Sample Answer:
I went to Nepal for some business purposes and came to know about a riot between two groups of Hindus in India. It was a communal riot and sparked for some minor reasons. I heard that a couple of members of both the communities were killed while a lot of them were injured to a severe extent. Police controlled the situation but it was too late when the police arrived on the spot. This is a nice candidate task card and I am happy to get it in my share. I will describe the entire event in brief now.

I went to Nepal a couple of years ago to deal with a local company of the country who wanted to import some goods that my company manufactured. During the meeting, someone entered and told that a serious communal riot has been going on in the neighbouring country and the number of injuries is increasing. The man entered in the middle of the meeting only to share the news as the father of that company owner lived in India.

Later I heard the news in television and am international television channel was broadcasting the event live. The television report attracted attention from all of us and we were thundered seeing the attacking scenes. They were severely attacking each other and even the television reporter also had to take shelter from the violence of the people. The meeting was cancelled and the company owner immediately tried to contact his father in India.

It was a pathetic event and a notable number of people were affected in various degrees. I was sad hearing about the people who lost their lives. The issue became highlighted in both the local and international media. I returned my home with a heart filled with sadness.
