• It is very difficult to find quiet places in the fast-paced life of today.
• However, I would like to talk about a place where I go quite often and I find great peace there.
• The place I am referring to is a Sikh temple in my hometown, Gurdwara Sukhchainana Sahib.
• I go there once a week, sometimes with family and sometimes with friends.
• Sometimes we walk to the gurdwara, and sometimes we go by car. It is about 3 km from my home.

“Describe a quiet place you like to spend your time in”
1. Is it hard to find quiet places in cities?
Yes, it’s very hard to find quiet places in cities nowadays because of increasing urbanization and cars on the street.
I think that’s one of the major reasons people go on vacations. Unfortunately, tourist spots are even more crowded.
2. Why is it quieter in the countryside?
The main reason is the lack of traffic and industries in cities. Moreover, there is a lot of greenery which absorbs noise rather than reflecting it.
3. Why do people go to quiet places?
I think the main reason is so that can think peacefully and concentrate on their work. Noise is distracting and it also reduces our efficiency.
5. Compared with young people, do old people prefer to live in quiet places?
I think both the old and young prefer quiet places but young people cannot enjoy the luxury of living in quiet places like the countryside as they cannot get good jobs there.
4. Why do some people not like quiet places?
Some people do not like quiet places because they want fun and frolic all around them. They want activity and noise all around them.
5. Do you know other quiet places?
There are many quiet places in the countryside. Many of my friends live in villages.

6. Do you need a quiet place when you are working?
Yes, I do appreciate a quiet place when I’m working, but unfortunately, it is not always possible. So I’ve got used to some amount of noise around me.

People like to spend time in quiet places because sometimes they want to be with themselves, then they go to temples or quiet places, and feel relieved of their stress.

I have many friends who like listening to loud music. They say that it kills the background noise of the vehicle.
