THE SPIRIT OF ADVENTURES
Introduction: Adventure means the act of going out in search of a thrilling experience and the unknown. To do a thing without any profit or publicity is foreign to our nature and temperament. If we go out on a journey. we do so with some objects, on business what will bring/earn a profit.
But to seek the unknown for the thrill of it has now entered the mind and soul of our young men.We have learned about the adventure from the Knights’ adventurous events or expeditions. The Knights of the Middle Age used to set out for adventures.
Main traits for adventure: Adventure of any kind lies in facing all the troubles and taking the risk of life after the unknown, but merely for the joy of it. The adventure needs the strength of mind, the spirit of heroism, witty, bravery, perseverance and unswerving determination. No great work can be performed without anyone of it.
The difficulty for the unknown that lies ahead is too great. We will overcome it in the long run. The adventurer is to overcome the difficulty whatever may it be. The spirit of adventures does not care any danger or difficulty for a straw.
Reasons: The spirit of adventure finds expression in a variety of ways and means. People go out mountaineering or on voyages of exploration in quest of new frontiers. So great is their love and interest for adventure. That they are not afraid to sacrifice lives in the pursuit of taking the challenges.
The snow-capped the Himalayas or the ice-bound Antarctic or the wilds of Africa or the Deserts of Central Asia hold no terror for them, rather beckon them. And now men are being sent into the outer space, into the Moon where life does not exist. Columbus, voyaging across the strange and unknown seas, Marco Polo to find the silk route or the aeronauts into the outer space still bear testimony to man’s eternal spirit of adventures.
Its effects: Adventure has a great effect on a man’s life. It makes a man brave, hardy and of indomitable spirit and dauntless temper. It makes him the master of his destiny. It teaches him to be bold, enterprising and daring, not yet desperate. There is something of the gambler’s instinct in one who seeks the unknown; he must take chances but never foolishly rash.
He must know how to balance his means against his ends. He must be vigilant and resourceful. Adventure stimulates man seriously. The incumbent cannot help going out. In case of any adventurer, adventure makes the way a bit dangerous but with a concrete idea.
A stimulation: The spirit of adventure is open to cultivation and has to be fostered. It is good to forget about life and death when one faces risk with courage and determination. It acts as a tonic and stimulant. It also adds zest to life. Now a young man can go out without any companion but entirely on his own initiatives and see the world for himself. The adventure begins with running away from home.
It is a dare-devil spirit that steels the nerves. It reacts on the character and the outlook of the adventurer as well as the nation. Adventure is an internal instinct that gives one stimulation to go out in quest of the unknown. Allah has created many thrilling, unknown and surprising things in the universe. All but a few can know and see them. They can conquer them.
Example: Colombus, Hillary, Tenzing, Atish Deepankar, Rammohan Roy, Armstrong, Callins, and Aldrin were the most famous adventurers who got down in the history of mankind. Their records of adventures can never be ignored and forgotten.
Conclusion: All the adventurers possessed some extraordinary qualities which we still lack. Colombus, a normal sailor, discovered America by dint of his strong will, bravery, and a strong determination. Both Hillery and Tenzing climbed the Everest peak “by dint of perseverance, hardihood, strong will, ready wit, and brevity.
