The 8.9 magnitude earthquake that killed thousands in Japan proves once again that fury of nature has the power to crush the institutions built by human beings within a second. Such incidents teach us a lesson that we should not boast of beauty or wealth that we possess. It takes only few minutes for the nature to collapse them all. It’s not that the Japanese had not installed measures to avoid such happenings but then there are times when such measures seem insignificant.The technology saved lives but nature had the last laugh. God bless the people of Japan! In this tragic hours, I and million other souls pray for them. May the departed souls rest in peace.
