What is Report Writing?
Report writing is writing an account of something that you have heard, seen, done or studied. It is something that is written for others to read. Thus, you may be asked to write reports to be put up on the notice board, to be published in the school magazine or to be sent to some other school for the students there to read. You may also be asked to write reports for news magazines, journals or newspapers.
Report writing may be about projects or activities you or your class is involved in, or about happenings in and around your school. It may also be about local incidents.
Salient Features of a Report:
- A report should be short (of about 150 words), terse and precise.
- Only essential facts should be included.
- Very often the Passive Voice is used (e.g., A survey of families in slum areas was conducted…, The police were called…, etc.).
- The day of the occasion/incident/project, the time (if necessary) and the place should be mentioned.
- Names or designations of important officials or guests involved should be mentioned.
- Reasons for the success or failure of the happening should be given.

- Facts must be backed by convincing supportive information.
- Any special individual efforts should be mentioned.

Visit to a School for the Deaf and Dumb
Last Saturday we visited the school for the Deaf and Dumb at Ashram Road, Ahmedabad. It was a planned visit, so twenty students and two of our teachers visited it seeking prior permission. The P.R.O. took us around.
The things over there were all unusual. We were greatly surprised and entertained by observing the way they communicated. They used sign language. Their facial expressions and finger- movements conveyed all that the person desired to communicate.
The person on the other end also did the same and it seemed that the communication was so easy as normal persons do. The most outstanding feature was nobody seemed to have been deprived of God’s gifts of hearing and speaking. Their disability was only on our minds but nowhere in the air around.
The P.R.O. explained to us how they talked and worked. We saw their study classes, where they learnt like normal students. We were also taken around to their activity blocks. There we saw them working DH computers, and also doing various craftwork. Their teachers and instructors were not all disabled like them but they were trained to impart academic as well as other skills. All their efforts were being done in the way that even if being disabled they could be put in the mainstream and pace with the competitive world.

Teachers’ Day Celebration
This year, September 5 was special to us because we knew that Mrs Inamdar would be leaving school for good in a month’s time. As planned, four of us girls went early to school. We cleaned and tidied up the classroom. We put up charts and paintings about the teacher on the soft board. Some were made by us, some were made by the other boys and girls of the class. We decorated a vase with fresh flowers and kept it on the teacher’s table.
When our teacher walked in, we stood up and wished her ‘Happy Teacher’s Day. Then one ’ by one, some students gave her cards, some gave*her flowers. Nitin read out a poem 8n ‘My Teacher’. This brought tears into everyone’s eyes. When she told us to take out our books, we requested her not to teach.
So she sat down and Gauri, our class monitor, took the lesson. She made us read and asked questions. Then the bell rang. We greeted our teacher again. We gave all the other teachers flowers and cards that day. The students took the lessons in all classes. We thought that we should give our teachers rest at least for one day.
Write a report on ‘Selfie Mania among the youngsters’.
Vadodara, August 8
Selfie Mania among the youngsters
Selfie is the latest fad among people, especially the younger generation. Whether you are at the railway station, restaurant, in the park or any other scenic or not so scenic place, you would come across youngsters clicking pictures of themselves, which are more commonly known as selfies.
Though these selfies are good for a person’s Facebook post, but there have been several instances where selfie-obsessed youngsters have severely injured themselves or even met their death while trying to take a selfie.
Oblivious of the surroundings, people have fallen to their death or have been run over by vehicles while in the process of taking a selfie. Some individuals have even gone a step ahead and attempted to take selfies at dangerous places or in difficult positions thereby meeting a gory end. Take for instance the recent case of Preeti Vaidya, a 17-year-old teenager. The girl was trying to take a selfie on the tetrapods at Marine Drive. The tide was high and it hit the girl pulling her into water. This is not an isolated case but many incidents have taken place in which precious lives have been lost.
In fact, it is young men who” are more prone to undertake dangerous selfie. A large number of selfies posted on twitter and come to the conclusion that 13 per cent of these were taken in dangerous situations. Alarmingly, a majority of these were young people falling under the age of 24. While in the world most people have died by falling of high buildings and mountain cliffs, in India most deaths have been water-related or near railway tracks. In the world of virtual reality, human bonds are weakening and the generation is becoming more prone to selfies.
