An earthquake measuring 6.9 on the Richter Scale shook the area of sikkim,India on Sunday evening (18/09/2011) at 18:10 local time. The epicenter is located in north sikkim latitude 27.72. longitude 88.06 with a depth of 19.70 kilometer. On that evening I was chatting with my friend in facebook and electricity went off then house start shaking first I thought as usual earthquake but it didn’t stop then I ran to another room where my wife was watching television, I told her not to panic but again I thought it is not safe to sit inside the room so I told her to get out of room and stand in the main door as I thought it would be safe. When we were about to reach door i heard girls screaming and sound of falling utensils. when we reached the door I saw neighbour house shaking like as its going to collapse but suddenly it stop. Girls and children start crying “AMA” and all of them start running toward open road and we too ran to road where most of them already reached there. Everybody there in the road were in panic and after some time they start talking about how they ran from their house to road and all. Some says “I have never experience this type of earthquake in their lifetime”. I too never experience this type of earthquake in my life and thought for a moment that I wouldn’t survive but God gave me the second chance to live my life.Old man and women start chanting mantras and other were start calling their friends and relatives but network went down.After half an hour quake hit second time but that time we all were in the road .So after that people start running to nearby school ground and sat their in open sky .After few hour, army personnel came and start putting tent in the ground for all of us and the people of whole town spend their horrible night there in the ground.
