Greetings from Gujarat,India. I want to share this experience with you guys... Hope you can share your views on this experience.
This is occurred in August 2009 back then I was in the first year of medical college. It was time for my exams and new batch was coming in few days. I was staying at college's hostel/dorm.
Let me tell you about my hostel/dorm it was huge rectangle shaped building it had 3 floors. My room was on the left lower corner on the ground floor. The last room... Room no.11...every corner room of that building was different then the other rooms... Kinda big and not adjoining with the other room. My room was the last one and between the other room there was a window from where we can see the gap and backyard of the building. My room was huge with at least 4 person can stay with one back door and huge window with thick glass. After that there was small balcony with iron nets.
My hostel/dorm was surrounded by the big trees and bushes. It was beautiful view like if u sit in the balcony with books there is no one to disturb you. It was the reading vacation time and some holiday was coming up so only 3-4 students were there. My home was really far away from my college and I thought that staying in dorm will give me some enough quality reading time so I didn't go home like others.
So I was alone in the room and only 3-4 students were there on ground floor. I was reading at that time, it was around 11 p.m. I was alone so I lock the backdoor and close the window. My study table light was only on then suddenly I hear this sound like someone is walking in the backyard means in the bushes. First I didn't take it seriously though because I know many animals live in those bushes; snakes,pigs,dogs,monkeys etc. So I didn't pay attention.
Hostel/dorm was quiet on that time because very few students were there. The voice which animals makes in bushes was getting louder by moment. I didn't pay much attention, but I did know that it was exactly behind my room's balcony. And it was coming closer...
But I wasn't afraid due to thick walls and iron nets. Plus my back door and all the window were closed. It was momentary silence for like 5 minutes and then I heard this scratching sound on my room's back door. Like some wild animal scratch on wood. It get my attention.
My bed was far away from backdoor so I just looked at it trying to figure out what is happening. It stopped for 3-4 minutes and then again. It was louder and longer this time. I closed my book and just sit there. There was no hissing sound or grunting sound only scratching sound was there. It was like something was trying to get in. And it goes intense by every moment. There was no shadow on the window too. In 20 minutes situation got so intense I was standing on my bed. It was relentless scratching.
I couldn't take it anymore and I got out of the room, and went to that two room adjoining window. I stood there for 10 mins, I thought if its animal it will move and I will see it in that backyard streetlight. But there was nothing... I went back in the room but the scratching was still going on although it got slower. Like after 2 minutes you heard the scratching noise.
So I just ran out of my room and trying to find company. And my fellow student was there on the other end's corner room. I just went in his room trying to act like normal.
I invited him to study with me in my room, but I didn't tell him what was happening in there. He agreed and took his books and come with me in my room. He choose the last bed which was near to the backdoor and started reading.
The scratching sounds were definitely decreased but I can feel it. Even my friend told about it but he didn't pay much attention either. Around 20 minutes letter it was pin dropped silence in the balcony. Just like regular day so I took my torch and open the backdoor but it was nothing. No one was in the bush. Not even animal. I didn't slept that night.
It occurred only that night. I had some other experience in that room but never felt this again.
I still wonder what was it? Or what would happen to me if I open that door when things were intense...
English is not my first language so pardon me guys
I hope you guys can share some views...
