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.

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)
Impacts of Excessive Video Game Playing
Video games have been around for more than 30 years. But only in the past 15 years have people started to pay attention to the correlation between video games and mental health.
Excessive gaming is connected to mental health problems such as:
- Social anxiety
- Lack of motivation
- Poor emotional regulation
- Interpersonal conflict
- Suicidal thoughts
On the other hand, some studies show that video games can improve your mental health if you play in moderation – the keyword here is gaming in moderation.
This article analyzes the effects of video games on your mental health and offers suggestions on where you can get help if gaming is impacting your health.
Effects of Video Games on Your Mental Health
When we talk about video games and mental health, you must know that we primarily consider the mental health effects of excessive gaming.
In moderation, playing video games may not have strong negative effects on mental health.
A study by Oxford University shows that gaming in moderation and a controlled environment may improve one’s mental well-being.
Some people might find the results of this study surprising, especially considering that many prior studies have linked gaming with negative effects on mental health.
However, one key thing to note here is an isolated study where gamers played the prosocial game Animal Crossing for four hours a day. The truth is that the gaming habits of most addicted gamers are much different. They play other, more addictive games that are also more toxic, and many gamers play for more than four hours a day.
The more you play, the more you may neglect other aspects of your life. And this also means that the more your mental well-being is going to suffer. Furthermore, the negative effects of excessive video gaming on mental health are supported by hundreds of anecdotal stories from our members who have suffered from gaming addiction.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at the most common effects of gaming on mental health.
8. Write an essay describing one of your favorite food items. Write it in about 200 words mentioning its look, smell, taste, feel, etc. (8)
My Favorite Food: Momos
Momos are a type of steamed dumpling that is popular in Nepal, Tibet, and other parts of Asia. They are made with a dough of flour and water, and they are filled with a variety of ingredients, such as meat, vegetables, or cheese. Momos are typically steamed or boiled, and they are often served with a dipping sauce.
I love momos because they are delicious and versatile. The dough is soft and chewy, and the filling can be customized to your liking. I especially like momos that are filled with meat, such as chicken or beef. The meat is usually cooked with spices, and it gives the momos a flavorful and savory taste.
I also love the smell of momos cooking. The spices and the steamy dough create a delicious aroma that is hard to resist. When I smell momos cooking, I immediately start to salivate.
The taste of momos is also amazing. The dough is soft and chewy, and the filling is flavorful and savory. The dipping sauce adds a touch of acidity and heat, which perfectly complements the flavors of the momos.
I also love the feel of momos in my mouth. The dough is soft and chewy, and the filling is juicy and flavorful. When I bite into a momo, I get a burst of deliciousness that is hard to beat.
Momos are one of my favorite foods, and I could eat them every day. They are delicious, versatile, and affordable. If you have never tried momos, I highly recommend them. You won't be disappointed!
