The world has drastically changed for MOHAN. He left his corporate job to pursue his career as a writer. He takes online maths classes for aspiring students for engineering entrance. LIFE in 2021 is indeed a new dimension. No reality exists in the mind. Everything is a matter of virtual reality. Since 2020 things are turning evil. People are dying in the streets trying to migrate. Last week only disturbing news of a bus accident that killed 25 kids who are going back to their homes. MOHAN resigned from his BANKING job 1 month back and now fully focussing on online training and his horror novel which he is writing. He has enough savings from his job he did for 6 years and online tuitions which he does has a pretty decent inflow of income. MOHAN loves teaching, especially poor underprivileged kids. For the last 5 months, he is teaching this group of 7 kids of class 6 without any tuition fees. Their parents are daily wage earners in a leather factory. They are daily wage earners, income holders. They do not have any fixed-job, fixed income. On a part-time basis, they work in construction sites, high-rise buildings. But their children deserve a good life. That is the reason he tries his best to provide them education, free of cost. Their parents work hard for less wages but their kids might get a better life. For the last 5 days no trace of those kids coming for online classes until today he gets a video call. It is Rajesh on the other side, " Hello sir how are you, happy teachers day sir ." MOHAN is a bit annoyed, "you guys are so irresponsible, no trace of any one of you. Where are the rest? "  Suddenly Smita another student joined, " Happy teacher,s day Sir" MOHAN is a bit angry, " SMITA I thought you are a serious, mature girl what happened to you." SMITA replied, " Sir today is teacher's day please do not get angry " Another video call request came, it is Sohini another girl of the batch. " You notorious kids have planned to join after 6 days and that too on such a day when I cannot scold you. This is a smart move but I am super pissed off. "  Sohini replied, " Sir we all love you, and a matter of fact you too love us so you can never be angry with us. " In the meantime, Rohan and Suchismita joined the video call. " Sir let's not study today, let's celebrate something virtually. Please tell us a ghost story. We all know you are writing a horror novel.


All of a sudden MOHAN heard a knocking on the door, he is about to rise up and open the door when Sohini replied," Please sir do not open the door. It is dangerous outside. " MOHAN is shocked and surprised. He could not figure out what to do when MOHAN heard her mom calling him by his name," MOHAN O MOHAN open the door son. I am waiting for so long." Suchismita cried out, " Please Sir do not reply on this call. That is the worst mistake you can do right now. This is the call of the evil NISHI. It is an evil entity, the force that can mimic any voice and can call you. Once you respond to it your soul will be trapped and taken away. " The sound of her Mother is very clear and precise. " MOHAN O MOHAN" That is not possible as MOHAN remembered her mom died 2 years back in an accident. All of a sudden MOHAN can see a long shadowy figure standing in front of him. The entity is thin, long, and hazy. MOHAN is now terrified but he tried to keep his calm. The kids in the video call shouted, " Do not worry sir this is an evil entity that wants to harm you but we are your students. No one can harm our teacher. So relax, we are with you. "


MOHAN is unable to understand what is happening when he saw that shadowy figure is trying to approach him but something came in between that shadowy figure and MOHAN. MOHAN felt a soft cold hand touched both the shoulders of MOHAN. He looked back and was surprised instantly. It is SUCHISMITA and SOHINI standing beside him, " SIR you are our teacher our angel guardian our everything. You gave us tuitions, you gave us treats on our birthdays everything which our struggling parents failed to do for us. We can never repay this with our life also but after death the least we can do is protect our teacher from any evil. You are writing a horror novel on real haunted legends. You study about evil spirits, ghosts too much keep thinking about them. This attracts negative energy, aura. This evil entity got attracted to harm you. But no worries we are there to protect you. "

MOHAN is taken by absolute shock, " what are you guys saying, you guys are dead, I mean I am not able to understand.......... I mean how did it happen? " " Sir the bus accident news you got in google 25 kids died we are on that same bus. We are trying to get back to our native hometown and unfortunately, the bus fell into a pit. None of us survived. " The shadowy thin figure disappeared slowly.

The 5 kids surrounded their favorite teacher and said, " take care, sir, this life is yours. Be safe" Those kids disappeared in the form of white smoke. MOHAN is left in a state of absolute shock and dismay.

3 years have passed since that day. MOHAN is now an established novelist whose book is one of the best-selling horror novels. Mohan can always feel that some invisible force is always surrounding him and protecting him from any problem that might harm him but in the end, could not do anything. Those kids their innocent soul is still attached with their master, their teacher.
