Essay: The Pleasure of College Life

College life is, no doubt, the golden period of a student's life .The knowledge gained, the
opportunities availed and the friendship made during the stay at college go a long, way in
determining the future life and career of a young man.You will often find grown-up people
mentioning the memories of their college days with great pleasure ,pride or regret .College life
ushers in a completely new stage in the educational career of a young student.As compared
with school life,it is a life of liberty,self-respect and confidence .The college students gets
freedom from the rod of the school teacher and his authoritative attitude.He feels happy to
find his college teachers quite friendly and persuasive.His feelings of self-respect ate properly
recognized and he is encouraged to depend upon himself.For the first time in his life,he feels
his own importance at home as well as at college ,and his opinions and decisions are given
due weight.He is no longer regarded a child who must be forced to do certain things
considered useful for him.He may attend the class or stay away for a day,there is no fear of
physical punishment of degrading treatment at the bands of his teacher.

College life is also pleasurable for providing a large company of like minded young men
of the same age and of similar interests.You can have the acquaintance of a large number of
college fellows,belonging to different families,having different temperaments,qualities,
habits,manners,etc.You are free to make new friends, and to learn and adopt what is
good in others.

That is why a student becomes more polished after entering the college so that his dress
and manners improve remarkable.His timidity shyness disappear,and he starts asserting
himself.Such healthy influences on the mind of a young man prove decisive in
moulding his future career and outlook of life.

He is learning all the time ,not only from books but also from his teachers and
fellow -students .If he happens to stay-at college hostel,then this process of self education
becomes more wide and deep.

College life has innumerable pleasures and facilities in the form of games,sports and
many other extra-curricular activities.These things have great value in the training of a
student's character and the development of his natural qualities of head and heart.There is a
big library having a large variety of books on different fields of knowledge.The student can
enrich his mind by borrowing books of his taste from the college library.Then there are af
number of societies of various subjects,which arrange regular meeting ,functions and
educational trips to promote the knowledge of students and to create new areas of awareness
in them.He is free to take part in any indoor or outdoor game if he has time to play in the
evening.The college has a dramatic club,a debating society,a photographic society,etc .To
promote his different inborn talents.He can become the Editor of college Magazine and
can contribute various kinds of articles,poems ,humorous essays short stories,etc.

Every college has a students union which holds election to its various offices every year.
It serves as a platform for the political training of the students,and to produce in them the
qualities of leadership.

In short,college life is full of pleasures,facilities ,possibilities and opportunities of
progress which cannot be available to a young man in his life when he enters practical
life.But all these things are of value to those who are willing to participate and benefit instead
of hesitating and staying away and aloof.

Essay:Our National Hero or My Favourite Leader

Every nation has got its own heroes .They are men of exceptional qualities sand strength
of character.They perform wonderful achievements which benefit the whole nation and the
whole mankind.A National hero may be a brave soldier, a great poet, a scientist of a
politician.

Our most important national hero is the Quaid-i- Azam.I like him very much ,because he
has greatly impressed me by his honesty ,intelligence and hark struggle.He is the great man
who won Pakistan for us and is called its founder .We are highly obliged to him because he
saved us from the slavery of the Hindus.His real mane was Muhammad Ali Jinnah.He was
born to a business man of Karachi.He was very intelligent, serious, and responsible person
from the very beginning of his life .After completing his education in the country,he
proceeded to England for higher education in Law.After returning home ,he
started his practice as a lawyer at Bombay .At the same time he began to take interest in the political
affairs.It was the time of Freedom Movement against the British Rule over India .In the
beginning,Quaid-i-Azam joinde the Indian National Congress and worked for Hindu Muslims
Unity.But soon he realized that the Hindus were prejudiced against the Muslims and
were not prepared to give them their basic rights.He felt that the Hindus and Muslims could
never live together peacefully in the same country .He was so wise politically that
he believed that freedom of India would be meaning less for the Muslims because they
would get Hindu rulers in place of the English rulers.

Therefore Quaid-i-Azam left Indian Congress and joined Indian Muslim League.All
the Muslims leaders like Dr.Iqbat ,Liaqat Ali ,Maulana Shaukat Ali and others supported him
and made him their leader.He was superior to all of them in political sagacity and strength of
character.He struggled hard and worked day and night to get a separate country for the Indian
Muslims.He had to face the united opposition of the Hindus,the British leaders and some of j
the Muslim scholars.His enemies tried their best to purchase him and to put him to death ,but
they could mot succeed .He was an old man suffering from a dangerous disease which was
making him weak day by day .The doctors advised him again and again to take complete res,
but he did not care for his own life for the sake of the fulfillment of his mission of life.

At last he succeeded in achieving Pakistan on fourteenth August, 1947.It was no less
than a miracle to get such a biggest Islamic country of the world without fighting any
battle and without having any army.Unfortunately Quaid-i-Azam could not live longer to
guide his nation and to strengthen his new found state.After one year of independence ,he
died on 11th of September 1948.He was buried in Karachi.But in reality,he lives in the
hearts of all the Pakistanis.So long as this country exists on the map of the world ,the
generation of Muslims will to on paying homage to this great man .Actually ,he was a
martyr who sacrificed his own life to give political independence to the Muslims of
India and their children.Great men like him are rarely born in history.

Essay: My Favourite Poet or Allama Muhammad Iqbal

poetry is the art of expressing one's feelings and ideas in an impressive manner.It
provides us pleasures besides improving our awareness of life.The poet is a man of deep
insight and sensitive mature.He can make us see and feel in a wonderful new way .I am also
fond of reading poetry ,especially urdu and punjabi poetry .Allama Muhammad Iqbal is
my favourite poet.He is undoubtedly the greatest Muslim poet this century.His poetry is
read and appreciated not only in Pakistan and India but also in Iran and many European
countries.His books have been translated into English,German and many other languages of
the world.He was not only a poet but also a great thinker.In fact, he adopted poetry as a
means of conveying his ideas.That is why he called a philosopher poet.Unlike other
urdu poets he is not concerned with love and female beauty.He gets poetic inspiration from
his beautiful ideas.That is why he called a philosopher poet.Unlike other
Urdu poets he is not concerned with love and female beauty.He gets poetic inspiration from
his beautiful ideas.Islam and Muslims civilization form the central theme of his poetry.He is
deeply convinced that Islam is the best system of life that can make the Muslims glorious once
again.he is pained to know that the Muslims have sunk into degradation by giving up their
own golden principles and traditions and by blindly imitation the Western civilization.In his
poems,Dr Iqbal exhorts the Muslims to come back to the fold of Islam and to
regain their lost prestige.I like his poetry which gives us the message of hope and
struggle of life .His concept of "Khudi" is appreciated by the scholars all over the world.

A number of factors contributed their part in shaping the out look of Dr. Iqbal and
developing his poetic genius.He was born at Sialkot in a Kashmiri family in 1877.His father
Sheikh Nur Muhammad was a mystic from whom Iqbal inherited his deep love of religion.
When he was a student at Murray College,Sialkot,he had the good fortune of getting the
guidance of a capable teacher like Syed Mir. Hassan.He created in Iqbal a genuine love for
Arabic,Persian and Islamiat.When he came to Government College Lahore for higher
Education,he got the tutorship of Dr.Arnold who inspired in him a love of philosophy.He got
his Master's Degree in Philosophy in 1899 and worked as a Professor of Philosophy for some
time.
In 1905 ,he proceeded to Europe for higher studies in Philosophy and Law .He obtained
his Ph.D in philosophy from Germany and his degree of Bar-at-Law in 1908.On his return
to India,Dr.Iqbal started his legal practice but gave it up soon.His real interest lay in poetry
and the plight of India Muslims.He started writing poems in Urdu as well as
Persian .His poetic faculty blossomed forth and he produced such memorable works as
Band-i-Dara,,Bal-i-Gibril,Zaboor-e'Ajam,Zarb-v-Kaleem,Asrar-i-Khudi and
payame-Mashriq.All of them are recognized as world classics.He won great fame and honour
in his life time .Prominent persons from all walks of life came to him to seek guidance and to
gel his valuable opinion.

Dr.Iqbal's stay at Europe proved to be of immense importance in influencing his mind.
He became aware of the current political and philosophical development in the world .He also
developed his hatred for nationalism,materialism and imperialism.All these thoughts colour
his poetry.Dr.Iqbal also proved to be the originator of the idea of Pakistan.It was he who for
the first time put forward the demand for a separate Muslim State within India in his famous
presidential address at the Allah Abad session of the All India Muslim League.Unfortunately
he could not live to seq the emergence of Pakistan.He died in 1938 nine years before the
creation of Pakistan.So he is remembered and honoured not only as a great poet but also as
the founder of Pakistan Ideology .Many of his verses contain deep wisdom and have become
proverbial.

Every teacher ,speaker and scholar in our country loves to quote Dr.Iqbal.He is a
favourite poet of almost all the students in Pakistan.

Essay: Importance of Games And Sports

Games and sports have an important role in the life of a young man.They are those
activities which we pursue for the sake of pleasure.They are different from work or daily
duties which we perform to earn money.There is a slight different between games and
sports.Sports and Games have an importance in education. Games are played by groups of players or teams,such as football, cricket, hokey,etc
On the other hand, sports are played by players in their individual capacity, such as races,
jumps, athletics,etc.

Source of recreation:

Games and sports are a very cheap and popular source of recreating
one self.Recreation is an important requirement of human life.No human being can afford to
remain busy day and night earning money like a machine .Over work has adverse effect on
human health.Such a man becomes aged too soon.Human life becomes dull and boring .
Every worker needs some leisure after performing his daily duties.He must get time to feel
free and enjoy himself in any way he likes.There are people who want to go to sleep or
gossip,wander or play cards or enjoy music during leisure.But is not a healthy use of this
time.If a man remains sitting at his house ,he will go on thinking about his tired mind and
body his problems and responsibilities.His mind will not get relief from the burden of painful
worries .The best thing for him would be to go out and play some game.It will refresh his
tired mind and body.When a man is busy in playing come game or witnessing some match, he
is lost in its excitement.He forgers his painful thoughts for the time being, and this is very
useful for mental health.

Useful for health:

Games are also useful for physical health.It is said that human body is
just like a machine .If a machine remain out of action for a long time ,it becomes rusted.
Similarly if human body is kept idle and inactive for a long time, it also gets out of
order.An idle person falls an easy prey to diseases.In fact ,motion is the law of life.All those
things of nature which are moving and struggling are alive.Therefore,kind of physical
exertion is essential for keeping human body fit and smart .That is why players look more
young and energetic than the other people.They can face the attack of diseases bravely.The
need of physical exercise has become very great in the modern age.Science has made our
lives very comfortable and lethargic.People do not like even to walk over a short
distance.They take rich food but have nothing to exert to digest it .There fore , most of the rich
people suffer from fatness, gas-trouble ,blood-pressure diabetes heart trouble,etc.All these
diseases are the result of over-eating and and physical illness.Therefore,we must play come game
to keep ourselves physically fit and health.

Personality Development:

Games also play an important part in the development of
human personality.They produce the qualities of leadership and self-confidence in young
men .They learn practical wisdom and such values of life which cannot be learnt from books
and class room lectures.Every game is played according to certain rules.No player can be
careless or selfish .Therefore, games provides us training in discipline ,regularity ,punctuality
and co-operation.A player also learns patience and the quality of tolerance.He
learns how to tolerate unpleasant situations ,insulting remarks and foolish behavior.
He develops sport man's spirit and becomes large hearted and broad-minded.This quality
proves useful in his practical life as a government officer of businessman.A player gets more
chances to mix up with young men of different minds ,interests, habits and manners.He
learns how to deal with them and how to adopt their good qualities .Therefore ,games provide
practical training in human under standing and human relation, it is this reason that sports
men are preferred for army and police services.

INTERNATIONAL IMPORTANCE OF GAMES:

Games are no linger a matter of
private interest of young man.They are encouraged and patronized by the government.Games
and sports have assumed international importance .Every year competitions in different games
are held in different parts of the world, such as Olympics, World Games,Asian Games,
Champion's Hockey, etc. But players and team of different countries take part in these
international competitions.They compete with one another and earn fame and
honour for themselves and their countries.That is why a good player is a good
ambassador of his country.He makes the name of his country famous all over the world
like Imran Khan and Jahangir Khan of Pakistan.The players are also called the ambassadors
of peace, because they help in promoting the feelings of friendship and co-operation in the
world.The nation that love to play together do not like to fight against each other.

In short games and sports have great significance for the persons as well as nation.But it
is very regrettable that they have not been given proper importance in our system of
education.It is true that all kinds of games are player in our school ,college and
universities.But majority of the students of the students consider it wastage of time to play game this is
because there is no credit for being a player .If a students is a player ,no mention of it is made
on it is degree.He gets employment mainly in view of his academic performance.Therefore ,
all of our students become book worms ,burying themselves in books and
mugging important questions from the examination point or view.This has had effect on their
health and training of character.This situation can be reformed if played is made compulsory
for all students and there are fixed marks for being a sports man .This will improve our
national health and will save our students from aimless wandering and taking part in
unhealthy activities.

Essay: "Life in College Hostel"

The college hostel is s state where people live in perfect harmony .students coming from
different parts of the country or a province forget all their differences and begin to live like
members of a vast family.All distinctions of birth are forgotten.The poorest boy feels
equal to the richest boy.Friendships which would last a life time are made here.All boys are
knit by bonds of love.Even if there are differences among boys,they are expressed in a very
healthy manner.

Hostel is an essential part of a college or university .It is usually located within the
campus of the educational institutions .It provides facilities of lodging and
messing to those students whose parents live in distant towns and
villages.Hostel life is ,no doubt,the most pleasurable period of a student' life.It has its deep
impressions and memories which cannot be forgotten during the rest of life.Hostel,life also
has its own educative value .It plays an important role in the development of character and
personality of the student.

Hostel life provides many facilities to a student which cannot be available to him at the
house of his parents.Since the hostel is situated within the college campus,his time on
coming and going to college daily is saved.In every hostel,there is a Reading Room,
containing many daily,newspapers and magazines of different kinds.He can increase his
general knowledge by means of this rich informative reading material.He can cultivate a habit
of reading and gets an opportunity to increase his awareness of life which can be very useful
in his after-life .similarly ,every hostel has a big Common Room,where students assemble
daily in the evening and take part in various indoor games like Table Tennis,Chess,
Cards game ,Carrom board Luddo,etc .Now a days the addition of T.V sets has multiplied the
charm of hostel common rooms.There are annual contests and competitions among the
hostel students in various games,making of speeches,debates,recitation of Holy Quran
and singing songs.Prizes are given to those who excell others in different fields and activities.

Hostel life gives practical training tho a student in his mental,moral and spiritual
development.He has to observe the rules made by the students themselves and the decisions
taken unanimously .All the students take meals together at the fixed times.They
have fixed hours for studying ,playing ,going to sleep and getting up in the morning.Nobody
can leave hostel without the permission of the superintendent;nor is he allowed to stay out
late at night.Therefore hostel life gives practical lessons in punctuality,regularity and
discipline.These qualities and good habits prove very useful in his practical life in the future.
Hostel life also inculcates self-confidence in a student and produces in him the qualities of
leadership and self-help.He has to lead life without the aid of his parents as well as
servants.Every hostel students has to make his own bed,polish his own shoes,press his own
clothes and manage his own daily affairs.The students are allowed to elect every month a
mess Manager out of themselves to decide what to eat and how much to spend.

The most important advantage of hostel life is the opportunity of free communion and
intimate relationship between young men of the same age.They belong to different
families ,having different habits,manners and views of life.This provides a good chance for
a hostel student to learn from others and to pick their good habits and manners.It also enables
him to have a good understanding of different human nature and human minds.The student
learns to understand his room-mates and to behave with them in a befitting manner.
This practical training in human understanding proves very helpful to him when be becomes
an officer or a business man.

There is the other side of the picture also.Hostel life also has certain demerits and
disadvantages.it is so expensive that most of the parents cannot afford it and refuse to give
higher education to their sons and daughters.A hostel student cannot enjoy the freedom and
privacy which he can have at the house of his parents.It is true that he is free to spend his
time and money in any way he likes.Yet he feels disturbed by the presence of different
minded students in his room.He cannot study or sleep peacefully according to his free will.
Since the students are living away from the control of parents,they may adopt bad society and
waste their time and money in visiting hotels,cinema house,etc.In spite of these
disadvantages ,the educative value of hostel life is undeniable.Most of the rich parents like to
send their children to residential institutions.The qualities developed during hostel life and
the friendship made here prove life-long and very valuable.
