:Model Answer

Technology has revolutionised the way we do things, including how we pick our holiday destinations, navigate on the road, arrange a hotel and even find a location. ‘GPS’ and ‘Google Maps’ types technology make it absolutely easy to find a location and yet I often find myself in situations when I end up giving directions to others or sometimes asking for directions

So, it was about four months ago when I went out in one evening to walk in a park as part of my daily exercise. On my way to the park, a medium-built, thirty-something man, who was walking from the opposite direction of mine, suddenly stopped and asked me how he could go to the ‘Vista Residential Area’. After I gave him directions to this place, he told me his name. Unfortunately, I no longer remember his name now. But I clearly recall that he was nicely dressed, and didn’t seem like a local resident to me

When he asked for the directions, I realised that he was heading to a different block than he was supposed to. I gave him the bad news, and I asked him to cross the road using the nearest foot-overbridge, and walk along the right-side street for around 15 minutes before crossing two intersections to reach the block he was looking for. I finally mentioned that his desired place would be just 3/4 lanes away from the entrance gate where he could find a large supermall. I also told him about a few prominent landmarks on his way to the destination. I did not forget to advise him that instead of doing all these, he could call a taxi and just tell the driver his destination

Well, from his facial expression, I felt that he was happy about the directions I gave, or at least that’s what I assumed! But it is hard to tell if he had been able to find his destination easily or not. I hope it had been easy for him as it seemed to me that he was eagerly looking to reach that place
