They float on in their leaf boat
with Baadshah guiding it through the water using his stick.
Chhutki : Goodness,
Baadshah! That sound is getting so loud and frightening .
Baadshah: Yes, the water
too has become murky
and awfully smelly. Don't touch it.
( The sound has now become almost deafening.
Baadshah steers the leaf boat carefully near the left bank. They move very slowly towards
the turning. They stop and slowly look around the bend. What they see is absolutely
shocking! A little ahead, a huge drainpipe pours out gallons of dirty, foul smelling
water, which falls into the river with a thundering sound.)
Chhutki : Oh my goodness,
Baadshah! This is the most frightening thing I have ever seen !
Baadshah: Yes, Chhutki,
think, just one pipe pouring in so much dirt and poison into the river! Now there must be
many more such pipes which empty out their waste into this river.
Chhutki : The poor fish,
animals and plants ....water is their home....they will all
be sick and soon die. But Baadshah, where is all this filth coming from?
Baadshah:Just shut your
eyes and count till three, You'll soon be big and then can see.
