An earthquake alarm will sound once it detects vibration and though it may provide a false sense of safety as it’s not guaranteed to save your life as much as to signal for evacuation, Akshay Sthapit, owner of harilo.com, the popular web portal through which the alarm can also be ordered is thankful for the one he has installed in his house. In light of the 5.7 earthquake on the Richter scale that hit western Nepal in April this year, he says, “I´m happy to say that my EQ alarm went off even though nothing else in the house shook”.
"People are buying goods from Harilo.com because the same item is more expensive in the local market... challenge for the company is to make customers aware of the immense range of items available on sites such as Amazon.com as most people [in Nepal] are not exposed to the range of products and services on international portals".
