This is my 7th post on this site. Hope many of you have read my previous posts. This post about a "mysterious footprint" is about my granny.
So, this incident took place in the year 2001-2002, when I must have been about 4-5 years old. My mom narrated this incident to me last year.
Coming back to the incident, it took place at my granny's house. They were living in a nearly isolated area then (same area from my previous post "Strange Chanting from the Light House"). That area is mainly industrial and indeed spooky, especially during the night-time.
My granny and family were living in a 2-BHK flat, which had some kind of negative vibes and was always very dark and eerie. Never did anyone feel peaceful. So, when they first came to live in there, they never observed anything unusual; my granny used to everyday sweep her bedroom floor as it was her daily routine.
Once, after many months or maybe after an year or so, while sweeping the floor, she noticed a little footprint literally embossed on the floor of her bedroom and it was of a human child. She guessed that it was like a toddler's (2-3 years old). And there were no kids then, as my elder cousin was about 6-7 years old.
My granny initially ignored it, but as days passed, it started to appear more clearer and prominent. She was spooked and so she told this to other family members as it was really very odd, and then they called some priest to ask about it.
The priest didn't get any clue as in how it appeared but he told my granny to worship it everyday (performing a sacred ritual by cleaning it and putting some flowers, known as 'puja' in India) and as she started doing the needful, the footprint slowly vanished.
Till now, no one has the idea of what was it and how it appeared and whose 'mysterious footprint' was it. My mom said that years back, the area belonged to some rich community who became involved in murders and suicides and so the footprint must have been of any innocent toddler, who was murdered.
After the ritual, the toddler must have attained peace and travelled its way to the other world.
Hope you all like my story and comments are most welcome. I apologize for mistakes in my typing or language, if any.
