  1. Our entire village, Boson-Roi, in the Garam Chashma, is literally sliding down beneath the earth surface after the earthquake on Oct 26. In about 200 yards circle, the space between the cracked has increased to 2-5 inches.
    This area is accommodating 20 houses in which 200 people live. In the middle of the land, there is another circle of around 20 square yard where an entire tree went down beneath the surface and disappeared. Now water has started coming like fountain from that area.
    When we threw a big stone into the water, it didn’t reach the bottom. All houses and shops collapsed in the land sliding area.
