Sample Answer of Describe a Time when You Had to Wait for Something
I remember a time when I was travelling to Punjab with my mother and father from Kanpur, and the train from which we were travelling was not in a stretch. We had to board the train from Kanpur to Delhi and then from Delhi, and there was a 5-hour wait for the next train to Punjab. Once we reached Delhi with my mother and father waited for the next train at the platform. We had a lot of stuff to carry with so we chose a corner area in the platform to sit. We had to wait as we had no choice. While waiting, we felt hungry, so my mother gave us the food which she carried while travelling for us. We spent quality time together. We had a lot of talking which eventually we did very little in our daily lives. We played antakshari and felt very good. We found that 5 hours of waiting very enjoyful and found that boring waiting period very interesting. After all the hours spent then came the time when our train arrived and till today we remember that waiting period and is in the list of our memories.
