My house is full of various types of furniture, that are laying there for ages, and that are also serving many purposes of my house. But, today, I would like to take this opportunity to talk about a piece of furniture which is new, and which I find very beautiful.
This is my favorite Computer desk which my family has purchased recently from a famous chain furniture store in my country. Although it was primarily purchased for my computer desk now my mother uses it for practically all purposes, from ironing our clothes to eating our afternoon snacks. Apart from this, it is made of sagwan wood so this is expensive. It is in rectangle shape with white color. I am keen to play online games on a laptop, and this table is perfect for me. It has wheels with an adjustable controller. Most interestingly, I can rotate it in any direction up-word and down-word. It has three drawers for keeping my belongings. And it has a secret drawer with a strong pattern lock where I can keep my pocket money and so on. Moreover, it has RV lights on the edges of this table which look so dynamic. Earlier when try to study on bed I always feel sleepy, but now can study with more concentration. Furthermore, it is also useful for my body posture. It has a dustbin box when I have to sharpen the pencil I use it.
Lastly, this is a piece of furniture which I like the most in my house.
Part 3:- Follow-ups of Describe an object you find particularly beautiful (For example, a painting, sculpture, piece of jewelry/furniture, etc.).
1. Do you think there are more beautiful things now than in the past?
In my personal opinion, traditional art and sculptures are much more beautiful. I think in the past, it was easier for artists to find patrons in the form of kings and nobles and they could focus on their art without any financial worries, However, today it is much harder to earn money as an artist. The art being made today also reflects that it is done more as a hobby rather than as a profession and the works produced are far behind those of the past.
2. Do you think there are many scenic spots in India or there are many more in other countries?
I think India is one of the most diverse countries. It has everything, mountains, rivers, deserts, and beaches. To add to it, it has one of the richest cultural histories. So, I think it is hard to beat India in this regard. However, India is also one of the most highly populated and polluted countries in the world and because of this, a lot of scenic spots cannot match the pristine and untouched beauty present in some of the rich European and American countries.
