- -What place is it?
- -When do you visit that place?
- -How you feel about it?
- -Why you don’t want to live there?
Well, I am fond of traveling and in my life I have visited numerous places.
Here, I would love to elaborate the place where I enjoy going every year but I can’t stay for long time.
The place is Harmandir Sahib in Amritsar, Punjab, is the holiest shrine in Sikhism. Amritsar is the place where I usually visit with my family. This city is renowned for Golden temple and also attracting numerous individuals across the world because it is one of the most historically and culturally rich place in India.
Last year I went there with my family during my summer vacation, Amritsar is religious and outstanding city. We went there to pay our obeisance in Shri Harmandir Sahib, commonly known as Golden Temple. We went by our own car and enjoyed a lot during traveling.
We visited many places including Wagah Border, Jallianwala Bagh, Gobindgarh Fort and many other places. It was magnificent experience to visit and feel the essence of real Amritsar.
Although, I love visiting this place, I don’t want to live there because of some reasons. Though this city is called the Holy city but the garbage and pollution has defaced this place. My whole family is living in Patiala and I cannot live alone. Furthermore, we found heaps of rubbish lying here and there and the water drains were choked with polythene bags.
Besides domestic garbage, factory fumes were also adding in to the existing pollution. It seemed like evening during noon time as the smoke has engulfed the entire city .We felt trouble in breathing also. Owing to these reasons, it’s difficult for me live in Amritsar. I have to face lot of difficulties if I think about to live there.
1. What type of apartment do most people in your country like to live in ?
People usually live in either houses or apartments. There are a certain group of people who believe that staying in a house is better than staying in an apartment because houses are more spacious and are often located in quiet areas. Well, in my hometown most of the people live in their own houses.
2.Do people in your country like to invite others as guests?
Well, people in my country definitely love to invite other as guests. We Indians believe and follow the custom and tradition of serving people like gods. We follow the path of ‘adhithi devo bhava ‘ which means guests are like gods . Guests are treated in the best way possible according to the facilities available.
3.Do people take gifts when they visit each other?
In my country, Gift giving is a part of our tradition. We often buy gifts whenever someone invites us to their house even if this is just a social visit. People in our country love to give gifts to others as a gesture of their good wishes and to show that they care. If someone invites a person to a birthday party, a wedding ceremony or to a baby shower, the invited guest always brings gifts.
4.What is the difference between the houses in the city center and the suburbs?
A city is a large highly populated area which serves as a hub of banking, finance, innovation, and markets in the area. Since the city is a very crowded and busy place, many people prefer to live outside of the city though they have to come to the city every day. A suburb is an outlying district of a city which serves as a residential area. Since suburbs are only a short distance away from the city, people can commute from the suburb to the city. The main difference between city and suburb is that suburb is less densely populated than the city.
