On Sunday, a medium-intensity earthquake of magnitude 3.4 hit Delhi. But netizens took up their responsibility to provide a light-hearted mood to the ongoing hassle in the state.
As the epicenter of the earthquake was near Wazirpur in northeast Delhi, it was the third incident in less than a month, according to the National Centre for Seismology (NCS).
Since the beginning of these tremors, no casualties have been reported until now. And a report released by the NCS stated that these shocks have been a part of the regular tectonic plate shift movement inside the core.
The shifts, which generally take place during this part of the year, are completely harmless. But little do the citizens knew that there were more reasons to think about the hardship battle.
Yesterday, the national capital experienced a mix of dim rainfall and stormy weather which impacted its way into the state and other neighboring regions. The state became a center of worries.
According to the India Meteorological Department, this sudden activity is coming from its ways of the western disturbance which has resulted in dust storms, thunderstorms, and mild rainfall in Delhi-NCR.
Amid the situations of lockdown and now with these scenarios, the tweeters had it enough and took the matter into their hands. So, using the current situation as a nod and taking classic one-liners related to all Delhites, netizens expressed what it is like to be while living in the city among the sudden activities.
One Twitter user wrote, “THE EARTHQUAKE THREE TIMES IN A MONTH IS AN INDICATION AND MESSAGE FROM MOTHER EARTH THAT THERE IS TOO MUCH SIN IN DELHI. PRAISE THE GOD”.
Nodding to the regular shifts in Arunachal Pradesh one user wrote, “I remember how my aunt who lived in Arunachal used to react to the frequent #Earthquake there when warned of it by my cousins.
He said, “Arre bhukamp toh roj aata rahta hai, pani bhar lene do warna pani chala gaya toh nahi aayega.” I think that’s what’s slowly happening to Delhi (sic)” and yet another shared, “#earthquake strikes again in Delhi. God in the mood to swipe the Delhi population. #earthquakeinDelhi.
