In a way, even the 1974 test may have had a political purpose since it boosted then prime minister Indira Gandhi’s image, which had declined sharply after her widely acclaimed role in the liberation of Bangladesh in 1971.
Similarly, when she felt her political stock declining again in the early 1980s, she is believed to have decided on conducting a nuclear test in 1983, for which then defence minister R Venkataraman (who later became president) surveyed the testing site in Rajasthan.

Unfortunately, in India, these factors are not properly recognized and the tendency is to adopt a `conveyer belt' approach to abortion services and research.
