“Revenant, Rumours, Reflections scar the blood and breath of the myth hidden”.

All ‘shades’ are not always Grey, some are downright dark. What are these ‘shades’ according to you? The realistic, breathtaking incidents etch chilling folk tales. Yes, ghosts still exist.

The childhood grandma stories created spark and enlightened up the soul. On the other hand, to make us strong and fight from fears, there were some ‘ghost stories’ too.

Watching dim flashlight after the scary nightmares was the only reason to those midnight readings.

Thunderbolt thrilling nights, broken stairs, and stormy winds all enrolled the fearful atmosphere. ‘ I’m following you, I’m with you, I’m behind you, You just need to turn back.

Phantom screamed aloud, the voice echoed through the ears in shock. Some of the nerve-racking and spine-tingling ghost stories depicting eerie, spooky, beauty of fear are here.

The ghost tunnel tales

ghost-story-1

The village named Kushinagar tackle up the frightening tickles behind the tunnel.

From dawn to dusk, only one train travel through the same tunnel. ‘Tunnel has many traumatic ghost keepers’. The linkage of peepal tree to myths was one of their works. Legend says that killing people each day is a sin but no one noticed the reality behind the myth. The shrilling cry and the sound of ornaments still echo there at 3:33 A.M.

The tunnel keeper once saw the woman with long black hair, soaked in blood and a white fabric saree covering the body. She wanted him to help her to reach her destination. They kept on talking for hours. He felt something was wrong that nights as he noticed her legs.

The red keyhole

ghost-story-2

On a regular day, Pip went to his music class where he was learning to play the piano. He forgot that a day earlier, it was declared that the classes will remain close that day. Around seven in evening as he was walking down the steps of the house, he heard a melodious voice singing along with the instrumental music. That voice took him to the room which usually remained closed. Through the key hole, he saw a girl, dressed in white, playing the piano and singing. But, the strange thing was, why was the room barred?

Another day after his practice session, he waited till 7 o’clock. Again, the sweet and melodious voice tuned up his ears and he walked up to that room. Again, he peeped through the keyhole he found everything red.

The hidden suspense of the tail lies here. Actually, the girl was looking at him too through the keyhole.

‘The girl had the red eyes’.

The eerie of Chemistry lab

ghost-stories-3

Mr. Vivek (Faculty at Chemistry department) and Aastha (A chemistry honours final year student) had a strong covalent bond between them. The extra classes study and romance in chemistry lab was the only reason for more life after death.

Being a hostler, she was usually the first girl to reach his class. Everything went well until the session that happened in Chemistry lab. The titration was at its level to pale pink. Who would have thought that pale pink colour soon changed to blood red? I’ll really kill you, Aastha — that cunning argument ended on this statement.

Chemistry lab is still closed up to date. It has been 12 days since then, Aastha as usual, enjoys the chemistry lectures.

That night, she had ice cream with Mr. Vivek in her senses. On 13th day, the chemistry lab was open. There, they found the body of Mr. Vivek smelling hard. But, the dilemma was even harder than the smell. With whom was Aastha the 12 days? Was it the wild spirit of Mr. Vivek whose voice always echoed “I’ll really kill you , Aastha”.

His lost drug

ghost-stories-4

It was about a week after the death of his wife. Ravi used to sit beside the window of his house near the Ganga ghat. He heard the sound of the ornaments pulling him down. Due to the continuous rain, the atmosphere near the ghats was shivering creepy. He followed the voice of the ornaments but as he reached downstairs, the sound vanished. He thought that his wife was calling.

Again, the other day, he sat beside the window pane. Again, the sound of the ornaments took up to the banks of the ghats. This time it didn’t stop until Ravi was completely drowned. He saw his wife standing there and calling him out, “Come to my place”. His drug was none other than his dead wife.

Hospital Night

ghost-stories-5

My grandmother was admitted in the hospital due to cardinal issues. Doctor, a day before, declared that she couldn’t walk due to the cardinal shock.  It was 15th of August, a year back. The hospital staff was on a leave. I and my mother remained whole night to take care of her. It was 2 AM and my eyes abruptly opened . Something shocking galloped my head. The door of the hospital room was open and my grandmother wasn’t on her bed. I followed the lane outside the hospital room to find her. My mother was still sleeping.

It was raining hard and the water drops covered the hospital lanes. I found a woman in the similar attire of my grandmother sitting and drinking tea. She offered me the tea to drink. I asked her ‘have you seen a woman of your age? she is missing. She is my grandmother.’ A voice echoed in my ear , “I’m behind you, girl.” As I looked behind I saw no one. The woman sitting beside to me was no more there. The only left was a cup of tea in my shivering hands.

 

Horrors and suspense, still brain wash our mind. “I’m behind you” in the night to “I’m following you” are still the creepy phrases unnerving the apt.

It excites the situation more. The dream thriller suspense that creates goosebumps are here daunted in the five ghost mysteries.

The best way to deal with a  violent storm of emotions and imaginations is to pen it, soothe it, speak it.I sketch poems and your attraction is my reward. The skillful art of weaving words into stories is a blessing that I owe to almighty Thee. Many people write for fun, but for me writing is attachment, both with my soul and my readers. Mystique, Fiction, Exoticism, Radiance all rhyme to my work. It's never too late to start, in life and in Blogging! Passion defines living every moment and I've just begun to give in to passion.Streaming blood in body and inking silence in write-ups define me completely.

Nobel-prize-2018

Time and again, people have proved that strong strings withstand the tests, no matter how great the pressure! Nobel Prizes were thus, introduced keeping in mind the strength that inspires billions.

Imagine sleeping on a footpath or park bench, or studying under street lights, or serving as slaves to ruthless people, or working so hard that you almost died. Imagine protecting others with your life in the line, imagine being shot if you raised your voice to protest.

IMAGINE.

People receive awards not just by doing something great, but by finding greatness in hardships, in challenges they face to achieve their goals. Such people are idols, for they show how to achieve greatness, which is far worthy than success.

Here are the Nobel Prize winners of 2018 whose outstanding works made the world gasp in wonder.

 

Nobel Prize for Medicine or Physiology

Nobel-Prize-for-Medicine-or-Physiology

James P. Allison and TasukuHonjo will receive the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery of cancer therapy by inhibition of negative immune regulation. Allison’s early research focused on understanding how the human immune system defends the body from pathogens and cancers, with an emphasis on the role of immune cells called T cells. He went on to develop an antibody that blocks a CTLA-4 protein that led to the disintegration of existing tumors. Ipilimumab(antibody) was the first remedial which improved survival for patients with this deadly disease.

Honjo researched & identified the protein PD-1 on immune cells. After meticulous research, he saw that it also operates as a brake on T cells, but that it functions in a different way to CTLA-4.

 

Nobel Prize for Chemistry

Nobel-Prize-for-Chemistry

The 2018 Nobel Prize in Chemistry has been bestowed on Frances H. Arnold for the “directed evolution of enzymes” and, to George P. Smith and Gregory P. Winter for the “phage display of peptides and antibodies.”

In simple words, Directed Evolution is a lab method where mutation and screening in used to speed up the genes natural selection process. Arnold introduced random mutations into the gene for a starting enzyme, used microbial genes and screened mutated genes for the desired activity.

Smith’s research was sequencing the chromosomes of the collected phages to produce genes for proteins with desired binding affinity. Winter extended phage display to screening for different antibodies.

Their work involves techniques that are now, used worldwide and their research will set new patterns for upcoming researchers.

 

Nobel Prize for Peace

Nobel-Prize-for-Peace

Gynecologist Denis Mukwege and Yazidi campaigner Nadia Murad have jointly received the Nobel Prize for peace.

Nadia’s story is sad and inspiring at the same time. She was abused and raped by the IS army. Verbal and violent abuses are a part of the IS military strategy and, girls like Nadia served as weaponry against religious minorities.

Dr. Mukwege has spent his time in helping the victims of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo. He and his staff have treated thousands of victims to such assaults.

They have received a high appraisal for their efforts to prohibit sexual violence in war and armed conflicts.

 

There are so many big and small things that our eyes miss, but once seen through, they show what human beings are capable of achieving. Don’t be afraid to face challenges. Just so you know, “if you to be in history, you have to solve the mystery!”

#MeToo The much talked about hash tag, is here on Wordhazard Too.

Metoo in India

” If she did n’t want ‘me to’ touch her, why did she even wear such and such kinds of clothes?

Why did she drag my name into “ #MeToo ”?,  at least I didn’t rape her!

Why is she bringing this all after 8 years? “

 

Allegations are false and totally fabricated. It is to defame me. If only touching her was such a big issue, she could have voiced them.

Aren’t the above sounding familiar, why won’t they?

With the tsunami of allegations and lots of confessions, especially the previous week in India has again stirred up the hashtag game. This time Bollywood has chosen to speak up against the injustice done to the women.  And this looks very promising that women from other sectors shall to get instilled and speak up.

Starting from the very well known Nana Patekar being accused of sexual harassment, it has enveloped famous directors as Sajid Khan, Subhash Ghai and not forgetting, actor Alok Nath.

 

Let’s drive back into the history of #memovement:

 

Tarana-Burke-me-too

Did you know, the phrase MeToo came into existence in the year 2006?

 

Yes, people, it has taken about 11 years to come into its total effect.

 

Tarana Burke, a social activist, and community organizer began using the phrase “Me Too” in 2006, on the Myspace social network as part of a campaign to promote “empowerment through empathy” among women of color who have experienced sexual abuse.

Tarana-Recovered-metoo

Tarana while listening to the story of a 13-year-old harassed girl “remarked –MeToo” and since then decided to use it for spreading the awareness.

 

The phrase gained its power when it was tweeted in 2017:

me-too-campaign

The phrase “Me too” was tweeted by Milano on October 15, 2017, and had been used more than 200,000 times by the end of the day and tweeted more than 500,000 times by October 16  On Facebook.

Talking about Hollywood, a report said  425 well-known public figures have been publicly accused.  According to Bloomberg news, “that’s more than one newly reported person facing accusations each day, on average, for the last 12 months.” And that’s one whooping fact.

Questions like-

 

Where is the proof?

 

Why is she speaking now?

 

Isn’t is disrespectful for the man?

 

Why didn’t she quit the place silently?

 

How does she remember things as old as 20 years ago?

 

metoo

People must understand, in this patriarchal society where even voicing over harassment is itself one major issue, it is not that one person who needs to be punished , but the entire sick mental thinking that feels wearing short dresses, keeping silent, smiling and talking in a friendly manner provokes or gives you the authority to even finger touch the women without her consent is ethical, just because you are a man ,then I must remark, you are the most dangerous element existing  for the entire humanity.

It’s definitely about equality and here, the question about some #metoo statements being fabricated cannot be ruled out. It is true that many at times men are made the scapegoat and are extorted money, and in such cases, necessary actions and belief in the right judgment by higher authorities must be infused. Be assured if you haven’t done any wrong.

The day, when every woman and every man stops ignoring and starts being proactive and concerned, I don’t think one more victim like me may have to heavy heartedly write and tell yes, it’s #MeToo even.

To Mr. Bachchan,

Sir, 11th October is not just a date but a festival for all of your fans around the globe. Everyone knows you as the Angry Young Man, the Anthony from Amar Akbar Anthony and many such names that are a true reflection of your hard work and success. For the world you might be all of these characters first but for me, you are an inspiration, a living legend. Since the moment I have begun watching films, your persona has had a huge impact on me as a person. I remember watching Anand for the first time and realizing that your on screen presence was my off screen happiness. Sir, you for me are someone who inspires me to keep moving for life is fullof ups and downs.

amitabh-in-kbc1

I have my own way to cherish 11th October by watching all your movies on TV that are telecasted. From Sharaabi to Baghban, KhudaGawah to Paa and many more movies that have a special place in my heart. Your every character has a story to tell and very easily connects with my soul. I’ve admired you on that chair of Kaun Banega Crorepati and at the same time danced to the beats of Badumba song. I’ve laughed my heart out in SattepeSattaand cried every time you shed a tear on screen.

I remember as a child I always complained, why Mr. Bachchan has to die in the climax of most of his films? Those climax scenes of Sholay, Paa, 102 Not Out have all made me feel so sad. I’ve grown up watching your films and adoring your dialogues. From “Hum Jahan Khade ho Jaate Hain Line Wahin se Shuru Ho Jaatihai to KabhiKabhi Mere DilmeinKhayalAata Hai”, they have been my favorite. From Rang Barse to Main YahanTuWahan, your voice has always been so connective and mesmerizing. Meeting you in person and being able to express what you are to me is my dream. To witness your charismatic persona, to hear those dialogues live is my dream.

amitabh-in-baghban

Your movies are an eternal part of my life. Baghban has made me realize not just what family means but also the essence of true love. Mohabatein has made me witness the strong man whose ethics are his priority. Sharaabi has taught me to stay grounded no matter how rich you are. Paa, 102 Not Out taught me to live life to the fullest. While we see you work, we realize there is no end to legendary art and talent. Your work is eternal and so is your personality. The industry is blessed to have you as someone whose admiration for anything or anyone is a blessing for them.

No award or honor is greater than the honor of being a living legend and yet so grounded and humble. I heard someone saying that you are just 36 years for you had a rebirth after the accident in Coolie. I was not even born then but every time I see you sir, I thank God for making me so lucky to watch you. On this birthday of yours, I wish you all the happiness, success and health. May you continue to work and may we meet soon someday sir. For me you are no less than a teacher, a guide and a man of honor.

For me, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan is not just an actor but a feeling of respect, honor and purity. Your journey will continue to motivate me to be a person who gained respect through his unique work and humble gestures. I’ll continue to try my luck in KBC and all other ways in the hope to meet you sir. Words will always seem less for me to describe your importance in my life. I know one thing for sure that if I meet you someday, I’ll just cry out of happiness. My words will have no way to come out expect my eyes. Happiest Birthday Sir !

With best wishes,

Your greatest fan!
