Since last 14-15 days, I have been frequently experiencing Seismic waves of moderate intensity. Checkout my tweets. Mostly the direction of these seismic waves is from West (40 degrees in North) towards South (20 degrees in East). The previous 6th Sense Seismic logs resulted in Arkansas and Oklahoma (USA) Earthquakes. This frequent occurrence of seismic tremors makes me believe that a major Earthquake is knocking at us and it is going to be in Northern West of globe (w.r.t 30.713890, 76.712012). May be Iran, Italy or western Russia? Or Hindukush in Afghanstan and Kashmir in India? With recent earthquake in Oklahoma, USA there could be re-occurrence of earthquakes in California and Oklahoma.

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……..
