AHMEDABAD :

Schoolchildren wear the colors of India’s flag as they pray for world peace at the Anjuman-e-Islam School in Ahmedabad, while commemorating the 71st anniversary of the nuclear explosion over Nagasaki.

71 years ago today, the second atomic bomb fell on the Japanese city of Nagasaki. Some 190,000 survivors of the nuclear attacks of World War II – the ‘hibakusha’ – still carry with them memories of death and destruction, radiation-induced diseases and social stigma that the bombs left in their wake.
