The story tells that God decided to wipe mankind from the earth due to their great wickedness. He found a righteous man among all the people of that time and his name was Noah. God told Noah to build an ark for him and his family in preparation for a flood that would destroy all living thing on earth. God instructed him to bring seven pairs of clean animals along with all kind of food to be stored for the animals and his family while on the ark.He obeyed everything.After they entered inside the ark and rain fell on the earth for a period of forty days and nights.All living things wiped out from the earth due to the heavy flood that lasts for hundred and fifty days. Noah and his family was safe and the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. They waited for eight more months to dried out the earth surface fully. After that God asked Noah to come out and he gave a promise that he won’t make any destruction of living creatures again.As a sign of this everlasting promise God made a rainbow in the clouds.

Now he started to manufacture lot of Noah’s Ark and he is telling it is the modern and tiny version of the previous Noah’s Ark. Everybody trying to make their life more safe and that is why more requirement coming day by day. Now he is planning to construct more and more in large scale.We know human life is precious forever. So making secured life is also important. But one thing we can say proudly that effort behind this is so great and thankful. We know the value of human life cannot match with anyother thing in the world .
