Bhopal gas tragedy is the world's deadliest industrial disaster. It has been 35 years since half of the Bhopal population coughed and complained about their eyes and skin burning up, until they either met a quick death or lasted long enough to see their descendants suffer alongside.

But also give relief and rehabilitation to the victims and their families.
