Swimming in Mumbai

My father, a doctor in the Indian Air Force was posted in Mumbai and was serving at the Naval Hospital. We had recently moved into our quarters in a lovely colony for naval personnel called Navy Nagar which also had a good swimming pool.

The pool belonged to the Navy and was not far from our home. It used to be open for officer's children on every alternate day and I used to go there soon after returning from school. Each day I used to swim for about 70 breadths of the pool (around 2000m>. I did that for 4 years until May 1991.
