A Visit To A Garden
Essay No. 01
A visit to a garden or a park is quite refreshing and educative. With the increase of population in towns and cities, open spaces are becoming very rare. Gardens, grounds and lawns are the lungs of a modern city. I like going to the garden and spending some time in the beautiful company of nature. A garden is place of beauty. It presents a feast of joy before us. There is a beautiful garden just in front of my house. Its shady trees seem to invite me during the summers and its green sunny lawns catch my eyes in the winter season. There are row of roses that attract the eyes of the beholder. I enjoy a stroll in the garden both in the morning and in the evening. At that time I forget all the worries of life. In the middle of the garden, there is a fountain and a small tank. The tank teems with colored fish of various kinds. Children flock to the tank and play with the fish. The garden also serves as a nest of singing birds. Many beautiful birds perch in the trees in the evening and pour out their melodious songs. In the morning the fragrance of the flowers lends a sweet charm to the whole atmosphere. On a moonlit night, the garden presents a beautiful scene. Many people visit the garden at different hours of the day. We have really a good time in the garden which is veritably a paradise on the earth.

A Municipal Park
There is a municipal park in our town. It is situated a few kilometres away from my house.”I visit it on Sundays and holidays.
The particular park which I have mentioned here, is quite a big one. It is situated near the bus stand. That is perhaps not quite proper as one cannot sit and have rest there in perfectly calm atmosphere.
Still, the park is of great value. It is rightly said that the parks and gardens are the lungs of towns and cities. If parks were not there, the urban areas would be no better than hell. In the urban areas the atmosphere is highly polluted and it is hard to breathe there. It is only the parks and gardens and other open spaces that provide some relief to the tired nerves and smoke-filled lungs of people.
The park has a number of grassy plots and flower beds. It has a circular passage for those who want to walk or have a race. There is a
tall fountain in the middle of the park. It keeps playing all the while except from midnight to dawn. There are a number of benches in the park. Mostly old people and children visit the park. During the examination days some students may be seen sitting on benches and cramming their lessons. Two gardeners are there to take care of the park. People are not allowed to bring eatables in the park. In one corner of the park there are some devices such as roundabouts, etc. for children. In the evening, some housewives may also be seen having a walk on the circular path. I mostly have a light exercise in the park early in the morning. I only wish that there should be more parks in all towns and more attention should be paid to them by all concerned.

Pleasantville Biblical Refrences Essay
1108 WordsJan 7th, 20115 Pages
The movie “Pleasantville” (Produced and directed by Gary Ross in 1988) is more than just your ordinary film. Pleasantville sends a message within a message. Not only is it a great film, (made popular by New Line Cinema) it contains numerous biblical references. Some of the biblical references in this film may be easier to see and understand than others. But when asked to analyze this film and critique the biblical references you will understand just how many there are.
To me the most obvious relation to the bible is in a scene where the main character David (Tobey Maguire) is the first to see a fire that breaks out in a tree in his front yard. Ironically enough, the tree is on fire, but is not consumed by the flames, it’s burning but…show more content…
The serpent eventually persuades Eve to eat from the “Tree of Knowledge”. After she eats from it, she has Adam eat from it. Shortly after, they finally notice they are naked and become self conscious and cover up. God then asks about what they have done and Eve blames Adam, while Adam blames the Serpent. God curses them, and makes Eve suffer through labor and banishes both of them from the Garden of Eden. The relation in the movies comes from a scene in the end involving David and another girl from his school. Color starts to fill Pleasantville, and the girl he is sitting with in the lawn gets up and grabs a fruit of off the tree, and then she hands the fruit to David to eat, much like Eve did with Adam. As soon as they ate the fruit, it started to rain in Pleasantville for the first time ever, symbolizing God’s anger, and color now completely filled Pleasantville. The discovery in books also reminds me of the “Tree of Knowledge of good and evil”, the books being good, and the reading of them being evil because it made people curious to as what else was out in the real world. Therefore there is an effect in both cases, the biblical one, and also the movie.
Pleasantville, (before David and Jennifer) is a “dream world” if you will, everyone is always happy and there are never any conflicts with anyone. Once the two of them arrive however, everything changes. In Pleasantville everything is black and white, but after Jennifer has sex
