Model Answer:

He is a “Magistrate” by profession, and he runs mobile court in different places, especially, business enterprises and corrupted private and public officials, of my country and punishes them for the irregularities and corruption, they commit. The name of this magistrate is Mr Mir Shekhar, and I wish to meet him one day.

Anyway, I saw this magistrate about a few years ago on TV news for the first time, trying to find out about the irregularities of a prominent business enterprise of my country. But, when I saw him on that day, I couldn’t actually believe my own eyes because what he was doing was essentially like challenging some of the most powerful and vested quarters of my country who were/are controlling everything from behind the “curtain”.

By the way, I had already heard a little about the “cleansing” activities of this honest magistrate, prior to seeing him on the TV news on that day, but little did I know that he could go to such an extent in order to rid my country from all kinds of corruptions and irregularities. In fact, it is because of this ‘daredevil” magistrate that the government of my country has managed to collect a huge sum of tax money from greedy and corrupted individuals and business enterprises who had been evading paying taxes for many years.

This powerful government official travels from one corner of the country to another, and with him goes all the TV crews and journalists because he is a like a “celebrity” now because of his bold activities to rid my country from all kinds of crimes. No wonder that he is always on the news these days.

Anyway, I want to meet this person, mainly because it would be quite an honour for me to meet such a patriotic person who risks his life almost on a daily basis for the betterment of his country. I would like to meet him also because I would like to ask him what exactly motivated him to become such a fearless soul.
