Angels of apathy - Food for thought!

I once read that shadows were printed on concrete walls of buildings and pavement in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. These shadows were imprinted by the historic nuclear blasts. Some say that these shadows can still be seen even though the bodies that made them were never found - evaporated they were - as if they never existed.

Imagine the peril of the ones who have seen the shadows scorch the tumultuous grounds. For them, the shadows are mere curiosities of history - images of a time that has passed. What we must not forget is that if they have all come to be mere whimsical fantasies, they are indeed angels of apathy.

Here are some more pictures:
