Describe a life changing experience.
You should say:
where it took place & who was with you
how it made you feel
and explain how it changed your life.
I was only 6 or 7 years old then and went to visit my grandpa in our village. I had lots of cousins and many of them were similar to my age. Visiting the village was very exciting to me. One day I along with my cousins went to play in the evening and all of a sudden we decided to catch some fished from the nearby pond. We had no hook or net to catch fishes so we decided to do it with our bare hands.
There were no people around so no one was there to warn us. As we did not know how to swim and had no idea about the depthless of the river, we lost control and all of a sudden I found that I and my cousin were trying to get out of the water. We already got ourselves trapped in the deep water and were struggling to breathe. I barely remember what happened except that I was trying with my last effort to fight with water and get into the land. I can’t recall how much time had spent but suddenly I found that I was lying on my mother’s lap and was trying to find my cousin who faced the same fate as I did.
Later I heard that both of us were almost sinking in the water and an old woman came to rescue us. She was a village dweller who came to take water from the pond and had noticed us. She single-handedly rescued me and then my cousin.
This event was a life changing event for me. After that event, I learned how important it is to stay closer to parents and to heed to their advice. I also learned how fleeting our lives are and we out to help each other. From then I also started respecting all sort of people from all ages and always believed in human. When we are in danger, human (known and unknown) would come to rescue us. So we should never disrespect the human and always keep faith on them.
The tragic part is that the grandson of the old woman who saved us died in the water of a river. Knowing it I started strongly believing in fates and then the tests we are bound to face in our lives.
