RAJKOT: An unusual fear psychosis has gripped some villages of Talala area of Junagadh district, where several local residents began living outdoors after claiming to have heard some mysterious "blasts" and felt frequent "tremors".
Coming close on the heels of the tsunami terror-floods, the villagefolk are interpreting the incidents as ominous of something more horrific and have begun living outdoors, especially in Haripar village where the frequency of the blasts is reported to be high. Talala is some 40 kms away from the Gir Asiatic lion sanctuary. But forest officials say there was no unusual behaviour spotted among the wild animals during this period.
A resident of Haripar, Bhanuben Odhavdas says, "we are really worried, after seeing the devastation in south India, which seems magnified after our experiences of the 2001 earthquake". She claimed that she was spending the nights on the verandah of the house. "We have stopped watching the news and are now worried that these incidents could forebode another earthquake", adds Bhanuben.
