Sample Answer

Technology has changed our lives to a great extent and has become an inseparable part of our routine. I look around today and see myself surrounded by technology in every direction. One such gift of technology is the mobile phone, with the primary function of calling people and sending text messages, it also serves innumerable other functions.

I still remember my first mobile phone as it was a turning point in my life. I had cleared my twelfth standard examinations and was preparing to go abroad for further studies. My father used to live in another city and wanted me to visit him during my summer break before college. He gifted me my first mobile phone then. It was a Sony Ericson smartphone, with internet and camera facility along with many other advanced features. I was extremely happy and started using it as I would need it for my solo travels and time spent away from home. I was immersed in that small piece of technology and fiddled through it to familiarize myself with its features.
It was very beneficial as I could be in constant touch with my family at all times, and made it possible to share everything including my whereabouts with them. It was an exhilarating experience streaming through videos, listening to music, taking pictures, and playing games. I found it very convenient to talk to my friends and show them new things that I came across. The smartphone had indeed changed my life a lot and that too for the better.
