In the beginning of my career, I was posted at a small town in south Indian state of Tamil Nadu, not very far from Bangalore. We used to stay in an employee's mess provided by our company. It was a three-bedroom bungalow next to a hillock. The locality was a less populated one and nearest neighbor was around 150 meters away. We were seven people including me. The bungalow had two halls separated by a wall which practically separated it into two parts. The outer part consisted of the main entrance, outer hall and a bedroom in which I got myself accommodated and the inner part consisted of inner hall, kitchen, bathroom and two other bedrooms.
There was a desktop kept in the outer hall which was the only mode of entertainment. Being the junior most in the lot, I was only able to get my hands on the desktop only after midnight after everyone else went to bed.
It is in this bungalow, I had very two strange experiences.
On that day, I returned from my shift and after dinner, finding the desktop idle, started surfing internet. It was late at night, all lights were off and only a night lamp in the inner hall was burning, due to which some light was coming to outer hall as well through the door in between, creating a lighted Zone next to the door. Suddenly, I saw a shadow of a human figure in the lighted zone as if somebody was standing on the other side of the door. Expecting him to be one of my colleagues, I called him by name. At this the shadow moved away. Feeling very odd, I went to the inner hall to find out who it was. To my astonishment, I found no one in the inner hall and all my mates were fast asleep in their respective beds. Utterly confused and thinking it be my imagination, I went to bed.
On that occasion, it was late at night and I woke up to go to bathroom. Lights of both the halls were off and it was pitch dark. As I switched on the lights of the outer hall, from the corner of my eye I saw someone moving quickly into the inner hall. This time, probably due to my previous experience, I was little nervous. Nevertheless, I went to the inner hall and switched on the lights searched thoroughly and found no one. The two bedrooms in that part of the bungalow were empty as some people were in night shift and others had gone to Bangalore for an outing and my roommate was sleeping in our room on the other part of the bungalow.
After these experiences, I avoided venturing out of my room at night. I later found out that almost all my colleagues had strange experiences in that bungalow. Later, from a shopkeeper in the locality, we came to know that a female member from the family of the owner of the bungalow had committed suicide by hanging herself in the inner hall. After that, the family moved out of the bungalow leaving it empty for few years eventually renting it out to our company. There was someone in that bungalow who certainly wanted to make her presence felt.
