Do you like to take photographs?

I am not a professional photographer and my interests vary for a career. However, I do like clicking photographs from my iPhone, either when I am travelling or at parties. For me, photographs are a mere collection of the memories made which I often display at my house of social media account. Taking those crazy pictures, sometimes hazy fill me with joy and remind me of the great times I had.

Would you like to study photography?

Presently not. I think there is already a lot on my plate. With a job at a corporate and being a freelancer leaves very little time for any learning. Also, my focus right now is on improving my writing and speaking skills. Having said that, photography is something I would love to learn but in the distant future and not immediately

How often do you take photographs?

Technology has made life so much simpler and convenient. With the smart phones, I believe it has become easier for everyone to actually capture amazing photos. The different modes that the present day smart phones give to its users for clicking photos can actually make anyone crazy and it surely has had an impact on me as well. I do almost always prefer clicking photos rather than taking notes. Like, photos of presentations or a note I’d like to remember. Could also be the times when giving farewell or any other party or of nature. I do click photos from my iPhone just about the moment I feel like clicking one.

Do you take photographs of yourself?

Not very often, I would say, but yes I do. Especially, when I have to go to a party, I click photos from my phone just to make sure that I am looking good. Also, it may sound funny, but I do take my snaps when I am sad. The moment I see myself depressed I cheer up. It is my way of fighting back and reminding myself that life is beautiful. And then there are times when I am bored. So, I usually go to those crazy Instagram features and make funny faces and take pictures.

Do you have any good family photographs?

Very few I must say. And from the ones that we have, most of them are really crazy! Almost all of them have at least one of us making a weird face. But, there is a photograph of ours where my parents are holding me and my brother in their arms and we are smiling solemnly and are parents are looking at each other. It really makes me feel good and is framed and kept in the house.

dream job IELTS Band7 Dehradun


My graduation is in bachelors in Technology with IT as the major. Studying computers for four years,  most probably it will be an IT company that I go and join. There is a pool of IT companies in the present work environment, but I prefer coding and so most likely will be working with a product based company. The job profile is of a software developer and we would be working mostly on building products. Making either products or websites using different languages.

To be short listed for a job at an IT firm, a person needs to hold a degree in Computer Science or Information Technology. But, apart from the kind of education they receive, the most important thing is the individual must have logical and critical reasoning power along with certain computer skills.To gain these skills, I have even signed up for an online python course to ensure that I do know things about python and use the language to build strong codes.

In terms of focussed companies, I am looking forward to placements at Flipkart because there is more of web development in there and my knowledge of Python and HTML may help them to create better UI designs.


IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample Questions # Living Healthily

Health is one of the most important aspects of our lives and although we tend to ignore it more often, it still remains the backbone of everything we achieve in our lives. This time we are talking about some recent questions asked in Part 3 of the IELTS Speaking about living healthily.

  • Do you think people pay enough attention to their health today?

Times have changed, I believe. There was a time when people stopped caring about their health but I believe in recent times, people have again become more aware of their health. Most people prefer doing some sort of physical activity in their lives to make sure they are healthy. When making small decisions like the food they prefer, people are going for, much healthier foods.

  • What costs are involved when you are ill in your country?

It depends on the kind of hospital we go for. The government hospitals are way too cheaper than the private ones. Also, having medical insurance and things in place, cost does become less. However, for the daily workers, the cost of getting ill is usually high.

  • Do you think most people worry more about their health as they get older?

Definitely yes. I think as the person starts getting old, they start getting the signs of bad health. It is during that time that people realise the importance of health. So, one can see a lot of old people going out for walks or jogging.

  • How can people be encouraged to stay healthy?

The best way a person can be encouraged to stay healthy is by talk and promotion using advertisements. So, if there are few who get motivated by it, then there are others who start following. Also, one can motivate others to be healthy by adopting a healthy lifestyle for themselves.

  • What are the most popular ways of keeping healthy in your country?

The ways by which people stay healthy in my country is usually divided into age groups and sometimes their income as well. So, the younger group is usually found in the gym or playing a sport. With age, the older generation prefers walking or jogging along with nature. With different income groups, the higher ones usually have their personal trainers, while the middle of the lower finds out ways for themselves.

  • Why do you think some people continue bad habits when they know that they are damaging to their health?

The only reason that people have for continuing their bad habits is that they have become their habit and as they say bad habits die hard. So, even when people know that it is harming them it is quite tough to stop doing things that they have inculcated in their routines for a long period of time.

  • Do women pay more attention to their health than men?

In my country, women are always more concerned about their men and their family more than they are about themselves. But as an individual, I think yes, a woman make sure that she does not indulge herself into the habits that are not good for her health.

  • Do you think people have become more health conscious in recent years?

In my opinion, yes people have become more health conscious. It could be because of the influence of their favourite stars or the images that are being portrayed. Even more, with advancement in technology people have very less to do physically, so there has a sense of consciousness among people for their health.

  • How can children learn to have a healthy lifestyle?

The best way a child can be taught to have a healthy lifestyle is by showing them how to have one. If we as a society in large, will try to be healthy, every child will adapt to it. Like, a child learns about cigarette only when he or she sees someone lighting a cigarette and likewise if he or she sees someone leading a healthy life, he or she will lead one for himself or herself.

  • Do you think the government should promote a healthy lifestyle among the citizens?

I think yes there should be campaigns by the government for a healthy lifestyle but I also believe that government can only do a certain part to it. It always boils down to the individuals if they want to go for it or not.

  • Would you say modern science and technology has more of a positive or a negative influence on people’s health?

There are many ways in which modern science and technology have helped, like in curing diseases and making operations better and more successful. However, there have been some negative impacts as well, I believe if we keep focusing on the positive impacts, the negative will surely become minimal.



IELTS Speaking Sample Questions # Health

Health is wealth! This is one of the most common phrases that we come across in our lives. However, we often ignore the most important aspect of our lives i.e. health. This time we are looking at some of the sample speaking questions asked in a recent IELTS exam related to health.

Do you have any unhealthy habits?

Sadly, a big yes. My work demands are as such that for most days coming back home is around 10 pm. By then, I don’t have much time for food and sometimes go to bed either an empty stomach or on ready meals. Coming back at 10 also means it takes around 2 till I sleep which also means I have no time for breakfast because I need to reach office as well. But, with time I am trying to make changes to my routine.

In what ways do you try to stay healthy?

For past few months, health has been the least of my priority and there is not much that I have done for it. But, in recent times, I have started jogging and also make sure that I do take the three meals of the day. There are certain things like milk and chapatti that I ensure are in my meal and also take proper breaks while working. In few months, I will be fit as a fiddle.

Is it easy to keep fit where you live?

Presently, I am living in Bhubaneswar, the capital of an Eastern state Orissa in my country. It is a pleasant city with a beautiful environment. With less of traffic and more of parks and greenery, even a walk or a jog in the near by park helps me to be more fit.

What do you think is more important: eating healthy or doing exercise?

In my opinion, doing exercise is more important than eating healthy. One cannot always eat healthily or eat the best food. But exercising ensures that even if there is an up or down in the kind of food, a person stays healthy.

What do you think are the health benefits of playing a sport?

A sport not only helps in the improvement of the health of an individual, it also ensures mental fitness amongst individuals. Learning a sport increases the learnability in an individual because there are different tricks and traps to be learned. The one who is able to master it can grasp lot many things in life faster. This ensures well being in the life of the person.

Have you ever had any habits which you consider unhealthy?

Looking back, there have been many habits I would discard straight away. One of them would be having alcohol; the other being smoking. Apart from these extremes, I had a habit of waking up late and skipping meals. Although, they don’t sound as major as the former, skipping meals surely has a psychological effect on our lives.

Do you think more about your health now than when you were younger?

Definitely yes. Earlier, it was my mother who was concerned about my health but now, it has all come upon me. Initially, there was a carelessness with this self-responsibility. But, with time, I have realised the importance of health and ensure that I do follow certain healthy habits in my daily routine.
