Death - all door closed - on Earth quake
We fear all the life long
To that are we not strong
Are we right, are we wrong
But, we all has to face this fear
Be it us, or our nears
Some feel weak, some feel brave
On our beds to face death
My eyes are filled with tears
My heart is full of fear
But I cannot cry
C'oz I have to cheer
My brothers who have lost
Their dears and near
Here was once a bazaar
With people in hazaar
Some shopping, some singing
Their face were full of smiles
And worries away for miles
Their living had different style
Mens were busy in their trade
Children's were busy on parade
But now everything here is red
And once story about them said
But now they all lie dead
Scene changed within a minute
They did not have time even to panic
Houses and shops in a row
Went thump on the floor
And then for a moment there was a big uproar
People were drowning under the floor
Now there is nothing upright
People are full of fright
Once bazaar also lie quiet
Everything now is in rumble
People saved are trembled
It was a bad dream
And everywhere there is rescue team
To support, to save to rescue from their grave
As this task is brave
Before it is too late
To save few fortunate
And those who are saved
Even though they are not dead
But they still fear bed
We can now do things many
To help them with our source if any
And then we can still pray him hard
Not to throw again his wrath
And with hopes that we never again see his wrath
Let us all march
To support, to save them
To encourage them
And if this poetry of mine inspire even one
Then I think that m

Condolence Message:My 4-yr son yesterday asked why do quakes occur?
It made me think really hard. Isn't it that besides natural phenomenon, we as human beings contribute and endanger our own existance due primarily to our greed?
Our life revolves aroung Lobh ang Moh and it very difficult to rise above these.
Our sympathies to the families who lost so much within 90 sec and our prayers to those souls departed due to this tragedy.

Condolence Message:For a few days the newspapers are carrying reports that the relief goes to selected people based on caste, religion and sect. It is a shame that after showing some initial unity and sympathy indians are reverting to their old ways even after mass destruction. The quake did not distinguish between poor or rich or the mightier or weak. It is not entirely justifiable to blame the govt. alone in this matter b'cos people too are responsible for nurturing inequality. People from all over the world are helping the quake victims and it will deeply hurt them if the relief goes only to a privileged few.

Condolence Message:I'm in the USA where each and everyday I read and
listen of the tragedy in India. My heart aches and
my eyes sting from the tears I have fought. The tears now
stream down my face at the inadequacy I feel to help beyond
writing a brief message. I don't understand any war ever at this
point. Death and destruction should be as agonizing for
those inflicting it in war as it is in this kind of tragedy.
May God give you strength. May you find a way to not direct
the anger you understandably feel towards Him. This is the
ultimate test of faith. Let Him comfort you. My prayers are
for you all. With genuine love and concern from across the miles.

Condolence Message:It is a worst nightmare in the history of India, Relief seems to pour in from all sides but even now, they have not reached nook and corner of Gujarat and these politicans seems to fool around every where. Instead of Tax and asking others to help, the government can raid all the rich and famous in india who have tons and tons of black money. The politicians have made enough wealth and it is time for them to pay back to indian people. Fear god politicians, Help establish proper relief material transfer among all the affected folks of Gujarat, Unlike Bhopal Tragedy, atleast now let the people have what they deserve. God is watching us. I pray god to give all the strength to the affected families of Gujarat and sensible brains to the politicans of India. Mera Bharat Mahaan hai.

Condolence Message:Words cannot express the grief of people.. Imagine.. a plight of a person who slept on the 25th Jan. night as a happy family man dreaming of a future and a holiday rest for the next day and in a few seconds.. the powerful forces of nature changed the course of his life .. some lost their loved ones some their belongings including left with nothing but the clothes they were wearing at the fateful moment.. and in an over competitive world left alone to start afresh a new life.. shakes the trust in God is it not ?? One keeps questioning .. Why me.. God why ?? what wrong did I do !!
Well also teaches all a lesson that though man may reach the moon/ have wireless talking machines /walk and talk computers but still there is a force far more powerful..can leave this creature living in this world named human totally helpless and this force has no boundaries of nations/ caste/ creed or even humans or animals it treats them all alike and alas.. we spend our lives just gathering more and more material things.. all in vain..
Sad .. reminds me of what is rightfully said in the Bhagvad Geeta.. Do ur work and do not worry about the results or what is going to happen.. becuase one knows not what really will ??

Condolence Message:It is very painful and sad. I can imagine what they must be going through, who lost a family member, shelter or everything. I become restless when I imagine myself in such a situation.
I want to request to the LOCAL GOVERNEMENTS AND RELEIF AGENCIES - PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT SURVIVER'S PAIN DOES NOT CONVERT INTO SUFFERINGS. Take good care of them.
God bless all the quake affected people, May god give you the strength to overcome this horrifying tragedy. God bless India.
A REQUEST TO ALL THOSE who are in a position to help. No donation is too small and every penny counts. please help with open hand and help NOW.

Condolence Message:It's the most unfortunate thing to happen. The govt. has
failed miserably to react to the situation. This natural calamity has provided an opportunity to the politicians
and other govt officials to make a buck or two. Friends, Please do not contribute a single penny to any govt organization involved in the
relief work. See that your
donations reach the proper hand.
