Model Answer:
My elder uncle is a very intelligent and educated person. But, unfortunately, he is probably a bit too much intelligent and educated for my liking. In fact, most of the conversations between me and him would eventually turn out to be a rather boring affair or not interesting at all. So, today, I would like to go ahead and talk about one of those “not so interesting” conversations with my uncle that I had in the recent past.

By ‘recent past’, I mean to say, it was not more than a month ago or so when I had this conversation, and that too on a very hot and humid day. Now, as far as I am concerned, I just don’t like hot and humid weather, and therefore, a conversation needed to be extremely interesting to hold my attention for more than 10 minutes. But, my uncle, as usual, didn’t really care about what I considered to be interesting and what not on that day also as he went on talking about how he debated about some of the laws of physics when he was a university student.

Of course, my biggest mistake was, while having the conversation, that I actually told him that I had made a big mistake by choosing to study “commerce” instead of “science”, and that I wouldn’t be able to have a secured financial future – not, at least, in the current sluggish economy of our country – without becoming an engineer or medical doctor. The conversation had lasted for almost 30 to 40 minutes, but it felt like I was in it for ages, as I was really struggling to hold my attention to that rather “demoralizing” conversation.

Anyway, I found the conversation to be dull and uninteresting, mainly because it was rather “pessimistic” in nature. I found it uninteresting also because it was not just the right time or place to have such a “complicated” conversation since I was more in the mood of enjoying some outdoors instead of remaining stuck with a “geek” alone in his residence.
