This particular incident happened to me when I was in my 6Th standard, i.e when I was in schooling. It was around 1996.
In our school we used to have annual day before our final exams. In those days annual day means a lot for us. I was participating in solo dancing & few dramas. This is the time where your parents get to see you performing. It's kind of a feel good factor for them.
I used to live in Ghandinagar (Hyderabad) and my school was in Ashoknagar, 3.5Km walk from my place.
Finally the day has arrived. I was filled with loads of enthusiasm. I was also a part of drill as our chief guest was the educational minister PV Rangarao, son of late Ex pm PV narsimharao. He reached our school around 5 p.m. And was watching the shows. By the time it was our group's show, it was around 11 p.m. Then a few more shows went on and then the rewards time for the best students and also farewell time for the 10th and 12th standard guys. By the time everything was over it was around 1 a.m. Since it was that late, we (mom, younger bro, dad) decided to walk home. All the way I was thinking about my performance and there would be loads of discussions on Monday when I went back to school.
We reached home and our neighbor (Lakshmi Aunty) was waiting for us so that she can lock the gate. It was their turn that month so she greeted us and locked the gate.
I used to sleep in the hall, my bed was beside the window. I have a habit of putting my legs on the window panel. As usual I was thing about what all happened that night and time passed. I was about to fall asleep when all of a sudden I could see two hand with loads of golden bangles on the window rods. Initially I thought it was lakshmi aunty. It looked as if she was peeping into the house through the hands, i.e head in between the hands. I was not sure why she was doing it. A few seconds later I felt its not her, so I went little bit closer to her face. To my horror I could see nothing except the hands and the head was like a dark shadow. I shouted, "Mommy!" Everybody woke up and I was shivering. Even lakshmi aunty and her husband came to see what happened. I told them everything.
It was around 3 a.m. And my grandmother said she would be with me as I was very scared. The lights were still on in the that I was sleeping, then this thing happened just like it happens in our Hollywood movies. The books and albums in the rack started falling one after the other. Now my grandma was a witness for the things that happened. She realized that something was not right here. She went out and brought chappals shoes & broom sticks and placed them around the room and also at the main door.
On Monday when I went back to school it was this discussion that went on, not the annual day function topic.
Since that day when I come home late, I wash my legs and get into the house. In fact that day I did not was my legs. I did not have that habit then.
My grandma also told me that whenever you come home late in future, she asked to turn back and spit before getting into house. I have no clue why she said so.
