Students participated in the recording of a drama on the occasion of Hiroshima Day and also recorded an individual talk on different topics at Akaashavani, Mangaluru. The recording was done in the AIR studio on 21/07/2022.
The drama was regarding the adverse effects, which is a sequel even now, as a result of the atomic bomb blast tragedy that took place on 9th August 1945.
The problems faced by the civilians there at present are briefed out in the form of a skit where a young girl having lots of dreams in her mind is suffering from cancer because of this bomb blast that took place long ago. The war between countries led to a never-ending trauma in the lives of people, which they are suffering even now due to genetic mutations caused by nuclear radiation.
