Doctor Lemuel Gulliver always loved adventure. When he was offered the position of ship’s doctor, he accepted it gladly. One fine morning in May, 1699, the young doctor boarded the sailing ship ‘Antelope’. For many weeks all went well. But one day a terrible storm arose. The “Antelope” was caught it; in the waves and sank. What happened to his shipmates, he never knew. But he himself managed to swim to an island. He dragged himself up on the shore and fell into a deep sleep. He slept for a long time. He woke up and tried to stand up. But he could not move. He discovered that his hands and feet ware fastened down. Then he was horrified to feel some small creatures creeping along his left leg upto his chest.
