Hex or Hoax #BlogchatterA2Z

Look, I don’t believe in anything supernatural and/or paranormal mumbo jumbo,” Shalini said forcefully and with cetain amount of derision, “what I see, what I hear and what I feel, I believe.” 

Samsher and Shalini were having dinner with friends. 

I agree with you Shalini,” Som joined in, “believing in power of stars, I got my horoscopes matched; look where my marriage landed.

Sam said I am a believer because I have heard stories and seen things with my own eyes.  


Rana Yajuvendra Singh, ruler of Ajabgarh, had joined Mewar army in a war. Issueless king went to battle, keeping his crown on a spike in the custody of royal priest. Priest had put a hex, if any non royal touched the crown, the person would die. King was killed in the battle. Despite several attempts, jewel is still there in the royal temple at Ajabgarh fort.” 

This is pure nonsense, Sam,” Shalini protested, “if it was true people would have plundered the jewel by now.”

After a few adventure seekers made an attempt to recover the jewel lost their lives mysteriously,” Sam continued, “government has taken control of the fort. The  royal temple remain sealed.

Me and my friend Malki, a.k.a Malkhan Singh were one of many such curious visitors to the site of the legend,” Sam resumed his story, “we trekked through the reserve forest of Sariska to reach the fort and the temple inside the fort. There it was sitting at the feet of deity.”


This is majestic!”, Malki went berserk looking at the jewel,  “I want it; it will fetch a fortune.”

Don’t invite god’s wrath Malki. This stone is under protection of reigning deity of this fort.”

I don’t believe in power of magic. I did not walk all the way to just have a peek. What good is it here anyway? At least, we shall have a some money.


A leopard was following us for some distance now, unknown to us. As Malki bend down to unseat the stone, the predator pounced.


There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy,” Sam commented, “I am a mere mortal. I believe in the unseen and unknown power of Hex.”

  1. Whoa, that was interesting. I’m not a believer but I don’t completely write off the possibility of existence of paranormal things too. There are some things which cannot be explained. The panther following them could’ve been mere coincidence too.

    1. That is a all new discussion, beyond the scope. Personal God vs. Nirakara Brahman takes the discussion on hell fire in a different direction. Let us focus on Sam and Shalini.


  2. Interesting story there Abhijit. Sometimes somethings happen that you are forced to believe them even if you are initially against. There is some power in the occult for sure. The power of the mind can move mountains kind.
