Story of a justice that has not been, and perhaps never will be, delivered. Warren Anderson is responsible for Bhopal Gas disaster in and we are the silent spectators. Hypocrisy is mutual and shame should be shared.
It is a rare book that captures the humanity and the horror of an industrial accident. This one does it well. And it balances the perspective from the viewpoint of reason. What should have been, what did not and why “Bhopal and Union Carbide” would forever be a part of the Indian political and social motif any time when mega-industrial complexes are being talked about.
I was too young when Chernobyl happened, but I recall buying a National Geographic magazine and then going online t A good read. I was too young mddianoche Chernobyl happened, but I recall buying a National Geographic magazine and then going online to comprehend the magnitude of the disaster. It is difficult to convey devastation in words to someone who one hopes would never have to experience it. This book is worth a buy.
Per maggiori informazioni e per fare qualcosa di concreto se vi va, vi lascio il sito di The Bhopal Medical Appeal. I grew up reading about Bhopal gas tragedy in my textbooks and have always wanted to know more about it. As luck would have it, I chanced upon this book in my library.
Reading this book sent a shiver down my spine and yet I was medianlche glued to it. The style of narration, the setting of the characters, the way the story unfolds: This is one of those books where I knew how it was going to end and yet wanted to read it all the way through.
The tragedy that struck Bhopal has dis I grew up reading about Bhopal gas tragedy in my textbooks medoanoche have always wanted to know more about it. The tragedy that struck Bhopal has disturbed the lives of many thousand people.
Most of them belonging to poor families that dwelled ‘basthis’. The blame game can always be played and so is the victim card.
But the spirit that people ghopal Bhopal showed in overcoming this tragedy was well depicted by the author. This book left me pondering about many unanswered questions. But medianocbe it made me want to visit ‘The City of Begums’. One of the bad things about non-fiction is that sometimes you know the story isn’t going to end well and I think that’s why it’s taken me over 2 years to read this book.
I’d pick it up periodically and read bhopsl bit and then put it back down again. At 5 past midnight on the 3rd December the city of Bhopal in India was enveloped in a toxic cloud of gas.
That gas cloud came from Union Carbides plant which was not in operation, but was storing large quantities of dangerous chemicals.
Because the p One of the bad things about non-fiction is that sometimes you know the story isn’t going to end well and I think that’s why it’s taken me over 2 years ear read this book. Because the plant wasn’t being kept in full working order a bnopal of events led to an escape of gas and byopal 16, – 30, people although the indian government stopped counting at just under 1, This book tells the story of the economic environment in India, how Union Carbide came to build their plant in Bhopal and how just 3 years after it was offically opened it was effectively closed down and left to rot – despite numerous warnings that saftey standards had slipped.
It’s a book that brings to life the people that lived in the shadow of “the beautiful plant”, like the children who spent their days bhopap the trains looking for scraps to help feed their families.
The shanty towns that sprung up next to the plant full of people hoping to get jobs there. How the different religions lived together. It also looks at the after effects of that terrible night in December, how the survivors still suffer and in many cases have not received any compensation for their suffering.
The CEO of the company however has never been charged although a warrant for his arrest has remained unserved for years. An epic well written story about the true events behind India’s greatest chemical disasters. The author has dug deep into the background of the characters of the story bringing in information about their personal lives, their affiliation with UC and has managed to include every small detail in the bhopap.
I forgot at times that the book was about a tragedy. Yet at one point towards the end, I could not carry on reading continuously due to the sheer number of deaths explained vividly in each page.
This book truly is a landmark for understanding details regarding the criminal negligence on behalf of UC and is employees which lead to the death of many innocent civilians.
A well and simply written book about one of the biggest tragedies in India ever. Written with honesty, this book is recommended to people like me who had heard about the tragedy but not in detail. This book shows the plight of poor people in India even before the tragedy occurred and continues even decades after that.
It horrifies from the beginning till the very end. A rare book written in a rare style. He has done a fantastic job by weaving this dreadful tragedy around real people and how they went about their lives with trials and tribulations. He has really trying to give this tragedy a human touch by doing that. Readers like us can only feel just a tiny bit of what happened by reading when the agony of this tragedy will live for millennia for those who have either lived it or have had their loved ones lost to it.
The reason such books are important is because they make sure that humanity le He has done a fantastic job by weaving this dreadful tragedy around real people and how they went about their lives with trials and tribulations.
The reason such books are important is because they make sure that humanity learns from the mistakes and does what is moral and ethical. At 5 past midnight of 03 rd of december there was a lethal gas leak from the pesticide plant in Bhopal, a very poor city in India, built there many years before, but then closed with very few people taking care of the maintainance. People were exposed to methyl isocyanate MIC gas and killed by the thousands.
One of the worst industrial incident in the world. And nobody paid for this.
Detailed description of the massive tragedy. All this in a story-telling style makes it for a compelling read. Moving account of the Bhopal disaster from the perspectives of those who worked in the plant, the occupants of the shantytowns nearby and pilgrims who unfortunately were in the town’s train station as the disaster happened.
Would have liked more clarification on the cause of the disaster. Union Carbide implies that the primary cause was sabotage. At any rate, the most surprising part of the book was that this disaster has been prophesied by a local journalist, Rajkumar Keswani. People who live in Moving account of the Bhopal disaster from the perspectives of those who worked in the plant, the occupants of the shantytowns nearby and pilgrims who unfortunately were in the town’s train station as the disaster happened.

People who live in areas of industrial production should read this book and be aware of the processes that occur and the products that are stored in their living spaces. I remember the Bopal industrial disaster but not in any great detail when it actually occured and this is mdeianoche my detriment. I wanted to learn about what medianohce happened as I still only have the vaguest recollections of Union Carbide and no real conception of the events that led to this disaster, or even it’s true scope and legacy.
I would like to have heard more on the legacy actually, but overall I enjoyed this book and I found the approach very well done. Books about disasters work best for me I remember the Bopal industrial disaster but not in any great detail when it actually occured and this is to my detriment. Books about disasters work best for me when they balance three elements in the account: Historical context – so we understand the time, the situation, the current thinking at the time.
This is essential in my view, to understanding how the events described could have happened. Personal connection – we need to understand who the victims were, and those responsible for the event and the attempted rescus of victims 3.
Era medianoche en Bhopal by Dominique Lapierre (2 star ratings)
Detail on what caused the disaster – there is never just one cause. We need to understand the sequence of events, what was learned and how to prevent a recurrence This book does all these things well.
The story is told through the eyes of several of the main protagonists. If anything, this detail is overdone and the book takes a long time to get to the main event.
