Youth and Facebook


If you ask anyone, ‘Do you have a bank Account?’ the answer would be ‘NO’. But if you ask, ‘Do you have a Facebook Account?’ the answer often is ‘YES’ (with laughter). Facebook is a social medium. Some also use it for their personal purposes. Most of the people are addicted to Facebook. They spend their time on FB. It has so many advantages and disadvantages. We can find our old friends and relatives on FB and chat with them. We can gain more knowledgeable from FB and we can play games. If we like news we can got more news from that and etc. These are some of the advantages. There are so many disadvantages for the youth. They often used it only for chatting.

Many people create fake IDs on Facebook and cheat others including girls. If you ask anyone if they have cheated others they would say it is only for fun. What is the fun in it?? Some commit suicide due to issue relating to Facebook. Often they change their profile picture and wait for ‘Likes’. If the ‘Likes’ decreases they get angry. Some are interested in updating their status on FB. Often they mention what are they doing and etc. I don’t know what benefit one can get from it. Next issue is comments. If anyone adds a photo on FB others comment on it. If someone writes a bad comment it could lead to fight.

In this world most of them are addicted to alcohol, drugs and others are addicted to FB. These are some of the disadvantages. Every one knows that Facebook is a social media. So we have to use it within those limits. I kindly request youth to develop a brighter future instead of wasting time on Facebook.

When the tourists come to our country we can get income for our country. The sellers who sell many things will get benefited by selling their goods. When the tourists stay in our country many people get job opportunities. People in Sri Lanka have a chance to talk in English and other important languages. Historical places around Sri Lanka will be famous all over the world. But, when the tourists are in our country our people tend to follow their culture. People spoil our culture. Sometimes, the tourists may smuggle our indigenous species of insects or other living creatures. When the tourists come in large numbers they may pollute our environment. Sometimes the tourists bring harmful drugs to our country. Diseases like AIDS can be spread among our people.

When they kidnap the wrong Bride …

SulaxshiI recently watched the movie ‘Vetrivel’. I saw it one month ago. I like the actor Sasikumar. Thats why I saw this movie. In the movie a brother attempts to get his younger brother married to the girl he loves by kidnapping her. But the plan goes wrong and results in a messy situation. The main characters are Sasikumar, Pirabu, Nikila, Miya George, Viji Chandrasekar, Ananth Nag, Varsha, Ilavarasu, and Renuka.

The film begins through a recollection from the past where a man commits suicide because he looses in election. So his wife gets angry with her brother Pirabu. Sasikumar’s brother loves Prabu’s daughter. But Pirabu didn’t accept their love affair. At the same time Sasikumar loves Miya, who works in an agricultural college. Pirabu has already arranged a wedding for his daughter. So they decide to kidnap the girl. But they kidnapped another girl. And it happened to be Latha, who is betrothed to Arul , the son of Pirabu’s sister.

The problem starts here. At the end Pirabu agrees for the wedding. Sasikumar starts to live wiith Latha. All of them live happily. Every character is well fleshed out and it is quite interesting to see how situations keep getting out of the characters hand.

My Best Friend.


          My best friend’s name is Theepthika. She respects teachers and her seniors. She is affectionate to her juniors. She is best dressed and a well-mannered girl. She gives respect and in return commands respect from others. She talks less but has the patience to listen to others. Whenever she talks she convinces others. She is a girl of few words. She is sympathetic and helpful to everybody. She is a good student and a dancer. Whenever there is no class she sits in the library and tries to go through all the new magazines and newspapers. When she finds nothing new she picks up some books of her choice, reads and makes notes. In the afternoon she is always in the field either playing netball, badminton or volley ball. She is equally dedicated to her games and her studies.

           I’m always welcomed to her home even by her parents. Her parents are very simple and affectionate. Theepthi is very devoted to her parents and looks after her father’s guests respectfully. Her mother is very good in cooking and she always makes me eat before i leave their house. During vacations whenever our hostel mess is closed i am allowed to eat outside. I visit them regularly as a member of the family. Whenever I miss my own parents I go there and get every thing I could get at my village.

Games and sports are an important part of our life. It provides the best physical exercise to children. Also it provides relaxation and entertainment.

Playing games helps to improve our brain. Through active sports we can be healthy. They are more important than food and water. Sri Lanka has arranged sports and games as a part of education at schools and universities. We should spend time in sports. They give energy and strength for us. Education without sports is incomplete. Sports give us an opportunity to grow in our life and games help in our career growth.

Games and sports include all outdoor and indoor games such as volleyball, badminton, race, Sudoku, computer racing games etc. They are very important and an easy way to improve physical and mental fitness. It gives us capability and efficiency.

Pen is an instrument likes a stick. It has a thin pipe likes a tunnel and inside full of ink and top and bottom of the pen has a little pin. Ink comes through the small nibble. When we write on a paper, automatically  came out and it can write letters or any other symbol.

There are different colures of pens. Few of them are blue, black, red, green, pink  etc….. But commonly we use blue, black, and red pens for our writing.

There are different types of pens like bolt point pens, ink pens, gel pens, signature pens etc…… Ball point pen has a thick ink and ink pen has a liquid ink.

Pen is very use full for us. We can write anything using the pen. I feel it is like water. We can’t live without water.  Also we can’t work at offices or any other writing work without using pens.
