IELTS CUE CARD # 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 and I
am going to talk about one such person. His name is Mr Ratan Naval Tata and I would love to
meet him in the near future.
He is 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.
A few months ago, he was interviewed by a renowned journalist where he talked about a
massive donation of 5 billion dollars to Prime Minister’s emergency fund during the coronavirus
pandemic. 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, especially in
the backward areas of the country. Apart from this, the Tata Group took another major
decision, which was to support the livelihood and families of their temporary workers by giving
them full payment during the initial phase of lockdown.
This quality affected me the most and had left a positive impact on me. I would also like to
highlight that, he has been awarded the Padma Vibhushan and Padma Bhushan, the highest
civilian awards of India by the Indian government for his business ethics and philanthropy.
I am eager to meet this generous person and would like to thank him for his kind step towards
humanity. Also, I would love to learn about the early stages of his life, different challenges that
he faced from his business competitors and how he managed to become such a successful
industrialist. If I get a chance to meet him, I will not miss the boat.
