A Horrible Bus Journey

An excursion to Hajarduari in Murshidabad was organized by our school last Sunday. It was a one-day tour. We started our journey from our school ground at about 5 in the morning by bus.  We all students and teachers walked around there all the day. When the sun sets at about 6.30 in the afternoon, we decided to come back. When evening came down, we started our back journey to come to our place.  Suddenly, the driver of our bus realized that one of the tyres of our bus was punctured. I occurred at the mid of darkness in our way. We got down and kept on shivering in fear. We had to wait for two hours at a lonely place. The puncture took two hours to be fixed and we restart our journey to home. Anyway, we reached homes safe at day-break. It was a horrible experience for us.
