It is difficult for people living in cities today to get enough exercise. Why is this the case? What can be done to solve this problem?
The amount of exercise that city dwellers get nowadays has reduced substantially in the past few years. This essay will discuss some possible reasons, as to why people living in cities do not perform physical activities regularly and suggest solutions to this problem.
The first reason is that, there is a shortage of designated areas for exercising in cities. Due to mass migration of people from rural to urban areas, cities have become overcrowded. Therefore, towns do not have enough space to accommodate the ever increasing population and public places are used by government for constructing houses. As a result, people struggle to find places where they can exercise. Another reason is that, people in cities are now busier than in the past. They work for long hours to make a living for themselves and their families. Hence, they have limited time after work to go to the gym or perform physical exercises.
Certainly, there are several ways to tackle this issue. Firstly, the government should provide more facilities to public for workout, such as opening public parks, sports and yoga centres. Moreover, these amenities can be made free of cost and maintained properly in order to attract people. If more gymnasiums, public parks or yoga centres are provided to the public, people will definitely use them. Secondly, companies can construct a small area in their premises for performing exercise, where employees can work out after their working hours are finished. In addition to this, people should also prioritise their health over work and money and make small changes in their lifestyle. For instance, people can walk the stairs instead of using escalators or elevators.
To sum up, the lack of space and time are the main constraints that discourage urban dwellers from getting enough exercise. However, building exercising facilities and people’s own initiative can solve this problem.

Who the person is
What they do
Why they are in the news
And explain why you would like to meet them
There are innumerable famous personalities that often remain in news or become headlines of
the newspaper. Most of the time they gain media’s attention because of their noble deeds and I
am going to talk about one such person. His name is Mr Ratan Naval Tata and I would love to
meet him in the near future.
He is an Indian industrialist, philanthropist, and a former chairman of Tata sons. He is a scion of
the Tata family, and great-grandson of Jamshedji Tata, the founder of the Tata group.
A few months ago, he was interviewed by a renowned journalist where he talked about a
massive donation of 5 billion dollars to Prime Minister’s emergency fund during the coronavirus
pandemic. The amount would be used for buying personal protective equipment for the
medical personnel on the frontline and testing kits to increase per capita testing, especially in
the backward areas of the country. Apart from this, the Tata Group took another major
decision, which was to support the livelihood and families of their temporary workers by giving
them full payment during the initial phase of lockdown.
This quality affected me the most and had left a positive impact on me. I would also like to
highlight that, he has been awarded the Padma Vibhushan and Padma Bhushan, the highest
civilian awards of India by the Indian government for his business ethics and philanthropy.
I am eager to meet this generous person and would like to thank him for his kind step towards
humanity. Also, I would love to learn about the early stages of his life, different challenges that
he faced from his business competitors and how he managed to become such a successful
industrialist. If I get a chance to meet him, I will not miss the boat.
Describe an area of science that interests you or you are interested in
You should say:
What area of science it is
What is it about
How you got interested in it
And explain why you enjoy it so much
I think that science has made an immense contribution in uplifting human society. It primarily
has 3 branches, physics, chemistry and biology and if I talk about myself, I am particularly
interested in biology and would like to talk about the same.
This area of science involves the study of life and living organisms, including their physical
structure, development and evolution on the Earth. I got interested in this subject when I was
in 6 th standard, as the subject was introduced to me for the very first time. My school books
were full of pictures of animals and plants. I was surprised to learn how a tiny seed grows into a
healthy plant, different species of flora and fauna; habitat in which they can survive and the
features which help them to do so. Whenever, I saw a picture of a plant or an animal it made
me even more curious about this subject.
My teacher, Mrs Rawat was an exceptionally knowledgeable person and she made this subject
easy and fun learning with her teaching skills. I remember vividly, there was a science lab in my
school where we used to go every Saturday to carry out experiments and the activity I enjoyed
doing in the lab was to observe micro-organisms with the microscope. There were times when
students did not understand the lessons for the first time and Mrs Rawat have not scolded any
children when they ask for an explanation to the teacher. In fact, for better understanding of
certain aspects she often organized trips. Once our school organized a trip to Botanical Garden
in Kolkata. It was a memorable trip and I had learnt a lot from this trip about different species
Although, I have not studied biology in my college, I have a keen interest in this subject and in
order to know more about different life forms and to keep my interest intact in this subject I do
watch wildlife and plant shows on educational channels like Planet Earth and Discovery.
STUDY ABROAD. CRACK IELTS. DO GMAT OR FIGURE OUT SOME OTHER COURSE. BUT JUST GO ABROAD.
You must have heard this. But then why? Why study abroad? Don’t we have good colleges in India as well?
I would say we do have and studying in abroad can be one hell of a fight. There is lot of paper work that needs to be done. Chances are that you feel home sick or may be experience cultural shock. There could be difficulties with understanding language and the classes can be more challenging.
WHY GO FOR IT THEN
You can sit in India with your friends and family but the exposure you get while studying abroad is worth a try. You get to know the different cultures of the world. Meet new people and make memories that last forever
Study abroad allows you to learn a discipline from a completely different cultural perspective. It allows you to develop skills such as creative problem solving, interacting with people from different backgrounds and lot more.
Stop being skeptical about studying abroad. It might be possible that you face some difficulties. But remember, it takes some cuts and bruises to get the perfect shape.
