Life in a City

City life is full of advantages and disadvantages. There are a lot of advantages of living in a city. The people who live in cities enjoy some special facilities and comforts unlike the village people. Their houses are modern, streets are well-lighted. They can go shopping and buy everything they need. In case of sickness they can avail the treatment of best doctors. Moreover, they can receive education in schools, colleges and universities of high standard. They can also visit libraries, parks, museums and so on to stimulate their minds. But city life has some drawbacks too. The city life is very fast. Everybody is rushing for a better life, a better luck and a better opportunity. In city area people usually use vehicles run by fossil fuels which causes heavy smoke. Those smoke causes air pollution. Thus, people living in urban areas take the soup of chemicals. We don't see the harmful gasses but we inhale it. The fast life, the foul and smoky weather and dirty atmosphere cause health problem. Last but not the least city life is more or less artificial and monotonous. It has no touch with nature whatsoever. 

The Game I Like Most/My Favourite Game

There are various kinds of sports in our country. I enjoy many games such as cricket, basketball, hockey and football. Of all these games, I like football most. It was first played in England. At present football is played across the world.

Football is an outdoor game. It is played in a field of 120 yards long and 80 yards wide. There are two goal posts on each end. They are eight yards apart and have a bar on them. The bar is put eight feet above the ground.

The game is played between two teams of eleven players on each side. The game needs 100 minutes to end with an interval of 10 minutes in the middle. A referee conducts the game. At the beginning, the ball is placed at the centre of the field. The play begins when the referee whistles. Then each team tries to pass the ball through the opposite goal post. There is a hard competition between two teams. It is an exciting and thrilling time when a player becomes crazy to make a score. Only the goalkeepers can touch and catch the ball with hands. The team which scores more goals wins the game.

There is a good discipline in the game. Every player must abide by the rules. Not only the players but also the spectators come to know how to struggle to become successful.

Football is a nice game. It has instructive and cultural value. It also gives us much pleasure. After our school, in the afternoon we usually go to field and play football. In all respects, I like this game most.
