Karsaz Swimming Pool Karachi

We were having wonderful time and the management of Karsaz Karachi was providing all facilities to keep us in adventurous mood. My dormitory mate (late) Muhammad Idrees (kit no 366), asked me to accompany him to the swimming pool. I also thought that it would be fun as majority of our friends will also be there. Indeed, it was a nice place and well kept. Since I didn’t know swimming,

I entered the pool in an area having shallow depth of water, and those who could swim, were swimming in deep water. Our petty-officer Iqbal, was also there to look after us. As I saw him, I waved at him. He appeared to be in a good mood as usual, came towards me, held me up by my arm and pulled me out of the pool.

“Razzaq; I heard you had a bout of seasickness. How are you feeling now?”, he asked.

“Sir! I am feeling better today.”

Swimming in the Pool

While we were strolling alongside the pool, he abruptly pushed me in. I cannot describe the state in which I was, as I knew that I was thrown in the section of the pool having deep water and that I didn’t know swimming, and that these were the last moments of my life and that I will soon die. The next thing that I felt was that while I was going down, I was pushed by water upside. As soon as my head came out of water, I took a deep breath and struggling to keep afloat, I moved my arms and legs swiftly and I noticed that my faint struggle was keeping me afloat. 

Swimming Classes in Karachi

During the swimming classes, petty officer Iqbal extended his stick towards me which I grasped firmly and I saw that I was at the edge of pool and by holding my hand he took me out of the pool. I was furious at him and asked him:

“How could you do that to me sir?”

“Razzaq! Do you remember that you had been asking me to teach swimming to you?  And today I have taught you swimming and you are a swimmer now”.

“But sir! didn’t you notice that I was about to drown?”

“Not at all.  I was there to make sure that you were safe and sound.  And the next thing that I want to tell you is that you cannot learn swimming until you get into the water. And look!  you have learnt the first lesson of swimming today”.

Swimming Lesson and become a swimmer

On hearing this, my anger turned into excitement. Sir Iqbal now asked me to do it again so as to gain confidence, and he cautioned me not to breathe while being inside water. I repeated this a dozen times and each time I did it, I noticed that I was doing it more confidently and the movements of my arms and legs were getting into rhythm.  I was a swimmer now.  From that day on I got addicted to swimming and would do it every day till we were there in Karsaz. Upon our return to Petaro from Karachi, I had become a swimmer after attending swimming classes
