On one calm and cool night; when the stars were twinkling high in the sky; when the moon was bathing in the silver essence of night; the air was filled with joy, I ran to the huge mall which was on cyber road. I was very excited as I was going there to get myself a costume for the play which we were performing in school. I could barely stand still at that time. As soon as I stepped inside the mall, I felt an unexplainable joy within me. I was going through all the shops when the mall shook slightly, this caused uproar. I could hear voices from all around, panic was in the air. Suddenly, the building moved fiercely again and then I understood, 'it was an earthquake’. My adrenaline pulsed through me. I could feel tears rolling down my cheeks, dying was a hard fact for me to accept .Everything had turned dark in a matter of seconds, shouting and panic was everywhere. The top two floors of the building fell and that is when I lost my consciousness. A huge piece of rock had fallen on me. Every inch of my body was feeling a throbbing pain, my whole body was covered in blood, and slow-whimpers were escaping my mouth. Suddenly, a hand came from nowhere and started to push me, the pain in my body worsened. I tried to push the hand away but it wouldn't give up and therefore I gave in. The hand slowly pushed me out and it turned out to be a policeman's. He lay me down on something soft, a female came by my side then and injected something into my body. I slept. A few days later, I woke up in a hospital, the pain in my body had seemed to fade away but the memories were still there. The incident made me realize that I had done nothing in life and that I needed to become ‘somebody’ before I die. I needed to make a change in the world because this life is so short; no one knows when it will end. Therefore we must do something good in life so that people remember us till generations and be thankful to us.
