Sample Answer

Photos are the best way to capture important moments in our lives. I have garnered a collection of many interesting photographs over the course of my life. These have been clicked in different places with different people, and mean a lot to me. The most special photograph in my collection is a picture of my family.

I distinctly remember the time it was taken. I live in a nuclear family and it is very rare to have a family get together as my father’s siblings and parents live far away in other cities. It was taken in May 2008 when my family had gathered for my cousin sister’s marriage. We all had come to Delhi at my grandfather’s place for the wedding and had a very good time. We were getting late for the reception ceremony on the last day, and after the morning chaos had died down and the family elders had fussed about small issues, we were ready to leave. My grandfather’s neighbor was a very cheerful person and jovially offered everyone to gather around for a family photograph. We all complied and the picture was successfully clicked after everyone settled down.

It is very special to me as it was the last photograph of my complete family. A few months after the wedding, my grandfather passed away, and my cousin brother left for his further studies abroad. Hence, May 2008 was the last time that we witnessed the complete family happy in togetherness, making the photograph a witness to that beautiful memory.
