Book Description
the Bhopal Saga is an incisive analysis of the one of the worst industrial accidents that has taken place in the recent past. On the night of December 2, 1984, while Bhopal slept, 43 tonnes of methylisocyanate and other substances leaked from the union carbide factory located in the city. By next morning the place was a graveyard of dead humans and animals. Of the 520,000 people who were exposed to the gasses 8,000 died during the first week and 8,000 later. The impact on the survivors are visible even today. The pesticide plant from where the gas leaked was half-owned by the multinational union Carbide and half by the Government of India.
