Dear Mods Miracles and Granny,

Have you any idea if you've come across the story "THE GRAVEYARD BUILDING" by maggirockz13?
She's new here and English is not her 1st language,she's a little weak in grammar by her own admission. I thought that maybe if her story did not pass the scrutiny, she should have the knowledge of it so that she might revise it using spelling & grammar check before she submits again.
Would be grateful if you respond 😐

Dear Meghna,

Did you recheck and revise your story before posting?
Often mods hold back stories that have multiple grammatical errors and might be thus difficult for the wide range of readers on YGS to understand.
Jodi tumi aamaake tomar story-r naam daao taahole aami try kore dekhte paari je problemta ki.
For your next story, or if you need to re-write this one, I advise you to write in MS WORD and use its spell and grammar check. Submit it only after you have done this. It helps.
Tumi nijei to bolechhile tomaar grammar weak, taai aami ei suggestion gulo dilam.
Please do not be offended.

Dear Meghna,
Be patient child. Each one of us who submits a story has to wait.
The mods you see on this site are a very hard working lot. They sift through endless submissions, wrack their brains by going through each and everyone of them. Some are published earlier and some are published later. And theirs is a thankless job. They manage all this along with their own personal lives and taking care of family & children. So wait a bit more.
Tumi aar ektu wait kore dekho.Okay!

Okay Meghna,
The first rule of chatting online is never ever give a stranger your address. If you have to give an idea where you are from, keep it vague.
Kisi ko apna exact pata mat batana net par. Pata nahi kaun psycho ho aur aapke ghar pahunch jaaye!
To agar aap mujh se poochh rahi hain ki main kahan se hoon to main abhi to bas aapko apna state hi bata sakta hoon which is WB.
Aap kahan rehti hain? Bangaal mein to nahin I presume.
Aapke jyadatar dost non bengalis hain kya?

I appreciate that you acknowledge my grandfather's grit. That man put a lot of hardwork in bringing up a family starting from scratch. And I think he loved to sweat it out! I remember seeing him doing odd farm jobs, in his own farmland, upto a ripe old age!

Hi Ari, This was a well-written story, and I love that your grandfather just still flatly refused to believe in the paranormal, even after his experience! I get the impression he was a character! πŸ˜‰ (I guess I have a fondness for people with what we, around here, would consider "grit"...basically, stubbornness in spite of all odds being against you! There is sometimes beauty in that.

I also wanted to say that in reading through the comments, your reply to Hotrod's offer of friendship, was possibly one of the cleverest, most polite declines I've ever had the privilege of reading! Haha, awesome πŸ˜† yep, I cheered & clapped my hands for that one.

You always have great input, and a gift for behind very kind & non-confrontational with your words, but you are no pushover. Thank you for being such a cool voice of reason. 😁

Take care, and Best Wishes!

You are right. You had a tough job going through all those languages spoken here. I tell you, going by dialect, you are pretty close.
Lets see... If maggirockz13 replies soon to me,I'll tell you if you haven't already found out (your sleuthing is good), what language it is.Deal?

Dear Sonty,
Aapni ki Bangali?

Thanks for reading my story. I hope you liked my narration.

The weird part is not the apparition, but that my grandfather still never became a believer, he never saw anything again, and moreover he was never afraid!

As far as I know, no one in my family believes in paranormal, even after this occurrence. My father in his younger days used to go for night college. Since he lived in a village and in those days it was a very rural area, he had to walk several kilometers to reach home from the railway station at around midnight after each class. Some of the places he walked through remained deserted after dusk as villagers used to quake in mortal fear in their pants, at the mere mention of those spots. Even if one had to pass those 'haunted' stretches due to some emergency, he would gather a few friends for company, but never alone. So many had fainted trying to be brave or for a bet. Yet my father, he never saw a thing.

Strange huh!

I really enjoyed reading your story! Reading paranormal experiences from a different culture and country as my own really peaks my interest.

Dear Fergie,
Oops! I did not check my own story for new comments! My bad πŸ˜†
Replying to your query, he never actually talked to anyone about this, according to what my father has told me. So there was neither denial nor acceptance. Whatever the others came to know was from Baidyanath, the acquaintance.
About the existence, all members of my paternal and maternal family always said that there are no such things as ghosts, no offence intended.

Thanks for reading & asking...😁

Your tale was fascinating, and very well told.

Did your grandfather ever even entertain the idea, that he MAY have had a paranormal experience? Or was it flat out denial?

Ari,
Thank you, I will. My name was shortened by zzgranny a long time ago.

You know, the funny thing about all this yelling is that after you've been here a while you get to see the same themes being repeated. And after so many times of seeing all the 'Woman in White' (blue, grey, or red), you get to the point where you can't take it any longer and start making jokes about her out of frustration. The same goes for 'Bloody Mary', Ouija Boards, Hell hounds, the girl from the movie 'The Ring', the kid from the movie 'The Grudge', teenage demon lovers that fantasize about their own personal demon/protector, 3:00 in the morning visits from evil entities, sleep paralysis, etc, etc, etc.
I'm sure you can come up with some as well.
However, when I read about your grandfathers weird encounter, I got to thinking maybe I should really check into some of these. Just as a curiosity and also because I had been making fun of these for so long I thought it only fair, you know? No big project really, just get to it and see what's up.
Remind me never to do that again! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† Holy Moly! No more thinking out loud around here or you'll wind up on the suspicious characters list. Just kidding...

Yikes! I talk too much! 😲

Hi Sceptic-Ari

I really enjoyed your story and very nicely told. I think some people find it hard to accept he notion that there could be more to life than what we can see touch and feel. Maybe your grandfather was so set in his ways because he had never experienced anything like this before that he couldn't bring himself to admit that he did see something out of the ordinary.

Thanks for sharing this enjoyable story! 😊

Thanks for appreciating the narration, although the real credit goes to other...er...beings, for giving me a chance to narrate. You liked my way of telling it, that's enough for me.
You are always welcome to comment... And I always like a good yet clean fight.
As for the incident being genuine paranormal or not... I really do not have any idea. Neither does my father who was around ten at that time. It seems strange as well as somewhat heroic to me that my Grampa was not even fazed by this occurrence if I may call it so.
It was as if... Nothing had happened.

I joined this site to share my experiences and to offer advice to people or at least try to help them understand what they may be experiencing and I hope I have been able to do so.

In the case of the experience you have shared here... It seems it was a genuine paranormal experience and because it happened to your Grandfather, and you requested no aid or advice I chose not to comment... Until 'things' started to get out of hand with some of the comments...

I enjoyed reading this... Well told, well told indeed.

Nice one, nicely narrated too, living in India it has become a part of us actually being horrified by a white or red saree woman sighted in dark. I wonder how courageous your grandpa would have been to actually scare a ghost and make her run for her life (just kidding) .Nice narration once again

Beavis/butthead,

The only thing I want to clear up here is that my 'theories' may seem wild to you and that's just fine. However, what I was saying about the woman in white stories was not theory, I posed questions. That's called curiosity. And curiosity precedes theory.
Also, my 'theories' are referred to as 'running with scissors theories'. That should give you some indication as to how they come about. They may not always pan out, but some of them have not been as 'wild' as you might think. And let's face it, this is the paranormal we're talking about here. You can pretty much put all of our theories on the wild side if you want to be picky about it.
Of course, that's just my opinion. And just like everyone else here, I am allowed to have one.

Have a lovely evening,
Jav

To tell you the truth, I missed whatever just happened here and I don't even want to know what was said. One less debate isn't going to hurt me.

beavis,

My 'dust in the wind' comment was made for/to Miracles and was meant 'tongue in cheek'. It was also made after you deleted your original account.

You sir are more than welcome to post your comments and offer advice and aid to people, but again you are drawing this conversation... This comments thread away from the O/P experience and making it about yourself.

Let's just return to the regularly scheduled program, I am way, way to tired at this point in time and may say something that's way out of line.

So...let there be peace between us...I'm 'backing away slowly'...

Again Sceptic-Ari I offer my apologies.

Respectfully,

Rook

beavis - once again, this is not productive. At all. You deleted your butthead account but came back answering as Beavis, which I admit was a bit confusing (at least to me LOL) until I put the two together.

Now...stop with the explanations. Go back to the story. Offer your advice. If you don't have any advice, move on to another story.

You have, in this latest comment, instigated more reason for me to delete your comments. I understand the frustration and wanting to have the "last word." But when there's no one to read it because it's been deleted, what is the point? Really? From here on out, if I see your name, I will scan your comment... Look for names of other o/p's that you have had "interactions" with, and immediately delete the comment.

We understand each other?

Like I said, it's not personal. But this is a site geared toward advice to people who need help. This isn't what is going on here.

and to be honest miracles, one respective reply regarding any thought from Jav, would have been equally responded with respect and politeness of one having there own opinion. Yes I approached it in the wrong way perhaps, but she should have read all, and responded in a similar way (in no way was I agressive) and I would have just responded with equal maturity.
I was respective as I could be in regards to the opinion I made. But she didn't read all, and was less respective in response to my intiial response without hearing all I had to say.
Had she read all, and voiced a mature response, I would have equally followed.
So really, it's no wonder I respond in such a way now. No? Nevermind it's over I will delete my account lol.

i apolagize miracles. My only concern was that the writer of this story didn't get hooked up into that wild theory. You are right my response was not really in relation to the story. But in concern for the publisher.
Take care.

agreed miracles.
I do wishyou saved my initial post for her to read fully out. Perhaps the response would have not been so agressive. Perhaps.
I was just voicing an opinion on what I thought was an opinion. In a none conflict way as I possibly could at the time.
But it is 2012, opinions are not welcome I guess;) no worries.

butthead - just so you're not confused about why your comments were deleted, I will tell you why I deleted them.

This story, as all submissions on this site, deserve the respect and advice you would want your own to have. Your comments weren't in the interest of the story and were guaranteed to steer the comments away from the story.

Please remember this in the future, okay? It's not personal. 😊

Sceptic-Ari,
You said something very important there. About how your father tried but he never saw anything. I think when someone tries too hard they miss what could have been right before their eyes. Their focus is razor sharp, you know? But how many times have you read about someone's experience here and what they say 9 times out of 10 is that they caught an image right in the corner of their eye/vision? It's how it happens many times. Others have seen them right as they look up from doing something and then they just disappear. There are so many ways to sense a spirit that many times you don't see them as much as you hear them or sense them.
It also reminds me of a couple that has tried for years to have a baby. They try everything but can't seem to get it to happen. Then they finally give up, thinking they will just have to face the fact that they will never have children. Next thing you know, she's pregnant. All they needed to do was not have that be their main focus in life. If you just relax and things will come to you.

Dear Javelina,

You know I just had a banter with my father discussing the same that how none of them believed!
He said my Grandfather never ever discussed this thing ever again with any of them... Not even my Grandma! And he never saw anything out of the ordinary again...
My father tried but he never saw any... So he doesn't believe... Although he saw what everybody else saw at a haunted place πŸ˜• confused huh! I intend to publish a story about that too. 😐
They never discussed it; so there's no scenario where they either accept or reject anything about this incident...lol.
Strange huh!

Thanks for bein' so sweet to me...
Regards

Sceptic-Ari,

Aaaw! Bless your heart darlin'! You know how I can get, don't you? Well, I'll hold back now seeing as he won't be back for a while.

About the people who see things and still don't believe? I KNOW! That always gets me. I don't understand how someone can experience a paranormal event so clearly and turn around to say it isn't real. Who are they trying to convince with that? It can't be me, so they are simply sticking with what they've said for years because it's easier and safer I guess.
Seems silly if you ask me.

Thanks

Dear Javelina,

Thanks for appreciating... Coming from you it means a lot to me 😁

As for this lady/woman, I am sorry I know nothing more. No one in the family saw it again... Not even my Grampa... Although he took the same route again and again to and fro. As mentioned in my earlier comment, my father tried looking many times, alas.

And the most surprising part is... No one ever believed. I find that strangely funny and unexplainable in itself.

Thanks

Sorry Sceptic-Ari,
I didn't want to have a big ole debate on your thread. I know you have been trying to get this published for a while. If you want, I can ask Martin to delete it.

CONGRATULATIONS!

Dear Raftingirl,
😳 Thank You so much 😳
This is my first story to be published anywhere. I am so glad that you appreciate.
As for the superstition or paranormal occurrence... My father has walked through that place countless number of times in his teenage and youth, looking for a ghost or the 'ghost'; he has tried it at midnight, well after midnight, late evening, early evening and I know not how many other time of the day, yet he couldn't catch a glimpse. Guess he was unlucky πŸ˜†

Thanks
Regards

Maybe I needed to explain it better, huh? Give me a break, would ya? Instead of going off on the lecture series Professor, why didn't you simply ask me what I meant? I don't need to hear your pedigree pal, I'M OLD. Older than most of you here. So slow it down to my speed. I've only been aware of spirit since... Oh I don't know, LONG BEFORE YOU WERE BORN.
I was having a great day and a lovely evening. And I'm sorry if I took your lecture wrong. But there you have it butthead.
MAKE MY DAY!

Butthead,
Use your head this time. No one, especially me, is saying ALL female spirits are the same, or the woman in white. I didn't finish reading your comment and haven't yet read rooks. I was just so shocked at your interpretation of what I wrote I nearly fell down. What the hell are you smoking boy?!

all due respect Jav, but to label all female spirits dressed in white as one in the same is a bit... Well I don't know the word. Hasty on judgement, perhaps (if that's even spelt right lol).
I would like to assume that older generations (of which we might now possibly witness as spirits) may tend to dress in more plain clothes than that of todays society.
White, i'd throw a guess, being the most common colour, possibly more so if the spirit in question can be ''traced'' to a very early date in time
.
I may be totally wrong it's just a gutt feeling lol.
Being a 'paranormal investigator' for a fair while now, i've learnt about a fair few local-ish hauntings, famous or not, of which some I have been lucky enough to be granted investigations within the premises where they are apparantly haunting.
Others simply ''myths or famous legends/sitings'' etc, where there has been numerous ''grey ladies'' etc etc. But each having a different personality of which is believed to be linked to that area.

While this story did send shivers down my spine, and I would not like to argue against it being possible (should it be a actual paranormal event) for the apparant spirit to lure the grandfather away with bad intentions, in my opinion I think it's a bit much to assume that the woman in white is 1 spirit in itself, wherever it be reported.

I only wish to point that out because as I mentioned; like the 'woman in grey' stories (its mostly white and grey from the accounts reported in my experience, but blue and red sometimes too), that I have been made aware of while investigating 'famous haunted locations' or simply someones home that I have visited here in Kent-England, I have also been given the description of women in white, in different places, some of which have as good as been given an identity over the years of someone who used to live there/was murdered there/etc/etc.

Sorry, I mean no disrespect, and I would be just as interested to hear - as you are to find out- if you could find a link between the reports of the woman in white suggesting it being 1 in the same. I just have a big gutt feeling there won't be a link.
I've heard of spirits many times seemingly wanting to be followed, or blatently so, and again while I do not want to discredit the theory of it being harmful for anyone who does follow, I think steps of caution should be taken on such an assumption you made of the woman in white being either the same spirit, or a spirit who always has the same intentions.

Now I too, must apolagize, for probably taking up twice as much space as you did. Lol.

I've read a lot of your comments, and have full respect for your views.
Just had to point out my thoughts on that, and as its gone 5am here I have gibbered on and on to the point of going past my apolagy for going on and on. So i'll go to bed.

Thanks for this story, as long as no women in white is in my dreams in 25 minutes time, then i'm glad I caught it just before hitting the pillow.

All the best. ❀

Sceptic-Ari,
Well done! I like your telling of what your grandfather met up with that night. It seems in just about every culture there exists many sightings of the 'Woman in White'. Also, there seems to be the notion that if followed, she will lead to either great harm or a gruesome death. When you think about how many have seen these women, you know there has to be something to it. It makes me wonder if anyone has ever gathered the many reported experiences from around the world and studied them for their similarities. Is this woman universal? What is her true origin? What other names have been used to describe her? Has anyone ever died following her? If so, how? How far back can she truly be traced? It isn't just men that see her, it's everyone, old and young, male and female. What is her true purpose?
Sorry for taking up so much space, but this is a very fascinating entity. For some reason she has managed to be the most reported, yet least known, spirit on earth. I believe I'll do some research on this myself.
My curiosity is getting the best of me.
Thank you Sceptic-Ari. This one has got my attention... 😁

This was well written, Sceptic-Ari.
I'm gad that your Grandfather had someone to keep him away from the woman he saw. I've heard many superstitions of this variation. Maybe he didn't need to believe:)
