    There is no doubt that, importance of culture cannot be neglected all over the world. It is composed of various traditions, warmly welcoming guests is one of them. By the time passes, it changes way of thinking that has been used by our ancestors.

    There are number of reasons involved to lost our values/culture. For example now a days life is too busy, we engaged ourselves in technology and extended our needs. Because of this reason it seems difficult for us to spare time for guests and other family members.

    Another reason is we changed our life style , we are habitual of spending lavish routine, we cannot compromise on it by welcoming guests. For example when guests come, they expect our full attention and time, however it is difficult for us to compromise on our fancy routine life.

    As far as solution is concerned, firstly we need to understand our tradition and values. People around the world are known from their culture. If we ignore it , few decades later we will be considered as history. To keep our culture alive we need to teach our young generation about it and its importance. For example if our children ignore it and believes , if guests come our life will be interrupted then they will not respect our culture, it is our responsibility to communicate them how and why culture is important for us.

    In modren lie we have to face with many problem on of which is traffic congestion becoming moe serious day by day. it is said that the high volume o vehiclethe irrational disturibution of the develpomentare many reason or increasing traffic jam jam.

    The major cause is the high number o vehicle which was caused by the population . and the development of economy and in this time mostly people don’t like to public transport every one wants a own transport . because every doning rat race. no one like to wait or public transport.
    To solve this problem the government should encourage people to use public transport. or vehicle with small size such as bicycle. and make tex on private vehicle.

    But government cannot handle the issue o traffic is also an crucial reason. public transport such as buses and train its quality is very bad . the government should make an investment the traffic facilities like the public transport need improving to become more modern and convenient.

  3. Khurram Sheikh, Askari V, Malir Cantt, Karachi says:

    It is an undeniable fact that people have difference of opinion, regarding most enjoyable part of life. The importance of both cannot be denied. Before we jump to any conclusion we need to rationalize the things first and discuss both the aspects carefully.

    Some people seems to be convinced that teenage is happiest part of life with full of joy. For example no one can forget the time when everything is possible with little efforts to convince parents , I remembered the time when needed a motor bike and got one after gloomy face in front of them.

    On the contrary there is another school of thought , believes that adult life is full of pleasure with lot of liabilities. People enjoy life in its full spirit and enjoy to grow their family and happy to have offspring’s. For example during this tenure every family member relies on you, everything is possible all the tough decisions are easy to make with strong belied and no fear.

    As far as my opinion is concerned , I cannot deny the fact that adult life is full of joy beside all responsibilities. For example when someone is getting job and have enough amount to fulfill dreams or desires it is most memorable and joyful tenure of life.

    In conclusion I like to reiterate that we are blessed with life, it depends on us how we are spending it and make useful, its ever part has its own importance but the adult life brings prosperity and happiness with lot of responsibilities

  4. Alam Alam says:

    Custom is also called tradition. It is something which people do or have done for longtime. Custom is more about practices, whereas the culture is more about group of customs. Every society has different culture so the customs are also different. In Islamic societies the guests are of religious importance and welcoming guest is an important event to earn the blessings of almighty Allah. It is said that the guests bring blessing and are considered the source of increase in income, food and goodwill for the family being visited.

    There was a time when arrival of guests was a source of entertainment, happiness and leisure but these days this tradition is on the downfall and on the verge of dieing out. The main reasons for the decrease of this custom are change in life style, non-availability of time for entertaining guest and changes in socio economics of society.

    Change in living standards and price hike has forced everybody in family to work full time or part time to match the living standards or progress in life. This has lead to non availability of less time for own as well as for family entertainment. Moreover, the trend of going out for dinners on weekends only is on increase. The involvement of media and watching favourite tv channels has forced families to stay home even on weekends. So overall there is a downfall in interactions between families due above said reasons. Now the families only meet on special occasions like marriage, death, birthdays or special dinners etc.

    In order to resume this custom we should increase the interaction. The occasions can be managed or manipulated by ensuring availability of time and schedules. The families can be invited on dinners to meet the trends of going out. Simple menu can be selected to ensure economy.

    imtiaz Arshad, Karsaz , Karachi

    • Alam Alam says:

      Dear Imtiaz,

      Introduction
      – First four sentences are not related to topic. “Custom is also………….are also different”

      body para 1
      – “is on the downfall and on the verge of dieing out” placement of “and” is not appropriate here.
      – You could have added more supporting details to support controlling idea of a topic sentence.

      body para 2

      – grammatical error ” This has led* to non availability”
      – Keep central idea of a paragraph clear and support it with related sentences.

      body para 2
      – this paragraph shows over-generalization.

      – Conclusion paragraph is missing

      Suggestions

      – Introduce the topic and give thesis statement in introduction
      – develop 3 paragraphs at least in body by keeping general idea and supporting it
      – always conclude
      – do not add details in introduction and conclusion

  5. Alam Alam says:

    Customs are the traditions or the practises which we inherit or adopt from our parents or forefathers,customs are of different types in different countries and in different religions among the differnt customs one is to welcome the guests, guests are the persons who normally visit us at our house, work place or at any other place where we can entertain them.

    In our religion we believe that guest are the God’s blessing so we should entertain them very nicely but now a days we normally observe that people don’t do it like that,because of very busy lifestyle people don’t have enough time, in past normally only family head use to leave the house for earning but due to increased social and economical pressure day by day most members go out to meet their job requirements therefore they don’t have plenty of time to entertain the guest,they are tired, they have to prepare for the next day requirements,they want to give quality time to their family members and want to spend most of the time only with the immediate family. On the other hand in past if guests were entertain with only one or two dishes they use to be happy but now due to unnecessary social pressure we can’t act like that we have to make or order too many things which disturbs our daily budget also and in my opinion one more biggest reason is that now joint family system exist very rare if there are more persons or elders living with us then it will be more convenient to give company to the guest even if someone os missing or tired.

    In short in order to keep this tradition alive we should welcome our guest with a good smile and good heart so that our children and other learn this from us and there’s a big responsibility towards guest is that they should look and understand the host’s convenience they should come on the weekend either on the off days or they should give a call before coming so they should be properly entertain and our this beautiful custom of welcoming guest should not vanish or dye.

    Lubna Imtiaz, Karsaz, Karachi

      – Use “they” instead of “customs” to show good references skill

      Second para
      – break paragraph into sentences with correct functions

      Third para
      – break paragraph into sentences with correct functions

      Suggestions

      – break paragraph into sentences with proper functions so that examiner can get certain message in each sentence and understand what you intend to discuss or explain.

  6. Khurram Sheikh, Askari V, Malir Cantt, Karachi says:

    The threat of Nuclear weapons maintains world peace. Nuclear power provides cheap and clean energy. The benefits of nuclear technology outnumbered the de-merits.
    Do you agree or Dis agree?

    It is an obvious fact that technology plays vital role in today’s modern society. Similarly nuclear technology benefited the world in different aspects. As far as my opinion is concerned, I completely agree that its benefits are more obvious than its demerits.

    It is an undeniable fact that people are afraid of nuclear destruction, thus it helps to maintain peace in world and discourage countries to support race of its weapons. For example for solution of any problem all countries of world having it, it is avoidable to discuss about their strength in terms of weapons, they encourage table talk for solution. Hence it helps to maintain peace in world.

    On the other hand nowadays it is mostly used in power generation, because it provides most cheapest and clean energy. Different countries are introducing its power plants because of its smaller maintenance cost and huge capacity of generation. For example China built largest nuclear power plant in their country to fulfill their power demand, and similarly other countries are following china to solve power crisis issues. Therefore the use of this technology cannot be ignored in power sector.

    It is also very useful for medical treatment, it helps to diagnose different diseases, cancer is one of them. Nuclear technology brings revolution in the field of medical science.

    It is concluded that its benefits are more obvious than demerits, and this technology is still growing and it will help world to stabilize in future.

    • Alam Alam says:

      Dear Khurram,

      Introduction
      – introduction is good

      body para 1
      – use comma after “For example,”

      body para 1
      – superlative degree mistake. “it provides the cheapest and cleanest..”

      – you could have added more supporting details in last paragraph of the body.

  7. Mostakim says:

    Due to large demand of energy sources such as oil and gas, should people be looking for sources of oil and gas in remote and untouched places.

    Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages of damaging such areas?
    Natural energy sources particularly oil and gas are the prime drivers in the recent development of the globe. To meet the balance, scientists need to explore new energy source terrain in dispersed locations. This exploration often leads to a groundbreaking contribution to the social developments even though, at the same time, they should look at other alternatives to way around the upcoming shortage of natural resources.
    The first and foremost welcome result of exploring new places for energy sources is that there is a high possibility to get natural sources without making concerted efforts. This is because, the globe is full of natural resources. However, it is likely that if they would focus on the known area to explore new source, they could have got natural sources more easily than an unknown area. This is also supported by the evidence found in Saudi Arabia in which new energy sources have been discovered in every now and then.
    One positive side of exploring new areas over existing areas is the reservation of new areas. It is commonly believed that current source areas are going to be run out within few years. Therefore, in this crunch period, new areas are the only possible solution to stamp out this difficulty. Nevertheless, exploring a new areas costs an arm and a leg, may be a stumbling block for developing countries. In addition, it is not time effective to search out a new source where there is no guarantee to get enough gas and coal to meet up demand.
    In conclusion, exploring a new area for natural resource has both pros and cons. It is my firm conviction that the disadvantages far outweigh the advantages of this research. Rather, scientists can employ to pave way new form of energy source to meet the balance.

  8. Alam Alam says:

    As the population increases the human needs of natural resources also increases and the availability of such enrgy sources like oil and gas becmoes affected by the usage

    To maintain the balance of production and utilization it is quite sensible to use the new places . The new development affect the economy very positively and it also gives the chance to skilled people to play their role in development .we can say that the issue of unemplyment can be reduce to some extent by . Such new discoveries of resources gives very bright chnace to a country to become independent .

    But on the other hand we can not neglect the bad affect of such developmnt as the chnace of polution increases also is it difficult to accommdate the poor people from the remote areas .

    As a conclusion i must say that the utilization of new places give very good and bright affect on every aspect as compare to disadvantages .

  9. Dr. Shirjeel Chaudhry says:

    “Some people think what children learn in school is waste of time, other think the knowledge is useful”.
    Discuss both sides and give your opinion.

    Every human being has a different brain, and thus different ideas and opinions about various aspects of life. Similarly the topic of school as a waste or use has been a center of debate for long time. There are various kinds of schools running these days, most of them are not up to the mark. The quality of education they are delivering to the students are not according to the minimal standard which they should pursue to strike. But not all schools are like this. There are schools which deliver quality education, and results in a better outcomes compared to children who prefer home studies than going to school.

    In my opinion children must join proper school. This is the responsibility of the parents to get their children admitted to the right kind of school, and inform the authorities if a school malpractices or if the quality of education they are delivering is sub-standard. Depriving a child from proper schooling, learning and education, by thinking that school would be a waste of time and learning from school would be of poor quality, that too without making a religious effort to find a quality school is a negligence on part of the parents, and also the higher authorities should be held responsible for such acts, as they did not check the quality of schooling in their local areas, plus they also failed to convince the ignorant parents what their young ones rights are.

    When a child is born he starts learning from the very first second of his birth, in fact science has now proven that insensible learning starts even before birth while the baby is in mother’s womb. But that learning is very basic or we can say more of an instinctive modulation. As the child grows up he starts recognizing his mother, initiates social smile in response to others smiling to him, cries to get attention etc. So we see that learning is a basic necessity which begins at a very basic level insensibly. But if that child remains to a isolated environment, not interacting with anyone else other than his family and close ones, he starts having an introvert personality, in which he is afraid of strangers and reluctant to go to crowded places and talking at public forums.

    Such shy and under confident personalities leads to a poor academic results once they reach high school level, multiple failures in life, they becoming easy target for others to laugh upon and ridiculed. Gradually these children either become emotionally unstable, lack confidence, easily irritable, passive, and sometime criminal minded and psychopaths which become a constant threat to the community. The community which could have flourished because of that child’s hard work, intelligence and wittiness, may face various acts of crime, or may become dull because of shy, unhealthy, suppressed and isolated individual who are more of a liability.

    Coming to conclusion school not only teaches our children the ABC of books but it also it teaches our little angels the ABC of life. It may demand a heavy bag of costly book but in return it will help our kids to become the right men and women who will bring us a brighter, happier and safer tomorrow.

    • Alam Alam says:

      Dear Dr. Sharjeel,

      Introduction

      body para 1
      – repetition of words (schooling, learning and education). They mean same.
      – after “Depriving a child…” the whole paragraph is not well organized coherence wise.

      body para 2
      – comma is needed in this phrase “As the child grows up, he starts recognizing”

      body para 3
      – third person plural correction “personalities lead* to a…”

      conclusion
      – good conclusion

      Suggestions :
      – Keep introduction and conclusion general. Do not explain or give details in them.
      – Keep functions clear in all sentences.

      it is a good try..keep it up

    Individuals can do nothing to improve the environment, only governments and large companies can make a difference. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

    Protection of environment has become a vital aspect in the present century. However, many individuals believe that they are unable to take required measures in development of environment. This essay will argue that every individual have a responsibility in looking after the environment affectively, by taking certain measures.

    Firstly, individuals should dispose the wastage in a proper method. Every year tons of wastage are dumping in seas, oceans and rivers by the individuals, this can be improved by disposing wastage in a disposal factory. For instance, if every person stop throwing away the plastic bags and send it to a recycling factory, then that would lead to a development in the environment. Furthermore, it leads to increase in the population of sea mammals, where they are getting extinct by the wastage threw by the humans into the oceans.

    Secondly, there should be a reduction in the water usage for unnecessary things. Even though there are water restrictions places in the countries like Australia, still many people use the water for washing their cars and bikes. Moreover, water is one of the living source for humans, whilst it should be used wisely to protect the environment. For example, every house should be fitted with a water meter in it, where it sends regular water usage readings to the officials and if there is any excess water usage recorded, then the officials should impose heavy fines on them.

    Finally, often every individual should question their local government, whether they are taking any particular measures to improve the environment. Because most of the government officials do not involve in taking such measures until if someone questions them and it is the responsibility of every individual as a citizen.

    In conclusion, every human being should participate in the development of environment by taking certain measures. Eventually, it will be beneficial for individuals in the long run.

  11. RABAIL says:

    According to the American film editor John R, “Tomorrow is the most important thing in life”. How important it is for individual and countries to think about the future rather than focusing on present?
    Give your opinion?
    Have you ever wonder if there is no other day except present and you have to pass out all your life in a day without thinking of next day. So, what is the situation at that time when you will not have any future for which you have to plan your goals or other life circumstances? While considering this ridiculous situation you will justify that upcoming days are important in your life.
    To begin with, it is often observed that countries focus more on their future plans to get better results. Developed countries, for example, are mainly emphasized on their futuristic plans because they get enough time to manage, process and to achieve their targets. As a consequence, these countries lead toward success because they use present to make plans for future.
    Secondly, from the point of view of individual, next day always come with hope. Human life is programmed in such a way that without the hope of tomorrow; people are deprived of the means to proceed their life.
    Furthermore, in some cases where present is more adequate then future, the ability to cope up with different matters will be affected, especially with financial matters. For instance, people earned one day and spend it all at current day without saving for the rest, by doing this, they will not have plenty of money which will worsen their life.
    On the contrary, there are those who argue that people who are much more concerned about their future often neglect their present charms, which is paradox. Unfortunately, such people sacrifice their present time and thus, they have not got any satisfaction in the end.
    All things considered, it can be concluded that people should focus to built their future but it does not mean that they quite their present leisure time. The best course of action would be to attempt to achieve a balance between the realizations of present and make it best for future time.

  12. Alam Alam says:

    Media always play a tremendous role in the growth of a society whether it is good or bad.

    Some people think that media play a vital role in the development of a educated society because it organizes so many educational and carrier oriented programs which are very beneficial for the society . Likewise media also help in the generation of a well aware society Because it keeps the people informed about the newsies ,inventions and development from all over the world. On the other hand media is the best mode entertainment and relaxation because people enjoy a variety of programs , dramas, movies,sports and talk shows through it and this way a healthy and fresh minded society build up.

    Although there are so many positive aspects of media but we can not ignore the bad impact of it as well. Especially some times media exaggerates the bad newsies and problems that cause the depression in the society .on the other hand Through the media the competition between the people has become very tough and some people commit crime just to achieve their goals ,this way some time media becomes the reason of crime and violation in the society.

    In the conclusion i must say that we are living in the era where we are highly influenced by the media and we can not ignore the positive prospects of it. So it is up to us that how do we get the impression of such things.

    Zarmina, Osaka, Japan

    • Alam Alam says:

      Dear Zarmina,

      Introduction
      – the phrase “whether it is good or bad” is not logical. It does not show any connection to part of sentence before it.

      body para 1
      – third person singular (media plays*)
      – spelling mistake (career* oriented)
      – third person singular (media helps*)
      – third person singular (society builds* up)

      body para 2
      – sometimes* media
      – replace “some time* media becomes” with “sometimes* media becomes”

      conclusion

      – use comma after the phrase “in the conclusion,”
      – use less pronouns like (i,we) to make it more formal essay

      It is not a bad try apart from the introduction in which topic should have been introduced. Keep it up…

  13. RABAIL says:

    Q:Some people think what children learn in school is waste time. Other think the knowledge is useful.
    Discuss both side and give your opinion.

    Knowledge is basic necessity of every individual. Especially, children need it more. However, it is highly debatable whether they learn enough from the schools as, some people consider that schools are merely distract their children to other activities.
    To begin with it, in this technological era, upcoming generation needs extra educational abilities to cope up at vast learning platform. And for this, they need high multi tasking skills which is possibly provided in school. In effect, student learn different subject and participate in extra curriculum activities. As a result, IQ levels of those children increase, moreover, they get several positive attitudes in supervision of their trained teachers.
    In addition, due to multi cultural fellows at school, a child can develop its social senses which will later helped him/her in socializing with people without any hesitation.
    On the other hand, opponents of school system argue, that new learning systems of schools lure their students, either wasting their time or influence them with fun doing activities. This argument may be true because new system allow their students to learn with different activities and style. Therefore, parents who attend their strict schools in past have a right to claim for this particular fact.
    On the whole, every century has its own facts. So, one should understand them and merge themselves according to current situation. Personally I think, children spend wise time and learn well from their schools but at the same time, schools should focus on their educational system, as a consequence, parents get satisfied with it.

      Dear Rabail,

      Introduction

      – you could have merged second sentence with first one.
      – “However” has not been used appropriately as there is no contrast.

      Body para 1
      – spelling mistake “in fact*”
      – singular plural (subjects*)
      – possessive pronoun (his* social senses)
      – future tense error “which will later help*”

      Body para 2
      – third person singular (new system allows*)
      – parents who attended*

      conclusion
      not a bad conclusion

    Custom of welcoming guests is dying out. What are causes of this?
    What should be done to bring it back?
    Coming of guest is one of the greatest blessing of God, but the costumes of welcoming guest is decreasing day by day, there are reasons behind this negative type of attitude.
    First of all, modern world we live in today presents us with many issues like traffic jam on roads, climate change, day by day increase of terriosm, false news spread by media, competition and many more, everyone is busy in facing and tackling these problems, even though no one has enough time to spend with their family member.
    Secondly, financial issues of people that are most common in developing countries, like Asian and most of western countries, bind the people to cut down their own expenses and live accordingly and unable to afford extra burden. In addition to day by day increasing expenses of things and many goods, make people some time unable to fulfil children’s desire, so that most of the individual have to do extra work to earn more in order to maintain their social status.
    Conversely, there are solutions of these courses which can help to overcome this situation. In my opinion, we should promote our culture and reserve tradition of welcoming guest. For this the eldest member of family should arrange rules for every fellow of family that should be followed by all. Like arrange get together or picnic once in month and parties on main occasions for example on Eid day, Iftari parties in Ramzan, Diwali etc. By doing this we can keep continue good relationship among relative and friends.
    Furthermore, every person acts moderately and manage its time for each other and divide equal responsibility so that everyone can get time for leisure and entertain and enjoy their life.
    In conclusion, God blesses us in the form of guest, It is happiest moment of our culture so we should maintain this custom.

    Normally it is very difficult for human beings to adapt the changes in their normal lives and it is noticed that the people who deny to accept the changes faces so many problem.

    Especially such people can not keep theirselves with latest and the fastest trends of the world , science and technology and consequently feel their selves Out of this world. For example if people will not adapt the latest technologies like mobile phone , computers etc will feel their selves out dated because we all are dependent on these technologies and these technologies making our life easier. In my opinion the most obvious solution for such people is that they should gradually encourage their selves for such changes and think about the positive aspects of such changes and should try to understand the importance Of such things.For example they can join the courses , attain the seminars , they could try to meet the people who help them in the understanding of such technologies and changes.

    In the conclusion i must say that we are called the people of modern and scientific age . So, we should try to keep ourselves with latest trends of this modern world .

    Young people are involved in criminal activities what are cause of it? What solution would you suggest?
    Over last few decades mostly big cities around the world have seemed to involve in corruption and terrorist work that increase the level of youth crime .However, there are reasons for this through that young people has to involve in dreadful activity and also some possible solution.
    The first reason is connected with the families, when child grow up in the balanced way, it is very important that he or she should look after carefully in growing age by parents. However, Nowadays it is often seeing that children are mostly neglected may be because of hectic schedule of parents. Even though both mother and father have to effort for children desires but unfortunately due to live alone most of kids follow wrong way that take them towards crime side.
    Second reason is, to watch T.V. Nowadays every country of the world broadcast crimes shows in real they want to attentive country people from terrible incidence. Conversely, young people attempt these very bad activities for example drug abuse, sexual assaults and murder etc.
    However, there are ways to tackle such problems. Firstly, one of the ways to combat the problem is to have stricter punishment.Although,it can be outside factors that lead to crime, it is still important to have sever punishment to deter teenagers from crime. All often, because they are young, the court is too lenient. Parents also have to take more responsibility for their children’s actions. They too should be punished if their children commit crime.

    Individuals can do nothing to improve the environment, only governments and large companies can make a difference. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
    Protection of environment has become a vital aspect in the present century. However, many individuals believe that they are unable to take required measures to protect the environment. This essay will argue that every individual has a responsibility to look after the environment effectively, by taking certain measures.
    Firstly, individuals should dispose the wastage in a proper method. Every year, tons of wastage are dumped into the seas, oceans and rivers by individuals, which can be improved by disposing the wastage in a disposal factory. For instance, if every person stop s throwing away the plastic bags and send s it to a recycling factory, it would help in protecting the environment. Furthermore, it would lead to increase the population of sea mammals, which are getting extinct due to the wastage thrown by the humans into the oceans.
    Secondly, there should be a reduction in the usage of water for unnecessary things. Even though there are water restrictions in countries like Australia, still many people use excess water for washing their cars and bikes. Moreover, water is one of the living source s for humans, thus it should be used wisely to protect the environment. For example, every house should be fitted with a water meter, that sends regular water usage readings to the officials and if there is any excess water usage recorded, then the officials should impose heavy fines on those houses
    Finally, often every individual should question their local government about, whether they are taking any particular measures to improve the environment or not. Because most of the government officials do not take such measures until someone questions them and it is the responsibility of every individual to ask questions as a citizen.
    In conclusion, every human being should participate in the protection of environment by taking certain measures, as it will be beneficial for individuals in the long run.
