Band 9.0 Sample Answer Ideas.
• There are many times when I have waited in queues.
• Actually, waiting in queue is pretty normal in India because of the enormous population.
• But one time I can never forget is the time of demonetization.
• In 2017, the Indian PM declared that Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes would not be legal tender from the next day onwards.
• This was done in a very confidential manner as the purpose was to tackle the black money in the market.
• As such the news was only privy to a few government ministers and officials when it was announced.
• Also, to maintain secrecy, the new notes were sent to banks at the last minute.
• Because of this, there was a severe shortage of notes in banks for the next few days.
• People stood in lines to get their old notes replaced.
• Every day, people were allowed to replace only up to Rs 2000.
• The lines were huge.
• I remember reaching the bank at 9 o clock in the morning and still being about the 50th person in the queue.
• My turn came after nearly 2 hours.
• It was very irritating to stand in the queue.
• But I could understand the reason why the government took such a step.
• So, I complained about standing in the line, but deep down I appreciated the step government took.
• Unfortunately, I had to this 2-3 times that week.
• The first day, I didn’t imagine that it would take so long.
• But the next day I was prepared, I took a water bottle and my headphones.
• I listened to music while I waited, to pass the time.
