    @Sanjeev Gupta
    That is a sweet little list of sentences that you have framed with the given phrases. As this discussion purports to improve our English, I would like to point out the tiny mistakes that you made in your third sentence. Firstly, "cannot" cannot be written as "can not. " Secondly, you probably forgot to add an "s" at the end of "meal. " As you have mentioned "two" before it, the noun becomes plural.
    I know that this discussion is about learning good English but I would like to share my opinion on what you might do about your fifth sentence. Can you go on working by starving yourself for an entire day and the next? That is the case with beggars. We don't think straight when we are hungry when we get back home from a rough day. What do you expect from someone who hasn't eaten a proper meal for days? What you can do about this would be to feed them and direct them to a work that you think would best suit them. They will be grateful to you for life.
