Lahore’s own swimming pool

How many of us remember days like this? Going to the canal in the blistering heat of the summer afternoons. There were always throngs of people there, old and young, all there for one purpose and one purpose only…to escape the trecherous heat with a dip in the canal. Mind you, it was much more cleaner then than it is now but come next summer, if I am in Lahore, I would not mind taking another dip in my boyhood swimming pool.

Kids learning to swim by filling air in their shalwars and stuffing styrofoam to allow them to float. I don’t know how well it works because I never tried with styrofoam.
