An Individual by the name of Varun had been working in an automobile industry as an accounts executive and cashier and used to work from 11 pm to 8 pm every day.

Once it was a usual working day for Varun and he finished all his work as accounts executive around 6.25 pm and went to his cash counter, as he used to work as a cashier after 6.30 pm.

He worked for about an hour or so and closed the cash counter around 7.45 pm and had to lock accounts department as it was the closing time of the office, hence went up to the accounts floor and was about to enter the cabin when he saw his colleague Ajay in the room who saw him entering and informed him regarding the meeting which has been temporarily postponed due to some on going situation and hence was relieved from attending the meeting and was now leaving towards his home, saying this, Ajay went to the room in which they usually keep their belongings.

Varun was going in right behind him when he received a call which he picked up not looking over it and hearing the voice of the person calling him brought shivers in his body as he was shocked to hear the voice of Ajay who he had just talked to seconds ago.

He said that there has been an accident of some person who was to attend the meeting and hence the meeting was postponed but thinking he was just having bad dream he cross checked the number and was petrified to find Ajay's number in the received call a second ago.

Shivering he went into the room where Ajay had just entered a minute ago thinking Ajay might have called from in there just to scare Varun but found no one in the room or cabin. Just then he received another call from his team head saying he had been calling Varun since 10 minutes but Varun had not received the call. Varun asked the reason for which his team head had called him and after hearing what he said he couldn't handle the shock and shivering in his body and fainted right in his place.

He was found fainted the next day in his office and was taken to the hospital and he recovered in half a day but took several days to come out of the shock he had suffered.

Apparently, the meeting had been stopped and postponed as a man who was to attend the meeting had suffered a serious accident and was spot dead as a truck had driven over his body. The man who was dead there in the accident around 7.30 pm was Mr Ajay with whom Varun had spoken 15 minutes later!!!:o
