Tainted Blue

The sea was flowing with its torpid energy. The gentle waves were making the sand wet and the faintest smell of the ocean hit my nostrils. That unique odor of the sea still reminds me of the blue paradise that I saw several years ago.
A few weeks ago most of the precious assets of the ocean, from the smallest green algae to the largest blue whale were being deceased. All our precious treasures were destroyed due to the negligence of the authority

 
This is a picture that I captured at the Coconut Tree Hill Beach in Mirissa.
 
The loss this destruction has brought cannot be recovered by any monetary values. Those corals, fish, whales, dolphins, turtles, and every other innocent creature that got destroyed did nothing wrong, unlike us they didn’t pollute the ocean neither did they destroy its livelihoods! Sadly those poor creatures had to face this destruction. Although the authorities of our nation are behaving so apathetic about this situation, to the lives of the ocean it means the whole world to them!

The negative impact that this massive destruction has caused cannot be solved easily shortly. Most probably now the water has more oils, chemicals, and debris compared to the sodium quantity it has in it!
Sadly our future generation will be able to see only pictures and video clips of fish, turtles, and corals and not the real lives in the sea.

Finally I strongly but sadly would like to say that we will not be able to see that blue paradise ever again. The only question that keeps disturbing me is “Whose negligence is the cause of the destruction, of the Express Pearl?”

A very passionate article. Well researched and beautifully written. Yesterday was world sea turtle day- and it’s sad this catastrophe has caused the death of many sea animals. An irreversible damage caused by negligence and greed of unscrupulous men. Wish you all the best. Remember- every single voice counts.
