Describe a time when you shared something with others


We humans are considered to be social animals. So today, I’d take this opportunity to talk about one such act of social kindness when me and my colleague shared a thing.

What you shared?

Actually, I have shared a laptop with my friend, precisely a Macbook pro.

Who you shared with?

And I assisted my friend Rohan with delivering a sales presentation using my Macbook.

Why you shared it?

It was the Q4(4th quarter) performance review by our company and for that we all needed to present sales figures to the senior management. And you know, in such kind of presentations, there is plethora of data to be tabulated and as such only high end laptops can collaborate all stats and figures effectively.

Rohan had a decent laptop which stopped working few days before the presentation. So he asked me to lend a supporting hand. That’s when I shared my Macbook with him to collate data and prepare his visual slides.

Explain how you felt about sharing it?

As far as are my feelings are concerned, I was contented with helping a friend. He always supported me during my rough patch and I returned the favour gladly.


In the end, I would like to tell you that…as the adage says ‘Sharing is caring’; there’s no better joy in this world than to helping someone in need.


➡️ Do you like to share?

Yes, I love to share. In fact, I shared my meals with all my friends at school. I also used to share my notes with my friends and classmates. It was a habit.

➡️ What are the consequences if children don’t like to share?

I think it might be difficult for children to make new friends if they are hesitant to share. When children grow up, they might face even bigger problems. For example, when they are working in a company and they are asked to share their responsibilities with others. If they fail to do so, they might even lose their jobs.

➡️ How do you feel about sharing accommodations with others on campus?

I am open to sharing a house with others but I am not open to sharing my room. Also, in the case of house, it would depend upon the person I have to share the accommodation with. I would love to share accommodation with people with the same mindset.

➡️ Do people in your country share public transport or use private transport?

Well, it depends on the financial status of the people. Those who can afford, like to use their own private transport. Others prefer public transport. It also depends on the availability and comfort of public transport. Ever since the AC buses have improved their frequency to Chandigarh, I prefer to travel on those than going by my car.

➡️ How could parents and teachers teach young children to share?

I suppose parents could do this by actually making children share responsibilities and things at home. For example, young children should be made to share a room. Teachers can give group assignments and encourage children to work together. When they work together and depend upon each other, they would automatically learn to share.

➡️ Would you ever share your food with someone else?

Well! Many times, I have shared my tiffin with my friends. Yes, I would readily share my food with others.
