A disaster is any accident or natural calamity that causes huge loss of life and property. Various types of natural disasters occur because of movement of tectonic plates, within the earth's crust. Floods, cyclones, earthquakes, volcanoes etc. are examples of such natural disaster. The term “disaster” indicates a sudden misfortune, too. Disasters are nothing but a tragedy which can happen almost any time. Disasters strike always at the untimely hour, like a bolt from the blue. Since, we are not prepared to face any disaster, a disaster leaves us ruined, invariably.
Orlando Bloom, once while comparing failure and fiasco, remarked, “Failure is simply the non-presence of success. But a fiasco is a disaster of mythic proportion.” As such, failure is only minor misfortune, but a fiasco or disaster is a major catastrophe. Disasters should be fought with bravery and fortitude, so as to compensate for the loss of life and property; the two major losses that accompany a disaster, invariably.
