I have never seen a ghost . Neither my parents nor brothers ever saw one . But they believe in the existence of such thing. But parents have many stories to tell about ghosts. But I dare say there is nothing like ghosts or paranormal . I am not claiming to be Scientifically oriented person . But ,I have never met a single person who claims to see a ghost in his or her life . I have walked through lonely and abandoned lanes at midnights, stayed alone overnight in abandoned houses( of course sleepless out of fear) in so called "bad" places . But never have I been scared by any ghostlike creatures . Of course , one incidence could have been interpreted as ghost chasing me , had I not gathered enough courage to disprove it on the spot . I was walking back to my house at about 1-30 am . It was 45 minutes walk along a short cut road normally abandoned ( unused at night ) . No street light . From a certain point , I became aware of someone/something coming behind me . I ignored it and in fact i liked it-better to have a unknown company rather than walk alone.But somehow I noticed that the foot step was maintaining a constant distance from me -sometimes disappeared and then resumed .But no feeling of a physical existence. Fear was mounting within me . At a point of time I found myself sweating , virtually helpless and I almost surrendered to the invisible follower . But , at that very moment I readied for the last option - face the follower . I turned and saw nothing . That shocked me . But I stopped for a few moment and called it , challenged it empty handed. But nothing happpened . I resumed my walk and the follower started too, behind me . I became sure - either it was my emagination or it was equally afraid of me . I stopped to urinate beneath a bamboo bush . None appeared before me .However ,when I started again the sound of foot step was no more . I was relieved . But after a few minutes walk it again started haunting me . I became sure that the sound was with myself and it must be echoed against the walls or other objects along the road . I examined my body and found that the open jacket was rubbing against the polythene bag that I was carrying making a sound. I zipped the jacket . The touch between the bag and jacket vanished . Again I opened the jacket and let the sound be coming again . I found that the same sound again came where there were walls along the road and vice versa. Tell me , if I did not disprove my fear, would not I thought I was being followed by ghosts? N.B.

SOmetimes I feel there is a ghost in my house. Not sure why. Not sure when it comes around. But randomly I hear things an wonder what or who they are. I have never seen anything that would tell me that there is a ghost. But I hope its just coincedence. I hope not to find a ghost in my house. THat would freak me out and make me want to move away into a new house never occupied by people. Hope this helps. -Eric

I never saw anything weird like ghost either. I never met a person who claims to have seen a ghost. My dad did say he saw a glowing man walking in the sky.

I don't know if I believe in ghosts or the paranormal, but let me tell you what happened to me when I was about 13 years old, and you come to your own conclusion... The apartment where I lived with my Mom had a cornfield in the back. About every night at 11 pm I took my Rottweiler for her last walk through our park, along my highschoool and back alongside the cornfield. Well, this one time when I was almost finished with the doggie-walk and came by the cornfield, just like someone started a sirene, all the dogs in the neighborhood started howling. It was wild, and never happened before. My dog's hair stood up, my hair stood up, and even my dog started howling - joining this eerie concert. I stood as still as I could and started looking around for whatever. First, I couldn't see anything, but than, when I looked to the middle of the cornfield, I saw something white shimmery and still somewhat translucent coming up from the field. I thought it might be a white dove or something like that, but I really wasn't sure. Well, this thing came up, flew a little through the air and than disappeared. After it was gone, the dogs stopped howling almost all at once. So, I didn't think much of it anymore and began my way home. I told my Mom about it, who also heard those howlings, but she just shrugged it off as maybe some animal must have ticked the dogs off. The next day, in the afternoon when I got out of school, there were ambulances, police and all sorts of cars around the cornfield. So I stopped to see what was going on. Well, I talked to one police officer, and he told me that they have found the body of a little girl in the cornfield, exactly by the place where I saw this white shimmery thing coming up. And later, I found out she was killed at about exactly the time the dogs started howling. Now, what did I see? Was it the little girl's ghost? It wasn't human, I know that. After that incident, the farmer mowed down his cornfield and nothing has ever grown there since.

I have not but a friend few days told me of something very strange. She is not a religius type nor does she belive in ghosts or anything like that. She was in the back yard puting out the washing and her husband was at the front (only one way to go at the back and it is just infront of where he is siting) the husband is talking to the neighbour looking over the fence under which is the drive way to the back of the house. As my friend was puting the clothes on the line she felt like someone was watching her she turned around and checked but saw no one. So she continued. After a minute or so she saw some movement to her left but when she turned there was no one there. She yelled out to see where her son was he was inside having a drinka nd as she turned she saw this boy about 3-4 years old dressed in a singlet and underpants and bear foot. She didnt recognese the child and she thouth it must be from around there to be dressed like that. So she said something like hi dear and the child just stood there watching her. So she continued doing what she was doing and when she turned around saw the boy still standing there. She called her son (who is 4) and said come outside I think there is somene here that wants to play with you. The child smiled and ran to the front of the house. When she finished she went at the front and said "who was that child" to which both her husband and neighbour said what child. She explained and they both told her there was no such child and that they would have seen anyone go there. She didnt belive them so went out and saw her neighbour and asked if she saw a little boy get out of their place and she said no.
