My name is Prakhar and I am a resident of Jaipur, Rajasthan. I am 19 years old. The experience I am going to share with you is something that happened with my dad back in 1992 when I wasn't even born. My dad often tells us about it. My mom and dad got married in 1991 and this is an experience of an year later. Its an entirely true incident, nothing fake.
It was my maternal uncle's wedding and mom-dad and the rest of the family had gone to Bareilly (UP) to attend the wedding. During nightfall when ceremonies were about to happen, my dad suddenly felt sick and went to my maternal grandfather's quarter to take rest, which was alloted to him by the army. The quarter was located in the cantonment area of the town. Its not very populated and falls on a little outer. Anyway, my dad went to take some rest at around 8 PM in the night. He had some sleep and woke up at 10 P.M. When he felt slightly better and decided to go back to the wedding.
Now what happened next is totally inexplicable. Since the distance of the wedding venue from the quarter wasn't much and my dad was feeling slighty better too, he decided to cover the distance by foot. Like I told you, the cantonment area was less populated and the road from the quarter to the venue of the wedding was a little lonesome too. Now when my dad covered half the way, the light went off. It was a powercut. Hence, all the street lights went off and it was pitch black all of a sudden. Anyway, my dad continued walking. He had hardly covered 100 metres when a jeep came and stopped by. It had two men occupying the front seats. Without looking at him in the eye, the driver asked my dad whether he'd like a lift to the wedding venue. My dad was surprised to know that they were aware of his destination. But since it was the only wedding in the locality that day, he assumed that its a normal thing.
Anyway, he agreed for the lift and sat in the jeep with the two men. The venue was still more than two miles away. During the way, the two men neither looked at each other, nor at my dad. And the most eerie thing was that none of them uttered a single word during the entire lift. Generally people do talk a little to each other at such happenings, but they didn't. Obviously, my dad immediately got the feeling that something was definitely wrong with the two men. He just started chanting a little prayer until they reached the wedding venue.
While on the way, my aunt and her husband crossed the jeep on there scooter and my dad called out to them. Shockingly, they didn't hear him although the distance between the two vehicles was not even 3 metres. Besides, the speed was very low too. Anyway, Finally there came a point from where the wedding venue was just hundred metres. The driver stopped the jeep all of a sudden. He told my dad that they wouldn't go further at any cost, and that my dad would have to get down there only. My dad was surprised but he couldn't have forced them to drive further, so he got down. Now when my dad turned around to thank the driver, the jeep wasn't there anymore. On the long road, it wasn't visible until far ends in both the directions. My dad got a chill down his spine. And as he tells, those 100 metres from the spot where the two men dropped him to the wedding venue were the most difficult for him to cover. Somehow he managed to walk to the venue quickly and narrated the entire story to my mother who herself had an interrogative look on her face after hearing what had happened.
Today when my dad tells this story to anyone, people still get confused thinking who those two men were...
