  • But, however, my favorite game as a child was chess. When I was in my teenage, my grandfather and I play chess before going to bed. Moreover, chess is two players board game played on a checkered board. The game is played by millions of people worldwide and I am one of them. I like this game because this game has required strategy and tactics. In this way, playing chess has many benefits. So my grandfather always forced me to play with him. He were advised me that it raises your IQ; it increases problem-solving skills as well as the memory of child. At that time, I was not so clever in studying so I found that this game helped me a lot.

Actually, 6 months ago, kapil Sharma and his team organized this live performance to entertain the dwellers of my city. Many their comedy companions were there and I was just in seventh heaven to see them live for the very first time.

  • India is a developing country. Government tries to provide numerous amenities for the betterment of its citizens. It has also provided many public facilities in my city; however, there is still one thing which needed to be changed in my area. There is an empty plot stone’s throw away from my locality where people have started throwing garbage. It doesn’t only unpleasant and dirty, but also invites countless diseases. Moreover, some of my friends dislike visiting my area because of repulsive (unpleasant) smell. It is causing sedentary lifestyle to the people. I believe if government takes initiative to build either park or gym, people will utilize that place positively. In addition to this, it will also help people in improving their health. Juvenile can play different games there whereas elders can go there for morning and evening walk. That area is really spacious which can be utilized in a better way. Dwellers will love this change in the area because it will solve health issue too. Now, due to the garbage, there is 100% surety of becoming prey of different diseases. Apart from this, by bringing the change, our society will also look appealing.

When I went in the changing room, during that time I forgot my smart-phone there. Then, after exiting the mall I would remind that I had to call my sister. At that time, I was shocked because that was missing. Then, as soon as I went to enquire about it from the manager, but the manager did not have any clue about it. Then, I requested manager to dial my phone number. But, it was coming as switched off at that time. Then I realized that it had gone into wrong hands. I was extremely disappointed and I had no idea what to do. After reaching home, I was too anxious and sitting in a room lonely. Then, suddenly my brother told me have you lost your mobile? After hearing this I got terrified that how he got to know? And at that time he told me that is have just received a call from my friend abhishek. He got your phone from a changing room of the mall. Luckily, he was the next after your turn. At last, I was over the moon. I was really happy to have my mobile back. Now, I always take a great care of my possessions. So, those situations will never happen again.

So, I was in the show room of dell brand at that time and finally I bought the laptop for which I had waited a lot. It was about six months ago when I completed my secondary education with great scores. At that time, I was with my cousin elder brother, actually, just like me, my friend is really passionate about technology. So, he was really excited to go with me. I had many reasons to be really excited. The very first thing was that I had sacrificed all my things to collect money.

Because of this reason I usually travel a lot of different cities so that I can get knowledge about their culture, beauty, and customs and I prefer to face real world experiences. For this reason, I decided to visit a city which is about 350 km away from my town so it was like a trip for me. I felt very excited and amazed during the journey.

It is located in the Sabarmati suburb of Ahmedabad, Gujarat. This is one of the most popular places on my city or probably one of the most famous ashram of my state Gujarat. Because of its popularity, almost everyone knows about that place. I vividly remember that when I was in 8th standard, our school organized a trip for the very first time. I think this is highly significant because of many reasons. Firstly, people have peaceful and religious feelings towards this ashram as it situated near the Sabarmati river. Secondly, in this ashram you can see the writings and photographs of gandhiji and get information about gandhiji’s daily routine, principles and rules. This exhibits major events of gandhiji’s life from 1915 to 1930 in Ahmedabad.
