The Borneo Post - Good English - - Short Story Section -

Suresh: Look at the num­ber of home­less peo­ple on the streets. It’s sad to see them ly­ing around with­out a home to go back to.

Alvin I wish there was a way to stamp out poverty.

Suresh: Isn’t the gov­ern­ment re­spon­si­ble for this mat­ter?

Alvin: Well, I think the gov­ern­ment is try­ing to work out a pro­gramme for them, but you know, the re­spon­si­bil­ity also lies with all of us. We must not turn a blind eye to the sit­u­a­tion. Ex­pla­na­tion: Stamp out - to get rid of some­thing that is wrong or harm­ful

Ex­am­ple: The new leg­is­la­tion is in­tended to stamp out child pros­ti­tu­tion.
