Talk about an accomplishment which helped to boost your confidence - What was the accomplishment - How it boosted your confidence - How did the community people come to know about it - What was their reaction

Everyone makes some accomplishments in one’s life.
Some accomplishments are big and some are small.
But each accomplishment gives some confidence to the person.
Here I am going to talk about an accomplishment which really boosted my confidence.
When I was in 10th I took part in a science fair.
I was selected to represent my school.
Actually four students were selected.
We made a model to show different types of pollution.
Our model was very beautiful.
Each one of us had to speak turn wise on the model.
I used to be very stage shy.
But during that fair I spoke very nicely.
My speech was appreciated by one and all.
Then I realised that I too had oratorical akills.
We won the first prize.
The judges specially mentioned that the prize was mainly due to the verbal description of the model.
That really boosted my confidence.
The next day there was this news in the local paper Jag Baani. My photograph was also there in the paper.
Even the cable TV had covered the whole fair and so many people of the community came to know about it.
They all called and congratulated me.
I was on cloud nine.
I can never forget the day.
In my speech on the model, I talked about the three types of pollution – air pollution, water pollution and noise pollution.
I also talked about global warming.
I also suggested steps by which we could reduce global warming.

Cue card Talk about a situation in your life that made you laugh from your heart - what was the occasion, - when was that, - who witnessed it with you, - and why it made you laugh.

It has been rightly said that laughter is the best medicine.
Unfortunately in the fast paced hectic lifestyle of today we are forgetting to realise the importance of this free medicine.
Even doctors are recommending this therapy for many depressive disorders.
Nowadays people have again begun to realise its importance.
No wonder, we can see many sitcoms on TV nowadays such as Comedy Circus and Chhote Miyan.
Laughter clubs have also opened in many cities where people come to laugh out their worries and stress.
I have also faced many situations when I burst into peals of laughter.
Here I would like to talk about one when I really laughed from my heart.
It was my cousins wedding two months ago and we were all dancing on the beats of DJ.
The grooms father, that is my uncle had taken a few pegs of whiskey.
He was dancing the maximum.
His odd and weird dancing steps were very hilarious and everyone was laughing at him.
But he was not at all perturbed.
He was thoroughly enjoying himself.
My aunt tried to stop him many times but he wouldn’t listen.
He was wearing a silken dhoti kurta.
Suddenly he tripped and his dhoti came off.
That was the most hilarious moment of all.
The bride and the groom also had a hearty laugh.
The photographer captured it all very nicely in his video camera.
Even today when we see that we all have a hearty laugh.
So this is the situation when I laughed from my heart.
