My Aim in Life

English Essays & Paragraphs 

My Aim in Life (English Essays) #eduvictors #essays

I want to be an engineer in life. Life is full of variety. There are different types of careers. Because of differences in the natures and abilities of persons, people take up different careers. Opportunities also matter. Sometimes people may have abilities but not opportunities. Then they have to be satisfied with something different. I am lucky in this respect.  My father is an officer with the Government of India. I am the only child of my parents. Luckily I am a good student too. So,if I am selected for the engineering competition, money will be no problem. And I am confident that I will be selected. I am training myself to study seriously from that angle.

English Reading Comprehension (Set-15) - for Class 9 and 10 (#readingcomprehension)(#eduvictors)(#class10English)

The word ‘comprehension’ signifies to completely comprehend the content utilizing one's insight.  A comprehension passage is a textual content set for checking out the reader’s potential to recognise (apprehend) the meaning being implied by means of the textual content and the subject matter of that unique passage. Questions based on a passage generally appear as a chronological relationship with the passage. Usually, the first question has the answer in the initial paragraphs and so on but if the answers are inferential then the complete answer might have to be gathered from various paragraphs and for this, one has to be thorough with the entire passage.


(SQP 2019)Read the following passage carefully:

1. Few guessed that this quiet, parentless girl growing up in New York City would one day become the First Lady of the United States. Even fewer thought she would become an author and lecturer and a woman much admired and loved by people throughout the world.

Chapter  2: The Sound of Music - Chapter Theme and Summary

CBSE Class 9 - English (Beehive)- Chapter - 2 : The Sound of Music - Chapter Theme and Summary (#eduvictors)(#cbse2020)(#class9English)

Author: Deborah Cowley


Part 1: Evelyn Glennie

Theme
The first part of ‘The Sound of Music’ is based on the theme that earnest efforts and able guidance pave one’s way to success. The aspirations, endeavours and achievements of the eminent Scottish percussion musician Evelyn Glennie were made possible by her unfaltering determination, firm resolute and self-confidence. Those who learn to overcome their handicap certainly accomplish their goals. One should have faith in one’s abilities and then the sky is the limit.


Summary

Evelyn Glennie, a most desired musician internationally, is a multi-percussionist who can play thousands of instruments flawlessly. Amazingly, she accomplished this status regardless of her disability as she was significantly hard of hearing. But she figured out to listen with her body instead of the ears. She feels the music through her body.
