2. DUMAS BEACH- Gujarat: - Dumas beach located in India in the state of Gujarat is a popular tourist attraction. This beach with its stark black sand is located along the Arabian Sea just 13 miles (21 kms) from the city of Surat.

The tourists that come to shop do not know Dumas is considered one of the most haunted beaches in India. The locals however are well aware of this since most have encountered these spirits that seem to inhabit even the air.

Many people who live in India believe in ghosts--they call them, “bhoot”. India has the largest percentage of Hindus anywhere in the world. The core belief in the Hindu religion is that once a person dies their soul lives on. This soul is normally in one of two states. The first being, waiting for rebirth in another body--for the Hindus believe in reincarnation.

This belief that the soul hangs around--is the reason there is a larger number of people who believe in ghosts. The second state is when a person’s soul has reached, “moksha”. Moksha is when a person’s soul reaches the highest level--Nirvana or freedom. There is however one exception to these two states and it occurs when one experiences a sudden or horrible death. In this case it is believed these souls linger or even torment the living. The traditional Hindu burial in India involves cremation. It is believed when a person’s earthly remains are turned to ash it allows them to leave their earthly trappings behind without struggle. Dumas Beach is considered a very scary haunted place because it is a cremation ground. Many of the dead cremated here belong in the category of--tormented souls.

The locals often complain, " they hear weird noises or whispers as they walk along the beach.”

Another prevalent complaint is that all the dogs that live in the vicinity of this beach bark and howl all night. For the paranormal activity at Dumas Beach is very active after the sun goes down. Some even state that as they have walked along this beach their dogs have tried to stop them from continuing further. It’s as if their heightened sense of smell and vision warns them before the humans, they protect.

It is often described that the night “air” that surrounds this area is heavy with sadness and weighs the living down. When it is windy this feeling increases.

Needless to say most of the locals avoid this beach at night. But there is another compelling reason they fear this beach. There are documented cases that tourists and locals who have walked this stretch of black sand at night have disappeared. None of them have been found…

8. Kuldhara Village, Rajasthan: - Lying 17km west of Jaisalmer, KULDHARA has a story. Some 300 years ago, it used to be a prosperous village of Paliwal Brahmins under the state of Jaisalmer. According to the legend, the evil eyes of Salim Singh, the powerful and debauched prime minister of the state, fell on the daughter of the village head and he desired to marry her by force. He threatened the village with grave consequences if they did not adhere to his wish. Instead of submitting to the order of the tyrant, the Paliwals held a council and people of 85 villages left their ancestral homes and vanished. But this was not all; before leaving, they put a curse on Kuldhara that no one will ever be able to settle in their village thereafter. To this date, the village remains barren; left almost the same as its inhabitants had left it centuries ago. It is also said that people who have tried to stay there at night have been chased away by strange paranormal phenomenon.

Another, more plausible reason can be that Salim Singh raised the taxes to such an extent that it became unviable for the local community to survive in the village; and they thus decided to migrate to greener pastures. However, people love the former story; after all, who doesn't want a tinge of romance and mystery in their tales!

Kuldhara is a desolate place with a forlorn look and bring sadness to the heart when one thinks of those unfortunate people who were forced to leave the land of their forefathers. However, the place doesn't seem to be spooky for any reason other than the legends themselves, and for our own perception based on those stories. Though there is sadness in the air, there is hopefully nothing cursed about it.
