This is how kalimati bazzar at Gorkha shook that fateful day April 25 2015.... an EQ of 7.9- 8.1 RS, the trauma always remains, but the life has to go on... We all shall learn to live with the memory slowly I feel.... !
This footage has been borrowed from youtube, I took the liberty to translate the clip in English with a little bit of description about the place and the situations. It was the darkest day after nearly 80 years. It shall take years to rebuild, the death toll has already crossed 10,000 with 500,000 house destroyed, and 8 million people affected. The clip of this video shows area very close to the epicenter at Burpak, which is almost flattened. Other areas in away from this center form this place at Dolkha, Sindupalchowk, Langtang has been simply wiped out from the map and few houses in Kathmandu Valley has collapsed, but the houses in Gongabu, Balaju, Ramkot, Sankhu has been severely affected This day wiped out our precious heritage in matter of seconds in Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur Durbar Squares. affected.
This Clip shoes an intersection at of a Kalimati Bazzar at Gorkha town, very close to the center, not more than 20km Arial distance one of the busiest place. The day was Saturday around noon thus the footfall was not quite dense. I am putting a part of the clip around 60 seconds to remind everyone, how the earth shakes when it becomes as large as 7,9-8.1 RS.
The quake was so very powerful my feet still trembles nearly a month later. We had more than six shakes of plus 6 RS magnitude in a period of two weeks and one 7.4 RS of May 12 literally petrified everyone in the country affected by quake.
Hope The God becomes merciful to all of us of us here in Nepal… ! We have been shattered like anything, Hope it cools down and we begin a normal life soon.
