Pakistan: Blog Response

The initial news of this massive earth quake that hit the sub-continent took us all by surprise (understandably) but the resulting devastation and 18,000 + fatalities (so far) has shocked us even more. Obviously, many Pakistani bloggers responded to the news of this 7.6 EQ and I can’t list all of them for you but here’s a good mix of the initial responses from some the most interesting bloggers in Pakistan.

Spare a mouse click and help support Teeth Maestro’s efforts in raising funds for the EQ victims; Life, etc has a very personal post about the earth quake in Islamabad, Iss-tarting anew comments about the EQ and the media; Kay’s tri-photo commentary is rather accurate; Green Head posts his comments about the resulting devastation; Extiinct posts her initial reaction to hearing the news about the EQ; Mina is her usual descriptive self and posts a very interesting entry on the subject; Essjee has a very candid and sensitive response to news of the EQ; Cloudkhizzy writes about the day the earth shook; and Crow’s Nest rants about the faux pas by a local tv news anchor during the broadcast about the EQ.

Spare a few moments to say a prayer for all those people (in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India) who lost their lives, their loved ones or their homes due to this earth quake.
