It was actually a dream that I had. Dreams conquer everybody’s mind especially during nighttime. So it did mine too. But that looked as if it was real. I thought myself to be a captain of a ship that was off the coast of Andaman and Nicobar islands. Being a captain means you are the most powerful person present there at the moment.
I had always faced storms, small or big. As usual, I got informed by a men that a storm was occurring and it was no ordinary one. I went out to look into the situation and that was true! The sea had become violent that its waves were occasionally hitting the deck.
I soon ordered for the life boats. It seemed risky to stay on the deck. At last I was alone left on the deck with my first mate Jatin. We were alone in a life boat and were tired enough that could not row it properly. Our future and life were dependent on the waves that were they were taking us. We were so tired that we slept within seconds.
In the morning, when I got up, I could not find Jatin. I went in search for him, but ctould not find him anywhere. Then I heard some strange sounds. I went to see that from where the sounds were cominig from. I went through the bushes and saw there a few tribals. even Jatin was there tied with a rope to a tree.
I was shocked to see the state of my friend. My first thought was to jump out and save him. But then it struck me that how foolish that would be. It would only result in my immediate capture, and there was no way on earth I could overpower them by force. Those warriors looked fierce and I couldn’t control them with the small knife I had in my pocket.I needed to save Jatin. But how?
Suddenly I lost my balance and went rolling down the slope. There were a few of their children playing. They saw me and were about to shout for help when a lion jumped out of nowhere and captured a child. The rest of them ran to call for help. I was fortunate enough to carry that knife with me with which I fought the lion, ultimately saving the child.
All the tribals were there till then. The child whom I saved, ran towards them and said something in their language. I could see a sudden change of expression in their faces. I could see the gratitude and gesture in their faces. They toook me to their camp site and even untied Jatin.
We all had fun, dancing and singing. they served us a grand feast. I was really happy and thanked my stars for being lucky.
