On the night of the final exam of 3rd semester in engineering college this incident occurred.
I studied chemical engineering in a college situated in Nadiad, Gujarat.
After 4 gruelling days of giving exams, it was the night of final exams where my group of friends decided to study until 3 A.M. And then get some snacks and then sleep around 4 A.M. Exam was scheduled for 11 A.M. That day. Being engineering students we were used to this type of routine and our "biological clocks" were adjusted accordingly. Hence I was full aware of my surroundings at the time of this happening.
The place where we used to go to have snacks was 8 to 9 kilometres far from our hostel and we used to ply that road by motorcycles. Also to mention that the road through which we had to go had a patch of thick trees and was dimly lit.
At 3.15 A.M. We set out for the destination and had snacks and one heck of a time. Although while returning from the shop to hostel, I had a strange feeling of sadness all over me and just a persistent thought to stop in a particular patch. I didn't stop there and suddenly thoughts of death and darkness took over me but I shrugged it off and went to my hostel and slept.
After finishing exam that day we went to Anand to celebrate which is around 20 kilometres from hostel. Mind you it was 3 P.M. And I had my girlfriend at the pillion seat and just as I was nearing the patch, I started having goosebumps and then I saw a white smoky figure besides a tree.
I was shell shocked and couldn't utter a single word until I reached Anand and then I blurted it all to my girlfriend. She being practical, offered some explanations but I am sure that I saw the thing.
Nothing happened afterwards but it still is fresh in my mind.
