How was your experience?
Friends and family are highly important relationships that stand by you in your time of need. Man is a social entity, and always forms ‘give and take relations, where they take help and help those in need every time. I have a lot of good friends and caring, supportive family members as well. We all stand by each other’s side during tough times. One such incident is worth mention, and it is about my cousin brother. It happened when I had just cleared my degree and joined my first job. I liked my job very much even though it was a very hectic one.
I had a load of assignments I needed to complete, which often required me to work after hours from my home. This posed an issue as I did not own a computer then. One day, I was on an outing with my cousin, who was very fond of me and adored me. Being the elder brother, he taught me a lot through real-life examples of life and its problems with the utmost compassion. I told him of this issue during our discussion, in hopes that he would help me out with his advice there as well. To my surprise, he took me to his place and gave me his personal laptop computer. He basically lent it to me and told me to return it back only after I had purchased one of my own.
I was humbled and thankful to him for this huge help, as well as worrying about hampering his work. He assured me that he had an official laptop as well, and it was sufficient for his work. I thanked him a lot and used the laptop for the next three months. After saving from my salary, I purchased a new laptop for my own use and returned my cousin his laptop. I still keep that incident as a cherished memory and thank him for his graciousness.

Explain what you liked about the place?
As I travel frequently, I was able to avail the opportunity to visit a quiet place in my country. I shall be discussing about this exotic place in detail as I found it to be extremely peaceful, soothing and serene. The place is located in Tawang which is in the state of Arunachal Pradesh. Arunachal is also known as the Land of Rising Sun and is situated at the altitude of around 10000 feet.
One has to travel a long distance and it takes three days to reach there from Delhi. Initially I boarded a three hours flight from Delhi to reach Guwahati. Since there is no further flight connectivity, for further journey, I commenced my movement by road to reach midway by evening. Third day before dawn, I started again to reach my destination.
The very next day I decided to trek my way to a monastery as I was keen to witness its beauty. My friends who had visited Arunachal advised me to visit it.
The local name of the monastery is Gumpha and it is located at a Hill Top. There is a treacherous track to reach the place. As I reached there, I was thrilled by the solace which I found in this place. There was no other inhabitation and construction .A stream was flowing next to it which added to the beauty and splendor of that architectural masterpiece. I could hear the chirping birds and noise of breeze .I appreciated the Monastery’s peculiar pagoda kind of construction.
The atmosphere was full of warmth and had a magical affect on my mind. After spending three days I reached back rejuvenated and full of energy. The memories of this quaint place are still fresh in my mind.
A prerequisite condition to start a relationship is to first initiate a dialogue. A healthy communication involves both listening and speaking. Some people are reserved and talk less ,whereas others are big mouthed. In order to maintain a healthy mind, we must share our thoughts and feeling with others. It also improves your bond with others, and encourages them to listen to you.
As a teenager, I was very shy and unable to express myself. Suddenly, I met the most talkative person of my life who completely changed me. She was my colleague and became my best friend in no time. I had heard that opposite attracts but I started believing in this after meeting her. We are still best friends.
Though, she looks very arrogant and pretentious, but actually she is outspoken and helpful. My friend is always ready to start a conversation with anyone about anything. She believes that whatever she knows is important and must be shared with others. We never have any misunderstanding between us because she tries her best to explain every small detail.She finds talking is the best medicine to beat stress and anxiety. Due to her habit of talking, she is notable to many and has a large group of friends. Being with her, I have learnt the importance of talking to feel happy and confident.
To conclude, since, we know excess of everything is bad .Therefore, over communication sometimes makes a person deviate from the main topic of discussion. People ignore loquacious people as they do not listen and only talk. I believe, we must not impose our thoughts on others but should also listen to others.
Describe a good news that you have heard recently about your relatives

When you heard it
How you heard this news
And explain how you felt about this news
I am very close to some of my relatives, especially my aunt and her son. I share a strong bond with both of them. Today, I’m going to talk about a happy news which I received about my cousin-brother.
I live in Dehradun and my aunt lives in New Delhi. Last Sunday I went to New Delhi for some official work. Despite having a tight work schedule, I managed to go to my aunt’s house for some time in the evening. She had prepared a delicious dinner for me. During dinner she told me about my cousin brother’s selection as a senior manager in a Five Star Hotel in London. Currently, he works as a manger in Hotel Hyatt, a luxury hotel, in New Delhi.
I felt ambivalent when I heard this news. On one hand, I was very happy about his achievement. He has worked hard to reach that level. This job offer was a reward of his hard work and perseverance. On the other hand, I was sad because he is the only child my aunt has. She would be alone if he went to London. How would she live without him? All these questions were coming to my mind. To be honest, I didn’t discuss these concerns with her. It was their personal decision to accept or reject the offer. I had nothing to do with that. I wholeheartedly congratulated her and came to Dehradun the next day.
