Q. Over the past few years there has been constant rise in Coaching Institutes and private tuition centers all over India. Write an article in about 150-200 words highlighting the exploitation of young minds that seek sincere counseling and proper direction. You are Mahesh/Mita a student of class IX of Kendriya Vidyalaya, BHU Varanasi.
Title: Increasing Dependency on Coaching Institutes
Tuition centres and Coaching Institutions have increased in large numbers over the past decades.
The competitive attitude that has conquered the hearts of parents and children alike, force them to admit the young ones in these classes. While going through coaching institutes to prepare for various entrance examinations has definitely helped students, their role is way too much exaggerated. It's the power of advertising and peer pressure that makes students to gravitate towards these institutes. It has become a lifestyle of both the elite and the common man.
Most of the institutes are promoting education in lieu of earning more and more from the students. To get maximum earning from the students, the institute faculty does such a counselling of the students that they tend to feel so attracted towards the course they offer. Even, the parents also feel that they should enrol their kids in such courses to brighten their future.
Then students are over burdened with the schedule and their minds are exploited by such tight schedules. The need of the hour is that parents must spend a few hours with their children, while they read and learn. Apart from the classroom learning, all that a student require is attention and time. For any other assistance, the teachers and staff at school are ever-ready to help them.

Q. Our attitude towards a situation evokes both negative and positive response. Analyze this with reference to the poem, ‘Dust of Snow’ to bring out the inherent valuable lessons.
Whatever situation life throws at us, it evokes both positive and negative responses. The poet, in the poem ‘Dust of Snow,’ was in a sorrowful mood. However, when a crow shook down the ‘dust of snow’ on him, his bitter mood changed into a more optimistic one. Now, being in a sorrowful or bad mood already, the poet could have got angry at that crow also. However, the dust of snow becomes a positive medium of change for him. It made him cheerful to some extent and helped him forget his sadness, at least for a few moments. Thus, we see that instead of seeing the negative aspect of a happening, one should see the positive aspect, and one’s response may greatly affect the outcome of incidents.
