Earthquake Reason in Hindi: Why does earthquake occur?

Actually, there are 7 plates inside the Earth, which keep rotating continuously. The zone where these plates collide is called fault line. The corners of the plates bend due to repeated collisions. 

When too much pressure builds up, the plates start breaking. The energy below finds a way to come out. Earthquake occurs after disturbance.
