This incident happened when I was around 6-8 years old, but still I remember it clearly. I used to live in my maternal house with my Grandparents as well as my parents. There was a servant in our house who was from my grandfather's village. Once his sister in law (who used to live in village only) suffered from jaundice and therefore came for checkup to our city. She was staying at our home only. She had 2 small children, a girl and a boy. Girl must be 4yrs older and the boy was around 2.I still remember it when she was badly ill. Her checkup went on for long time but her condition was getting worse day by day. And finally one day she passed away.
I was too small to think about her death. Time passed away and things went on. One night, I was sleeping with my parents. It was a winter night. At around 3-4 am I woke up and what I see is this woman hanging in air at the edge of my bed. It was a smokey kind of figure and a bit floating in air. She was having only her upper half of the body, and was wearing a white saaree. She looked very same as she used to, when alive. She was smiling at me.
I was thrilled out and put up my blanket over me and didn't take it out until morning. I don't know the reason, why I saw her. Its not that I was too much attached to her or something. But what I saw was real. Many years after I told this to my mom also. She said that these things happen sometimes, so better don't give them much attention. But even today I get goosebumps when I remember that incident.
