School enlists exorcist for possessed student

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Chhatrapal Singh, principal in-charge of the school at Kairagaon in Okhalkanda block, said, “A class 7 student was possessed last Thursday and started doing bizarre activities like breaking chairs and shouting loudly.”

“When other girls tried to calm her down and offered water, the influence spread to them as well. Over the next 3-4 days, five girls were possessed. They started shouting loudly, dancing, jumping here and there,” he said.

I've heard from Christian Missionaries that have gone to India, that such possessions are pretty much everyday events in much of the country. 

To some extent, what we'd (In the USA and Europe) call "Stress", "Anxiety", and "Depression", they think are created by spirit possession...

That explains a lot, the different belief systems. It's always sounded silly to me but i bet we do to them too, so I wonder if there is anything to thier ideas that we are missing. Or environmental problems going on like exposures.

Sounds like contagious hysteria to me. This often occurs in a school setting. One girl had an emotional outburst and triggered the same in others. The detail about dance-like movements is telling. See a link below to an article on dancing mania, a somewhat similar phenomenon, once well known in Europe.

I don't see that we have any need to condemn someone for advancing a religious explanation, appropriate to the surrounding culture. Nor are sophisticated and educated persons immune to hysterical contagion. The cream of European society often reacted to 19th century composer and pianist Franz Liszt in a not-too-dissimilar manner. See the linked article, below, on 'Lizstomania'.

Yep, don't expect future scientists to come out of this batch of students.

It can't be kids being jerks or any number of psychological or even physical disorders. Nope. Must be the devil. Hey, witch doctors, shamen and priests need work too.
I guess all of India's best and brightest scientists/doctors all live in Europe and the Americas.

Who's to say this student isn't possessed?  Indians are more spiritual than us heathens in the West.

Alternatively..... he might just be a tw*t.  :yes:

Really? Hindu is just as ignorant and backwards as the Abrahamic religions. Sure, a few of the faithful are deep and spiritual people... But like any organized religion with millions of followers, most are bigoted, greedy. self-righteous, and lazy-minded skin bags.

Those who would call an exorcist into the school to take care of this.

It worked didn't It?

Is the ritual stupid, or the overall culture that allows for these things to happen?

:P
