I also stay in north Bangalore. I was just relaxing on my sofa after lunch . It is a really heavy sofa and my legs were vibrating mildly. I couldn't understand anything. Initially I thought something was wrong with me. My people at home never accepted tremors until the tv channels confirmed things.

entered our block after lunch and found people standing around; someone said they felt a earthquake. everybody just stood around laughing and talking excitedly. i walked to my desk, sat down and was drinking from my water bottle when i felt my chair shaking. first i felt i was imagining it, but it happened again.

i immediately shutdown my laptop, packed my bag and by then the evacuation announcement came and people started moving towards the safe assembly point.

we waited for some time and headed back inside (damn ). posting this sitting at my desk hosting a tele-con

Latest @ 4:21 PM IST

People here in office (colleagues) felt it happen again at around 4:21 PM IST, though milder than the first and less number of people felt it this time.

Anyone?

With Ertiga slated for launch tomorrow in India and Indonesia, will Maruti Suzuki go ahead and launch it tomorrow?

Will it be the right thing to do? I don't know, but the thought just came across my mind.

In fact when the quake struck at 2:15 PM IST earlier and when I felt the tremors here in Bangalore, I was reading on Team-BHP and other sites about what the codename R3 is and how it evolved into Ertiga. Coincidence!

With so much of attachment to Indonesia, will Ertiga be launched a planned?

Thanks,

I was in the 9th floor of my office building. At around 2.15PM, we all felt strong tremors that shook the building. The tremor almost lasted for 25 seconds. We all left the building and back to seats by 3.45. We again felt the tremors at 4.15 PM that shook the building again. We were asked to leave the office and now I am at home. The whole Chennai is in Panic mode now. Lakhs of people on road leaving home at the same time.

According to NDTV
"On the beaches at Chennai, policemen used megaphones to ask people to leave, with little effect"

So, the people dont really care. They have forgotten what happened in 2004?
