IELTS Cue Card Latest Question # Mobile Phones

Most people in the world have changed the way they use mobile phones! Gone are the days when phones were just a medium of communication. In the present era, they are much more that! With the integration of mobile phones and internet, one can find people using them almost everywhere. This time we are looking at a cue card when one was asked not to use their mobile phone.

Describe a situation where you were not allowed to use your mobile phone. You should say :

  • when was it
  • where were you present
  • what did you do

also explain, how did you felt when you were separated from your phone

  • Puri
  • visited Jagannath temple
  • was asked to keep phones outside the temple
  • took a coupon and placed the phone in the counter
  • felt bad initially
  • had plans of clicking photos
  • felt more peaceful and enjoyed the temple visit

Travelling is something that I do love and when I was posted in Bhubaneswar for an year, I did visited Puri. Puri is around 60 kms from Bhubaneswar and in there is the most religious temple of India, the Jagannath temple. I visited the temple with a plan of clicking photos at every nook and corner of the temple and write a blog about it. But, to my surprise, I was asked to keep my phone outside the temple. At that I carried two phones and although I felt that may be carrying a camera phone was not allowed. But, I was stopped from carrying my other low end phone as well.

What I came to know later on what that the temple people want you to focus only on the temple visit and get a hold of the ambience of the temple. Irritated initially, I entered the temple and did visited every part of it. But, I think not having a phone for an hour helped me connect with myself in a better manner. At that point, I had no other option but to live in the very moment.

There was no chaos for clicking photos nor for picking any calls or listening to music. I ended up thanking the temple committee for not allowing phones in the arena.
