This mobile application can be used as a tool to educate the general public that we live in a radioactive world, and radiation has always been all around us as a part of our natural environment. It will be shown that the amount of radiation that we receive from a nuclear power plant is much less than the amount of radiation dosage that we receive as a result of cosmic radiation, presence of radon in air etc. This will help in reducing irrational fear of nuclear radiation to some extent in the minds of Indian public. It is planned to do radiation dosage calculation based on US-NRC at: https://www.nrc.gov/about-nrc/radiation/around-us/calculator.html and later on tweak/use the figures provided by BARC/AERB.
