An Evil Eye, Where logic fails.
I never believed in evil eye until I meet with Diya. We meet during morning walk in Dhakuria Lake. Diya is an average girl with a very innocent face. We meet every day, walk together, chitchat about our daily life, sometimes share secrets and like this we became very good friends. Suddenly she stopped coming for morning walk. I guessed that perhaps she might be unfit. I called her several times but she didn’t picked up my ph. Then she texted me that she is finished. I was astonished and asked her to meet me in CCD golpark.
We meet and then I came to know everything what the tragedy happened with her. Pratik is Diya’s husband and they were very good couple. Diya always praised Pratik. It would never be wrong to say that they made for each other. Now what happens, Diya’s sister in law who is very unhappy with her married life always seeks to create problems in Diya and Pratik’s life. Even her mother in law too plays different pranks to disturb them. Being a very calm girl, Diya always ignored such issues. She always believes that until unless Pratik is all right then everything is perfect. We all know the best roles of relatives that they always ready to enhance your problems in very suitable manner. Now everyday quarreling is starts at home between Pratik and his mother, sometimes with his sister too. Whenever relatives come, they used to poke nicely in these problems. Nevertheless, Diya always ignore and tries to keep her husband cool to maintain peace in the family.
Gradually Pratik starts keep distance from home where Diya keep waiting for him. He starts come late to home. Without any conversation just with Diya, he used to eat the dinner and then fell asleep. Diya noticed such changes but she thought this might be the work pressure. She supports Pratik in all aspects.
This is said distance matters. One-day Pratik return home some early. Diya was very happy that day. Pratik called Diya and said “Diya I want separation”. With very unreliable eyes Diya, stares at Pratik’s face and then burst into laugh and said “Pratik today is not 1st April. Ok”. “I am not joking Diya,” pratik replied with very serious face straight watching into Diya’s eyes. Diya remain quit and said that she have to do lots of household work, and she will talk later upon this topic. Pratik said “ok” and left out.
That night they did not talk with each other. Next day morning when Diya got up, she saw Pratik already gets ready for office. However, it was too early. Before anything Diya would ask him, Pratik left. In the evening, he returns home some early and sat quietly doing something with his mobile. Diya sat before him and asked, “What’s wrong? “ Pratik replied “nothing”. “Then why you ask me for divorce?” asked Diya.
Pratik kept silent. Diya asked him constantly but Pratik remain silent. Ignoring to Diya’s question Pratik gets busy again doing something in his mobile. Diya started guessing that Pratik might be in extra marital relationship. Even she asked Pratik about this but he said no to such matters.
She is completely confused and tries to find out what is wrong with him. Even after hearing up to this, I also become confused. I also tried to talk to Pratik. He is really a gentle man. I tried to ask him in many ways about the exact problem but Pratik ignored every time. However, I saw something very indifferent in his behavior that he eats in some different way as we meet in a restaurant. The shocking thing was that when I asked him about his and Diya’s love life. He replied in very casual manner, he said, “trust me I don’t remember anything and I never loves Diya. She is not my kind of woman.” I was astonished and asked almost in loud voice, “what are you saying Pratik? Are you all right? You have done love marriage after courtship of six long years. How could you say like this?” He replied aggressively, “it was my mistake. Ok. Moreover, who is Diya? I do not know any Diya. I am going. I am not feeling good.” His eyes were red, his face seems like puffed potato. He left out from the restaurant. I watched him while walking out. And he walked like some uncultured person. Moreover, it was shocking for me. After he left out, I tried to cope up with the situation, as this Man was not the same person I meet before. His way of talking, his facial expression, his eating ways, his walking everything is different now.
That night I called Diya at my place to stay with me. Diya constantly cried for whole night. Next day some lady called Diya and said, “Hello, are you Diya?” “Yes, speaking” replied Diya. Lady continues and said,” If you want Pratik will remain good and safe then leave out from his life silently. It’s not suggestion but warning”. Before we asked anything, she cut off the phone. We tries to ring back her but the number was switched off.
We decided to go to police for help. Police called Pratik to the Police station and talked to him separately. Then police said to Diya that this is their family matter. Police will not be able to help or sought out anything. He suggested us to go to some good lawyer. I came back to home with deep worries and tensions for Diya. Seeing me in such tension our maid asked me about the problem as she knows little bit about this case. I told her about Pratik’s reactions and attitude in restaurant. By listing all the matter very calmly she said, “Madam, its ghost matter. I know you people do not believe in such things but this is truth. I’ve seen so many cases like this.” I stare at her irritatingly. She keeps quit. Nevertheless, her words stroked in my mind for the whole night. Next day early morning, I called Diya and asked her to come for morning walk. We meet and I explained whatever our maid has told me last night. I thought Diya might be getting angry but she remains silent. On my asking, she said that she also guessed such stuffs as her mother in law and sister in law both used to believe in such things too much. Even they applied such things upon Pratik too.
Diya also revealed that Pratik do some strange things which he never did before. I wanted to know all things about his behavior in details. She continues and said that Pratik’s eating habit has changed, every day he wants mutton only. Even he started having tobacco in daily basis. Moreover, his way of talking is also changing gradually. The ferocious thing is that Pratik was never too rude during their intimate relationship. Now a day he is doing various wrong and unusual things during their physical relationship. Diya said further with eyes full of tears that it seems some other man inside Pratik.
I decided to talk about this with my husband. He suggested me to take both of them to a good psychologist as my husband never ever believes in such illogical stuffs. I also agreed with him. I fixed appointment with one of the best psychologist in Kolkata. On the fixed date, they both visited to the chamber. The psychologist diagnosis that Pratik is suffering from split personality problem. I told Diya that she should have to be strong. Pratik’s medicines have been started as per prescription. 15 days passed away after medication but no recovery and one evening Pratik were fainted. Pratik was admitted in hospital. Doctor Diagnosed his blood pressure is fluctuating and this is very strange case.
After all these, finally Diya and I decided to visit to someone who knows black magic and all such stuffs. I saw a poster of one person who knows black magic. It was far away from the city. After the journey of 2 hours, we have reached that place. It was in some village. We never meet or see such person in our life before. So we were bit confused. We saw many people were sitting outside his room waiting for him to come and solve their problems. After sometime, that person came out from his room. He was a tall thin man, wore some black gown. He also wore many kinds of crystal chains around his neck. His eyes were big and bright. His hands seem too rough. However, his face was so bright. We sat before him. He stares at our faces and smiled. We feels some uneasy. He said, “Be comfortable mothers. Do not worry. I will take out that Gin (ghost) from your house. But until that, you have to hold your patience. I know you are in big trouble as your husband has been targeted by evil’s eye. It is dangerous but I know the solution.” We both were silent and astonished how come this man knows everything. He continues and said, “Someone keep something very negative which has been brought straight from graveyard. That thing is somewhere in your bedroom. Go and search that first and then come to me with that thing. I will uproot your problem.” With all respect, we bid good-bye to him and return to our homes.
Next day I visited to Diya’s place after her husband left for office. I noticed that her mother in law seems bit nervous. Tension reflects clearly from her face. Now Diya and I started searching that thing in her bedroom. But before that, I locked her room from inside. We searched frantically. At every possible place, but we could not found anything. I also commented that he was a fake person. Suddenly Diya remember that we missed one place to search. We opened up her bed box. She saw something is covered with red cloth wrapped in Pratik’s shirt. We took out that thing and we both screamed. It was a human skull with red vermillion upon its head.
We both get afraid. I immediately called my husband. He told me to call the police. Diya immediately called the police. Police came and now everybody knows about this. Neighbors started give their different opinions. Upon Diya’s statement police arrested her mother in law and sister in law too. They called Pratik also to the police station. Police asked us how we knew about this; we explained everything about that monk. Next day police arrested that monk and brought him to the police station. That person seems very calm and peaceful as if he was aware of all such things previously. He agreed that he gives us all the information. Police interrogate him and he confessed that he said that with all his powers he is capable to know about all these. But law needs logic and proof. He also said that its pratik’s sister who have done this nasty stuff to kill him for property. After a strong interrogation, Pratik’s sister confessed that she is the culprit. She said, “I was never being happy in my own life for different reasons. My husband is in some extra marital relationship. Whenever I saw Diya, a jalousie works inside my mind as my brother loves her so much. He is caring, loving and what not. He has done everything to keep Diya happy. I also want so. But I never get such in my life. I wanted to see the same problems in her life to satisfy my ego and jalousie.” She further screamed loudly and said, “I want to see her unhappy like me.”
Diya and Pratik stands like statues. It seems they are not being able to believe whatever they are witnessing right now. Then that monk came to them and told Diya to continue the medicines of Pratik. And with the permission of inspector, he left out from police station. Police warned that man not to get out of state until the case will be solved. He nodded his head and said,” I am always besides good people. I will definitely come whenever needed.”
Later after few months Diya‘s mother in law paralyzed. Her sister in law is in mental asylum under jurisdiction order. Pratik still visit to psychologist for treatment, as he could not be able to memorize what was happening. Diya joined a new job.
I told my husband about that monk, as expected he did not believed me. We decided to visit him. Next day we both reached that village and visited that place where we meet him previously. But I was shocked to see that place. It was an abandoned temple of lord Shiva. I asked many people about that man but nobody recognized him. My husband said that I also need psychiatrist. I immediately called Diya to prove my husband that I am telling the truth. Diya told my husband that yes we meet with such a monk. And my logical husband said that Diya and I , we both need a good sleep. Now I really lose my temper upon my husband. I immediately called to police inspector who interrogates that monk. He also said yes, but we did not arrest him. He came to police station by himself. After hearing such words from police incharge now, my husband gets silent and just said, “I really don’t understand what is going on. I need to sleep.”
After coming back to home, I am still confused, who was that monk? Does people of that village lied? How did he know everything about us? What exactly happened to Pratik? Do ghosts really exist? Really black magic works? My logics fail every time whenever I started analysis these question inside me. Still I am in search of my answers.
Hope I will come back soon with another story where perhaps I will find my answers.
