Post tsunami, mysterious blasts amplify terror in Talala

RAJKOT: An unusual fear psychosis has gripped some villages of Talala area of Junagadh district, where several local residents began living outdoors after claiming to have heard some mysterious "blasts" and felt frequent "tremors".

Coming close on the heels of the tsunami terror-floods, the villagefolk are interpreting the incidents as ominous of something more horrific and have begun living outdoors, especially in Haripar village where the frequency of the blasts is reported to be high. Talala is some 40 kms away from the Gir Asiatic lion sanctuary. But forest officials say there was no unusual behaviour spotted among the wild animals during this period.

A resident of Haripar, Bhanuben Odhavdas says, "we are really worried, after seeing the devastation in south India, which seems magnified after our experiences of the 2001 earthquake". She claimed that she was spending the nights on the verandah of the house. "We have stopped watching the news and are now worried that these incidents could forebode another earthquake", adds Bhanuben.

Similar unexplained "blasts" were reported from Jamnagar district too, over a year back. Another resident of Haripar, Seema Godhara says "on Monday night there were major tremors making it difficult for us to sleep. Between 8.15 and 8.20 pm there were four vibrations and these were followed by blasts. Godhara, who is planning to vacate her home, recounts, "there was a vibration and everything began shaking, even the street animals began running helter-skelter.We spent the whole of Monday night outside, by a bonfire, because of the chill". She says her house has also developed cracks since the tremors went on well after midnight.

A senior official from the Junagadh collectorate said that large-scale migrations had been reported from Haripar and nearby villages. Talati of Haripar, K C Solanki says that the frequency of the "blasts" had increased since Monday and claimed there were 22 "blasts" during the day continuing through the night."

Senior seismologist (retd) from Pune Meteorological department, Arun Bapat who was in Haripar last month, on account of these reports, told TNN from Pune, "I have asked the district administration to install a sensor equipment to record these tremors since the equipment installed at Bhavnagar failed to record them". He adds that although he heard the "blasts" during his visit, the tremor was not felt. While assuring that these blasts had nothing to do with an earthquake, Bapat said that he could comment only on the basis of the data recorded by this sensor, which was yet to be installed.

"There was a tremor but no one is willing to believe us," laments Rajesh Unadkat from Talala. The blasts are reported to have begun since the last week of November. However, ever since then many people have left the villages and have shifted to Junagadh and other places, say collectorate sources.

This is not far from Gurgurat, India where there was a huge quake last year.


Things in the area never did settle back down to "normal" there, either. Booms, lights, shaking and all sorts of earthquake associated phenomenea have continued in the region.



I suspect India is facing a period of extensive earthquake activity....
