It is worth looking at one or two aspects of the way a mother behaves towards her baby. The usual fondling, cud- dling and cleaning require little comment but the position in which she holds the baby against her body when resting is rather revealing. Careful American studies have disclosed the fact that 80 per cent of mothers cradle their infants in their left arms, holding them against the left side of their bodies. If asked to explain this left arm’ preference, you would probably say that it is because most people are right handed. By holding the babies in their left arms, the mothers keep their dominant arm free for their normal work. But a detailed analysis shows that this is not the case. True, there is slight difference between right-handed and left-handed females, but not enough to pro- vide an adequate explanation.

(i) Value of Games
(ii) Your Hobby
(iv) Bliss of Solitude
(v) A Visit to a Historical Place
Ans. (i) Value of Games
Games are an essential part of a person’s life and necessary for studies as it is an important part of education too. As much as knowledge helps in developing mind, games help the body to develop. For the mental and physical fitness of a person games and sport’s benefits cannot be ignored. Astudent needs something to get away from their boredom after a hard day at school and games provide them get out and relaxation. Games are one of the best ways to make someone’s mind fresh and strong. An individual who plays games shows a better concentration on books than the individual who spends
their entire day just reading text and doing no other activities. Studies without the inclusion of sports are incomplete. Games are vital for all-round development of the characteristics of a child, but it should be played in the right spirit and with due caution and care.
(ü) Your Hobby
A hobby is a favourite pastime. We need time to refresh after day’s work. So different people have different hobbies. But my hobby is gardening. I took to this hobby when I once visited a village. The green crops, tall trees and beautiful flowers left deep impression on me. On coming back home, I developed the backyard of my house into a garden. Now it is a beautiful garden, having flower plants and fruit trees. There are ten varieties of rose flowers in my garden. My garden is very dear to me. I spend two hours daily in my garden. It gives me pleasure- as well as good exercise. I feel proud when my friends and guests praise my garden.
Students live in the hostels for better preparation for their studies. There is a great difference in life at home and hostel- life. At home a student is free. He remains in the guidance and care of his parents. They try to provide him all sorts of comforts. Such comforts and affections cannot be found in hostels. In hostels a student gets more freedom and better opportunities for the development of his personality and to prepare his courses of study much better. Hostels also teaches students how to live together. They have to get up early in the morning and to read during study period. In the evening they have to play some games. Thus they develop the qualities of their education, love, co-operation and friendliness. There are some disadvantages also of hostel-life. Sometimes the students develop bad habits in bad association of some other students They spend their time in undesirable activities and neglect their studies. It must not be done for career-building,
(iv) Bliss of Solitude
“Bliss of solitude” means-the great joy and perfect happiness of living in the state (situation) of being without a companion of a friend. Really a great pleasure is sometimes experienced while living in solitary place without any other person. It provides the concentration of mind and the benefits of meditation. By living in place far from the crowded cities, a man finds himself amidst the nature, in the lap of open fields, rivers, mountains, streams, falls, fragrance of flower, fruits, chirping of binds and a number of wild life companions. Really, bliss of solitude for sometimes is key to eternal happiness and heavenly pleasure. We must enjoy it to boost our heart and soul.
(v) A Visit to a Historical Place
A visit to a historical place is both interesting and educative. Last year I had a chance to go to Agra. My uncle lives there. One day we went to see the Taj. I had already read about this wonder of the world in the history book. I was very anxious to have a look at it. When we were face to face with this monument. I stood spell-bound. I was surprised to see the beauty of the Taj. It reminded me of the past glory of India. It appeared to me like a dream in marble. I was surprised to see the Mughal art. The marble work in the hall is worth-seeing. We enjoyed the peace and beauty around. I can never forget the mmemory of the splendid Taj.
