Sample Answer 1
Each individual faces many demanding situations in life and needs to take severe decisions to overcome them. Recently, I faced such a challenging situation and could not find a solution. So, I ended up talking to my elder brother.
To be honest, I am not very strong academically, like my brother. In spite of knowing that, my father wanted me to pursue science in high school so that I could be a doctor or engineer. This created huge pressure on me as I knew I wouldn’t be able to handle that stream of study. Rather, I wanted to study commerce and wanted to be a chartered accountant. So, when I approached my brother with this dilemma, he explained to me to follow my wish as it was I who needed to plan my future. He added that our parents just want us to be successful and happy in life and when we prove to them that we can do that even in the profession of our choice, they would not be upset.
Initially, I was tensed and sarcastically remarked not to make filmy dialogues. But, gradually, when he explained the importance of my determination, what my parents actually want for me and how all this would affect my future, it all made sense. After that, we approached our parents together and communicated what we had discussed. Finally, after a long discussion, in which my brother showed the various bright prospects of becoming a C.A, my father agreed with my decision. Now, when I remember that day, I am happy that I got to talk to my brother, who helped me make a life-changing decision.
Sample Answer 2
I’ve had many conversations with different people while doing a Master’s in Arts and Culture. In our university, there was one faculty who used to engage us all the time. I used to have engaging conversations with him during lunchtime. He is Dr. Kanade Mukherjee, Professor of Indian art and culture.
He has immense knowledge of Indian culture and traditions. Whenever he talks to the students, he never gets annoyed to clarify their doubts. He has been a great inspiration for me. He has no family pressure; he only lives with his grandfather, a great mathematician. Apart from Indian art and craft, he knew British culture and economy.
I used to get very motivated and inspired by his teaching. He used to give each one of us extra time to know about every chapter in depth. For example, before my mid-exam, I was unable to understand one chapter of Indian crafts. He gave me such a fascinating lecture that I could not forget it even after my exam. He discussed what happened to Indian art and crafts during the British colonial period. Indian artists slowly understood the characteristics of British paintings and employed romanticism with soft texture and tones with a brush. He also discussed how the Britishers utilized a lot of Indian tools and cultures in their country to expand the economy and tradition. He used to give me running notes with his lecture that helped in constructing answers correctly.
