Negotiations with DEATH



Negotiations with DEATH


' I am not scared of death',that's something you may always hear from a person of dauntless bravery or someone who presumes to be so(that's me).The fear of death is almost certain to happen when someone has witnessed its approach.
It was another afternoon,i had my lunch and wanted to go on with my daily routine of playing some online games.Unfortunately there wasn't any power supply and we had the generator turned On which allowed power supply to only one of the plug points.That single socket that got the power supply was in my living room and the TV was connected to it.I badly wanted myself to be engaged with my games and i would do anything for it,that was the time when an idea struck into my mind.Without knowing that it was a prelude to some jeopardy,I went to the nearby electrical shop,got some meters of wire and i connected two-pin plugs at both the ends.I connected one end of the two pin plug to the socket,i wanted to straighten up the entangled roll of wire so that i could pull it towards my computer room.All of a sudden something from nowhere gave me a strong shudder,i was terrified and after a few seconds or so i came to realize that a plethora of electric current was exploring my body.I tried to hurl the plug out of my hand but my hand was reluctant to it and my fist clenched firmly to the plug.My whole arm was trembling vigorously and i was going through the worst moments of my life.I knew there was nothing much to do,somehow i knew that my palm was burning inside. I saw my mom walking across the other room but my voice was drowned to huge depths,and i stood there with all my hopes dwindling away.That was it..A thousands of thoughts were flying through my mind,I saw death stepping towards my door,the door which was locked by all the little hopes of survival.I felt myself getting weaker,not even trying to call for help or finding a way out,i was trying to convince myself that this was my destiny,this is why i lived for 24 years,its happening.I wanted to hide myself somewhere,i didn't want someone to see me dead,i wanted to hide my own corpse,i wanted that everyone who loved me could forget i ever existed,i didn't call for the ALMIGHTY,but i knew that something or someone from within me was craving for its existence,pushing its own door, pleading for the last time,'DEATH,Don't come my way,Spare me'!!..A guy of great fortitude, but now, when witnessed the approach of Death,was never different from a very old lying in his/her death bed.But,fortune didn't push me away,

In the twilight,one among those thousand thoughts got HIGHLIGHTED and i turned back to see; 
Yea !!..The switch !!...
The switch which was 4 steps away from me,I struggled to reach there with my hand being shaken by a load of electric current.. But...THANK GOD! I WAS ABLE TO WALK TOWARDS IT!. I still had a strong feeling that this won't end,even if the switch is off,the whole current will keep on circulating.With the least hopes i pushed the switch and luckily the storm was put to an end.The two pin plug dropped from my hand and i could see my burnt palm,with the aroma of barbecue.It looked like someone had deliberately poked my palm deeply with a burning cigarette on three different spots.
I keep pondering all the time,the thoughts of that  incident will never fade,i can still feel its depth,never knew a electric shock would be so bad!Hopefully my palm will be fine in few months.

Jaunty anima said...

Oh good heavens!!Thanks God u're safe...Reading itself sent a shiver down my spine...wonder wat u must have gone thru!!

Neena Sharma said...

I feel there's always a reason why things happen. And also that we all keep learning. The shock, horrific as it was, had a purpose. Anyway, take care...

BORAN said...

@ Neena : Yea..Served its purpose right ;)

I am reading this very long after u have posted this one.I rem when this incident had happened.Because the same day(not sure very much may be previous day or next day) i also had "negotiations with death" that too with the same killer.
I was working for IAG systems, project heavy vehicles factory.
During the panel inspection i don't know why i was so silly.i opened the inner panel of DC drive.I knew that the power inside that is 600 V DC. Much powerful than ur killer.Accidentally my finger touched that bus bar.Yes may be it was waiting for that moment.Exploded like a bomb.I was thrown four feet back.Luckily got escaped.i still remember,After that burst it took several minutes for me to get back to normal frequency.
What ever the theory i had studied became wrong in ur and my case. When u come in touch with AC u can get out of it,since AC freq has 0 point,but don't know why u couldn't remove ur hand off it.
In touch with DC , its a no chance of escape ,but i was thrown away.
May be mother nature has changed the rules to teach us some lesson.
In ur blog
"i wanted that everyone who loved me could forget i ever existed"
Really i loved this line.
LOVE U TOO.
