It is like this: My friend named Anand (now deaceased) got married in November 2002. I study in Ahmedabad and I went to Delhi, especially to attend his marriage. On his marriage day after the ceremony was over and he was busy greeting people, from far away I (with gestures and sign language, as i could not shout in the middle of huge gathering) asked him to call me up when he was over with all this. He said he will.
On 25th February 2003 i got to know that Anand had died. He committed suicide. And that call was due since then. On the midnight of 9th June(10th June morning), I was severely ill. I was having cramps in my stomach. And i was not able to sleep. So i slept really late. At around 4:30-5:00am.
As I was
sleeping: I heard my mobile phone ringing. It was loud and clear. I caught hold
of my mobile and saw the screen. It flashed - f!v -(excluding the hyphen) and I
was surprised. I clicked the button to receive the call and I heard Anand's
voice. He said "Chi.......ka(my nickname) Hi (in a happy voice), I am
fine, don't worry about me, you just take care". And all this while I was
repeating Ananad...., Anand...., Anand....you go and meet your wife and sister
and Uncle and Aunty but it got disconnected. There was no dialup tone. Nothing.
It just went blank. It was so real. But suddenly I got up, not with a jerk, but
suddenly and i saw the white wall besides me. And I felt as if I had just talked
to him. I was relaxed and happy to hear his content voice. He seemed to be happy
in his new life. May be happier than he was here. May God bless him.

Did the voice or sound seem to originate externally or outside of you, inside you, or did you not hear a voice or sound, but had a sense of knowing what was communicated? As it was in my sleep state i do not know whether to call it outside of me or inside but as i think-It was outside of me.
If you heard a voice or sound, was it similar or dissimilar from the voice or sound the deceased made when they were alive? the voice was exactly the same as of what it was when He was alive.
Is there any possibility what you heard was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience? No it could not have been as I stay in other city with people who don't even know this friend of mine.
Was there any possible impairment to your hearing at the time of the experience? I don't think so.
How long did the experience last? I am not sure as i was in a state of sleep and was about to wakeup. But i think it must have been less than two minutes in sleep.
Was the beginning and end of the experience gradual or more sudden? I am again not sure about the beginning but the end was sudden and i woke up to see a white wall right besides me.

He was content and happy. Very Satisfied Indeed.
Did the deceased give you information you did not previously know? Not exactly. But He said don't worry about me, I am OK and you take care.
How do you currently view the reality of your experience? Experience was definitely real
Please explain why you view the reality of your experience as real or not real: The term Real is very subjective. What is real for me might not be real for others. But my mind wants to believe that it was real and so i will let myself believe it.
Was the experience dream like in any way? No
It was in a state of sleep but was not dreamlike as everything was really clear. And i remember each and everything of it even today.
Describe in detail your feelings/emotions during the experience: When i heard his voice i was really happy. And i was very excited and was again and again telling him that he should go meet his family as they are still grieving for him so that they feel relaxed and satisfied that He is OK now and they should not grieve for him anymore.
Was there any emotional healing in any way following the experience? Yes
Before the experience i was worried about him and after that i was much relaxed to know that he is fine content and happy in his new life.
What was the best and worst part of your experience? Best part of my experience was my mobile screen flashing - f!v -(as if to say that it for vaishali) and also to hear him calling out my nickname.
Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience? No
Did the experience give you any spiritual understandings such as life, death, afterlife, God, etc.? Yes
I kind of believe in life after death and this experience has just added to strengthen my belief.
What emotions did you feel during the experience? I woke very relaxed. I was having sever cramps night before the experience and after the experience i just forgot all my stomach aches and pains.
Have you shared this experience with others?
Yes, with my friends here where i study, but they thought i was going through mental pressure or something and that as i believe in life after death, so this is my hallucination or just a dream.
Have you shared this experience formally or informally with any other researcher or web site? No
