I'm Indrajit and I'd like to share this particular experience of mine with all of you. It took place at Silchar, a town in Barak valley, which is located in the southern part of the Indian state of Assam.
It was the winter of 1997. I was merely 20 years old, a college student, had a conventional teenage life, playing hide & sick with responsibilities that come on your way during that specific period, a kind of an unruly child to be precise. I had a crew of classmates who cooperated with me in the business of the transgression of rules and we used to have a lot of fun. Sometimes we would bunk our classes and flee to a graveyard which we considered to be our meeting point. We boozed and smoked, confabulated all day like hell and planned our next outings/escapades. I never felt the graveyard to be spooky, though in Silchar there were many such places which were supposed to be haunted. People used to talk a lot regarding such stuffs and I always found this topic intriguing.
Well, I knew a girl, Suhasini, who was married to a judicial magistrate, resided with her husband at one of the many residential quarters out there. She used to complain a lot about feeling gloomy and crestfallen and scared of course, as she had to stay alone all day in the billet while her husband came back at evening. According to her, she even witnessed some creepy creatures, often roaming about in the backyard albeit her husband not believing her, ever.
Almost 2 months of marriage and when Suhasini was well nigh demented observing the utmost eerie situation, her aunt, mini chachi and mini chachi's 15 year old daughter, Sangeeta, whom I knew personally went to give her some company while her husband had to go out of town for a training of some sorts. One night, mini chachi who slept in a separate room during the stay (whereas Suhasini and Sangeeta slept together) hearing the door creek suddenly felt aware of somebody's presence beside her bed, she tried to grope blindly but was held back by that"somebody" and whoever it was, grabbed her throat and tried to strangle her. Somehow she was able to scream and the girls rushed into her room in no time to find nothing but mini chachi who had broke down in tears. It is also said that they heard someone banging at the backdoor of the house daily and making blood curdling sounds.So, ultimately mini chachi along with some other relatives and people of the neighboring area decided to arrange for some Hindu rituals and all. Suhasini's husband came home within a few days and he, too joined the rituals conducted by a famous Brahmin, known to have mastered the art of exorcism, tame poltergeists etc.
That evening, when the process to drive away the demons was being initiated, me and my crew gathered at our meeting spot, the graveyard, abandoning a tuition class. We were rattled abruptly by a sound of explosion. We were absolutely clueless regarding what might have happened and the zephyr that came through all of a sudden was weird and eerie. We decided to move out quickly as we knew something was wrong. One of my friends offered me a ride but I wanted to walk my way home since I had to pay a visit to a cousin of mine who had excelled in his board exams, residing nearby. I was on the route, a path which usually remained empty with not even a single stray dog around for about half a kilometer. After sometime I was about to cross the residential area of law keepers when suddenly I saw the silhouette of a man, his goddam body structure was unearthly like hell, coming towards me from the opposite direction. As I neared him I saw his face, it was totally deranged, slightly burnt and he was naked. When he went passed me I had a bizarre, spine chilling sensation... And just then only I noticed the huge combustion somewhere inside the area occupied by trees, quarters and offices. I didn't try to inquire.
The next day, I was informed of the blaze that had occurred near CGM's residence due to a cylinder leak in one of the quarters that belonged to Satyajeet Das, a magistrate. 5 people died including Satyajeet and his wife Suhasini. To me it was kind of shocking and caused some what indignation and since, that night I had a bad dream in which I saw the same creepy fellow I nearly bumped into the evening before, I felt sort of restless. It was like the image got imprinted inside my head. I discussed it with my friends at the meeting point and one of them told me a few scary things concerning that fateful house which had burnt down along with each of the inmates. Before Suhasini and Satyajeet, a female govt official used to stay there and she used to complain about a strange creature harassing her at night, having sexual intercourse with her and many other horrific stuffs that I cannot share in here. People started thinking she was a wacko. Eventually she died of heart attack in the quarter itself, that too at a young age. Probably it was an evil spirit summoned by some sort of voodoo to decimate her or might be something else, God knows, and as I think, it might have prevailed to finally cast doom upon Suhasini and her husband.
You see, I couldn't jerk off the ghastly incident out of my mind, from my system for a long long time. I did investigate some more, and I realized to what extent can these stuffs, often known as negative energy go...well, I have no idea who that naked man was... But I can't stop myself from trying to link him with that haunted quarter.
