Atal Bihari Vajpayee on Pokhran Test
On 18 May 1974, India exploded its first nuclear device in an operation code named Smiling Buddha (Pokhran-I). After about a quarter century, on 11 May 1998, Operation Shakti (Pokhran-II) was carried out; Shakti was the codename for the nuclear devices that were detonated. The term Shakti (Hindi: शक्ति) refers to the cosmic energy of Hinduism.
