August 6, 1946
It’s been one year after the terrific nuclear bombing of Hiroshima. Still, I cannot think about that day without terror and pain in my heart. Following the explosion, Hiroshima was transformed into a living hell. There was only death and destruction all around. Three days later, another nuclear bomb called ‘Fat Man’ was dropped on Nagasaki. In the history of warfare, it was the first time that nuclear bombs were used. Millions of people lost their lives in the attack. Many people lost their eyes, hearing ability etc. and many others suffer from severe burns. Even the surviving ones lost almost everything in their live including their loved ones and homes. The radiations that spread may also affect future generations in the form of genetic disorders. There is an increased rate of cancer and chronic diseases among the survivors. Luckily, my wife also survived with me. She reached the hospital on time. I also reached there after some time and dressed my wounds. My colleagues at hospital were actively involved in the rescue process. I too joined the rescue team which dealt with the casualties. The aftermath of the nuclear explosion was terrible. We, the people of Hiroshima were literally shocked to silence. Misery and gloom prevailed all over. People were shocked such that they could not even cry or scream. They were exhausted by the mental and physical pain. The effect of the explosion was very much devastating. Silence prevailed all over. But now, after one year, when we look back, the people of Japan overcome this calamity with exceptional courage. We rebuilt our lost cities and people came back to their normal life. But 6th August 1945 will remain as a black mark in the history of the world.
