Because of our creator brhmah's shakti of maayaa, we have a confused notion about "I".....who is the "I" when one refers to "I" do this and that, "I" is transformed into "ME" and "MY or MINE" in our lives...and one feels that without "ME" nothing could have been possible...or one feels that with "MY or MINE" others could not have survived.....Here is a so called MIRACLE instance and see for yourself how even such a miracle cannot wake us up to the real "I"....and we probably cling more to the "I" after a miracle gives us a chance to know the real "I".

Vesna Vulovic, a flight attendant from Yugoslavia, survived a fall from 10,160 m (33,330 ft) when the DC-9 airplane she was traveling in blew up over Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic), on January 26, 1972. A terrorist bomb was thought to be the cause, and no other passengers survived. Vesna broke both legs and was temporarily paralyzed from the waist down.

Vesna remembers nothing, but later learned that a former nurse, Bruno Henke, saw Vesna's legs sticking out of the fuselage. Bruno cleared Vesna's airways before rushing her to hospital. Three days later she awoke from a coma in a hospital in Ceska, Karmenice.

She says, "I was so lucky to have survived! I hit the earth not the trees, not the snow, but the frozen ground." Strangely, the first words she uttered, "Can I have a cigarette," were in English!

Luckily, she suffered no psychological trauma, and no fear of flying. Prevented from returning to her job, she forged a new career in administration. "I was able to fly over the world for free," she says. 

Her experience has helped her form a philosophical attitude towards life: 
"I believe we are masters of our lives - we hold all the cards and it is up to us to use them right."
