Beating the Heat: The Poor man’s swimming pool.

We curse KESC to our heart’s delight if in the scorching mid-day heat, we are deprived of our afternoon siestas in air conditioned rooms.

We whine.

We complain.

We protest.

These kids who’ve probably never known the comfort of an air conditioner prove more resourceful. They find their own swimming pools to splash into.

    They wont have kiraya probably. I guess its better to enjoy here then spend money, reach Sea view & enjoy. Also, the water there & here may have only color as difference.

    I had the opportunity to attempt swim in a neher & i tell you what. Its betta than the swimming pools. Its more fun but yeah at the cost of cleanliness.

    right so the only difference would be water color, i can bet the gutter pool water will be cleaner than the filty black water at seaview

    Kids would be always kids. Try to see the positive perspective and smile would come to you.

    @Huzefa

    by not going to the sea they have probably saved themselves from getting drowned:)

    they are poor but are not stupid!
