A Memorable Day In My Life
I did not wake up and find myself famous on the morning of the 14th of last month. No one wished me even when I left my bed. In those boarding homes, which accommodation two hundred students, not one thought much of me as I passed the corridor. Yet it was going to be the most memorable day in my life.
It all came in this way. I was at that time an indifferent cricketer not the well know spin bowler, nor the talented batsman that I am thought to be now. Yet as I was passing along the corridor in front of Charles’s room-Charles was the college skipper. I was curtly informed that I was to be the eleventh man in the college team that day. My heart simply leapt. For, I was ambitious and of late was showing better form than I had ever done.
We were playing that day against the strongest cricket team in the town, Sutton club. There was not the ghost of a chance of our putting up a good show. They batted first and made 250 runs for the less of 6 wickets. It was hurricane batting from the beginning to the end and fours and sixes came huge numbers. Then we began our innings. Our stalwarts returned to the pavilion in a short time. They could not withstand the steady bowling of Davind and Brown and defeat for us was only a matter of time.
When we were nine wickets down, we had made only 63 runs. Then I went into bat amidst jeers and cheers of many of my college teachers. Ordinarily, I would have been very nervous, but so many strange things had happened that day I was feeling quite confident. Anything might happen! And something did happen.
James, who was the man, was a steady bat and played sensibly. He soon realized that I was set for a big score and helped me by letting me face the ball frequently. I hit ten sixes and 23 fours. Runs were coming at a fast pace. At tea time I had scored 145 run. Shortly before the end of the day’s play we reached the total 251 and the match was over.
I was simply delirious; I had turned certain defeat into victory. I was loudly cheered, garlanded and taken to the Boarding House in a Procession. I was very proud and a little giddy.
But the crowning glory of the day was the wire which reached me at 8 p.m. I had won a lottery of one lack rupee. I did not swoon or babble. Oh! I was so happy. I had never been as happy as on that day. New, the shades of the prison house, in the words of the famous poet words worth, are fast falling upon me. Things are taking a more gloomy turn. But, now I can always look back upon that day of my life and console myself that I too had my hour.

It was Sunday. Early morning I, my classmates, our parents and teachers met in school. Why is so much early? Because we decided to set off and chose unique and immemorial city Samarkand. It was as school trip. I had never been abroad Tashkent, it was the first and unforgettable experience. It seemed a very special thing for me. It was fascinating. Because I was with my friends and my mother. It's littered friendly and kind atmosphere. We went to there by bus. It meant we have much time to take photos and videos. I like doing it very much and we did it almost during whole day, everywhere. We had only a day to trip around Samarkand and because of it we didn't see every place there. I was in Registan Square, Gor-e Amir, Mirzo Ulugbek's observatory and certainly market. There were very amazing and beautiful place. I was very surprised at it. I don't see place as them every day. Many tourists walked around these places and took their photo. One tourist took my and my friend's photo. My friend and I see Registan and took its photo, he did it too. Then he took our photo. It was very funny situation. Then he looked at us and started to smile and we began to smile as answer. It happened in Registan. Before returning home we were in bazaar. We all bought bread to home. I think, it is tradition to bring home something after trip. Then we returned to our bus and went home. It was about 5 o'clock. Everyone got tired and wanted to sleep. We all told that we do not want to go to school tomorrow. That is why our head teacher let us to miss school tomorrow and told secret that she wanted to relax tomorrow. My mother and I were at home at 8 o'clock. First thing that I did it was changing my clothes and going to bed.
It was one of the funniest and the most amazing day of my life. Because in this day my friends and my mother were with me. My relationships with my classmates become better and more amicable. I got tired so much after this trip. However I have something to remember. Nowadays when I meet my classmates, we remember this day with smile. Now I have a dream to go somewhere abroad with my whole family and I want to go through many things, which I have never experienced.
