Narmada River Incident

Family Drama: A Tale of Misunderstanding

Labhuben, who had come to visit her family, was informed that they were attending a Bhagwat Katha, an event she wasn’t interested in attending. Although everyone had agreed previously, Labhuben wasn’t keen, so they decided to postpone the visit. 

Later, Bharatbhai and Maganbhai insisted on going today to catch up, which led to us heading to the Narmada River for a leisurely time. We were having a great time until an hour passed, and we decided to leave. 

Maganbhai remarked, “The water here is better.” Just as we arrived, suddenly, the boys got caught in the water. We immediately rushed to pull them out, but Maganbhai’s hand slipped from our grasp, and he was swept away by the current.
