The Tragic End

Bhabha was going to attend an international conference. He was on a mission of peace. The Air India Boeing 707 'Kanchenjunga' in which Bhabha was travelling, crashed in a snowstorm on January 24, 1966 at Mout Blanc. Bhabha thus met with a tragic end. He died comparatively young and at the height of his fame. It was a loss too deep for tears.
In the death of Dr. Bhabha India lost an eminent scientist and one of her great sons.

Bhabha had disliked the, practice of stopping work when some one passed away. He considered that the best homage was hard work. When the members of the staff at Trombay heard the news of Dr. Bhabha's death, they worked as usual and thus paid their respect to their departed leader.

As a tribute to Dr. Bhabha, the Atomic Energy Establishment, Trombay, was renamed as the Bhabha Atomic Research Center, on January 12, 1967.

The progress of mankind is based on the talents and achievements of a few
extraordinary individuals. Bhabha was one such a great man. Birth and death are laws of Nature. But life finds a new meaning in the great accomplishments and achievements of man. Bhabha was in many ways a complete man'.

"Here was a great man.

When comes such another?"
