Sample Answer

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. A thing can be beautiful for a person but there are possibilities that the same thing may not stand exquisite to others. I believe things that I have received from my kith and kin hold paramount importance in my life and are incredibly beautiful to me. The object I would like to talk about is a painting that was gifted by my best friend on my birthday. The reason why it is close to my heart is that it was a handmade artwork. My best friend knew how much I adore handmade items as they express that exerted effort and time are made to make the person feel special. Similarly, she planned to give me something handmade I hung it on my room wall and it goes absolutely well with the background colour. The artwork is Mandana painting it is one of India’s old forms of tribal art that has survived over the years and gained huge popularity recently. She meticulously prepared it and described that it took her two days to complete. She made it on a drawing sheet and then got it framed to present to me on my birthday. She mentioned that this art is drawn to protect the home and hearth, welcome gods into the house and as a mark of celebrations on festive events. Whenever I look at it I feel over the moon too and makes me feel fortunate to have a friend like her. I will be forever grateful for her efforts and devotion towards the present.
