The Bhopal disaster

Bhopal gas tragedy, 1984 was a catastrophe that is considered as one of the world’s industrial history. In the early morning hours of Dec 3, 1984 a rolling wind carried a poisonous grey cloud from the Union CcRbide Plant in Bhopal. 40 tons of toxic gas was accidentally released. And the result was an absolute nightmare ; an estimate of 10,000 or more people died, and 500,000 or more people suffered agonising injuries with disastrous effect.

Due to obvious safety reason, you can not visit the premises of the factory, so all my pictures are from the flyover facing the factory.
