Ironic Karma

Smiling Buddha was the assigned code name of India's first nuclear weapon explosion on 18 May 1974. The device was detonated on the army base Rajasthan Pokhran Test Range by the Indian Army under the supervision of several key Indian army personnel.

Perhaps this was to balance out J. Robert Oppenheimer's reference to Shiva the Destroyer at the Trinity test in 1945.

Perhaps it was an ironic karma.
