When the wind was favourable, they set sail (). Soon the boat began to move fast (6). There were small waves in the river. The boat began to dance with the waves. The boatmen were singing. It was a 'Bhatiali' song. It filled us with joy.

Scenery I enjoyed: We enjoyed the scenery of the river. We saw many boats big and small plying up and down. We saw some steamers and motor launches plying through the river. Fishermen were catching fishes in the river. Boys and girls were swimming. Women were going home with jars filled with water. There were green fields on both sides of the river. Cattle were grazing there. At about 4.p.m. we reached the ghat of my friend's house. My friend was very glad to see us. He received us cordially. Conclusion: I was on a.short journey.
