Model Answer 1 :

Introduction :

Indeed, this is an interesting topic that reminds me of numerous instances when I was surrounded by a crowd of people yet felt drastically isolated. Earlier I had the perception that this happens only in reel life or in the fantasy world only until it started to happen with me in real life. Perhaps, today I would like to talk about a recent experience when I was along with my kith and kin, though, I got bored to the core.

When was it? and Where was it?

It was a couple of months ago when I planned a long excursion by car from Bangalore to Pune with my best buddies (you can say just family or friends). Since I am the only one who knows driving among us, I took the front seat. Our enthusiasm was in full swing to make this trip extremely exceptional as we all were driving together for the first time. I downloaded some of the catchy tunes and the chartbusters on my pen drive to enjoy music while travelling. Nevertheless, we all were extremely enthusiastic about this trip, therefore with the crack of dawn, we all headed (having a trip) towards the destination.

Just then, Out of blue, the music player stopped working; moreover, we had no choice instead to cover such a long journey without any music. For a couple of hours, we all caught up in our conversations, but shortly I realized that everyone dozed off. Although I was with my near and dear ones, I never felt such lonely. I was dying of the boredom, however, had to drive being quiet.

Why did you get bored?

I started to feel depressed, being silent plus driving for almost 2 hours then. I was nearly on the verge of tears as things didn’t work the way I planned.

How you felt about it?

More than being irritated, I was jealous that all my friends were taking a nap while I was driving. I don’t know what came in my mind, that to kill the time I started to sing on top of my voice, and they all woke up suddenly. I couldn’t resist myself to laugh by looking at their faces in that situation. I turned that boring situation into a hilarious one.

Conclusion :

Later, I stopped my car near a tea stall and sipped a cup of tea together before proceeding further.
