We are sharing the format of Diary Entry for class 9th students and it will be equally beneficial for class 8th and 7th students to attempt writing skills questions.
Writing is the writing down of events, transactions, and observations in a highly personalized manner. It is wrapped around creative thoughts and is basically the outpouring of what one feels or has experienced with regard to a particular stimulus. A diary can be written on a daily basis or at intervals, depending on the inclination of the writer.
A diary entry is a form of writing where an individual records an account of the day. We
record important and significant days and with it our personal feelings. Thus, it is a
personal document. The general format of a diary is given below.

I am really sad about what happened yesterday. I was watching the
news when suddenly I got to hear that a big earthquake had hit Nepal. I was shocked to
see so much destruction in just a matter of minutes. I was genuinely scared by what
happened and hoped there would be fewer casualties. Was praying for my friend in

Wednesday, 10 October 20XX
Today I had the bitterest experience of my life. I never had such an awful experience in
my life. I had gone to Agra for urgent work. There were very few buses running today as
most of them had been put on Election duty. I waited for two hours at the bus stop to
get on the bus. It was much crowded. People were pushing each other. Luggage was
falling over people. The bus was more than full to its capacity.
There were brawls, even fistfighting which was somehow brought under control by the
timely intervention of some elderly passengers. I somehow managed to get some space
for myself. It was really difficult to even breathe for me. Everyone was sweating. After
the journey of two hours, I came out of the bus and took a sigh of relief. I will never forget this journey in my life.
Q3. You are Neha. Today is your birthday and your father has gifted you a laptop. You are very happy to own it as you wanted to have it for a long time. Before going to bed you intend to share your joy with your diary. Write a diary entry in 100-150 words expressing your feeling.
Tuesday, 19 October 20XX
My joy knows no bounds today. It is my birthday and my father has given me a portable
laptop as a gift. It is like a dream come true as I wanted to possess one for a long time.
Now I would be able to browse the necessary information that I could not find in the library. I can’t thank my father enough for the gift that he has given me. He has never
deprived us of anything in life.
Now, I can communicate with people through email and even chat with my friends. I can
play games during my leisure time. Although, it is a small thing it holds the entire world.
I hope I am able to use this gift effectively. The Internet today can make us global. So, it
has great relevance in today’s world.

We were excited as our team was among the four finalists at the All India CBSE National
Quiz Competition, 20XX. This was an eagerly awaited moment because the final round
was being telecast live on the national channel. Truly it was a juncture when we would
have to test our worth, even as we strengthened our scores. The start was uneventful
and pallid, but in the ‘superfast’ round, our luck, and presence of mind, help us come up
with the right answers in record time. With faces beaming in jubilation we walked up to
receive the trophy as the blinding lights of cameras flashed around. The event became
the most-visited program of the year, as there were numerous telecasts of our
moment of triumph.

As a team member of the special invitees honored with India’s Bravery Award, the high
point of our felicitations included a visit to Rashtrapati Bhavan and an audience with the
President of India. As soon as we entered the premises, I was struck by the imperial and
awe-inspiring facade of the building and its plush interiors. The President congratulated
us. We then posed for a group photo with the dignitary and thereafter gorged ourselves
on the delicious spread of eats.
Finally, I walked up to the President and requested his autograph. The evening
ended with a guided tour of the Mughal Gardens, making the visit a memorable and
an enriching experience to be savored for the rest of my life. That moment of honor to
be with the President of India, the ever beautiful Mughal Gardens — the whole
experience has changed me for the better as a person!
Q6. You recently lost an expensive wristwatch belonging to your grandfather. You are now feeling afraid to confess. Express your feelings of anguish through a diary entry in 100- 150 words.

Losing and forgetting things is a constant problem for me. Earlier it was my own
things that I lost. Last week to my dismay, I lost my grandfather’s gold watch that I was
taking to the market for servicing. As soon as I discovered the loss, I went back to the
spot and scoured the area several times. I even made inquiries but to no avail. I cannot
repay the loss because it is of vintage make.
Grandfather will ask about his watch soon enough and I don’t know what I should tell
him. I am in a dilemma about whether to tell him the truth or not. Oh, how I curse myself for being so careless! As a last resort, I have decided to make a clean breast of it for my
father. He can then lodge an FIR.
