Essay Idea only. Not a complete essay.
In this kind of essay, it is preferable to write on one side with a balance paragraph, which means one or two paragraph on the another side to demonstrate your broader perspective on the topic. In other words, it is like writing for both side, but with greater weight for one side and lower weight for another side.

Actually, if you answer naturally then most probably your answer will be like that, rather than the other way around. That is because some governments are successful in meeting most of the expectations of its people, while some governments are successful to meet only a few expectations of its people. Still, these are not the only scenarios and you could come up with a number of other perspectives.

The answer has to entirely focus to the people's expectation from government of your country and how far those expectations have been met. For instance, my country is Nepal and hence my analysis will be based upon the analysis of Government of Nepal's ability to meet expectations of Nepalese people.

In your intro, your thesis statement might look like:

"In my country X, the government has been successful in maintaining healthy rate of infrastructural development, and good governance even though it could not maintain unemployment level below the promised rate of Y% (say 5%, for instance)."

So, you can discuss about government's expenditure on infrastructures:

"People expected the current government to build transport facilities, especially the electricity run trains, in all the major cities of the country in order to reduce transportation cost, carbon emission (or pollution), and road accidents due to road congestion. People's need in this area was fulfilled in due time by establishing the XYZ railway service and bringing it into operation."

You can similarly discuss on the areas of unemployment, inflation, tax policy, investment-friendly climate, education, health, and so on. Take up a simple topic that is relevant and explain the people's position, and the government's action regarding it. Give a final conclusion by assessing whether people's expectations have been materialised or not.

Consider the view that the key to good health is not medicine, but lifestyle

"Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing, not merely an absence of disease or infirmity." - World Health Organization.

This definition of health in its broadest sense implies that curing of physical diseases and abnormalities alone cannot earn us a good health. Can medicines go beyond curing diseases, to improve our health on the mental and social grounds? The medicines for the mental diseases, like depression, might improve our mental and social health to some extent; however, good health in its broadest sense can only be achieved through improved lifestyle.

Probable Questions for October/November 2015

A continuity to the Tradition: Like in the past, I am attempting to predict (so to say) questions that could show up in the upcoming October/November examination of 2015.

Disclaimer First: These predictions are in no way scientific or really probable.

Justification: However, these could be some topics you could brainstorm and practice upon, in order to prepare for your General Paper exams.

To what extent participating in online social networks improve our work and personal lives?

Note: This is not a complete GP essay, but will help you brainstorm to write one.

First of all, it is important to understand that social networks are neutral - neither good nor bad - in themselves! So, whether they improve our work and personal lives is based upon how we use them. Thus, there are ways they can ruin or improve our lives.

Personal lives Social networks help us connect with our friends, kin and relatives even when we don't have time to meet them physically, or even when they are located far away. Social media mediates our social relationships. We are updated about our near and dear ones on regular basis thus, our social bonds remain strong.
