"like a graveyard with not a tombstone standing."
A Japanese report on the bombing of Nagasaki

On the morning of AUG 6 1945 the U.S army dropped "little boy" on the city of Hiroshima. The immediate casualities reported was 1,00000 lives but still tens of thousand of people are suffering from radiation. Before the dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima, a test was conducted at New Mexico,After watching the test, Director J Robert Oppenheimer said that a verse from "Bhagavat Gita" came to his mind.

"If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst into the sky,
that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One
I am become Death, the shatterer of Worlds".

The horrors of atomic bombing is still hauting. Lets take a pledge that there will not be anymore 'Hiroshimas' and 'Nagasakis'
