Tragedy in Japan

The massive earthquake on March 11, followed by a catastrophic tsunami, has devastated the scientific and industrial giant, Japan. The explosions at nuclear plants spreading radiation have exacerbated the situation. It is indeed ironical that countries have invested heavily in nuclear power but have not joined hands to create an effective system to predict natural calamities and prevent such large-scale devastation.

That the multiple tragedies of earthquake, tsunami and nuclear radiation have hit a country that had to build itself from scratch after the atomic bombings in 1945 is indeed unfortunate. In fact, the danger from the damaged nuclear power plants reminds one of the nightmares of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Countries should send their scientists to Japan to avert another nuclear accident. Also, governments and the scientific community across the world must take note of this incident and put foolproof safety measures in place at their nuclear installations.

Satyanarayana Bairy,

Khammam
