This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 15; the fifteenth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.
(I had been participating in Blog A Ton for last two months and this time the theme is changed, we got to write on a picture. Since, I do not find much for my imagination on this picture, as I think it shows a spooky old railway station, and nothing much is there for my interpretation of the image, I am writing about one such real place in India which fits the bill.)
In Purulia, West Bengal, there is a station which had been abandoned for almost 45 years. It was a haunted railway station. There was a rumour that the ghost of a woman clad in white saree dances there at midnight.... spooky actually!
A villager saw her and died in a few days, people believe so. Railway staff were scared of getting posted there.
What I feel is that movies and serial, which show such scary stuff create an image in our minds, and we quickly relate to such stuff.
I understand that in 2007, rail service has been started here.
Really cannot comment on what is real and what is imaginary, honestly, it scares me quite a lot! A lot of studies on paranormal occurrences and behavior is done worldwide, it kind of makes of think, will man some day find this one out too?
Children like to watch such programmes out of curiosity (and later feel scared to go to toilet alone!) even I have seen the most haunted places of the world kind of a programme on Discovery/History channel. We do like to have that excitement, but does not that really leave you confused, as to what is a soul? Is there any life after death? Are there really some guardian angels? Do ghosts exist? Have you ever experienced any such thing? Do write... but don't scare me, right! :)
