When I was 17 years old, my parents took me to a relative’s house and I learned that this was a particular relative who saved my life when I was only 6. Since I was deeply touched by the event and the person, I still remember this event and my time there. It was in (…say a place in…), a nearby village of my grandparents’ house that I never knew about. One day my parents asked me to go visit a relative’s house when we were in my grandparent’s house. I went with them and on our journey we took a local bus and finally a boat to reach the place. To my surprise I was standing in front of an old house and my parents took me inside the house where I saw a very old woman. She was almost 70 years old and was lying in her bed. My mother introduced me to her and told me a story that I will never forget.
She told me that, one day I went to swim in a pond with one of my cousins when I was around 6 years old without informing anyone of my family. They were busy on other tasks and that’s why did not notice two of us silently escaped from home and went to that pond to swim though we did not know how to swim at that early age. There we were slipped from the sloppy corner of the pond and directly fall in the deep water. According to my mother’s story, no one was around except an old woman who noticed us struggling in the water and she risked her life to save two of us.
In fact my parents took me to meet that particular woman who was counting her days. That was such a touchy story that I could not retrain my tears at that age. I looked at the soft eyes of that old woman and felt like I was looking at my survivor. Later on I heard that, my father raised his helping hand to this particular woman for many years and showed his gratitude towards her.
My parents took me many places in my childhood and adolescence time but to me that was the most mysterious and touchy place I have been with them.
