Hiroshima Day: Japan recalls World War 2 tragedy on its 77th anniversary, What happened on that day?

Today is the 77th anniversary of the first nuclear attack by the United States, with no regard for innocent people, children, or the elderly. The memorial erected here in memory of the victims reads, "We will never allow such atrocity to happen again."

However, even after three-quarters of a century after the atrocity, Sri Lanka-Palestine-Afghanistan, this atrocity continues to take place.

"1945 August 6 at 8 am. That morning, as usual, Hiroshima, the port city of Japan, was bustling with excitement. The time when everyone was busy in the morning. Children ready to go to school; Dad, some home mom, ready to go to work. Mothers are busy preparing lunch and breakfast. Suddenly the siren sounded. Warning of enemy air attack. The fear and panic of where the plane will bomb and who will die, has consumed everyone.

Bomb blast

A bomb falls from an airplane. Everyone who was expecting to hear a loud noise was a bit scared. Two planes flew overhead.

Those who were watching were amazed as to where the bomb would fall. The first plane that arrived dropped something like a pumpkin by parachute. A second plane was circling there. Some people watched in amusement as something fell from the plane, unaware of the impending disaster.

Regarding these bomb blasts, the visitors who went there mentioned, "Hiroshima and Nagasaki cities were seen as crematoriums without cremation."

The bomb dropped from the plane did not explode. It didn't make any big noise. But everywhere there was a great storm. Glare light. The brightness of the light was so high that there was not even a shadow. Two flashes one after the other. A plume of smoke and dust rising about 2,000 feet was seen after the flash. The sky is dark; The sky, which had been clear till then, turned completely dusty and like night.

Those exposed to the light suddenly felt pain. Their clothes were burnt and the surrounding houses were in ruins. The glass was shattered and many were injured. The city itself was destroyed. All in a few seconds. When the beam of light subsided, a huge fire spread everywhere. In no time the center of the city was in great flames. All combustibles began to burn themselves; Even people's skin was scorched by the heat.

At the heart of the bombardment, thousands of people died suddenly. Not even their bones were spared. Everything burned in a flash; Even the ash was not surpassed. Those who died in this way died without great agony and pain. But those who were some distance from the epicenter of the bombardment died painfully in the fire and debris. There is an outcry everywhere. Not a single person was spared to lend a helping hand.

Except for stone and soil within a radius of about 280 meters from the bomb site in Hiroshima, all combustible materials were reduced to ashes in less than a second. The amount of heat released from the atomic bomb is said to be 3 lakh degrees Celsius. In the next one second, the amount of heat spread over a radius of 280 meters was 4 to 5,000 degrees Celsius. Flames were visible more than 2,000 feet into the city. A total area of ​​about 16 km was completely destroyed. Grids are ground level. Within minutes of the blast, heavy clouds of dust and smoke filled the sky, darkening the day.

Two rivers ran through the city of Hiroshima. All those near these rivers started jumping in without fear of the depth to cool off the heat after the atomic bomb blast. Whether it is male or female, whether the body has clothes or not, whether the body beneath it has life or not, no one has any thought.

Thinking that it would be enough to reduce the heat somehow, it was only after jumping into the river with the hanging bodies that the river water was also boiling.

As soon as the fire extinguished Jewel, thick clouds of poisonous soot floated overhead. Soon it started raining. Aha, all the people who got wet in the rain became fools, rejoicing that at least it was raining to cool the heat. It was black acid rain. Acid rain is caused by radioactive particles in the raindrops. Those who were showered perished in body acid.

Hiroshima, Three days after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki on August 9. About one lakh people were killed in this atomic bomb blast. America playfully named the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima as "LITTLE BOY" and two days later the atomic bomb dropped on "Nagasaki" was named "FAT MAN".

Those who were in Hiroshima that day did not know that an atomic bomb had fallen on their city. Hiroshima was the first city to be hit by an atomic bomb. About 70,000 of the city's total population of 3.5 lakh died in those few minutes. Another 70,000 people died over the next few days as a result of the bombing. Similarly, about 74,000 people died in Nagasaki. The death and damage caused by this Agora bomb attack has not been accurately estimated till date. We can only say that the damage is unprecedented.

Trapped in the rubble and unable to come out, many died miserably without losing their lives. Regarding these bomb blasts, the visitors who went there mentioned that "Hiroshima and Nagasaki cities were seen as crematoriums without cremation".

The United States government, which staged this atrocity, in its statement said that World War 2 was ended by this atomic bomb. World War 2 would have lasted many more months if the atomic bomb had not been dropped on Japan. More people will die because of it. It noted that the United States has ensured that people do not die on a large scale. Controversy continues around the world about the US government's justification for this brutal massacre.


A memorial has been erected to those who died in the atomic bomb blast in Hiroshima, where thousands of children, civilians and soldiers died. The inscription on the memorial says, 'We will never allow such atrocity to happen again'. Yes. He said, "The pledge we have to make on this Hiroshima Day is to fight against such cruelties by insisting on world peace, world equality, global security and sustainable development."
