    Fashion Among Students
    To be in fashion is a craze all over the world. Students in India also are very particular about fashion. Every student, whether a boy or a girl/ likes to wear dresses of the latest fashion. They want to look smart, up-to-date and attractive. They imitate actors and actresses. Tailors and fashion designers also keep on introducing new designs regularly. In fact, tailoring shops today are the temples of fashion.
    Even shoe shops are offering the latest varieties of footwear. Fashion also includes going to clubs, hotels or restaurants, drinking, smoking, reading film magazines, making friends with members of the other sex. Girls like to expose their bodies more and more, prefer to look like dolls and move about like butterflies. Girls go in for haircut, while boys are growing long hair. Students, in fact, do not realise that they are wasting their precious time as well as hard-earned money of their parents. It is essential to take proper care of the body but not artificially.                                              
    Good Morning Respected Principal, Teachers and My Dear Friends. Today, I, Preety would like to express my thoughts on Modernisation does not mean Aping Westernisation. Today we believe that if we follow western culture we become modern. Modernisation has become synonymous to westernisation. India is famous for its rich culture but we are obsessed with the views that if we dress up like western country people, eat their food and talk like them, web are modernised, forgetting that our culture is being ruined. Modernisation means being open to the modern developments, techniques, achieving good education, coming out of the superstitious beliefs and being liberal in our views. Medical sciences should be enhanced to make our life comfortable and life should be lived happily with contentment. If we have all this, we are modernised. Wearing short dresses, enjoying pizza and burgers but with no love and respect for each other does not make us modern. Modernisation and Westernisation are two different aspects. Thank You.
