Means 3 attacks in last four days. It is a indication of some big is happening beneath the earth. We should prepare ourselves for it. According to experts it shows the activeness in Indian plates.
It is all result of playing with nature and environment. Due to large scale Human activities against environment like deforestation, polluting of river and air. WE are constructing concrete jungle at the speed never before and killing environment like anything.
This action of us(Human Beings) will result in reaction from nature & environment which may cause large scale loss of life and property.
In addition we all knows that the Delhi region have high rise building which do not have any safety measurements while the construction of these buildings carried out. In normal routine also they do not follow safety codes and standards. The arrangements of government is also no-where in case of any disaster. Generally Indian government needs to call Army for relief work in case of natural calamities. Also our equipment to deal with disasters are not according to International standards. We needs world class equipment to save the life and remove debris.
All government agencies must review and prepare themselves for disasters in view of latest developments. Anything required for disaster management must be immediately arranged. Volunteers must be recruited for this purpose. It is very important to review and repair the safety and operating procedures of Nuclear Plants. The recent disaster of Fukushima Nuclear Plant of Japan is clearly known to everyone. All the Nuclear Plants must have extra backup plan to deal with disasters. Three tier safety and backup must be implemented in Nuclear Plants.
Also all the high rise buildings must be inspected. Any building which do not meets safety standards must be immediately forced to meet the guidelines and strict action must be taken in case of non-conformity. All buildings which have completed their life must be demolished.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT ALL MEASURES MUST BE CARRIED PRACTICALLY NOT ON PAPERS TO COMPLETE FORMALITY BY TAKING BRIBE MONEY.
