25th April 2015. It was a normal day out in Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. People were out in the streets as usual. Tourists were roaming around the Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square and other such landmarks of the city. Many locals were out for the weekend.
The two minutes long earthquake changed the very face of Nepal and it was indeed a black day. Another black day in the history of Nepal after a long gap of 80 years. The most powerful natural calamity to strike Nepal since the 1934 Nepal-Bihar earthquake. Cries of women and children could be heard all across the small country.
Though it may take years to rebuild Nepal, the spirit and resilience of the Nepali people is sure to help them through these difficult times.
