An old man walks past 10 year old Nawab Mian, (who is suffering from mental illness related to the 1984 Bhopal gas disaster) as he stands outside his house in New Arif Nagar  near the site of the deserted Union Carbide factory in Bhopal, India. Nawab Mian couldn't walk for 8 years but after regular phsiotheraphym, he has started walking since last 2 years. Twenty-five years after an explosion causing a mass gas leak, in the Union Carbide factory in Bhopal, killed at least eight thousand people, toxic material from the 'biggest industrial disaster in history' continues to affect Bhopalis. A new generation is growing up sick, disabled and struggling for justice. The effects of the disaster on the health of generations to come, both through genetics, transferred from gas victims to their children and through the ongoing severe contamination, caused by the Union Carbide factory, has only started to develop visible forms recently.
