NOTE: Answer all questions.


(i) The Personality 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.

(ii) Importance of Discipline in Life:

Discipline is a metal or moral training whose fruit comes out in the form of good conduct. A man of discipline will follow the rules of conduct prescribed by the group or society to which he belongs. An undisciplined man, on the other hand, disregards the prescribed code of conduct and behaves in an objectionable way. A student who whistles in his classroom violates the established custom of listening quality to his teachers, and therefore, is guilty of indiscipline. Society expects us to behave in a particular way and if we do not do so, we are called indiscipline. In, essence, therefore, discipline is ‘obedience to rule’. A student disobeying his teachers and a soldier violating the rules of the army, both are called “undisciplined” .
The strength or weakness of a nation can be judged by the presence or absence of discipline in the normal life of its people. Free people lead a disciplined life, while slaves are wanting in discipline.

(iii) Blessing of Science:

We are living in the most advanced age of science. It is called space age. In the present world torn with nationalism and divided into blocks, science is the only common denominator. Where ever we go, we carry the torch of science in our hands in order to light our path Science, thus may be called religion of modem world.
The aim of science is to reduce human pains and sufferings. Machines have saved human labour and – time. The most wonderful invention of science is computer, the machine brain.
Electricity works like Aladdin’s lamp. It is the most important source of energy. It light our homes and cities, it turns the wheel of industries. It provides us with fun and amusements. Business center, hospitals and offices all are in debt to electricity. It provides compact and ease during extreme weathers.
The various easy, cheap and quick means of communication like Radio, Wireless Telephone, T.V. Cables, Ships and Aeroplane, have brought the distant corners of world closer. We can thus say that world has shrunken. Science has achieved miracles in the field of medicine particularly surgery like plastic and neuron surgery. Now, even internal organs heart, lungs, kidneys can be operated and replaced.
Nuclear energy has brought about radical changes in the field of agriculture, industries and treatment of dangerous diseases. Science has added to human comforts and happiness.
Science is a fairy as well as fury. Its invention is being greatly misused. The worst misuse of science is in wars. Was has become more cruel & destructive. The next three-fold warfare – mechanical, chemical and biological shall spell end of the world.
.science has replaced human labour. The machines have become our master instead of being our servants. We are completely at their mercy. More human lives have been lost in mechanical accidents than all – we sum total of lives lost in the total battles and wars fought on the surface of globe (UNO Report).
In concluslcn, we must not misuse scientific inventions. Science has made us more materialistic. Only change of mental attitudes and restoration of religion can save the world.

(iv) Merits and Demerits of T.V:

Television is now common in big cities. Every second house has a television in it.
There are certain advantages and disadvantages of watching the different programs. T.V. is itself not a good or bad thing, but the way we use it make it good or bad for us.
As regards advantages, T.V. can be used as an educational and informative thing. It telecasts educational programmes of Allama Iqbal Open University, Science teaching and experiments and other programmes giving knowledge. The T.V keeps as aware of the news of our country and the world. It telecasts sports programmes, live matches and discussions. So there is a lot to learn from television.
As regards entertainment the P.T.V. telecasts good dramas and music programmes.
One cannot go on learning and learning without entertainment, But the disadvantage comes when young people sit late in the night watching obscene programmes through the dish antenna. Some people watch bad movies through VCR and videocassettes. This is wrong. This spoils the character, thoughts and health.
The parents need to have on eye on the activities and interests of their teen-age children. We must keep a balance between learning and good entertainment. This is very essential for our good future.
