During an Amnesty International-sponsored trip to represent the people of Bhopal in Washington DC, Verma last week visited the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health for a panel discussion and screening of the recently released film, “Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain.” 

Starring Martin Sheen, Mischa Barton, Kal Penn and a powerful ensemble cast, Bhopal A Prayer For Rain is an epic ‘whodunnit’ that exposes the shocking events that led to the biggest man-made industrial disaster in history, in which as many as 10,000 people were killed in one night and for those who did survive, the tragedy had just begun.

In lieu of tickets, attendees were encouraged to make a donation to the Bhopal Medical AppealThe screening and talk, which took place on January 31st, managed to raise over $7000 for the Bhopal Medical Appeal.

Sanjay was joined by BMA trustee, Tim Edwards, and both spoke at the event which was organised by Johns Hopkins University and Patsy Santosham, one of the  Executive Producers of Bhopal: A Prayer For Rain.

Our thanks go to Patsy Santosham for arranging the event.

Sanjay has shared his story in a recent article for The Hills Congress Blog
