Spirits & Spectre– as soon as these words enter into the ear, we become so excited & curious to go into their deep meanings. There is no exaggeration in saying that spirits are supernatural imaginary powers & uncontrollable forces. In reality, I don’t know anyone who has seen these superpowers but, since ages, with a description of terrible spirit, a tall fellow with weird clothes, scratches on face, an aggressive voice comes in mind. Wait, what is an imaginary image formed in your mind?
Numerous scary movies have been released & in fact latest movie CONJURING 2 is haunted.
The haunting in Connecticut , Ring , The eye , Haunted , Night of the living dead , Ju-on- the grudge  & Bollywood movie Raaz , [all are grisly, dreadful & haunted movies] have a concept of supernatural fantasy. Events or scenes in these movies are quite fictitious, yet we watch like it is going to in reality. If the 12 a.m to 3 a.m show has been seen then, even to bring a glass of water, we are afraid- that’s usual human psychology.
Not only movies, but somewhat haunted places also exist in reality according to paranormal experts. Dow hill, kurseong [west Bengal], Bhangarh fort [Rajasthan]- has dark past, Tunnel no.33 [shimla], Brij raj bhavan palace in Kota [Rajasthan], Delhi Cantt area [Delhi], Dumas beach [Gujarat], GP block of Meerut [Uttar Pradesh] are cursed, haunted places in India. It is said that some of the palaces are ruled by spirits of kings. Multiple stories are bonded to such ghostly places & make them actually possessed. Related to some of the forts, certain people presume that if anyone roams in these forts he or she will experience nightmares & get possessed.
Recent a serial KAVACH has been started, [directed by Santram Verma on Colors channel] is a phantom thriller. Another serial A HAUNTING was started in 2005 on discovery channel.
Many paranormal articles had been published in newspapers, depict actual frightful stories.
A few days ago, I had read a story in an old newspaper that illustrates one such extrasensory incident. It goes something like this…..
Four guys belonging to north-London decided to visit an unknown palace. They reached there around 6:20 p.m.; palace had been closed by then. The palace was quite far from their area, and then one friend said, “If we have come here then let’s take a look from inside” & rest of three friends agreed. Another friend said to them “how will we enter?” Finally, they entered inside via huge hole in the middle of the wall. There was a quite tranquil environment. They keep on walking inside the palace. One friend [Arjun] went to the hall of the palace. Suddenly seeing a man, Arjun got scared. An old man said “there is no need to be afraid, I am a servant of this palace’’ Then Arjun saw that hands & neck of the servant were scalded & Arjun understood that something was very wrong. Arjun asked him, “How did you get burned?” The servant told Arjun that a few days ago he had been working in kitchen & gas cylinder had exploded. Suddenly Arjun heard voices of his friends & went to them. Arjun told them that he had seen an old man. His friends asked him where had he seen & when? They told Arjun that he was unconscious for half an hour. Then Arjun realized that his dream had confused him.
Who knows the truth behind this story, But …………
Fun with fear is the impressive combination, creates crispy & frightful imaginary world, apart from boring life & pulls psychology of human so that one could relish some unearthly things too.
