Atomic Juggernaut

Top of page

In India they call it Anushkati--the atomic juggernaut--a modern miracle brought from Canada to light an entire region. This film shows the strange procession made by the calandria, the heart of a nuclear reactor, hauled by huge diesel tractors from the seaport to the proposed site along a roadway specially prepared beforehand. Everywhere the juggernaut passed, ancient life stopped for a moment to witness the arrival of this new deity.
