H3C-N=C=O or Methyl Isocyanate, MIC. Toxicity: 0.02 parts per million.

35 years ago, at this very moment, 11:50 pm, 42,000 kgs of MIC were released into the Bhopal air. 15,342 died; 558,743 were permanently disabled. Anderson was allowed to escape.

NEVER forget. NEVER forgive.
30,000 kgs of MIC escaped within the first 30 mins. Then, silence. Then, death. 4,841 of those affected were pregnant women.

35 years later, Union Carbide plant in Bhopal remains THE MOST dangerously contaminated site in the world, with the exception of Chernobyl.

NEVER forget.
Rajiv Gandhi, the man who helped free Warren Anderson, was awarded Bharat Ratna in the same year as Sardar Patel, the man who helped free India.

NEVER forget.
