17 May Night
After our long train journey
we reached Kottayam in
the night. Valiyamma’s
house was not far from the
station and we had to take
two auto-rickshaws to get
there. By then I was very
sleepy and did not even
wait to eat anything. I took
a bath and slept. I thought,
I had just fallen asleep when
Amma woke me up again.
We got ready, took our
luggage and went to the bus
stand. Valiyamma’s family
also came with us. We were
ten people, and had a lot of
luggage too!

The bus conductor came and Appa bought tickets for all
of us. We managed to get seats. As it went along, the bus got
very crowded. People were sharing the seats. We also had to
share our seats.
After a long ride, the bus reached the last stop, I was
happy to get off. My legs were stiff. I could hardly stand.
I thought that we had finally reached Ammumma’s village.
But no! Our travel had not ended yet. The bus had dropped
us by the water side. “Look”, Amma pointed across the
water. “That is where we have to go.” “But how will we get
there?” I wondered.
Just then I saw a boat coming. “There is the ferry,” Amma
said. Immediately a big crowd of people started getting off –
school children, men, women, all with their own packets
and luggage. Amma explained that the ferry was used by
people to cross the water and
reach the other side.
As soon as the ferry got
empty, the big rush
started from our side.
Everyone had to pay the
fare before getting on.
Very soon the ferry was
full. It started off again.
I managed to get a place to stand along
the railing. I saw the rippling of the still water as the ferry
moved. It was moving smoothly on the water. There were rows
of coconut trees on the banks of the river. As we moved
swiftly, I could see people, fishing, washing, bathing and
working along the banks.

Just before the sun disappeared into the water, the ferry
reached the island and stopped. It was time for us to get off. At
last, we reached Ammumma’s place. What a long and interesting
journey it has been!
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Omana travelled by different kinds of transport after she got
down from the train. Can you remember what these were?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö On which vehicles have you travelled?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Which ride did you enjoy the most? Why?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Omana left Ahmedabad on 16 May. How many hours did it
take for her to reach Ammumma’s place?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Have you ever been on a long journey? Where did you go?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Name the different kinds of transport that you used during
the journey.
For the teacher: In many parts of Kerala the ferry and other kind of
boats are commonly used to travel from one place to another. Discuss
why these are used. You can also ask children about boat rides that they
have taken.

A railway time-table gives details about the route of every
train – the stations along the route, what time the train will
reach and leave each station, the distance covered, etc. We can
buy a railway time-table from a railway station.
Some portions of the time-table for the route of the train on
which Omana travelled are given. Look carefully at it and answer
the following questions.
