The air was festive all around as Diwali was close. The time of the year for people to celebrate yet another year end. The streets are filled with lights and decorations, people seem happy & relaxed in general.Everyone is beautifully dressed in traditional attire and children are found making the most of their time off school & studies.
I was staying in a hostel during my engineering in Mumbai. For Diwali , I decided to visit a close family friend. Their daughter Anjali, was a very close friend of mine. Next day was Diwali, she had called 2 more of her friends home for stay over. We were having a great time, when suddenly the plan of playing planchet( calling a spirit) began! I was not keen on indulging & voiced my reluctance, but the other 3 seemed pretty determined to try their luck and see if they can call a friendly spirit, who will foresee our problems & predict our future.
Amidst the general fun & frolic going on that evening, I felt confident nothing would come out of this, so I agreed to join, but as we were calling out in the dark, I felt terrified of that risk of something actually happening!!
At midnight, the room was pitch dark with one candle & one coin on a paper marked with numerical digits 0 to 9 , alphabets A to Z & two blocks encircled with YES & NO written separately .We sat together in a circle , one finger just above the coin( not touching) & called out Friendly spirit passing by , please stop by.. continuously till the coin moved.The coin moved & the eldest in our group , Himanshee , took charge and spoke Are you here to speak to us , please reply by going to YES or NO .The coin did move to yes!!!
I still wasnt sure, I felt Himanshee might be slightly touching the coin and moving it herself, though I could see clearly none of our fingers were touching the coin but still, none of this seemed believable! He was Chris from England, an investment banker who died in an accident. Chris spoke about himself through the alphabets on the paper with the coin moving at a speed difficult to follow.He was willing to answer any questions we had about our lives. I sat quiet initially finding it all, a little too difficult to accept & participate.
When Himanshee & Anjali, coaxed me to ask anything I had in mind, they told me to talk to him through my mind, not aloud, I decided this would be a fair chance to understand whether any of this was true. I asked in my head Tell me the total aggregate percentage of my graduation.The coin did move to a percentage value!. I asked about whether my bond with Anjali would remain the same for the years to come, got a reply stating things might change by the time either of us gets married. When I further asked about my relationship was a true & loyal one from my partners side as well , reply was it was. Whether my partner and I had a future together , reply came Looking at the present scenario most probably , things might turn in our favour All of these were very personal questions that I did not ask out loud but only through my mind , and was getting relevant answers from the coin moving rapidly at the alphabets framing sentences for me.He answered patiently all of my friends questions and was honest in stating , if things will not turn out not as they look today, especially in the relationship Q/A , as all of us were keen to know where our lives headed with our boyfriends.
Today, as I look back at all the questions I had asked, all the answers did turn out true , from my equation with Anjali to value of my percentage aggregate at my graduation( which was shockingly accurate!!) Also, by Gods grace things did turn in our favour for me and my husband.
The one thing that struck was his message before he was leaving, he said Please dont consider my answers as the final outcome of your life ahead. Ultimately your fate is in your hands and you can change your destiny.
I would leave it for the readers to judge and accept this incident as a prank played by Himanshee on us or an actual experience. I would have easily labelled it as unrealistic and impossible experience ,if I hadnt asked questions through my mind & received such apt replies.Though I have seen it all through my own eyes , I sometimes still wonder whether what happened that fateful night was real or unreal?
