Really !I went to badrinath on 8th may with my family and returned yesterday night. This incident happened nearby devprayag yesterday morning. I was driving and my wife sitting on the left side with open mirror. I was driving at medium speed and we both heard a loud scary shout of 1 or 2 people. I was shocked while driving and my heart started pumping fast. My wife also heard that voice and asked me what was that as she felt scary. I asked my parents if they heard any voice, they said no. The voice was like if someone hit by car and shout. There was no soul that time on the road and river flowing deep below on our left. My parents forced me not to stop the car. We wife looked back but could not find anyone. I tried to search today if there is anything on that road and found the news on dainik jagran that 3 days back 14 people died in bus accident near devprayag. I tried to find the spot with name of village and I believe that spot was nearby where we heard that loud scary shout.
I thought to share this as first time I experience something scary after driving multiple times on that route.

When is tomorrow ?Let me share another one.
My college days
It was close to midnight. 10 frenz including me relaxing at some person's room after networks exam in the evening.
We hadn't eaten anything since morning.
We were hungry. What to do?
5 kms far there is a highway <> Yamunanagar - Ponta Sahib. Few dhabas as there, namely
Maharaja Dhaba > Famous for its shahi paneer
Green view dhaba > famous for nothing
That's ok but who will go and bring food.
3 people agreed after lots of push
1. Sandeep Dhawan who will be driving a HP registered LML NV (without papers)
2. Dheeraj Rustagi
3. Gaurav Sharma
All three on a single scooter without helmet.
Hardly 3 kms we had driven. Suddenly felt movements/noises of something in the darkness. There were no street lights or flood lights.
Something fishy seems to be in motion.
We stopped and looked around.
Some guys caught us from behind the bushes. Asked us to leave scooter there only.
Guess what happened next?
