Barack Obama at Hiroshima: World without nuclear weapons!

Barack Obama at Hiroshima: As expected, U.S. President Barack for dropping an atomic bomb on Hiroshima in 1945. But such is the power of personal presence that by the simple act of laying a wreath at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial...


The gesture by the outgoing US President in recognising Hiroshima as mankind’s demonstration of its power to destroy itself and acceptance of the responsibility of collective leadership to ‘pursue a world without’ nuclear weapons need to be understood in right spirit.
Humanity need to pursue nations to destroy the huge collection of weapons of mass destruction including nuclear arsenal gradually, but in a time-bound manner. First, major powers and even smaller countries which possess nuclear weapons need to
be transparent about the stock and safety measures. Second, world organisations like the United Nations need to deliberate and convince nations like US and Russia that even if they have to own nuclear weapons, the stock should be ‘need-based’ and not on the basis of one-upmanship(A number game, competing to have more number of nuclear warheads than the enemy!).
