and explain why you admire this business person.

Model Answer: 
After learning about crony capitalism and the insane profiteering scheme of the business persons, I try not to become too personally close to a businessman. At least, not close enough to admire them. However, just as there always is an exception to the rule or norm, there may be some businessmen also, who deserve our admiration.

Mr Zayed Bakht is one such business person. The only reason, for which, I have chosen to talk about this person is that I have known this gentleman for a long time. In fact, I have known him for more than 20 years since the time when my mother fell ill, and I needed to buy some medicines from his pharmacy store. Since then, I have seldom visited any other pharmacy stores in order to buy any medicines. In fact, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to suggest that Mr Bakht is like a family pharmacy person to us as all of my family members and most of my relatives visit his store to buy all kinds of medicines.

Of course, a lot has changed in his business, since the time when I met him for the first time, as today, he has more employees to work for him, in a store which twice as big today as it was before 20 years. That actually shows how hard-working of a person he really is. In fact, many days, I have seen him running his store all by himself from 8 am to 11 pm. Anyway, this mild-mannered pharmacy owner has such a great memory that he hardly ever forgets about a customer who has visited his store at some point.

Anyway, I admire this business person, mainly because I have always seen him charging much fewer profits on his medicines than many other pharmacies in the town. Besides, he is always respectful to the wishes of his customers, especially, when it comes to choosing the medicines of a particular brand or company. Finally, I admire this person because he is very sincere about his customers as he never forgets to ask them about their well beings.

One cannot live without a family, and even if we notice deeply, we could see that familial bonding is also found among animals. Thus, the importance of having a family cannot be ignored to live on the planet. A family is a place where anyone could expect to get anything without the promise of return in exchange. In my family, I admire my father most. He is the key person in our family and maintains the family in a solid way. He is my hero in my life. My father is truly an a
