Ghost Tales and Shadows Walk

The ghosts I grew up with were the souls or spirits of deceased persons and they would often appear in form of a translucent shapes and also, sometimes, as life-like visions – but they would definitely scare the living . It turns out the stories I heard and read and watched are not so different from the traditonal beliefs in India.

But: Whereas I see the spine-chillers more lighthearted, the people I walked with through the Delhi night around Qutub Minar seemed to have a quite firm believe. Every time they told me about a paranormal phenomena, I didn’t hear any doubt in their voice. It might be true, that in India, mystery, fact & fiction intermingle more than in the society I had been brought up.
