SAMPLE ANSWER

I’d like to talk about the one particular walk I had with my best friend a year ago. It had been a very tough day for me, working on weekends and to top it, the work was a bit bizarre. I was about to crash when Pant called me up for a walk. I remember running from my work desk and out to the office gate as if I had found my freedom. We initially thought of going for a 15-minute walk but I came back after around one hour.

We were ambling talking about the unnecessary things, discussing each other and having a beautiful time. It was late in the evening and the winds were blowing beautifully. We had burger first then tea followed by corn and then ice cream. There was not much distance that we covered, we were around 500 metres from the office area, but we took many rounds of the same place and it was amazing.

We chatted about his dreams and mine and then about the things going right and wrong in our lives. Then, we discussed our families and our old crushes, broken hearts and almost everything. It was a lovely walk, after a terrible day at work, when you are stuck to a computer screen for more than 10 hours, nothing can be better than having a walk with your best friend.

  • mass media
Answer

Advertisements have always grabbed my attention, be it the ones that came on television or the newer age one’s coming in youtube. Most of the advertisements in present time revolve around a story and have a call to action. One such commercial was of Smarak Ata. I can recollect clicking on the link randomly on youtube.

It began with a background of office, where three people made fun of their colleague for his poor accent and move on towards college where a person breaks the line. The one standing behind was from North Eastern states of our country. Sadly, but there are some stereotypes that people have for them. On breaking the line, the person brings food for him. The next story is that of a police officer who is busy and his juniors eye on him. He simply goes up to them and shares their food. it brings smiles to everyone’s faces and they feel a connection. The ad moves on how a mother shares the food for her child with a poor person. Towards the end, the people making fun of the person with a poor accent, share his food.

The commercial went viral when it came and was released in the mass media of internet. It had a simple and a beautiful message for all of us, that sharing is indeed caring. And we do not need to take big steps to finally make changes and make this world a beautiful place. It is all about sharing and the small acts of kindness and courtesy and love that we do, that make difference.

The reason I believe it is memorable is that it pans across all generations, almost everyone can connect with it. It seems to be one of those advertisements which when people will see even after 100 years, would be able to connect with.

shed – separated building from the house used for keeping garden tools

hall – an open area as you come into the house

terrace or patio – the paved area between the house and garden for sitting and eating

detached house – a house that is not connected to any other building

 ANSWER

My dream house for a very long time has been my grandfather’s place in Almora. It is a detached house with a large patio from where we can see the Himalayas. On winters, when it is all snowy, looking at the Himalayas is much more peace than anything in the world. For a long time no one has been living in that house, but it has two rooms, a big hall, kitchen and other necessities.

I’d like to renovate the house and make it as per my imaginaton. It’d be amazing to have my study room there. The room has a window, outside of which is a big tree. In the room, I’d prefer the walls to be painted purple and on the adjacent side of the window would be my study table. Near to it will be my laptop table. On that table will be my gadgets.

The other room, the bedroom will have a window along with a small table beside my bed. On that table, I’d prefer having novels that I will read before going to bed. On a larger scale, my ideal house is the one with books, media and bike. The reason I call it my ideal house is because of the memories attached with this house and the perfect location that it is in. Living in the house gives me a perfect balance of being a traveller and a homely person.
