An earthquake is a natural calamity which has power to destroy human lives in few seconds. It is lonely responsible for the huge damage to living and non-living beings. Earlier, people were unaware of the reasons of earthquake occurrence and the extent of damage. They believed that earthquake occur whenever mother earth become angry with them.

It was on my third week here in Taiwan when I suddenly felt a strange movement which I did not understand at first. I was rocked for few seconds; thought I was dizzy. After few moments I realized that was an earthquake.

I was from one of the Pacific islands, beautiful islands surrounded by a beautiful and huge sea with no earthquake. So just imaged picturing how that girl reacted to this new phenomenon in an unfamiliar place.
