In many countries, today insufficient respect is shown to older people.

What do you think may be the reasons for this?

What problems might this cause in society?

Answer:

In this fast-paced world, local traditions are first causalities of globalization. While people are busy celebrating the materialistic achievements, very few are concerned about the old generation, forget acknowledging their parent’s due contribution in the success. This is an attempt to account for the reasons of the trends and their repercussions in the future.

Let’s begin with causes of the trend. Due to change in priorities youngsters value their careers to the extent of sacrificing their family time. Lack of attention makes veterans feel unwanted. To reconcile the relations, they may ask off-springs few questions which are labelled by the youth as an intrusion in their lives, leading to disrespect. Moreover, rarely do we see senior members fit enough to care for themselves. Their physical, as well as monetary dependence, is abhorred, leading to further disregard. For example, many youngsters leave their countries, never to return to their parents and family lest they may depend on youth’s new-found treasure.

If this continues further, one can foresee a bleak future for the humanity. Firstly, lack of respect for the seniors of a house leads to dysfunctional families as youngsters opt for nuclear families at drop of a hat. Secondly, parents who are technologically and monetarily dependent on their children are considered as a liability and dispatched to old-age homes which have sprung up like mushrooms all over the country. The trends estrange the families jolting the foundations of family systems.

Looking back, it clear that changes in priorities and moral grounds of the current generation are main reasons for such an apathy towards elderly. If this continues to happen they institution of families itself will be challenged in the future.

Advances in technology and automation have reduced the need for manual labour. (opinion) Therefore, working hours should be reduced.

To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Automation is pervasive across all industries and has reduced human efforts. At the same time, it has given birth to many phenomena ranging from industrialization to globalization, keeping people discussing whether to decrease the number of working hours or not. It seems that the number of working hours must be kept similar.

Let’s consider manufacturing industry. Indeed, the automation has reduced the human labours drastically but also has reduced number of labourers instead of working hours. At the same time, the globalization and revolution in transportation have increased the consumer demands of goods many-folds. To manufacture for such soaring demands, the fired workers work in other industries which help bridge the gap between demand and supply, in turn, creating new jobs. These task forces put in 24 hours a day which in fact demands more number of working hours.

On the other hand, one can argue that in Information Technology (IT) sector, automated programs assist the personnel by reducing number of hours required to complete the tasks. Additionally, better hardware makes it easy to have sophisticated programs which can reduce the need to work extensively. However, increasing productivity standards demand constant improvement in such codes and hardware. Improving these both aspects requires additional working hours ultimately beating the goal why they were there in first place.

Looking back, in traditional industries like manufacturing as well as non-traditional industries like IT, increasing demands of customers, productivity standards, and subsequent improvisations make it difficult to even maintain same number of working hours forget reducing them. So, I believe the number of working hours should be constant.

While mobile phones have many advantages, a number of problems have also resulted from them or the ways in which they are used.
What are some of these problems?
What solutions can you suggest for solving these problems?

In this ever-evolving world, communication has been revolutionized thanks to mobile phones. Agreed the changes have brought the world closer, but have opened a new can of worms which, in fact, is difficult to manage. Looking at the intensity of new found problems, it is high time to take remedial actions.

Cellular phones have sucked emotions out of the relations as most of the communication is handled through these small devices, eliminating the need to talk face to face. Friends who used to knock on the doors earlier have started updating over phones, creating emotional gaps. Further, excessive usage of the device exposes the user to harmful radiations, which affect the vital organs in the body. A Recent surge in the rate of heart attacks in employees using mobiles is a warning for all of us.

To overcome such terrible consequences, one must minimize using the mobile phones and keep it for emergency measures. It can be agreed that the versatility of the device compels the user to be around it, however, avoiding social scenarios and compromising emotional values in the relationship cannot be justified. One can optimize the usage by allocating certain periods of time. Also, this way the user can ensure that radiations are affecting the body in limited ways: headphones on calls can be extremely beneficial to keep away from the effect of radiations.

Looking back, unwarranted usage of the mobile phones has led advent of unforeseen complications which have social as well as physical implications. To avoid such glitches, one must restrict usage as much as possible while devising few precautionary methods in unavoidable circumstance.

In some countries, it is usual for young people who graduate from high school to spend a year working or travelling before going to university.

What are the advantages and disadvantages for young people who decide to do this?

Advantages: get life’s calling; responsible

Disadvantage: distraction; injuries

Students taking a break before joining universities and working or travelling in this break is a widespread practice in the western world. Recently, even Indian parents have started encouraging their children to follow the same practice. While there are advantages of the trend, one may face few hindrances.

Let’s begin with advantages. By working or travelling before joining the universities students can work in the fields of their interests or visit places or people who are already in those fields, thereby gaining more knowledge about their life calling. One of my friends worked as salesman, content writer and even as secretary to a manager before finalising content writing related course in university. Moreover, these experiences of working and travelling force a person to manage their own time, money and safety. Students become more organised and responsible as they are not assisted by parents.

On the other hand, we cannot turn away from possible disadvantages. Firstly, students who take a break and start working may find it difficult to maintain their distance from monetary benefits leading to conflict between academic priorities and work related responsibilities. Even people who have travelled may find difficult to focus back on studies. Secondly, working or travelling at a young age may make students exposed to accidents or health issues. One of my batchmates met an accident which did not allow him to pursue a career in the military.

In summary, students can find out their life’s calling by deciding to work or travel. They may acquire better lifestyle as well. However, they may invite loss of interests in studies as well as physical accidents which may prove dangerous for the career.

Hindrances: obstacles, problems

Monetary: related to money

Conflict: fight

Some people think that having old people in society is a problem as they are completely dependent on their children while others believe that having senior citizen around adds value to the family.

Discuss both these views and give you opinion.

Benefits: Guidance, culture

Problems: dependency

Need to be compassionate about them as they were for you as a child

Owing to the advances in medical fields, average age of humans has transcended prior limits and so we see many elders around. While some may say that it is better to have elder generation around, others feel that they are just a burden. I feel that, having elders around is always a boon.

Elders have immense experience through their share of success and failures which help younger generation through their insights and in fact, can clinch higher peaks of success. While starting my new venture in Information Technology (IT), I consulted my grandfather who used to run a manufacturing company. Although he knew nothing about IT, he provided valuable insights into employee management which came in handy. Moreover, elders are the torchbearers of the culture and share their insights well in major events of life such as marriages.

However, some criticise the role of elders in modern homes. They advocate that seniors meddle into the daily lives of their children and grandchildren. As seniors grow old, they develop this habit of preaching their family and in fact taking their moral down. I would urge such people to look into this problem in some other ways. Probably senile instruct the generation X out of love and their willingness to help. Rather than isolating them, it is the duty of our youth to ensure that seniors are familiar with the technology and are a relevant part of a family.

Looking back it is very clear that elders help their children by through their life experiences and knowledge of cultures and traditions. Although sometimes their instructions may seem like intrusion, we can make them feel part of modern lives. Hence, I can say for sure advantages of having elders around are always more than disadvantages.

Vocabulary

Transcend: surpass, go beyond something

Boon: benefit

Clinch higher peaks of success: achieve higher success

Torchbearers: a leader

To advocate: to support

To preach: to give lecture

Senile: senior members of the society who may seem forgetful

Intrusion: disturbance

Housing and accommodation has become a major problem in many countries around the world.

What are some of the main factors that have contributed to this problem?

What can be done to help reduce the number of homeless people?

Brainstorming:

Causes: Migration to cities – better education and job – population explosion – higher demand for houses – higher costs – limited lands – Accommodation problems

Solutions: Decentralisation of opportunities

While travelling in my city Mumbai, it is hard to miss the cramped housing and ever-increasing slums. These issues creep in the cities because of multiple reasons and lead to a lack of basic facilities.  The onus to provide accommodation and basic amenities lies with the government to a great extent.

Even after hundred years of industrialization, people from villages migrate to cities in search of better prospects of education and jobs. This rapid migration surges the demand of housing and property rates. Higher demand for housing leads to a deficiency of the land while higher property rates push people to congested vicinities and hence the problems of housing. To illustrate, Pune, a city in India witnesses people migrating people all over the country as the city has developed to be a manufacturing, IT and educational hub, giving ways to unstructured growth and accommodation woes.

To overcome these obstacles, the government must take some instant steps. Firstly, the government must work on affordable housing schemes for the citizen who have already found the means in the city. Let’s take the case of Japan where the government is promoting ‘cubic feet living’, a concept which utilizes the vertical space. Secondly, it should promote the education as well as entrepreneurship in rural parts thereby reducing the current trend of migration and ultimately controlling the expanding cities.

Looking back, centralization of the industrial area as well as means of education and career are major reasons for migration and thus accommodation despairs in cities. These difficulties can be addressed primarily by decentralization of industry as well career opportunities.

Vocabulary

Cramped: uncomfortably small or restricted

Onus: responsibility

Surge: rapid increase

Vicinities: neighbourhood

Woes: problems

Despair: Problems

Child labour is a problem in many developing countries.

What are results of working at such an early age?

What can be done to avoid these problems?

Various forms of issues related to children are rising all over the world these days. One of those crucial issues is children labour. Children are made to work in all sorts of industries like shops, mining, factories, hotels etc. There are multiple reasons for child labour to exist in our modern society as well and hence it is high time we take some actions to uproot it.

Ideally, Children must have education, play and have fun; not work at some workplace against will. Their future is damaged if they earn money but do not have appropriate education as the white-collar job opportunities are shut forever without formal pedagogy. Moreover, these oppressed children lose their self-worth, resulting in aimless lives. Consequently, they may turn drug or alcohol addicts and many of them even may turn out to be lawbreakers and ruin their lives.

To overcome the curse of child labour the governments must ensure free education till 18 so that no parents or caretakers can force children into the quagmires of child labour on the pretext of lack of education fund. Agreed, there can be very few exceptions, where having youngsters is a must – films or dramas for children – we must make children as well as their caretakers aware of their rights so that no kid is harassed even as an exception.

In the end, I would like to emphasize that children should not be compelled to work as the compulsion may lead them towards darks of self-loathe and addictions. They should rather be promoted to pursue their education and awareness of their rights.

Developed nations must help under-developed or developing countries.

To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Write valid reasons and relevant examples to support your position using at least 250 words.

Answer:

In today’s world, there are many countries which are either developing or underdeveloped. They lack in important standards of living like health, education, and trade. Due to many social, economic and other kinds of reasons, they are not capable of achieving this progress on their own. Therefore, I certainly think that it is essential to get this assistance from governments of developed nations.

If developed nations take responsibility to help poorer nations, it will bring balance to the overall progress of the entire world and our planet will become a better place to live. Firstly, aids for arranging health campaigns and training camps on advanced medicine for doctors from poor countries can help us elevate the levels of healthcare in such countries. Secondly, education systems in poorer countries can be improved by training students and teachers in developed countries and providing them with better facilities. Thirdly, trade can also be increased by increasing collaboration between developed and poor countries where some hidden traditional novelties can find a niche in the world market. For many years the science in Ayurveda was untapped in Western World; now these techniques have come in quite handy in paramedicine.

On the other hand, there are few who opine that developed countries are under no obligation to help the developing ones. Yet they conveniently ignore the fact that cooperation among developed countries have helped them reach those milestones. Collaboration is essential and if such a helping hand is extended towards the underdeveloped states, they may help the developed nations back in future as we all know life is a circle.

In the end, the act of benevolence from rich countries won’t harm them rather would help restore miserable lives who are struggling for basic necessities. I would like to emphasize that the governments of rich nations must assist poorer nations.

In some countries, children have very strict rules of behavior, in other countries they are allowed to do almost anything they want. To what extent should children have to follow rules?

Write at least 250 words.

Include valid reasons and relevant examples from your knowledge and experience to back your position.

Answer:

Children are future of any society. Well nurtured and well behaved children turn into useful adults who ultimately contribute to a healthy community. Now, some countries set very strict rules for children and some provide unnecessary flexibility which may result in imbalanced thinking amongst children. In my opinion, children’s upbringing must be balanced which means they must be encouraged to see dreams and chase them along with respecting the rules.

There are disadvantages of both the extremes. To begin, if children are grown in very strict environment, curiosity rises among them for the hidden treasure when some information is not disclosed. This may deviate them from their goals. Strict rules or limitations to every act of children can build frustrations and they start disrespecting parents and the society. Prolonged restrictions result into anger and they start losing ability to think rationally because they think, every said rule is against them. These negativities lead to an angry and biased human being.

However, if children are never questioned and they are allowed to behave as they want then it may give access to unnecessary information at inappropriate age. This will lead them to make wrong decisions. For example, a teenager who decides to work in a restaurant as a waiter may deviate from his/her studies. Since they never opposed for anything, it becomes very difficult to control them at later stage. So, finally the result is imbalance in the society.

In retrospection, I think, children must be grown by revealing information at suitable stage and at the same time, they must be taught to respect the rules. Balanced attributes will ensure a child to become a useful adult for the country.

Question:

Some people believe that television programmes are of no real value for children.

How far do you agree or disagree?

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

Answer:

Television is one of rarest legacies of twentieth century that we have carried in this world of smart gadgets which are loaded with information and entertainment through thousands of channels. While children are exposed to this content all the time, least priority is allotted to evaluate about repercussions of the development.

Firstly, cartoons form main pedigree of young television viewership which exposes youngsters to foul language as well as violence resulting into children disobeying parents. Secondly, movies, songs and daily soaps paint a disoriented picture of relations, work ethics and overall life which sometimes lead to glorification of negative traits denting innocent minds for the lifetime. Thirdly, in this tender age, adolescents get easily lured by sports-events like wrestling, imitating which have has resulted into many accidents or injuries and still continues till date.

At the same time, it’s worthwhile to note that there are many informative shows, may be very rare compared other programs, on science, technology, history and art, which have potential to impact child’s future career choice, must be encouraged. In addition, sports like Cricket, Tennis and many more can motivate them to pursue for lifetime, imbibing them with its importance. However, it’s a common sight in every household that children are attracted towards the programs which have negative implications. Even parents are to be blamed for lack of guidance and monitoring on their off-springs’s television habits.

Looking back, most influential television shows impart inappropriate information and may also rob off children of their innocence. In fact, they make them biased in life choices, which is detrimental. In conclusion, current television programs are worthless for children.
