Model Answer:
I always consider myself to be extremely lucky to have many close friends who have raised their helping hands in times when I desperately needed. Thus I have many real friends who are not only friends in good times but also for bad times. One such friend is Ricardo who helped me greatly and his contribution in my life has placed him in an important and special position in my life.

This was the time when I was a fresher in my college and I became acquainted with Ricardo. Our friendship grew deeper with time and we became very close friends. In my second year, I got involved in a local group and I was mostly interested in their theatre performance. I never knew they were indirectly involved in politics and were funded by the major political party of our city. When I got suspicious of this group’s activity I submitted my resignation and then the real dilemma started. They would not allow me to leave intentionally and started showing me how much they have already done for me. Somehow I did not care and left this group. After few months, the group was accused of doing a political vandalism and an act against the law and I got trapped. As they have not permitted me officially to resign, I was shown as an active member of this group. I was quite in trouble as my college authority took it as a serious threat towards their disciplinary rules and they started interrogating me.

In fact, I had no big connections and influences to get out from this trap and my friend Ricardo came to save me from this ploy with every connections and influence he had. I knew him merely for only 2 years at that time and to my surprise, he did everything humanly possible to save me from the disgrace.

In fact, because of his help and advice, I had been able to save myself from an unexpected danger and disgrace. Even the college authority would not have listened to me if he had not been there for me. Thus he has saved me from a disastrous experience I might have to face. After that I started feeling an immense gratitude towards him and consider his help as an important part of my life.
