Essay On A Ghost
The belief in manifestations of the spirits of the dead is widespread, dating back to animism or ancestor worship in pre-literate cultures.
I had gone to the village to visit my uncle. There I heard the story of the haunted cremation ground. No villager dared to go near the place after dark as everyday a ghostly woman was seen laughing and roaming there.I was very curious to visit the place as I did not believe in ghosts. The next morning I went with my cousin and looked around the place where the ghost was seen. I decided there and then to visit the place at night.After having our dinner, when everybody had gone to sleep, I along with my cousin quietly slipped out of bed and left for the cremation ground. We took a tourch and a stick with us and hid behind one of the trees in the cremation ground.At midnight we saw a woman dressed in white with her hair hanging lose and a human skull in her hand laughing and uttering some words as she walked. We could not understand what she said but the whole scene frightened us. At first I wanted to run away but after gathering up my courage, I decided to face the ghostly women. As she passed us pounced on her from the back. She tried to attack us as we were two, we overpowered her. She tried to run away but could not escape. My cousin recognised her. He was astonished as she was their neighbour Kapoori.We brought her back to the village. When the villagers beat her, she agreed to reveal the truth. She had done all this on the advice of a tantrik. The village tantrik had told her that if she wanted a child, she should regularly visit the cremation ground at midnight with a human skull in her hand for a month. Not only this, the tantrik had also taken a heavy sum of money from her to perform certain rites.villagers handed over the tantrik to the police and were very grateful to us, for we had helped them get rid of the ghost.
