Road accidents have become very common in our country. We find the news of many road accidents in the dailies. Most of the mishaps take place for careless driving. No one can say that he will reach home without being injured by accident. It seems that all the roads have been made only for the drivers of the automobiles and they are given license to do what they like. The police on duty do not perform their job sincerely. They seem to ignore the fitness of the vehicles. "Safe Road" is now the demand of the people. We do not want to have anybody lament for his/her dear ones due to road accident. So, the concerned authorities should enforce the traffic rules strictly and give maximum punishment to the reckless drivers. The traffic police on duty should be instructed to be more active.

There are a huge number of books on various subjects. The main thing about a book fair is not sale but display of books on different subjects by different writers. Specially the new writers want to start their career from a book fair. The fair remains open from 10 am. People of all ages come to visit the fair. Usually the fair becomes crowded in the evening and it becomes flooded on Friday. The writers also visit book fair. The young stars rushed to the book fair where they can see their favorite writer. They relentlessly peruse the writer to give autograph. The writer's presence increases the sale of the book. In a book fair there are also some food stalls and tea stalls. The visitors can take rest for a while in the food stalls and can take snacks and tea. But some times these pollute the environment because of mismanagement. In the evening, Bangla Academy arranges some cultural programmers which give extra attraction to the fair. Seminars and symposiums are also held in a book fair. Famous writers and eminent persons of our country participate in those seminars. Thus a book fair plays a vital role to enlighten a nation.

He wanted to get rid of it. One day he fled from his master’s house and took shelter in a cave. In the evening a lion entered the cave. He seemed wounded. It was so severe that he was groaning. He came near the lion. He took the lion’s paw in his hand and removed a big thorn from it. The lion was relived of his pain.
