Father gives my sister Kamal pocket money. She is very careful with it. She spends some on bus fares and only sometimes will she buy a snack or drink from the school canteen. She has a piggy bank in which she saves her money. Last week she said to Mom, "My piggy bank is full. Will you help me start my own bank account?" Mother was happy and they opened an account for her. How proud Kamal is of her new Bank Pass Book. "I will fill my piggy bank again and put the money in the bank!", she said happily.

Points: His dress and appearance - what work he does - his nature and habits - our attitude towards him. My uncle's name is Jayantilal. He is my mother's younger brother.

My mother and I are members of a library near our house. There are many sections with different books. I make my way to the Children's books. I usually read some books that cannot be taken home. When there are more than ten children, an Aunty reads aloud to us. She makes the story very interesting. Sometimes I take the same book home to read again. I have made new friends here. We all come at the same time. I feel very grownup when I choose the books for myself at the Library. I can happily spend many hours here.

It was Saturday. I woke up and wondered why everything was so quiet. Dad was on tour, but where was Mother? I went to her room and called out. A weak voice said, "Come in". I ran to the bed. Mother was ill. Her body felt hot and she could not get up. I ran to the kitchen, made a cup of tea for her. I then called our family Doctor. He came, examined mother, gave her an injection, and some pills. Spending the day in bed mother felt much better and was her usual self the next day.

Points: A travelling salesman - dress and habits – advantages - hardships - honest tradesman. A Street hawker is a travelling salesman. He moves about with his shop from house to house and street to street. He dresses poorly. He sells all kinds of things, big and small. We can get cloth, crockery, fruits, vegetables, needles, toys and many other things from him. A hawker cries out his wares very loudly. Sometimes he rings a bell to draw our attention to his wares. We can buy things from a hawker at a reasonable price. The hawker does not have to invest much money in his business. He does not have to pay any rent. He carries his goods on a hand cart or on his head. He is therefore able to sell them cheaper than in the shops. We can save time and energy by buying things from hawkers. We more...
