The atomic bomb was more than a weapon of terrible destruction. It was a psychological weapon.
-Henry L. Stimson,1947.
Do you remember what happened on today’s date, 70 years ago, on 6th August 1945? No? On 9th August 1945? No? Ok. Let’s re-read about the world’s biggest catastrophic and prodigal attacks related to a warfare. THE ATOMIC BOMBINGS OF HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI. The attacks occurred during world war-2 on Japan, in the final phase, The pacific war. This was one and the only war, in which a atomic bomb was used as a weapon. A Nuclear weapon. The war that crossed all its limit.
You cannot imagine the carnage those atomic bombs created! An atomic bomb made up of Uranium named TINY BOY was dropped on Hiroshima on 6th August, 1945. Thousands of people died on the spot with thousands of people died on the following days due to radiation effects. The Japanese emperor Hirohito, thought surrendering to this was not a good idea and commanded his commanders that the war should go on. Somehow this conversation was decoded by the US magic code-breakers and this followed was followed by a more dangerous attack on Nagasaki with Plutonium Atom bomb. The atomic bomb made of Plutonium named FAT MAN was dropped on 9th August, 1945. Thousands of people were scattered here and there. The intensity was such. Around 1,29,000-2,46,000 people lost their lives taking both these attacks into account. And many more people died due to the radiation effects the following days. Still to the date, people suffer because of those explosions. The heat generated due to those explosions is about 3900 degrees centigrade. Just feel the heat. Finally on 12th August, 1945 the Japanese Emperor surrendered and signed an allied treaty and met the agreements with united states. If not the Emperor had surrendered, many more attacks as such were planned on different Japanese cities! Cannot even imagine that!
Even to the date some people suffer with several diseases due to the radiations of those explosions. Today 6th August marks the 70th anniversary of Hiroshima explosion and on 9th August of this year, it will mark the 70th anniversary of Nagasaki explosion. We as humans can just pray that their souls are resting in peace.
There is a lot more to know about this incident. How these attacks were planned, who were the people behind these attacks, what happened after the attacks et cetera. You can find all this information on this link.
Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
Wars, which were said to be waged for establishing peace in the world, did the opposite. Wars extirpated the peace from its root and gave rise to new seeds called Fear. With people living in that growing fear, they decided to be more secure and thus started preparing weapons on their own, in times of need. To prove that their security is more powerful than others, it gave rise again to a new set of wars.
THE NEW KILLER WEAPON- 21st Century:
Are the world wars over? Yes. Is peace established in world? No. Are the wars over in real? No. Just the intensity is reduced. They are still going on. Between the countries, between the states, between the cities, between the neighbours, between the people and within the mind. The war within the mind is considered as the new killer weapon of modern days.
The atomic bombs made up of depression, anger, envy, ego, hatred, loneliness and sadness are being dropped every other second on our neurons destroying all the data of morals from our brain. That’s why they say in anger, envy and hatred, our mind doesn’t work! How can it work if the neurons in it are brutally killed! The people are turning into selfish, greedy and mean. These wars will go on till we sign a treaty with happiness, humanity, love, success, passion and peace. Then we will be happy.
If there are no wars in our mind, there will be no wars outside the mind. There will be no wars around the world. Everyone will be peaceful. Everyone will be happy. The perfect state of Nirvana will be attained.
The one who is unmoved by the ups and down of life, the one who is stable in both times of sadness and happiness, that person can only be called as Enlightened person.
So, enlighten your self. Fill your life with light. If peace is in mind, it will be in the world. Thanks for reading. Keep your mind peaceful. I am also trying.
