Nepal, You Will Stand Tall Again!

Nepal has been enchantingly beautiful not only for its scenery or the presence of the mighty Himalayas.

The people are childlike and yet happy even with the hardship that nature has conferred upon them.

Nepal holds a very vibrant and hardworking youth force that wants to cut up their own status with their tough work.

I experienced a fortune to be in this beautiful land with its beautiful people and was tickled by their cosmopolitan lifestyle, artistic production, culture and traditional patterns. I had been to many distant corners of the nation and found more the remotest the simplest was the modus Vivendi of the masses.

Although the sword of a massive earthquake always hung above Nepal’s head it was never possible to judge when it would occur? Scientists thought after the 1934 great earthquake, another earthquake of great magnitude was inevitable.

Geophysicists have monitored many times. The Earth’s plates are moving fast. The entire Indian subcontinent is being driven slowly but steadily northwards underneath Nepal and Tibet at a speed of around 1.8 inches every year.

There was a shock on the evening of 17 September 2011. The epicenter was in Sikkim and Kathmandu was unharmed.

The massive earthquake measuring 7.8 on 25 April, 2015 shook Kathmandu to the core. And it was followed by another aftershock on Sunday. More than 3500 people are dead and 6500 injured. The figure may go up as rescue teams start to reach the remote areas.

USA Today said. “The quake will likely put a huge strain on the resources of Nepal, a poor country best known for Everest. The nation is highly dependent on tourism. Numerous countries around the world have pledged immediate aid and supplies. Humanitarian groups such as the Red Cross, Oxfam, CARE and Save the Children, are working to provide shelter, clean water, sanitation and emergency food supplies.”

Sometimes you get knocked down only to stand up taller than you have ever been. Hope Nepal recovers from this natures wrath quickly and is rearward to its track of evolution.

  1. Yes, they will stand tall again. And it’s a remarkable thing when people can shove aside their differences for a while and work together to help each other. (It’s too bad they often forget that feeling once the moment of crisis has passed, and the drudgery of never-ending rebuilding sets in.) Nepal will thrive, eventually. Right now, it’s sad to see the dead, the hurt, the hungry, and the cultural landmarks destroyed. But their spirit will recover, and they will rebuild.

    I pray for these people on a regular basis! I hope that they truly bounce back much stronger than they were before.
