Amazing Andamans Day -3 - Scuba Diving at Havelock Island



Day 3: Waited for this day for many years, and it was scuba diving. Long wait is over!!! After initial trainings I and my wife decided to go for our first ever diving. Initially i struggled a bit while training later on I was comfortable and my confidence was improved too. I asked the trainer before the jump, how much time it will require to come up if any problem? He said 5seconds!! Yes there I was happy thinking I will be back alive. Only 5 signs he taught us ok, not ok, up, down and to equalize ears. All of a sudden around me was blue and quiet. I could feel my heart beats fast and my ears hurt as I went deeper. Following my diving instructor, I equalized my ears often, until I felt comfortable to explore the underwater sea. The sea definitely looks beautiful underwater and it really amazed me to realize that there are thousands of creatures living under the sea. The Barrel sponge, blue reef, blue sea star, blue whips, Clark’s anemone, cone shell was really amazing. It was very peaceful under water. It was "DIVINE". It was really a great experience, seeing the beauty of sea wildlife because of the presence of many varieties of reef fish, corals. When we came back we decided to go for one more dive. 1st dive we went 10-12mts deep and 2nd dive it was 15mts. "Yes IT WAS DIVINE".

ज़पिघले  नीलम  सा  बहता  हुआ  यह  समां
नीली  नीली  सी  खामोशियाँ
न  कहीं  है  ज़मीन
न  कहीं  आसमां
सरसराती  हुयी  टहनियां , पत्तियां
कह  रही  हैं  की  बस  एक  तुम  हो  यहाँ
सिर्फ  मैं  हूँ  मेरी  सांसें  हैं  और  मेरी  धडकनें
ऐसी  गहराइयाँ
ऐसी  तनहाइयाँ
और  मैं  सिर्फ  मैं
अपने   होने  पे  मुझको  यकीन  आ  गया
