2 Secrets of India Earthquake That Scientists Did not Tell Us

January 19, 2016 6
This article is the second part of the article titled 'Is 8.2 Going to Hit India?'.

The Ministry of Home Affairs' {MHA} National Institute of Disaster Management {NIDM} has warned that the earthquake with the magnitude of 8.2 or greater is going to rock North India especially the mountains.

The experts have said that a series of earthquake of Manipur {India} in 2016,  Gorkha{Nepal} 2015 and Sikkim {India} 2011 have re-ruptured the already ruptured tectonic plates underneath the Himalayan region of India. Some international scientists even believe that recently rocked Manipur Earthquake is the sign that the stress has not been fully released which increased the chance of at least 4 earthquakes greater than 8 magnitude in the region.
Factually speaking, the tectonic plates of Nepal, Bhutan, India and Myanmar are interconnected. Though scientists reserve their arguments, there are some underestimated truths that can give some hopes which I would like to say Secrets of India Earthquake in this article.

Here scientists are talking about an earthquake caused by another one. But is there any known mechanism that has caused an earthquake to trigger another one in another place? Obviously not. The past observation says that the earthquake can trigger stress only over some hundreds of miles not thousands because the crust is not so rigid to facilitate stress transfer over thousands of miles.

USGS scientists say there is evidence that some major earthquakes manage to trigger stress much greater distances like thousands of miles but these triggered quakes are small and very short lived.

Another thing seismologists often talk is the record of accumulated stress on the fault which is recorded through the satellite camera. But the hidden secret which public is always confused is that it is not possible to make a direct measurement of stress on the fault. What scientists can do is measuring the stress of fault with satellite camera and then developing a model by integrating the record with the history of previous earthquakes on the fault which will give a rough idea where future earthquake is likely to strike.

In conclusion, there is no mechanism developed so far which can predict earthquake with definite magnitude and time. The only one thing scientists can do so far is the long term prediction which is a rough estimation and that should not be misunderstood.

Is 8.2 Going to Hit India? Part I

January 15, 2016 1
I was doubtful of the future when I heard Delhi vibrated last month. Was that the siren of a big disaster? On 6th January, I got a message from an Indian intellectual asking about the danger of earthquake because a story had been done in the previous night by Indian media. Thanks to him, I got online link to the India Times where I came to know that Indian Union Home Ministry's disaster management experts had warned that earthquake with a magnitude of 8.2 or greater is going to strike India. In the following day, I found translated version of this news in Nepali Media as this earthquake could somewhat affect Nepal too.















More mysteriously, I was considering predictions of an Indian personality for many years whose predictions were right many times. He claims that he had predicted Nepal earthquake too. On 7th January, he wrote in his time line:







He said in the comment section that he did not know the news about earthquake broadcast by media. Neither had I talked with him. So is it coincidence that three different corners gave same conclusion that there is danger of earthquake in India?

Coincidence does not end here.On 7th January, a student asked me a question, 'Ís India really going to face that big earthquake?'' I answered, ''If one more quake hits,,,.'' Say it just a coincidence or something else, it was predicted by that Indian guy too.

















You can be clear above, there was an earthquake in Pakistan and Afghanistan. I had  a query on my mind. Did that earthquake move any part of India? I got answer in media that the earthquake had vibrated Jambu Kasmir of India.

Then what is the conclusion? Is a big earthquake inevitable in India? If the earthquake is really going to hit, what are the scientific evidences? If it is a rumor or a false explanation, then what are the scientific logic to prove it wrong?
TO BE CONTINUED.....

How to Find Out the Local Time of Your Home?

January 03, 2016 0
You are running according to different time in your daily life. But is that the real time of your place you are going through? In context of Nepal the time difference from Mechi to Mahakali is nearly 32 minutes. The time of Nepal is determined according to the time of Gauri Shankar Himal. The time which you follow may not be real wherever you are staying. So, today I am going to present a practical way to find out the local time of any particular place.

First of all, let me remind you that it's obviously noon {12 o'clock at day} when the shadow formed by the sun is perpendicular to any of the object located in a particular area. It means we can keep any object in a place where we want to measure the local time. The straight line should be drawn facing ahead towards the sun. Let's name this straight line as mean line. The object through which we are going to calculate time should be pointed at its upwards and the top point should be the centre of that object. A regular shaped cone is recommended. The object should be kept perpendicular {at 90 degree} to that mean line. When the shadow produced from that object is perpendicular to the straight  line, it's 12 o'clock in that mean line. Just draw a straight line perpendicular to that mean line before keeping an object.


You can know your local time at your home or any other place after completion of this process. Now set your clock at 12 o'clock and the time goes running as the local time of your place. You can also calculate the time difference of your local time from the standard time of your country and you can find out your local time whenever you want by adding or subtracting the time difference you have obtained. Do it carefully because if shadow is misplaced by 1 degree, then there will be difference of 8 minutes. Happy experiment! Good night!
