July 13, 2009 11:18am CST
I refused to give money to a very old lady begger. I was getting into my car after shopping..... she was blessing me but when she realised that ain't gonna give anything to her.... the tone of her voice suddenly changed and she said.... " You are gonna die in this very car of yours cause of an accident... one month one month..thats all you have.." Now i don't even believe in god but this so called curse or warning by her really gave me goosebumps..... what if i really will die in an accident..... She sounded really terrifying.... should i avoid driving for a month..... or should i just ignore..... did anything super-natural ever happened with ya?

You might not believe in God, but He is in control of everything, and He has the last say, not the old woman. I think a lot of people have cursed the you-know-what out of me, and I'm still here, lol, but like I said, God has the last say.

It is good that you have found your peace in life shibham, I have found mine through Jesus. One day you and I will bow before Almighty God at the judgment, whether you like it or whether you believe it.

hi clutterbug, i don't think that i shall have to bow before an unknown power(?). thank or response. i know myself, i believe myself, i want to spent mylife without doing anything wrong. i know human, believe human. human is more powerful than god.

If you dont believe in God, why believe in a curse? She is just a crazy old lady who got mad because you wouldnt give her money. Dont dwell on it. The more you think about it the more chances you have of actually making it happen. Not becasue of a "curse" but because you are constantly thinking about it.

What I think is, if she really had some power to curse you, why did she give you one month? Only to make you scared, and eventually forget about it before the end of the month. If she had said two says, for instance, you could have just decided not to drive for a couple of days, as you suggested, and then go back to her saying "Hi, I'm still here". This way, she knows you are scared but you can't avoid driving your car.

hi,harshrosicky! don't take it seriously. you absolotely have the right whether give her money or not,so you did nothing wrong.she lost her temper and fiercely cursed you.in fact,I regard she was cursing this world instead of you.tough world and hard life made her bark,not you. have a nice day!

You posted this 2 months ago and you are still here...right? I think she was just some crazy old lady and probably on alot of meds. Its sad because probably she really did need someone to be helping her and stopping her from being like this in public. My mom...she was on so many meds and acted so crazy before she passed. One day...she wanted me to go get her some pot. Now this is a woman that was so so very against it in all my growing up. She threatened to walk downtown and look for it herself if me or my brother did not get her some. The meds they give some of these people are really harsh....she was not predicting your future...just an old lady that really should not have been on her own.

harshrosicky well if had been me I would have given her something as most older people do not easily beg from any]one so it cou ld be she really was in bad straits. I do believe in G od and Jesus Christ, but not much in the supernatural. I think you had best just forget about this silly curse. Unless you really believed in it it cannot hurt you anyway.Next time you see her or any other old lady that has been driven to begging give them what you c an. it will be good for your soul

I can understand why you feel concerned or scared or tensed or whatever you want to call it.... its a normal reaction. But you should have been concerned when you would have given her money and still she would have cursed you. It would have been scary. General thoughts would have risen...... why did she curse me even when i gave her money. But as she cursed you when you didn't pay her... it was just a curse out of anger or something..... THere was no need for me to reply and tell you this because its been two months now and i know there was no such accident and you are still alive and that car of yours is also fine.... this reply is for others who may have experienced the same......

Curses can have a hold over you if you let it. So the best thing to do is to forget what happened and go on with your life. I would like to share an experience my bestfriend had with a beggar though. While my best friend was walking in the street, a beggar, with no apparent reason just approached her and kick her in the leg. She was so scared that she ran away. After that she would always be apprehensive or scared whenever she sees a beggar.

hi harshosicky, of course you should ignore it and carry on driving, it's utter nonsense. Blessings turning to curses is just laying a guilt trip on you for not handing over the cash. When I used to work in the city I was sworn at quite viciously as I left the train station early one morning, by a male 'Big Issue Seller' who I refused to give money too. Problem was he was in the same place every morning and there weren't many people around at that time. I ended up having to take a longer route out of the station each morning to avoid him as I hate confrontational situations and being sworn at by a beggar is not my favourite way to start the day.

You shouldnt believe the curse, or change your lifestyle just over a few months. Shes just an angry old (Drunk?) who got angry because you wouldnt give her some cash. Dont worry about it.

Well, this happens a lot here at our place. But really speaking, no begger has ever cursed me or any of my friends that I know that badly. I remember the time when I and my girlfriend were in a park where there was this kid who was begging. She was saying things like, "You'll have good looking smart kids, You'll have a big house and will get married soon.." and stuff like that. But when we refused to give her any money, she was like "Your relationship will fail and you'll never have kids.."and all. I wasn't freaked out as such, but I was very annoyed. As for your story, lemme just tell you one thing. If you'd have given her the money, she wouldn't have said so. So live your life to the fullest. Don't believe these people. Just be good and kind to others (and that is what we must do always !). take care buddy... And yeah, A supernatural thing hasn't yet happened to me. But I believe in God and And He does listen to my prayers if they are from the bottom of my heart...

No you shouldn't waste tie thinking about it because if something has to happen it will happen without someone even cursing you.So don't think about it.The more you think the more likely you will get an accident

All you got to do is focus and drive carefully. Don't think what that old lady said while you're driving! Don't worry too much about it, according to what my mother thought me, curse will only happen if you did something wrong! You didn't do any harm to anyone then why worry! To just satisfy your mind, I suggest you to buy some food and give some other beggers. Just think that 'what you did is not on purpose' at any cost! Simple!!

i believe in curses but i dont think that many people have the power to really make them come true.. i think if anything the "cursed" person may accidentally make them come true by being so paranoid after hearing it that they accidentally bring it on themselves.. if she does have the talent/power to curse i think she wouldnt be so poor.. i would think she would curse some one to die that she was in the will of

Please don't mind these kind of things. You are not responsible for a beggar's life. There is no rule that you should give her money. This is a trick amoung people. I have seen beggars doing this. Don't take it into account. Those curses won't do anything. There are a lot of people who are into begging discarding their responsibilities. They are taking this as an opportunity to earn money without doing any work.

I think that there was something wrong with that little old lady! That wasn't very nice of her! You are not obliged to give her anything and she turns around and does a thing like that? Well, if there's any truth to karma, her curse will return and cause her problems. I don't believe in curses and cursing though. Just carry on driving I guess! Andrew

Hi Harshrosicky, I don't believe in curses, I do however believe that when your time's up that's it. So if I were you I'd do as much living and driving in the month as possible. I think it was very wrong of this lady to do that to you, maybe she was just mentally unhinged.

I don't think so her curse would be effective on you.if you still think that give money to needy and old people , you would get peace of mind. It is not a matter of worrying just forget that incidence. You can diminish effect of that curse by doing more good work, give food to begger who sit outside the temple of "Shri Sai BABA"and get more blessing than her curse.If you really want good feeling and want to forget that incidence then , do it.. happy Mylotting!
