Relic of War - The Tank on Tank Bund

“A day will come when a cannon will be exhibited in museums, just as instruments of torture are now, and the people will be astonished that such a thing could have been.” (Victor Hugo)

M-47 Patton on display at the famous 'Tank Bund' in Hyderabad.

I live very close to Tank Bund road in Hyderabad. Usually I pass through the Rotary Park spot where this machine has been put onto display. I correlate such type of structures as an exoskeleton with a weapon mounted on it. Man-made, used to kill the mankind. I has been a significant contributor to the damage caused during War. These machines are witness to the happenings that one never would like to see.

On asking, a Pentagon official, why the U.S. military censored graphic footage from the Gulf War, replied “If we let people see that kind of thing, there would never again be any war.”
