3 Years Later, All is Still Not Well in Fukushima

•, By Ask Prabhu
It had resulted in the meltdown of three of the six reactors in the nuclear power plant and still ‘nothing is well in Fukushima’, said G Sundarrajan from Poovulagin Nanbargal. He was a recent visitor to Japan and Fukushima.
An advanced country like Japan is in a pathetic situation now, and Fukushima has taught the world what should not have happened, said Sundarrajan. The misfortune was evident as he narrated the poignant tale of the refugees who had been displaced from their homes and livelihood.
The entire area around the plant at a radius of 25 km has been evacuated and the places beyond this perimeter have been marked as ‘voluntary evacuation zones’. People who still choose to stay in this zone have to keep up with restrictions. Children cannot play outside for more than an hour and clothes have to be dried inside. Women want to evacuate for fear of their children’s health but the men do not want to abandon their farmlands and livelihoods. “A number of ‘nuclear divorce’ happen due to this reason. This poses a larger social threat that nobody anticipated,” said Sundarrajan.
