What  are  those  colorful  things  around  the  monument ?

356

This  is  the  memorial  to  Sadako  Sasaki , a  victim  of  the  atom  bomb  dropped  in  Hiroshima . Sadako  developed  Leukaemia  soon  after  and  was  hospitalised . One  of  her  friends  visited  her  in  the  hospital  and  presented  her  with  a  paper  crane . Inspired  by  this , Sadako  started  making  paper  cranes  herself  spurred  on  by  the  Japanese  saying  that  one  who  folded  1,000 cranes  was  granted  a  wish . However , she  died  soon  after  and  the  monument  featured  above  was  erected  in  honour  of  the  lil  girl  and  all  other  kids  who  fell  victim  to  the  bomb . Everyday , the  monument  receives  hundreds  of  visitors  who  leave  behind  paper  cranes ( the  colourful  things  in  pic ) as  a  tribute  to  her .

Cracked  by  Rithwik , Arun  and  Jimdan  Simham . Super  job !
