Friends today the story I am going to tell you is about a true incident that took place with my mother and maternal aunt many years ago.
My mother with my maternal aunt was washing her clothes at a nearby well in the village. They were happily talking with each other suddenly a faint sound of a woman crying along with her child was heard from under the stone on which they were washing their clothes near the well. First, they felt that it was just their imagination, but soon the sound became so loud that everyone got scared to death and started trembling with fear, fearing their life.
Suddenly a woman appeared behind my mother and all the other women and told them, "what you all are hearing is not your imagination, it is a truth. But if you get scared of it, it will not spare all of you alive. So better ignore it and keep quiet."
The woman went far away from all of them, after telling them and vanished. All of them ignored the crying sound and came back.
Later on my maternal aunt and my mother came to know that, a young woman was cheated by her boyfriend who refused to accept her after she became pregnant with his child and he left her for another woman, who was rich in comparison to this poor woman. Soon she had a child born out of marriage and people used to make fun of her and insult her, every now and then asking her about her child's father making her life painful.
One day, she committed suicide by throwing herself in that well, but still people can hear her crying sound along with her little child, crying in the same way, loudly as his mother. Many people have reported seeing her near the well on full moon day in a sad state, along with her child and no one from my mother's village dares to go there on full moon day in that area, fearing their curse and getting scared of their lives. Perhaps, she is still looking for her unfaithful boyfriend to avenge her miserable death, which he caused due to his greed for money.
Whatever happened to that innocent woman was really unfortunate. I wish her boyfriend gets the punishment for what he did, but the woman who warned my mother and other woman, who were washing their clothes was totally different. I still wonder who she was. I would like to have an explanation about the another woman, which all the women, including my mother saw. Readers your opinion about the strange woman and this story are most welcome. Kindly explain me. I would be very thankful to you all.
