At arround 5 pm (IST), I did experienced some swinging jerks, but this time I ignored these, as I was not feeling well. Most of my family membes are suffering with viral cough and I was in fever yesterday, that is why, I just ignored it.
The big question of concern is the short frequency with which Earthquakes are shaking different parts of Earth and I know the major cause of it. Is it mendable? I don’t know, but we can curb our activity atleast… Untill the world listen…….. its of no value….
The devastation shown in 2012 movie, now seems having very much a likelyhood of turning into reality…… while we see everything sorrounding us is normal, it is just a matter of chance that it will struck everywhere… It is now evident the earthquakes are now occuring near equater and in more in lower half of globe……..
