Model Answer:
These days, when most of us are tremendously busy, it is really hard to make some time for watching any kind of TV. But, luckily, I was free one evening about a month ago, and that’s when I got to watch a nice programme on TV. Thank you for this interesting cue card topic.

The TV programme, I watched, was a comedy show which is probably aired every week. I knew that there was such a programme on TV, but I never really got a chance to watch it (not that I was really interested to watch it or something), simply because either I am too busy helping my wife or talking with my sister, who lives in a foreign country, over the phone. But, on that evening, everything was a bit unusually quiet on all fronts, and that’s when I took the TV remote and started to play with it by changing one channel after another. Suddenly, I got stuck with one channel where that comedy programme was being shown.

Anyway, the comedy show was about a “nanny” who was helping a rather wealthy family raise 3 of their very young children. The comedy show, very nicely, albeit comically, depicted the values and emotions of a rich family where children were just too tired to behave like “rich”, and instead, they wanted to behave like their old “nanny”. But, of course, the old nanny wasn’t at all interested in teaching the children the “funny, old values” of poor people like herself since, as the nanny put, she was not being paid any extra money to behave like a “poor” person!

Anyway, the comedy show made such a strong impression on me, mainly because it nicely showed how little children care about the artificial difference between the rich and poor that the so-called rich people so passionately and carefully try to preserve. Besides, the programme also showed how being happy was more important than actually becoming rich and famous.
