You were supposed to receive a friend at the airport. But, for some reasons you are unable to do so. Write a letter to your friend. In your letter
– explain why you can’t come,
– guide them regarding other options to get to your home,
– describe the plans/visits you made to show them around when your friend arrives.
I believe your preparations to come to India are in full swing. I am eagerly waiting to see you on Thursday evening. As discussed earlier, I had promised to collect you from the airport but unfortunately I would not be able to keep my words due to an unplanned official meeting.
Just yesterday my boss informed me about an urgent meeting of foreign delegates that will take place on the coming Thursday, the day of your arrival. I have been asked to give a presentation too. In this case, it won’t possible for me to reach the airport as we had planned earlier. Don’t worry. The airport has an excellent taxi service. My suggestion for you would be to take a cab from the airport to reach my home. You can book a cab online or hire one from outside the airport.
I just can’t wait to see you and I have planned many things for your stay. I have reserved seats for a get-together with our college friends in the ‘Memories Café on Friday evening. On Saturday, we would go shopping and enjoy the street food of Delhi. We will plan the rest of days as per your preferences.
We are living in the 21st century and the world has never been younger. With a huge number of population to be young, the world is moving at a different pace. However, with the younger generation in action, most people complain that the millennials often do not listen to their predecessors.
You should spend 40 minutes on this task.
It is believed that young people have too much freedom and they don’t pay attention to the older people’s advice. Do you agree or disagree?

The world is changing at a rapid pace and thus the difference between people born in different times is inevitable. Individuals with a mere difference of few years tend to sometimes have completely different opinions. This clash often leads people to come in the denial mode. Most people believe that the younger generation has been given a lot of freedom and they rarely listen to the elder people’s advice.
Millenials as we know they are independent individuals with access to the world that happens at a click of a button. With knowledge at their hand, they have become more enlightened of the things of past, which they disagree with. For instance, a person believing that a woman should be allowed to work outside, will less likely to listen to someone who disagrees with it.
Even more, most of the younger people tend to have an entrepreneurial mind while older generation was more loyal towards a single employer. So, when the elder generation tries stopping them or advises them, they often go into the denial mode.
The human race is constantly evolving and there is a change in the ideologies of people belonging to different generations. It is only through understanding the changes and the present scenarios can generations be able to share their experiences and creativity.
Do children behave better when they are rewarded or punished? Discuss both views and give your opinion.
You should write at least 250 words.
The most impactful years in the lives of person are that of childhood. It is in these years that one forms impressions and the experiences shape the nature and behavior of the child. Some people believe that a child must be punished for a wrongdoing while others believe that one must shape an individual through rewards.
Rewards and recognition are the positive pillars to motivate a person. When a child gets a reward for speaking well or discipline or cleanliness, it motivates him or her to do it more. Even more, the child gets to know the importance of the good things he or she is doing in life. Even more, complementing children for their excellence boosts their self-esteem and help them become better individuals.
However, punishments have their own impact on the lives of an individual. Children refrain from doing an activity in fear of receiving punishment. For instance, if a child was abstained from having chocolate because of a mistake he or she did, there will be a realisation on why the things are not right. Punishing must not mean physical or mental torture, if done with care it brings in the realisation more than fear.
Overall, growing years are formative years of a child life and both rewards and punishment are necessary. In my opinion, a child must get both but what is more important is the realisation of things from rewards and recognition.

You should write at least 150 words.
For the past one year, I had been working to get past through the interview of IIMC and I am thankful that we were in it together. From photography to video editing, getting the interviews done, you have helped me whenever I needed it.
Last week was my meeting and I know if it was not for the professional emergency you would have been with me on the day of the discussion. The interview started with the documentaries that we had made together and they loved the “The Women in White” the most. Moving on there were questions about the photographs and the articles.
You would be happy to know that I have been selected and if it was not for you, I don’t think it was possible. Your help with the camera and the proofreading of articles, more importantly, the emotional support made me go with it.
