Hi Anupam,

Yours is a very interesting question. Though the topic says "Describe" the style of the essay has to be narrative. This is because you are required to narrate incidents that made you happy and sad. When in doubt, remember that Narrative refers to retelling a story or an incident. Whereas Descriptive means to describe what you see, hear and feel.
