Yet so many of us know hardly any details of an incident that wiped out almost an entire city of our country. Union Carbide implies that the primary cause was sabotage.
This multinational start a huge plant in India, overestimating the Indian market. But the spirit that people of Bhopal showed in overcoming this tragedy was well depicted by the author.

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 bholal was effectively closed down and left to rot – despite numerous warnings that saftey standards had slipped. The carelessness of leaving 2 tanks of MIC when the plant was never going to produce sevin again, without taking bare minimum safety measures.
Julie rated it it was bho;al Dec 10, 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. The audacity of storing 60 tons of MIC in the middle of the city and turning the decontamination center off. It’s not just the story of that isolated incident but everything that led up to it, of the people involved and what became of each of them.
I also felt like the Sikhs were generally characterized negatively which was disturbing.
And if you have any one who has had the misfortune of being in Bhopal to witness this tragic event, they’ll retell the same tale.

Not many people know the basic details and only thing that is clear is that lots of people dies as a result of an easily avoidable tragedy.
And it balances the perspective from the viewpoint of reason. Historical context – so we understand the time, the situation, the current thinking at the time.
This book with its brilliantly researched information is not only informative but also an amazing read. They soon abandon the factory with tons of mic in storage.
