Default Spooky Experiences : Share them here

this might be a very exciting threat for everybody and a bit scary too

i would like people to share their experience or whatever they have heard about ghosts while driving

i have heard two stories

1st ...when i was a mid i heard my uncles talking about this experience...about 15 yrz ago from now...3 brothers..1 of them my uncle and his other two brothers...were going somewhere...some dark lane...city was not developed well....some places were too dark and like jungle ...trees all around...
there was nobody around and they were driving..it was a fiat and three fat brothers were sitting in front...on their way while driving..they saw this chic ..in 20's or early 30's looking kinda female...waiting for somebody to give her a lift or something i dont know...they took her in the car...she wanted to get dropped somewhere ...some funny place which does not exist...these three men were going straight..it was out of mumbai actually ...thats why i said that even the city was not developed so this place was complete dark and trees and all..there was just one straight road...no lights on streets...they were all shut and going straight..suddenly the girl asked them to stop the car and she wanted to get down at some place which was also completely dark and she could go nowhere from there....a "kabristan" which was 15 minutes walk from the place she got dropped...but they had already passed that kabristan ...she asked them to stop the car...they stopped..she got down said thanks..started walking back...these men were finding it funny...like spoke some crap about the female and laughed...the man who was driving just looked from the side mirror...and he her feet facing him but shew as walking the other way...no need to mention about how they felt that time..you guys will definately understand...still sometimes i feel it cannot happen but i have heard it from my uncle once and then second time too i heard from his brother...when i had gone for dinner...

2nd thing i heard recently....there is a place between lucknow and kanpur...as i go to kanpur once in three four years....i heard of this thing...no airport in kanpur so go to lucknow and drive to kanpur...between these to places..there is a village kind of place named unnav..u guys must have heard of it...it is said and believed and noticed that ...whenever there is no moon...known as "amavas ki raat" ...it is very risky to drive and pass that area...because every time when there is this amavas...1 car has a very dirty accident becuase of which all the passengers lose their lives...all the people in up prefer not getting out for a drive these nights..and even if they get out..they make sure they do not pass that area..
this is 100% true

mods : if this is a wrong post for this section..please shift it to shifting gears...as i really want to know about this..if anybody has faced anything like this...dont delete it please
also ..i have heard that on malabar hill if you see a person walking alone in white...is a ghost...im sure this is crap but how many of you guys have heard of this

This happened to my wife and father-in-law in 2003. The road was NH-17 between Udupi and Mangalore. They were coming back from some function late at night. My wife was the front passenger and her dad was driving. There were 2-3 older women in the back including my mother-in-law.

At one place my FIL suddenly slowed the car because he saw something crawling on the road, figured it was some animal. As he closed the gap, it became clear that it was a human skeleton. Both he and my wife looked at each other and looked at it again and it was clear that the bare bones skeleton was crawling across the road and it finally got into the bush by the side of the road. They didn't inform the women in the back who were busy talking, and just continued driving in silence.

It could have been somebody playing pranks by dragging the skeleton by a thin dark rope. However, that must have been a scary moment.

Might be. I remember the guys in our street used to fill the tea packets with mud, completely pack it back & throw it on the busy street to watch who is that guy picking it up.

My experience:

My house is located just one compound away from the burial ground. During my school days, I have made a room for me on the open terrace with hut. It has got no doors and just a cot.

One night, I felt as if someone entered the room, sat on me & pressing my neck to the core. I was trying different thing to pull that ghost or whatever it may be to the floor. I was shouting to the maximum, but my voice is not at all coming out. After struggling for 5-10 mins, I woke up with a jerk. I could realize that was a dream, but my whole body was soaked in sweat.

I had heard some of my friends have similar experience & some believe it was the act of the ghost, but I don't.

Any doctors (psychologist) out there in the forum who could throw some light

well this is not a ghost story or anything , but something really scary though.

it was i think almost 6 years back when everyone was out of tow except me and my bro . 4 of our common friends and we left for lonavla at 2 a.m. in my sierra . we reached and found no shop open for fudge (which was appently the reason we even went to lonavla) , a friend suggested we while away our time in some place close by , some air force camp or something . he basically knew of this spot where we could go and chill for a while and wait till dawn . area was extremely dark , no road lights , we finally reached the spot and what do we see there right under the tree where we were going to sit for a while ? A blue maruti 800 parked in the middle of nowhere with a someone sitting alone in the backseat and with 2 thermoses on the roof .
we were all clueless as what to do , we all wanted to solve the mystery but everyone of us feared even getting out of the car . we observed the car for more than 20 minutes but there was not even a single movement by the guy . finally some bollywood struck guy decided to toss a coin to decide whether to approach the car or not , and the toss indicted to move away . well themystery yet remains . . .

okay apart from the general scary/spooky experiences that i've had...

1) my 10th standard results
2) my wedding day

here's something more...

at the time of our engineering, around 1990, a group of us decided to go to matheran - after spending the weekend, 8/9 of us decided to walk down to nerul below in the dark...

so we ventured - as usual, at the start with a lot of mirth, merriment and a few beers - but not me, i always prefer to be sober at times like these.

eventually, we lost our way - and our torches were not bright enuff to give any kinda guiding light and soon the group was in disarray, arguing and fighting over which way to take.

we decided to go straight ahead...after a few moments, my blood froze - a ghostly white female figure was blocking the way and i yelled (or whispered?) in fright. strangely no one else saw this ghost...but i was petrified so much, that the group got spooked as well. finally, we decided to stay put for the whole night - literally huddled together in a tight group - looking the other way.

in the morning - and at the first dawn of light - we ventured towards where i saw this 'ghost' - and much to our surprise, just 2/3 feet ahead in that direction the road ended and there was a sheer drop of 100s of feet into the valley below!

my friends didn't thank me enuff - that was 1 ghost that saved our lives.

and the crowning glory - later when i narrated this story at home, my mom says to me - when i was born - the umbilical cord was wrapped around me in the shape of a snake - which according to the old folks meant that i could see ghosts - so i should not dare to be awake anytime bet 12-3am...

now is that inspiration for m n shyamalam's sixth sense or what - " i see dead people"

you probably saw Louisa's ghost. i forget her full name and the legend but this is a pretty common occurence. she's the one Louisa's Point is named after. some love story gone bad during the days of the british empire. people claim to have seen her at various areas in Matheran.
she's known to lure people off cliffs, or maybe she's just trying to save them........
