My 3 earthquake Experiences

My 3 earthquake Experiences

1. Guwahati: When my family visited the Darjiling, we passed through Guwahati, in 1996. We experienced the earthquake. Every one near us started running. My family was in the premises gate hence did not panic but the people inside started ruining haywire.
I kept my self safe near the pillar of the building first and when I saw people panicking I just said to them take shelter near pillar or go out of the door and stand on the ground but away from building.
2. Guwahati: Same on next day.
3. Nagpur: I was seating on the sofa, relaxing and watching the Indian Republic Day (R.D.) Parade on 26 January. Suddenly at 10:30 a.m. my Sofa moved from right side of the hall to left side of the hall. Glasses were intact everything was intact except sides and corners got broken just few millimeters.
However, this one movement at Nagpur was enough to tell me what should be the impact in the Bhuj and the epicenter at Anjar, in Gujarat, when I changed to other Television channel and watched the News.
Most importantly, when I re-shuffled to DD1, suddenly, I saw one thing on the TV, that, one of the guard ran towards Honourable Prime Minster in the middle of Republic Day Parade and told something to Honorable Atal Behari Bajapeyi. Later he confirmed that (Hon. P.M.) was the bad news about the Quake. God bless the souls.
It is sure if Nagpur at 2000 km can get the jolt imagine the damage that might have done in Gujarat.
Nature and God have their own ways of peace and hit. We have to bow before them.
