When I told a friend I had joined an open water diving course, the first visual she thought of was this:
No, not of the lovely lady on the right, but the ageing, grumpy, rather unfit looking Sanjay Dutt (extreme left). And people who I call friends are laughing hysterically at the thought of me in a wetsuit like Sunju baba.
And to think, my motivation was Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, my favourite stars learning to dive.
Well at least I haven’t found any reason to be grumpy about these diving classes. Loving all the SCUBA equipment, learning complex manoeuvres of ‘hovering’ or achieving neutral buoyancy, and all those ‘what-if’ exercises of losing the mask, running out of air, and what-not.
At our last pool session, our instructor thought it would be cool to show us what we looked like at 5-7m deep.
Around a camera, girls will be girls, always happy to pose:
The proof of the pudding is tomorrow – our first open water dive trip to complete the certification. Let’s see how deep and blue is the deep blue sea!
