A Weekend Turned Wicked.

Hello Everyone!!!

I never mentioned where I am from. I am from Nepal where 7.9 richter earthquake just struck us. Here is my story.

25th April 2015 was a normal Saturday until it wasn't. I was blogging and commenting on your lovely blogs when suddenly my computer monitor started to shake. It just took me few seconds to realize that we just got hit by earthquake. One moment I was all happy and smiling and the next moment I was running for my life. Me and my family Somehow managed to run to safe side of our home.  The house was still shaking and felt like forever. It just won't stop.  I was very near to have a panic attack. We heard people scream "earthquake" and running out from their homes towards the street. When we thought the worst is over the ground started to  shake again. Thats when we realize the nightmare isnt over. We had constant big aftershocks over and over again in matter of few minutes. We were scared to death. Never in my life I ever had such near to death experience.
When things felt little normal we contacted all the people and felt a little relieved to know that eveyone in our family circle were safe and sound. We listened to news and came to know we were struck by 7.9 richter scale. One of the biggest earth quake so far.
The ground shook us from deep within our hearts.The debris of body and architecture rained down in our nation. The day got ruined when a massive earth quake hit the entire nation with its epicenter being Barpak. The day never seemed to end.  Every second felt like a year and every breath felt like a blessing.  We're drenched  In fear, hoping and praying for nothing but for everything to return to normal. This was the moment I truly wished that fairy tale was true. I hope that with a flick of a wand I could do something, anything! The after shock never went away leaving  us with no option but for the fear to overtake us.
Sleepless night and endless fear gripped us. "Anticipation" as my sister phrased it was our greatest fear and enemy.
No network, no communication and no electricity supply. That  is how we survived. Every motion,  every movement made our heart skip a beat. Our minds were accustomed even to a small tremor and the movement of our legs were spidery.The foods wouldn't go down our throats, every bite was tasteless,  every chew a loss of energy.We were living our nightmare. We lived that day in complete apprehension.
As long as the day felt, the night never seemed to end. The fear taunting us, we were utterly helpless.The unseen became seen and unnoticed became noticed.
The night sky seemed so peaceful, so calm.The stars twinkling,  the moon shining bright, spreading its warm light over all the people staring at it from below the earth.We all were staring into the heaven through the chaos of hell.
As much as the information was important and the news was the only authentic source, each discovery of devastation and disaster pierced us. The stark reality dawned on us. "The economy was in deep recession".
Our shrines and historical monuments were dilapidated and desecrated. We all were numb and despondent. The eaves of the historic buildings fell upon the ground and the gloom was not just a passing shadow. The delirium never went away, we all were nothing but deranged.  Our only solace was to know that our loved ones were safe. Each person passed through the same excruciating and overwhelming experience. Saturday which was supposed to be exuberant turned into a frantic cry for help. 
Almost a week has elapsed and still we reside in fear. the small tremor seems like a huge shockwave. Every step we take towards our home, our heart beats 10 times faster. The delirium hasn't yet passed. The heart wrenching incident seems like it just happened yesterday and our legs were shaking and our mind was unable to process what was happening. The people of entire nation is affected, The entire nation is crestfallen, they all are grieving and mourning. As many people lost their shelter and along with it theier econimic security. They are entangled in this huge mess and they seem to have give up hope that everything will ever be alright. They jolly day turned into a disaster. Many innocent lives were lost. Sometimes I get lost in my own thoughts, replaying whatever has happened in the past few days and what is left to happen. The people may have started that day fresh with new hopes and new plans never knowing that their happiness and their smiles was for only few hours, never knowing that they will never see thier family again, never taste the bitterness and happiness of life , never moan about the smallest thing, never wake up to see the lights.
The goverenment is making every effort and doing whatever they can. But still, "is it the BEST they can do?"
The nation is deeply wounded. The history that made us proud got crushed in one shake and turned to nothing. We were once the people with thousand dreams and now we are the people whose first instinct is just to survive.

R.I.P TO ALL THOSE INNOCENT LIVES LOST. Our deepest sympathies go out to all those suffered family. May God give you the comfort and peace that you seek and may the soul of your loved one rest in peace.
Not losing hope right now is the most important thing."Sometimes hope is the only thing that keeps you moving on."

STAY STRONG
PRAY FOR NEPAL _/\_

  1. Oh my God... You must have been scared and you still are...
    I live in an area where there are many mines. When I was a child, there was a sudden earthquake and a wardrobe was suddenly lying on me. Nothing happened except a few wounds, fortunately.
    I hope you are safe!
