Reck’dorunreck’d, duly with love returns.)

The first celebration was attended by 90 Native Americans and 53 pilgrims. Thanksgiving has been celebrated intermittently ever since.
Thanksgiving dinner with family plays a central role in the celebrations, with Americans eating more food on Thanksgiving Day than any other day of the year, including Christmas. Roast turkey is essential – approximately 45 million of them are consumed every year – as well as mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, sweet corn, and assorted fall vegetables, all food that is native to the Americans.
Parades are a big part of the celebrations too. They range from small-town affairs featuring the local marching band to Macy‘s Thanksgiving parade through the streets of New York.

Amar Neupane’s Seto Dharti is a fantastic piece of artwork. Tara, Pabitra, and other child widows are central characters in this book.
The main plot revolves around Tara’s life. She married when she was seven years old. She had no idea what love was then. Her own parents lied to her and forced her to remain in the Jaggya (wedding pavilion) claiming that they were worshipping God at home. She was taken to her home and told that she needed to go to the temple. She didn’t find out until the day after her wedding that she was marrying to someone she had never met before. She was sound asleep when it came time to execute the marriage rites. It was as if she were in a dream.
She cried a lot as she thought of her mother. Her mother advised her on the dos and don’ts of becoming a daughter-in-law. She had to stay in her husband’s house for a year. It was very painful for her to stay there. After a year, she moved into her maternal home. She lost her husband when she was nine years old. She was invited to her home without being informed of her husband’s demise. She learned that her husband had died as soon as she arrived home.

That was the first time she’d seen her husband’s face on his deathbed. Then she was taken to the ghatthat was on fire. Her jewelry as well as her clothing was taken away. Her head was shaved and she had to remain in mourning for thirteen days.
Towards the end of her life, she arrived in Devghat where she dedicated her life to God. She saw Govind’s image in the Swamiji there. Gobind was one of her childhood friends. He had taught her how to read and write.

7. Nowadays many young people are found increasingly involved in various video games in their mobile phones. Write a paragraph in around 150 words expressing your views about the mental and social impacts of excessively playing such games. (6)
Nowadays, it is quite common to see many young people engrossed in playing video games on their mobile phones. While these games can be entertaining and provide a temporary escape, excessive involvement in them can have both mental and social impacts.
From a mental perspective, spending excessive time playing video games can lead to a lack of focus and concentration on other important aspects of life, such as studies or personal relationships. It can also contribute to increased stress and anxiety levels, as the intense and competitive nature of some games can create a constant pressure to perform and succeed.
On a social level, excessive gaming can result in isolation and detachment from real-world interactions. Spending long hours immersed in virtual worlds can reduce face-to-face social interactions and hinder the development of essential social skills. This can lead to feelings of loneliness and difficulty in forming meaningful connections with others.
Moreover, excessive gaming can disrupt daily routines, including sleep patterns, leading to sleep deprivation and potential health issues.
While video games can offer entertainment and even educational benefits in moderation, it is crucial for young people to find a healthy balance between gaming and other aspects of life. Encouraging diverse activities, such as outdoor sports, hobbies, and social interactions, can help foster a more well-rounded and fulfilling lifestyle for young individuals.

One of my all-time favorite food items is pizza. This delicious dish has been a staple in my diet for as long as I can remember. From its tantalizing aroma to its mouth-watering taste, pizza has always been a go-to meal for me.

The smell of pizza is equally enticing, with the aroma of melted cheese, tomato sauce, and various toppings wafting through the air. The scent is warm and comforting, instantly making me feel at home.
The taste of pizza is simply divine. The crust is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, while the sauce is tangy and flavorful. The cheese melts in my mouth, leaving a rich and creamy taste that is hard to resist. The toppings add an extra layer of flavor and texture, whether it be savory meats or fresh vegetables.
The feel of pizza is also unique, with its chewy crust and gooey cheese. The combination of textures creates a satisfying and enjoyable eating experience.
