Tremors rattle Bombay,

15.14 IST.... I'm in Mittal Tower, 8th floor.... I feel myself moving a bit.. away from my laptop.. maaaaaaaaaan its an Earthquake... it last for 15-20 seconds.. but it felt endless....
Totall tense feeling... many running out of the buildings in Nariman point... a reason to run home early :)
Bombay has been lucky so far about da earthquakes, but for how long. We have 3 seismic fault lines cris-crossing across da city. Some say its all due to da God's blessings in Bombay.. viz mumbdadevi,mount mary, haji ali ..
There was an earthquake oday morning in the Andamans too... some co-relation??
