NUCLEAR BOMB IN GANGA

Author Name: RK Yadav | Format: Paperback | Genre : Reference & Study Guides | Other Details

The name of this book, “Nuclear Bomb in Ganga” sounds fearsome. But, it is a hard fact which has to be brought in black and white for the safety of millions of Indians who consider the river “sacred Ganga” or “the Ganges” as their mother.

After China detonated their first nuclear test on 16 October, 1964 at Lop Nor in the Gobi desert of Xinjiang province, Western China, the USA was keen to keep track of further nuclear designs of Communist China in this region. With the help of India, which was humiliated during the hit-and-run attack by China in 1962 conflict, the CIA teamed up with the Indian Intelligence Bureau (IB) to install a Nuclear Device on Nanda Devi Mountain to monitor further detonations by China in Lop Nor, across the Himalayas.

Inclement weather during the installation mission forced the team involved in the expedition to hide the nuclear-powered device in a ledge around 2000 feet below the installation point of the Nanda Devi Mountain. When the recovery team of Indian climbers was sent in October, 1966 to retrieve the equipment, it found them missing into the glaciers due to avalanche. The CIA and Indian intelligence maintained an eerie silence about the missing device until it was exposed by an American magazine on 12 April, 1978.

The then Prime Minister of India, Morarji Desai, briefed the Parliament on 17 April, 1978 about the missing device and appointed a committee of scientists to investigate this issue, In April, 1979, the scientists submitted their report but no action was taken on their recommendations.  

The author approached the Prime Minister’s office in September, 2015 and received some information from the Department of Atomic Energy about the precarious situation. He has examined all details of this mystery in this book.

RK Yadav

The author is a true nationalist with honesty of purpose as his driving force. His first book, “Mission R&AW”, was a bibliography of Intelligence history of India from its independence. Having served in Research & Analysis Wing (R&AW), the external intelligence of India, was not only a matter of prestige but it imbibed in him enough strength and courage to take on what any individual would shrink even to think. R&AW authorities booked a senior officer under Officials Secret Act for writing a book on some non-significant events of R&AW. In this scenario, the author wrote the book, “Mission R&AW”, and the R&AW authorities did not dare to take such action against the author. This book made other seniors courageous and some more books on R&AW were written thereafter.

The author is a regular on TV debates on various channels related to the security, defence and intelligence issues of India in particular and the World in general. He writes columns on these issues in prestigious publications. The author would strive hard to bring all subjects of human considerations in the public domains until he possesses such health and energy in his lifetime.
