Red Panda Was Found in Nepal

Extinct red pandas have been found in Jajarkot district of Nepal. Two red pandas had been isolated from the group which was returned to the jungle by the district forest office.

Red panda is an amazing animal. It is a straight animal which does not run away from people. Kantipur reports that dozens of red pandas have been hunted in the area.

What Scientists Say about Existence of God?

Does God exist or not? This is one of the most frequently asked questions in human history. As majority of the people in the world believe on the arguments of scientists, I have collected the concepts of different scientists.

Stephen Hawking: Hawking has declared himself as an atheist. However he believes that the universe is governed by the laws of science. Those laws might have been made by God. But God does not intervene the laws made by him.

Albert Einstein: Einstein was neither atheist nor theist. He called himself agnostic which means the one who thinks that the existence of God is unknown. He neither believes nor disbelieves on God as God is still unknown.

Isaac Newton: Newton believed that he was one of the men chosen by God to explain the secret of Bible about the end of the world. He believed that there is no doubt, hand of God to create the universe.

Peter Higgs: Peter Higgs who got novel prize on Physics in 2013 for the discovery of Higgs Boson {God Particle} is an atheist. So he is displeased for Higgs Boson is nicknamed God Particle.

In this way we can find scientists divided into three groups regarding the belief of God. They are theist, atheist and agnostic.

Fear of God

GOD, a word even an atheist takes when he or she is afraid.  But there is a community in Nepal which is getting scared with God from the time unrecorded. Those people live at Ruza village of Rawatkot in Dailekh district.

There are about 37 houses in the small area of Ruza village. This village is one of the inaccessible places of Nepal. This small area is so congested that there is no place remained even for making a toilet. However, people do not migrate from here. Because they think that if they migrate, their God will get angry with them.  The village dwellers are the follower of Masto God from the time immemorial. They worship Masto God in Dashain and Tihar notably. Mr. Prakash Adhikari writes in Kantipur Daily.

Earthquake Alert Message by Don Prince

The day before yesterday at 10:15 PM in Kathmandu, I was about to sleep, a 4.6 MS suddenly stroke with breath taking tremor and highly alerting sound. Just for a while I forgot that it could be only a momentary aftershock. But I did not panic. Nor did anyone in my family run away. I suggested everyone that there was nothing to get afraid. It was just an aftershock which was a bit stronger. I also said that the epicenter must have been inside the city. So it felt strongly. Then all of us slept calmly. But in the morning I came to know that some people in the city had spent whole night out of the house getting scared with this aftershock. So I decided to write this article to convey my important message to them so that they do not face such problem next time.

There are 3 reasons I  guaranteed it was a normal jolt having epicenter in Kathmandu:

1. It felt strongly
As aftershock is felt stronger near the epicenter, this strongly felt jolt gave a hint that it must be around the city. It was taken seriously by media and public in Kathmandu. But there was nothing special to highlight. By the way aftershocks of around 4.6 were going on continuously in other parts of the rupture area. However this aftershock terrorized people in Kathmandu. Because its epicenter was inside Kathmandu.

2. It gave experience of sound
We do not hear the sound of earthquake itself but we hear the sound of physical things on the earth which are moved by earthquake. Big earthquake gives sound experience everywhere. But small aftershock can make us hear sound only if we are near the epicenter because small aftershock is stronger near the epicenter only. And it is weaker in the places far from the epicenter. As the aftershock gave sound experience, chances were high that it was in or near the city.

3. Time was too short
If it had been an independent earthquake, it could have lasted for longer time. But it was for a short time. Similarly it slowed down exponentially and gave experience of descending shaking for more time which is the strong evidence that aftershock began and ended inside the city.

The day before yesterday's aftershock was not a surprising attack for me. In fact, I was waiting for a 4.9 MS to match my self developed statistic which I am going to release after aftershocks completely stop in Nepal. According to my unexposed theory, an aftershock of around 4.9 is still inevitable in near future. If it does not happen, the upcoming aftershock will not exceed 4.6. And it will modify my upcoming law, i.e. ''Prince's Law of Aftershocks''.

So, I, through this article, want to spread the message that unlike day before yesterday, there is high chance that an aftershock of around 4.9 MS or 4.4 MS is going to strike Nepal in near future which is not dangerous. People far from the epicenter may not feel it but it can terrorize the people nearby the epicenter. If you experience it, do not run away blindly inviting unwanted accident. Stay inside till you confirm that it is not a small aftershock but an independent earthquake of other part of Nepal or another strong aftershock. And you can do it by waiting at least 5 seconds inside the house. At last, I am happy to pour my opinion that the aftershocks of Nepal are settling exponentially day by day.

Please share this message with your friends, relatives and followers.

Is Volcano Possible in Nepal?

When fear and ignorance rent on mind, rumour becomes a guest for a long time. Nepal experienced it in past few months. It was natural that people believed the rumours of earthquake predictions. Because earthquake was hitting Nepal from the time immemorial. And people had stored less information about earthquake. But I wonder how easily people ran after the rumours of volcano in Nepal whereas there had never ever been event of any volcanic eruption in the past.

‘Can volcano erupt in Nepal?’ If you ask this question to anyone who has some knowledge of volcano, you will get answer something like this:
‘’No, volcano can not erupt in Nepal.’’

If you ask why volcano can not erupt in Nepal, you can get 2 types of answers:
1. because Nepal is a mountainous country
2. because there is no sea in Nepal

Both answers give same but complete meaning. However you need to know why volcano can not erupt in a mountainous country or in a country like Nepal which lacks sea.

According to Mr. Raj Maharjan, the science and environment teacher of Abhiyan Public School, Balaju, Kathmandu, volcano is not possible in and around Nepal because of the condition that Indian plate is over thrusting Eurasian plate. When two continental plates overlap, the originated volcano can not come out. It collapses on its way within the crust forming the igneous rock.

Nepal

Mr. Sudan Lamichhane, the science teacher of Blue Wren School, Kalanki, Kathmandu says that Volcano can erupt only in the country which is on the oceanic plates not in the country like Nepal where there is no sea at all. Volcano can occur above the subduction zone. Subduction zone is the zone where oceanic plate overlaps into continental plate. But Nepal does not lie above the subduction zone. So volcano is not possible in Nepal.

So what is conclusion? I think both arguments are acceptable and they support same concept. In my personal opinion, oceanic plate has less mass and continental plate has more mass. In subduction zone, being one continental plate and another oceanic plate, mass is thin and volcanic magma easily comes outside causing volcanic eruption. But if there are both continental plates overlapping, the mass are so thick that the volcanic magma can’t come outside and it cools down and hardens. As a result it forms unique type of rock, i.e., igneous rock. And there is no volcano above the crust.

At last I want to say that ‘Why is volcano not possible in Nepal?’ is a tough question. I did not find the answer of this question even in Google Search. So I created this post trying to find out the answer. The answers given above may or may not be right. I have published it in order to get review as well as start discussion among the intellectual community. If you agree with our findings please like or share this article. If you have different opinion, do not forget to comment below to share your knowledge.
Happy reading!

Why Nepal is Still Being Hit by Aftershocks

Aftershocks are forecast-able not predictable. This means that current science can't calculate exact time, magnitude and intensity of aftershocks. Nor can it say when it stops. However it's pretty simple to know how it stops.

Aftershocks in Nepal are still active. This is definitely surprising. It is because of the amazing nature of the mainshock. So there is no need to worry. They are normal. If this earthquake and aftershocks had not been of such nature, we would have faced much shaking during the mainshock and that could have been much devastating. Anyway we want to see these aftershocks stopped. So here rises the question how to know if aftershocks stopped?

Photo Credit: NSC
There are 3 conditionals to be fulfilled to confirm aftershocks stopped:
1. Aftershocks disappeared for longer time
It's pretty easy to say aftershocks stopped if there is no aftershock more than 4 M for longer time.

2. Earthquake occurred in other than the rupture zone
If aftershocks are not taking place for longer time and regular earthquake took place in other than the rupture zone, this is strong evidence to say that aftershocks have stopped.

But there is an important thing to remember that aftershocks can occur even nearby {a bit farther} the rupture zone due to the stress created by the ongoing aftershocks. So only the aftershocks very far from the rupture zone should be taken as an independent earthquake.

3. Aftershocks are absent after the independent earthquake
If aftershock stroke again after an independent earthquake, It is sad to say that this is not the end of the aftershocks. They should not appear again.

If those 3 levels are completed, we can believe that the earthquake sequence of Nepal has gone to the pre earthquake level and we won't be facing aftershocks later.

3 Things of Nepal Earthquake That Scientists Discovered are not Absolutely Right

Today I am going to write on 3 established concepts of scientists about Nepal earthquake which are not absolutely correct. These concepts have been further misunderstood by public which caused doubts and fears stay permanently on their mind. Let’s know the reality on time.

1. Nepal is an earthquake prone zone
Nepal has been enlisted in 11th number in the list of earthquake prone area of the world. Lying in the boundary between Indian and Eurasian plates, Nepal is said to fall under earthquake hazardous zones.

But the fact is different. According to the survey, 80% of earthquakes are recorded in the pacific ring of fire zone. 6% is recorded in Alaska. Nepal experiences less than 1% earthquakes of the world.

2. Mega Earthquake is inevitable in Nepal
Nepal, sometimes, is mistakenly believed to be vulnerable to the mega earthquake. Many reports have been published on it. But is mega earthquake really possible in Nepal?

First of all I want to clarify the actual meaning of mega earthquake. Earthquake more than 10 M is mega earthquake{don’t be confused with great earthquake which is more than 8 M}. So far there is no recorded history of mega earthquake in the world. Chile Earthquake 1960 was 9.5 M which is the largest earthquake ever recorded in the world. For the earthquake more than 10 M in Nepal, the fault in the crust should be bigger than the area of Nepal itself. Is it possible? Moreover, there is no more than 8 M {sometime said 8.2 M} earthquake in the recorded earthquake history of Nepal.

3. Earthquake can frequently strike Nepal
As Nepal is experiencing earthquakes time to time {eg. 6.6 in 1988 A.D. and 6.8 in 2011 A.D.}, there is misconception that earthquake can frequently strike Nepal.

I have already said in my previous article that after a big earthquake, it takes long time to accumulate huge energy. Another earthquake larger than 7.8 M {occurred this year} can strike only if this is not Great Earthquake with around the size of 8 M. As 7.8 M is near 8 M, Nepal should wait for another century for such type of huge earthquake.  Because there is about a century gap between 2 Great Earthquakes in the past. Similarly, there is notable time gap for earthquakes more than 6 and 7 M.

This article specially emphasizes that there should never be unnecessary fear of the earthquake that can affect the general life.

Science Behind 25 Rumours of Earthquake

Last week, in Kathmandu I noticed our street overcrowded. It reminded me the strong aftershock of 12 May. After a few seconds I understood a big aftershock had been felt by people which I could not feel as I was walking on strong pitch road. After some steps, I saw a man staying on the balcony of a house. He said to all the walkers on the street, ‘’This earthquake came with loud sound. It means bigger earthquake is coming.’’ When I arrived my house, a woman said at the gate, ‘’Today big earthquake came. So we are outside.’’ I guessed it was a small jolt having epicentre in Kathmandu. I came inside my room and switched on my laptop and checked the aftershock record online. It was only 4 M and the epicentre was in Kathmandu. I heard another voice outside, ‘’The epicentre is in Kathmandu. Now the earthquake is very close to us. This place is in danger.’’

I am surprised we are facing aftershocks for more than a month, but we are still confused with miner things about aftershocks. This aftershock is felt to be big only because epicentre was in the local area. If we make a call to the people of other districts and asked them about it, then most of people will definitely respond that they did not even feel it. Because they are far from the epicentre. Talking about the sound, our ear is not so much capable to hear the sound of wave emerged below the crust. I mean we can’t hear the sound of earthquake wave. The sound which we hear during earthquake or aftershock is the sound of the buildings and their properties on the earth due to the earthquake tremors. And even 4 M earthquake may give experience of sound near the epicentre because it is more powerful than in the other places far from the epicentre. So earthquake along with sound is not the siren of the next big earthquake.

Similarly having epicentre in Kathmandu does not necessarily mean that the city is vulnerable to a big quake. Aftershocks occur in and around the rupture zone. As being in the rupture zone it is obvious that places like Kathmandu, Dolakha, Nuwakot, Rasuwa, Sindhupalchowk, etc will experience aftershocks. It does not mean they will get another big shock. Aftershocks do not move as we think. Aftershocks happen when the stored energy reaches threshold.


After this incidence, I decided to list out and explain the rumours I heard during my offline visit in different places. I have also included the questions readers asked me online. They go like this:

1. USGS statistic predicts earthquake
Many people mistakenly believe that USGS predicts earthquake. Most of the time USGS analysis report is misinterpreted. It happened in its greatest level in Nepal. When USGS showed 0.03% chance for big tremor and 99.07% confidence not to experience large tremor, it was misinterpreted. And the common people also followed 0.03% rather than 99.07%.


The analysis of USGS is ‘forecasting’ based on statistic. Statistic is not accurate. Anything proven statistically or mathematically won’t be accurate. We can prove a cup of tea to be a glass of wine mathematically. That does not mean that you have taken wine instead of tea. And also, there is difference between forecasting and prediction. Forecasting is long term estimation whereas prediction is accurate with time, space and level. USGS itself says that it focuses on long term forecasting of earthquake rather than the short term earthquake prediction.

2. Some animals can give signal of the earthquake
Some people have reported that animals can predict the earthquake. According to them, these animals show amazing behaviours before earthquake. There are some instances in China and Japan. So, most of the Chinese and Japanese scientists believe on this theory.


So far there is no repeated record to prove animals can give signal of the earthquake so that caution can be applied in the future. Such types of animals’ behaviours are confusing. But it is true that they can hear P wave sooner than humans. As only p wave can move through the fluids below the crust, it arrives first. So animals feel it and show amazing behaviour with the fear of earthquake. Later humans feel the earthquake.

3. Ground can open during earthquake
Many people fear ground can open and swallow them during earthquake. Can it be?


If you fall into the hole made by earthquake, the chances are high that you will jump out of it. If ground opens to swallow, there won’t be possibility of earthquake.

4. Earthquake can not strike at night
People often remain scared at night during aftershocks. But some people say that earthquake does not take place between 12 to 4 am. People also believe that earthquake can happen especially in the morning time.


Yes, there are less earthquake events in the time between 12 to 4 am and also earthquake is recorded more in the morning time. But there are some instances where earthquake has occurred during night hours. Earthquake has also taken place in the day time. Nowadays, you may also notice aftershocks happening at night in Nepal. If you can prove that earthquake is more likely to happen in morning and it is rare at night, then you can be an established scientist.

5. There is special kind of weather before earthquake
Some people say earthquake can occur in special type of weather. They also believe that earthquake does not occur in the rain. There are also many theories which claim special type of weather before earthquake.


Earthquake has struck in any type of weather. Statistics says that there is no special type of weather for earthquake. It can happen in any weather situation. So far no one has proven there is special type of weather before earthquake. Nepal has experienced some aftershocks with rain as well as powerful wind.

6. Snakes come out of the ground before earthquake
Some people said that snakes are appearing in some places before the earthquake. So they believe that this is the sign that another big quake is coming. Ultimately they spread fear of earthquake depending on the appearance of snakes.


The actual reason is that snakes come out of the ground when aftershock takes place. They are coming out side not because earthquake is coming, but because earthquake has taken place.

7. Earthquake can return
Most of the people believe earthquake returns again. So they fear till they are escaped in another big quake. But the reality is different.


I think this concept has been started after the earthquake of 1934 in Nepal. I guess the earthquake of 1934 {1990 BS} had experienced stronger aftershock. So people believed earthquake returns. But that type of earthquake after long time interval is strong aftershock. As there is possibility of strong aftershock depending on the size of the earthquake, people have misconception that earthquake has returned.

8. The rose ground should settle to the same position as before by another earthquake
There is belief that when the ground rose due to earthquake there will be another earthquake to settle them. They also think the rose part must be settled.


Do we need another earthquake to settle mountains which rose due to earthquake years ago? Obviously not. And the stressed part below the crust settles, not the surface.

9. Independent earthquake in another zone during aftershocks is the symbol of another big quake
Many people believe if there is another independent earthquake very far from the rupture zone during aftershocks sequence, this is sign of another earthquake in another place.


Earthquake takes place several times in a year. The new independent earthquake is also usual, natural and normal.

10. Earthquake less than 4 M is not recorded
Some people say earthquake below 4 magnitude is not recorded. Because they don’t find it through media and in official websites.


Earthquake less than 4 magnitude is also recorded but they are not flashed in some countries like Nepal as they are not harmful and they can’t be felt too. 

11. If all animals are killed, there won’t be earthquake
There is belief that Einstein said in his theory if all animals are killed, there will never be earthquake. Is that true?


This is based on pain wave theory which is not created by Einstein. People think that this is created by Einstein. Because the name of this wave is EPW, i.e., Einstein’s Pain Wave. The theory says that when animals are killed, their pain goes inside the crust as wave and they cause stress in the rock and eventually earthquake. But it is not proven.

12. Animal can speak before earthquake
Some people have reported that they found animals speaking about earthquake. Villagers in Nuwakot of Nepal have said that some animals spoke and said that big earthquake is coming.


Yes, it is true animals speak before earthquake. They speak not only before earthquake. All of us know animals always speak but we don’t understand what they speak.

13. Planets alignment can affect earthquake
Sometimes there is belief that the alignment of planet can cause earthquake. This concept had serious effect in California.


There is no evidence to prove the effect of planets alignment on earthquake. May be, it affect earthquake, but that can’t be issued reliably to predict earthquake.

14. Aftershocks are the symbols of another earthquake
Some believe that there is chance of big earthquake till aftershocks disappear. So they are anxious till aftershocks are stopped.


Aftershocks are normal after a big quake more than 7 M. It may take days, months and sometimes years to stop. They continue till the stresses created by main earthquake on the rocks are settled. They don’t mean chance of another earthquake.

15. Only 40% energy is released by mainshock
There is often belief after a big earthquake that a huge percentage of energy is still remained which can trigger another bigger earthquake. Some people estimated it during Nepal Earthquake 2015. They believed that 60% energy is stilled stored that may cause bigger quake.


Bigger blast is in the beginning. Smaller blast happens with aftershocks. If there is 60% energy left, that may cause foreshock {see also}event. But it did not happen in Nepal. In the other hand, if it is confirmed that still 60% energy is left that can trigger earthquake very soon, government could evacuate the cities and scientists could create manual earthquake by inserting fluids under the ground to increase stresses in the crust so that there is blast before people enter their houses.

16. Earthquake is caused due to fish staying under the earth
This is old saying that earthquake is caused because the earth is on the fish. When fish moves, the earth starts shaking.


We have complete glance of earth from the space. There is no fish below the earth. A scientist has asked a question in the past, ‘If earth is on the fish, where is the fish on?’

17. Humans are the cause of earthquake
Many people believe humans are responsible for earthquake. They specially link it with global warming and environmental degradation.


Humans are not the cause of earthquake. Earthquake happens naturally below the crust which is far from the human activities. However some human activities like extreme mining, use of maximum fluids, etc can cause earthquake.

18. High magnitude earthquakes are always dangerous
People often fear with high magnitude earthquake but they may not prepare for smaller quakes.


Earthquake is dangerous based on its intensity not magnitude. It depends on time and deepness of earthquake. Even smaller quakes may be dangerous if it is shallow type. In the other hand sometimes even high magnitude earthquakes are less dangerous if it is deep type and it has short time of shaking. Besides, aftershocks are less dangerous.

19. Earthquake can be predicted by astrology
Astrology becomes hot after big earthquake. People estimate time and magnitude of another earthquake using the knowledge of astrology. Common people easily believe if anyone claims that there will be another big earthquake. And they get more scared.


Is there any incidence where anyone really came ahead of the earthquake day using astrology and saved the people? If there is any astrologer who can predict earthquake with exact time, location and magnitude, he/she can be the renowned scientist of the world.

20. Horizontal quakes are more dangerous
Considering the sideways movement of houses during earthquake, some people believe that horizontal quake is more dangerous than vertical quake.


Vertical quakes are more dangerous than horizontal quakes. This is widely accepted fact.

21. Earthquake waves move equally in every direction
There is established belief that the wave of earthquake moves equally in all direction. There is popular example of pebbles throwing in the pond where waves move equally in all direction making circle.


The waves of earthquake may change direction according to the weakness of the rock. It happened during the earthquake of Nepal.

22. Earthquake can convert a place into a lake
Some believe earthquake can convert a place into lake. It is said during the earthquake in Nepal.


Is there any incidence of this kind in the history of the earthquake?

23. Earthquake can sink whole city
Many believe earthquake can sink city. Last month, California was said to sink in sea with earthquake which was proven completely wrong.


If there is any incidence like that, please let me know too.

24. Some people have Sense of earthquake
Some believe some can know the earthquake going to strike by using a special kind of sense.


USGS says it is unknown. There is no such kind of evidence where anyone has predicted earthquake by using any sort of sense.

25. Tectonic collision is the cause of the earthquake
There is wide spread consensus that earthquake takes place due to the slip or collision of tectonic plates.


It is based on tectonic theory which is one of the theories developed on how earthquake causes. But what is the real cause of earthquake is still unknown. We can compare this theory with the big bang theory of the universe. Big bang theory is one of theories developed to explain how universe began. But what is the secret behind the beginning of the universe is still unknown.

When a big earthquake strikes anywhere, possibilities are more that rumours begin. In the other hand there will be more chances that even scientific analysis will be misinterpreted and chaos and confusion appear uncontrollably. The best thing must do by the government and a conscious citizen is making people aware on time before the earthquake and rumours.

Sometimes new situation creates confusion. For instance, when the magnitude of the aftershocks suddenly increases and people suspect another earthquake. But the reality is that number of aftershocks decreases exponentially but the magnitude is still uncertain. If there are low magnitude aftershocks, the numbers are more {see this}. If there are high magnitude aftershocks, the numbers are less. Chances of higher magnitude aftershocks will be low with time. And then the aftershocks stop.

Now this is the time to exchange our knowledge with each other. Have you heard any kind of rumours or confusion? If you have heard any rumours and confusions, please mention them in the comment section below. You can also give scientific reasons for them. I will definitely try my best to give scientific reasoning from my side.

What might be the Causes of Horror Experiences? (part 2)

When you are alone in home then you might hear some types of creepy sounds. I have explained these kinds of horror experiences and the scientific reasons of these experiences in my previous article “What might be the Causes of Horror Experiences?”. In that article I have proved you wrong by mentioning about illusion created by your subconscious mind. But in this article, I am not doing so. Rather, I am going to say that what you have been hearing in house when you are alone or at night is all true sound. Is it that scary? Don’t worry, I will explain in it of on the ground science.


When we are alone in home then we often hear some kind of tinkling sound from many parts of our house. In my case, I have often heard these kinds of sounds from grill of house’s windows, ceiling bulbs, doors, etc. It sounds so natural that anyone can come in fear. Anyone can believe that it’s something horror. It sounds like someone is throwing stone on the window but the sound is coming from the grills. “How can one hit stone from outside striking the grill despite the grill being inside the glass to the room?” This question was striking my brain. Then day by day I heard the same sound. I kept wondering at first. I heard the same kind of sound from the ceiling bulb too but there was no chance of someone hitting the stone at it which made me feel creepier. Then I closely observed the window frames, glasses, grills, doors, ceiling bulbs and all those things from which those tinkling sounds were heard. There was common thing that I observed in all those objects. Then due to that common thing, I got to know the cause and actual reason behind those tinkling sound. As the time passed, those tinkling sounds stopped gradually. Then what might be the reason behind it?


Due to the temperature variation and other different factors, there is certain kind of change seen in the objects. As heat is responsible for expansion and contraction of matters, if the temperature is high then the objects may expand and if temperature is low then objects may contract. Similarly, in case of window frames, same thing happens. Due to contraction and expansion of woods and grills caused by temperature variation, the knot which is fixed between grills and woods tends to move. Due to such movement in knot, there is collision between grill slot and knot due to which, tinkling sound is produced. Day by day such activities occur due to the same reason. In case of doors and ceiling bulbs too, same thing happens. Either screw or knot fixed in the object when moves with collision with other metal parts, then such tinkling sounds are produced. After some years, either the expansion or contraction of those objects reach to optimal level and the knot will not have any more tendencies to move as it becomes loose a bit. There is no collision any more to produce the tinkling sounds.

So, there is no matter to worry about such strange sounds in your home. They are all due to scientific reasons. No evil spirits exists to be responsible for such tinkling sounds in your home. If you have any queries regarding this matter then please comment below.

Reality Behind Recurring Earthquakes

The worst thing of the 12 May strongest aftershock of Nepal is that it gave an opportunity to the rumourmongers to spread fear of larger earthquake in public. And the matter of dismay is that people lost belief on seismologists without investigating the reality. Since earthquake is uncertain science, no one can say anything accurately. All they can do is recommending 'STAY SAFE' advice whatever they explain. However the seismologists of Nepal did not explain the event of 12 May clearly. It was their mistake. I hope this post will make everyone clear and then optimistic.

First of all I want to present some rumours similar to 12 May aftershock of Nepal. During earthquake crisis of Nepal, these rumours were hot weapons to spread the gas of fear, doubt and uncertainty in the community and they might be still used. I have chosen 5 major points in the form of my ready made dialogues which are similar to the actual talks of people in the society.

‘’Hi, how are you?”
‘’What to say? I am still stressed.’’
‘’But why? I think earthquake fear is over now.’’
‘’No, it’s not over. I have just watched on TV. Earthquake returned in Turkey in 2011’’
Point to be noted: Another big quake had rocked Turkey after the mainshock in 2011.
.................................................................................................................................................
 ‘’I think the earthquake has said good bye.’’
‘’Don’t say like that. Earthquake had reoccurred in Haiti after 8 days of the mainshock in 2010.’’
Point to be noted: Big aftershock hit Haiti after the mainshock in 2010.
.................................................................................................................................................
 ‘’Why are you worried? Now, don’t think about earthquake. It’s over.’’
‘’If you say like that you may fall in legal problem. Earthquake had returned in Italy in 2012.’’
Point to be noted: Another big tremor had rocked Italy after a big quake in 2012.
.................................................................................................................................................
‘’I think there is chance of bigger quake.’’
‘’No, it can’t be. There is no such event in the history of earthquake.’’
‘’Why not? Chile got bigger aftershock after the big quake in 1960.’’
Point to be noted: Bigger earthquake occurred in Chile making mainshock the foreshock in 1960.
................................................................................................................................................
 ‘’I am sure. We have to face big earthquake again.’’
‘’Is there any example like that?’’
‘’China got big shock after one year of the earthquake of 1975’’
Point to be noted: Another earthquake rocked China 1 year after a big tremor.
.................................................................................................................................................
Got confused? I know this is not first time you are hearing such type of rumours. But I am sorry to say THIS IS NOT RUMOUR. THIS IS TRUE.

Wait, don’t get frustrated. These rumours are true but they are not enough to make us scared. Because the reality is different.

Reality behind recurring earthquakes

1. ''2011 Van Earthquake'' of Turkey was of 7.1 M. After 16 days 5.7 M aftershock was felt. And there was no bigger than 5.7 M again. I have already written that stronger aftershock may happen within 1 month period. So I don't think it was unusual.
..........................................................................................................................................................
2. ''Haiti earthquake 2010''  got 5.9 aftershock after 8 days of the mainshock. This aftershock also happened within 1 month period and no aftershock more than 5.9 took place later.
...........................................................................................................................................................
3. The ‘’2012 Northern Italy Earthquakes’’ had given 5.8 strongest aftershock after 9 days. This case is also similar to Turkey and Haiti.

4. It is true that ''1960 Valdivia earthquake'' {Chile} had experienced foreshock. The 9.5 M biggest earthquake of the world had occurred after 7.9 M deadly shock. But that happened within the period of 24 hours. I have already said that foreshock can happen typically within 24 hours and sometimes in 3 days. Yes, earthquake scientists may present exceptional cases where foreshock happened even after months and years but they are still debatable in scientists forum.

5. Yes, another earthquake triggered in China after 1 year of the ''Haicheng Earthquake 1975'' {This earthquake had been predicted previously through foreshocks} but the epicentre distance between two earthquakes were 942.4 km which is bigger than the length of Nepal.

I bet no one can present any earthquake example which is unusual enough to prove that another earthquake crisis is coming. If you have found anywhere, you have done a great job. If you hear any rumour or you read any real history where earthquake is recurring breaking the general law of science, please write down in the comment. I am very happy to hunt the reality hidden behind the rumours and that will give you pleasure too.
