Kabir: No my dear, don’t be so excited right now. I’ve learned that no less than three hundred candidates will go there. There is only one vacancy.
Me: Yes, this is the situation. I graduated three years ago. I have applied for at least three hundred jobs till date. But I’m yet to get any. Only examinations, interviews, and dejection at the end. I’m really tired of it.
Kabir: It’s the same story here, brother.
Me: The employment opportunities in this country are shrinking day by day.
Kabir: Population, on the other hand, has been increasing by leaps and bounds.

Bijoy: Isn’t it foolish to abolish the pass-fail system? Don’t you think that it has taken away our urge to study intensively?

Bijoy: But it will be formidable when we have to face the see-saw in class nine.
Pintu: Yes, because till then none of us will have tasted the bitterness of the examination system.
Bijoy: Then what is the use of making such an anti-student policy?
Pintu: Actually it’s a student-friendly policy.
Bijoy: You must be joking!
Pintu: Not at all. This policy conforms to our
constitutional right, that is the Right to Education. It stops unnecessary examination phobia among the first generation literates and thus lessens the number of dropouts.
Bijoy: Oh, that means our education system aims at keeping the mass in mind by dropping the necessity to pass. Really ridiculous.
17.Write a conversation between two friends about the high price of essential commodities.
Maya: Good morning, Bijoy
Bijoy: Good morning.
Maya: Are you going to the market?
Bijoy: Yes, Nabi. I’m going to face the day’s ordeal like you.
Maya: Right you are. Prices of essential commodities are increasing rapidly.
Bijoy: Just imagine, onion was twenty rupees a kilo a week ago. Now it is sixty rupees a kilo.
Maya: Its price will now bring tears to our eyes even before peeling.
Bijoy: As Bengalis, we are fond of fish. But it is very costly nowadays.
Maya: The day will soon come when only the kingfisher can afford it.
Bijoy: Sometimes I feel, we’ve to bring a cart full of currency notes to have a bag full of vegetables.
Maya: Yes, I too feel the same.
Bijoy: Let’s go. Otherwise, we’ll be late.
18.Write a dialogue between two students on how midday meals served in the school should be taken hygienically.

Bijoy: Have you washed your hands properly?
Pintu: No, why?
Bijoy: You should wash your hands and face before taking your meal.
Bijoy: Also wash your plate well before taking food in it.
Pintu: I will do these first and then join the queue before the kitchen.
Bijoy: That’s it. Take food only as much as you require. Don’t take less, don’t take more. Don’t waste food.
Pintu: What must I do after taking the midday meal?
Bijoy: Wash your plate and keep it on the shelf. Also, help others to clean their plates.
Pintu: And then only I’ll go to class and attend my lessons, isn’t it?
Bijoy: Right you are.

Father: My boy, every person has his bent of mind. So, you should choose your path.
Son: Then I must say, I wish to be a doctor.
Father: Why? Are you tempted by the money a doctor earns?
Son: Quite the opposite, Papa. I don’t think money is the sole aim of life. I want to be a doctor for an ideal.
Father: That’s what people say before they get into their profession.
Son: No, Papa. That’s not the case for me. I just want to serve people. My heart really bleeds for them.
Father: What’s your plan? Tell me in detail.
Son: First, I want to pass the Joint Entrance
Examination. Then I’ll complete the MBBS course. Thereafter, I shall start a charitable dispensary.
Father: May God grant you that chance, my son.
- Write a dialogue writing between two friends on early rising.
Pintu: Good morning, Nikhil.
Bijoy: Good morning. Are you late today?
Pintu: Late? Why? I usually wake up by 7.30 am.
Bijoy: That’s not good. Try to be an early riser.
Remember that ‘early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
Pintu: I don’t believe in this old age. I feel lethargy all day long if I get up early in the morning.
Bijoy: Have a sound sleep of six to seven hours a day. So, go to bed by 11 pm and rise by 6 am.
Pintu: In ancient times there was no electricity. People had to go to bed early because they couldn’t do anything late at night. Why should we follow them?
Bijoy: An early riser can start his day earlier than others and that too with a fresh mind.
Pintu: I don’t go to bed before midnight. I love to study at night.
Bijoy: This habit tells upon your health. It affects your body clock. Instead of burning the midnight oil, wake up in the wee hours and start your day afresh. It’ll keep you more energetic and healthier.
Pintu: My father also gives me some advice. So, now I’ll try to follow your words. Thanks.
