Short Paragraph on Study of Geography

Geography is the science which deals with the earth, its form and shape, its regions, climates, seasons, products, people, and trade. It is a very useful study. It helps us to know where particular things grow and why, which countries manufacture which things, and what special advantages they possess. We know the great markets of the world, also. We know the mineral and vegetable products of the country, and how they are and may be carried to other countries. England has coal and iron mines very near each other, and hence, is in a very favourable condition for starting mills and factories. Pakistan is a country of great rivers and forests, and has a rich soil, and is, therefore, naturally best suited for, agriculture. A knowledge of the natural resources of a country helps its people to develop their industries on lines, in which they have greater chances of success. The material prosperity and economic wellbeing of a nation is greatly promoted by a right knowledge of their geographica

Short Paragraph on Study of History

History is teaching philosophy by example. The study of this subject is very important for national progress. It is the record of the past achievements of mankind, and by studying it, we can understand why and how nations rise and fall. The progress of a nation is continuous: the present is the fruit of the past, and the future will be what we make it. Knowledge of the past will help us in understanding the present. It will tell us about the particular inclinations of a nation, its character, its chief merits and demerits, and the circumstances. under which they have been developed. History tells us that Greece and Rome were once great nations. We know that the British people, who were uncivilized in those days, have now risen to eminence, and those nations of antiquity have decayed. The Mughals conquered India and founded a great empire here, but their power and glory have long faded away, and we know the causes of their rise and fall. They were virile people, full of religious zeal,

Short Paragraph on Education (530 Words)

Education in its widest sense means the unfolding and development of the powers that lie in an inactive state in man. In this sense it embraces intellectual education or the formation of character by the development of such moral qualities as truthfulness, honesty and the like, and physical education or the culture of physical strength. Education in the narrow sense of literary education, that is to say, studying in schools and colleges and passing university examinations, is not education proper; it is at best only an imperfect education. Education which includes within its scope all the above three classes is real education. The aim and standard of education vary considerably with time, place and circumstances. The ancient Greeks looked upon military training as the best form of education, the Romans. regarded education to mean the training which was imparted to them to teach the duties of a citizen, while with the ancient Pakistani education meant the creation of a hand of selfless

Short Paragraph on Bravery (550 Words)

Bravery can be classified into two kinds-real bravery and false bravery. One kind of false bravery arises from ignorance of danger. If an infant plays with a cobra, it would be absolutely free. from fear, and would do what brave men would fear to do; but we ought not to call it bravery, for it has no appreciation of the danger. Yet such fearlessness is often mistaken for real bravery. If the want of recognition of danger is due to intoxication, the quality of bravery is sometimes called Dutch courage, because the drink that was served out to troops before an attack was usually Dutch rum. Another spurious form of courage is actually due to fear, as when a soldier stands his ground in a battle, because he fears the punishment which will be inflicted on him if he runs away. In such cases thể stronger fear overcomes the weaker fear, and surely the man who is actuated by any kind of fear cannot be said to be displaying bravery because it has its own virtues. What is true courage? Now we con

Short Paragraph on Temperance (390 Words)

Temperance means moderation in eating and drinking, but the word is now generally applied to abstention from the use of intoxicating things like liquor, heroin, opium, bhang, charas, etc. The use of intoxicants undermines the constitution; it såps vitality. Men are tempted by the temporary exhilaration of spirits which the use of intoxicants produces, but they forget that this short-lived pleasure will leave them much weaker than before. Alcohol is poison, why should we knowingly introduce poison into our bodies? These liquors are absolute of no use, they are very dangerous enemies of our health and vigor. The loss of wealth is enormous, and drunkards are generally poor, and make those who depend upon them very miserable. We have seen rich men, very healthy and strong, reduced by this evil habit abject poverty. A drunkard’s capacity for work is greatly impaired. It has been ascertained that the majority of crimes committed in civilized countries are due to intoxication, and lunatic asy

Short Paragraph on Courage (350 Words)

Courage does not mean merely physical bravery, it means, also, the moral strength which enables a man to do the right thing. Physical courage is good and useful, as it helps man to overcome difficulties, bear hardships, and do laborious work, but moral courage is a higher form of courage, and is much more noble. A moral coward will not do the right thing, because he is afraid of the ridicule of others. It is easy to say ‘yes’ to everything, but it requires a very strong mind to say ‘no,’ when one is really convinced that the thing is wrong. Young men, especially, ruin themselves for lack of moral courage to resist evil. How many of them live beyond their means simply to follow fashion! How many neglect their studies for fear of being called ‘unsocial bookworms!’ Luther and other great refórmers would not have achieved the success that they did achieve, if they had weakly yielded to the threats of their opponents who were, perhaps, more powerful than themselves.[the_ad id=”17141″] Refor

Short Paragraph on Politeness (500 Words)

Politeness is nothing but good manners. Behaving with others, not rudely or harshly, but in a courteous manner, be the person a wealthy man or a street beggar, is politeness. A readiness to oblige others by doing small acts of courtesy is the essential factor of this quality. One who is lacking in this quality and is unwilling to do a good turn to another, however trifling it might be, is guilty of rudeness, which is just the opposite of politeness. If we are asked for some information by a person, who is badly in need of it, it should be our duty to help him by supplying him with the required information if possible. Even if we cannot supply him with the information, we should not turn our backs upon him rudely, but should tell him courteously that we are not in a position to help him. This is the essence of politeness. Politeness presupposes the qualities of modesty and humility. To be polite, it is essential that one should oneself be modest. One who has a high notion of one’s own s

Short Paragraph on Equality (600 Words)

Equality is a vital democratic ideal like liberty. If liberty is one pillar of democracy, equality is its second pillar. But what is equality? Just as liberty is sometimes understood in the sense of unrestrained freedom, equality is interpreted as identity of treatment and of reward. Some claimants of equality assert that all men are born equal and should be treated equally. The ‘American Declaration of Independence (1776) asserts: “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal…..” But nature has not created all men equal. All men are not born equal and equality. does not imply identical treatment. Men differ in their health, intelligence, capacities and aptitudes. Some persons may be interested in science, while others may have an aptitude for literature. Some may like to be engineers, while others may desire to be manual workers. Then, how can all of them be treated in the same manner? They need different conditions for the development of their potentialities

Short Paragraph on Vulgarity (400 Words)

Vulgarity can be taken in terms of an obscene and uncalled-for show of some persons body or the show of ill and unhealthy tastes. But now this term has acquired a wider meaning if we compare it with the meaning it had acquired previously. Formerly, the word vulgarity was confined to the low, mean and base activities hut nowadays, vulgar people enjoy a great respect and so-called honor in our society. It is a term which is now applied, not only to coarseness and familiarity in speech and manners, but also to pretensions of various types. Sometimes vulgarity is shown by a prominent display of wealth. A story is related of a French corn-merchant who had realized an enormous fortune. He invited a stranger to a family party. The manners of everyone present were irreproachable. Such a display was unnecessary, and therefore vulgar. The display is not confined to the wealthy.[the_ad id=”17141″] A story of a lump of the crystal is also there, which thought it would be mistaken for gold because

Short Paragraph on Loyalty (550 Words)

The term loyalty has widely been misinterpreted through the ages especially at the present times. By derivation, loyalty means fidelity to law but to a king. It is not difficult to see how this change of meaning was brought about. In old times, before the growth of republican ideas had begun to oppose the doctrine of divine right, the sovereign was regarded as the embodiment of law, and devotion to him was therefore called loyalty. But as time went on and new political opinions spread among the nations of the earth, it became apparent that there might be a conflict between devotion to the kind and devotion to the laws. This was conspicuously the case in England at the time of the Great Rebellion, when those who rebelled against the king were moved to, do so by regard for the law of England, which, as they thought, had been violated by Charles I. Many of the loyalists on the contrary, cared little for the law and constitution, and were animated by personal devotion to their kings, for w

Short Paragraph on Gambling (400 Words)

Of all vices, which modern civilization has encouraged, or at least has failed to check, gambling is the worst. It has existed from very old times, and it still flourishing to a very alarming extent in the world in various forms. Lotteries, betting at horseraces, fortune wheels, roulettes, various games of cards, dice throwing and so on, in fact, any uncertain future event may be a fit subject to gamble about. In Pakistan, people gamble even about rain, and Satta gambling has become very common. As explained at this slots portal , even the new comers are learning tactics from various sites and are getting addicted to online gambling. Gambling has its root in the weakness of human nature. Everyone tries to make fortune, but the right way of honest labor. is very long and tedious and gambling is a shortcut to it. But shortcuts are not always safe, and gambling is the most doubtful, nay, the most dangerous road to prosperity.[the_ad id=”17141″] No gambler has ever been known to prosper,

Short Paragraph on Perseverance (430 Words)

Steadfastness or perseverance is very essential for success in life. With courage and a strong determination, men of mediocre powers have done great things. ‘A rolling stone gathers no moss,’ and a man who sticks at nothing, who tries one thing now, and another at another time, and perseveres in neither, can never succeed. Men who persevered have overcome great obstacles which at first sight seemed insurmountable. Napoleon, when he was told that the Alps stood in his way, said, There shall be no Alps, and he did cross them. Perseverance never fails of its reward. If we strive with a will, success will surely be ours. We should choose our work in life after great care, but when we have once chosen it, nothing should deter us from accomplishing it. There are numerous examples of men who have risen to greatness with perseverance. Demosthenes, the great Greek orator, overcame his defeat of stammering by putting pebbles in his mouth, and by practicing public speaking. Perseverance has great

Short Paragraph on Truthfulness (350 Words)

Truthfulness consists in stating a fact as it is. It is a moral virtue which should be very carefully cultivated. There is no religion higher than truth. It is a cardinal virtue, without which other virtues cannot subsist. This habit should be formed early in childhood. A child is by nature truthful, but we teach him to conceal and to pervert truth. A liar is never believed. He loses the confidence of his friends, and if he is a shopkeeper, he loses his customers. Everyone likes the man on whom he may be able to depend, but we can never depend on a liar. Liars think themselves very clever, when they succeed in deceiving others.[the_ad id=”17141″] We must always speak the truth, but if a truth is bitter, and may cause unnecessary offence to another, we had better remain silent, unless it be our duty to speak it out. We should, however, on no account speak an untruth merely to please others. Even a harmless lie’ or an innocent untruth is bad. Half truths, in which we do not speak out the

Short Paragraph on Charity (350 Words)

The word Charity is generally used in the sense of almsgiving, but it has a broader significance. It means liberalmindedness, and giving money to relieve the distress of the poor people is only one form in which we can show it. We should always be charitable towards others, viz., should show toleration for others’ views and consult their interests. It should be borne in mind that there are other views than ours and that ours need not necessarily be the right ones. The difference of opinion is quite natural and must be tolerated, especially in matters of religion. Religious antagonism arises from narrow-mindedness. Every man thinks that he is the chosen one of God, and others are all in the dark. This is wrong. Charity should make us sympathetic towards others. We should learn to put ourselves in the position of those whom we criticize. We must take a broad view of things, and remember that others have as much right to live as we have. We should avoid giving unnecessary offense to other

Short Paragraph on Good Manners (350 Words)

“Manners maketh man” is a very popular saying. By manners, we mean proper and respectful behavior towards all with whom we come in contact. Politeness is the essence of good manners. With it, we can win the favour and confidence of others. Good manners are a key to success in life. Proper dress, neat and tidy, not costly and showy, counts for much. An ill-dressed and a shabbily dressed man at once by his appearance creates a bad impression about himself. If he is so careless about his dress, how can he he depended upon in the discharge of his duties in the office or the workshop? We should he respectful to our inferiors and subordinates. Sweet words cost nothing, but buy everything. Good manners endear us to others. A soft answer turneth away wrath, and a kind word uttered in time would save us many troubles. Civility and tact succeed where sometimes talents fail. Manners are essential for all men, high and low, at home as well as in the office, in dealing with our near relations and o

Short Paragraph on Honesty (400 Words)

Honesty is a great virtue, the importance of which cannot be overrated in the affairs of life. Apart from its value in business, it has a great moral value as well. It is said that honesty is the best policy, and it is perfectly true. But let it be borne in mind that we should be honest, not as a matter of policy because it will be advantageous to us, but as a matter of duty. Honesty may pay us, as it certainly does benefit a shopkeeper whose credit it enhances, but we should be honest, without caring for any material gain. Even at the risk of losing, we should be honest and truthful. We should be honest with others. so that they may depend upon us, and believe us. A dishonest man will never be believed and will lose the confidence of his friends. Dishonesty may bring some trivial gain or temporary success, but the ultimate loss will far outweigh all the petty advantages. Not only this, but the moral loss and the pangs of conscience at having cheated our fellow-men will embitter our li

Short Paragraph on Company (300 Words)

A man is known by the company he keeps/ just as a tree is known by the fruit it bears. Our associates have great influence on our character. A good and virtuous man will, by the silent influence of his example, make us good, a wicked man will make us wicked like himself. Hundreds of young men are led astray by bad companions. It is very easy to yield to temptations. We must choose our companions with very great care. We must shun bad company as poison. In all religions, the company of the virtuous is recommended as a means of spiritual betterment. If we make bad friends, they will spoil our all efforts and bring us disgrace. On the other hand, if someone has good friends, they will bring him honor. It will help him to make progress in life. Good men will raise us to their level. Men more learned and experienced than ourselves will guide us aright through the difficulties of life. Their example and their teachings will ennoble us, raise our thoughts, place high ideals before us, and enc

Short Paragraph on Habits (350 Words)

The character is the sum of habits. If these are good, we call the man a man of good character; if bad, we despise him as a bad or a wicked man. Young men should form good habits for habits once formed have a permanent hold on us, and it is not easy to shake them off afterwards. Habit is second nature, therefore good habits should be formed in youth, which may stand us in good stead in the practical struggles of life. Truthfulness, honesty punctuality, dutifulness, charity, love, kindness, respectfulness, and obedience to parents and elders are the characteristics of noblemen, and these should be assiduously cultivated. Effort is required in the beginning to form a habit, but with patience and perseverance, we succeed in the end. Little children find it difficult to rise early in the morning, attend school, and fix their attention on their lessons, but with repeated efforts, the thing becomes easy. Association with good men and study of good books have great influence in the formation

Paragraph on the Influence of Climate on Character

Climate has a great influence on character. People living in cold countries are more hardy, active, and enterprising. Those living in hot climates are ease-loving and lazy. In moist climate, people are pale-faced and slow. Of course, where the cold is intense, the people remain inactive, they cannot move about; but temperate countries, especially those situated near the coast, like England, produce energetic and enterprising men. Such a climate is highly conducive to activity. The Esquimaux of Greenland, on the other hand, are mere savages. Punjab is a hot country, but its heat is not so intense as that of Africa, nor does it last throughout the year. Here the heat is dry, and alternates with cold: that is the reason why here we have a people known for their exceptional capacity for hard work, for their wonderful power of endurance, and for their fine physique. The Muslims command admiration wherever they go. Of course, during the hot days much work cannot be done, but the peasants who

Short Paragraph on Self Respect

A man must respect himself. He should not degrade his body or mind. He is what God has made him. Why should he he ashamed of himself? His duty is to make the most of the powers which he has. Even persons afflicted with any defect or deformity should not hate themselves. A man who despises himself will never rise, and will not command the respect of others. Respect yourself, if you wish to be respected by others. Self-respect will keep a man away from evil, will not allow him to do anything mean or unworthy, ‘Self-respect,’ says Smiles, is the noblest garment with which a man may clothe himself.’ It is the most elevating feeling with which the mind can be inspired. A self-respecting man will not defile his body, nor corrupt his mind. He will neither cringe nor crawl before others, neither fawn nor flatter, but will treat his officers with due respect. He will be courteous and polite to all and sympathetic and kind to his juniors. He will not hully those under him. To think meanly of one

Short Paragraph on Self Culture

Man has a body, mind, and soul, and there are great powers hidden in them, which must he developed. The proper training and development of these powers by one’s own diligent effort is self-culture.” “The best part of every man’s education, says Sir Walter Scott, ‘is that which he gives to himself. The education which we receive at school is more important training which we are to give ourselves on these foundations. That which is imparted to us from outside is not so much ours as that which we acquire by our own application and study. A student should acquire knowledge by the exercise of his own faculties. Our own work in this direction will strengthen our character. Physical exercise is essential for the development of the body. A. good digestion, a healthy and strong constitution are as much needed for success in life as keen intellect. Young men, besides taking regular exercise by means of manly games, should also train themselves in the use of tools, such as those of the carpenter.

Short Paragraph on Self Help (500 Words)

Self-help is the doing of one’s own work by oneself and depending entirely upon one’s own powers for the performance of any act, without turning to others for help in the matter. Men have been endowed with strength and intelligence by God and it is in the fitness of things that we should turn these things to good account and utilize them for doing things independently of others. It is a common saying that God helps those who help themselves, and so it we do not exert ourselves we cannot receive any help from God in tiding over our difficulties. Self-help is one of the highest virtues and upon this depends on much of national and individual greatness. The practice of this virtue creates confidence in our own selves and increases our strength, so that. by cultivating this virtue, we can hold our own against all odds. With the increase of mental strength also increases the strength of character, and all these have far-reaching effects. Not only are persons possessing this virtue benefitte

Short Paragraph on Self Control

Self-control is the most essential element of character. Without it, no character is possible. All true growth implies restraint. In Sanskrit books, the human body is compared to a chariot, the five senses or the horses are not kept under restraint, they will run away with the driver and throw him into a pit. These five senses should, therefore he kept in check. The mind of man is very restless. Unless it is controlled, it will lead him astray. All evil passions, all evil thoughts should be driven out; we should not give a loose rein to our feelings and impulses. We must check and suppress anger, ‘count ten,’ says a proverb. If a tender plant is not cut and pruned and protected from all evil influences, it will not grow. Similarly, a young man who is not properly guided. not checked from evil and turned towards. good, and who is allowed to go as he likes, and as his whims lead him, will never develop a good character. It is quite possible that he will mar his life. In future, he may ge

Short Paragraph on Self Sacrifice

Self-sacrifice is the noblest trait in human character. Giving up of one’s own interests for the sake of others exalts man. Parents sacrifice their comforts for the sake of their children, soldiers sacrifice themselves for their country. patriots and reformers sacrifice themselves for freedom and truth. Society is held together only by means of sacrifice. If each member of society were to have his own way, regardless of the comforts and interest of others, there would be utter chaos and endless struggle which would make peace and progress impossible. Sacrifice is the great law of the universe. One thing is sacrificed for the other, and this other sacrifices itself in its own turn for something else, and thus Nature carries on its work. Sacrifice is the price which must be paid for all progress. The seed is sown in the ground. but unless it loses itself, the crop will not grow. From the dead seed grow hundreds of grains, and similarly from one act of sacrifice spring peace, happiness, a

Short Paragraph on Punctuality (555 Words)

The habit of doing things at the appointed time is punctuality. Every man is sent out to the world to do his share of work within the limited span of his life. The amount of work to be done in a lifetime is so great and the time at our disposal so short that we cannot afford to lose time if we mean to do something “Time and tide wait for no man,” nor can it be kept in store for future use. So we must always make the best use of time, or, in other words, we must be punctual doing things in their proper time. An opportunity aliowed to pass away may never return and the work we hoped to do may remain unfinished. It is the habit of punctuality which enables us to perform the greatest amount of work within the short period of our life on earth. The advantage which punctuality brings to man is manifold. A punctual man is never in want of time and hence he is never in a hurry. Whatever he does, he can do with perfect calmness and so his work has no detected and is perfect. He is never late in

Short Paragraph on Discipline (450 Words)

By discipline, we understand that training which makes us active in accordance with certain prescribed rules and in implicit obedience to the orders of a superior authority. Complete obedience, without questioning the propriety or otherwise of the commands of a superior, is thus an essential factor of discipline. Every civilized society rests upon the solid foundation of discipline, for without it there would be no order or regularity but only chaos and disorder. What the rudder is to the ship, the sting is to the bee, the horns are to the hull, that is discipline to life. Just as it is impossible for a ship to sail over the sea with safety without a rudder, being entirely at the mercy of the winds and waves, so it is impossible for a man to pass through the journey of life with any amount of success without being protected by discipline. It follows, therefore, that discipline is of the utmost importance to us in all spheres of life at home. in school and college and in public life. A

Short Paragraph on the Rights of Man

What are the fundamental rights which every human being has, and the free exercise of which must be guaranteed to him or her by society? There was a time when man was supposed to have very few rights, and almost every department of his life was open to check the interference by the State, by the tribal chief or by the priesthood. The result of this was that the individual had no will or choice of his own, and was completely subordinated to the ruling class of the group or society of which he was a member. But since the rise of democracy, there has been a move in the direction of respecting the freedom of the individual, which had not existed before. The liberal thought, which took rise in the eighteenth century in Europe as a result of the thinking and reasoning of men like Voltaire and the French encyclopedists, the unlimited exercise of authority over the individual by Church or State was seriously questioned, and it came to he recognized that some limits should be set to the power o

Short Paragraph on Duties of a Citizen

A good citizen needs to imbibe many qualities. That he has some duties and responsibilities to bear is true, but at the same time he also enjoys some rights and privileges as a citizen of a free State. While he has every right to participate in the judicial, legal, political religious and social affairs of the nation, he has also some responsibilities. i.e. not to injure the sentiments of others and to protect the weak against the strong. To stand by State, under all the conditions, is his first and foremost duty. A good citizen must be ready to sacrifice his everything for the sake of his motherland. He is also required to be a patriot and nationalist. He should have firm and deep faith in the welfare of his motherland. He has to observe law and order. But he has also to keep in his heart, the betterment of the country, the welfare of the State, the good of society and the interest of the nation and possesses good moral conduct. A good citizen must respect the cultural heritage of his

Short Paragraph on Duty to Parents

It is the paramount duty of children to obey their parents, They are the most experienced guides, and the best well-wishers that children can have. They support them, they sacrifice their own comforts for their sake, they love them as no one else can, and they are the greatest blessing which young people can have. It is their duty, therefore, to revere them, to obey them and to make them happy. They have no object in view. in advising us but our own future well-being. When they correct our faults by gentle hints, by persuasion, or even by rebuke or chastisement, they have the best of motives. Being inexperienced, we do not understand the consequences of our actions; we are, therefore, liable to mistakes, and it is only their kind guidance which keeps us on the right path. It behooves young men, therefore, to place implicit faith in their parents, and to obey them in all matters. It is our duty to revere and please our parents as long as they are spared to us, but a grown-up young man,

Short Paragraph on Religious Instructions

In our schools and colleges, only worldly education is imparted to the youth of the country, and its result is that the intellect is developed, and the more important part of man, the spirit, is neglected. This purely intellectual education makes the man an atheist, and his ideas are confined to the material world only. The higher world of the spirit–and there is no doubt even in this materialistic age, that such a world does exist is entirely shut to them. Without religion, there can be no secure foundation for morals, either. Religion raises, and ennobles man, and it should form an essential part of a young man’s education. In Pakistan, unfortunately, the circumstances are very peculiar. There are so many religions here that it is not possible to teach them all in our schools. The government has wisely adopted the policy of noninterference in the religions of the people, and hence it is neutral in the matter of religious instruction. But all the same, the need of religious instructio

Short Paragraph on Islamic Democracy

The modern democratic state is a type of state which came into existence in the 19th century largely as an effect of the French Revolution and the Industrial Revolution of the absolute nation-state of 16th and the 17th century. But the Islamic state came into existence in the 7th century as an effect of the greatest Revolution of the world which was not only political and economic but also social and ethical. Islam revolutionized every aspect of human life. So, Islamic democracy in its connotation is wider than western democracy. It means not only political equality but also social equality. In Islamic society all are equal. There is no class-divisions or distinctions of birth and social position. All members of the society enjoy equal status and position. The only criterion of superiority in Islamic society is personal ability and character. Allah says: “O mankind! I created you out of a single pair of a male and a female. The most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is he who is th
