A picture of the building where our family stayed, the day the earthquake struck.Two wings of the building crashed to the ground, separating rest of the wings.
This picture was taken a few days after the earthquake.The first two floors of the building were crushed, and laid below ground level. I was pinned under the 40+ foot rubble of steel and concrete.
4½ days after the earthquake, I was rescued after about an hour of digging by the incredible IRC team.
“I don’t want to go the hospital, because I first have to find my family”
After being rescued, I was sent to the make-shift hospital for a checkup.I returned to the site in about half an hour to find my family.
The night after I was rescued, I sat nearby, waiting, while the heavy machinery was shut down due to lack of light.
Good times with the family.From left: My Mother, Roshan (my brother), I and my Father.
The day when I left for the United States, for further studies. A proud moment for my parents.I returned to India during the winter break. That was when the earthquake struck.
