Sample Answer of Talk About Something Important That Has Been Kept in Your Family for a Long Time

The thing I am going to talk about, which has been with my family for more than two decades, is the historical book Ramayana which is originally known as Ramcharitramanas. It is written by Valmiki, who has portrayed the figure of Lord Ram and Sita, who were sentenced to exile for a period of 14 years, and their journey of exile, which had a plethora of hardships and obstacles.

During this time, Goddess Sita was kidnapped by Ravana, who is worshipped in Sri-lanka and was considered to be the most knowledgeable man to have existed on earth. When we were young, my mother had got some chance to read this book, although we had watched this as a show on television.

She ordered one copy from a book store near to our house. She started reading this book during the second Navaratri’s. She used to read those lessons in the presence of my brother and me to impart good learnings and how to be kind and avoid greed. It is important in my family as we are Hindus, and this culture has a lot of stories to talk about and learn from.

Lord Rama is worshiped in the entire part of India. The values and teachings that we learn from these books hold importance in my family. My family truly believes that we as humans should inculcate the values learned in our Life. One should never take advantage of others and encourage Love over hate, Spread happiness over sadness and Be kind to all.
