    It occurred on the night of 2–3 December 1984 at the Union Carbide India Limited (UCIL) pesticide plant in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. Over 500,000 people were exposed to methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas and other chemicals. The toxic substance made its way into and around the shanty towns located near the plant.

    The Bhopal disaster, also referred to as the Bhopal gas tragedy, was a gas leak incident in India, considered the world's worst industrial disaster.

    The Bhopal Gas Tragedy, 1984 was a catastrophe that had no parallel in the world’s industrial history. In the early morning hours of December 3, 1984, a rolling wind carried a poisonous gray cloud from the Union Carbide Plant in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh (India). Forty tons of toxic gas (Methy-Iso-Cyanate, MIC) was accidentally released from Union Carbide’s Bhopal plant, which leaked and spread throughout the city. The result was a nightmare that still has no end, residents awoke to clouds of suffocating gas and began running desperately through the dark streets, victims arrived at hospitals; breathless and blind. The lungs, brain, eyes, muscles as well as gastro-intestinal, neurological, reproductive and immune systems of those who survived were severely affected. When the sun rose the next morning, the magnitude of devastation was clear. Dead bodies of humans and animals blocked the street, leaves turned black and a smell of burning chili peppers lingered in the air. An estimated 10,000 or more people died. About 500,000 more people suffered agonizing injuries with disastrous effects of the massive poisoning.

    Visit Remember Bhopal Museum; A unique museum preserving the belongings and pictures of victims of the Bhopal gas tragedy, in which thousands had lost their lives after inhaling toxic gases leaked from Union Carbide plant, was thrown open to public today on the 30th anniversary of the disaster. The first-of-its-kind museum, situated at New Housing Board Colony near now-defunct Union Carbide plant here, captures the horror which unfolded on the intervening night of December 2-3, 1984 and also the trail of destruction in the world's worst industrial disaster.

    On the way back to hotel Visit the Rehabilitation Centre. These centres are trying to serve mankind in effort to make Bhopal a better place to live in.
