Nation on 8 October remembered the tragic eartquake of October 8, 2005 with heavy heart.
It still seems to me an event happened just yesterday or so when the nation saw one of the most devastating earthquakes the world has ever seen.
Mountains on North of Pakistan shook with the vibration of death and horror. Thousands died (figures varying from 79000 to over 100,000 mostly school going children) , more than 300,0000 people got displaced and billions of dollars of property loss was reported.
Also I cannot forget the united effort shown by the nation (and I want that unity back but without any disaster) for a cause to help their brothers and sisters facing the most shocking experience of their lives.
Still there is lot to be done in the area (Govt. says 2011 will be the date when the area will be fully rebuild, God knows better we can just hope for the best).
Also questions should be asked about the inquiries which were initiated to investigate the collapse of structures like Margalla Towers in Islamabad and why the state machinery wasn’t ready for the disaster?
