    I felt it in Calcutta and I thought I was having a seizure since it carried on for a long time.

    The fans were swinging and so then I realised it was an earthquake.

    All tele and cell phone lines were jammed.

    A most horrible experience, even though I have gone through the Kashmir Earthquake.

    I was watching TV at home and suddenly it started, the intensity was low (5.2) in Guwahati but the duration was long. Though Earthquakes are very regular in NE, this one was different as it lasted for a longer period. Knew something went wrong somewhere and it is Nepal. Toll will be very high.

    Whether GoI sending any relief team to Nepal?
