That Picnic - "Ghosts" contest entry

Posted by DeeDee at 11:06 AM
Believe it or not, This is not any fictional work. This is a true story

Six friends, Mallika, Neha, Abhishek, Rhea, Larrisa and her boyfriend Mukesh. Like any normal group set off for a picnic to Gorai beach in Mumbai.

I am Rhea, and narrating this expereince I had when I was in college. I have been made a laughing stock whenever I have said this story to anyone. But, I know how I felt that eve. Even after so many years this day seems very real even today.

After a fun-filled day,we started to head back home by 7pm from Gorai. It was already dark by then
We had to take a ferry from Gorai to reach Borivali and to reach the ferry station we took horse-carriage. The road we had to take had no street lights and had trees on both the sides.

Suddenly, Larissa went quiet and tears started flowing from her left eye. All of us were confused. Only, her boyfriend Mukesh could feel her body is feverish. Other, couldnt feel a thing.
As soon as they got off the ferry station, Larrisa started walking towards the waters saying
"I wanna jump in the water"  to which her Mukesh said ok I will come with you. Larrissa almost pushed him to the edge, Mukesh took it as just another prank until she started crying with tears flowing only from one eye.

We got the ferry and Larrisa is still crying without saying a word. We tried everything in our capablity to console her, and we had no idea why suddenly she started weeping silently. 
The moment we reached Borivali, there was a Jesus Cross made of tiles. Larrisaa wouldn't pass by it and started to scream creating a scene. She suddenly, ran back towards the ferry exit that ends just near the water and sat there in a fetal position and was still silently weeping.
The rickshawala's near by saw this, and told us to take her to a Dargah near by.

Larisaa was just another teenager, slim and weighed about 50 kgs. 6 heavy men including Abhishek and Mukesh, lifted her with a lot of difficulty. We girls were not allowed inside the Dargah. With super human effort, the men, made three rounds of the holy shrine kept inside the dargah. 
Even, inside the Dargah, when the priest tried to rub holy ash on Larissa's forehead, and to everyone's surprise maybe shock, the holy ash was not sticking on her forehead.
The preist, gave up and suggested us to take her to a baba, an exorcist in the nearby slums. We were so scared, that we just agreed and just said ok to it. The men there helped us, to take her to that baba. 
It was a very small house. Nothing spooky. The exorcist was nothing that we imagined of, he was looking just like any other man on the streets. But the moment he saw Larissa, his lazed eyes were alert, as if he knew something.

The baba made us sit, and Mukesh held Larissa who was screaming and violently pushing anyone in sight. 
The baba ordered her to sit quietly, and Larrissa's voice changed.

Yes, it really changed to a proper heavy male, with  baritone and a Marathi accent.
Our fear knew no bounds, S**t scared, is what i would describe it as.

The baba, asked Larissa or say him a few questions,

Baba: Who are you
Him: Im Rajendra, plumber
Baba: Why did you catch this girl
Him: This idiot sprayed a heavy deodrant in the dark and has a very weak will power. Easy target and I wanted to come back
Baba: How did you die?
Him: *laughs loudly* I jumped in the water
Baba: Why?
Him: My girlfriend, Sayli left me, stays in Goregaon
*laughs even louder* I am not alone
There is a woman and her kid standing right behind you.

Hearing this the people standing behind promptly moved. We looked around but of course couldn't see any woman or any baby.

Baba: How did she come with you? Who is she
His voice changed to a high pitched woman voice
"That son of a bitch tortured me to death, I had to strangle my own baby, I will punish him"
Baba: Whom?
Her: Shailesh, I will get him
Baba was about to ask something when Larissa became Rajendra again.

The baba ordered it to "kill" the woman and baby. 
A lot of screaming and shouting happened.
After this, Larrisa suddenly turned normal and had no memory of anything that happened.
The baba then drew two squares on a paper and drew something in it. He asked Abhishek and Mukesh to burn it 12am that night at a crossing where four roads meet, and specifically had asked the girls not to go to the place where the boys burnt it.

It was already 11.30pm by then, we dropped Larissa at her place first then, Abhishek and Mukesh asked us to wait at a restaurant.
And when they came back, they told us, when they burnt the peice of paper it smelt like burning human flesh, and they heard a tiny scream that sounded like a mixed sound of the high pitched female and the male spirit of Rajendra and some strange heavy male voice.

Next day, Mukesh and Abhishek out of curiosity, called up the baba and told her about the smell and the voices.
To which the baba said, he had injured the three spirits but could not kill them, there was also a much stronger ghost lurking after us, that he could not hurt, so he had imprisoned them in those squares and if that paper wasnt burnt in time then the spirits would be free and angrier than ever. It might have even killed Larissa.

Many people do not believe in ghosts, But, they do exist.

If you believe that God exists and pray to God.
Then, trust me there is another world where ghosts do exists.
It is said, that people who have unfulfilled wishes become ghosts. 

I personally never believed in ghosts and super natural things. Until now...........
