We are hit hard (again and again)

On, 25 April 2015, 11.56am local time (GMT+5.45) powerful earthquake of magnitude 7.9 Richter scale, lasted almost a minute, struck Nepal, with epicenter nearby ancient capital Gorkha and devastating Gorkha itself, Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Lalitpur, Sindhupalchok, Kavrepalanchok, Nuwakot, Dhading are some of the severely affected areas.

Several tremors and aftershocks have continued to follow the next 24 hours and nearly 25 hours later, another aftershock of nearly 6.7 Richter scale struck which added further damage to the devastation.

My family and we are safe and alive and our building has remained intact during all these tremors. Many people’s houses have cracked and people fearful of aftershocks are sheltering in the tents outside the house. The food and water supply are limited and many national international volunteering/support organizations have helped the needy ones so far.

If anyone reading this requires help and is in Nepal, please call “1234” from any telephone line in Nepal and you will be provided with help.

If you are someone willing to help people of Nepal at this crisis, please do so through the reliable people you know or directly through international aid organization such as Red Cross, World Food Program (WFP), UNICEF or similar trusted organizations.

The villages are most affected by the earthquake and if possible call people you know in those villages or try to communicate with them and let other people know (like us), if the survivors have reported they need help.

I would also like to thank all our friends, well wishers and relatives abroad who have been with us through this crisis and ready to help us anytime in need. We are always thankful to you.

UPDATE: (12th May 2015) After several aftershocks and repeated tremors and people returning to normal ways, another powerful earthquake of 7.3 Richter, on 12th May afternoon, shook Kathmandu with epicenter near Dolakha district. While it caused signifacant damages in Charikot and Dolakha districts and only few casaulties elsewhere, people’s lives have been disrupt and many people are again taking shelter in the tents and mostly in open spaces. People don’t know how long this will last and what damages are underway. Panic mode is again activated and it takes a long before we are able to return to normal lives. For now, most of the people daily schedule is to get up, eat, be scared, listen and ignore rumours, eat and go to bed and stay alert and try to be safe.

Adrenaline Ride with Brad Pitt

Well, it’s not the kind of typical dreams at night. It is just a while ago, before I grabbed my phone to put it down in words, I’m just too lazy and tired to get up from the bed and its one of those late morning sleeps on the weekends.

Before I waste my time on something else, I’m heading straight to the point. I was with Brad Pitt. Yes, if you read it, I was with one of Hollywood’s sensations. There was this superstar with a bunch of other people, with me. It was in a boat where we were in the middle of the lake or river, I realised the river currents and splashes of water while I was there.

Bradd Pitt was eating so was everyone else, I can’t remember the exact food, I’m sure it wasn’t the MoMos.

I looked around and thought of Angelina Jolie. There were people who looked like Brad’s friends, secretary and guards but not Jolie. I thought he must have been vacationing alone. I didnt know how I ended up being there and what I was doing. I was a fellow enjoying the show with Brad Pitt and it was no time for me to think what I was really doing. May be a ‘guide’ to the tourist Brad or the tour operator or something else, I don’t bother to think. I contemplated that I was with Brad Pitt.
