A Journey by launch falling into a storm
My name is Mijan. Once I was going to Barisal from Dhaka by launch. The weather was calm and quiet and the sky was clear. The launch was moving smoothly. All the passengers were in a jolly mind. We were enjoying the scenery. Small waves that were dashing against our launch thrilled us much. But suddenly the weather turned into an adverse situation. We found black clouds in the north-west side of the sky. We all were afraid. Within a short time a storm a rose. The passengers were terribly upset. Heavy waves frequently dashed against our launch. It seemed to me that the strong wind and heavy waves might cause rift in the launch. We began to remember Allah again and again. We thought that there would be watery graves of us. But thanks to the almighty Allah that we all were saved for that day.
