PART – 2 CUE CARD:
Describe a stage or an age in your life that you have enjoyed most.
– what age/stage it was
– what you did then
– why it was enjoyable
– why you remembered that age/stage?
I believe everyone treasures the childhood memories. So do! If recount the particular stage of my golden days, it was when I was in my seventh grade of school time. I had a dream of visiting Disneyland in America. I always kept telling my father that I wanted to see the beauty of Disneyland. During Diwali vacation, I remember my father surprised me by taking me to Disneyland all of a sudden. It was like a dream come true and you can understand there was unimagined and unexplained happiness and excitement ! had about this surprise.
The moment my father declared the travel date for America, I was busy packing up my stuff and picking my favorite clothes for the best clicks at Disneyland. I made a list of things that I wanted to carry and also the list of things that I wanted to buy from there. I always heard and read about the attractions of Disneyland such as ‘Jungle Cruise’, ‘the Indiana Jones Adventures’ and ‘Tarzan’s Treehouse’, and there was a sudden opportunity for me to experience these attractions.
For a child, there’s no best thing than his dream, and if nature conspires it at the right time and at the right age, you feel yourself the luckiest person on the earth. And ‘Yes’, I was the luckiest person on the earth and I’ve no words how to thank my father for this trip.
During that stage, it was all about childhood desire and fantasy to visit this place. But now I see that trip slightly differently. It was my father who made it possible. When I see those photos with my family, they give me a smile on my face. It was one quality time that I could never forget and one fine day – from this experience – I will also fulfill any dream of my kids in the future.
PART – 3 FOLLOW UPS
What do you think is the best age in a person’s life?
I think the best age in a person’s life is the carefree age where you’re not worried about your clothes, money, your appearance, food, or any other stuff. The only thing you get worried over is your homework or getting punished by parents for overindulging into chocolate munching.
What is older people’s attitude in your country?
Well, these days older people don’t behave like the old at all, they put youngsters to shame. They are so active, hardworking and they like to connect with people of all the age. Their way of looking at the world is different; they participate into a lot of cultural activities, volunteer into social work and so on. Their perception of life is very different from the way it used to be.
Do people in your country give importance to the age difference in respect of marriages?
Yes! Elders are very particular and give a lot of importance to the age difference in respect of marriages. Generally, in India, marriages are fixed in such a way that the groom is always at least couple of years older than the bride. This has been an age-old practice or custom and a bride older to the groom is considered blasphemous (= profane, disrespectful). However, I don’t support this notion at all. Marriage is all about love, affection and bonding and the age is just a number.
