In this chapter, Vishal and Rohini embark on a journey to the Philippines with their father, Captain Kumar, on the M.V Trishna. The ship carries a special cargo of food for the people of a small island that was recently struck by a devastating typhoon. As the ship sets sail, Rohini starts feeling seasick, much to Vishal's annoyance.
Vishal decides to visit his father on the bridge and learns from him that there is a typhoon brewing in the area. The captain receives a weather report confirming his suspicions, and he instructs the crew to secure everything on deck. As the day progresses, the wind picks up speed, and dark clouds gather in the sky. The waves become violent, and the ship starts rolling and pitching dangerously.
Despite his father's warning, Vishal leaves the cabin and goes to the bridge. He discovers that the gangway is damaged and hitting the ship's side. The ship changes course and struggles to withstand the fierce winds. Suddenly, an alarming sound is heard, and Vishal realizes that water is pouring into the engine room. Efforts are made to plug the leak, but they are unsuccessful.
In a desperate attempt to save the ship, Vishal suggests tilting the ship to expose the hole on its side, just like he had done in a previous boating incident. Captain Kumar agrees, and the crew works together to shift the water in the bottom tanks and create a wooden plug to seal the leak. Finally, the plug holds tight, and the pumping operations begin to dry out the engine room.
Captain Kumar expresses relief and gratitude to Vishal for his idea, as it ultimately saved the ship. The weather conditions improve, and the ship is back on course, albeit a few hours late. Rohini, who had been seasick, starts feeling better, and they finally approach the islands of the South China Sea. The spirit of the sea seems to have calmed, and the journey is expected to be smooth from that point forward.
