To swim or not to swim

A post after a long time. I was slightly busy with business (if you can believe that!) and pleasure. On the pleasure front, I went to Hyderabad over the weekend to meet a college friend. No I didnt visit the Charminar or have Hyderabadi biryani at a midnight buffet, but I did relax around the Hussain Sagar Lake and checked out the Imax at Hyd's only multiplex.

In other news, I have started swimming. Rather, I have started trying to swim in the IIT pool.
In a daring show of courage and determination, I defeated a kid in a photo-finish breadth-crossing race yesterday :) My coach and manager Mr. Manish Bhide will attest to this fact.
Ofcourse, there are other pool-related cheap stunts, like lingering around the pool area during the ladies slot but more on that later...

PS: Bhide got 5 kgs of grub from his fiancee, so suddenly I have started making demos at his room instead of mine :)

Thanks to the world class coaching of Captain Bhide, I am learning free style swimming pretty fast. Red cap to main bhi pehenta hoon par woh shine nahin karta :)) I can imagine Shourya looking like a 6'2" buffoon wearing that stupid cap.

He heh.. Varun , beta ab mujhe samajh mein aaya why we have separate slots for ladies...it is because of people like you who wont let them swim in peace.
