IBMC #7: The News and Paper Challenge

You are going to pick up a news paper article. Either online or take a snapshot from the hard copy paper. Use appropriate reference for the article you have used. You need to debate and discuss your view points on the selected article. How best can you do? You can pick up any category like general, politics, entertainment, etc. Even guest columns are very much appreciated.

Here’s the bit I’ve chosen:


Hartals are our way of saying “strike”. Over here, in our country, even a few months ago, a strike meant wariness on the streets and closed schools and cancelled exams. but with all the constant political turmoil, these things mean next to nothing these days. You have exams and the opposite is holding a strike? Doesn’t matter. You’ll have to go sit for the exam anyway.

Nobody cares, but I still do, because by making strikes something to ignore, this country is taking away my right to unexpected holidays. :p

IBMC #7: The News and Paper Challenge


Author: anankhan98

When I close my eyes, I see myself as a writer. I see a pale blank page in front of me and feel a solid pen in my hand. I feel inspiration flowing through me, hear the words being whispered in my ears, ready to be written. And I see myself writing them. So, I write. And that is why I am here right now. To let the world know that I want to become better at this. That there is this unbelievably naive living in this corner of the world, who wants to have people help her become the best she can become. My focus is actually on fiction. I dream up stories in my sleep, literally. And I can't help but want to write them. Knowing English only as a second language is a drawback, though. I still try.
