I live in a small town in Karnataka. I was very close to an aunt of mine who lived not far than 35kms from my place. As a child I was either living with my mom if not her then my aunt. I loved her a lot.
But on one unfortunate day as she was putting some kerosene in the stove her dress caught fire & she passed away. She has two children, a daughter & a son (daughter is the eldest). The day was very sad for all of us, that very night I slept with her daughter in the same room & same bed where she used to sleep because I wanted to feel close to her, soon I was in a deep sleep & I was woken up by someone calling my name. I thought that was my granny because we all had not eaten before we slept (I did not see the time). I woke up & went to the kitchen to get some water & seeing at her stuff she used daily I started crying again. Then all of a sudden I hear a whisper in my ear saying "Don't cry, I'll always be there with my children". I was so shocked & terrified that I ran to my granny & another shock for me was my granny was sleeping. Then who was the person who called out my name?
Some days past, we all were playing on the terrace of my cousin's house, my leg slipped & I was about to fall down. I felt someone grab my hand & I was safe. All of us including my mom who was present on the terrace was shocked as to how is that I pulled myself back from falling from the 2nd floor.
I am very sure that she is still with all of us, as similar instances have happened to her daughter as well. That I will share in my another post.
