This is more than a haunted experience... It is attached to my mom and her family's emotions. This incident took place some 18 years ago in my moms hometown Farrukhabad.
This incident is related to my mother's real aunt. Her name was Prabha. She was the most loved child of her mother and sisters. My grandma is third of four sisters and Prabha nani was the youngest of all. My mother, my aunt, and Prabha nani were quite of similar age. That's why my mother was extremely attached to her.
Prabha nani was married to a careless husband who never cared about her or the children. He was extremely self-centered. He often use to beat Prabha nani out of nonsense reasons. He use to take her savings only to fulfill his demands and luxuries. He was an alcoholic. My nani was very irritated by the acts of the man.
One unfortunate night at the stroke of 2:30 am the phone rang at my nani's place. On the other end of the phone was a family friend who informed that Prabha nani is no more. My nani Nana...mom...aunt all were dumbstruck on hearing this. My nani started weeping like anything. My mother and aunt almost lost their consciousness. Everyone was shocked.
When they reached Prabha nani's place they were informed that she committed suicide by hanging herself from a ceiling fan. But my mother and nani doubted it as it was not possible for anyone to hang herself just sitting in a chair.
My mother and nani knew in their hearts that none another than her husband has killed her as they can see many injuries on her body. Prabha nani had two daughters Ishu and Rashmi. They were very small at that time. Rashmi was 6 and half years old whereas Ishu was 3.5.
After everyone has gone my nani was sitting beside the body of Prabha nani. As in Indian rituals we follow that someone from the side of the dead person has to come to crematorium so that's why my nanjii has gone to pick Prabha nani's brother. And that's why the body was left. Coming back to my nani, she was sitting beside the body and suddenly she felt that someone just past behind her wearing an anklet. She thought it was my mother but she realized that she was alone in the house. She started panicking as the feeling of someone around was gripping all over her. She then heard a giggle same of that of Prabha nani. She got tears in her eyes. She recited name of god and then asked her to leave this world. She suddenly felt that a heavy burden from her body has been lifted.
But this was not the ending of everything.
On the other hand my Nanaji was in the cemetery was looking after the arrangements of Prabha naniji's last rituals. It was around 8:00 in the evening and so the sky was very dark. He was standing at the front gate while on of his friends was talking to the priest.
He then heard his name was calling out by some lady. He is very respected personality in his town so he thought who was calling his name like that and that too a lady at such an late hour. He let it go for the first time but it happened again and again. And after two calls a laughter was heard. He was so frightened after this that he left the place without completing his work.
All these incidents were continue to happen. With certain odd dreams.
One night my mother was studying late and then she suddenly saw Prabha nani at the ventilator. She ran fast to her mother and told her everything.
Next day a family discussion was organized and all the incidents were talked in that. We all came to know that Prabha nani's sprit was around the house because her daughters were living with my mother's family. Her only dependence of living was her daughters. She loved her children very much. That's why her spirit was still around. A big ceremony was done and after that the children were send back to their homes. After that all the incidents came to an end. I just hope that her spirit rest in peace.
The daughters are living with their father and step mother. But her stepmother is very kind and lovable.
Thanks for reading and giving your time.
It is really sad to know what your Nani had been through but I'm glad your family decided to perform the rituals for her to rest in peace. Having said that, your family's encounters with her sound real scary.😨 Anyway, please accept my condolence and as Jess mentioned, we are here for you if you need anyone to talk to.
