen is a member of a sovereign democratic state. He enjoys both civil and political rights. It is up to the state to ensure that every citizen’s house is his own caste and he can live their free from any kind of threat.

He should have freedom of thought, speech and association. He should have the right to vote and hold a public office. But right always goes through duties.

They go hand in hand. A citizen, in his turn, has duties to the state. He should obey the law of the state and pay taxes. He must be loyal to the state and ready to defend his country, if necessary, even with his own life.

It is as much as the duty of the state to ensure the safety and security of the citizens as it is the duty of every single citizen to uphold the peace and stability of the state. A country prospers only when it’s citizens are aware of their rights as well as their duties.
