“Healthy oceans, healthy planet”theme of the year sixteen
Three fourths of the earth has water all around-keep its sheen
In tact as our duty bounden on this day holy sure
On this great WORLD OCEAN DAY for our survival quite pure!
Great creation of the Almighty for the use of all
None to have the hegemony over the God’s gift tall
Yet all have duty to protect the protector-ocean
Giver of health and wealth to all on earth with great passion!
Sagar -the sea- is deemed as God in India by all
Offering prayer on the days holy taking bath
Not a dumping yard for garbage and carcass remember
Greatest gift of God -as an act of divine surrender!
Where is rain if oceans are not well protected by all
Where is food for human and animal beings sans sea
Where is transportation of men and goods sans sea route
All the reasons why on this day to resolve to protect sure!
