Winner: Love of nature
Nature is the most precious gift given to us. It is our duty to save
and look after it. But unfortunately man is destroying it for his own
selfish purposes by cutting down trees, killing animals and
contaminating the atmosphere. Man is also polluting the air with
poisonous gases. We are steadily moving towards the path of destruction.
Imagine a world without flora and fauna.Now the world is grappling with
environmental pollution. Everyday people cut down trees. They do not
plant trees again. As a result we are left with only a desolate land.
People who know the beauty, benefits and the value of nature protect
it. If we protect nature, it will protect us in return. So we must love
nature and pay more attention to look after it.

Ships are big vessels used for travelling and transporting goods
across the oceans. In the early days ships were made out of wood.
Nowadays they are made out of metal and are driven by diesel engines.
Ships transport oil, cargo and passengers. They are in three
categories such as cargo ships, passenger ships and oil tankers.
Cargo ships are those which transport vehicles and other goods such
as garments, furniture, steel and machinery to different countries. We
use ships to export and import goods.
Passenger ships are those which transport people. When people want to
travel they select the ship they prefer. In passenger ships there are
swimming pools, playgrounds, restaurants and media rooms.
People use ships with all facilities for their leisure trips. The
journey by ship takes a long period to reach the destination.
Oil tankers are ships which transport gas, fuel and other oils. They
are transported by ship because an aircraft cannot carry large stocks of
oil due to lack of space.
There are many advantages of ships. A ship can transport a large
amount of goods at a time or 2000-3000 people.
The disadvantages are that a ship takes many days to complete the
journey. In case of accident, ships go under water along with the goods
However, ships are a good mode of transport. There is no other way of
transporting a lot of goods other than by ship.

Under the sea
Under the sea,
A place I've never seen,
But in imagination I seek.
Fish swimming side to side,
What a busy place is it,
Corals covering everywhere,
Add colour to my imagination under the sea.
The rays of the smiling sun,
Were above the sea,
Falling to the bed,
Of the beautiful sea.
I can't stay,
In my imagination anymore,
Because there is a future,
Waiting for me..
