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

Well, everybody knows that the first impression counts. Everyday life gives us plenty of opportunities to come across new people and interact with them.

Here, I’d like to share an incident when I happened to meet Reema for the first time, who later became my best friend. I can vividly recall the first day of my college when a North-East Indian girl with flawless rosy complexion sat beside me in the class.

Initially, I was reluctant to converse with her. Finally, I broke the ice and said, Hello to her with a smile and she smiled back. After the lecture, we went to the canteen to have a little chat. She told me that she didn’t really have many friends as she is painfully shy and she is trying to expand her social circle. She also told me a lot about herself and her life. I was really fascinated to know about her culture, rituals, food and language. What surprised me the most was her linguistic ability, she knew 5 languages. Even though this interaction lasted for a short while, it was very interesting. It gave me a glimpse into the lives of people living in North-Eastern India. These people are kind and open-minded.

From that day onwards, we started spending time together. Our mutual understanding and common interests are till date serving as a backbone of our friendship.
