Sample 1

Sharing is caring, and this is a good habit since in our daily life, people borrow and lend something to each other. On this occasion, I would like to talk about a book that I borrowed from my best friend. It was during last semester when my final exams appeared. I remember the weather was not really good, heavy rain during that day. I studied at the class as usual. One day, I forgot my English book. At that time, I became anxious as my English exam was two hours after and bringing that book was mandatory to do that exam. After that, I tried to think and decided to call my best friend, who had a different schedule from me because our class was also different. Luckily, she said that I could borrow the book from her as soon as possible, it was really a nice gesture from her. I immediately rushed to her place, in another class, and got a sigh of relief when she gave me the book. I felt confident about the exam despite losing 2-hours of precious preparation time. A Clock was ticking, and my exam went really well; I returned the book to her the next day with a note of thanks. A few months later, my result was declared; I was surprised to see that I scored the highest marks in that subject. I felt so happy and grateful for my best friend’s help. Without her help, this score would not have been ever possible to me. Finally, I bought a gift for her to express my gratitude.

Sample 2

In our daily routine, we encounter a situation where we have to buy new things for a certain time period after that they become less useful or sometimes you have something, but you don’t remember where to find it. The same happened to me last month. I was studying on my desk and after completing my other subjects work when I moved to English. I suddenly realized that I had again forgotten to find my English grammar book. Then I looked for it for some time but couldn’t find it. Then I thought to call my friend Gopal Krishan and ask him to lend me a book for some time. The book was J.P.H. general English which was very beneficial to me. Because it helps me to improve my grammar and vocabulary. After calling Gopal, I went to his home for borrowing it. Gopal easily takes it out from the bookshelf and hand it over to me. After reaching home, I realized that I needed to clean my book-self and Almira so that I could have the things organized and easily available. I realized that the gospel helps me a lot of time in a situation like this, but I should not borrow the things I already have. It is a bad habit to ask for things from a friend. Then I cleaned my bookshelf and found the book. After that, I went to return Gopal’s book and thanked him a lot for the help.
