North East India and surrounding borders –  Bhutan, Nepal and Tibet in the Himalayan region was hit by 6.8 magnitude earthquake on September 18, 2011.

Approximately 50 people are reportedly killed and several awaiting rescue in the disaster zones.

Sikkim – the North Eastern state in India with the epicenter has suffered the most while neighboring Nepal engaged in search and relief operation.

The quake occurred after sunset making the efforts strenuous for the emergency aid workers and survivors.

Loss of life is always traumatic for the families and time being the best healer with trust in a better tomorrow,

Prayers are offered for the departed souls to rest in peace, the injured in their speedy recovery and fortitude to the victims’ families in coping with the tragedy during the mournful period.

Heartfelt condolences to the earthquake affected families in North East India, Bhutan, Nepal and Tibet.

Peace to all!

Thank you.
