HOME LIFE BETTER THAN HOSTEL LIFE
Tariq came home during Break for about a week, and met his friends whom he had not been able to meet during the last 2-3 months, as he was staying in the hostel. He was daily surrounded by them, as they were also equally keen to learn from him about his new experiences at the college as well as the playground.
One day one of his friends expressed a wish to be in a hostel, whereupon Tariq had to remark that he was not right in wishing for the hostel life, as home life was far better than the hostel life. He had various points in support of his belief. These are some of the important arguments put forward by him.
Early in the morning, when one gets up one finds either father or mother, or some brother, sister or other near and dear one in a home, while in the hostel it is the same room-mate or a bearer carrying a tray with cups full of cold tea. You feel like greeting your parents or someone other, while in a hostel you are terribly annoyed with the servants disturbing your sleep, early in the morning.
Then for cleaning, sweeping or for your meals, you have to struggle a lot, as no one appears to be the least bothered about you, or your friends. There, every thing is so routine.
In the evening also you generally do not get your hot cup of milk, coffee or tea, or you have to remind the servant, day in and day out for your share of meals.
One misses the home life most in a hostel, especially on the eve of festivals, as it is not always possible to go home during every vacation, long or short. The friends and relatives are missed the most.
Whether it is meals or sleep, games or study, cleanliness or comfort, home life is better than hostel life
