The Lost World - The Fatal Four

                     My two hands are up, waving for help.Then i go down.The noice around is fully shut.I hear only bubble sound.I used to wonder if we could see without difficulty inside water.

Lesson 1:We can see clearly inside water

I pulled all possible resources available around me to jump up again.The resources happened to be my friends' legs and body.

Lesson 2:You cannot help others while under deep threat

I come again to the top, the noise showing off once more and with my hands waving.I go down struggling for breath learning leason 2 once more.The above process i repeated the third time, this time my mother showing off in my mind picture with her caring words.

Lesson 3: My mother loves me more than anyone else

       Like an aircraft slowly taking off, i suddenly felt moving up inside the water.Sherif without minding his physical challenge had jumped inside the water and pushed me from the bottom.Then like an aircraft flying smoothly on air i felt flying inside.My junior Ram, thinner than me ,was pulling me along.Finally a hand snatches my back and puts me on a rock.It belonged to Subash.I am safely landed.One more dip,i would have put my mother to inconsolable pain.

    I was not alone.There were three others struggling with me.Vinoth,Krishna and Vysakh(whose swimming skills didnot help in the pulls).We were sitting on the rocks gasping for air.I could see Vysakh's face turn red,his eyes so tired(After all i had pulled him too!).


Some time before.......

         We are heading on to Thirumurthi hills, our last trip in college life.My friends,classmates and juniors are having fun inside bus with their dreamy girls.I keep shy and restrict myself as usual.Bus lands nearby hills and we walk towards thirumurthi hills.Water is flowing lavishly from the falls and people are swimming inside the pool collected in front of it.It looked so shallow with water only upto chest height.With this assumption i jump inside with excitement.Water starts pulling few of us(the fatal four) towards a more deep area.We start pulling each other's legs.Vysakh,CB and krishna have pulled my legs very often at class but let me promise this was not in retaliation.We pulled each others without any partiality.Vyakh with his swimming skills reached the rocks almost all the time he wanted to do but was pulled back (Not me this one!)

Some time after.....

              We participate in photosessions celebrating our moments.Some one names us 'The Fatal Four' after 'The Fantastic Four'.It is time to leave.We get inside bus and start to college.For the first time in my college life i move my legs and hands inside bus for the background music(I mean i too danced ).

My encounter with death had removed my consciousness...

My god. A similar thing happened to a guy I know here. But he did not make it.

Everybody doesnt get a near death experience. You know the value of life more than anybody else :)
