The world war is considered more destructive than any other war fought so far. It is because of the dropping of the atom bomb by the Allies Force on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The invention of the atomic bomb led to the destruction of the world. The war in Europe had drawn to its end. Yet, the war in the East went on savagely. The scientists of the Allies forces were working furiously to unleash the power lying imprisoned in the atom, not for peace, but to force the Empire of Japan to surrender. With the special variety of uranium designated U235, the scientists finally achieved the chain reaction which would proliferate explosion as cancer multiplies its diseased cells. The atomic bomb which was the product of many minds forced the Empire of Japan to surrender. The statesmen and the politicians were confronted with a tragic and agonizing dilemma of whether to drop the atom bomb or not. Ultimately that decision was taken by the three men: President Truman of the USA, Prime Minister Attlee of. Britain and Marshal Chiang Kai-shel of China.
Hiroshima was just settling to another day. Meanwhile, the bombs were dropped on Hiroshima at a speed of 32 feet per second. As soon as the bombs exploded, the sun was eclipsed by a blinding light. As a result of the atomization, thousands of people were killed. Those, who survived were stricken by mutilation and scalded flesh. Ten thousand casualties went to a single hospital. There were about twenty men behind a bush. Their faces were wholly burned. Their eyes sockets were hollow and the fluid from their eyes had run down their cheeks. Nearly two lakh people were death, mutilation, and irreparable loss. The victim was permanently sterilized, due to radiation. The pregnant women aborted and never conceived again. Others were reduced by wasting diseases. But a measure of guilt still remains as painful memories of Hiroshima and Nagasaki have left an indelible mark.
