Real Life Incidents
After hearing all the horror stories, my friends and I decided to go to Bhangarh fort during the night. We reached there around 8.30 p.m. and started exploring the place. Around 12.30 a.m., we heard a female voice shouting from the fort and we decided to leave. Horrified by what had happened, we all started running towards the main gate. And right then a wall fell in front of us. We started running again till we finally got out of the fort.
It was the winter of 2011. We had heard a lot of stories about Lothian Cemetry, so we decided to go there and check for ourselves. The fort closed at 5 p.m., but we had come this far and decided to see the fort anyway. We bribed the keeper who then let us sneak in. An hour into the fort, we were hanging around and laughing because we didn’t witness anything paranormal. Just when we were about to leave, we saw a man sitting near a window with iron grills. He looked completely zoned out and wasn’t looking at us. We looked closer in the room to see who it was, when my friend said, ” Bhenchod! Room ka darwaza nai hai.” The figure smirked at us. Scared out of our wits, we just ran away.
I am from Alwar and was only 9 years old when this happened. One day, I was walking near the fort with my father when an unknown man started walking by our side. We tried to get rid of of him but he was desperate to tell us the real story behind this haunted fort. My father carried me and walked fast to get rid of him. The plan worked, but when we turned to see if he was still following us, he had disappeared. People who were around us told us that there was nobody following us.golkonda

It’s a straight daytime story. A famous Tamil actress (name can’t be taken) just checking herself in mirror. Film crew is waiting for her next shot. Suddenly they heard a horrified shout. It’s from the makeup room. All of them rushed inside, Heroine lying senseless in the floor. They carried her on the sofa there and called doctor. He said somehow actress panicked tremendously. Almost after one hour when felt well, what she told, shiver ran down almost every body’s spines there.
She was combing gently her hair, checking her dialogues on the dressing table. When again looked in the mirror, she swears to see a man. “No, no not man, it was something else, dressed like old times Churidar, it was…..like something else, he was smiling, you can’t imagine his eye…Ohhh”. The actress was still in trauma.
The mysteries of the unknown have always fascinated the human mind. It’s not surprising for experts to say that India is a beautiful yet deliciously mysterious country that beholds the secrets and stories of a lot of palaces and their kings, of treasures and their keys, of those who died a painful death and are now a part of the broken synchrony that is a reality. Which is why a lot of forts or palaces or beaches or even a ‘just another’ valley in India has a twist of mystery attached to it and are considered some of the most haunted places in India.
If you are one of those who love to turn the pages long sealed and kept hidden from the human eye, if the word ‘supernatural‘ gives you an adrenalin rush, you, my friend, like me and many others, are someone who likes to push the boundaries a little and take a peek into what’s happening in the strange, mysterious world out there..The tourism department officials have started their research to promote the unique idea of tourism.
