This incident took place when I was six years old. It was one calm and beautiful evening. The sun had completed its tour for the day and painted the sky red. My mother, my brother and I headed to a beach, which was a ten minute walk from my place, after completing my homework to enjoy the sunset after such a busy day. It was the perfect place to relax, the sound of nature was so soothing. It was cool and windy, the trees were swaying and its leaves rustling. Wind blew through my curly hair making it look like maggi noodles. I was wearing one of my favorite dresses, it was a green color frock, rounded neck with some buttons on the front. The sun shone upon the sand making it glitter and the shells looked like crystals.

While closing my buttons, I turned towards my left and saw a white color Land Cruiser approaching me at a very high speed. My heart began pounding really fast and I broke down in tears seeing my death right in front of my eyes.

My mom turned back and screamed, "MANU! RUN AND COME HERE QUICKLY."

But I didn't answer and continued crying.

As luck would have it, there was a man nearby and my mother's scream caught his attention. He was in his early forties, and wore a simple shirt with a light brown trouser. He spotted me crying in the middle of the road. Quickly, he came to the edge of the road, grabbed my arm and pulled me with a sudden jerk. I fell down on the pavement,
