It's been Day 3 since Flight MH370 has been missing. I can't imagine how it's like for the friends and family for those passengers and crews on board. My heart is so saddened by this tragedy as it echoes to my own feelings.
Personally, I do not know anyone on Flight MH370. Why I feel it so close to my heart, not because the airline is Malaysian, but because in December last year, my husband just took a MAS flight to Guangzhou, first time ever. We usually take AirAsia. And our last holiday together was in Beijing.
Since marrying a foreign man, travelling to China has been quite frequent now. For both of us. And most of the time, we fly separately and always alone.
My husband has a very bad habit, which I have told him off several times. I have reminded him to call me as soon as the plane touchdown in China. But he would only call me as soon as he reaches his home, which is another 2 hours.
Most of the flights that he took arrives past midnight or wee hours in the morning. Can you imagine my feelings after sending him to the airport at 6pm, go back home and wait until he board at around 8pm, and the flight arrives at midnight and he only call me at 2am? Not only I was worried sick, but also can't sleep well, with multiple scenarios playing in my head.
Honestly speaking, each time I take a flight, I would be as nervous as can be, although I tried to keep my cool. As soon as I sat on my seat, I would raise kundalini and bandhan and then take Shri Ganesha mantra to removes all obstacles, Shri Hanuman mantra for a safe flight, Shri Supatha mantra to protect my journey and Shri Kshemakari mantra to protect my way. Each time I take Shri Hanuman mantra, I would imagine Shri Hanumana carrying the plane from underneath. This gave me comfort.
This incident happened so randomly. Yes, many theories arise, such as terrorism, conspiracy theory, mid-air explosion, mechanical problems, etc.
Don't you feel the world is getting scarier? Even with great technologies, we can't seem to stop something like this from happening.
Let's say a prayer for the crews and passengers on board. Wherever they are, let's hope they are safe and sound. Let's pray for their family members as well, who are waiting anxiously for updates. And finally, let's pray for the colleagues of the crews in MH370. I can't imagine how it's like to continue your daily job, without knowing the fate of your colleagues and keeping poise and smiling to the passengers and giving them your best service, and some of you might be travelling the same route as MH370.
May God bless all of you!
