Model Answer 1:
I am thankful to the Almighty because of the many happy events, which I am blessed with, in my life from the day I started to understand the world around me. But, such happy events become even more meaningful when we are able to share them with other people so that they are also elated. So, thank you for allowing me the opportunity to share one such happy event with you here.
The event took place about a few years ago in my hometown when I was really busy looking for a new job, after quitting my previous job, and I just didn’t have enough time or interest in helping anybody else except myself. But, that was not to happen because, incidentally, I also happened to be a “founding member” of a local “charity” club in my hometown which used to help the local residents in time of their needs, especially, if they were seriously ill. So, when some of the members from my charity club came to me with a news that one of the residents in our neighbourhood was suffering from “blood cancer” and that he needed a huge amount of money (which the patient didn’t have because of his rather poor financial situation) to get proper treatment, me and my charity club members were left with no choice but to act swiftly to collect enough funds for him. But, collecting such a huge sum of money within such a short period of time, as we literally had to knock on every door in my hometown for help, was not an easy task at all. Anyway, we finally succeeded, but the happiest moment came when the doctor had informed me that the patient would carry on to live some more years.
It was indeed a very happy moment of my life because I could help a terminally-ill person save his life and be together with his family again, especially at a time when he lost all his hopes. Besides, the event also made me realize that we can solve “mountain” of problems if we work together.
Sample Answer 2:
I can remember many happy events of my life and out of those, I would like to talk about the event that I can still remember vividly. It was indeed an exhilarating event and that was regarding my success in the board final exam. The moment I heard that I had been awarded a scholarship for my performance in the board exam, I became the happiest man in the world. This was truly a felicitous moment for me as it is something I was looking forward to very eagerly and the news made my parents quite happy and proud. I would like to thank you for letting me talk about this event.
I waited almost a month with great anxiety for my result. I started speculating so many things and many of them were negative. I could hardly stop thinking about my upcoming result during this period. The result was highly important and my college admission was dependent on it. I could not sleep well the night before the result publishing day. I think it is common for students to worry about their results, especially for important exams, and I was familiar with this type of concern. However, I have to admit that I had been more worried about it than other exam results I can remember.
The result was published at around 11.00 am and I found that I did exceptionally well. I was so relieved and happy that I was on cloud nine. Then I hurriedly returned home and gave the news to my parents. They were very happy. My father, who barely expresses his emotions was also very pleased, and my mother called a few of our relatives to share the good news. I felt excited, happy and relieved. At that time I was about 15 years old. It happened in our hometown called (… say the name of your hometown…). It was so pleasant an event that I still remember every bit of it.
