A New Year Revisting History

If I were granted the extraordinary opportunity to visit any New Year in history and experience an event, I would choose the transition from 1930 to 1940, the period of World War II. This pivotal moment in history had many good and bad consequences. So, I would trigger the bad consequences and stop the out breaking of World War II as it leaded to immense damage to economy, geopolitical conditions, property. I would try or rather eliminate dictatorship on countries like Germany. But there was an event called Cold War between Russia and America which was a good circumstance if you look through my perspective.

When we talk about World War II, we always talk about Adolf Hitler, Nazis, Germany and USSR. We don’t talk about the Cold War between USA and Russia which happened when the World War II had started to decline.

This Cold war was a period of geopolitical tension between Russia and United Nations which included space race, economic growth and military development. The main reasons for the cold war was disagreements over Germany, ideological differences, nuclear arms race and Soviet Union.

I would also stop the bombardment of Hiroshima and Nagasaki done by America to Japan. Even today, babies born are abnormal due to the radiation effect of Little Boy and Fat Man which were the names of the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki respectively. Even the shadows of the people trying to escape the bomb are imprinted on the ground.

Today, I cannot even imagine the level of destruction which occurred during the period of World War II. I just want to make this world a better place as Mahatma Gandhi once said, ‘There is the divine in every atom of the world ———- whether animate or inanimate, living or non-living. True coexistence is living in peace and harmony with every single entity on this earth, animate or inanimate.
