My experience about earthquake

SANTOSHI BALAMI

SIGMA H.S SCHOOL

The dark day for Nepal, 25th April. It was the day of Saturday. I was returning from village as I had gone there to attend some kind of puja on wednesday.

I was on the way of Pharping and the time was 11:58am. I didn’t recognize the shock but I saw a roof falling down on other side of the hill. The mud of that house was blowing so roughly that whole hill was unseen and the way was blocked. At first, I thought the epicenter of the earthquake was on other country and we just feel the small shock but I was wrong earthquake was first strike in Nepal and the epicenter was Gorkha, Barpak. I was shocked with the situation that earthquake has bought. Everone were busy with their cellphone talking to their relatives. There was a tenson and tears on their face. I was shocked and I look at my cell phone but the network was busy so I switch off my phone n on it again and continuously the phone rang. Everybody were worrying about me as I was travelling alone. I got pause fpr a while because I don’t have thought of the situation that I had just faced. After some hours I reached Kathmandu, kalanki. I rome around to many places like sundhara, basantapur, kritipur. Everywhere the house and roads were demolished.

As I was late to reach home everybody scolded me, my friends, my family as my phone was off. It was such a frightening moment that many house were destroyed and the dead body were of large number. The days was such a adventurous but looking to many peoples around me I was hurted also. The situation was very critical. And the next day of earthquake I went to thankot, chekpost as there was my aunt’s house. It was a safe place to live to survive from earthquake. Almost for 5 days I stayed there but the situation was same and I decide to go to my own village then I went to my village. I stayed there for 2 weeks and I thought the day was normal so I return back. My school was closed so I don’t have work to do I join the I 2 we (NGO) volunteer. My work was to help patient in trauma center. Some days I word there and there was a rally on 29 Baisakh, we were on the way when the second earthquake strikes at 12:56 pm. We all volunteer rush toward Tudikhel for the protection after a while I return to trauma centre. The hospital was full of patient within a minute. There was no empty ward for the patient. L0oking towards the patient condition I decide to return home as my parents were worrying about me . I help for a while but when a patient die in front of me I can’t control my tears and return back to home. On the way the condition was really very bad. The situation was like before. And this time I feel the earthquake of 7.4 hector.

The same daily routine repeats on my life as I had on firth earthquake. Many time the aftershock strikes and for me the day was adventurous but looking towars other situation it was really the worst day for Nepal, the dark day for Nepal. All the Nepalese will never gonna forget these days in their entire life. Everyone are in a hope that one day Nepal will be like before and all of we will rise again. The sun will rise again.

unforgettable day of my life

Hello!

My name is Sudip Shrestha. It was 25th April 2015AD and un forgetable day of my life. My small sister and I had gone to take the clothes at top of the house.We returned to our room. My big sister was sleeping,small sister was watching television and I was playing ball in different rooms.Suddenly electricity went off after few seconds the cupboard began to shake. I thought it was ghost as I was watching horror serial.After some time I recognized that earthquake came.Me and my sister ran towards my big sister. She hold us tightly and sat on the bed until earthquake stopped.Our father and mother were in shop.We went to the shop and our parents  closed the shop. Everyone was running towards party palace.So, we also went to the same place because it was open and safe.We stayed there for four to five days. We played there. Actually it was fun in there.

Back in school

Today,dated 31st May,2015 was our first class after the earthquake of 25th April,2015 was resumed according to the Government Of Nepal.I was very excited because my classes were resumed after a long break and was excited  to meet my friends and teachers and wanted to know about their experience of earthquake.

All the students should reach the school at 9.30 am but today I reached school bit fast to meet my friends and teachers.I was very happy to see them.All of my
classmates were sharing their experience about earthquake and I also shared with them.All the students except mine were taken out for sports programme.Our classes were continued  as we are in class 10 which is considered a iron gate.My teachers came to take class and before starting they told about the safety measures to be taken during earthquake and my class finished at 4 pm.
I am happy because only few aftershocks are felt.I hope it will stop very soon and we can spend everyday without any pain and fear.

Impact on Student

I am the student of grade 10. Just the new session was started. After going to school for two days, a great disaster took place in Nepal. Due to earthquake, Nepal is suffering from a great sorrow. The children of Nepal are badly affected.

As it was the starting of new session, children were excited as they were promoted to new class. I was also very excited to study in new class. But after the disaster, children are afraid. They don’t want to go to school as aftershocks are felt time to time. Some of the schools are totally destroyed. In this situation, children cannot make up their mind in study. Even I am very afraid to go to school. Our guardians are also afraid to send us to school. My friends are out of valley and they told me that they and their parents are afraid to come here.

I am trying to make up my mind in study and I think all the parents should support their children for coming out of all the disturbances caused by earthquake
