Finding Oxygen

Nemo: Dad, let me go! I am not a baby anymore. I am ready to go on my own.

Marlin: Son, Please don’t go. It is dangerous out there. Please listen to me.

Nemo: Is it the sharks? I am not afraid of them, in fact I have befriended a bunch of vegetarian sharks.

Marlin: It is not the Sharks son. In fact, the Sharks are in danger too.

Nemo: Is it the Jelly fish? I know how to go in and out of a Jelly fish mesh. Please let me go.

Marlin: I don’t know if Jelly fish will be spared either.

Nemo: What is it dad? Why are you obsessed with me staying with you all the time. Why can’t you let me go on my own and explore the world. Is it the divers? Are you afraid they will catch me and I will end up in Sydney again?

Marlin: If you are caught, I can find you back son. I did it once, I can do it again.

Nemo: What is it then?

Marvin: It is the Oxygen. We are losing it, our habitat is being depleted of oxygen, by the supreme most intelligent beings in this world. You think your mother died protecting you from the shark? She was alive after the fight. But she died because there was not enough oxygen for her to recover.

Nemo’s face turns sad.

Nemo: So we will all die someday of no oxygen?

Marlin: I don’t know son. Let’s keep up our faith and hope that the Humans will spare our lives someday.

  1. Vishesh – Yes, we need other creatures in order to maintain ecological balance.

    Reema – Thank you. It is sad indeed and even sad that we do not realise our mistakes. Water bodies – is that an Env. Engineering term? πŸ™‚

    Arvind – Thank you and yes.

  2. First thing we should tell people is that farting inside water-bodies is not the answer. And then, secondly, blowing bubbles while under water is also not an option to increase O2 content… πŸ˜€

  3. Nikhil – Me and my wife read this comment and were laughing out aloud, good one πŸ™‚

    Anniyan – Thank you πŸ™‚ I thought this way of showing might reach the audience better than a mundane news reporting.
