RAGGING.........(TRUE INCIDENT)- Saurabh

so after my higher secondary ,my parents pushed me to this hell polytechnic college.....instead of my interest to do b.tech in engineering.....but somewho i had to join it.....but i was not knowing that this college has been more popularised for itz ragging activities which some how affected our life..and more over to my mate neel (name changed bcoz he is in my frnd list).......and another mate was abhay(true name)......so....i was very new to this enviornment of word called college......so i was very much excited as well has enormous amount of fear bcoz after taking the admission i came to know from my frndz that ragging is a trend in this college and every junior has to bend his head before ragging......but the ragging which we have faced at that time was completly shake out our heart now also..when we remember those terrible moments of our life......
so any how i thought i wud manage ...all the ragging activities done on me....and wud surely get a chance to ragg my juniors next year so .....as evry student has to face this thing once in his life so i too accepted this..and didnt told my father about the ragging being done to the first year students in this college.....as i didnt wanna my dad to indulge himself in my problems as also i m a quite reserve type at that time......so any how i took the hostel .near the colleg wid my room mates this two..neel and abhay......they were unknown to me but soon we became good frndz.......
so upto one month every thing was going all right....and seniors were acting not less than angel wid us......but we were very much surprised at this behaviour of our seniors as.......seniors hostel block was just attached near to our hostel......only.but we were knowing that this silence of seniors r like silence before the storm comes......so we were quite cautious, always when seniors passed through front of us.....we just see at our third and whish them.....so that we might get safe in front of eyes of some seniors......but we were actually the most defaulter juniors and specially me.......
so after one month during our first....g.r(general ragging)......seniors called us.....to thier blosk in batches.....of 10 boys.only i too gone wid this two guys abhay and neel......so we were standing looking at third button of our shirt..in one of the rooms.of our senior his name was dev......he was the most dangerous senior as i have heard from my hostel mates......so he took the general intro....after that he gave.....all the boys different task to perfom.....the task which was given to me neel and abhay...was that we have to make the senior mam living at girls hostel which was some wat 1 km away from our campus, fear......about ghost he gave us the task and said to complete it the next nite.....so there was no chance for us to disobey the so called order of dev sir......we knodded our head okk...we will complete......we came back after getting some slaps from our seniors....back to our hostel room....now i neel and abhay were thinking that how cud we do the following task......
so any how we slept thinking that how cud we make the senior mam fear of ghost....and if we wud get caught than the only thing was we wud get expell from the college......and if we wud not complete then seniors wud beat us like dogs...so i was in great tension that wat we wud do, next morning three of us didnt gone to college......we were making plan....that wat we wud do at nite....the whole day we were gathering information about the girls hostel that upto how much time did all girls sleep and who is the guard how many guards r there to protect the most tresurous creatures (girls)....and so on from the near by ......pan shops and tea shops.....so we gathered all the informations....any how i was feeling very awkward to do this but i was about to do this unwillingly......anyhow....so we came out wid the plan that at about 1 am....we three of us wud get near the back side of the girls hostel though it was surrounded by all kind of bushes and thornes...even snakes but.....we have to go there..otherwise if we do something front side we wud get caught by the guards......abhay was given the task to trow stone at the corridoor and in the windows and when the girls come out.....or peep...through thier windows.....i and neel wud stand on the sticks.....(bamboo sticks)...we have arranged them from the woods market.....wid bed sheet on our heads and walk near the windows so....that if someone peeps..he wud see that upto second floor how a white looking creature is moving in the air......hope u all got the idea....i walked on this bamboo during my childhood time when i was in village but this neel....never got experience to do this...so i told him just to stand on the sticks and i wud only move.....around u....creating a horrible scene......
so according to our plan we three of us.....arranged a bike from one of our senior giving him assurity that we wud complete the task and wud bring back his bike.......took that bamboo sticks some how we managed to keep it.....and took white bed sheets....along wid us till 11 pm.we were just near to the senior girls hostel.....our hearts were pumping up and down....to do such a thing, if something wud go wrong then wat wud be the result.......if any senior mam.....wud get heart attck after seeing such a scene we all three wud be behind bars nothing else......but wat to do we have any how do it,so after roaming here and there......abhay was soo tense that he was smoking cigrretes like a chain smoker......i didnt smoke but i was just walking in order to calm down my fear neel..was also in a tense mood and...his face was showing full of fear......i was seeing this both guys faces......even i too was getting fear ful waves inside me to do such thing......
so some how we all three hided ourself behind the hostel....and left our bike at some meters ..inlying position so that no body cud see it also the huge bushes were giving the bike a cover so that it cudnt be seen easily......we just came near to the wall of the hostel at back side.....the time was approx 12 .45 am......the girls hostel was in deep silence state, so according to our mischievious plan abhay collected some stones in order to throw them at the windows.....and i and neel started tying that huge bamboo sticks at our shoes....and taking out the white bed sheet out of the bags.....to add more we used the radioms in order to shine.....at some specific points on the bed sheet, we just prepared the bed sheets such that it was not looking less than a horrible creature wid black eye hole .....along wid some arrangemest to show huge ears and all that......but we were fearing in ourself only that wat wud happen if doing all this we encounter wid real ghost.....or the guards.......some far away the dogs also started crying automatically....adding the back ground sounds to the deeds which we were about to do.....more over we arranged the ladies gown for ourself so that it wud create a lady figure.as some one see it first time....and wud think of lady ghost.....so we were all prepared wid our preparations.....it was full moon nite i remember every thing was clearly visible....to us.....
it was almost 1.15 am.....abhay threw the stones at the windows making large noise....the building of the hostel was not too much at height as it was old building just two floors were there......so i and neel somehow stood on the bamboo sticks.....near the two windows that were almost about to open....as we heard from inside".....payal jara dekhna kya hai....".....said by one of the senior mam....i and neel just took the position at the respective windows.....soon two three windows opened wid 6 to 7 seven girls peeping outside.....as soon as they seen us..at that state, they screamed as like as traing blowing its horn......almost evry one of them shouted "ye kya hai.......bhagwan....."neel was standing and was moving wid great difficulty....i started to move near the windows wid ease creating a horrified scene...out there....abhay just ran and make ready the bike at some distance so that we cud easily ran back...to our hostel......the girls...(senior mams)......almost began to ran out of thier rooms wid great fear at thier faces and along wid loud scream......our task was seen almost completed....but the fault which we have committed that while running back we left our bamboo sticks some wat away from the hostel.......and reached our hostel room.........the next daythere was a huge complain..as the guards and the girls hostel warden investigated that this was a manly deed....performed by the boys........and more over the guards ran after us to some extent and saw that we took a turn towards the boys hostel....but they were on foots so were not sure about whether the seniors or the juniors boys have done.it.......but were sure that the boys of hostel has done such a horrible deed.....after two days the seniors were being punished wid a fine.....and juniors were left as the management thought we were new and cant do such type of deed......most probably it was done by the seniors.....
after the imposed fine was paid by the seniors......we thought any how we get over our task given by the seniors..and senior wud give us appreciation..but ther result was reverse......we all three were called by the seniors at thier block at sunday nite......almost evry one of them were drunk......they just beaten us....wid slaps and abused us for our deed done so carelessly..moreoer they said that we were being punished more bitterously.....they need time to think that wat wud be the punishment given to three of us for such a careless ness......and after that we came back to our room......neel was almost shievering due to fear,and was saying cmon.....shud we commit our deed in front of management or wat......abhay and i stopped him by doing so....as the result wud be very worse we might get expell from college also or our parents wud be informed.....then wat wud happen......so any how we were about to drink the situation no other options were left in front of us.......
after two nites ..there was a huge knock at our room....we three of us were sleeping......we got up and opened the door......there were about 10 seniors entered at our room......as usual we didnt have any rights to have an eye contact wid seniors whishing them "good evening sir"...........we took a side and stand still......wid our heads bend......then one of the senior said"tum log bahut laparwah hoo"....bcoz of u we hav been punished....now the next punishment for u is.that,suddenly dev (the most defaulter senior)_....stopped his saying,and he began to say..that u three guys think that u r too smarter naa..."beta abhi dekhtey hai kitni kubat hai......"....then he said do u know mahadev ghat.....near to our hostel......campus we said "yes sir..."..again we three got three slaps.....bcoz the reason was we didnt took the permission from dev sir that "sir may we have permission to reply u"......according to seniors after every questions of them we were required to ask permission that we can reply or not and when the senior wud say yes u may...then only we cud answer......so, the punishment was as mahadev ghat was a grave yard as well as shamshan ghat.......there was a river flowing near the ghat......wid a dam over it........that place it self was so much horrible at day hours .......then think wat wud be the condition at nite.....we have evn heard that many of mysterious death have been occured near the ghat.......but the punishment was that upto five days we were required to lite "diyaa"......at the each and evry grave situated at the grave yard.....and after 1 hour we were required to collect all those diyas.....and bring back.....and seniors wud see that we r doing or not from the terrace...of thier hostel,as if we wud lite "diyaas".......then wud easily get thier view from the hostel as there was about 1 .5 km gap between..the hostel and ghat .......and the between place was empty.......widout any trees or buildings but only one straight road that too very haunting one at nite.....
so we have to lite those "diyaas".....at the graves were we dont know also how many spirits roam at the nite as well as...that time near the ghat a single person was not staying not even the guard no any workman of the dam.....as we have heard that many times spirits were seen by the peoples or the fisher men who were working there........means at the ve time only then...wat wud be the condition at nite......the above order when came iinto our ears after said by the sir.........then the floor seem to revolve beneath our feet......abhay all most made a crying face out there......and i ddont know about neel since he was standing behind us....i was sure that he too might have left his pee on his pant after hearing this punishment........then the more worse twist one of the senior also added in the punishment.......he told that "first any of two wud go and lite the diyas on the graves.....and come back after 1 hr....the next and the alone guy wud go and bring back all the diyas and that too correct in number....means all the diyas shud be there which were being lited by the the two guys....:"and wud report after coming back.......this type of ragging was just a versatile type of deed being done to torcher any junior.....i too was fearing that how we wud do this.......and who wud be the alone person to go and collect all those diyas......it was just an impossible task in front of three of us......we started pleading to the seniors that"pls sir forgive us...give us some other punishment but our request were all invain".......the seniors left the room saying that after two nites u have to start the task so make up ur minds till then......best of luck.....and all gave a cunning smile and left our room........
so the seniors got left out our hostel......me, abhay ,neel where stunned at the activity which now three of us have to perform.....but that not the easy task.....as by thinking also we were getting fear and we were just chilling wid fear more and more by thinking the conditions we were going to meet in future......any how now nothing cud be change we were about to adapt the situation, so next day we went to college some how..ran from the college just at the half day...in order to buy this "diyas"......which we were said to lite on the graves......"oil".....for burning those diyas and other things like torch match boxes....
so at that nite we made the plan,we were just quarreling that first me and abhay wud go to lite....than neel wud collect it.but neel opposed it as he was the most fearing guy in three of us......but my level of fear was also not much less then this too but i was......not expressing it but neel was showing it by making pale faces and almost about to cry....so any how seeing neels........condition i told okk abhay and u go and lite diyas and come .....after one hour i wud go..but this is for the first day then turn wud change...okkkk......any how this two agreed....i too wid great fearing and shaking voice...agreed wid them....but my condition was like teared ......tyre like......i was just thinking at nite i m surely going to die.........and no body wud ever find my body too..but i was just.....have to do it....nothing else...we three seached for so many plans to get rid of....but all the plans seemed to invain......even we tried to hier men in order to do this task.but they feared as if they might have given a very tough task more tough then......to fight wid a wild tiger......but lastly we had to do it......the nite slowly came...we all three were at room..suddenly at nite about 11 pm..one of the senior came and said are all three of u set....down...or u wud reject....we said okkk we wud do it .sir....since by questioning also he was showing his belt ......that if we wud refuse ....he wud just give us hard....
so at about 12....and half almost six to seven seniors were at our room....and they gave us thier bike so that we wud reach there......but that bike was also not in good state and more over it was old......just a "hero puch".........wid just two gears that too making a loud roar while riding as if all itz parts were crying and trying hard just too come out of the bike......almost it was dead bike and speed that was not more than 30..35 km/hr.....but we were given that only.....so any how abhay and neel....took all those items..means oil and diyas......and other commodities and just started to go for mahadev ghat......but they were just feeling as if they were going on thier death track......
so the next things which m jotting down were just said to me by abhay and neel only..........._so they were reaching towards mahadev ghat...the bike was just tearing out the silence which was spread all around them.....the nite was quite cold as....at evening only heavy rainfall was there.....and the silence spread all around was just like pindrop....abhay was riding and neel was sitting at back.....seat some how they reached the ghat.....the ghat was looking as if it was calling them from ages...long and they were just about too die at any moment......the large sound of river water near the ghat .....was adding to thier fear as.the water level got rised at the river as it was rainy season.....there was deep silence evry where out there.....there was just only one lite at the ghat at the entrance of the grave yard.....that too was not glowing so much.....means it was just glowing as it was the old age of the bulb .....so any how astanding near the entrance abhay and neel started to take out the diyas....oil ,cotton.....and match box...abhay said neel......m going inside to count the nuymber of graves so that we wud prepare diyas according to the counting....the grave yards compound was almost broken.....it was having brick boundary but almost broken and .....fallen boundarys at many place...the only thing that was alright was the gate.....it was black in colour and looking like just being polished and shining..one..........
abhay was trying to open the gate but it was jammed due to mud.....as he said me...so any how he entered ....from the side as boundary wall was broken there.....he got inside neel was making diyaas wid his shaking hands and looking all around as he was thinking that any moiment he wud get grapped by some unknown thing....so he was seeing here and there wid fearing eyes and haunted face in order to make himself sure that he is secure uptill now......he just knee down postion and preparing diyas....after some time abhay came back.....and sat near to him and said its 32 graves......they both started to do there work quikly prepared that much diyaas and started to take them inside.....near the graves they began too lite them......but when they began to lite the first diyaa it almost extinguished by itz own......since there was noo wind blowing but none of the diyas were lightning......they were refusing to be lighten......the situation of abhay and neel was just getting down...they were continously chantting the names of god and godesses in order to .......help them to complete thier work.....but thier level of confidence was just getting down.....
any how the diyas begin to glow.....abhay and neel got some relax feel in the inner sense......they quikly began to place the diyas at every graves...at the top.....the thier heart was just pumping up and down.......the time was seemed to be stood still.....they almost placed 32 ....graves wid the liten diyass.......wid great fear.....they just were about to run.....when about five minutes all the diyas lightened.....they ran wid the bike as soon as possible.....wid holding up thier lives in thier palms......just reached the hostel wid in 40 min.approx.......now i was the next......to be going alone to put my head under the sword.....i took the bike.....from abhay...waited there for about 15 min.....asked about thier condition..and told them to report the seniors that m...going to collect them back.......they said okk best off luckk.....we wud tell the seniors.....taking the name of god wid in myself ,i started my journey.......it was almost two.......at the time when i was on the way, i was just feeling the presence of fear running down at my nerves.....i was riding wid mum silence.....not even looking towards the right and left of the road........as i was thinking wat wud happen if by seeing here and there......(right or left)......i wud see something un natural......so i was just riding wid having my eyes on the straigth path......my heart was just exploding out due to fear...i was feeling as if i was knowing i might suffer hard but m willing to be...suffer.......but i continued as i was thinking.....watever happen i wud see......as no other option was in front of me...that time......
some how..i too reached near the gate......of mahadev ghat...grave yard.....standing the bike i too.went inside the grave yard.....wid the way told to me by abhay.....when i stood inside.....i was feeling out the presence of fear surrounding me.i was just standing and wiping out my face wid the hankerchief in order to get my face free from sweat.......due to which whole shirt got sticked to my body......i was also fearing a lot...i was thinking standing there..."itna asaan nahi jo hum sochtey hai......."any how i was making out my mind.....to be calm down.as it was not supporting myself as the quantity of fear inside my body was increasing out wid every second of time......i saw that none of the "diyaa"..was glowing....may be due to wind they all extinguished....as the seniors saw that the diyass were glowing when abhay and neel.......where here in the grave yard,so i was sure that the diyaas were at each grave situated out here......but the troughest think which i was about to do was to collect down them......i took out the torch from my pocket and the bag..in order to put those diyaas....but my condition was very much petiable.......i was chanting out "hanuman chalisaa"......thoroughly.....but due to fear it was refusing to get me.....memorised..as i was repeating and stucking out at some of the lines....but i thought i wud not break the rythm......i just continued to read that in my mind....and some times little louder when my hear started to feel increse of fear......
SO ANY HOW I COLLECTED ALMOST ABOUT 20 TO 22 DIYAS....BUT THE OTHER DIYAS I DINT WANT TO FIND AS I WAS ALONE...and the situation was so horrifying that,i didnot have any dare left to show......than..actually according to my and abhays plans.....they have hided some of the "diyas"...near a tree, which was near to the grave yard....bcoz if any one cant find out the all diyas than he can take this diyas and make the count equal to 32..and report the senior....actually we were fooling our seniors....so i quickly ran towards the tree....where abhay had hided the extra diyas.....abhay said me tat he wud hide them.....beside the rock near the tree.....so i ran came near the tree......but i dont know some thing hauntful i experienced..when i was searching for the diyas.....wid the torch lite........and bending down to collect them....i clearly heard as if some one mumered at low voice .....my blood got dried upp...and heart almost giving out blow inside the chest......i was almost just frozen out where i was standing..for one to two sec i completly forgot that for what reason i m here in this graveyard (hell).....my fear was just at the peak......i just hoded near about 10 diyas just put them in the bag......and stood strainght.......the more hauntful that again happened...was when i took huge steps to go back towards my bike...something just following me..i got a clear indication that something not with in normal thing is behind me..i was just feeling some presence of the unaturality around me....as it was causing the surrounding s around me heavier.....and i was feeling....it.......
i was just running towards the bike.........i just gave a jump to its seat..and just started kicking itt.........but my luck was so much disgusting.that it refused to start.......i thought that now theres is no chance for me to survive any more....i continued my kick......as i was collecting whole enrgy of my body at my foot and giving out hard kicks in order to get start the bike.....chanting the name and hanuman chalisa....was also dizzling my mind....i was repeatdly...getting stucking wid the lines and words...i was thinking that might god is not wid me.......thats yy i m suffering or i have just annoyed him by speaking out the wrong pronounces...of this mantras.......i was just asking for pardon from the almighty god..as soon i asked for the pardon....the bike started and i just ran taking the bike at the fullest of its speed.....which was hardly 35 km.per hr......any how i too reached the hostel and abhay and neel waiting wid curiosity for me......i just gave the bag to thier hand and said......i hav done my job my frndz i hav done it...soon.....seniors too came it was almost 3 oclock...they too counted the diyas.....they got amzed at the job done by us......but didnt spoke any thing too us...told okk u may go and rest......soon we too whished the seniors and ran towards our hostel room....i abhay and neel took bath.......and just ran towards the bed...
soon....we slept.as we were too tired by doing all nite this all...and the amount of fear had made our head full of ache.......at morning soon we went off to college...at 12 pm we were again back to the room...soon we were again fighting about now among this two abhay and neel...who wud be alone to collwect back the diyas.....neel almost cried upp that he didnt wanna to go alone pls, forgive him he didnt hav that much heart to go alone............he was crying so bitterly and wid such a pain that abhay told okk fine i wud go today ......alone to collect back diyas.....and abhay and i decide that i think we both hav only to go turn by turn alone too collect the diyas as this guy neel........wud just get die if we wud send him alone.......finally........three more days like this past away, that we continued to go and lite diyas and one of the fellow go and collects and bring them back......but on the last day.........of our tasdk some thing strange happened.......
at the last day....of our task it was about 12 am..approx seniors approached our room....they said us that this is ur last day of ur punishment complete it and u wud be free.....but no oneneither me,abhay and neel were knowing wat wud be seen by us in the near coming future hours....so abhay and neel got all set to go towards the grave yard.......they hav developed huge confidence too.....as upto four days nothing too much haunted things like ghost or spirits we hav got encountered .....except me but i just fell the presence only......but when abhay and neel.....where just returning from the way of mahadev ghat towards hostel....they were just very happy and were feeling as if they have completed thier task.....and were feeling very much relaxed...but suddennly they saw....that a man dressed in "pajama kurta".....turning his back side towards them and was walking towards them......means his face was on the other side and walking towards them fastly.....they just got shocked and just pooked out there only neel just said"abey ye kya hai......"and abhay almost fall of the bike on the road......they just started ran here and there to save thier lives neel on some other direction and abhay some other direction.....they almost were fainted when any how they reached the hostel.........they were just breathing as if they just hav came running a marathon race......i just also gussed that they might have saw today something.....all the seniors were in my room only.....they asked abhay and neel about the cause of thier fear,abhay and neel just explained them the whole they visited when they were coming back towards the hostel......than that senior named "dev".. gave a huge and loud laugh and said" inki sakal tyo dekho ha ha ha..."..me abhay nad neel were just amazed and after taht all the seniors started laughing........and soon we saw that one of senior sir named gautam just came inside wering white "pajama kurta".....and told that he was only ghost of abhay and neel.....
all the seniors were laughing so loudly.......and they just made this two guys abhay and neel fool.......on next day abhay and neel got huge fever just bcoz of the fear and all the mental stress........neel was hospitalised too.....his condition was little odd...abhay got all right with in one day...but neels fever was not leaving him......any how his parents were informed and they took him wid them to thier city.........and hospitalised him there........but just after one month and on the same date.......that senior named "gautam"......met wid aroad accident .on the same spot....as on that road there was not much traffic nor it was highway but he met wid a accident there wid some big matadoor or truck and too our strange when we were informed that gautam sir is no more..........i and abhay too went to hospital to see him......when we saw him he was wearing that "pajama kurta " only that he was wearing on that day.....but usually we have never seen him wearing "pajama kurta"nor his batch mate seniors too.....but he dressed and died .......the same and also the place too was the same.....all the seniors were shocked......and we too......we informed this news to neel too........he too got amazed.......and shocked.....all were just confused standing out there.....every face that i was watching standing there was having a huge question mark..(?)......but no one there was having an answer for this......
so the thing from my point of view is ........whether that gautam sir on that day dressing up like ghost to haunt this two guys abhay and neel.......unknowingly insulted this ghost or spirit wheter he......annoyed them......by frightening the other humans like ghost......that yyy he was punished by them.......or was this written in his destiny or wheather.....it was gods will........there are so many answer as i have heard but according too.......me "YAA THERE IS SOMETHING SOME POWER OR SOMETHING WHICH HAS ALWAYS AN EYE ON US.......WHENEVER WE DOO RIGHT OR WRONG.....BUT SOMETIMES IT DOES WRONG TO US WE CALLED IT AS GHOST OR EVIL AND IF SATISFY OUR NEEDS AND WANTINGS WE CALLED IT AS GOD"......but i feel that evil and good r just two faces of the same power thats controlling the universe.......to one side its god and on other its devil......
THE END..............

  1. Saurabh, well written story... I enjoyed it a lot... According to me we should always respect god's creation and I beleive they(the ghost & spirits) are part of god as we the humans or other animals & insects or any damn creation on this universe.

    regret the death of gautam ... but gives us all a lesson.
