A hobby is a useful work done for pleasure. It keeps us busy in our leisure time. It refreshes our minds and adds color to our life. Life is meaningless without a hobby. Different people have different hobbies. Some people like stamp- collecting, while others like paintings, music, reading books, watching T.V., and swimming. When I was a child, I had great interest in watching cricket on television and playing cricket became my hobby slowly. I am a great fan of an Indian cricket team, which I always watched on T.V.
