Sample Answer:

One of my college friends once gave me a fish bowl with 5 gold fishes and that was an exceptional gift for me. Before that, I never had any kind of pet or aquarium at my home and gradually I started feeling the passion on such kind of hobbies. I was very sad to have it broken one day all of a sudden. Though I have bought another one with new fishes, but I still feel bad about my carelessness to have the fish bowl broken by me

The fish bowl was given to me by Maria as to congratulate me for being the highest scorer in Mathematics in the second term exam in our college. She was the second best scorer! I was a bit confused when she one day gave me the gift. However, I placed it near my study table and often looked at it. I bought some colourful stones and fish foods afterwards and the fishes became something very favourite to me. One day I was cleaning my room and don’t know how but I hit the bowl with a broom and it fell on the floor and was broken completely. The fishes were scattered in the room and immediately bought a jar and placed them in it

I felt very sad about this unexpected incidence. The fishes died in few hours and that made me even more depressed. The gifts are always inspiring and though I have brought another fish bowl with new fishes for it, it does not replace the old one I had. I felt really sad and when this happened, I thought it was completely my mistake and I should have been more careful about it. You know this was an instantaneous sad experience and I felt bad about it at that time. If that have been something I bought myself, I would not have felt that bad. The feeling was more bitter as it was a gift and the fishes died.
