hi I’m Carol and I got my hair pulled by a ghost my name is Swati Shukla and once in a while if you’re a kid you’ll have an encounter with something spooky and you won’t know what it is at the time but then one day you realize this is that ghost story [Music] I am the oldest of two siblings when I was a kid I lived in Texas for a couple of years it was a two-story house and there was an entrance and a staircase that kind of swirled upstairs and then the entrance is here right and then there’s a little hallway and then through that hallway you go to a living room so one day I was playing upstairs on top of the staircase with like my fire trucks because I played with trucks and my parents put my sister to sleep in her crib in a bedroom like probably right about here and they walked down the stairs and they went through that hallway and they went to the living room so I was playing on my staircase and I looked down the staircase and I saw like my sister at the bottom of the staircase so I was kind of weirded out and I was like what is she doing down there that’s so strange I should probably call my parents it’s all hurt them to put her in the crib and then I remembered oh wait they already put her in the crib so what is she doing down there and then I got a second look and I realized that it was whiter than my sister and I had big black eyes other than that completely identical so I started freaking out I screamed for my parents I looked away they ran over I started screaming look down there it’s niha why is she down there and when we looked back there was nothing there my parents never saw it it was just me they took my temperature to make sure I wasn’t having a fever and hallucinating or anything I wasn’t sick I wasn’t tired I remembered it like clear as day I still remember it today so every two years I would take these trips to India and when I turned 18 that happened to be one of those India trips and when I went there my grandma was braiding my sister’s hair and my grandma my sister my mom and I were all just like sitting on the bed talking and then my grandma like interrupts our conversation and turns to my mom after she’s done braiding my sister’s hair and she says that’s so interesting or through her hair parted to the left that means that her twin would have been a girl and I sat there and I was like what and I looked at my mom and I was like what is Nani talking about and my mom was like well I never told you this but I miscarried your sisters twin and that’s when I realized that thing that looked identical to my sister was my sister’s dead twin no one else has ever seen her I guess my mom kind of sort of has but like it was no one else has seen this specific entity I’ve talked to my parents about this since then like I brought it up in India and it’s believed that there’s ghosts all around I mean they believe in black magic in India so it didn’t come as a shock you know I don’t know why she showed herself to me maybe she was upset that like she didn’t have a playmate wherever she was I don’t know what it was but maybe she just wanted me to know like hey that wouldn’t have been your only sister you would have had twice the drama on your life no I would tell people who don’t believe in ghosts that you don’t believe in them till you experience it yourself I myself I’m friends with a person who like doubts very much the existence but he’s it’s really weird he’s like been through a bunch of weird supernatural things and he’s still like I don’t know but I think that’s like I’m just trying to protect themselves my story is real I can confirm it you can call me crazy but they’re out there and if you don’t think they’re out there you would be wrong because they’re real I grew up in apartments basically my whole life so I remember I wasn’t in school yet I know that for sure so I was pretty young and there was a bedroom off in the corner here one in the middle and then of the bathroom so there’s a hallway between all of that one day I was home with my sisters and we’re just hanging out in the room off in this corner here I had to go use the bathroom and I started jetting across the hallway and as I was passing this room here something grabbed my hair and yanked yanked it back I remember bursting into tears because it was pretty painful and my neck was really sore the moment that happened my sisters came rushing out because I started crying and they were all like what’s wrong what’s wrong what’s the matter and I was like one of you guys pulled my hair and I was really adamant about one of them having pulled my hair and they were all adamant that none of them had done it and they were trying really hard to actually comp me down and shush me because being the baby of the family it’s like if your parents walked in and babies crying everybody’s in trouble so they were trying really hard to kind of just shush me and calm me down but to this day they claimed that they they didn’t do it but I did get my hair pulled and it was not fun another incident that happened in this particular unit my two older brothers were watching TV late one night and they saw my dad go into the kitchen to get something out of the refrigerator and it had been a few moments and they realized he never came out of the kitchen so they went to look and it turns out he was never in the kitchen he was still asleep in bed and the room my parents slept in was that room in the middle of the hallway that I was whizzing past when I got my hair pool I come from a culture that really believes in it and embraces that there are other things among us I’ve always believed in ghosts my whole life and I still do because I’ve had numerous accounts with things that were unexplained this is only one of them some were more intense than that but they’ve all been things that we’re just apparitions and shadows but things that I had like physical interaction with it so to speak I’m not gonna try and convince anybody what to believe I know what my experiences were and I know what state I was in at the time that they were happening it’s very real to me there are things that even science can’t quite explain I don’t think we’re supposed to know everything we’re not meant to there’s so many mysteries in the world I’m a lot of things that aren’t meant to be just that a mystery
