Swimming in New Delhi

My father wanted me to learn swimming when I was 7. He first joined me in the swimming pool of the Army Officer's Club in Delhi Cantonment, seen here

The coach there had a tough time teaching me as I was refusing to learn and finally my father decided to join me in a professional swimming institute at Talkatora swimming pool which was recently built for the Asian Games.

My father's friend also joined his son in the same institute which was quite far from our quarters in Delhi Cantonment. They took turns and used to take us, the 2 kids on their scooter every alternate day. They did it patiently for 1 year. Thanks to them and the very meticulous coach, we learned the right technique of swimming.
