SAMPLE ANSWER

Photographs are possibly the best way to capture a moment and retain it for a longer period of time. Here, I’d like to talk about a family photograph which is hung on the wall of my living room. It is the most cherished memory I have with my family.

This photograph was taken about 10 years ago when I was a kid. It was clicked in a park where I went for a picnic with my parents and grandparents. We were sitting on the grass which was cut in a fine pattern. The garden in the photograph was in full bloom the time we visited there, so the background of this picture emphasizes a rich riot of colours. All of us were very happy that day. As my grandfather loved singing, so to make this picnic special he started singing an old Bollywood song for my grandmother. The picture reveals that she was blushing at that moment.

I was sitting on the lap of my grandmother wearing a graphic t-shirt paired with capri pants and matching shoes. My father was laughing seeing my grandmother bashful on hearing the song. The photograph was clicked by my mother, so she’s not present in the picture.

The photograph is probably special to me in its own way, as my grandparents are not alive anymore and whenever I look at this picture, it gives me a mixed feeling of happiness and sadness. This is the most treasured reminder of my deceased grandparents which I’d preserve for the rest of my life.

Sample Answer

Dear Asha,

I hope you are doing well. It has been ages since I wrote to you. I was very busy with my board examinations. It is a big step towards my future. It seems to me as if the whole world is gearing up for a new beginning with unexpectedly surprising measures.

As for India, we are all demonetizing our ₹500 and ₹1,000 notes to battle black money. The expected amount to be ‘found’ is around £200 Billion GBP. Just take a moment to soak that all in. This is a gigantic move for India as sadly there is a lot of bribery and black money handling. Heck, every single person in India could be a mini millionaire if all of its wealth were to be distributed equally among its citizens.

Honestly, from my point of view the situation is pretty hilarious. As just yesterday people were trying to rake in as much money as possible, the bigger notes the better. And just in a matter of hours people went from gazing lovingly to simply hostilely glaring at bundles of money. Don’t you think all this is very humorous too?

But enough about my country, what about you? How do you feel about Donald Trump being elected? What new and unexpected things do you think will happen next?

Your buddy,
Diksha Ramola
