Man, Ram. Yes. That is sad.
When I was a young boy. I used to watch this program called "The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau." Which ran for 7 seasons on TV. They always showed it during the weekends. And just about everyone in our family
watched that program. I believe this man's program was one of the seeds that spawned my love for the sea.
