This incident did not happened with me, but my husband - Rajat, some 5 years before. We were at our ancestral house, in Jodhpur, India. We stay in Bangalore for our work purpose, but since my husband's eldest maternal uncle passed away, so visited them.
Things were passing in a slow sad manner. Uncle was a retired Indian Government Official, and fully disciplined. He used to love my husband like his own son, even Rajat bore a connection with him. He was a man of dignity and superior stature, was to get up by 5 AM in morning daily, go for morning walks and wear perfect white cloths.
After 3-4 days of his death, Rajat started sleeping on his uncles's bed since there were other people who visited and had to adjust in the same home. It happened one early morning, that Rajat woke up startled and while asked he said that he felt someone tapped him hard on his temple to wake him up. It was a bit shocking and confusing also for me, since I always put some logic before such incidents. I thought may be he was just dreaming. Moreover, when you visit a death person's house recently, you get that spooky feeling always.
It, however, gave me a shock when I found that same day, five big finger impressions on Rajat's shoulders. I showed it to other family members and they all were scared. My mother-in-law concluded that mostly that Uncle who died, his soul might have visited, and it was he who tried to wake Rajat. By observing the fingerprint on my husband's shoulder, my logic didn't actually work.
Till now I am not very sure how or with what scientific reason it can happen or is it really the dead comes within 13 days of death (as believed in Hinduism, India). I have no explanation for that!
