PART 1 – INTRO PART
What is your full name?
My name is Mehnoor Kaur.
How may I address you?
You may address me as Mehnoor.
How do you feel about birds? (Why do you feel that way?)
I feel that birds are very special. They are beautiful creations of God. They add diversity to nature.
How do Indian people feel about birds?
India is a diverse country. Everyone has different feelings. Some love birds, and keep them as pets. Others just admire them flying in the sky. Some even eat birds.
Have you seen many different kinds of birds? (Near your home)
Yes, I have seen many different birds. Apart from the birds I see routinely around my house, I have seen peacocks in my neighboring village. I have also seen some rare birds, in the Chhattbir zoo. There were different varieties of parrots and the ostrich and emu over there.
Do any birds have any particular significance in India? For example, does India have a national bird?
Yes, peacock is our national bird. It is a beautiful bird. The male looks very beautiful with its plumes spread out.
Do you think birds should be protected? (Why? / Why not? How can they be protected?)
Yes, definitely. They are beautiful creations of nature. They add diversity to our environment. Apart from that, they are the best pollinators. Also, birds eat insects. That is why crops are protected. They are part of our ecological chain. We all know that if any link of our ecological chain is not there, then the whole ecology can collapse.
PART – 2 CUE CARD
Describe a uniform you wear (at your school or company)
– When you wear it?
– Who bought it for you?
– What does it look like?
– How you feel about it?
I think in many schools and workplaces, uniforms are a thing of the past. They are useful in some customer facing jobs where it’s important to be able to quickly identify who is a member of staff and who is a customer. Sometimes if a customer is wearing something that resembles a company’s uniform they may end up being mistaken for an employee, and this has happened to me in the past.
Many companies today have a dress code rather than a strict uniform. They’ll describe roughly what is acceptable and what is unacceptable, and rely on common sense and the manager’s guidance to interpret it. For example, a bartender may be required to wear jeans and a black T-shirt, but aside from these two requirements, what employees can actually wear will be fairly flexible.
Schools that do have uniforms are usually quite strict about it. They want everyone to look the same, and any deviation will often result in the student being reprimanded by teachers or the head teacher. I know of a few cases where the pupil has been sent home because they showed up wearing the wrong clothes.
The last time I had to wear a uniform was at a private school I attended. It was a very formal uniform that resembled a business suit. The jacket, which was only worn in the cooler months, had the school’s logo embroidered on it. During summer the jacket was no longer required, and instead a short sleeved polo shirt was required. On the hottest days we were allowed to forego the tie too.
Some students tried to put their own spin on the uniform by tying their tie so that it was extremely short or ridiculously long. This didn’t last for long, and a memo was sent to parents reminding them of the guidelines.
Looking back on it, I think the uniform was a little ridiculous. I’m not entirely sure what it was designed to achieve, and very few students were a fan of it. For some parents, the uniform was just an extra cost that, on top of the tuition fee, made sending their kids to this school even more burdensome.
PART – 3 FOLLOW UPS
Why should students wear uniforms?
Uniforms have a lot of advantages. Firstly, it teaches them about discipline and equality which are important qualities to learn in the childhood.
On what occasion should people wear uniforms?
I don’t think people should wear uniform for particular occasion because it would be wastage of money. Buying a uniform that one would wear for a single occasion does not make a lot sense to me but if people wear it every day in the school or army it serves a better purpose.
Should companies ask employees about the design of their uniforms?
Yes, companies should definitely do that because when employees will participate in the designing process they will have more respect for their uniforms. They will have a sense of ownership and hence they will wear it more proudly.
Can people tell someone’s personality by his or her clothes?
I think it is very difficult to judge someone’s personality by looking at what they are wearing. Every individual is different, some like fashion and some do not. So a person wearing simple clothes could be a highly intellectual person or could be an average guy. We can only find out once we talk to them.
