    “One fine night, my brother-in-law, his friends and I decided to go camping in the woods surrounding Pune. The unexpectedly weird journey began with a flat tire, followed by spilled drinks and a soaked backseat and a broken iphone. We didn’t realize these incidents, back to back, were signs. After all the hurdles, we reached the spot to hike to reach to our camping site. Since, I was with three locales, I didn’t worry my brains out about the safety issues. When we stepped into the woods, an eerie feeling creeped into me. Strangely so, the forest was death still. No sounds of animals or chirping of birds. I thought I was just being paranoid. But right then I heard a soft whimpering of a child. Suddenly an apparition appeared in front of us who had a body of a child but who seemed to be aged 100 years or so. Deathly pale features, blood-shot eyes, wrinkled thin skin and grey long shabby hair. He started spewing angry words in some undecipherable language. When we tried to scamper away, we lost our footing and fell down the dirty forest bed. With stark clarity, I saw my companion, who was nearest to the ghost-child being held and torn apart limbs to limb. I don’t remember much after that. I must have succumbed to darkness. When I came to in the morning, I saw my brother-in-law was trying to wake up his torn up friend, who was unresponsive. Somehow he came to his senses and realized that he was unable to move his arms and legs. When we took him to the ER, we got to know that his limbs have become senseless due to severe muscle damage. I never believed that there were haunted places in Pune, but that incidence changed it for me. Till this day, no one believes us. But only we know, what we actually went through that doomed night.” – An account of Rakhshit Joshi, Senior Prop Consultant.
