I belong to Delhi and I completed my post-graduation in Business Administration six months ago. Since I was not willing to leave my parents alone, I was looking for a suitable job in Delhi only. In spite of being a topper, I was unable to get through any interview after trying for almost 5 months. Alongside the campus interviews, I was also applying in different companies. Most of my batch mates were already got placed through campus placement. So, the level of my stress and anxiety was increasing day by day. I wanted to make my parents feel proud of me by fulfilling their expectations. In the process of job hunting, one thing I had realised that getting a job is not as simple as it seems
Finally, on September 1st, this year, I got an interview call from a renowned multinational company based in Delhi. I gathered all my confidence and courage to face that interview. I was ready to focus more on the performance rather than the result. Hence, I was determined to give my best in the interview no matter what. After facing different rounds of interview, I was finally selected for my dream job. To my surprise, the salary offered to me was beyond my expectations. My happiness knew no bounds and tears started rolling down my eyes. I thanked God and my parents for the same.
This event is the happiest and unforgettable moment of my life. It has taught me a lesson for the lifetime that we should never give up and keep trying to achieve our goals in life.
I am from a small town. I haven’t had enough opportunity to visit many places out of my home city. There is one particular metropolitan city where I always dream of visiting that is the capital city of India, New Delhi. Delhi has a lot to offer to everybody. It has a great history. Every stone in Delhi has a story to narrate.
Delhi is known as Lutyens’ Delhi also as the whole design of construction of this city is idealised by the British architect Edwin Lutyens. New Delhi has a lot of monuments reminiscent of the British rule. Delhi is divided into New Delhi and Old Delhi. The house of parliament, the Connaught place and the prime minister’s office are a few structures that can be seen in New Delhi. It has a number of monuments, historical buildings, educational institutes and gardens.
Old Delhi presents all the lively picture of Medieval India. It has many old buildings. The Red fort and Jama Masjid are also situated in Old Delhi. I am excited to visit all these places about which I have been studying and watching since long.
Delhi is a great hub for shopping also. Across the country, people come here for buying and selling things. I am a shopaholic, for me it’s going to be a great experience.
In my country there are many historical monuments. My country is known for its rich cultural heritage. I am from the capital city and there we have many old buildings, some are from Mughal era and some represents the British era. As I have great interest towards history that’s why I have visited many of them like Red Fort, Old Fort and Qutub Minar.
Recently my college organised a historical trip to Agra as this city is famous for the most famous monument of our country that is the Taj Mahal. It is situated on the banks of the river Yamuna and is surrounded by a beautiful garden. The mausoleum is made entirely out of white marble and decorated with many other precious stones.. It is one of the most beautiful historical buildings. It is also one of the seven wonders in the world. This is very famous among people as a symbol of love. It was built by the Mughal emperor, Shahjahan in the memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died during child birth. It took 20 years of time to construct this pristine beauty. But it has one more story behind it that Shahjahan chopped off the hands of the architect who designed the whole idea of this building. It is said that he never wanted that the world has another monument like Taj Mahal.
It is considered as one of the most romantic tourist spots in the world. Many tourists from all parts of the world come to India to see the beauty of this token of love.
People get judged on the basis of social status. to what extent do you agree.
A person’s worth nowadays seems to be judged according to social status and material possessions. Old-fashioned values, such as honour, kindness and trust, no longer seem important.
To what extent do you agree or disagree.
Expensive cars, luxurious life-style and hefty amount of money help rich people to get extra attention at every place. It is evident that people these days get judged on the basis of their wealth. Although the rich attain some uncommonly privileges, it is not true that other moral values are losing their significance in our lives.
Certainly, money plays an important role to categorise the status of people. Most rich people get extra consideration because of their possession of expensive items. Most of the time their display of abundance of possessions like big mansions, branded cars and boasting about holiday in foreign countries make others envy of them. Nevertheless, many of them get into lime light for some of their nefarious activities as well. Divorce, over-indulging in alcohol and bad relationships always make them talk of the town.
Undoubtedly, humanity is the back bone of any society. Survival for a long period of time will not be possible without trusting each other and showing kindness to others. A large group of people are still following basic old-fashioned values to form friendships and maintaining relationships. Trust and unconditional love are still considered as important aspects to deal with people, prospering harmony among them.
To conclude, there is no denying that we live in a materialistic world where society judge any one on the basis of their social status. Looking beyond the materialistic possessions, however, there are people who are the safeguards of humanity. Keeping our old beliefs and values alive among us.
