Sample Answer 1
To be honest, many places are special to me, like my hometown, my maternal uncle’s house, my school, and places I have explored with my parents. These will always have a unique place in the journey of my life. But, today, I will share about the most vital place of my adult life, which is Bangalore.
Tagged as the Silicon Valley of India and well known as an IT hub, Bangalore has a lot to offer other than excellent job and education prospects. It has beautiful gardens and parks like the Lalbagh Botanical Garden and Bannerghatta Biological Park, architectural beauties like the Bangalore Palace and Tipu Sultan’s Summer Palace and religious places like Sri Doddabasavanna Temple, Jamia Masjid and Saint Mary’s Basilica, to name a few. It also houses the two buildings of national importance, namely, the Vidhana Soudha, the largest state legislative building in the country and the High Court of Karnataka. Moreover, if you are a shopaholic, there are several markets to fulfil all your requirements, like Commercial Street, Brigade Road and UB City.
The capital of Karnataka, Bangalore, or Bengaluru as now it is called, is essential to me as it offered me my first job. Although I am away from my parents, my colleagues and people around me make me feel at home. Further, I am a hodophile and there is a considerable number of places in and around the city to explore. Other than Indian food, many places in the city offer numerous delicacies that will not only appease your taste buds but also warm your heart. I do not know what my future holds, but I hope to stay in Bangalore for a long time to create more incredible memories and enhance my professional experience.

This place is famous for arts and crafts and different forms of cultural traditions that make Bengal honoured and religious in all aspects. There are architectural monuments with lots of craftsmanship. People of bolpur have different forms of traditions. During holi people of bolpur get eccentric. The whole of bolpur is famous only for Shantiniketan, where students from all over the world come to study arts, skills, aptitude and talents in Rabindra Bharati institute.

The place has special meaning to me. Bolpur is my birthplace and there is an amalgamation of culture, beauty, amiability and hospitality. The nobel writer Rabindranath Tagore is the first laureate and given respect by the Bolpur people of west Bengal. Bolpur is a place where everybody lives together, and enjoys festivals together.
