Et too Brutus !!
For those of you who are aware of my swimming ordeal, this will be an interesting footnote !
Had called India this weekend. Spoke to my brother for a long time and among other things he asked me how my swimming was going. I told him that everything except the side breathing is okay.. He seemed very knowledgeable about the whole swimming thing. So I dug deeper and what I found shocked me !
Shocker 1 : Apparently the dude knows how to swim !!
Shocker 2 : He learnt swimming 5 years ago !!
Shocker 3 : He went to swimming classes when he was working in Bangalore, at the YMCA
Shocker 4 : He went for a lesson every alternate day for two full months.
Shocker 5 : He even had lessons on CPR, rescuing fellow swimmers etc..
Shocker 6 : He kept this a secret for this long !!!
I asked him why he would keep these a secret and his response ... No shocks here..
Mom told me "you should not mention a word about your swimming to your brother. My only eldest son ?!? should not be encouraged by his brothers exploits and try something. He is in a far away land where I cannot see him even if I feel like it. What if something happens to him in America ?"
