Descriptive Paragraph Writing Class 9 CBSE Format, Topics, Examples, Samples

Solved examples.

1. Write a descriptive paragraph, in

about 100-150 words, on ‘A Friendly Clown’. Ans. A FRIENDLY CLOWN

one corner of my dresser, sits a smiling toy clown on a tiny unicycle–a gift I

received last Christmas from my close friend. The clown’s short yellow hair,

made of yarn, covers its ears but is parted above the eyes. The blue eyes are

outlined in black with thin, dark lashes flowing from the brows. ft has

cherry-red cheeks, nose, and lips, and its broad grin disappears into the wide,

white ruffle around its neck. The clown wears a fluffy, two-tone nylon costume.

The left side of the outfit is light blue, and the right side is red. The two

colors merge in a dark line that runs down the center of the small outfit.

Surrounding its ankles and disguising its long black shoes, are big pink bows.

The white spokes on the wheels of the unicycle gather in the center and expand

to the black tire so that the wheel somewhat resembles the inner half of a

grapefruit. The clown and unicycle together stand about a foot high. As a

cherished gift from my good friend Tran, this colorful figure greets me with a

smile every time I enter my room.

2. Write a descriptive paragraph, in

about 100450 words, on ‘Gregory—My Pet Cat’.

Ans. GREGORY—MY PET CAT

is my beautiful grey Persian cat. He walks with pride and grace, performing a

dance of disdain as he slowly lifts and lowers each paw with the delicacy of a

ballet dancer. His pride, however, does not extend to his appearance, for he

spends most of his time indoors, watching television and growing fat. He enjoys

TV commercials, especially those for Meow Mix and 9 Lives. His familiarity with

cat food commercials has led him to reject generic brands of cat food in favor

of only the most expensive brands. Gregory is as finicky about visitors as he

is about what he eats—befriending some and repelling others. He may snuggle up

against your ankle, begging to be petted, or he may imitate a skunk and stain

your favorite trousers. Gregory does not do this to establish his territory,

as many cat experts think, but to humiliate me because he is jealous of- my

friends. After my guests have fled, I look at the old fleabag snoozing and

smiling to himself in front of the television set, and I have to forgive him

for his obnoxious, but endearing habits.

3. Write a descriptive paragraph, in

about 100-150 words, about the house of your dreams. You can invent your own

The guest room is facing to a part of swimming pool. The left wing is a way to

kitchen and dining room. In the hall to the kitchen and dining room, you can

find a door to my family main room. When you open the door, there is a glass

hall towards the children’s room. if we go through the glass hail from the

guest room, you can find my room facing the swimming pool. And the glass hail

is also connecting my room on the right wing and dining room on the left wing.

There is a folded-glass door at the backyard where you can find swimming pool

right after you open the glass door. A small at made of stones is next to the

                      ANSWER

[DESCRIPTIVE PARAGRAPH]

1 . THE BLOND GUITAR

My most valuable possession is an old, slightly warped blond guitar—the first

instrument I taught myself how to play. It’s nothing fancy, just a Madeira folk

guitar, all scuffed and scratched and fingerprinted. At the top is a bramble of

copper-wound strings, each one hooked through the eye of a silver tuning key.

The strings are stretched down a long, slim neck, its frets tarnished, the wood

worn by years of fingers pressing chords and picking notes. The body of the

Madeira is shaped like an enormous yellow pear, one that was slightly damaged in

shipping. The blond wood has been chipped and gouged to gray, particularly

where the pick guard fell off years ago. No, its not a beautiful instrument,

but it still lets me make music, and for that I will always treasure it.

2. THE KITCHEN

The kitchen held our lives together. My mother worked in it all day long, we ate in it almost all meals except the breakfast, I did my homework and first writing

at the kitchen table, and in winter, I often had a bed made up for me on three

kitchen chairs near the stove. On the wall, just over the table, hung a long

horizontal mirror that sloped to a ship’s prow at each end and was lined in

cherry wood. It took up the whole wall, and drew every object in the kitchen to

itself. The walls were a fiercely speckled whitewash, so often re-whitened by

my father in slack seasons that the paint looked as if it had been squeezed and

cracked into the walls. A large electric bulb hung down the center of the

kitchen at the end of a chain that had been hooked into the ceiling; the old

gas ring and key still jutted out of the wall like antlers. In the corner, next

to the toilet, was the sink at which we washed, and the square tube in which my

mother did our clothes. Above it, tacked to the shelf on which were pleasantly

ranged square, blue-bordered white sugar and spice jars, hung calendars from

the National Bank and the Workmen’s Circle; receipts for the payment of

insurance premiums, and household bills on a spindle; two little boxes engraved

with Hindi letters.

INSPIRING TEACHER

There are some inspiring teachers in my life. But the one whom I am going to tell you about is really a great teacher for me. His name is Shyam Sagar. He was my lecturer in Sanskrit Literature, University of Delhi. He was the third person

who has the highest knowledge of Sanskrit linguistic in the world. His

specialty was in calligraphy and philosophy. He doesn’t have a high education

title. In fact, he was a truck driver in Tamil Nadu before he was appointed to

be a guest lecturer in University of Delhi. When we saw him for the first time,

he didn’t look like a lecturer. He was carrying a black plastic bag and wore a

simple outfit. What impressed us at that time was that he was talking as if we

had watched an English movie! He didn’t have many rules in his class but he

knew how to attract us to study more and more. Every time we studied

linguistic, he let us feel and try the words, so we had no doubt in pronouncing

them. He was able to let us understand phrases matching to situations and Tamil culture. His humble heart and persistence made us respect him more. As a result, we always tried our best in his class because we did not want to

disappoint him. I have been admired by his attitude towards his students, and I

try to model him, yet I’m still learning.

4. MY FAVOURITE PLACE

My favorite place which is important to me is my countryside house. I have very bright impressions and memories related to it. That is the place where I have grown up, met my friends and where I have spent almost all my life.

It is a big house with a yard. In summer, there are a lot of flowers which make

the outlook beautiful In the backyard, there is a “place where I love to

spend time, lying in hammock and dreaming under the tree.

Inside the house, there is a kitchen, a big living room, where you can invite guests, friends and chat with them, watch TV and relax. Next to the living room there are rooms, which are always sunlit during daytime, so you wake up with a very good mood in the morning. The house has a very homely atmosphere I will always like this place, because I have many good, pleasant memories and feelings about it.

5. MY HOMETOWN

grew up in Shimla which is located in the state of Himachal Pradesh in the

northern part of India. Large, old oak trees and green lawns, surrounded by

hills covered in pine trees formed my neighborhood. The streets were quiet,

with only the sound of birds singing and some cars passing every once in a

while. During the cold, snowy winters, most people stayed inside, and one could

smell wood burning in fireplaces and see smoke coming out of chimneys. In

summer, one could see people walking dogs or jogging, smell cut-fresh grass,

and see squirrels jumping from tree to tree. My hometown made me feel secure

and comfortable. Now, I usually visit Shimla once a year. Not a lot has changed

except now there are more people, more traffic, and more places to go, such as

shopping malls and restaurants. I feel nostalgic when I think about Shimla.

6. MY LOVING SISTER

has a family, but only few are lucky to have an inspiring, strong and caring

sister like mine. My sister’s name is Radhika Kapoor. My sister is currently staying

with her friend’s family in Patel Nagar as she is pursuing an advanced academic

program. She works her brain off to meet deadlines, produce new ideas, and on

top of that she tries to fit time in her busy schedule every night to call or

text us. For , engineering, she has

sacrificed so much to be the best. Although engineering doesn’t define her,

what she loves about it is that it’s a challenge she has to face. Radhika has

everything that a little sister would have wanted. She’s understanding,

intelligent, funny, and charismatic. Radhika brings solution to every problem.

regardless the situation. My sister is my teacher. She guides me through my

life. Radhika always advises me on what to be avoided and what would bring

benefits to me. Radhika is sincere to everyone and herself. I love my sister

and no one can do anything. to separate us. I hope that someday I can take good

care of her as she has cared for me.

MY GRANDMOTHER

person I will always remember is my grandmother, because she was the most

amazing person I had ever known. My grandmother was a person everyone wanted to

be around, she always put a smile on our faces without even trying. She had the

finniest laugh and was always cracking jokes which was probably the reason why

we were always laughing. My grandma would help anyone no matter hat the situation was even if it meant going

out of her way to help. She was very caring and always had a welcoming home for

us; my cousins and I always liked staying with her on the weekends.

My grandma was like my best friend. I could talk to her about anything, and she

knew exactly how to solve my problems. She also used to make the best idlis and

payasam. I always looked forward to Diwali walking into her house, smelling all

the warm food, waiting for us. I will always cherish all the memories I had

with my grandma. She raised me to be a better person and to look at things in a

positive way. She was a strong, loving, caring, funny woman and had many things

to give to others. An one who met her will cherish forever.

FRIEND-MY CHAMP

 Mohan has been a good friend of mine for some

years now. Our friendship goes all the way hack to when we first met in primary

school. Although we were very young and seemed to not have too much in common,

we somehow found some reasons to bond and create a friendship. It is a

friendship that has become stronger over the time and through our shared life

experiences. He is my exact opposite in terms of physical attributes. He is

taller than me with dark hair and black eyes. He also has better fashion sense

than I have with his standard jean pants and black shirt. Black is his

favorite color, so it tends to show up in most of his clothes. He is also

more sociable than I am. Because of his talent for drawing, he often attracts

people to look at his 3D designs on his laptop. He has a creative mind, so he

has a lot of projects that he works on whenever he has some free time. He is

the friend that I come to when I feel troubled or pressured. It is his voice of

reason that helps me calm down and reminds me to remain composed at all times.

He is my best friend because he cares about me and works on our friendship with

me. I can only hope that we will be friends forever.

9. PLEASURES OF WATCHING A

combines the pleasures of radio and cinema. It has become the most popular

means of entertainment as it provides variety of entertainment at a minimum

cost. Every home has a TV nowadays. The facility of cable network has increased

the pleasures of television. Now we have hundreds of channels available to us.

Each person can watch programs of his choice. Instant and live coverage of

sports items, films and film-based programs, TV serials and soap operas are

the sort of programs which are liked the most. Television watching is

entertaining as well as informative. Programs on current affairs enlighten

us. However, like every invention of science, TV has darker aspects also.

Excessive TV watching proves harmful. So, let us be moderate in enjoying the

pleasures of television.

                               REPUBLIC DAY CELEBRATION

our country celebrated its Republic Day on 26th January. i could not go to India Gate lawns to watch the parade of

different states. Therefore, I had to sit in front of my TV I was surprised at

the smart uniforms and the enthusiasm of different battalions of ail the three

branches of the forces. They were followed by the young brave children who

seemed to be very happy on the elephants as all of them had received bravery

awards. The tableau of the states was the main attraction as the colorful artists

presented the dances of their states with a message. The people gathered there,

were impressed by the school children who presented a number of items. I also

wanted to join them. Afterward, I realised that on TV I was only able to

  • Descriptive Essay

You ever read a really good travel essay? It makes you believe that you are there with the writer, it paints a vivid picture. This is because the essay is so descriptive, that it appeals to our senses. As a result, our brain starts imagining it. Let’s learn more about a descriptive essay.

Suggested Videos

What is a descriptive essay.

Our brain is so powerful that it can easily imagine scenarios and make use of our senses. The job of such an essay is to appeal to our senses in a way that it creates an image in our minds. Hence a descriptive essay plays with at least one of our five senses (touch, smell, taste, hearing, sight).

In other words, the description of the person, place or thing in an essay should be really vivid. This means it after reading the essay, the reader should be left feeling like they actually know the person, have held the object or have visited the place.

Descriptive Essay

In the light of the above-mentioned things, it is comfortable to say that a descriptive essay provides for artistic freedom. For example, assume you’re writing about a house.

Instead of simply stating that the house was beautiful, you should talk about the color of the house, the garden in front of it i.e. all the details about the house. In that way, the readers would be able to imagine the house because of a nicely written essay.

Contents of a Descriptive Essay

As it is with most of the written forms of English literature, the basic structure of a descriptive essay also comprises of an introduction, a body, and the conclusion.

  • The introduction of a descriptive essay should be interesting enough to catch a reader’s attention. The introduction should be all about creating a base or a background for the person, place or thing you’re going to describe in your essay.
  • Next, the main body of a descriptive essay should appeal to the reader’s senses. This includes unfolding the information by creating images in the reader’s mind. A trick to achieving this is to explain how the subject about which you’re writing in your descriptive essay, appeals to your senses.
  • Lastly, the conclusion should summarize the whole essay. Along with again going over the main details about the essay’s subject, you should end the essay in a way that it gives a sense of completion.

How to Write a Descriptive Essay?

Before starting off with a descriptive essay, thinking about the subject in detail will be your best bet. Just take some time off and imagine about the subject. This means to imagine how the subject appeals to your senses- how does it smell, looks like and so on.

Further, if the subject is related to a past experience think about how it felt or your experience with the subject. Next, express all of these on the paper right in front of you. You can also take some time to think about how you want your essay to unfold. Lastly, a revision of the essay provides a great opportunity for improvements and small tweaks. Remember that a descriptive essay is all about teasing the reader’s senses.

A Solved Example For You

Q:   A descriptive essay should:

  • Narrate a story.
  • Appeal to the reader’s senses.
  • Present an argument
  • None of the above

Ans:   The correct option is ‘B’. A descriptive essay should appeal to the reader’s senses in such a way that the reader feels at one with the subject of the essay.

Descriptive writing calls for close attention to factual and sensory details: show, don't tell . Whether your subject is as small as a strawberry or as large as a fruit farm, you should begin by observing your subject closely. Examine it with all five senses, and write down any details and descriptions that come to mind.

Next, go a little further afield with your list and associate your chosen topic or object with memories, opinions, and impressions. This list may give you some ideas for metaphors and possibly even a direction for your paragraph or essay. Then make a list of verbs that could be associated with your topic or object. This will help you have more variety than just "buzzing be" verbs and keep the writing and imagery descriptive and active.

After your brainstorming phase, go through your list and decide which details and descriptions you like the most and are most significant. Don't cross off the others, though. At this point in the project, you want to be open to any direction your imagination and writing take you.

Good advice from Steven King from his book On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft :

If you want to be a successful writer, you must be able to describe [your subject], and in a way that will cause your reader to prickle with recognition. ... Thin description leaves the reader feeling bewildered and nearsighted. Overdescription buries him or her in details and images . The trick is to find a happy medium.

My first day at school – an exercise in descriptive writing.

Every child’s first day at school is always very exciting. At least, it was so in my case. I remember my first day at school very vividly. I remember it was my mother who took me to my school on my first day there.

My First Day at School

I had a small bag in my hand. It contained an exercise book, a pencil and an eraser beside me. I actually did not need all these things but had insisted on my taking them with me. My father had already filled up the admission form and submitted it to the school Principal a number of days before. Now, I had to appear for an interview. My mother went to the school superintendent and got the admission form. She took it to the Principal. Before entering the Principal’s office, she had to wait outside for a few minutes. She sent a slip in and was soon called inside. My mother took me inside the Principal’s office. I felt a little awed as I saw a big tall lady with a dominating personality occupying a revolving chair. However, her sweet voice soon allayed my fears. She studied the admission form quickly. She expressed satisfaction regarding my age and my parents’ qualifications. She asked me to come close to her. I moved forward rather sheepishly. But she patted me on the back lovingly. Then she asked me a few very simple questions such as my name, my papa’s and mummy’s names, etc. Meanwhile, I had gathered courage and I was able to answer all the questions without much hesitation. The Principal was satisfied with my answers and she expressed her satisfaction through a broad smile. She wrote ‘yes’ at the appropriate column in the admission form. My mother along with me came out and deposited the fee with the fee clerk. I had got admission to the nursery class. It was, however, on the next day I was actually sent to attend the class. The day of my admission to the school was really an exciting one for. As soon as the bell declaring the end of the recess period goes, the students hurry to their classes and studies again start in right earnest.

The Role of Schools in Preventing Communicable Diseases

  Before we embark on addressing this topic, we should try to understand about communicable diseases. Surely, communicable diseases, as the very word ‘communicable’ implies are those diseases which are communicated from person to person. This communication of diseases often takes place through certain media such as air or water. The commonest communicable diseases ale T.B, asthma, bronchitis, cholera, Hepatitis B and C, diarrhoea, dysentery, etc. In order to prevent these diseases, it is essential to keep the atmosphere neat, clean and hygienic such as not to create an ambience for the concerned bacteria to grow and flourish. It is essential to take effective steps to prevent the multiplication of flies, mosquitoes, cockroaches, etc. which act as agents who carry the disease germs to the victims. Hands must be washed before eating and all clothes and utensils must be kept clean and washed after every usage. Preventive vaccines for diseases such as Hepatitis, cholera, measles, etc. must he got inoculated quite an in time. As for the school’s role in preventing communicable diseases, effective and well-meaning functions for the purpose may be held in schools, where people from the town and adjoining villages can be invited. At such functions, causes of such diseases and their remedies can be highlighted. Students should be encouraged to visit slums and rural areas, especially during summer vacation, to enlighten the people regarding the necessity of keeping their surroundings clean.  In case a disease spreads in an epidemic form, schools can be changed into temporary hospitals and dispensaries where the patients, can be treated by experts and the school teachers and students can do all kinds of social service that is necessary to make the campaign a success.

A descriptive essay gives a vivid, detailed description of something—generally a place or object, but possibly something more abstract like an emotion. This type of essay , like the narrative essay , is more creative than most academic writing .

Descriptive essay topics, tips for writing descriptively, descriptive essay example, other interesting articles, frequently asked questions about descriptive essays.

When you are assigned a descriptive essay, you’ll normally be given a specific prompt or choice of prompts. They will often ask you to describe something from your own experience.

  • Describe a place you love to spend time in.
  • Describe an object that has sentimental value for you.

You might also be asked to describe something outside your own experience, in which case you’ll have to use your imagination.

  • Describe the experience of a soldier in the trenches of World War I.
  • Describe what it might be like to live on another planet.

Sometimes you’ll be asked to describe something more abstract, like an emotion.

If you’re not given a specific prompt, try to think of something you feel confident describing in detail. Think of objects and places you know well, that provoke specific feelings or sensations, and that you can describe in an interesting way.

The key to writing an effective descriptive essay is to find ways of bringing your subject to life for the reader. You’re not limited to providing a literal description as you would be in more formal essay types.

Make use of figurative language, sensory details, and strong word choices to create a memorable description.

Use figurative language

Figurative language consists of devices like metaphor and simile that use words in non-literal ways to create a memorable effect. This is essential in a descriptive essay; it’s what gives your writing its creative edge and makes your description unique.

Take the following description of a park.

This tells us something about the place, but it’s a bit too literal and not likely to be memorable.

If we want to make the description more likely to stick in the reader’s mind, we can use some figurative language.

Here we have used a simile to compare the park to a face and the trees to facial hair. This is memorable because it’s not what the reader expects; it makes them look at the park from a different angle.

You don’t have to fill every sentence with figurative language, but using these devices in an original way at various points throughout your essay will keep the reader engaged and convey your unique perspective on your subject.

Use your senses

Another key aspect of descriptive writing is the use of sensory details. This means referring not only to what something looks like, but also to smell, sound, touch, and taste.

Obviously not all senses will apply to every subject, but it’s always a good idea to explore what’s interesting about your subject beyond just what it looks like.

Even when your subject is more abstract, you might find a way to incorporate the senses more metaphorically, as in this descriptive essay about fear.

Choose the right words

Writing descriptively involves choosing your words carefully. The use of effective adjectives is important, but so is your choice of adverbs , verbs , and even nouns.

It’s easy to end up using clichéd phrases—“cold as ice,” “free as a bird”—but try to reflect further and make more precise, original word choices. Clichés provide conventional ways of describing things, but they don’t tell the reader anything about your unique perspective on what you’re describing.

Try looking over your sentences to find places where a different word would convey your impression more precisely or vividly. Using a thesaurus can help you find alternative word choices.

  • My cat runs across the garden quickly and jumps onto the fence to watch it from above.
  • My cat crosses the garden nimbly and leaps onto the fence to survey it from above.

However, exercise care in your choices; don’t just look for the most impressive-looking synonym you can find for every word. Overuse of a thesaurus can result in ridiculous sentences like this one:

  • My feline perambulates the allotment proficiently and capers atop the palisade to regard it from aloft.

An example of a short descriptive essay, written in response to the prompt “Describe a place you love to spend time in,” is shown below.

Hover over different parts of the text to see how a descriptive essay works.

On Sunday afternoons I like to spend my time in the garden behind my house. The garden is narrow but long, a corridor of green extending from the back of the house, and I sit on a lawn chair at the far end to read and relax. I am in my small peaceful paradise: the shade of the tree, the feel of the grass on my feet, the gentle activity of the fish in the pond beside me.

My cat crosses the garden nimbly and leaps onto the fence to survey it from above. From his perch he can watch over his little kingdom and keep an eye on the neighbours. He does this until the barking of next door’s dog scares him from his post and he bolts for the cat flap to govern from the safety of the kitchen.

With that, I am left alone with the fish, whose whole world is the pond by my feet. The fish explore the pond every day as if for the first time, prodding and inspecting every stone. I sometimes feel the same about sitting here in the garden; I know the place better than anyone, but whenever I return I still feel compelled to pay attention to all its details and novelties—a new bird perched in the tree, the growth of the grass, and the movement of the insects it shelters…

Sitting out in the garden, I feel serene. I feel at home. And yet I always feel there is more to discover. The bounds of my garden may be small, but there is a whole world contained within it, and it is one I will never get tired of inhabiting.

descriptive essay topics class 9

The key difference is that a narrative essay is designed to tell a complete story, while a descriptive essay is meant to convey an intense description of a particular place, object, or concept.

Narrative and descriptive essays both allow you to write more personally and creatively than other kinds of essays , and similar writing skills can apply to both.

If you’re not given a specific prompt for your descriptive essay , think about places and objects you know well, that you can think of interesting ways to describe, or that have strong personal significance for you.

The best kind of object for a descriptive essay is one specific enough that you can describe its particular features in detail—don’t choose something too vague or general.

120 Descriptive Essay Topics to Spark Your Creativity

Writing a descriptive essay is a creative task. It requires using sensory language and expressive means, such as similes, metaphors, personifications, etc., for creating a vivid description of an object, place, person, or experience. The best descriptive essays are usually based on the writer's personal lived reality. However, some good descriptive essay topics require research and imagination to explore. Your instructors might give you one of such assignments to see how well you have absorbed class materials and how confident you are with the knowledge.

Finding a suitable topic to explore is no mean feat. With this blog, we hope to help you with the task. Below, you will find 120 topics grouped by a common theme and academic level they are suitable for. Some of the ideas for descriptive essays are linked to full samples in our free database. Read them to understand descriptive writing better and maybe borrow a trick or two to make your own essay even more compelling.

How to Choose a Descriptive Essay Topic

Before we proceed to our descriptive essay topics list, let's first prime you on brainstorming the ideas and finding suitable topics independently.

The first thing you need to ask yourself is, "What are my limits?" Are you free to use your imagination, or are you restricted to the facts you have witnessed? For example, for your history class, they might ask you to write a descriptive essay of an archeological site you've been digging. That would be a description based on your experience. However, they could also ask you to reconstruct the site and describe what it could look like centuries ago. That would be an assignment based on research but also requiring your imagination and creativity.

With that in mind, you need to inspect what resources you have at your disposal. If you have to base your essay on research, look at what literature you have readily available. If sources abound, you can narrow your topic down for a more efficient search. If, however, the information is scarce, scale up a bit to find more data.

If you have to write a description based on your experience, the best strategy for a good descriptive essay topic would be to go for something that made a strong impression on you. This way, it would be easier to create a powerful description from memory. Also, make sure you touch on points relevant to your class or this particular assignment. For example, you need to write about the importance of emotional intelligence in your practice as a nurse. For this, you must select a case that is both memorable to you and relevant to the topic.

Descriptive Essay Topics for Middle School

First, let us zero in on the academic level. Here are some fun descriptive paper ideas suitable for middle-school students. Some of the suggestions are easy; others are more challenging. However, they all provide an opportunity to give a colorful description and tell a story through images.
