In this conversation two new college students have an introductory talk and become friends. They are sitting in the library.
Henry: Hello! May I know your name please?
Mukesh: I am Mukesh. And what’s your good name please?
Henry: My name is Henry. I am glad to talk to you. I recently took admission in B.A. English Hons.
Mukesh: I am also a new student. I have taken B.A. Pass. Have you liked this college?
Henry: Definitely. It is a reputed college. I appreciate (admire, praise) it for its strict discipline and good teachers.
Mukesh: I agree. Library of this college is also impressive. It has a lot of useful books.
Henry: Yes, it is true. Where do you live?
Mukesh: I live at Tilak Nagar, and you?
Henry: I live at Timarpur. What are your parents?
Mukesh: My father is an I.A.S. officer in finance ministry, and my mother is a teacher.
Henry: You have well-educated parents.
Mukesh: What about your parents?
Henry: My father is a businessman. He exports ready-made garments. And my mother is a housewife. Though we have two cars yet my parents insist(demand or say firmly) that I should go to college by bus.
Mukesh: I think travelling by bus is more comfortable. I myself come by bus.
Henry: But I dislike buses. There is rush and they never come on time. State government is not managing the bus service properly.
Mukesh: What are your hobbies?
Henry: I have only one hobby – playing cricket.
Mukesh: I also like cricket. But I play only on Sunday. Are you a batsman or bowler?
Henry: I am a batsman. I was captain of my school cricket team. Though my parents keep criticising me for my cricket craze.
Mukesh: Now it is time to attend the class. We shall meet again after the class.
Henry: Oh sure!
