Model Answer:

No doubt, we are biased in our behaviour and attitude no matter how hard we try not to be. As a result, we tend to prefer someone or something while ignoring the others at our discretion. However, when we say that we like or prefer someone, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the persons, we like, are “better” than others, but it is just how we like to “feel” about a certain person or the others. And, the same also holds true when we say that someone is “beautiful” or “handsome” just as when I say that my maternal uncle is handsome.

Well, he is my uncle - my most favourite uncle in that, so, he has to be “handsome”. I mean, how possibly a favourite uncle can’t be “handsome” to his nephew!? And, by the way, I know my uncle to be “handsome” and nice from the time I have come to recognize him from a very early age. He is a good looking person with a more than average height and strong, symmetrical features. But what makes his handsome to me is probably his confidence.

In fact, there is hardly a day that goes by without meeting him or talking to him since he lives very close by my family. He is a doctor by profession, but he is also treated as a “leader” figure among his community members probably because of his abilities to help others during the time of crisis, his infallible confidence as well as because of his noble profession.

So, what exactly makes my uncle “handsome”? Well, I find him handsome simply because of the ways he “carries” himself around, as well as because of the ways, he presents himself to others while always having a positive attitude. Besides, if you see your uncle to remain nicely dressed and combed most of the times, he has to be “handsome”.  Isn’t it like that?

But, if his nice attires and nicely-combed hair aren’t enough to make him look “handsome”, then his “soft words” and “smiley face”, while talking to others, should also make him a “handsome” person. Am I right? Well, if not, an uncle’s unending love and affection for his nephew and his family should certainly make the “most handsome” person in the world, and that’s exactly how much “handsome” my uncle is!
