70 Years

70 years- a very short time period for the Earth, but a long time for the most intelligent being in the Earth…
70 years- many Earthlings have lived and died within this time span…
70 years- many progresses have been made…
70 years- many wars have been seen…
…a day to be remembered forever, actually two- 6th and 9th August, 1945…
…the day when the best of Earthlings in intelligence proved that they could be the worst…
…the day the atomic bombs were dropped in densely populated cities to kill millions of people and to leave the traces of the devastation for centuries
For all these 70 years, the day has been remembered. Humans proved that day that they could do anything against anyone to gain power. Innocent people of Japan, who had nothing to do with the war were made the victims of a mad idea.The bombings were not required for the war but that does not mean they were not necessary.
The effect of bombings were not confided only to those who suffered. The multiplier effect of the US Power was seen all around the world. The might of the weapon of mass destruction made them rule the world. Not only that, other nations learnt, “Never try to intimidate a nation with nuclear weapons. Who can say when their mad politicians use them to destroy the world.”
As for Hiroshima and Nagasaki, they have been recovered as major cities but no crops, no grass has grown yet and it’s unknown until when. The wounds still give pain.

    Hello Sandeep 🙂

    I liked reading this story and its morale. I read an essay in my high school which said “Science is a good servant but a bad master.” It’s so true. Now earth life seems to be on verge of extinction.

    Keep sharing with us 🙂


    1. Humans can only decide what we do with the knowledge we have. All we want is love and peace. Wars are inevitable at times but that does not mean destroying everything.
      (I’m sorry I have to say this, but the name is Sandeep with a t at the end. I am sorry for the confusion.)
