  1. Ghost Amazing winter

    If anybody asked me what is the sweetest thing of the winter, the answer surely would-be to lie under the cloth made by a torn cloth of either paternal or maternal grandmother. Of course, with the present of ‘Her-Excellence’ and definitely with the appearance of thousands of stories! The stories must have some relations of ‘Bangoma-Bangome’, the mythology of Ramayana, Mahabharata, or the most charming fact related to ‘true ghost’. I heard, on some TV channel, after 11 pm, some (?) the real stories of spirits are being focused. It is my bad luck that without such reality, we would like to shake with fear only with ‘hearing-experiences’. What would be wrong if any spirit would come within the empty place of me and the lap of my ‘Grand-Excellency’!

    You may not believe that within this time I have memories at least hundred of stories of Dhruba, Pralladha, Abhimannyu, Lobe-Kudsh(?the first clone boy of this world) and so-on. I can tell you the ten names of violent weapons applied in the war of Ramayana and Mahabharata. However, my grandmother never wants to tell the fighting <> killing <> war histories. If I tell her to repeat, she always repeats the truthfulness of Bhakta-Pralladh, Sabitri, etc.

    Now come to reality, I have heard, one ‘Fish-Ghost’ or ‘Mandu-Bhut / before 40 or 50 years used to live in our local market of fish. Mandu-Bhuts are generally female spirit. If a female died with the craving of fishes, and if not done with the following ritual customs, its unsatisfactory sole, became ‘Bhut’ after one year. This type of spirit has a special quality to appear in both day and night. It follows mostly the women with unbinding hair, cloth without iron key and purchased putrid fishes. As the mosquito does not love a French-scent, the ghost also dislikes fresh fishes, but if not available, it eats fresh one with some digestive as a decayed rat!

    Nirmala pisi, my caretaker aunty was also attacked by a ‘Veil-bhut’, which appears from the jungle of banana tree. N’pisi did not know, what is called as fear, so she runs behind the Bhut on grinding her 32 pairs of teeth (practically a few were the only present). However, from that night, no further appearances of ‘Veil-Bhut’ happen there.

    Alo-Bhut or illumine bhuts are also dangerous. They show a typical attracting light to the person (newly married girls) came out of home at mid-night. If anybody follows the light, it quickly brought her near to a pond and then trying to push within the water.

    Our garden uncle had had some very dangerous true story of a ghost. In the British period, he used to carry on his income by the process of a pickpocketing. One day earn some money from a pocket of a red-faced man. Within a few hours, he was arrested and punished for jail in Andaman. However, the ship was destroyed in the sea. Uncle by any means he entered within the jungle of Sunderban. There he saw a broken house. He took shelter within it. Nevertheless, within a minute ghost of an old king came. On suppressing his fear, uncle started to chat with him. King had shown many valuable jewels in his pocket. At late night, uncle pick-pocked his material and started to shout RAM—RAM violently. In the morning, Uncle fled away and made a ritual work for the king in Gaya, but on that same night, another ghost pickpockets his everything!!

    Anyhow, her ‘Krishi-Bhut’ or Culti-Ghost’ stories are more charming. Those ‘Krishi – Bhuts’ are usually sole of lone-crashed cultivators, demanded self-death with pesticide. No ritual process allows them to rebirth. They have to do their unfinished works in the field’s era after era. However, while I asked, where the ghosts of Singur were going, after the established of TATA? No reply emerged except pouring out of some water from her dim eyes.

    The bare fact is in those fields again the cultivation of ‘world high-quality potato’ began and the ghost of my paternal great grandfather mother, get a job further!

    Medicine, to a quiet-off evil spirit (Bhut)

    First placed some Charcoal cake on cow dung and set fire. The Charcoal cakes have to be prepared by charcoal of Azadirachta /neem-wood or Charcoal collected from burning place at new moon night with extract of rice(Bhater fan) and wood dust. Then set fire on charcoal cakes and placed some small pieces of tarmac (Known anti-cancerous), mustard seed (anti-allergic thus helps to rebuild the immune system) and covers of the egg of lizards / Tiktiki or rotten egg (animal calcium once prepared by nature to protect her creation!). The smoke of this preparation is sufficient to take forceful rebirth to the evil spirits, wanted to remain on the trees!. Medicine prescribed by Aud-Bhuta-Nirankarananda.

  2. you all have a lot to learn from Indonesia🇮🇩 , in our country ghosts are no longer feared but are only used as toys to get money from YouTube 😂😂😂👍

  3. A ghost story!

    On the night of Halloween, the ghost of the dead will walk the land, all see through and green! One may be seen here, and one over there! Some one may even try to catch one, because of a Devilish dare! Only if the Moon is right will they see them in the dead of night! If one smiles and looks at you, then you may be a walking ghost too! If you cover your face with your hands because your not dead, but afraid, then the seed of fear in your mind, the smiling ghost has laid! When you finally open your eyes to look around, the ghost will be gone, and within it's grave, from then on will you look, never again to be found! Ah, ha, ha, ha,ha! Ah, ha, ha, ha, ha!

    Happy Halloween!

  4. "So Sad,Some People that Pass on are not at rest,They feel they need to finish something,Or they are grieving over someone they loved,Either way when a place is haunted maybe they were killed and it was never solved,There are a lot of reasons a Spirit would not move on,They can not get rest until they are vindicated,I know the supernatural is real,God Bless these hurting souls and let them move on!!!"

  5. Why don't "ghosts" appear in the daytime? Why do "ghostly" things that happen in the daytime only happen as invisible entities? Everywhere I go, I challenge "ghosts" to appear to me…and nothing. This is in Virginia! I'd say I'm more likely to meet a black white supremacist than a "ghost".
