To begin with I've been an avid reader of YGS for more than 5 years now. And the YGS team seems to be doing an amazing job at maintaining this website for paranormal/ ghost story lovers like me!
Ok to begin with, this incident happened to me 3 years back when I was in the initial years of my engineering studies. I live in a pretty hustling locality in Mumbai.
So one day I had to visit an ophthalmologist (eye doctor) at a known hospital which was in the other part of the town. Now my mom had been a patient of this doctor but I had never been to this hospital earlier so I didn't know the way to it.
I had my best friend accompanying me (as I'm too scared of the eye examinations they do). We were following the directions based on the address mentioned in the prescription which my mom had.
So around 12. 30 in the afternoon we reached the locality where the hospital is. We were at a crossroad, and in India usually there are concrete circles built in the middle of almost all crossroads. So we stood by the circle and were trying to inspect the location. According to the address the hospital was supposed to be exactly in front of the place we were standing at. And it being a big hospital, there was no chance we would miss out the name sign or the hospital name board. But there was no sign of it. So we went ahead in what we thought was the straight direction only to end up at the exact same spot we were at earlier. Both of us were confused yet we din't give it any thought and decided to go straight ahead to the shop in front of us and ask that guy for the address. So we went ahead and again I don't know what happened but we were back at the same spot near the circle. It was as if we were just circling around that spot while we thought we were actually moving forward. This time we laughed it off thinking it was the afternoon heat (considering how hot it is in Mumbai all the time) that was playing tricks on our minds. Yet again we decided to go ahead and ask that shopkeeper. And this time not to much of our surprise, we were again back in the same spot.
So at this point both of us got worried about what was happening with us. And in the whole busy street no one seemed to notice the little scene that was happening here. I was about the take out my cell phone and call my mom to ask for help when a guy was crossing the street and passed right beside us. So we called him out and asked where this "abc" hospital was. The guy looked at us in disbelief as if we were some fools asking a very obvious question. He pointed out straight ahead and said "here it is".
To our utter shock the hospital was right in front of our eyes. And there was a huge name board hung right in front of us. There was no way a person in his right mind could have missed that standing there for almost 10 minutes.
Both of us were equally shocked confused and scared but we avoided discussing it at all the whole time later.
Later that night I got home and told my mom about the whole incident. She asked me at what time did it happen. I said it was about 12. 30 in the afternoon. That's when she explained that there is this ghost or an unknown entity whom we locally call 'Chakva' in marathi. They are said to haunt crossroads or railway crossings. They are people who must have died in that spot because of an accident or something but the exact cause is unknown. And they mislead people from their paths. My mom explained that it was 12. 30 in the afternoon and 12 noon is considered as an unholy time. We were at the center of the crossroad at that time and so we experienced this. The Chakva tried to keep us stuck in a vicious loop but to our luck that guy happened to pass us by and we got out of it.
If anyone has any knowledge about such entities then please do tell me. Your views and opinions are welcome. Thanks for reading.:)
