परमाणु बम से आज़ादी!

हाल ही मे नोबेल प्राइज़ समिति ने अन्तराष्ट्रीय परमाणु हथियार समाप्ति संगठन (ICAN) को शांति पुरस्कार से नवाज़ा। समिति ने कहा की, “ग्लोबल वार्मिंग, प्रदुषण और आतंकवाद से भी ज्यादा भयानक है परमाणु हथ्यार।इसके उत्पादन को रोकना और परमाणु शक्ति को ऊर्जा के लिए उपयोग करना आवश्यक है।” जब अमेरिकी सेना ने अगस्त 1945 को जापान के हिरोशिमा और नागासाकी पर परमाणु बम गिराए थे, तो इसका प्रभाव पूरी दुनिया ने देखा था। शायद इंसान

Stop To Email

Mailing allows us to get work done quickly with people across cities, across buildings, across work-stations (J), across geographies.

Let us try Mindful Emailing. With a few mails during the week. Or all of them. COMPOSE an email. STOP to take one long deep breath. Pay attention to the breath.

(which was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1992). It generated enormously positive response, and after extensive lobbying and letter-writing efforts,
