One of the most memorable days in my life is writing my Mathematics paper in class X.
It was a bright sunny day.
Just as I was about to enter the hall, I had a sudden misgiving.
I checked my bag and got the jolt of my life.
I had forgotten my hall-ticket.
My heart missed a beat.
Panic stricken, I ran towards the gate.
I dashed into my father who having seen the hall ticket on the table brought it to the college.
I heaved a huge sigh of relief.
It took me a couple of minutes to get back to my normal self.,
I can never erase from my memory the mixed feelings of anxiety, shock, and relief whenever I look back to that day.
I was able to compose myself take the exam and I came out in flying colors.
I am now extra cautious and double check my bag whenever I step out.
