We rented and later shifted to a new house in a well known society in Thane, Mumbai in the year 2009. The house was 1000 sq. ft., too big for just the two of us (me and my husband). I was excited to arrange the house as per my desire. I was not working then, so had the whole day to myself to put up and arrange things on my own.. and I pretty loved doing it. On the second day since we shifted, as I was busy with arranging one of the bedrooms, I heard a loud noise, as if the pile of books I left in one of the rooms on a table fell to the ground with that loud �THUD� sound. I was not scared then�. but as I reached that room to pick up the fallen books.. I found that not even a single book had fallen. Now�. I was a bit scared. I tried to recollect what kind of noise had i actually heard.. but could not reach to a conclusion.
Okay, here I will give a brief description of the neighbors and the place where the society was. Of the four flats on my floor, only two were occupied (including mine). And the other occupied flat� I had not met anyone yet there. Now, the society is in a very good locality but on the backside, there is an huge empty land. Also there are eight buildings that are abandoned� actually the buildings are complete on the outside but looks incomplete or dilapidated on the inside. And these huge constructions were visible to us from all the windows in all the rooms in that house. Those buildings gave me creeps�. At times I have seen strange lights in the upper floors in one or sometimes two of them.
Okay, coming back to where I left my story earlier. Now, each day, I started hearing similar noises in the house. It all happened when I used to be alone. Sometimes I would even hear that peculiar sound made by a plastic toy. Anyways, I had ignored them all, since I did not think such things could ever happen to me�. Gradually, my husband noticed changes in my behavior. I had become very violent, often had terrible fights with him, always depressed, never smiling and very short tempered.
Things begin to come in control when I got a job after about 8-9 months. The new job was very close to where I lived. So I used to be home by 6 in the evening.
Now, I do not know the reason why, but then one fine day I heard a male voice whisper in my ear when I had dozed off on the couch watching the television. I was scared as the voice was so real and I knew I had not dreamed it. After this I decided to share this with my husband. I knew he would not believe me. But I did not want to wait till something really bad happened to me.
In the evening, when i told him about what had happened, he said he had had similar experiences a few days back. He was alone that night since I had stayed back at a friend�s place. He thought he heard strange noises and also felt that someone was watching him continuously. He was unable to sleep that night. That was the only night he was alone and had this experience. I told him that I have such experiences almost everyday.
Situation got worse when just 6-7 months back one night as we were winding up to go to sleep, I closed the bedroom door and got into bed. Just then, at that moment there was a loud bang on the bedroom door� and then another one� and one more.. It sounded that something was trying to get in� me and my husband were too scared to yell or cry or say anything� we held hands and waited for the door to open. The door did open� but slightly. We were not able to sleep that night. Still we did nothing. The next night again there were 4 distinct bangs on the door and this time it was even stronger and the door opened with a swing but there was nothing. That night my husband decided to spend the night in a nearby lodge or some place. I do not know what got into me and declared that I would not leave my house just because I am scared of something I cannot see. And we stayed back and awake the whole night.
After that night I started hearing a man- like voice whisper in my ear, an animal�s angry growling, someone screaming and running around the house and all this when I was wide awake and during day time.
We called a psychic for help.. He decided to visit the house and when he was there, he was finding it hard to breathe normal initially. He then blessed the house and told us that there is an evil spirit who was attached to me because I spent maximum time at home�. alone�.
And then the finale�.. I was home one day since it had rained heavily and transport was a problem. It was 4 in the evening�. I was surfing the internet when there was a power cut�.. I lazily lied down on the couch and was talking to my husband on the phone, when suddenly something grabbed my left ankle and lifted my leg and then tried to throw me off the couch. I froze and sat up straight� and then there it was�. I saw a shadow of a human- like figure on one of the walls�. It was moving back and forth in a weird manner�. I told my husband what I was seeing and crying at the same time� I hung up and took my purse and the house keys and moved out of there�.. I went straight to a Mall just because I wanted to be in a crowded place.
After that day, we stayed at my mom�s place till we could find a new rented house. Within 15 days we were back in that house only to pack our things and move out.
Today we are in a totally different place within Mumbai�. and I know that thing has moved in with us here as well. I am seeking help of a psychic now and somehow that thing seems to be getting weaker day by day.
Though sometimes, it makes me know of its presence, I am learning to face it� And yes, the psychic has helped me since that thing has not been able to touch me after that day. Its only some days that I feel it is around me and I also feel it getting powerless day by day.. and now I am not violent anymore and I manage to keep my temper under control. Also me and my husband have not quarreled once since we moved to the new place�.
I know this wont be a very interesting story for everyone� but I how it feels to face such things in real life� it is the most scariest thing one can experience ever�. but I have survived.
