A Ghost In The Form Of Goat

 

Hey guys this is Srinivas from Hyderabad, India. Now coming to the story this happened some 60 years ago. Roughly somewhere in 70's and the victim was my maternal grandfather.

My family was a below middle class family at that time and there was some family function and many people turned up, and they wanted to sacrifice a goat and cook it for the function as well. They didn't have enough money to buy a goat/sheep so they went for a hunt in near by jungle which is near to yadagirigutta.

My grandfather and his two other friends went to hunt sheep or any goat and after sometime they could find one goat. They were happy that they could find it quickly since relatives and family members were waiting for them. They picked it and they were returning their home but within sometime the goat seems to have gaining weight that too very swiftly.

Mind you my grandfather was a very strong man who could hit few men easily single handedly but the weight of the goat seem to be unbearable and he dropped it on the ground and explained it to his friends. Even they tried to lift it up but in vain. After trying multiple times they thought to leave it and search for another.

My grandpa, feeling exhausted, lit a cigar (beedi). As soon as he lit it, the ghost started to abuse him in the dirtiest language one could hear and started cursing him that he shouldn't have lit it.

When my grandpa and his friends reached the house they were told by their elders that the goat was a ghost and they are scared of fire.

That's the end of my story.

And another strange thing. I told this story to my girlfriend and she was shocked to hear because even her grandpa seems to have encountered similar incident. I was shocked more after listening that.

Thank you. Critics and well wishes every one can comment. I can't authenticate with proofs but I can strongly say that my grandpa was man of words. He would never lie.

Hello Gypsyking410... Nice and crazy to listen about your story... And yeah even my girl friend grand father seems to have encountered similar incident... As far as I know my grandfather was a ve ry genuine who would never lie for any reason... So I can assume he didn't lie... May be goats are easy preys for evil? Only a good ghost hunter can answer it... Or paranormal expert will be fine in clearing our doubts

Hello Srinivas,

When I was a kid I was told a similar story by some elders, the only difference was that, it was a village person who was passing through a jungle while returning home in the evening, he happens to see a sheep in the jungle, Now a sheep being a domestic animal he assumes it has strayed away from the village and lost in the jungle so he carries and it takes it along with him back to the village.

While on the way the sheep's weight keeps increasing, it becomes so heavy that he finally drops it to the ground, the sheep abuses him and runs into the jungle.

You also mentioned that your girlfriend has heard of a similar incident, so I guess its a tale that was during its rounds those days.

I am from Maharashtra, Mumbai, not Hyderabad.

Silverthane61... Hey that goat seems to have conversed in my native language... Telugu... Italian of the east... May be that ghost wasn't educated or didn't join school so it spoke in the native language 😜... I also wrote the words it uttered in one of my comments

The only stories I have heard about paranormal goats are the Kentucky Goatman and the traditional depictions of the Devil having the head of a goat. I think any kind of talking animal would give me the creeps, though, and I wonder if this goat conversed in English, Hindi, or some other language?

Even though I read so many stories I don't believe in the existence of ghosts 😁 because I tried to contact it in many ways... Through ouija board... And through some apps on play store... My father was an atheist who didn't believe in gods nd also in ghosts... I was raised in same way but I'm semi atheist when it comes to believing in god nd I don't believe in existence of ghosts... 😊

I can't doubt the authenticity of the story because that was told by my grandfather... And certainly not to freak me out or to scare me away from doing certain things coz I'm born and brought up in Hyderabad and I hardly visit villages and jungle is no where to find anywhere near hyderbad so there is no possibly of that case

And coming the "other meal" it's obviously easier and time saving ro cook vegetable curries and sambar than cooking non vegetarian right? And cooking a goat can certainly take much more time... Sacrificing it... Cutting it cleaning... So certainly it's possible to arrange alternate meals quickly... Even if I'm a male I have some knowledge of cooking coz I help my mother in kitchen

No lady glow... My grand father so a noble man... And a very spiritual and strong man... Both in terms of physically and mentally... He hardly use to lie... Even now people remember him for his truthfulness... Can you imagine someone giving lakhs of rupees without any security deposit? There was a landlord who was so greedy that he wouldn't give a single penny without any security deposit like house or land papers or gold... But the same landlord has given some huge money to my grandfather just because he said he will return it by so and so time... People believed him so much...

Srinivas - reading your comments makes me wonder if this is, more than facts, a cautionary tale told by your Grandmother in order to prevent some unwanted/risky behaviour.

I'm sure all of us have been told one, or more, white little lies as kids: don't swallow a seed or a tree will grow in your stomach; if you don't spit out your gum it will stick to your intestines, etc.

Do you remember if your Grandmother told you this after doing something you were not supposed to do at the jungle?

Another thing that surprises me a little about your Grandfather's experience is that he and his companions were able to go back to the gathering place and even managed "to arrange other meal". It seems common in stories from India and from other eastern countries for people to suffer from a high fever immediately and for several days after having encountered a ghost.

Just wondering...

Hey gud news... I have a good news... Especially for melda... I found out few words of that ghostly goat... It seems to have said "nee meeda mannu pada, ndhuku padeshnav ra nannu kinda... Nee peenugella" that roughly translates... "Why did you drop me on ground you, hope you die very soon... Very soon I want to see you dead

Hey melda... I seriously don't know what it cursed because I never discussed it with him and the actual story was narrated by my grandma... I lost my grandpa more than a decade ago so to its now impossible to know about it...

Srinivas - I realise that when your grandfather lit the beedi the ghost started cursing him. My question relates to that; what were the goat's words?

Srinivas108 - I have to agree that the timing is a bit off. Definitely not early 70's but I can accept that you got the dates wrong.

The goat became so heavy that your grandfather dropped it. I must admit I wouldn't have slaughtered that goat either, given the circumstances. You say your grandfather dropped the goat and it started cursing him. What did it say?

Regards, Melda

Lady-glow... That was a nice observation... I mean the time of incident... I don't know the exact year... It happened some where between 60s-70s or early 70s I guess... And they couldn't find any other goat or sheep... So my grandpa had to arrange other meal

The cursing cursed goat or, is it the cursed cursing goat?

A bit confused about the mathematics, since not even 50 years have passed since 1970.

We're they able to get another goat or did the guest had to fast instead of feast?
