Here is summery of my tweets before I read tweets of starnews and IBN7. tweets in revese order as it on tweeter
One new thing I noticed These days I get frustrating dull feeling in my head 20 -30 mins before Earthquakes strikes. now tense feel gone.
My location is near Chandigarh Mohali city,Punjab (30.713890, 76.712012)
I am working on PC haven’t tell anybody d guy next to me is unmoved logged into his Facebook no one has felt I think bt I did felt it strong

#EARTHQUAKE felt strong #SEISMIC pulse at around 17:04 Hrs IST (12:34 GMT/UTC) direction mid of West-North towards mid of South-East
When 8.9 magnitude struck Fukushima and when 6.5 magnitude earthquake struck Japan for the second time, the nights before those destructive Earthquakes, I was sleepless for whole night. This time there was sudden onset of frustration feeling with dullness in my mind approximately 20 minutes before Earthquake struck and I felt it quite strong while I looked at guy next to me totally unmoved and consumed into facebook chat.
Earthquake was felt in News rooms of TV news channels like IBN7 and StarTVnews etc. These guys might have been praying to their Cricket Gods whose name they chan like anything day-night. “Oh Dhoni, Oh Sachin, earthquake struck here. Please win another world cup and save us.” lol.
I think there should be debate program how these cricketer will save us in an event of any major calamity and who is going to take which avatar (responsibility).

In my previous post, I have written that, an Earthquake might strik India within a span of 12 hours, but there was none and we must thank god for this. The Seismic pulses I felt, were of a significant intensity ones and had a distinct direction. It was felt for a duration of more than 40 seconds and reoccurance was there with in 2 minutes. So everynight, I had prepred my emergency wallet, which comprises of cash, cellphone, credit/debit cards, anti inflamatory drug and some extra cloths nearby. In case of any earthquake, these are the minimum things I do consider important to grab along while rushing out to open space outside building area and I think everyone can follow this. A bottel of fresh potable water is also a must. I have been cheking with google news page for any news about earthgquakes in India within last 24 hours but found nothing listed there, so I asume there was none and I haven’t felt another seismic tremor since last I posted on twitter…All is well here.. Thank God!!
Yeah! that’s the weirdest title, I have ever written for a blog post. But its “the call of times” and in my avatara to generate socio-political sparks, I find it suitable to bring this thought to the minds and conscious of legislators. “Legislation to counter Innovative Technology”. I must clarify here, that am not against innovations or the phenomenon of Innovative technology, but I am of opinion that we should not just take it for granted that all the technology that comes under our purchasing power is gonna benefit our social structure and should be bought, imported or is licensed to do business. I just saw some videos about electronic cigarettes.
At first, I thought what a novel idea to help smokers quit smoking, but after watching a few videos more I realised that this gadget if became popular here in India, will bring drug abuse to a menacing level. Drug abuse and addiction has already became a major threat to social security in most parts of India. I think electronic cigarettes will become fashion in India in near future and even non smokers will be inclined to try the “Safer & Healthy” labeled puffing gadget. That is why, I am initiating this this spark towards those who ink the book of legislative norms for our nation. There should now arise a need to formulate laws to govern electronic modes of intoxication.
Recently, I met a guy, who was holding B.Tech degree (Bechlore’s in echnology) and was applying for Customer Care job in local BPO company. I asked him why he was going for the BPO job, they offer no more than $150 a month and the job requires at least 9 hours of sitting work, 6 days a week. I asked him why didn’t he applied for Engineer’s post in some good company?
Most companies offer around 8000-10,000 per annum of salary package to Engineering graduate. He replied with sad looks on his face. He said, that he had been to a couple of interviews and jobs are being sold for 50% of the salary package associated with the post. He said one HR asked him to pay 1.5 lakh for job offer. He said he comes from poor family and couldn’t arrange money, but his friend was able to pay for that offer. His friend is now working at Rs.3 lakh ( $8000+ approx.) annual salary. I told him , its for the first time, I have heard such thing and its hard to believe that such is the picture of corruption among corporate world. My skepticism was cleared by a recent news on TV, about the HRs selling jobs in companies. People here in India can be heard saying, “From academic degrees to jobs, from office peon to state minister, everything sells in India. You just need money to buy them.” This is the state of corruption in India. One guy satirically said that’s why US or Australian colleges don’t value our degrees. One has to clear different test to prove your eligibility for entrance to education or getting jobs there.
