    U turn of my life
    It was one of dull mornings of December’s winter as far as I concerned. Days and nights were passing like swift. There was no passion in my life remained. I lost interest in my education as it was not of my Choice but compromise. I had preferred to choose college upon my interest which benefited me on financial terms. This compromise started breaking me from inside. I was badly suffered in exams however I was able to get it just pass class. I had started ignoring my friends and parents. I was totally disheartened until that night. I met my friend Sandip who was in my neighborhood. He offered me to come along with him for a night journey to the temple. He had already arranged a bike. I ignored to inform at my home that I will be going late. When I went to his home to pick him, he was lying to his parents that we are going some other place. Suddenly a bell like sound rang in mind and said ” hey look buddy, when you lie while going out, there are 100% chances that some kind of misfortune will happen.” I shouted in my mind” shut up, It won’t happen like what you are suggesting, please stop this”
    Meanwhile Sandip pushed me outside and told “just give me 5 min, I will wrap up all this things.”
    I went to the bike and started feeling it’s shape and splendor. Again a voice rang in my mind said” look buddy, this is new bike and It’s my apprehension that you should not go with him. There could be some unfortunate may happen.” I replied in my mind “ it will not happen like this so please keep quiet.”
    It was much cooler night that yesterday. I had just a shirt and half sweater. Sandip wore enough to protect him from cold and wind while driving. We started journey and Sandip geared himself in tope gear with a speed of 100 Km/hrs. we left out town border and took main road. I was feeling like I have been kept inside a freezer with continuous water cool wind transferred over my head. As it was sugar production season, lots of vehicles were moving on roads carrying full of sugarcane. Suddenly an empty truck passed us so fast with full upper lights on leaving behind a total darkness. When we had recovered and suddenly noticed that a tractor carrying sugarcane was merely 5 m to 7m away from us and we thrashed to that tractor in a blink’s time. It was awefully horrible. For a few seconds I saw my death in front of my eyes. Everything happened in an apace and fortunately I had just few scratches apart from swelling and incidentally a two inch away wound from an eye. On the other hand Sandip’s position was so serious that he had to operate next day. His both the knees were separated. In that whole night I could not able to sleep as I was not able to forget paining Sandip. In that whole night I introspected myself. I realized that life and time are so precious that you have to spend with due care. I remembered the thing that whatever you do it; do with your best attitude and here come results I have topped in final year exam of my graduation.
