Describe a person in news you would like to meet

Describe a person in news you would like to meet

You should say:

  • Who the person is
  • What they do
  • Why they are in the news

And explain why you would like to meet them

There are innumerable famous personalities that often remain in news or become headlines of the newspaper. Most of the time they gain media’s attention because of their noble deeds, but there are some people who remain in news, for the controversies they are into.

Today, I would like to talk about a person whom I wish to meet in the near future and the personality is Mr Ratan Naval Tata, an Indian industrialist, philanthropist, and a former chairman of Tata sons. He is a scion of the Tata family, and great-grandson of Jamshedji Tata, the founder of the Tata group.

I saw him in the broadcast a few months ago when I was watching the news, as he announced a massive donation of Rs 500 crores to Prime Minister’s emergency fund during the coronavirus pandemic. By doing so he became the top trending person on Twitter. The amount would be used for buying personal protective equipment for the medical personnel on the frontline and testing kits to increase per capita testing. Apart from this, the Tata Group had decided to give full payment to their temporary workers and daily wage earners, just weeks after the outbreak escalated in the country.

This quality of him had affected me the most and had left a positive impact on me. Even though he has reached such great height in his life, he is very down to earth and is always ready to help others. He has been awarded by the Padma Vibhushan and Padma Bhushan, the highest civilian awards of India by the Indian government for his business ethics and philanthropy.

I have an eager desire to meet this generous person and would like to thank him for his kind step towards humanity. Also, I can learn and inculcate some of his traits in my personality. If I get a chance to meet him, I will not miss the boat.

Why Study Abroad?

STUDY ABROAD. CRACK IELTS. DO GMAT OR FIGURE OUT SOME OTHER COURSE. BUT JUST GO ABROAD.
You must have heard this. But then why? Why study abroad? Don’t we have good colleges in India as well?
I would say we do have and studying in abroad can be one hell of a fight. There is lot of paper work that needs to be done. Chances are that you feel home sick or may be experience cultural shock. There could be difficulties with understanding language and the classes can be more challenging.
WHY GO FOR IT THEN

EXPOSURE

You can sit in India with your friends and family but the exposure you get while studying abroad is worth a try. You get to know the different cultures of the world. Meet new people and make memories that last forever

LEARN

Study abroad allows you to learn a discipline from a completely different cultural perspective. It allows you to develop skills such as creative problem solving, interacting with people from different backgrounds and lot more.

Stop being skeptical about studying abroad. It might be possible that you face some difficulties. But remember, it takes some cuts and bruises to get the perfect shape.

IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Building That Impressed You

There are so many  construction sites around the world, so many that we see everyday. It could be an office or a house or may be something with historical importance. No matter what, there are certain buildings which make us go wow. The ones which we want to live in or work for or may be visit again and again. Let us today have a look at a cue card related to a building that impressed you.

Describe a building or construction that you have seen and impressed you.
You should say:
– where it was
– what it looks like
– when did you saw it.

There are lot of buildings that I have visited but the one architecture that has taken me by storm is the Bada Imambara in Lucknow.  Bhool Bhulaiya is a labyrinth of hundreds of narrow stairway passages, some of which have dead-ends, some end at precipitous drops while others lead to entrance or exit points. We went to the place with a guide and even with him there were times when we felt lost.

It was enormous and while taking a stroll down it I realized if while walking on it, it is so difficult to remember where we came from and where we need to go, how would have the people created the architecture. The Bada ImamBara is said to be the world’s largest arched room without any pillars.

I remember my relatives came to our house, while we were living in Lucknow, during I suppose 2002. I was very young that time and going there was amazing. As a child, there were certain things that fascinated me, others I did not understand but whatever it be, it was great to be lost with my family.

Building That Impressed You


Our country has some of the best architectural buildings and I have had the chance of visiting lot of them. But, the one building that I fell in love with was Taj Mahal. Taj Mahal is regarded as the sign of love and there is so much of great architecture in it that anyone can fall in love with it.

I remember having visited the Taj Mahal when I was around 13 years old and it was a truly amazing experience. As kids, we, as in me and my brother were very inquisitive about the place and ended up asking lot of questions to the guide. So, he told us about why it was made and what is the story behind it. But, when you look at Taj Mahal, I believe it was made with so much of true intentions and true love that it gives you peace and makes you calm down.

Taj Mahal was made with white marble inlaid with semi-precious stones. It has got a central dome along with four smaller domes; four slender towers, or minarets, stood at the corners. There are verses from the Quran were inscribed in calligraphy on the arched entrances to the mausoleum, in addition to numerous other sections of the complex. In the lower floor are the domes of Mumtaz Mahal and Shah Jahan.

It is for the love of Mumtaz that Shah Jahan made the Taj Mahal. Although, with the environment issues coming up, there are lot of problems that Taj Mahal has faced, but it still manages to bring in lot of tourists from all around the world.

IELTS Speaking Sample Questions # Robots

We are living in times when technology has made our life so much easier. Now, we are moving towards taking it to another level. We are shifting our attention towards automation i.e. creating devices that could do things on their own. These devices are called robots. This time we are looking at some questions related to robots that can be asked in the IELTS speaking section.

Are you interested in robots? Why?

We all are already surrounded by robots and I think yes I am too an extent interested in them as well. It will be amazing to see the robots doing things that we don’t like making us more productive. So, for example, when a robot would be driving my car, I will have time to read my novel or have a chat with my friend.

Do you like robots to work at your home?

I am pretty content with robots working at my home doing things that I really don’t like. So, for example, things like cleaning the room or the car, well if the robot does it I am good with it. Or, for sometimes make food for me. But, then depending entirely on them, does not suits me well. Allowing the robot to cook food for me or drive car for me, is not something I will go for. Sometimes it is good, but there are times you wish to do things on your own, spend time with people you love. I think balancing between both is where the things will go.

Do you want to take a car in which robot is the driver?

I would love to have a car with a robot in it, but only if there is an option of manually driving the car as well. Having a robot every time in the car, will just take away the fun of driving the car. The fun that you get, the rush of reaching to a place, the fact that you can control something is amazing. Although, having a robot will help in having those long trips but a permanent driver is something I’ll avoid.

Will robots replace human beings in the workplace completely?

Completely, might not be possible. But, yes to a very large extent, in the near future, robots will surely replace humans. And they have done in the past as well. There were times when people were given jobs only for data entry, this is now handled easily using computers. But, in my opinion for jobs like teaching or even software jobs will continue to require manual intervention.
