A journey By Boat
Any kind of journey is pleasant to all. But a journey by boat or launch is specially very pleasant and enjoyable to me. I like it most. During the last autumn vacation one of my friends requested me to attend his sisters marriage ceremony at Daudkandi. So got a chance to make a Journey by boat.
Description of the journey:
We were five in number. On the fixed date we reached Homna launch ghat at 8 a.m. We hired a fine boat. We started our journey from Homna ghat at 10 a.m. There were two boatmen. The sky was clear. The river was calm and full to the brim. At first the boatmen plied the boat with oars. When the wind was favorable they set sail. Soon the boat began to move fast. There were small waves in the river. The boat began to dance with the waves. The boatmen were singing. It was a Bhatiali song. It filled our heart with joy.
Scenery I enjoyed:
We enjoyed the scenery of the river. We saw many boats big or small plying up and down. We saw some steamers and motor launches plying through the river. Fishermen were catching fish in the river. Boys and girls were swimming. Women were going home with jars filled with water. There were green fields on both sides of the river. Cattle were grazing there.
At about 4.p.m we reached the ghat of my friends house. My friend was very glad to see us. He received us cordially.
I was on a short journey. But it was the most pleasant journey in my life. I enjoyed it so much that the memory of this boat journey will remain ever fresh in my heart.
