I work at a MNC company which is situated around 35 kilometres away from my home. So I commute by my bike with another of my colleagues who used to accompany me 5 kilometers away onwards from my home. The road by which I was traveling was being newly constructed for about 5-7 kms. I had my first shift that week and it was around 4:35 in the morning and pitch dark.
Suddenly I saw a figure stand in the middle of the road on which only gravel was dispersed. I was riding fairly slow. As I approached near the figure I saw that it was a man in his late 20s. What was odd about him was that his face was covered with grease and all his clothes looked dirty and shabby. He was wearing a yellow T-shirt and jeans. He was asking me for a lift in Kannada language saying "Anna nilso Anna", meaning brother please stop. I just nodded to him in denial because my colleague had warned me not to drop anyone early in the morning or late at night.
I told this to him while we were returning from work and he said that he saw the same person at a different place late at night when he was returning home after finishing his second shift. I asked about the person's details to which he said that he too had the yellow T-shirt and jeans and his face was covered with grease.
I was scared when he told me that what you saw was not a human being but a ghost who might have met with an accident where I encountered it. I explained this to my parents when I returned home and they were worried about me. Since then my mother applies holy ash on my forehead while going to work and I haven't encountered anything else.
