Attention Given To Celebrities # Essay For IELTS

The media pays too much attention to the lives and relationships of celebrities such as actors, singers or footballers. They should spend more time reporting the lives of ordinary people instead. To what extend to you agree or disagree?

Celebrities have been a important part of so many people for time immemorial. There are many of them who admire celebrities, want to know how they live, rather want to become like them. With the times after media gaining power, the lives of celebrities have often been scrutinized in the name of building a bridge between their fans and them. There have even some celebrities who themselves came forward to share their lives. Although few people enjoy knowing about their stars lives, there are many who prefer knowing about lives of common man.

Media surely helps in bridging the gap between a star and a common man. The stories of their stars can prove to be inspiring for the common person. For example-: Recently Deepika Padukone came out and told the world about how she fought back depression. This became a source of inspiration for many who found themselves in similar position. Showing lives of their stars also proves to be motivating for many people. There have been cases when people truly worked hard to become like their favorite celebrities. Even more it breaks the illusion that celebrities were just lucky enough to be successful.

The real problem begins when media tries to over show the lives of celebrities. For example-: talking about their relationships or the places they go doesn’t makes any sense. Even more it irritates the celebrities at personal level. Also, it so happens that sometimes media forgets about the common man! For example-: if a common person achieves something and the media still talks about the lives of celebrities instead of showing the common man’s struggle, it come as quite disheartening to them.

Overall, I believe it is good to show the lives of celebrities but only to an extent where it could be motivating for the common man. Also the common man must be given the undue importance in times of great achievements or great misery.


Report Bad News # Essay For IELTS

The media should limit on how much bad news they report because it discourages people from doing activities which usually involve very little risk. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Write at least 250 words.

[PARA 1]

We become what we think, and mostly we think what we see. Media surely has a very important role in our lives. The general decisions about our lives are almost dependent on the news given by media. More importantly, with the globalization we all get to know about things happening around the world. There are so many achievements, inventions and also crime taking place at every moment around the world. The more the media gives attention to a particular topic, more are its chances of getting attention by the common person.

[PARA 2]

Media surely can change the outlook of individuals from negative to positive or vice versa. For example-: if media constantly flashes the news of rape or murders, it is obvious that people will stop their girls or women to step out of the house or take extra care about things around. Constant bad news often causes a level of mistrust among people. Even more there are people who going through a rocky phase in their lives, listening to bad news constantly can cause more negativity in them.

[PARA 3]

However, it cannot be denied that people have the right to know about the things happening around. For example-: if there is a terrorist attack, it is the right of an individual to know about it. Denying people news like this would let them live in an illusion. Even more media could also be quite helpful in the rough times. for example-: when Nepal was hit by earthquake, media coverage made it possible for people to know the condition the people in Nepal are left to live in. This initiated many donations and other helps.

[PARA 4]

Overall, everything works on balance. Although showing only good would make people live in illusion, reporting only bad may make them negative. It must be prioritized by media to show both the aspects of livelihood.


Essay # Latest Technological Developments

The younger generation is mainly responsible for the latest technological developments. How far do you agree?

The world has become a global village and the barriers have blurred out. A considerable shift in the approach of doing things, can be observed easily. Gone are the days when people were satisfied with a 9 to 5 job; this is the era of entrepreneurship, the era where people are on their edges to show their creativity. New things are being developed every day and the hunger for achieving greater heights has paved its way into human minds. At this point, considering only younger generation while talking about the great advancement would be unfair to the older ones.
You can never create a house if you don’t have the ground. Although most of the latest advancements are credited to younger generation, but the basis of these developments are provided by the earlier generation. For example-: facebook, Google, dell or apple might not have been possible if Charles Babbage had not developed the computers. Even more the mother of all languages “C” was developed by Dennis Ritchie who was in his late 40s when he developed it. There might not have been any facebook or twitter or android, had Dennis Ritchie not created C.
Having said that, the younger generation is surely developing new, exciting technologies. It could rather be said that they are effectively utilizing the base that already has been given to them. A ground is useless if you are not doing something about it.
