Hostel Life

Every school or college has a hostel attached to it. The students who come from distant places put up at the hostel. Hostel-life has certain advantages. In a hostel a student has to Live for years together with other students belonging to different provinces and religious groups. This contact drives away his religious prejudices and provincial feelings and thereby broadens his mental horizon. He feels one with others. This life thus serves the cause of national unity. Hostel-life teaches a student such virtues as self-reliance, regularity and dignity of labour. In a hostel a student has to get up before the bell rings; he has to report himself for his breakfast or meals when the bell goes.. He has to do many things himself. He has to polish his own shoes, make his own bed, dust his own table and wash his own clothes. Hostel-life has its dark side too. In a hostel a student is free from parental control. If he is not responsible enough, he may neglect his studies and waste his time on senseless activities. He may even choose evil company and go to the dogs.
Students who give themselves seriously to their studies are often taunted and ragged. There are also students who suffer from nostalgia. This home-sickness tells upon their studies.

Hostel life has its advantages too. It gives us habits of self-help. We have take care of our personal belongings ourselves, make up our own beds and
under strict control from morning to night. These are habits which I am sure will stand me in good stead in my future life.

The hostels are the good training grounds for students. If the disadvantages are removed they can do a lot in building up healthy citizens.


2. Write a paragraph about a historical place.

                                     The Tajmahal                           
One of the seven wonders of the world the Tajmahal is a marvel of architecture. Built in Agra by Shah Jahan (a Mughal emperor) in memory of his beloved wife, Mamtaj. It represents the highest excellence of the ‘Barokh’ skill. Its nonpareil beauty has stirred
poetic imagination down the ages. Rabindranath Tagore has described it as a drop of tears, glittering on the cheek of time”. The Tajmahal was constructed over the grave of Mamtaj after her death in 1631. It took 22 years to build it and cost about 3 crore rupees. Its chief architect was master Isha. The whole structure is a wonderful instance of Indo-Persian art and bears no marks of Western architecture. The Tajmahal is situated on the sacred Jamuna. The main structure stands on a platform on each of the four corners of which there is a minaret. The design of the minarets was done by a Byzantian architect, Ismail Khan Rumi. The main path leading to the main
building is flanked by cypress trees looking like so many sentinels. The Taj is surrounded by a beautiful garden. The Tajmahal made of white marble presents a celestial sight on a cloudless full-moon night, and thousand of tourists come to Agra to see this wonderful sight. The reflection of the mausoleum
with its majestic minarets on the waters of the Jamuna is a sight “to dream of, not to tell”. Shah Jahan whose love the Taj immortalizes also lies in eternal sleep in it beside his love.
