May be it is coincidence or something else, but you can see that most earthquakes occurred on 26th date of any month.

I won't know but it does seem a little odd if it does happen.

May be the myLotter who posted this discussion was born on 26th and wanted the whole world to know what an epoch making event it was when he stepped on the earth. Let us expect some miracles from such a person. lol

This is absolutely not true (and has nothing to do with the number 8 being considered 'unlucky'). Over the last 200 years, every date (except 31st, which only occurs 7 times a year) has had a more or less equal share, as is proved by the answer given to the same question posed here:

The reason is he was possibly born on the 26th.

@Manojlamba ..oh...I am not supposed to look at the previous Earthquakes ..only the last few? I get it...did you know that the Koyna earthquake 6.5 on Richter scale was actually on December 11. 1967? The Latur earthquake was on September 30, 1993, which we felt in Hyderabad. And the second earthquake in Hindukush was not on December 26. It was on December 24th as far as I can recall. :) And since you are so keen to find a pattern, I might add that there are small earthquakes in Western ghats quite regularly, and according to some study a 6.5 should be expected in not so distant future.
