One of best life experience. In the 2011, I am working in a company whom sells forklift trucks and earth moving machinery in Lahore (2nd Largest City of Pakistan). I’m sales representative at there. One day my boss ordered me. To delivered a forklift truck to a factory in a City Faisalabad (3rd Largest City of Pakistan). Distance from Lahore to nearly 120 miles. Now I reached end corner of the city to start my journey. When I reached there my another colleague meet me there with brand new forklift truck. After 15 minutes crane operator reached. He tied the forklift truck with crane ropes and put it in to the cargo truck. Now my colleague leaves me and I meet the cargo truck driver to start our journey. As usual driver sit on his seat and I sit with the driver. The cargo truck is really small and l think the model of truck is 1970. Very old and rare. Cargo truck driver called someone and a small boy 12 year sit with me.
Now we are 3. All we sit very tightly. I ask the little boy who are you. He says the cargo truck driver is my father and I come to Lahore City to visit. He start the truck. Half truck goes left and half goes to right. The little boy ask to his father. The forklift truck is really small. But it seems to very high weight. What is the weight of this forklift truck. His father says I don’t know the weight. Ask this gentleman means me. I told the little boy this forklift truck weight is 9390 pounds. Now in urban areas he drives at the speed of 25 miles per hour. When we reached the high way towards to Fasialabad. The driver stop the truck on a hotel. The both son and father take their breakfast. I just take the tea. Because when I leave my home I take my breakfast. Now the journey begins. Driver did not speed up the truck. The speed of truck remain same on 25 miles per hour. I ask the driver why not you speeded up the truck. The driver replied me gentleman if the speed up the truck than my truck collapse on road and open like a flower and speeding up can broke your forklift truck. Time passes we reached our destination.
The factory gate keeper signals us to stop there truck 200 meters way from the factory gate in open area. Because of security checking purpose. I saw the little boy he open the truck door and jumped. I understand it the distance of ground level and our sitting position is 4 to 5 feet. So if I walked from the truck gate like when we are sitting into the car than I fall badly on ground.
So I planned to take a jump from the truck gate.
I just jumped from the truck gate and I saw myself into the air.
No Ground and not into the truck.
At that moment I’m thinking I just jumped from the truck gate where the ground is? People are laughing on me. What happened to me? Actually when I jumped from the truck my belt is toed into the truck door hook. That’s the reason I’m flying into the air. After spending 1 minutes into the air. Then I hear the truck door sound Krkrkrkrkrkrkrkr…………. Krkrkrkrkrkrkkrkr.
The sound when you put heavy load on wood. The breaking of wood sound. Both me and truck door is down on the earth. Everybody is clipping and laughing on me. Then I complete the security inspection of my truck and they allow me to come into the factory. We reached a transportation department. Where 20 people climb on the truck for the inspection of the forklift truck. Than crane reached and the crane put the forklift truck on the ground. They transportation department of the factory give me the sign and stamp delivery note copy.
Where someone told me if you leave the truck driver than you cannot pick any public transport. Because this factory is far away from the main city. So I sit again into the broken door truck. And the truck driver dropped me near a station. The time is 16:30. Truck driver leaves me there and public transport representative says to me there is no conveyance for Lahore till next morning. A person standing near to me and says if you want to go to Lahore early than you must be to play Olympics. I say why I have to play Olympics. He says you see the train I say yes. He says you have 60 seconds to catch the train. The distance me and the train is 1000 meter. I ran way. Very fast very fast. I boy trying to practice on the motorbike. Says to me brother what happened. I say I have to catch the train. He says it behind me and at last I caught the train.
It’s my story. What I learned from it anything happened into your life any time and you never expect it before that this thing is happened to me.
