✍ Scream of the Mermaid

Once upon a time there was a beautiful island with charming and calm beaches, sparking waves flew one after another reminding us the elegance of the nature.
This beautiful island was the home for a once majestic nation. These people were living together in harmony with the nature which provided everything for them. They had beautiful gardens, they had large paddy fields and they had dozens of Cattle and they protected the nature as their own eyes.
Time passed and these people started to change. They became creative to innovate technology to ease their lives. but they lost the love to the nature. They started to cut down trees, spill waste to rivers, dump garbage to the sea, kill animals and they made everything a mess.
Nature could not bear this anymore. So, it started to hurt back. Rain was stopped. Trees and paddy fields could not produce food for people. rivers went dry. Once a calm and quiet sea became rough. nights became longer. darkness grew and deceases killed so many people. People did not get quality air to breath.
One day in a gloomy evening a strange thing happened in one of the beaches. The sea became rough, fishermen couldn’t control their boats. Sun got afraid and went down early. wild animals started shouting and a strange thing was washed up to the beach.
People gathered to the beach.
What was it? People were wondering. Few brave young men tried to reach it. And it was a human fish. It had a long tail like a fish. It had hands and a face like a human. It was a Mermaid.
This Mermaid was washed up to the beach half dead, strangled with garbage. Sick living in the toxic water and she was hardly breathing. young brave men helped to release her from strangled garbage. She slowly dragged herself back to the sea. before she swims away, she gave this message to the people of that island.
“Every second breath you take comes from the ocean. Ocean is mother who gives the life to the whole world”
People were sad, people were guilty. People realized that they should protect oceans and mother nature. They got the message very clearly. They wrote about this incident in their diaries. They kept this day memorized deep in their hearts.
And they stopped hurting the oceans and nature. They stopped dumping garbage everywhere. They stopped using toxic chemicals. They stopped killing too many animals. They cleaned the beaches. And then the nature responded back. It cleared skies, it gave rain to the people and rivers started flowing. flowers bloomed, fruits got ripen. Sea became calm.
This day ( 8th June ) was later named as “World Oceans Day”.
