Finally, the bomb was prepared. The site chosen for the test explosion was the desert region, two hundred miles from Los Alamos. Ten seconds before zero hour a green flare warned the spectators to keep down. Then, came the blinding flash. The entire area was suddenly brighter than the brightest daylight and the bomb was like a ball of fire. Then, came the tremendous roar and the heavy pressure wave, which knocked down two men outside the control Centre and then came the cloud-the mushroom cloud, all the colours of the rainbow, ironically beautiful, surging up to our 40000 feet over 10000 feet higher than the Everest.

In case of zamindari system, the landlord was considered as the ultimate owner of the land. He was responsible for the payment of land revenue to the government, which had been settled once for all under the Permanent Settlement System. The zamindari system manifested absentee landlordism at its worst and was largely responsible for the continuously deteriorating conditions of tenant farmers. The landlords became merely rent-receivers and did nothing for increasing the productivity of land held by their tenants. The pressure of population led to a gradual extension of cultivation and a greater demand for land. As a result, a large army of intermediaries between the state and the actual tiller cropped up. This also made it possible for the landlords to extort high rents from tenants. All that it amounted to was the exploitation and moral degradation of the tiller.
Immediately after independence, a strong voice was raised against these vested interests in land. As a result, more importance was given to the abolition of the zamindari system. Accordingly, every state enacted its own legislation for the abolition of intermediary interests. By 1952, the necessary legislation had been enacted in all the states.
