I am looking for word which signifies effect, as from 'cause and effect' and you do something and you get the result, the consequence of it. The word I'm looking from rhymes with 'percussion' but am not able to remember it. I'll attempt to share couple of examples which will attempt to illustrate what I want to say -
- This is from a popular Indian film 'Karma' iconic dialog between Anupam Kher (Dr. Dang) and Rana Vikram Pratap Singh (Dilip Kumar) . Rana Vikram Pratap Singh slaps Dr. Dang and Dr. Dang replies -
Did you hear the echo of the slap ? Now you will hear the echo of the echo. Till you are alive you will hear the echo.
- The second is aftershocks. Like when you have an earthquake, after the main earthquake subsides, you still have aftershocks which happen.
I am looking for a word which tells that due to a decision or something which has happened 'say the financial crisis of 2008 in US' the effects were visible all over the world and still continue to this day, also it has resulted into quite a bit of unexpected behavior from many places.
I know there is a single word/phrase which tells all of the above, but am not getting it atm. Can somebody help ?
