Essay No. 01

In September last, my father went to Delhi from Allahabad by a plane. He had to attend the meetings of the parliament. I requested him to take me with him. He agreed. I was very much pleased.

My father is an M.P. He went in a car from Allahabad to the aerodrome in the morning. Our seats had already been reserved. I was much pleased to see the aerodrome. I saw a number of aeroplanes there. One aeroplane just came to the ground. People got down from it. Some were being cleaned and repaired. Our plane was ready for the flight.

Our luggage was put in the plane. We entered it. I wondered to see the plane. I had seen a plane from a distance. I never thought that it was so big. The plane was standing on wheels. It had two large wings. There were cushioned seats inside. There were windows and also holes at the floor to see through. We took our seats.

Just at 8 o’clock, the pilot started the engine. The plane began to move on the ground. It left the ground. It rose higher and higher. I was filled with joy as well as fear.

I looked down through the holes. I saw towns, villages, trees, and fields passing below. The houses and trees looked very small. The men and animals looked like small dots. I was given a small spyglass to see through it. Now I could see everything clearly. The wind was roaring and our plane was flying at the rate of 400 kilometers an hour. It was pleasant to fly over towns. And cities like the birds. Though it was hot on the land, but it was cool in the plane.

 I asked my father some questions about the plane. My father gave short answers. But one of the passengers knew all about machines. He saw my curiosity. He explained everything in detail. I was pleased to know so many new things about eh plane.

I saw the big city of Kanpur. I caught sight of the clouds of smoke rising from chimneys. But we could see only the tops. We then passed over the towers of the Taj Mahal and the fort of Agra. Our plane did not stop at any place like the train. Very soon large buildings came into my sight. I asked my father what that city was I was surprised to know that it was Delhi. I had never expected to reach Delhi so soon. In a few minutes, our plane began to take round and round. Very soon it came down on the ground. We reached Delhi in two hours. 

I got down. I saw Indira Gandhi airport. It was very big. I was very happy at the end of my flight.

A Journey by Air

As a reward for our hard work and good result in the annual examination, my father decided to take us on a vacation by air. It was to be the first time that I would be traveling by air. I was very excited about it.

Our flight was at 12 noon. We drove to the airport in a taxi. There were many people outside the airport. They had come to receive or see off their relatives. People were loading their luggage on the trolleys. We also did the same and pushed the trolley inside the departure lounge. Here our tickets were checked at the counter. We were issued the boarding passes. Our flight was announced. We then proceeded for the security and the baggage check. We were taken to the waiting aircraft in a bus. Thereafter showing our boarding card to the office at the stairs, we climbed the stairs and went into the aircraft

We were cordially received at the door of the aircraft by an air hostess. She directed us to our seats. We had got two aisle seats and two seats by the windows. We put our hand luggage in the overhead compartments. We sat down on our seats. Soon the aircraft was full. No smoking signs were switched on. The air-hostess requested us to tie our seat-belts and those who were smoking to extinguish their cigarettes.

The aircraft began taxiing on the runway. It rapidly gathered speed and within a few minutes, we were airborne. The no-smoking signs were put off. We untied our seat belts. I was soon engrossed in the clouds outside. I could also make out towns and rivers from the air. The air hostess started serving refreshments. She offered me a glass of juice. While I was sipping the juice, she came with the lunch. She opened the folded table from the seat in front of me and placed my lunch packet on it. It contained rice, chapatis, a vegetable, fresh salad, and a lentil. There was a cup of yogurt and a cup of gulab-jamuns as a sweet dish.

We all ate our lunch. The air-hostess swiftly cleared the leftovers and the soiled lunch packets. We were offered tea or coffee after it. I declined to take any and was soon lost in the world of clouds outside my window.

The other passengers who were frequent fliers were soon engrossed in their office work or in the newspapers and magazines supplied by the airline. There was all quiet inside the aircraft. I fell asleep.

I was awakened by my mother; she said that the aircraft was about to land. We tied our seat-belts. The aircraft started losing height. Within few minutes we were once again taxiing on the airstrip

In this way, my maiden flight came to an end without any mishap.
