It's 6am in the morning, and I am writing this incident about what happen last night from a park. I have just been here about 20 minutes earlier, before that I was in a Lodge in (south) name changed. This hotel is somewhere in South Kolkata.
I am very much disturbed and nervous at this point of time, and have already had 4 matki of Chai and half a packet of cigarettes since I left that Lodge at 5am.
I work in Kolkata for the past 5 years. Last week I had gone back to my hometown Darjeeling and had just arrived last morning boarding Darjeelingmail (night train).
After reaching my rent room I realized I forget my key back home in Darjeeling, and called my land lord for the extra keys, but to my dismay he had gone to his sasur Bari (father in law house) and would be back only after a day.
Now, instead of going to friend's place or relative, I decided to check in at hotel, as I was tired and wanted some good sleep and privacy. I checked in on a reasonable hotel, as per the price tag the room was small but somehow it look cozy, with a small wooded table, chair by the side and a medium size dressing mirror just by the side of a single small bed. Not much of a room but who cares I needed privacy.
Most of my day I kept sleeping. At 5pm I went outside for tea and not knowing what to do alone, went for a drink in nearby bar Tripti, reasonable and one of oldest. After 3 bottles of beer went back to my hotel room to spend the night, that's when mishap starts with me.
In the middle of my sleep, I felt someone poke me, so I woke up still tipsy with the beer, not sure if I was poked. It was around 2.30 am, I still was sleepy and went back to sleep, but than I could not sleep as I felt a strong presence of someone in the room, sitting in the wooded chair just few inches away from my bed.
I started to get goosebumps, and boldly got up and switched on the light. It was just my imagination, the chair was empty. I kept the light on, a bit scared about being alone, and checked my Facebook messages, one of the old class mate was online but I barely chat with her. Still glad to find someone online, I was going to message her, when I felt a hot and urgent breath in my ear, almost like a sound 'oluuu'.
I was startled, my heart leaped, goosebump all over my body, I started cursing and abusing as I had heard somewhere that ghost or paranormal activity should be cursed. I started shouting for hotel staff but no one came.
With light on I somehow spend my time with a strange feeling of someone still in the room. At 4.30 I went to staff quarter got them up, had a quarrel and left without checking out.
