Hearing every passenger pray to their respective Gods loudly for their lives in the flight was indeed a breathtaking experience. As we landed back safely, the cheering crowd, the tears of happiness, and every passenger calling their loved ones was a sigh of relief. This rebirth is a bigger reason to all of us to live life to the fullest.”
