Deadly missile

This news report says: “India on Monday morning successfully test fired one of its most sophisticated missiles, Prithvi II, from Chandipur in Orissa’s Balasore district. The 4.6 tonne missile can carry both conventional as well as nuclear warheads weighing between 500 to 1000 kg and has the ability to hit a target at a distance of 350 km.”

As there is nothing to the east of Chandipur, except the open seas, I carefully examined the map of India to identify cities/towns that could fall within the 350-km striking range of Prithivi-II. I am afraid that Kolkata, Jamshedpur, Rourkela, Bhubaneshwar, Cuttack and Puri are all potential targets that face the grave risk of being nuked out of existence. Let it not be said that they were not warned.
