As a man of technology, Soumok likes to work with tangible things that can be explained through science. However one night in October, Soumok had an absolutely paranormal experience that involved his father, his newly born child, and himself. For then on Soumok gained a new perspective on things.

I inched across the apartment, oh so carefully. One wrong move and the baby would have startled and I would have had to start the whole process of bedtime all over again. As I gently placed the baby in the crib, I realized how fortunate I was because I was in India and there was not the threat of children ringing my doorbell for candy.  When I tiptoed back to the bed where my wife laid, I predicted that sleep was temporary thing for my child. Regardless, I had a long day ahead tomorrow and I needed to get some sleep.

Unfortunately only a few hours after I made my prediction, something woke up my child. When I walked out of my room, I felt myself being pulled to look down the hallway and there was something there.

“Hello is anyone there…. Hello?” There was no response. I thought that maybe I was delusional from the lack of sleep, but I decided to try again.

“Hello is anyone there?” Again there was no response. I decided check my eyes. I took off my glasses and rubbed the lens with equal pressure, and then I removed the possible sleepy sand from both my eyes. Once I finished this process I looked again.

It was my father… he was wearing a collared shirt and white trousers (an outfit very common for him) and he was about the age he was when he had died three years. I tried to call out to him, but all I got was a mouthed effort that had voice behind it.

The only thing I had the power to do was rub eyes, and I did this once more. After I had once again rubbed my eyes, my father was gone and I rushed over to my baby who was fast asleep.

A few months later we held a ritual to make sure that my father’s soul passed on, but I had a feeling that he had finally passed on after he disappeared from my sight. Perhaps all he needed to be at peace was to see his grandchild.

 

“Hello is anyone there…. hello?”
