Sample 1


Like everyone, I also have a clear idea of what my dream house would be like.

Where would this place be?

It would be far away from the city in the countryside area.

What would it look like?

It would look like a stately house will state of the art infrastructure. The house would have modern facilities like a gym and a swimming pool, but it would also be close to nature because I will build it in the middle of a farmhouse. The electricity generation will happen through solar panels, and a library will be inside to pamper my appetite for reading books.

Moreover, the house’s outside walls will have pictures of revolutionaries like Bhagat Singh and Chandrashekhar Azad and sports stars like Sachin Tendulkar and M S Dhoni.

When would you like to live there?

I am a student, and constructing such a house requires a boatload of money. Therefore, I have given myself six years. After finishing my studies, I will work with determination, dedication, and discipline to arrange funds for my startup. And once my venture becomes successful, I will have sufficient money to construct my dream home.

Explain why it is ideal for you.

It is ideal for me because, since childhood, I have dreamed of living an opulent lifestyle in the countryside instead of a city. However, I am an urban dweller, and traffic congestion and air pollution are pressing problems for me. By shifting to the countryside, I will maintain good physical health by avoiding pollution because, in villages, you get clean and pristine air.
