Do you like chicken curry?

This is how we like our chicken. These waiting chickens have seen it all - all their friends and family killed. Can you see fear in their eyes? This is the way chicken in Patna or rest of the country is sold. You go to the shop and choose a chicken, the butcher drags it out of the cage, cuts of the neck and places it in a drum till it stops twitching and then cuts it into small pieces according to your taste. Enjoy your curry!

Real ghost and paranormal stories from Bihar

When I was growing up as a child, I used to visit my grandparents house “nanighar” in Munger district (Bihar) during the summer holidays. I thoroughly used to enjoy myself and had a lot of fun with other cousins. We used to go the fields and the pond (talaab) and roam whole day. However, there was one thing that really scared me. The house we used to live in seemed very scary. Some of the rooms were dark and there was no electricity to lighten the place up. In addition, there were too many ghost stories flying around one of which scared me to death. That one was about the ghost outside the toilet. You can read about it in my book. I have collected a list of real life ghost and paranormal stories in this book. It’s available on all Amazon stores. Here’s the USA and the Indian one.
