Unseen Comprehension SocratesSocrates taught that the man who is master of himself is truly free. By being master oneself he meant first knowing oneself- one’s faults and weakness and one’s good points, without making any pretence and without being vain and then being able to control oneself.

This knowledge of himself was what helped a man to be courageous and the courageous man has very important sort of freedom from fear. Socrates himself, because he was not afraid of the consequences, always felt free to teach what he thought was right, however unpopular this might make him with the powerful people in Athens.

No wonder all his pupils loved Socrates. But he made some dangerous enemies by his strange way of teaching and asking questions. Some of the rules in Athens did not like people to be encouraged to ask questions for fear that they would begin asking questions about what the rules were doing. So they accused Socrates of teaching young men wicked things, and leading them to throw…

In those days of the past teachers left no stone upturned to educate the learners and the students for the purpose of beautifying the aims and objectives of prosperous nation. Because of their sincere activities they were held in extreme, but the sense of teachership has been totally perverted by the second-hand participants, no doubt. Throughout the world teachers do many objectionable activities with derail the mind of the learners, students and scholars. Teachers become rapacious when they think that they are deprived of their just portion. They do not follow the principle of being an angel or a god. IT is really unethical, irrational and illogical.

Unseen comprehension about the sunLife on earth depends on the sun. Day after day we see its light and feel its warmth, but we do not often consider their origin. Yet there are many remarkable things about the sun. One is its distance from the earth; bout ninety-three million miles. A journey of this distance, even if it could be made, would take several hundred years even in the fasted rocket.

The sun is a large star. The planet earth is very small in comparison. One hundred and nine globes the size of the earth would be needed to stretch from one side of the sun to the other. The sun makes us feel hot, even at a distance of ninety-three million miles. This is not surprising. The temperature of the sun is about ten thousand degrees Fahrenheit. But we receive only a small fraction of this heat. The total heat of the sun could melt a column of ice a mile thick and ninety-three million miles high in one second.

The brightness of the sun is equally astonishing. The sun gives such a brig…

Style in clothing change more rapidly because of fashion than because of comfort and necessity. Why are dress short one year and long the next? The weather does not vary that much from year to year. You might try to explain changes in fashion by using practical reasons. We could say for example that short dresses are cooler in summer and long dresses are warmer in winter. But these explanation are not satisfactory. Why not? Actually the answer is that the need for variety and the desire to be different are as important or more important than that practical reasons. Differences – even small differences are noticed immediately. Fashions usually change because people want to be noticed.

In recent years a new element has been introduced into fashion. It is the shock element. You shock people by doing something radically different such as by wearing something unique. Some women for example, were men’s clothes. While others were extremely short for extremely long dresses.

The Grameen Bank

The concept of the ‘Grameen Bank’ is the brain-child of Dr Muhammad Yunus, a professor of Economics Chittagong University. He is the founder and Managing Director of the Grameen Bank.

He understood that without improving the lot of the poor people, it is not possible to achieve economic development of the whole country. So, he came up with the idea of micro-credit and established the Grameen Bank. To the poor , this bank lends money which they can use in many productive activities. Proper steps are taken to ensure the best use of the money lent to the poor.

The system of lending money following this bank is very flexible. People can repay their installments from their profit. This bank has gained popularly across our country, particularly in rural areas.

The Grameen Bank’s success has been praised by many western countries. Some countries are following the strategy of the Grameen Bank to alleviate their poverty.

So, the Grameen Bank is now a model micro-credit bank in the world.

So, one cannot enjoys much time to do a lot of work.

In an extended family, especially a student can not enjoy much free time. So, he can not continue his studies properly.

One often can feel lonely and bored. If any member faces any problem, the other members come forward to extend their help him or…
