We all love spooky stories! Since childhood, we have heard about many such stories told by our nannies and grannies. A story involving ghosts always sound interesting and if it is based on true events, it definitely gives us goosebumps. Reading such stories is surely fun, but when something paranormal happens in real life, a person’s perspective towards these things gets completely changed.
