ACHIEVING THE IMPOSSIBLE

from jyoti ranpura jyotiranpura@yahoo.com

I’m writing this because a plane carrying an Uruguayan rugby team went down in the Andes mountains 38 years ago.Twenty-one years later Frank Marshall made a movie called Alive based on the story. The film brings to life the experiences of 29 people who survived the crash and struggled to remain alive in the snow and freezing temperatures of the Andes for three interminably long months. An avalanche takes the lives of eight of them one morning. Five others die from their injuries and exposure during the ordeal. After learning by radio that efforts to find them had been called off, two of the survivors set out on an impossible odyssey to breach the Andes and send a rescue team back.
At one point during their quest one of them calls to his friend, “Come up here, man, you’ve got to see this, it’s beautiful.” The audience thinks he sees civilization. The camera pans to his view to show a nauseating infinity of snow-capped mountain peaks. No end in sight.
His friend says, “We’re going to die up here.” And the other replies, “Do you know what it is that we made it this far? It’s impossible, that’s what it is. If we’re going to die, we’re going to die walking.”
They breach the Andes. They find their way to the green valleys of Chile and make contact with the outside world. The closing scene of the film is of the survivors hearing helicopter engines and then seeing the choppers come into full view, with the two friends that saved them waving from inside.

  1. ચોંકી ગયા? ભડકી ગયા? એવી જ આ વાત છે. સાવ સત્યકથા. ઈદી અમીનના યુગાન્ડા કે આફ્રીકા કે ન્યુગીની/ પપુઆ જેવા પ્રદેશોમાં રહેતા જંગલી લોકોની આ વાત નથી. આ વાત તો આધુનીક દેશમાં રહેતા ચુસ્ત રોમન કેથોલીક લોકોની છે.
