This is a short but the most horrific moment of my life. I have completed my graduation from IIT Kharagpur. My hall of residence (hostel) in the campus was one of the biggest halls of IIT kgp. During puja vacation in IIT Kharagpur, we get about a week off. It was October 2015 when everyone had gone their homes for Durga puja as we all know how big this fest is in West Bengal but my room partner planned to stay in the hostel in this puja vacation and I also stayed.


I had this habit of coming late in the night. I used to roam around on the campus till late in the night with friends or used to either sit in the library.

So the 2nd day of this puja off, I came back quite late in the night. It was about 3 am. The hostel canteen was closed. They keep it closed always during puja vacation. My room was on 3rd floor, Room no-454. It was the last room of that hall.


Only a few students were there in the hostel. All of them seemed to be sleeping as I could barely find a single room with its lights on. Even the corridors’ lights were off. I lit my mobile torch and climbed stairs. Everything was so quiet in the hall that I could loudly hear the taps of my feet climbing stairs.

Corridors were so long in my hostel that I could see the other end of the hostel through it as much as I could see in that darkness. Anyhow, I reached my room, put the lights on, and rushed into the washroom (We had attached washroom), freshened up, came back and laid down on my bed.


My room partner anxiously said “Shivam, (lights off kar) put the lights off…”I could understand his anxiety. I got up from the bed, switched off the lights and got back to my bed with sleepy eyes.


Suddenly, I remembered that when I had come to my room, the door was locked and I had to unlock it to enter and nobody was there in the room. I ran towards the switchboard and switched the lights on. There was no one on the other bed. A shiver ran through my body. I had no courage to go out in the corridor so I just sat down on my bed with lights on the whole night. I could not sleep that night. I called my room partner in the morning and came to know that he went back to home without informing me.

Later I changed that room and while writing this I realized that sum of the digits present in my room no is 13 (4+5+4).

I still sleep with lights on.
