The Internet can be a strange place. In the wake of several tourists visiting Chernobyl and taking selfies at the attack site (that killed around 9000 people in 1986) enthused by the release of the five-part-series (on Hotstar) that had dealt with the aftermath of the incident, the show writer Craig Mazin has requested crowds to be respectful for the dead.
A few tourists had been visiting Ukraine and have been taking selfies at the power plant where the attack had occurred. “Comport yourselves with respect for all who suffered and sacrificed,” the writer had shared on his Twitter handle. Craig added though it’s wonderful to notice a wave of people heading to the site, he’s suggested people recollect, “that a terrible tragedy occurred there”.
Instagram, Facebook and Twitter have been full of instances with people sharing their images at the attack site. The popularity of the show has been such that it has opened up new tourism avenues to the country. The world is full of infinite possibilities and this is indeed proof of it!
