(i) My aim in life

My aim is to become a soldier and serve the country. I hear about our soldiers defending our country at the time of war. I feel like going to the borders to fight for my mother-land. The time of death is fixed and never comes before. 50 there should be no fear of dying. Moreover, a soldier lives with honour and fame and his death is with dignity. I will work hard to get a good position in the examinations, so that I may easily. be selected as a candidate. I will try to keep my health and body, fit to be able be selected easily.
When I become a soldier I will fulfill my duties willingly and with zeal. On the boarders, obedience discipline and intention to serve the country is the motto of every soldier, & I too will perform my duties in the best possible-way. I believe that life laid for the country will not only give honour but a reward of peaceful life in the next world. That is my aim in life.

One day we decided to go for a picnic at the seaside. Myself and three friends of mine, started at 3 p.m. and went to Hawks Bay. A cool breeze was blowing. We started walking leisurely along the seashore. The cool, fresh air was very pleasant. After a very long walk, we sat down on the sand. We ordered some snacks from the nearby small hotel. We enjoyed the eatables in the fresh atmosphere. One of us started telling jokes. We did not know how time passed on so quickly. It was sunset, by then. We decided to return. While coming home we had nice tea at a good hotel and came home, very happy, I will remember this picnic for days.

(iii) Misuse of Mobile Phone

Now-a-days every next man is having a mobile phone. Apart from its facility in making necessary contacts with parents and relations, its misuse has become a nuisance.
It is seen that young people have forgotten all the lessons of good manners and decent and respectable behaviour. Young boys are seen troubling girls on phone. They try to make friends have cheap talk on phone.
If discouraged some try to threaten the person they try to talk to. Moreover crimes and terrorism have increased because of easy contacts of wicked people with each other on mobile phone. And now mobile phone is encouraging unfair means during the examination by sending messages of answers and other methods.
I feel that the misuse has completely over shadowed the advantages of mobile phone.
So the authorities need to have a secret watch on the misuse and punish the culprits.

(iv) The person which I like most

A national hero is a person who has done some great work of historical importance for the nation.
Our national hero and my favourite personality can rightly be Dr. Mohammed Iqbal, the man who for the first time presented the idea of a separate Muslim state for the Muslims of the undivided India. He was born in Sialkot on 9th November 1877. He received his early education in Sialkot and later, passed M.A. from Punjab University. He received a Law degree from England and PhD from Munich University. He was a great poet and his poetry is actually a preaching of Islam. He inspired the Muslim youth by his poetry and awakened the Muslims from their sleep of ignorance and carelessness.
He presented the demand for a separate homeland for Muslims. He worked for this cause throughout his life. It is he who urged Quaid-e-Azam Mohammed Ali Jinnah to come back to India from England and work for the cause of Muslims.
After a long struggle, Pakistan came into existence but Dr. Iqbal did not live to see the creation of a Muslim state, his dream to come true. His poetry is guidance for a successful and zealous life as a Muslim.
