My First Train Journey
Travelling is my hobby and last year I had a chance to experience my first train journey from Dhaka to Rangpur with my parents. We arrived at the Kamlapur Railway Station at 7.00 a.m. to catch the 7.30 express train to Rangpur. Crowds had started gathering at the ticketing counter to buy tickets and there were long queues. Fortunately, we had bought our tickets two days earlier, so we went straight to the platform. There, we waited for the train and saw many people rushing to the platform. Children were running about happily. We quickly bought some magazines, mints and chocolates. The train finally arrived and we scrambled into our coach to get to our seats. I was lucky to get a good seat near the window. At last, the guard blew the whistle and the train moved slowly and pulled out of the station. I felt thrilled at that very moment and I enjoyed the jerky movement and the new experience. There were friendly passengers all around and soon we started talking and joking among ourselves. The scenery outside was interesting and varied. Trees, bushes, rice-fields and farmers' huts flashed past us and we were greeted by village children waving and smiling at us happily. I also saw vegetable farms with rows and rows of long beans, chilies and brinjals. Sometimes I saw children are swimming and bathing in the river. Some of them tried to catch fishes from the river. All the time of my journey I enjoyed the charming scenery of the nature of Bangladesh. At last we reached Rangpur station at 2 pm. We left the train and went to our destination by auto rickshaw. The journey is one of the memorable days in my life and I never forget the day. My Leisure
Man is born to work. He needs to work to live. But at the same time he cannot work continuously. He needs leisure to be recharged. Human beings cannot be compared to machines. Leisure refreshes us at the same time it gives us a new life. There may be thousands types of pastimes all over the world. Many pastimes around the world are common to people no matter what their nationality or race. But some are not. There are many activities by which I enjoy my leisure time like watching television, reading story books, collecting stamps, gardening, playing some indoor and outdoor games etc. I like to watch TV and whenever I get time, I watch TV. Another favorite habit in my leisure time is gardening. I have a small piece of land in front of my house. I have converted it into a little garden. There are five flower-beds 'and all types of plants. I spend some of my leisure hours in this garden. I water the plants. I weed out wild plants. I plant new ones. My little garden looks splendid in the spring season. The dahlias, the roses, the jasmines and others add to the beauty of other flowers in full bloom. I have a separate piece of land in my garden for vegetables and fruit trees. Another hobby in which I am sometimes engaged in is photography. It is a very expensive hobby. I have a camera of my own and a little dark room where I develop the photographs. I have by now a nice collection of photographs — each one a reminder of the places I have visited. Some of the photographs were taken last year when I visited Kashmir in the company of my friends. I also play some indoor games with my younger sister in my room. These leisure activities give me much pleasure and energy for completing my further routine work in time.
My Favorite Player
Cricket is my favorite games and my favorite player is the “Master of Cricket” Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. There is a saying in India 'Cricket is my religion and Sachin is my God`. The Master Blaster, holds several batting records, including the most test centuries and the most one-day international centuries, and was rated in 2002 by Wisden as the second greatest Test batsman ever, after Sir Don Bradman. Sachin was born on 24 April 1973 in Mumbai (then Bombay) into a middle-class family. His parents Ramesh and Rajni Tendulkar named him after...
