Grandma Stories


This was a story narrated by my Grandma long back.

It made a huge impact on me that I remember it even after 15 years.

This happened to my Grandma's Father.

Generally there was a rumour in her days, a baby born with legs out (instead of head) has the ability to see unnatural things through out their life, like ghosts and all. Such people wear slippers off opposite leg (left to right and right to left) just to keep ghosts away (It was a rumour as told by my grandma).

So my grandma's father used to work in a field during late nights and used to return home by 10pm approx.

So this particular day he finished his work and took/placed a bunch of dry grass on head and started home.

The route was like this. The fields were out side their village. And to enter the village they need to cross a small path of graveyard alongside a river, then a temple and the village starts.

So he reached this path alongside the river and suddenly the weight of grass increased, as if someone sat on it.

He also felt that someone sat on it.

He suddenly changed his slippers from right to left.

With stumbling voice he asked who is it?

He heard a female voice.

He felt afraid and asked what she wants and why she sat on the grass.

She said if he throws grass away she will kill him, also she asked him to marry her as she was alone from long time.

She told she will give all the stuff he needs for a better life.

By the time he reached the temple. He threw the grass aside and entered the temple.

He saw a middle aged woman who a very angry at him and started shouting.

She demanded him to marry her or else she will kill him.

He stayed in the temple until morning.

He told the story to his family, they did some pooja later.

It got disappeared later.

Sorry for any grammatical errors. I used to imagine this in my childhood, so I remember it until now. I didn't thought about the genuineness though.

Hi Melda, I don't think switching slippers from one foot to other require high effort. The hay doesn't weigh more than a Kg or 2. Anyways I wrote what I heard

Let me dispel that rumor for you right now dilip. I was born breech, feet first, and I don't see any more and probably a lot less "unnatural" things than most people here do.

I'm with Melda and the rest with this one. Don't need to say anymore but thanks for sharing.

Hi, Dilip.

This is an interesting story. I agree, things seem to be missing, but at least it is not embellished with silly details. You told us what you recall from hearing the narrative from many years ago, and I appreciate that.

I think the OP is unsure about this story. There are a lot of things that are "questionable" in this account but still, thanks for sharing.

lady-glow - You really shouldn't say things like that, you know. I should be in bed having nightmares instead of sitting here giggling 😊

Regards, Melda

🤔 Question. How did your great-grandfather manage to switch his sleepers on his feet without dropping the hay and the woman balancing on his head?
Anyway, I guess he was a very strong man or the woman was very skinny.

Thanks for sharing.

dilip506 - I find it interesting that the belief was that if a child was born feet first they wore slippers on the "wrong" feet, that is the right one on the left foot and the left one on the right foot, to keep ghosts away! I've never heard that before.

I don't like to be negative but I find the rest of the story a bit difficult to accept. Judging by your last sentence, I get the impression that you aren't quite sure of the truth of it yourself.

Just my opinion.

Regards, Melda
