In December 2017, we decided to celebrate the new year bash at the most amazing party destination in #India, Goa.

The rates were unusually high and let's say we were not that well off, so we kept it a short 2 day trip.

Next day, after the new year party when we were riding across the different parts of North #Goa, we reached #Calangute beach. The beach was packed and over crowded.

On the beach there were lot of adventure sports happening and we picked parasailing which cost ₹700 for 2 dips.

We had no idea of what will happen so I got to go first. I was given a life jacket and a parachute.

The speed boat was in the middle of the sea and the motorman started accelerating which allowed the parachute to open and as a result I starting rising.

While reaching the maximum height I was just looking down at the boat and screaming to my friend and then something happened that put my senses to calm and left me speechless .

I saw a bird flying pass me.

It made me realise the height I was at and when I looked in front of me, there was only water and nothing else.

For a few seconds, everything stopped, I could hear no sound and was almost transpired to some other world.

And then came the time for dip, so I was pulled into the sea which basically was thrashing.

I took 2 dips and then I was pulled back to our boat .

Even after some years, I am not able to forget that moment of nothingness I witnessed. Which is still providing an escapade from an angry version of myself.

Sometimes you don't know what you learnt but somehow it comes handy in one way or the other.
