I am narrating a para-normal matter experienced by my maternal grandmother.
As a kid, I used to stay with my maternal grandparents during summer holidays because both my parents used to work. Even during the days when I used to go to school, I used to come to my maternal grandparents' home after the school hours. Like all grandparents, both of them had a fond liking for me, and I had similar reciprocal feelings for them.
We used to stay in Delhi, the capital of India. Delhi, as many would be aware, is a historical city which has seen a number of rulers over the past 2 centuries or more. Delhi also has a number of tombs which represent either the burial places or places where former rulers of the country or their employees in the medieval era used to live.
This particular incident happened when my grandparents were living in a place called VSNL colony near Greater Kailash (GK) Part 1. People who would be familiar with the geography of Delhi would know that a vast expanse of green used to stretch between Chirag Delhi and the VSNL colony at GK 1. The area is usually very calm and serene even during the daytime when the adjoining outer ring road is bustling with activity.
My grandmother narrates that during the afternoon when she used to be working in the kitchen, she would hear voices which would resemble armies of medieval era engaging into combat with each other. She said that the voices were clear and it sounded like soldiers engaging in one-to-one fights using daggers, swords, and other similar weapons used by armies of those days. The voices of people screaming because of getting wounded and/or killed in combat would be very clearly heard by her. She would hear these voices only during the day time and only at a particular time of the year, and not at others. Curiously, she did not hear those voices when they lived at other places in Delhi. They lived at VSNL colony for only about 2 years out of the their total stay of more than 30 years in Delhi (they continue to reside in Delhi still).
It makes me wonder how my grandmother's senses could pick up those voices when no one else at home heard them. And why did that happen to her only at specific times of the year, and specific time of the day? Why it did not happen when she lived at other places?
Weird, but true. And scary!
