I REMEMBER an adventure I had at a friend’s wedding. My friend’s wedding was outside my village. That village is named Deglur. His marriage was in 2015. I and my fellow villagers went to that wedding. There was no wedding hall. The wedding was at a farm. Everybody went there and sat down for the wedding. One hour later, there suddenly came horrible winds and heavy rains fell. Everybody got up and ran because all were very scared. That rain was like a huge, angry storm. Lots of trees fell down on the land. It was a very bad situation. Suddenly one man ran in the rain and a pillar fell on his feet and he cried out very hard. All the people looked, but no one went to help him because there was so much rain and wind.  My friends and I ran and helped him and took him for hospital treatment. — Nemaji
