Prevention is better than Cure

English Essay on "Prevention is better than Cure"

It is always better to look after one’s health and avoid illness than to fall in and take treatment for it afterwards. Similarly it is better to look after one’s money and not to waste it than to become poor and be in need of money. So we say the prevention is better than cure.

In every walk of life we see that this proverb holds good. When there is an epidemic it is always advisable to take precautions against it so that we may not catch it. It would be foolish to neglect laws of hygiene and invite illness, fall ill and then to take medicines to cure ourselves. It is equally true that prevention is better then cure in respect of bad habits, like gambling, drinking and smoking. It is easy to form any habit but hard to give it up, once it is formed. A person starts drinking and smoking heavily and then falls ill. He is advised to give it up for the sake of his health. He may succeed in giving it up but he has ruined his health already. It would be better not to fall in that habit at all.

I-Ic is ill, suffering from some disease. Will he be happy? He would not be able to enjoy the good things of life he has got because he is not healthy. On the other hand, let us consider a poor man who does not possess all these comforts of life, still he posses a good health, he will certainly, be happy.

He is free from all types of pains, sufferings and diseases. That is his great happiness. One is unhappy inspite of his wealth, while the other is happy although he has no wealth. That is why we say that health is wealth.


English Essay on "Democracy"

There was a time when King and Maharajas were absolute rulers and their words were law. Those days are gone now. Now there are no such kings, treating people like dumb driven cattle! Even if we do have kings now, they are not all powerful. They have their parliaments and they must consult their parliaments. These parliaments consist of the representatives, elected by the people. This is called democracy. As it is usually described, for the people and by the people.

It is clear that in Democracy people elect their representative. Now in elections all sorts of people may stand as candidates. If people are ignorant they will not be able to make the right use of their votes. The result would be that the power of government would fall into hands of the wrong type of people. They would misuse their power and lead the country in ruin. Education therefore is a necessary condition for the success of democracy. Democracy means the rule of the majority and if the majority of the population of the country is poor, ignorant and uninterested in matters of government, one cannot expect democracy.
