People in Kathmandu were under tents on the ground for about a week or more after the major earthquake on Baisakha 12, 2072.

Hospitals were full of injured and dead bodies brought from Bhaktapur, Lalitpur & different places from Kathmandu.

Consequences:
Thousands of Nepalese people have lost their relatives.
Millions of people are being more & more power
Upcoming risk of landslides on mountaineous regions of Nepal that have been cracked by earthquake

Although there are countless bad effects of the earthquake but we have some bright sides of it too. These are as listed:
Political parties are united and the long pended constitution drafting process is on progress. There is maximum chances of uniting political parties & giving new constitution .
People are fully focused on the relief operation of the victims of the earthquake & working together.
National unity & people’s consciousness of earthquake is the good aspect of this terrible earthquake
Personal Experience:
I was at Baneshwor during the major earthquake of Baisakh 12. I too slept on the ground under tent, there was no electicity & almost all people were out of their houses. I experienced almost 50 aftershocks on the ground. But, In Baneshwor there were almost all houses safe. No houses were seriously damaged. But, the gates & few boundaries were collapsed. Hospitals were full of the patients & dead bodies. The situations were really pitiful & tearful.
