What a terrible, terrible incident took place on 11th of March, 2011. If there is one country which can withstand earthquakes then it must be Japan. Infact the very word tsunami is Japanese meaning ‘harbour wave’. Japan is a country which faces earthquake once in every 5 minutes. Infact even in schools the students are trained what to do in case there is an earthquake. But what happened last week is the worst that the country has faced so far. The Japanese PM has cited it to be the worst incident since the Second World War.
Because of nature’s wrath, such horrendous incidents are becoming regular in all parts of the world. This year supposedly has brought the heaviest snowfall ever in the European countries. And now the triple whammy of earthquake, followed by tsunami and meltdown at nuclear reactors have estimatedly killed thousands while more than a million has been left without food and water. The insurance companies have predicted it to be the costliest with insured lossed running into as much as 35 billion USD, without considering the loss caused by the tsunami.
The fear of what’s next is really scary. Japan has changed geologically and economically and will take long time to get back to normal. But we have obstructed the ways of nature in too many ways for the sake of development for far too long a time. And now with each stoke, the nature is taking us years back from where it would take a lot of effort to come back. Its better that we start getting sensible, else who knows what we might see in this life only…
Will catch u soon again..till then God bless us
