Atomic researcher King Ramanna called for Kalam to see atomic testing.
She was married to late T. R. Ramanna in 1949, a sound engineer turned movie
director in Tamil movies.
On May 18, 1974, Dr Ramanna played a crucial role in making India's
first underground nuclear bomb explosion a reality.
According to him, Dr Ramanna had begun thinking about developing a nuclear
explosion even before the death of Dr Bhabha in 1966.
Angry and desperate, Saddam wanted Dr Ramanna to stay back and lead the country's nuclear programme to create
an Iraqi nuclear bomb.
In 1978, Prime Minister Desai transferred physicist Ramanna to Indian MoD,
and his government was not entirely without progress in nuclear program and had the program continue to grow at a desirable rate.
He recalled his friend Raja Ramanna, the Indian nuclear scientist sometimes known as the Indian Sakharov,
telling him that he had read in Nagarjuna's writings explanations that pre-empted quantum physics by almost 2000 years.
For example, Ramanna, who was a cowherd, has said in one of his vachanas that there were only two castes in' the
world: the caste of good people and the caste of bad people.
