Learning to swim – enjoyed – not fully trained – pushed inside – started drowning…….
Uday and his friends had joined swimming classes a few days ago. The boys, young and brimming with enthusiasm, would practise for hours and dream of diving from the highest point of the pool. One day, when the trainer was not around, they dived into the water without life jackets.
Uday enjoyed diving from the height of three feet and six feet. That day he went higher up and stood on the plank that was at least 15 feet from the swimming pool. Before his friends could say anything, he dived into the water. The next moment, everyone saw him struggling to come up to the surface of water. The trainer arrived just in time and dived in to save Uday from drowning.
Uday and his friends were reprimanded for their foolishness. Uday learnt his lesson that day, and promised his trainer that he would never risk his life again.
