A boring Saturday morning!
The sky was not too clear and clouds were everywhere - creepy weather in the month of April. Saturdays for working people like us are meant for scrubbing, washing and cleaning. I had my lunch around at 11:15 am. I, then, went into the sitting room to turn television on. But it did not work as the signal was out since Friday.
The day was Saturday and the schools were closed when the devastating 7.6-magnitude earthquake hit Nepal. The disaster caused a huge loss of lives and properties. Over 8,000 people were killed, more than 22,000 injured while tens of thousands have been rendered homeless by the earthquake. Here is a harrowing tale of an eighth grader who was taken out of her collapsed house alive after the quake.
