A Ghost story sans Ghost


Disclaimer: This story is not for the weak hearted. So click the navigation button and go to my other blogs which will kill you sooner.

Prologue: boy with a yellow bag and shining yellow shirt (imagine Ramarajan) walking into the gates of the Law university. You should have guessed by now, being a true Indian film watchers, he is the hero of the story. His name is Arun. Imagine a closeup shot of his eyes(Kan Kan Kan Kan Kan Roger Moore pollae :P)then a building in the size of a housing unit flat and this is surrounded by trees and plants (ஒரு அடர்ந்த காட்டுள்ள ஒரு பாழ் அடைஞ்ச பங்களா). The entire university is less than 5 acres-probably the smallest university in India. So being his first day in a city college he enters in with his left foot, because he is a left footed person (but right handed).

His seniors caught him during interval for ragging. They called him as JIGUCHIGAN JIGUCHIGAN JIGGAA, for the choice of his shirt color, but they didn't know that this is his KULAASAAMI's(his family god's) favorite color. Then from that day onwards they called him JIGU. So our Jigu's first day of college started with a boring ragging of proposing to a tree, where our Jigu's satturn in the tongue made him to ask his senior, "Bro, show me a good looking girl in your class let me propose her..." Thats it they made him to stay back after the college hours., he also was waiting with them till 6.30PM, listening to all their mokkais, when one of the senior girls came to the rescue of Jigu, she threatened her classmates and said,"Release him, I complaint Director" (In vadivelu style, "Put Chuttney, I complaint Warden"). So she took Jigu @ Arun to Kalyani bakery (the official bakery of the law university students) and got him Masala chai, then she told him the most scary thing Jigu ever heard in life, "Arun, don't stay back in the university after 6. The university building is haunted. There is a female ghost (she is the villi ghost of the story) in the premises. She was raped and murdered by an ex minister who was living in this building before it was given to our university. So she haunts this place and there is a possibility of encountering her as she hates guys", Arun asked innocently,"Why? is she a lesbian ghost?" being a guy who is from village and who has been to graveyards even at midnight before (buildup for the hero of the story). The senior replied, "You better be careful, thats all I can say."

Two days after this, மசாலா டீபறக்கும் கோப்பையுடன் ஒரு ஆவி கதை (after the ghost warning over the masala tea in the bakery)story, Arun had a new mate in his class, she said her entire family is into dark magic and black magic and that she could feel a negative vibe around the university premises, so she said possibility of a ghost haunting in the university. Arun kept quite as he dint wanna give any leads to her as she might develop on it and can make it a Vittalacharya movie. Again two days later (can you notice a pattern of two days in between all these incidents- does that mean the ghost is active only two days once???) the same girl came to Arun and told him, "Arun, its true there is a ghost in our university premises, she especially moves around in the long corridor in the first floor", Arun interrupted, "Wait, what the duck(Arun is a decent boy- never uses the F word nor the B word- he says BASKAR or BASKET instead of the B word)(hero buildup again)there is no long corridors in the first floor, we have a small classroom with no ventillation for the seniors- which is a revamped bed room and then the adjacent library- which is a revamped kitchen?", she replied, "Yeah da thats what I meant, that area is where she is haunting, and I spoke with her, her name is Vega" Arun," STD charges or ISD charges? whats her no?" She,"Stop it ! don't joke around she might be hearing us. I spoke to her and she said she will not harm any of the staffs during the morning hours, so its better for us to leave the premises before it gets dark", Arun, "But Asok anna (the librarian of the university- new hero in the story) stays back everynight you know he works on our database, he works on setting up a high tech library for us", She," Is it? ask him to be careful too if you know him." Arun, " Ok no worries bye", She, "Yeah its 5:57 now, we just have 3 minutes to leave the campus" She literally runs away, Arun follows her slowly with a smile.

After two days, another senior of Arun, takes Arun out for a masala tea at Kalyani bakery, She, "Arun, do you know our university is haunted, don't stay back after 6,", Arun, "Aiyoooooo...please I have heard enough, let me pay for the tea but please no story about Vega again".


Arun was so curious after hearing all about Vega, so he befriended the university security- who is also the night watchman for the university two days later. Arun asked him, "Mohan anna is it true that there is a ghost in the university?" Mohan anna, "Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha, go and read your books, don't ask me unnecessary questions, else it will result in some serious consequences...", Arun didn't know how to move forward.

Two days later he became the room mate of the librarian in the university, Asok anna. Two days later they became very good brothers. Arun noticed every night after dinner, Asok anna going to the university to do his work. So, two days later he asked him, "Anna can I come with you to the university", Asok anna thought for two seconds then said, "Ok, but keep some Vibhuthi (the holy ash given in temples) on your forehead", Arun was more curious and confused than ever, so he also put a lengthy white line on his forehead and started to walk to the university from the house they were staying, all they had in hand was a small pen torch light and their mobile phones. When they reached the gate of the university Arun saw a heap of dark something right at the entrance of the building, it looked like a dumped cloth bundle, but all of a sudden it moved, first its hands came out and slowly it got up, for a second Arun's heart skipped its beat and asked Asok anna, "What is that?", Asok anna didn't reply instead, "Mohan anna, open the gates", the cloth bundle replied, "Ok Sir". Arun's heart ridiculed him, "What the heck man, you are a brave man after all". Arun was composed now, so was climbing the stairs to the first floor along with Asok anna, he heard this voice in his heart, "that area is where she is haunting" so Arun felt a shrill as he took every step in the stairs, he slowly brought in the courage when Asok anna inserted the key into the classroom(ex-bedroom:might be the scene of crime), "Asok anna, is it true that there is a ghost in the university", click, the key get clicked and Asok anna rotated the key, the door opened with a trumpet and bass effect, Asok anna turned around with a serious face and said, "People before me said they used to hear the anklet sound and smell jasmine flower at night, but so far I have seen or heard nothing".

That whole night Asok anna was working in his computer and Arun was playing in his mobile. They didn't hear or feel a thing that night. Slowly the university developed with 3 more buildings for the courses. But till he left the college the story of Vega was circulating around. Even Arun had told this story to many of his juniors.

Chapter-1

Arun has passed out of that university now, he is working now. One fine day he visits his university again but finds it devastated, everywhere he finds it to be covered by cactus and other wild plants, insects and no sun light at all even in the day time. Arun gets bit tensed, he didn't know what to do so he goes in search for the persons working there, he runs and runs and runs and runs till he couldn't run anymore when he found Asok anna, walking out of the admin block of the university, Arun asked him, "What happened anna?". Asok anna replied, "Its all over Arun, Vega took over the university." Arun shocked, "Isn't there a way out of this anna?" Asok anna, "Yeah there is only one way and it can be done only by you" Arun, "Tell me anna I will do anything for my university" Asok anna, "There is a power off switch in the corridor of the first floor, if you go and on it then everything will be back to normal, but if you fail to do it thats the end of it" Arun, "Do not worry" and he leaves...THE END.
P.S: Because thats when my alarm clock rang and had to get up.
P.P.S: The title is so because, you all heard about Vega but never saw her in the post, so he he he...

Why should Arun's lady friend rush out from the campus at 6? Is the ghost really a lesbian (thread for more blogs!)

To say the least, this is KandrAAVI.
