Free Essay: Government and Military personnel should have the right to strike

Government and Military personnel should have the right to strike

Government and Military personnel should have the right to strike

The government of India ( or write your country’s name) is unfair about many things. One of them is that the employees of the government and military cannot go on strike. This downright mad and absurd.

Striking is common in India. It is used to peacefully protest against charges ( new laws, rules and right). Not a long time ago, shopkeepers in Mumbai went on a strike to resist a tax law. If they can do it so can others.

According to the Fundamental Rights, each person has the same rights. But military and government employees don’t get to enjoy this rights. This arose inflammatory feelings from them in the past and is infuriating many today.

This is an iniquity to government and military personnel . If the Indian government does not solve this problem immediately, the consequences will be catastrophic.

People have overly dependent on Technology-essay

There is difference between today and 200 years ago. Today people are blindly dependent on technology. This is a fact that is certain.

Technology is a plant which bares delicious fruit. But to get that fruit you have to pluck its thrones and destroy the neighboring plants. So many things have been lost in man’s purge to gain greatness, like the water mill which has been replaced with the water turbine.

Though technology is very helpful and ease-to-use, we have lost the art of letter writing. (replaced with E-mail) The fruit mixture greatly reduced the use of the fruit  pelter.

Technology gives us comfort but it also gives us destroyed environments. The use of technology must be reduced or else, instead of fruit, we will get thorns.

Argumentative Essay-Should all students in high school and college be required to take at least 2 years of a foreign language?

Argumentative Essay-Should all students in high school and college be required to take at least 2 years of a foreign language?

This topic is debatable  so opinion varies person to person. Here, is my view about learning foreign languages.

The world is enormous. The people talk in all different sorts of languages. There are around 300,000 languages in total. Each is unique and has native speakers. To live in a foreign country, such as France, you have to know French. Foreign languages besides English should be compulsory.

Learning foreign languages help a student become incisive and being-able to communicate to foreigners. Most good jobs send the employee to European countries such as Germany. If one does not know German there, they will incoherent. Being able to talk in German in this situation is essential so for the person to take foreign languages.

I believe all students in High school and college should take at least 2 years of foreign languages. It is very helpful as people of different nationalities will communicate in harmony, bringing the world closer.

Now Poll Time…Please give us your opinion:

Should all students in high school and college be required to take at least 2 years of a foreign language?
