It was a usual day for me after the office at home. I generally reached home late and after reaching home had dinner with my parents. They were extremely delighted to have dinner with me. After spending some time with them, I went to my bed at 10 o’ clock. I slept alone in my room.
That day something was unusual in my room. When I laid down on my bed, I felt as if a pair of eyes were staring at me from the open door of my room. It was a very different sensation. I still tried to sleep and even slept until when my sleep broke. I got up from the bed, put on my spectacles and my slippers and went straight to my parent's room. It was 12 o’clock in the night and they were sleeping soundly.
I then turned around towards the drawing-room and switched on the lights. I cross-checked the latch of the main door and the windows. Both were closed.
The serenity and quietness of the moment were such that I liked it very much. I then moved towards my room closed the latch of the door and switched on the lights. I felt I should read some book. There was absolute silence in the room and I was reading my book.
Soon I started feeling sleepy. It was now time for me to sleep. I removed my spectacles and switched off the lights of the room. I generally covered myself with a quilt and slept. I tried to close my eyes but to my surprise, I again felt a pair of eyes looking at me from the side of the door. It was as if an entity belonging to some other planet had landed just to glare at me. I found it difficult to sleep. All kinds of haunting memories starting appearing before my eyes in a flashback. There appeared no alternative except to take the name of God and try to sleep. I succeeded and woke up the next morning.
The next day while traveling in Delhi Metro I happened to recollect my night experience. I was certain of the fact that there was so physical entity in the room. Perhaps it was a vision or ghost which simply kept staring at me and did nothing else. It struck me that this could be an indication of some future event about to happen in my life. But till now I was clueless about its existence and its intention. The vision did not intend to harm me or come closer to me but just kept staring at me. That glare was prominent.
I thought of revealing this incident to my parents but refrained from doing so thinking that there was no evidence to substantiate my fear. The queer feeling which happened to arise in me due to this incident was difficult to express. I was the only one to feel and could not express it. This episode continued for 4-5 days and suddenly the seventh day of the week that pair of eyes was gone. I could feel that the vision had disappeared from the house and our lives. It was indeed a heart-rending experience which instilled fear and horror. That day I slept soundly after several perturbed nights.
