Earthquake is not an accident. Let us not shy away from stating that It is more of a well calculated action by the agents of nature in order to keep the earth safe, in balance, and to also flush out some due reactions in the form of natural calamities (called adhi-daivik in sanskrit) in exchange of sins committed on the planet. This is not about being indifferent to the tragedy but about acknowledging the reality.
The ongoing madness of human beings on the planet, drilling deep into the earth for oil, gold and other precious metals and minerals, pulling out other vital elements that maintain the orbital movements of the earth, testing nuclear weapons in deserts, firing powerful missiles with nuclear warheads deep into the ocean, causing tremendous environmental imbalance on the planet by replacing jungles with industries, and the horrendously barbaric killings of innocent animals, especially cows, are some of the visible actions that cause earthquakes, hailstorms, draughts, floods and such other natural calamities. It is an alert and punishment from mother nature who works under the direction of the Supreme Lord, the controller of the universe. Like it or not, have it clear that there is absolutely nothing automatic in the existence. Everything is operated by the intelligence of conscious beings.
