Neglect of the elderly- a depressing phenomenon
The feeling of loneliness and insecurity is now becoming common and the old people are avoided by the modern age. This is increasing day by day due to the introduction of the new social and western ideas. They think old people as a burden and try to neglect them. They face many problems, income problems, social problems etc. According to the census of 1991 the senior people constituted 15% of the total population and 5% are over age of 60.
Many children settle abroad and leave their old parents in their house alone and helpless. This problem is mostly seen in cities because people of villages still live in joint families. They live together and celebrate every festival as a one big family. One solution of this is that old people should work as a community and support each other as there is little support from the young society.

Trees here, trees there,
Trees are everywhere.
A special gift of God,
To save the son of lord.
Trees are wonderful,
With flowers beautiful.
Trees are a boon,
With fruits colorful .
Looking beautiful to everyone!
Whether big or small, to save the earth,
Trees are a must.
Pledge to plant a tree,
For a better future!

लाजवाब स्वाद
'स्वाद' वह शब्द है जिससे खाने की महत्ता का बोध होता है। जब भोजन में स्वाद ही न हो वह भोजन नीरस होता है, और जिस भोजन में स्वाद हो तो वह अपने आप ही श्रेष्ठ कहलाता है।
भारत एक ऐसा देश है जहाँ कश्मीर से कन्याकुमारी तक अलग-अलग भोजन में कईं प्रकार के स्वाद मिलते हैं। इसी बेहतर स्वाद से  वह भोजन स्वादिष्ट बनता है। इस दुनिया में एक भारत में ही हमें हर दूसरी जगह पर एक नए स्वाद का प्रमाण मिलता है। अन्य देशों के लोग जो अपना कुछ समय में बिता चुके है वह आज भी भारत के भोजन और उसके स्वाद के दीवाने हैं। पंजाब की मक्की की रोटी और सरसों का साग ,राजस्थान का दाल-बाटी-चूरमा, लखनऊ का शाही कबाब, दक्षिण भारत के इडली सांभर तथा मसाला डोसा, गुजरात का खमण-ढोकला, मुंबई के पावभाजी तथा वडापाव, इत्यादि। भारत के प्रमुख स्थानों का लोकप्रिय भोजन है, जिनके स्वाद का दुनिया लोहा मनाता है।

पिंजरे का पंछी
मैं पिंजरे का पंछी
कैसे आजादी का गीत गाऊँ,
दशा कैसी है मेरी बंद पिंजरे में,
कैसे अपना हाल  सुनाऊँ,
चाह होती है मेरी भी,
उडूं-उडूं चलूँ मुक्त गगन में,
नाचू खेलूँ झूमूँ डाली पर,
चहकूं मस्त चमन में,
पहाड़ों की चोटी को छूकर
पीऊँ मैं बहती नदियों का पानी,
खेतों की खड़ी फसलें बिखेरूँ,
सुने कौन मेरी  पराधीन कहानी
