Yes, that is true! It is not a fiction. We swam with crocodiles. It was the most foolish thing a group of youngsters could do. As long as the crocodiles kept themselves invisible by staying under the water, we were fine swimming with them. When one day a crocodile made for us, we knew that Abayo, the old man who used to punish us for swimming in the lake, was not an enemy after all. We had always considered him sadist who enjoyed depriving us of fun.
Didn't we know that there were crocodiles in the water? Of course we did! We, however, had not met any whenever we entered the water to swim. The most dangerous enemy is one who doesn't make his presence known. For certain things in life, only one mistake is enough for a tragedy.
There is something worse than swimming with ferocious crocodiles. Even if an intoxicated person decided to dance at the precipice of a steep canyon, there is still something that is incomparably dangerous than that.
In Swimming with Crocodiles, the author recounts the chilling story of crossing paths with a crocodile and goes ahead to point out how some decisions and actions are a cause to wonder how mankind can sometimes behave irrationally. With a heart that loves mankind, the author bemoans the way mankind has 'willingly' sold themselves into stupefaction. He calls his readers to consider both the possible and guaranteed consequences of their actions.
