Mother Earth’s revenge: Lahore jolted again

Yesterday it shook us all living in central and upper parts of the country and today wasn’t a relief either.

At about 4:20 AM this morning, a rather medium-wave earthquake shook Northern Areas, Peshawar, Islamabad and Lahore. Today’s quake, as I felt it, was a bit stronger than yesterday’s 5.9 richter scale tremor but then I am sitting on wheels and can’t confirm the intensity by observing a chandelier’s swing.

We will still have to tune in to our evil-box media who kept bragging about ‘A Strong Earthquake has shaken Pakistan’ throughout early yesterday morning and were doing the same about an hour ago; reminiscing negative vibes of the dreadful Oct, 2005 quake when it wasn’t true or confirmed.

God bless their obsession with sensation!

Coming back to the quake, whatsoever was its intensity; it was scary. We were not used to so much frequent ground-shakers until something bad happened deep inside earth’s core or people’s hearts in this part of the world…

Who knows Mother Earth is giving back to us what we are doing to it in terms of maligning her face by spreading anarchy and disrespecting her spirit and beauty with pollution, deforestation, and by killing her innocent sons and daughters through terrorism and war on (t)errorism waghaira waghaira…

Earthquake in Lahore

We just experienced a strong earthquake in Lahore and Islamabad¬† 10 minutes ago (1:30AM approx.) that is being reported to have a 5.9 magnitude. The news was almost instantaneous on twitter though we are still waiting for the ‘old media’ to provide more information. We hope everyone is safe and sound (asleep).
