8. Sheikh Saadi and the Noble man
Sheikh Saadi was a great poet of Iran. The king of Iran used to invite the great poet very often to his court. Once on his way to the king’s court, the poet took shelter in a noble man’s house for a night. He was then in very simple dress. The nobleman could not recognize him and did not treat him warmly as it seemed to him that Saadi was a poor and ordinary man. However, Saadi noticed it but did not mind or disclose his identity. Then in the morning he left the nobleman’s house and reached the king’s court and while returning he was putting on a gorgeous and expensive rich dress. This time also he stopped at the same nobleman’s house. Surprisingly he found that he was duly respected and honoured then. He was served with sumptuous dinner. Noticing it, Saadi began to put the food into his pockets. The man asked him why he was putting the foods into his pockets. In reply he said to him, ‘This food is for my dress. You are treating me well, because I have rich dress on.’ At this the man felt ashamed and begged forgiveness of the poet.
9. Environment Pollution
Environment indicates to the air, water land in which people, animals and plants live. So The main ingredients of the environment are human beings, animals, plants, air water, soil etc. The natural forces such as storms, cyclones and earth quakes are also treated as a part of this. Environment pollution refers polluting the elements of the environment. At present environment pollution is a burning question. It is an international problem. It has become one of the major problems in Bangladesh. The environmentalists of our country express their great apprehension about our future environment and its results. Excessive population is the reason for the destruction of our valuable forests day by day. It is being polluted for want of sufficient forest resource. Unplanned massive industrialization is another cause of environment pollution. Smoking from mills and factories carries the pollutants which are responsible for environment pollution. Smoke coming from motor vehicles also pollutes air. Again, the waste products of the mills and factories are thrown into water, which causes pollution of water. The insecticides used in the fields of crops get mixed with the nearby water bodies and pollute our environment. Environment pollution is changing the climate of this globe gradually and dangerously. Many serious diseases are being caused by this. We must be conscious of this fact and try to remove this problem soon. The government should take all necessary steps in order to improve this condition.

I received your letter last week. I am extremely sorry for late reply. In your letter you wanted to know about the picnic that I have recently enjoyed with my friends at a place of historical interest. Here is a description for you about the picnic. I along with my friends make a plan for visiting the Sonargaown. There was an exclusive arrangement of food and drink for lunch. On February 20, we started from Dhaka by bus. Reaching there at first we started to watch the ancient places with great attention. I took some photographs as a memorable memory for the days to come. As I have the experience about the place I assist my friends to show the relics. Actually, we spend a happy moment and its impression will remain evergreen on my mind.
That’s all for now. No more today. Please write to me as early as possible. Convey my regards to your parents and love to younger.
