3. Write an essay of 120 to 150 words on anyone of the following topics:

i. An Exiting Cricket Match
ii, Merits of a Mobile Phone
iii. A picnic on Hawksbay
iv. Science in the service of man 

i. An Exiting Cricket Match

The most exciting cricket match of World Cup 2015was the Semi final match between New Zealand and South Africa.

The last 10 minutes of this match were very thrilling. Fortunes fluctuated from one side to the other. South Africa after winning the toss had batted first and scored 281 runs for 5 wickets in 43 over. The rain came down and stopped the play.

Then it was decided by Duck-Worth and Leuois Method that if New Zealand scores 298 runs in 43 overs they will win.

In .the last 10 minutes the match was very exciting. South Africa bowled well and put their full efforts to restrict New Zealand. To achieve the target. Vittory and Grant Elliot were the last pair. They had to score 12 runs off the last over, suddenly Elliot skied a ball, but the catch was not caught due to a hard collide between Farhan Behardien and J.P Duminy. Behardien was aiming correctly and was about to catch the ball when J.P Duminy came running to catch the ball and both dashed with each other and the ball ·fell to the ground. Vittory scored a boundary in the last over, 6 runs were needed for win and South Africa put all their efforts to restrict New Zealand from this. Now 2 balls were left and 5 runs were needed. Then Elliot scored a six on the 2nd last ball and achieved the target. It was a very spectacular finish and at last New Zealand won the match, one ball earlier.

ii. Merits of a Mobile Phone:

Mobile phone is a useful invention and has many merits. A simple mobile phone enables to talk with relatives and friends when we are out of home. It provides the facility of sending messages and other information at a low cost than that on talking. The cellular network also gives different information and important news, at a low payment. The most important merit of a cell phone is that whenever a person is in trouble of has an emergency, he can contact with his relatives for help. He can also inform police for help.

The modern mobile phone, gives the facility of taking picture, and gathering other information. This is useful in detecting crimes.

The above are all the merits of a mobile phone. But if used with bad intentions a mobile phone is a very harmful invention. Criminals and terrorists use mobile phone for their bad acts. Every invention of science has its merits it used for welfare and peace. But if used for creating trouble it is a curse.

iii. A picnic on Hawksbay:

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.

iv. Science in the service of man:

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 modern 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 conclusion, 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.
