“It’s not enough to say, we must not wage a war, it is necessary to love peace and sacrifice for it.”
These words by Martin Luther King undoubtedly provoke each individual to think that mankind must put an end to war or else war would put an end to mankind. To promote peace and harmony, RKS observed HIROSHIMA DAY on August 6, 2020 by organizing a Speech, through virtual platforms.

Highlighting America’s decision to use two atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of World War II, the speaker underlined in her speech that the incident shook the world and brought into light the terrible aftereffects of nuclear warfare.
