On Saturday i.e 25th April 2015 , the world woke up to the news of severe earthquake ravaging the Himalayan kingdom , Nepal. The media , both print and electronic was full with the news of people loosing their kith and kin , images of people crying . buildings falling like pack of cards .The damage was devastating and several historical sites in Nepal were merely reduced to rubles. The earthquake was not limited to Nepal but tremors were felt in Indian subcontinent also in the adjoining states of Bihar , Jharkhand and parts of West Bengal.
Till now 10,000 people are believed to have been lost in this natural catastrophe and that is just an official number . The actual number would be much higher and there are countless people who have lost their near and dear ones , their homes and belongings . Can we imagine a child stranded in this world with nothing to look up ? Can there be more scary picture than this ? A old women loosing everything and all around she sees is misery , a fight for survival , a fight for basic amenities ?
The calamities of such magnitude reconfirms how miniscule we are in front of nature’s fury. And when nature lashes its anger , many get crushed in just few moments . And that’s the reason we should protect nature and not misuse it for our greed and wants. The Himalayan kingdom sits on the belt where the indo-australian plate pushes the Eurasian plate and geographically its one of the most volatile reason . Their collision itself gave birth to the Himalayan region. But rampant deforestation , construction and misuse of natural resources definitely adds to it.
But in spite of all this , the human spirit survives despite all odds.And there are pictures of four month child rescued under the debris . People and Army risking their lives to save the people stranded in the middle of nothing and left with no food , water or shelter.This just give hope that life continues and the human spirit cannot be curtailed by even the most grim situations.There are people and organizations pitching to help people who are left with nothing to survive in the most treacherous situation . Here I have compiled a list for the organizations who are doing their bit to help people in Nepal to survive the extreme conditions .
Here is the list published by BBC to donate for the rebuilding of Nepal and help people to survive this extreme condition . Please do your bit , they need our help.
Another easy way is also to donate through facebook and there are some reputed organizations who are organizing drive for collecting food packets, cup noodles , soup packets, clothes and medicines in every city. I urge you to help , a small step will go a long way to help the survivors in this difficult times. After all we are the children of the same god and in the difficult times every help counts.
