Photographer's Note

We started from railway Station, Shimla, reached the Vidhan Sabha.
Moving towards Cecil Oberia we met some friends who insisted to change the route.
A few days earlier a vegetable vendor was found fainted as he met with a "Ghost".
We then decided to follow the same route......the haunted route.
Reaching the foothil of the museum at Chaura Maidan we turned to the right...a new road, we had never been to.
After a few steps we were in the pitch dark as the road was passing through the Jungle.
We could hear our own footsteps, our own breathing.
The hands were looking for the hands and fear got the better of us.
Negi screamed, not out of danger but out of frustation as he was not able to walk properly.
On one side was the hill and on the other side valley, from where we could hear the noise of insects now and then.
A far distant light gave all of us a hope.

We almost ran towards it.

We reached a beautiful cottage, well lit with a nice garden and beautiful plantation.

I clicked a single shot, and then a mysterious voice echoed......"Who is there"

We ran away , but the pitch darkness on the raod made us halt.

Prespiring, we kept moving and the next 5 minutes seemed like 5 hours.

Only when we reached the Main Road connecting "The Indian Institute of Advanced Studies", we could breath properly.

With trembling legs and faded faces, we stared at each other.

We waited for the bus.......as ahead of us again was the Jungle.

Whose house is this and from where came the echo, we don't know.
