Pokhran Tests of 1998

15 years ago on 11th may 1998 India conducted five nuclear tests to show its nuclear supremacy in the subcontinent (although such test was conducted by Smt Indira Gandhi earlier in 70s ). They say it was an attempt to bring peace in the region as China and Pakistan won’t be a problem for us as we are now a nuclear power. This was an act to bring peace in the region by intimidating neighboring countries. But guess what was the outcome of such peace initiatives : Pakistan carried on six nuclear tests within few days of our nuclear tests and within one year we had to face the “Kargil War”.
