Model Answer:
There are different types of people live in the world together and they are featured with diversified characters. I have met Mr. Geffry Ramadin, a man of fun.

Mr. Geffry Ramadin is the man who will make you feel comfortable with his companion and you cannot stop laughing hearing his jokes and the way he talks. Basically, he is a computer engineer by7 profession and loves to travel. He is filled with vast experiences of travelling in different parts of the world. The middle-aged man becomes the centre of attraction wherever he starts talking. His experiences have made him a man with numerous unusual experiences and when he describes those, the listeners feel thrilled and simultaneously get fun for his interesting presentation style. He is not a joker but his speeches are filled with humour and you need to have the sense to taste the humour too.

I met him in the elevator of my apartment. I was waiting on the ground floor for the elevator and he was standing beside me. At first, we did not have talks but a few moments later, he started talking over the cellular phone. I came to know that he was the new tenant of the apartment opposite to mine. Then we got introduced inside the elevator and invited him to be at my place for some tea breaks. He granted my invitation and then the complete introduction between us began. Mr. Ramadin has lived in different parts of the world for his occupational purposes and been hired by several globally renowned organisations. Since then, he is a senior friend of mine and shares numerous interesting issues.

When I pass moments with Mr. Ramadin, he teaches me different skills and tells me stories that were unknown to me. Sometimes, based on his mood, he tells the stories of African people and their living styles, their cultures and customs, how they have been exploited by the colonial rulers and survived, the current conditions of their life and many other similar facts. Besides, I have formed a network with few other neighbours in the apartment building to have chats regularly in the evening when everyone is back from their works. This is a type of recreational activity for us.

Mr. Ramadin is a man of letters. He also knows how to make people pleased. So, whenever I meet him, I become pleased after talking with him. When I become stressed for my work or for any other matters, I share my imbalanced mental and emotional states to him to get some advice to overcome the complexities. But before I complete the statements, he provides the solutions and it amazes me most. Whenever I apply the solutions or work according to the suggestions, it really works for me. The most important thing is that I cannot continue my imbalanced emotional atmosphere during the meets with him.
