This happened a long time ago. My dad used to work with Bayer which is located in Kolshet area in Thane city, and he used to work in late night shifts. To go to his office, he often took a shortcut which passed from a small village named Dhokali.
That night (at around 10 pm), he decided to walk all the way to his office. It was really stupid of him; but I guess elders like to do everything that they warn us against. So anyway, this shortcut he took wasn’t really a road. It was in fact just a small path that started from our colony gate, then through the small forest kind of place. My dad must have walked for about 20 minutes when all of a sudden, out of nowhere, he saw a small kid (about 2 years old) running naked. He assumed that the kid must be from the nearby Dhokali village, and may have lost his way. He followed the kid, just to ensure he helps him to his home.
But to his horror, the kid just vanished in front of his eyes! Before my dad could get to his senses, he sensed the kid standing behind him. Feeling something terribly wrong, my dad started walking towards Dhokali village. Once he reached the village, he narrated the incident to the villagers. To his utter shock, some of
the villagers told him that just a bit ahead of the place where my dad saw the kid, there was a small children’s cemetery.
Till this date, whenever my dad narrates this incident, I am scared to death.
P.S. I still hate my dad for taking that god forsaken road!
