We remained in the air for hardly half an hour. It was 7 p.m. Searchlights showed that we were near the
Mumbai’s airport. All of a sudden the deafening sound ceased. The plane began to descend. Soon it touched the ground and came to a standstill. I opened the belt that I had fastened before we took off and came out.
The whole experience now seems a wonder. In thirty minutes, I was hundreds of miles away from home. It was really thrilling. Its memory is still fresh in my mind and very much wish to fly over a longer distance.
