Essay on the happiest day of my life
It was the happiest day in my life when I could be of some service to humanity. I with my friends decided to bathe in a river near our town. At 11 a.m. we reached there and after some time we started bathing in the river.
We were bathing in the river in high spirits. There were hundreds of other people bathing. Suddenly we heard a loud shriek. A lady was crying, “Help-Help! my son is drowning. Save him!”
Many people rushed towards the drowning boy and I was one among those many. Being an expert swimmer, I was ahead of them all in reaching the boy. The boy was underwater being carried away by the swift current of the flowing water. Risking my life, I dived into the water. I was able to catch the boy by his hair. I drew him to my side and caught hold of him by the waist. He was unconscious.
There were tears of joy in the eyes of the crying mother. People rushed towards me to help me in carrying the boy out of the water. He was laid down on the sandy, shore where he lay senseless. A lot of water had gone into him. At the suggestion of an aged person, we tried our best to make him spill water. But this did not help him to bring him back to senses. We decided to take him to the doctor. A gentleman took us to a nearby doctor in his car. The doctor treated him and he opened his eyes. His mother and other people praised me. It was the happiest day of my life.
