Evil became a God!!

Canal near was whizzing, isolated vicinity became blurred and the evening had been getting matured.
It’s an incident of almost a decade ago. We (I was accompanied by my friend) crossed the India-Nepal boarder and completed all the formalities in Indian check post. We then stepped ahead getting our destination. As we walked few steps we heard a Hindi voice “ladki ruko” ( girls stop).We got fear and run. After a minute two boys warned us not to move a bit. They caught our arm. My friend was screaming. I tried to make them clear that we were college student of Nainital (India) and we got late due to bus. I showed them my student Identity card but they did not let us to go .I also was crying , pleading with them for our life but they did not became a bit of kind. How the situation was going, could not stop to convince. I requested them with lots of tear, I touched their feet. At the same time another group of men moved around us talking so dirty words. Second group moved ahead and those two boys did not make us free. Hundreds of my pleadings, cries could not touch their heart. I was losing my hope and started to suppose that death is very near to me. I thought that I am going to die, my friends, parents will meet me as dead body floating over the canal. I remembered parents, friends and felt sorry to all whom if I caused any pain. I remembered god without any hope. I saw blank around me, my eyes were not stopping to rain. Suddenly, boys changed their voice and told us not to leave them and be silent if any other group asks anything. “We are convinced that you girls are not like others we help you to cross the distance”. God! My heart became down to bit and shocked by their suddenly changed voice. Though I had not full trust on them we had not any option except doing trust blindly. As they told us we run with them but some meter ahead we met another group I got more frightened and lost my hopes again but they discussed with them and succeed to make us to get our destination. As a miracle two evil became like a god to save our precious life.

Dear,, thank u for your sweet comment. I loved it .
Oh God !! that was the real feeling of like death.I totally had lost all the hopes to be safe.The boys were night hunter( they catch the innocent girls/ women and fulfill their desire and killed them ). I told that events to one of my friend he also was from the same area and he wondered how they leave you both!!!! they ared the most notorious gang of this area.
All that was not other than a miracle!!

Your language reminds me of a river, with a flow to it, and that is probably how you felt, pulled into a great unstoppable current, at the mercy of something greater than yourself. I love this type of miracle. You never really how how you got into the situation or how you would get out of it, but for the rest of your life, you will look back, and renew your vows of appreciation!

Thanks for telling,
