A Rare Sighting


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.

Love to hear that all is well. Waiting for your next post.

Thank you for the appreciation 😁
Yes it gives me chills but I am not afraid of what happened...
Regarding the stress part, I think it is very normal for us to be handling those but I am a human.
And the exams were okay, I barely passed. But it was 3 years back and now I have a good job. So it's all well.
Though I have one more eperience. I would want to share it soon.

Very interesting harry1lynn
I appreciate how you've explained your experience, it sounds believable and I think you did see something.
The one thing I'd like to ask though is if you believe the odd sleep times, fatigue and stress from the exams may have caused you to have a strange "vision"?
I know when lacking proper sleep and being stressed I have had to take a second look at things!
Either way, it does give you a shock! Thanks and hope the exams went well 😊
