The story I am about to tell you guys happened to me when I was about 16 years old. This particular incident made me a believer in ghosts. It happened in Mumbai.
I went to the Mumbai Suburban Railway station (most of the intercity travel in Mumbai is done through trains) and had missed the last train. I had to wait for 3 hours now before the train services would start again. So I decided to spend the night at the train platform itself as there was nowhere else to go. Around 2 in the morning, a strange man appeared in front of me.
He was wearing the uniform of an Indian Naval Officer. He immediately started a conversation with me. The officer had a son who was about my age and he started to tell me many stories about his son's childhood.
He told me which type of food his son eats, what fashion trends he prefers, which school he wants to get admission in for 11th Grade and so forth. I was a bit surprised as the fashion trends preferred by the officer's son sounded a bit odd, odd in the sense that it was very old , that kind of fashion trend, even for my father. So yeah it sounded ancient to me.
And the school which he preferred, I had not even heard of it before all the while the officer insisted that it was one of the best schools in Mumbai.
When I asked him what he is doing on the platform since there is no train for another 2 hours, he replied that he was searching for his wallet. It had fallen off his pocket while travelling from the train .
He replied that he wanted to buy something ( I cannot remember the name) which his son absolutely loved, but could not do so without his wallet. The man talked with me until the first train arrived.
Upon arrival the man said that he would love my company on the train. His stop was a few stops after mine. Upon reaching my stop, the officer decided to say one final goodbye and stepped outside the train. Upon stepping out of the train compartment, he just vanished into thin air in front of me.
This scared me to some extent. Upon returning home I was not able to tell anyone anything out of shock.
