Bubble. Float. Dive

The other day, I walked up in a nearby sports academy. Obviously to inquire ‘something’ I have been forever terrified of.

Sun was setting down the horizon. Its beams straightly falling on the ripples in the pool. The sun was certainly reflecting off the pool, illuminating its surface, spreading glitter all over.  The green-blue little tides in the water sparkled, as I sight them.

What else did I sight?

This view- the kids who must be of the age 4 or 5, not even grown up 4 feet, posing their heads down and hands raised pointing to dive into the 5.5 feet deep pool, slightly staggers me off.  Taking my sight off all the young old swimming enthusiasts there, I focus on what I have come for. While I look around for the coach, I hit into a female who I guess has come to collect her kid. We both talk for a while.

Pointing towards another female who is standing at the other end, she tells me “See there! she is the coach.”

While I am about to thank her and walk towards the coach, the female could not resist telling the coach’s story.

“And she is the best coach, OK?”, she further adds.

In a while, I meet the coach. I meekly tell her, “I am signing up for swimming. But what are the chances I’ll not drown?”

She smiles back and says nothing but “I will see that”.

I return home, but the story still oscillates in my head. Years back, the one who joined the same sports academy as a member of house-keeping. The one who once guarded the swimming pool, is today a coach.

I was astonished.

I was encouraged.
