P.S: One more of a draft.. this was actually written on 26th June 09 🙂
I dunno if I ever told anyone here before… but I am fascinated by the whole paranormal aspect of life. Infact one of fond fantasies is that I am a witch albeit a nice one a la nora roberts novel.
Most of the time I happen to think ( delude if you like) that I have intuitions. Like if I dont like to do something ( and yet I do it coz I dont wanna believe) more often than not it always ends up in a trouble.
Lets say if its about meeting someone.. that someone won’t turn up.. or if it was about going to some lecture.. that lecture would get canceled. etc etc etc
I have been recently gorging on Kay Hooper’s novels until I had enough ( 1.e nearly 10-12 books later) and I found that well the kind of explanation she gives is very much plausible and makes complete sense!
She talks about electromagnetic fields .. and that few people have brains more sensitive to the surrounding environment and that they excite certain nerve endings that generally we dont use. and hence sixth sense.. intersting no ?
I also believe in signs. Like before my last mobile got lost.. I used to keep forgetting it as if something was telling me to take care of my mobile more ( but then you can also say if I was careful.. I wouldn’t lose my mobile in the first places.. ) Ah well poor example..
How about this one..
One of my friend was telling me the other day that ppl in her office were planning for an outing for a long time and nothing worked out. One fine day they decided to go no matter what. Their boss even forced his younger son to accompany them even though the son had exams in few days and wanted to study. His logic was , in his line of work, he hardly gets time ( they work in NGO) and hence family outing is minimum besides the kid was quite studious.. and well so they all went to Mekedhaatu. And within 5 minutes of reaching there, the kid fell in the water and died. His body was found 2 days later. Now t makes me wonder.. whether the old superstitions were actually based on some facts like this ? eh ? When something doesnt work out repeatedly.. it is better not to do it ?
Oh yes.. and ghosts.. how can I not talk about them ! Do you guys believe in ghosts? I dunno what to think really.. but I have heard a lot of stories ofcourse.. Infact just few weeks back me n my friend were discussing about this.. Our office is supposed to be haunted.. so no one ever goes to tarrace in the night.. not even for a smoke.. n if they go.. they go in lift or umm in groups 😀
Also.. the ghost is supposed to be in the 3rd floor ( we r on first floor) .. One of my colleague was talking to his girl friend on the third floor .. It used to be empty then.. come to think of it.. that floor is never occupied for more than 2-3 months.. oh yes and that guy heard some noises and he got so scared that he left the job 😀 ( actually he left coz he got a better job.. but this sounds more exciting na? )
but he did hear those noises 😀
Near our school there was this house that was tauted as being haunted. Any female who was left alone there .. used to burn.. in that house some female had died ( dowry death) and since that there had been nearly 3-4 fire accidents. It was some kind of a legend there.. so dunno how true it was.. but 2 fire accidents happened while I was in school.. umm they then demolished the building.. it was illegal ( building was)
So got any paranormal stories to share ? 😀
