Near to Death Experience!

Thanks to God they survived

This is a real life event that happened two years back. I still tremble remembering that day but it sure has taught me so many things that I couldn’t have learnt otherwise. This is my near to death experience; that clearly changed my way of living.


Back in 2018, when students of our college were in a week long tour to pokhara, ghandruk and many other places, we came across an accident that shook us from within.

Our college always conducted different tours for three different batches. We were on our 4th semester when this tour was being conducted.
