Person B: I have, indeed. It’s past time to solve the problem. Wild animal populations are declining, and utilizing them in circuses exacerbates the situation.
Person A: That’s right! These magnificent creatures belong in their native environments, not in cramped cages. They perform stunts for amusement.
Person B: It’s not only about conservation; it’s also about the cruelty that these creatures face. The housing circumstances, regular travel, and training methods are all harsh.
Person A: Using wild animals in circuses is illegal in many nations. This has been acknowledged. It’s high time we must be alert.
Person B: I concur entirely. Strict legislation should be in place to prohibit using animals for entertainment purposes. It has to do with humanity and compassion.
Person A: Besides, there are other entertainment options available that don’t entail animal abuse. Our first priority must be to treat these animals with kindness and to honor their role in the environment.
Person B: Hopefully, more people will join the effort so that we can stop this horrible and outmoded practice.

Write a story within 100 words using the given hints. Give a title to the story:
Hints: returning from educational excursion by bus-night journey-sudden breakdown- tyres punctured-had to wait for two hours at a lonely place-tyres fixed-back home

Example 1- “Journey of Resilience”

A bus carrying a bunch of students set out on their educational vacation, traveling through the night. The bus suddenly broke down with flat tires in the middle of nowhere. They were left stranded in the dark and had to wait in silence for two exhausting hours before the tires got patched.

The experience transformed into an unforeseen journey, creating new connections amongst the weary yet resilient pupils. Once the tires became fixed, they resumed their journey and returned home with stories of their companionship from a night of difficulties and fun. They learned the virtue of patience and cooperation from the unplanned detour, which they now treasure.

 Example 2 – “Journey of Resilience”

A group of students returned from an educational tour, their minds full with newly acquired knowledge, as the bus trundled into the night. A mechanical groan suddenly sounded throughout the bus, causing it to tremble and come to a stop. They were left stranded at a desolate crossroads in the pitch black due to punctured tires.

With their spotlights creating strange shadows, the students disembarked, and anxious voices filled the air. They crowded close, their spirits unfazed by the unexpected setback, with nothing to do but wait. Two hours dragged on like an unending chasm, but in that time, bonds became strengthened and a common toughness surfaced.

Laughter resounded through the night beneath the starry sky, and the students took comfort in their makeshift camp. The long wait turned into a bonding event as everyone pitched together to fix the bus. The bus roared back to life as the tires were eventually patched, transporting the weary but victorious students home.

Their journey faced an unexpected breakdown that demonstrated the power that comes from adversity. Their tales of solidarity and friendship became folklore among the pupils, demonstrating the resiliency that emerges when confronted with adversity. As the bus continued its journey, it carried not only its passengers but also the recollections of a night that had transformed an ordinary return trip into an extraordinary excursion.
