7-year old girl Poonam

Poonam, 6, is revelling in the heavy monsoon rain in Oriya Basti, one of the water-contaminated colonies near the abandoned Union Carbide (now DOW Chemical) industrial complex in Bhopal, central India, site of the infamous ‘1984 Gas Disaster’. When the monsoon rain falls every year, it seeps through the buried, hazardous waste of Union Carbide, before proceeding to pollute the area’s underground water reservoirs.
