ESSAY WRITING IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE


Yes folks! Essay writing is not rocket science. It is much more difficult than that. Really!

Scientists spend months in calculating as to when to launch a rocket, what should be its weight, what should be its inclination, what should be its speed, what should be its distance, etc. They make several teams of scientists and experts for calculating these essential facts. They seek weather reports for the day of rocket launch, and almost a month before and after it. They collate all these facts, and much more of the information, and then decide about the time and place of the rocket launch. They seek support from the government. They take defense measures, they seek help from various departments such as foreign affairs, environment and forest, home ministry, etc. They prepare the best possible safety measures so that in case of an accident, they are able to save the human lives that could be affected by the accident. They use the most advanced instruments in the scientific calculations, and for the end result, i.e., a successful rocket launch.

However, do we carry out any such measures to write a good essay? Do we read good essays for the whole year? Do we write a page a day as a practice? Do we write full-fledged essays on fortnightly basis and seek our teachers/guides’ help to improve them? Do we make a group of friends that are active and avid essay writers and encourage the group members for improving their essay writing skills? Do we write essays and send them for the entry in the magazines that publish essays from its readers, such as magazines that print content for competitive exams? Do we prepare to control our mood swings on the day of exam? Do we really carry out many such tasks that will certainly help us improve our writing skills throughout the year? Most of us really don’t do all this. And that’s why essay writing becomes much more difficult than the rocket science for us.

Thus, it is in our hands to really take hold of our writing skills right from the beginning of the first session of the academic year. Launching a rocket (writing a good essay) successfully and easily is in our hands.

A pair of comfits

A  pair  of  comfits  (the  doctor  sandals)  is  just  a  pair  of  comfits.  It  walks  its  wearer  out  in  comfort.  Sometimes,  the  reason  for  which  it’s  bought  makes  it  special;  it  becomes  a  pair  of  uncommon  comfits.  
Hence,  the  incident  of  Mr.  Kapoor.  He  remembered  how  he  felt  that  the  pain  in  his  knees  had  reduced  since  he  started  using  the  pair  of  comfits.  It  was  a  new  pair  gifted  to  him  by  his  beloved  wife  on  his  last  birthday. 
Initially,  he  was  hesitant  to  buy  any  birthday  gift.  He  thought  that  exchanging  birthday  gifts  is  a  practice  among  kids,  teens  and  youth.  He  had  crossed  forty;  he  shouldn’t  be  into  all  this.  In  addition,  he  wished  for  a  non-pompous,  silent  birthday  that  can  be  celebrated  best  with  the  family  and  good  food.  But  his  wife  pursued  him  to  buy  something  for  daily  use  on  his  birthday.  She  reasoned  that  she  would  go  and  buy  som…
