If there is something like a false déjà vu‚ that was what I experienced on 18th September 2011‚ the day the quake shook Kathmandu. I was at Patan Museum attending the third and final day of The Kathmandu Literary Jatra. It was the final discourse of the fest where Narayan Wagle and the likes were discussing the future of Nepali language and how English is slowly obfuscating it. As I was mulling over making a conscious effort to do something about my fragmented‚ English-riddled Nepali‚ I felt the porch/veranda shake. People were walking behind continuously and since it's an old building‚ I very wrongly attributed the shake to the age of the building. Then I remembered the same thing had happened at the same place some three years back when I was on a reporting assignment. The shaking had turned out to be a small quake. As I was about to recall the incident to my friend and make a joke out of my apparent déjà vu‚ the shake began getting more pronounced. People started panicking and moving about‚ the question posed at Narayan Sir was left hanging in midair‚ and the only thing on my mind was why I always had to be surrounded by the oldest buildings in Kathmandu during quakes. Barely a minute had passed when the shaking stopped‚ everyone regained their sense of calm to a certain extent and‚ well...the Q

I was taking part in the concluding session of Kathmandu Literary Jatra at inner courtyard of Patan Durbar. I was asking question to the people at dais‚ standing and with mic in my hand.
I felt giddy. Thought it was because of weakness as I forgot to eat my lunch.
People then realised it was earthquake and started panicking.
I asked them not to run but come to the open space.
I could not control my body and sat on the floor. Tried to tweet from there‚ but the Ncell BlackBerry service was out of function. Tried to make few calls‚ but the network was jammed.
Once I thought of taking out video camera and shoot‚ but had this whirling sensation longer. The programme was disturbed for a while‚ but it was brought to an end after few minutes.
I was sure it was a big quake and lasted for long duration‚ which was later confirmed by the National Seismological Centre.

I was inside restroom‚ just finishing my deal. My legs shook vigorously‚ then I managed to hit flush and run away. I had heard that latches stay closed or get jammed during quake‚ but I managed to open it and saw everybody rushing to ground and join them (I was on 2nd floor) non of the preparedness measures and awareness I had came handy‚ I just rushed to safe ground. But the fear didn't settle down till late night‚ I managed to sleep only after I heard of several aftershocks following the quake.
But still‚ I am bit petrified to spend my time in restroom.
