Sample Answer 1:
Well waiting in long queues is pretty usual in India. I do not think there is any single person who has not stood in a long line for hours. It happened to me quite a lot of times. Today, I would like to tell you about my recent experience of waiting in line to update my Aadhaar card.
what it was about & how long the queue/line was?
If I am not wrong, It happened in the last week of January 2019 when I got notified by my college that I need to submit my Aadhaar ID number with an updated mobile number. Unfortunately, my mobile number had changed, so I decided to get it updated from a local government office located a stone’s throw away from my house. When I reached there, I was astonished to see a queue of approximately 200+ people. It was urgent work, and the line was long. Therefore, I had no other option other than waiting for the turn. I waited for 3 hours that day.
How did you feel about it?
During this time, I was feeling exhausted and tired. At one moment, I became hopeless. Finally, when I got my work done. I took a sigh of relief and thanked God for giving me the patience to wait for such a long time.
Sample Answer 2:
Well, I would like to tell you about a time when I had to stand still in a long queue for a few hours. I am narrating to you an event that I attended in 2018.
how long the queue/line was?
It was a long line of people, and I think I have never seen such a long row. More than 500 people were standing in the queue.
what it was about?
I went to take part in the Master Chef competition organized by a reputed tv channel. People were excited and waiting for their turn to give the audition. Due to the heavy rush, I decided not to take part in the challenge. However, my mom encouraged me to face the challenge with full zeal.
The day was quite hot, and it was hard to stand under the shadow of the sun. I was tired, but I did not lose hope. I waited for my turn, and it came after 5-6 hours. All the frustration was gone when I got selected by the judges. In the end, I was happy.
