Experience description:  

Many such mystical as well as few miracles have happened with me....As I came to know that this site is for research and further studies on such happenings I wish to share it. 

This happened long time before  my NDE which I have already posted. At this happening my age was 16 years. My cousin brother was newly married and his wife had given birth to a baby girl. My cousin brother was called by my uncle who stayed at Hazaribagh Jharkhand (this town is hilly area located in eastern state of India) for some business. And so he went there to meet him. After his task was complete there he had his return train tickets from Gaya to Punjab. As there still is no railway station in Hazaribagh he had to come to Gaya by bus to catch the train. He sat on a mini bus which was available that day for Gaya. He had his belongings and toys which uncle had sent for his new born child. There were total 11 people travelling on that mini bus. As the bus reached Barrachatti (a village near Gaya) a cow came from somewhere in between the road and to save the cow the driver of the mini bus lost control and the bus rolled down the valley and crashed. All the 11 people died on the spot including the driver. My cousin’s head was cut from rest of his body and suffered many injuries and died on this road. Now this accident took place in January. And no one knew about this. Uncle thought he might have reached his house at Punjab and we also thought that he might be at his home. As this accident happened near a small remote village outside the city we didn’t read about it in any newspaper nor any media reported about it. Only later we came to know that in some local newspaper near the area had published this report.   

Now time passed by and it was now about 5 days that he had died. On this fifth day I was sitting on a chair in the night in my room and studying as I had a class test in school in the morning. All of a sudden I felt a bit dizzy and what I saw was a broken bus which had met with an accident and things scattered everywhere and my cousin brother all in blood and trying to come out from the bus. At that time my pet dog started barking and I felt a bit scared and uneasy and thought to call my mom. The dog behaved strangely and he barked furiously and jumped at the door of my room and tried to push that open. He pulled my clothes and barked at me to open the door. (When my cousin brother used to visit our house he always brought treats for my dog and also took him on his lap and used to love him) Seeing my dog at the door I felt as if someone was at the door and I got up and opened it. No one was outside. Only dark night but the dog barked continuously and went towards the terrace of my house. No sooner the dog left I heard a strange sound. Some male voice which said “I am dead and you all don’t know Take me out from the bus please. Please take me out.” After this my dog again came back to my room barking. Hearing the dog my mom came and asked me what is happening. At this time I was so afraid to speak and was looking at my room all around as if who was here. Then after few seconds I told everything to my mom. But still we couldn’t interpret whose voice was it and who wanted help to come out of a broken bus.  

The next day we received a phone call from my cousin brother’s wife from Punjab and she told us that his husband has not returned and also that she saw a man like her husband soaked in blood near the kitchen window and when she went to look he caught hold of her hair and said “I am dead when will you guys come to know about it. “She also told us now she is afraid that maybe that man is her husband. After these two incidents we got a third too from his brother who heard the similar voice. Now we all were convinced that he was dead and he was trying to send this message across to us. 

At once all in our family began to search him. Police was contacted, we printed posters of his photos and distributed all along the way where he had travelled in case anyone can tell us about him. We all also searched all the hospitals but got no clue. The search went on for two months and still we couldn’t locate him. In the month of March my uncle and other cousins again went towards Gaya from where he had travelled. They went to Gaya hospital and asked the authorities again showing his photographs. No one got any clue. Then a man who was working in the hospital mortuary recognized and said that he does post-mortem of many people daily and he cant recollect each face. But he said I think I have done post mortem of this man too. On again asking him to remember that man said that there was a severe accident of a mini bus about two months back and 11 people dead were sent to him for post mortem so he said might be he is one of them.

He told my uncle the place of accident and asked him to enquire from local police there. On reaching Barachatti the place of accident they met police officials who opened that case file and showed all the photos of the dead which they had taken at that time and what we sadly found was that one of them was my cousin brother. Then we all asked about his dead body and they said that his head was apart from his body and he died on the spot and the toys which he was carrying for his baby child were scattered near him. The police men told that they had taken all the dead to the Gaya hospital mortuary for post mortem. We all again came back to the hospital to that same person who had told about the accident and asked him what he did to his dead body after post mortem and he told that he waited for few days and when no one came to claim the body he threw it in the Ganges river that flowed nearby. Hearing this we all went to the river along with that man and saw many other dead bodies eaten by dogs and vultures near the river and we understood that my cousin brother too might have met the same fate. We all cried and stayed near the river for few hours. Did the prayers there and then came back. We then understood that my cousin brother’s soul came to us and told us about his being dead and about his accident.
