It was a period of time when I found myself in a ship named “Piccadilly Daisy” sailing in the heart of the Atlantic. But that day there was a covering of fog and mist that settled in the atmosphere. Nothing could be seen correctly as the visibility was blurred. Even the navigator did not work that day for it did not receive any signal.
I tried my best to capture the nearby objects but the visibility did not permit me. Not being able to observe anything, I told my crew member John “Hey! I am going to the deck in order to have a clear view of the things. Can you manage here? “. He replied, “Yes, you go ahead”.
Even on reaching the deck, I could not make out anything. Where ever my eye sight went, it was only fog and mist. I then stooped down with half part of my body inclined outside the ship. To my astonishment I could experience some external force acting on me and I fell on the vast ocean.
Outside, the water was freezing due to excessive cold. My body temperature dropped to zero. I felt that my entire blood circulation has stopped.
Many a times I cried out “Help! Help! Help!”
But nobody was there to rescue. I could see the ship to sail by without even noticing my absence and it left me alone combating in such condition.
I faced several challenges to keep afloat in the ocean. The freezing cold water was the biggest challenge. Also I was simply oblivious of the direction because of the unclear visibility. It was extremely difficult to plan my next course of action.
Then suddenly I felt a loud thud and it was like something that hit my head. What I saw was unbelievable, I had fallen from my bed and my mother was shouting “You are getting late for school, wake up.” I thanked god that this was not real. Even if it was something of that sort, wouldn’t it be exciting?
India is a place that has a bounty of natural beauty as its possession since time immemorial. It has been a hot bed of tourism. It has been visited many a times by the global tourist all over the world. India is special destination and has occupied a central position in the minds of every visitor who back visit India.
But times have changed, political agitations, turmoil and natural calamities catastrophic have been common in every corner of India. It is not a dream land for tourist as it was before. Starting from Kashmir, it had witnessed horrifying flood last year. It is one of the favoured hunting grounds of the tourists because of the disputes that lie near this territory between the nations India and Pakistan. As the Paradise in Earth , as it is fondly called is no longer such and many even fear to go there.
Also another place that has witnessed the natural catastrophies in the recent past is the Uttarakhand. The Kedarnath flood still haunts the pilgrims of the Char Dham Yatra. This particular disaster took the lines of the several pilgrims and many of them were missing. No body knows what had happened to them. Another place is the Arunachal Pradesh, that is the victim of the Boru Movement As it borders India and China the region is also prone to several disputes between the nations.
Forests, lakes, rivers and mountains run across the India mainland. They are our natural beauties that is inheritant and we need to protect them. The central part of India – Madhyapradesh, Jharkhand with its rich forest and other biosphere reserves are a place infested by the terrorists. Andhra Pradesh because of the Telengana movement is also a dreaded pl ace to visit .
That is how the present day condition in India is no longer a dream land of visitors. The Government in order to fulfill its plan of “Incredible India” needs to crush this disturba nces. If only this is then India can be made a better place but us walk hand in hand in order to make India a better place to live.
