Describe something that you have shared with others (or another person).
• What you shared
• When you shared it
• Who you shared it with
• And explain why you shared it or how you felt when you shared it.
• We all need to share many things in our day to day life.
• I also share many things with my siblings and friends.
• Here I would like to talk about something I shared with my friend, Rohan.
• I shared my books and notes with him.
• It so happened that just 15 days before our +2 final exam, Rohan lost his whole school bag.
• All his books and notes were in that bag.
• He kept it in the school ground as he wanted to play cricket for some time.
• After the game, he could not find his bag anywhere.
• He looked everywhere and asked everyone who was there, but no one knew anything about it.
• Someone had obviously stolen it.
• Actually, he used to always stand first and his notes were very precious.
• He was literally on the verge of tears.
• I told him not to panic and offered to share all my notes and books with him till the exams.
• Fortunately, he lives in my neighbourhood.
• So, sharing all these books and notes with him was easy.
• Most of my notes were copied from his notebooks only.
• I realised that sharing things with others gives happiness.
• Sharing my notes with Rohan, strengthened our bonds of friendship.
• It helped me also.
• Because I had to share my books, I studied them within my time.
• Normally, I have a habit of procrastination.
• I always study for my exams at the 11th hour.
• But this time, I studied in time and was well prepared.
• We both passed with flying colours.
1. Do people in your country (or, you) prefer to share public transport
or do they (you) prefer to use private transport?
Well, it depends on the financial status of the people. Those who can afford, like to use their own private transport. Others, prefer public transport. It also depends on the availability and comfort of public transport. Ever since, the AC buses have improved their frequency to Chandigarh, I prefer to travel on those than going by my car.
2. Do many people in your country share their home with other or do they mostly live alone?
Most people live in their own home or live in a rented house. But they don’t share their home with anybody. Students share apartments, if they study away from their home town.
3. Do you think there are any advantages to sharing your home with other (non-family) people?
If you can get along well with other people, then there are advantages. But if there are conflicts, it can be a bad experience. Advantages are that the expenses can be shared. So, it becomes cheaper.
4. Would you ever share your food with someone else?
Many times, I have shared my tiffin with my friends. Yes, I would readily share my food with others.
