Hello To All
i dont know whether i shud write or not but this is the story of my life when I was at my selfish most
in dec 2010 i was travelling from delhi to chennai to attend a promotion interview. i was accompained with my daughter (then 2 n half yrs) and my hubby. i was seated at window seat, my husband at aisle and my daughter as usual in the mid. after the plane took off my hubby ordered meals with 2 cups of hot tea. i askd airhostess to serve the tea once we finish the meals but she showed her helplessness. so every thing was served at our seats. my daughter DODO was so excited to see all these servings that she waived her left hand and hit the cup of tea placed before me. and all hell broke down at me in the mid air.that hot tea spilled over my thigs. the burn impact was so intense that I cud not even screamed. for a second i cud not understand what has happened. i felt like i was burning alive.i immediately poured the mineral water over my legs. i was going thru excruciating pain. my hubby kept asking me if everything was ok. i cud only say-i need a doctor. i wanted to scream in pain but i knew that may create panic in co-passengers.
i was wearing tights and had no spare dress in handbag. i desperately needed something to soothe my burns. i somehow managed to walk to washroom. my skinn was about to come out. i narrated the incident to an attendant but she told there were no medicines in flight. i felt like slapping her but my pain didint allow me. i rather begged her that i cud not bear pain any more. she then gave me 4 ice cubes. i came back to my seat covered my legs with my stole and put ice on my burns. it was very relaxing but soon ice was over. there was still 2 hr journey left. i was not able to console myself. i closed my eyes and prayed to God in most selfish way. I prayed the plane to crash in cold water so that it cud give me cooling effect. though i was at my selfish most in my thoughts, i prayed for the safety of all travelling on board.
but God was kind enough for not answering my prayers. finally the journey was over and subsequently my pain subsidised.by the time i reached hotel my skin came out. my legs were completely burnt but it was under control.the worst part was over.
all these things happened to me but God gave me strength to keep myself calm. none of the co passengers ever realised what happend to me during the journey. when my mom saw my legs after a week, she was terrified. she said it was impossible to not to react during such pain.
THAT DAY I PRAYED TO GOD EARNESTLY TO LET PLANE CRASH IN WATER, BUT MY PRAYERS WERE NOT ANSWERED. AND IM THANKFUL TO GOD WITH ALL MY HEARTS FOR NOT ANSWERING MY PRAYERS.
My most memorable journey-not a pleasant one- through pain via plane
