Question. Write a speech in 150-200 words on the topic, ‘A student must know how to manage his time’. It is to be delivered in the morning assembly. You are Karan/Karuna, Head Boy/ Head Girl of the school.
Good Morning, Respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends.
Today I, Karuna, Head girl stand before you to share my thoughts on the topic ‘a student must know how to manage his time.’
Time is very precious. Once it’s lost it can’t be gained. Student life is very important as it decides the future. Academics often creates a lot of pressure on students. As a result, they are unable to manage their time properly.
Time management is essential, especially at a competitive time like this when there is too much to do, but too little time. If a student plans and organises, her/his work according to the importance of it then definitely it adds to the efficient result of the work. Students should balance both their self- studies and recreation, which is also essential as it refreshes the mind. Only studies is not enough. If you are able to manage time effectively then there would be a scope to enhance other skills.
The time management in a student’s life would also enhance confidence. So, each and every student must learn to utilise time by proper planning and organising the things. Summing up, I’d like to say that if one is able to manage time effectively it reduces stress and helps one to achieve success in short period of time.
Question. Regular practice of yoga can help in maintaining good health and even in the prevention of so many ailments. Write a speech in 150-200 words to be delivered in the morning assembly on the usefulness of yoga.
Respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends, a very good morning to you all.
I am here today to make you aware of the importance of Yoga in our daily life. Yoga is a spiritual and ascetic discipline, developed by the saints of ancient India. They practiced yoga as an effective method of controlling their mind and bodily activities. Nowadays many lifestyle diseases are on the rise. Most of them are either physical, mental, emotional or psychological. People are always stressed and busy in their daily lives so they fail to relax and take care of themselves and their body. As a result, they suffer from one or more lifestyle diseases, such as diabetes, depression, even cancer, at the same time. Yoga in daily life is a system of practice consisting of eight levels of development in the areas of physical, mental, social and spiritual health. When the body is physically healthy, the mind is clear, focused and stress is under control. This allows one to connect with friends and loved ones and maintain socially healthy relationships. When one is healthy, one is in touch with one’s inner-self, with others and one’s surroundings at a much deeper level, which adds to one’s spiritual health. Yoga teaches to focus on breathing while you hold the poses. Even children can benefit from yoga.
I would like to conclude by saying that though yoga is a slow and steady process, its results, last for a long time. Besides working on body, mind and soul, regular practice of Yoga cures many ailments without any side effects.
Yoga has been used to help heal victims of torture or various forms of trauma. Since, yoga is a form of meditation, it results in a sense of inner peace and purpose, which has far-reaching health benefits.
Question. Power shortage has become a norm even in the metropolitan cities. One way to face this situation is by preventing the wastage of power. Write a speech in 150-200 words on the importance of power in our daily life and how to save power at school and at home. Imagine that you are the Principal of your school.
Honourable teachers and my dear students, a very good morning to one and all.
Today I, stand before you to speak about the importance of power in our daily life and how to save it. The dwindling resources of today are giving all of us nightmares and the scariest one is loss of electricity. It won’t be long before we are plunged into darkness and that too because of our own foolishness. Though electricity can be generated, it is not easy to do so and this fact needs to be recognised and realised at the earliest. We dread power failure but do nothing to save power so that we may not face such a situation. It is high time we started saving power, not only at school but at home too. Saving electricity will save fossil fuels too. We should switch off the lights, fans and all electrical appliances when not in use. We all should make use of the daylight to do most of our chores and not forget to check the switches before we leave the room. Encourage parents and relatives to install solar panels in the house so that more solar energy and less electricity is used.
Remember, power needs to be saved and utilised efficiently for future use. Wasting power is going to leave us powerless in the future and I am sure no one would like that. So, children make it a habit to save electricity. Set an example for others in doing so and lead the country to a brighter future.
Question. Write a speech in 150-200 words on the topic, ‘Library plays an important role at school’. It is to be delivered in the morning assembly. You are Karuna/Karan, Head Girl/Head Boy.
Good morning, Respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends,
I Karan, Head Boy, am standing before you to share my views on the topic ‘library plays an important role in school.’
Library occupies a significant place in school and in book lovers’ life. It houses books suited to the interests and aptitude of individuals of different age groups. Not only that, it also includes magazines, periodicals, newspapers. With its calm and tranquil atmosphere it is a special comfort zone to the students who go there to acquire knowledge, sharpen their minds or lose themselves in the fictional worlds of the stories. At the school library, the students would even find the material, which is not provided to them in the classroom. Here they find an environment which is conductive to the building up of the habit of self-learning. The library is the center of the intellectual and social activities of school. It most certainly has a wholesome effect over the students.
The habit of reading can be cultivated when students get practice in reading, and reading habit in the beginning is made firm when students get the material to read, which interests them and occupies their attention. In the classroom, books that are prescribed may not be sufficient reading material or some students may not be in a position to purchase all books that they want to read, or others may not find books that are of interest to them. A library is the only place, which comes in aid to all.
It is most unfortunate that in a large number of schools, there are at present no libraries worth the name. The books are usually old, out dated, unsuitable, usually selected without reference to the student’s tastes and interests. This situation should be taken care of.
I would like to conclude by saying that the library is an essential instrument for putting progressive methods into practice. It must be utilised well.
Question. Media has a strong hold on society. Write a speech in 125-150 words on how media influences public opinion to be delivered in the school assembly.
Good morning, Respected Principal, teachers and my fellow students.
Today I, stand before you to voice my concerns on how media influences public opinion. Media is a powerful weapon in any democracy. It keeps people updated with the recent changes and development in the society and the world. It also helps them understand these developments and build their opinion about the same. With the development of better methods of communication from print and electronic media to a more recent social media, the influence of ‘media’ has increased. Consequently, its responsibility of delivering correct information has also increased. However, when media is unable to do so, the fact gets lost in the media frenzy. As a result, general public believes what they see, read or hear from the media and form an opinion even if it is incorrect. Some of the content children come across through media may not be appropriate for their age. Certain television programmes spread the wrong message in the pretext of creating awareness. Moreover, certain news channels have the tendency to over- sensationalise sensitive issue and present to the viewers half-baked news completely lacking empathy for the sufferer. As the media has the power to showcase both the facets of a piece of information, it should work towards helping the common man to understand the difference between the real news and the fake news.
Media has a strong hold on society. It can do more than just spread the news. It can influence public opinion also. Therefore, it is the responsibility of media and the media personnel to ensure that they direct their efforts towards bringing forward the truth and only the truth.
Question. Write a speech in 150-200 words to be delivered in the morning assembly on the topic, ‘Beauty of India lies in its diversity’. You are Karan/Karuna.
Good morning, Honourable Principal, teachers and my dear friends,
Today I, Komal, stand before you to speak against the motion on the topic ‘Reality T.V. draws a factual picture of life’.
These days, many television channels telecast various reality T.V. shows. Such shows are no longer limited to Hindi entertainments channels. English as well as regional entertainment channels are also in the league.
A lot of viewers find the daily soaps to be unreal, nonsensical, and simply boring. Reality shows, on the contrary, are considered relatable, thus a respite from the daily soaps.
It is true that reality T.V. shows are interesting and most of the time hold on to the viewers attention. However, on the hindsight, these reality shows are just another gimmick used by television channels to gain Television Rating Points (TRPs). A make believe world is created within the T.V. shows, which appear to be real, but actually, it is not.
The participants in the reality T.V. shows may not be actors. However, on many occasions, they are found to be role playing. The way they behave, the things they say, seem well-rehearsed and scripted. At such times, the viewers’ emotional attachment to the reality show’s participants loses it credibility.
To top it all, exaggerated and forced emotions, expressed by the judges and contestants, adds to the fakeness of the reality T.V. shows. In order to cater to the sensationalism, sometimes the results are pre-decided. The contestant who is most loved by the public or has garnered maximum public sympathy and support is made the winner, Whereas the talented contestants get evicted or voted out.
I would like to conclude by saying that one might learn to accept failure or success from reality T.V. shows. However, one must not believe everything one sees there.
