Strange Woman In My Window


I live in Lahore, with my family in our grandfather house. We were shifted here in 2003, after the death of my Father. This house is built before partition and was owned by the Hindu family, who left this house in 1947 and was allotted to my grandfather. Coming back to the story, the first night we shifted here, I heard strange noises as if two women are talking, the language was strange. In the morning, I told my mother about it, but she said it was my imagination. I went to college and forgot the entire thing that happened last night.

It's my habit to study in night, at about 2:30; I put my books away and went into my bed. It was December night, and mist was all over the place. As I was trying to sleep, I thought I heard something, very close to me. As I opened my eyes, I saw a strange lady in my window, her face was very large and her features were like Chinese woman and her hair was black and long, I was so scared that I couldn't move an inch. That woman kept staring at me and then vanished.

I rushed to my mother's room, I told my mother and she said nothing. That night I slept with her. In the morning, my mother told that strange things do happen in this house since she was child, and that these things never did harm to any family member in the house.

Well many things still happens, but that was the scariest thing happened to me.

Nice story. I live in Rawalpindi and I experienced somethings similar to what we say paranormal. I believe in God and I have a strong faith that if we believe in God nothing paranormal can harm us. 😊

Hey, interesting story, I liked it. I'm from Pakistan too. I'm from Sheikhupura. Something similar happened in my aunts house. The house in which they live in used to belong to a bunch of Sikh people, before the partition. Her Mother-in-law used to have these dreams of some man and she would also see him around the house, he'd scare her. The man seemed to be affiliated with the house. So, every year they have this festival called "Pandara" in regards to him. Ever since they've been having that festival, the man doesn't seem to come in her dreams nor bother her anymore. But, this one time when they stopped having the festival, he returned. In the festival they give out food to the poor people and other "sadkas."

Well after going through all the stories I just want to share mine a very short story...

First we live in another town in lahore where we usually hear some water noise in the morning like some 1 is taking ablution, 1 of my family member know that there is a old jin or spirit or whatever lived in this house but he never tease any 1. Once my grand mother told me that I was sleeping and some guy was trying to wake me up at fajar time but when my grand mother ask him who he wss just then that thing vanished from there and he told me this after some months so that I did't get scared. Now we are shifted to another home in lahore so 1 day I was making fun that now that old jin did't exist here and etc... But once I was in my basement (where I usually go) 1 year ago suddenly the bulb that was hanging on my left to the bed start flying and come infront of me and believe that 2 seconds of my life is like I just find my self so nervous even my legs start shivering and I have no idea what is going on I muster up courage even to run away from there and I run from the basement with light on and then I never go to the basement after 1 month of this incident:- (,, there are some other true stories that happen in our village which I will write when the site will be working for submitting the story...

hey! I'm mahrukh and I live in pakistan, lahore. My house is also haunted. Like we hear scratching and banging on our roof. My aunty and her two big children live on the top of our house. But no one would make these sounds at 2 or 3 in the morning! Infact, we asked them, but they said that they didn't make any noises. But they too even complain about hearing someone crying. Sometimes we hear someone jump hard barefoot on the roof. And sometimes someone playing with the pipes. And also someone throwing out huge stones from a bag together. And one day in the afternoon we heard some washing or some banging on the roof. We asked them and they said that they weren't in the house! These things happen today too! Like everyday! If you want to share something with me then my e-mail is sweet.fairy.17 [at] Please talk!

Hello Tia,

Thnx for your story. I live in The netherlands but am pakistani. When I was in Pakistan last time I spend few nights at my aunt's. Funny part is. She also lives in a former hindu house. Anywayz, I slept alone in one room. Around 02. 00 am I suddenly woke u. Like someone pushed me to wake u. But that I am not certain. But I was 100 % wake at that moment. Suddenly I heared a noise from outside the room. Like someone was sweeping the floor. With a pakistani style broom. You know one with sticks. Djaru... Or some like that. Let me tell you I do believe in ghosts. Because of my multiple sightings. And I am not affraid. So when hearing the sweeping. I stayed in bed and kept listening. But then I got curious I wanted to know who or what it was sweeping that late in the night. So I got up and really fast opened the door. Exact at the same moment. Sweeping stopped. I got out the room and wwalked around little bit. Nothing. So went back to my room and left the door open. At the moment I laid down. Sweeping sound started again. I got up really slowly and noisless and stopped at the door. The sound was just next to my door. By hearing maybe 1-2 meters away... So I slowly walked outside instantly sweeping stopped again. 😕. Then I just returned to my bed and went to sleep. Next day I told my cousins. And the confirmed my story by telling this is 1 off many things others also experienced in that house.
This is what I wanted to share with you,

Black Angel

thankyou all for taking time to read my scariest incident. I was not expecting any feedback.Tonith, it did happen while my eyes were open, it was not a dream, and yes my other family members too have experienced the various incidents and they are still continuing. Once again I thankyou all. God bless you all.

I found this story more credible than most for a very simple reason. You saw something, it scared the wax out of you and you run to your mother. The most important reason I totally believe this story is, you didn't just turn over and go to sleep-YOU SLEPT WITH MOMMY. Thank you for sharing it with us. Take Care.

I am not saying that it was only a dream, however when we are in our dream state and/or waking from a dream state our minds are relazed and we feel more at ease, it is likely we would be more open to what is around us that we normally do not see or detect usulally.

I would day what ever is there and what ever you saw did not mean any harm and more than likely did not even want to be noticed.

Thanks for sharing your story with us!

God Bless!

Sometimes when falling asleep or waking up we can have very vivid dreams that seem very real. The fact that you couldn't move is a symptom of sleep paralysis and it can take on many forms. Some people feel they are being held down or that they can hear someone or see someone but in reality they are half in and half out of sleep and are actually dreaming. The fact that your mother could relate to the experience as something from her own childhood may shed some light on the whole experience. It may have been a spirit and you got to see it. Ask people in your family if they have ever seen the same thing. It would be one way of finding out if it was a real apparition or not.
