Government or individuals responsible for the environment?


Some people say that it is the individual’s responsibility to protect the environment while others say that it is the Government’s primary role. 

Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Sample Answer

Saving the environment is no longer a subject matter that is limited strictly to science. With changing climatic conditions, a particular community cannot be held entirely responsible to keep a check on the environment. Common environmental conditions such as water pollution, air pollution, noise pollution and global warming is a matter of serious concern. In my opinion, it is under the government’s control to solve environment related issues which cannot be implemented without an individual’s support. 

On the one hand, there is an ongoing discussion on an appropriate role of the government regarding saving the environment from global warming. Therefore, industrial construction related activities cannot commence without the approval of the government. As half of the population of our country are currently reeling with water related crises, abnormally high temperature, deforestation and melting of Himalayan glaciers, this issue cannot be ignored. It is the duty of our government to take immediate actions involving the signing of petitions, treaties, saving wildlife and the land. For instance, they can promote usage of solar energy and also ban industries from dumping industrial waste in the water bodies.

On the other hand, however, managing environment issues cannot be successful until and unless the individuals take an interest in it. Being a member of society, everyone is equally responsible for their environment. As ‘Every drop of water makes the mighty Ocean’, an individual can make personal efforts such as avoiding usage of plastic items, keeping their neighborhood clean and reusing products. For instance, tiny steps like taking car-pools instead of personal vehicles to work can also be implemented.  

In my opinion, if the government and the citizens play their part simultaneously, without blaming each other. It would definitely bring a positive effect on the environment. The government can impose laws to prevent environmental degradation while awareness and education among the citizens can have a significant effect on such issues. By modifying their lifestyle and living habits we can help save the environment.

I own a MacBook Air which is manufactured by Apple Inc. The laptop has an amazing  configuration and it supports most of the latest software. It came with its upgraded IOS operating system and it was a bit expensive for me to buy but I can say that it was definitely worth it. I bought it approximately a year ago when I replaced my old Dell laptop with this new one.

It is used for a variety of official purposes as well as personal use. I use the internet to find information for several projects, communicate with my friends, listen to music using this laptop. I sometimes prepare some documents and play games in it as well. This laptop serves as a source of entertainment too.

I’ve been using laptop for more than 10 years now. Since the technology changes with every passing days and the use of latest software which demands faster performances, we need to upgrade our computers and laptops very regularly to ensure good performance, I replaced my old laptop with this new one for the same reason.

It has definitely become an unavoidable technology for me that I use almost every day.

IELTS CUE CARD #A speech that somebody delivered and you heard IELTS BAND7 DEHRADUN

Sample Answer :

Speeches have always been a fun event to me.  I was particularly interested in public speaking since childhood.  I used to listen to lot of speeches on the radio and television. Speaking to a huge crowd requires lot of self-confidence. I remember lot of good speeches that I’ve heard in my life. Also I can recall some really bad speeches.

I wish to talk about one specific speech given to us at the national AIESEC conference by a UN Indian Ambassador. The speech was interesting, brief and very informative.

The speech was given by at the opening ceremony of the conference. He was giving a speech to brief us about the new sustainable development goals designed in the UN for the betterment of the world. He has been a part of the Indian panel that is associated with the development of the nation. He has been working with the UN from the last 5 years. He began his journey as a former volunteer from the IIT Delhi cell. He also inspired us to work for the society and his speech kept me awestruck. I understood the importance for empathy.

His speeches included lot of breath taking examples and view from different walks of people. He told us various stories of compassion and empathy. He had made a real effort to prepare a good speech that was funny, well-researched, engaging and genuinely heart-touching.  For example, he made us play this amazing ball game ice breaker, which helped  a lot to understand the various representatives better. It was a great way to ‘break the ice’ and involve everyone, and the results were hilarious.

I think the speech was outstanding as it involved everyone, shared funny (but not too private) stories. It was also not too long!  It held interest, and was appropriate for the us to engage.

The speech gave an insight on what effective communication can do and how it can help interact with people in a positive way.
