After registering name in the counter I was actually preparing myself mentally how to indulge in such exciting diving session. After taking a small speed boat we had been transported to another middle-sized launch. There I was given a number and metal shackles on the waist.
Then I stepped into the water, there I was instructed with basic signs of scuba diving. Then the trainer said a fantastic word with his Konkani accent Hindi, "Madam sara darr bahar fekne ka tabhi ja payega andar" - Madam you have to lose your fear then only you can enjoy your dive. I also answered him in my way, " Haan bhaiya aap pe bharosa kar rahe hai aap hi utha ke lana zameen par" - As I am trusting you then you should take me back to the land on your own risk. From the very beginning, I told them I don't know how to swim. He just replied that I didn't have to know swimming for scuba diving.
