The wider society we live in is made up of individuals, like each of us. The Bhopal gas disaster is marking the 30th anniversary this year. It is hard to believe the survivors are still waiting for justice, dignity, and some form of resolution. Many people who have suffered man-made or natural disasters are psychologically traumatised, unable to escape from the haunting memories and aftermath. It is impossible to change the past. So perhaps we may ask what is possible about the past that helps relieve the pain that survivors face? Between us there is probably and answer. We just haven't coordinated efforts yet.
