(Anuj and Prof. chanting together a mantra to get rid of a devil soul. Anuj is not aware of the hole that Prof. Arora accidentally left and is trying to help him to get rid of the problem immediately. Anuj, son of a tantrik and a very famous astrologer Pandit Shankar Maheshwari, practices tantra vidya in a very secret manner. Unlike Prof.Arora he has no intentions to come out as an expert.)
Anuj: “Om krim phat swaha”. Sunny just throw the box away. Don’t wait now.
Prof Arora threw the box in his hand. With a small blast everything suddenly went silent.
Anuj: What the hell was that? You said it’s just a regular soul creating disturbance. You call this a regular ghost?
Prof Arora: I am not sure what I am dealing with. Anuj everything is getting so strange lately. I know this all is my fault and I have to get rid of this as soon as possible.
Anuj: Sunny this is not going to be easy. What do you mean by your fault? Will you just explain? And please do not hesitate in shedding out details. You know I will help.
Prof Arora: It all started when I met Mrinali in Virginia. She was always interested in my work. From minor detail to everything I knew, was in her knowledge. She completed her studies and was planning to come back to India. I had 2 months left with my studies so I asked her either to wait for me or she can come back here and I will join her later. Her parents wanted her to come back so instead of using regular mode of communication to stay in touch for the two month time, she asked me to teach her telepathy. Dadu gave me detailed overview of it so I just shared the knowledge.
In starting it was pretty hard but later on we both became good in it. Somehow, she managed to learn it deeply. The day I planned to come back, I got one thought from her that she is sensing something fishy at home and she knows something is going to happen to her. I called her and asked her to go to my place and stay there until I reach back.
She did the same. I took my flight on 1st September and she was killed in a road accident on 2nd. Everything happened so quickly but left a thought in my mind. I am not sure if this was a message from Mrinali or it is just a thought in my mind but I strongly feel that Mrinali was killed in a properly planned accident.
Anuj: Wait wait. You mean someone murdered her? But why?
Prof Arora: I told you his family follows some guru who thinks I am ruining their family. They threatened me and Mrinali several times not to stay in touch.
Anuj: You are getting insane. Anyway, go ahead.
Prof Arora: I then decided to call her back and talk so that I can find out the reason behind her death. Dadu told me that “Shamshan Vidhi” to call souls back which is way safer than other ways but it was too late for it. I then tried the “Kaal stuti” in which I succeed. She came and started talking to me. First few seconds were fine but then suddenly something went wrong and she started screaming and I freaked out. I accidentally took my hands off the “yantra”. You remember 2 days back suddenly weather changed? That time it happened.
For few minutes everything looked creepy but then it was fine. I thought she went back and I can try later but I forgot Dadu mentioned to close the doors before standing up which I forgot.
Anuj: You are an asshole. Big time. You know what have you done?
Prof Arora: I know. Now tell me what to do.
Anuj: Dadu se poocha?
Prof Arora: Himmat nahi padi…
Anuj: Chal lets see what he has to say in this. I will talk to him. I think only he can help us now. It just won’t end like this.
To Be Continued…

Influenced by his thoughts, Prof Arora did his degree in same field and came back to India to learn more about Indian Tantra. His grandfather was a big hope for him and his notes were helping a lot.
