As if in a sudden fit of frenzy, Dinesh got up and started dancing. Perhaps subconsciously not desiring to be left behind, we all joined him in his frenzied movements arising out of sheer joy and freedom from anxiety and worldly concern that the moments offered us.
The boatman seemed to be a bit worried and advised us to keep our heavy thumping of feet under control as the boat might lose its balance. However, as it was not the season and the weather god was also favorable to us, nothing untoward happened.
Having enjoyed ourselves and after finishing all the fruits, chocolates and other eatables that we had brought with us, we asked the boatman to start the journey backward. I can never forget this happy journey in the company of my best friends in life.
