Wednesday, October 12, 2005


As some of you (the ones who have time to read a newspaper or watch the box) may know, South Asia and more specifically, Pakistan, Afghanistan and India was rocked by a massive earthquake measuring 7.6 on the Richter Scale on Saturday, October 8th, 2005. The destruction has been enormous and many people have died and are still dying throughout this region.

Living in a country where earthquakes happen all time and the chances of this same thing happening is far from remote; I feel for these people and I feel rather uneasy that I am unable to help them in anyway. This is why I am blogging it to raise awareness and to vent my frustration at the local authorities who, rather than help their own people are paying more attention to raising foriegn aid to fill their coffers.

Questions: Why does tragedy bring out the best and worst in people and governments? Why do goverments neglect their own people in times of need? Why do people think it won't happen to them? And last but not least: Why are these tragedies all happening now? Is someone trying to tell us something??

Wake up world it's time to mend your ways... before its too late! God I'm original... anyway you peeps out there stop being naughty, or else... by crikeys I tell ya... just stop it!

*As always click on the title for more info about this natural (?) catastrophy.
