Creative Writing Lesson: How to Write an "Autobiography of Road"? Model for Writing Class for EFL Students


 Writing a Topic Paragraph:

Early stage:
Men write their autobiographies then why do I not? I am a road at Lake Town in Kolkata. I don’t know whether I should be proud of my present stage or feel sad for that. Let's know who am I? I'm a Road, path established over land for the passage of vehicles, people, and animals. Roads provide dependable pathways for moving people and goods from one place to another.
They range in quality from dirt paths to concrete-paved multi-lane highways. At my early stage the surroundings were not so crowded. There were ponds and in the midst of that there was a colony thinly populated. I was not then even metal led as now.  Roads are used by various forms of transportation, such as trucks, automobiles, buses, motorcycles, and bicycles. Roads allow trucks to move goods from points of production, such as fields and factories, directly to markets and shopping centers. Private individuals rely on roads for safe and efficient automobile, motorcycle, and bicycle travel. Fire departments, medical services, and other government agencies depend on an organized system of roads to provide emergency services to the public in times of need.

Building A Storyline:

Reformation: Day by day, I have reformed not only metal; I have been wandering how street lights have been posted to make me lighted all the night with various kinds of shops and houses, some of them multi –stored are now on either side of my stretching.  

Accidents and Occurrences: One day serious accidents took place at about 10am. A school bus of 15 A was run over by a private bus. The school bus was coming at high speed when the ill footed boy was crossing the road. The private bus was also coming up at high speed . Unfortunately a book dropped from the ill footed boy  and he stood to pack it up. The passersby raised shouts of alarm. The driver tried his best to stop but could not cheek the speed in time. The boy,  buses and his body become a lump of flesh in a hospital and I don’t know what happened afterwords.

Daily Routine: My daily routine is now busy from dawn to midnight. Though vehicles are few in morning, morning-walkers come out for strolling on my sight in the wee hours of the day. Then the children come for schooling accompanied by there parents. With the progress of the day. Shops open the doors and number of vehicles increase. Expectantly in the pack house for the office goes from 9 to 11 am. I feel sad when I look my deplorable bemoaning condition with so many potholes condition especially during the rainy season. It becomes a danger to the traffic. But the buses, Lorries, taxis and minibus are running at breakneck speed causing terror  to passerby. The drivers very often try to time over take other vehicles and sometimes collide with one another causing fatal accidents and autos pay little head to traffic signals.

Bright Sides: I have been hearing from time to time  about several schemes to improve traffic system but so far there has been no considerable improvement. I should draw attention another important point traffic jam. Almost every day long processions are brought out which dislocated the traffic system and put the people to much harassment by paralyzing the normal city life. Actually Kolkata has developed gradually to her present condition. Hence, various misconceptions about her origin and development arose. As for example, though the Howrah Bridge was designed by Rajendranath Mukherjee a Bengali engineer it is partly believed that it was entirely built by British. I can’t but tell you some incident that I wines off and on only the other say a gun battle erupted in the morning as real gangs fought each other for control of the market. The two gangs so desperate that they did not bother for the cover of night and clashed at day light and men women and children ran for finding some shelter. The violence went on for an hour, but police were nowhere seen.




Eminent People: I have many important places around road in Kolkata. It is one of homes of the oldest buildings . Herein lies on the grave the magnificent tomb of Job Charnock so long believed to be the founder of Kolkata three hundred years ago but a recent high court judgment reverse that the name of Kolkata occurred in historic writing like A-I-N Akbar and Manasa Mangal. They were written much earlier than three hundred years. st John’s church reminds me of this heart the ebbing turning point of the history turning point of the history of Kolkata of which I am a proud resident. So I like the st. John’s church the most.

Bad Sides: The road and footpath was littered with used plastic materials and other disposable things. there were no dustbin to store them. we found none taking responsibility for maintenance of cleanliness made the spot a vicious circle. Hundreds of people including children rush to this beauty spot and return with the germs of various diseases is their bodies. Even the animals are badly treated by the keepers of them. The personnel entrusted with the guidance of the spectators are of no use. Their negligence and shocking behavior pains everybody. The grounds were littered with used plastic materials and other disposable thing. There is also no control over hooliganism of the miscreants and therefore The peace –loving spectators are physically and mentally disturbed ever now and then. I apprehend if these conditions continue this popular spot will go astray no time and the pride of Kolkata road lost. In the circumstances I would draw your attention to this grave issue and to write an editorial note so that the director rise to the occasion and compel the workers to perform their duties well. The government should also be insisted on taking strong action against all defaulting workers including the police force. The government should also be insisted on taking strong action. The neat for stride supervision and maintenance to eliminate the dirty unhappy condition of the zoo is the most vital. You should also underline the issue of a constant campaign. You should also underline awareness about the responsibility of the spectators for cleanliness and this will surely be more effective than any loyal action. The voluntary organizations may also arrange meeting and processions to rouse the conscience of the people at large. I hope you will kindly focus these issues of public interest through your mighty pen to make our dear zoo a road on earth again.

Introspection:

Future Hope: However, there are some bright sides in my life. I have been able to establish communication in various aspects of people Some go to hospital through my heart to save a patient’s life; some others go to school, collage and office for their daily business. What I fervently hope now is that there will be no accident, no violence, no humiliations of women. I hope you will kindly focus this issue of public. Interest through your mighty pen to make our dear zoo a road on earth. Again, there is also no control over hooliganism of the miscreants and therefore every now and then I apprehend if these conditions continue, this popular spot will go astray in no time and the pride of road in Kolkata will be lost.

Ending: 

Conclusion: Thus we may conclude that writing an autobiography helps the power of creatively and imagination which play an important part in it. So it may be said that the information given in an autobiography may not be true always as the author has the liberty to exaggerate an idea in his own way. The author personalizes that object in his own way. Thus an autobiography develops the personal insight of the writer. It colours the whole subject. So it is suggested that the author should consult various sources for writing an autobiography. So there may develop a similarity between the objective and the conceptions. It surely represents our aesthetic sense and develops our power of imagination.
