But how big it is going to be and when it is going to occur is a big question, says Vineet K Gahalaut, scientist with National Geophysical Research Institute of CSIR, in an email interview with Kundan Pandey. Gahalaut also elaborates on the gaps in understanding and predicting earthquakes in the Himalayan region and the work being done by his team in this regard
