Welcome

The famous, terrible and tender picture, top left, was taken by Magnum photographer, Raghu Rai on the morning of December 3rd, 1984, after the night of horror in Bhopal when a huge cloud of poison gas 500 times more toxic than cyanide spewed from a factory belonging to Union Carbide Corporation.

Thousands died in hideous ways. As the sun rose on streets full of corpses, Raghu found himself in a graveyard where a man was burying his young daughter. The father had covered the tiny body but then, unable to bear parting from her, brushed the earth away for one last look. Read more

Something very shameful is happening in Bhopal and hardly anyone knows about it. Children are being born dead and malformed in numbers not seen since the spate of horrific births that followed the gas catastrophe of 1984.

Mention Bhopal and most people think of the horrific events of 3rd December 1984, when the city was devastated by a huge leak of poison gas from a pesticide factory owned by US chemical giant Union Carbide.

Thousands died in agony, choking, blinded by gas that burned their eyes and seared their lungs. More than half a million were injured. Today in the city, upwards of 100,000 people are still chronically ill from the injuries suffered on that night. The death toll has reached more than 25,000.

But another disaster lay in wait, biding its time, till it could ambush and destroy a whole new generation.
