A nice and true story
Read it when you have time.
Very nice mail for people working late night.
Neha opened her mail box and saw a new mail from new person
I see you every night sitting in the office till very late. Don’t you
have friends? Don’t you feel like talking to your roommate?
You should not sit very late in the office, this is a genuine advice from me.
After reading the mail, Neha was very angry on the sender. She simply
deleted the mail and said to herself “who is he to give me any
advice”. She again got back to her work.
After that night, every night Rahul would keep sending her mails and
Neha would simply delete them without even reading the content of the
mail. But one fine night the subject line attracted her and she had to
open the mail.
The subject line of the mail was “Hi Gorgeous”.
Yes today you are looking very gorgeous in this red saree.
I know you don’t read my mails as you don’t like the advices I give you.
So today I won't give you any advice, I will just say that I am love with you.
You know you are very beautiful and if you take care of yourself many
men will fall in love with you.
I am sure someday you will also fall in love with me. And then we will
go out for a date.
Oh before I end the mail I must tell you that the best thing about is
that smile. Or is it those intense which needs some sleep at the
Take care dear.
After reading the mail she was shocked. A person she had never met,
never seen, never spoke to was saying that he was in love with her.
She started thinking was this always in his mind. How did he get her
id? Where had he seen her? Many questions like this came in her mind.
Finally she thought of giving a warning and replied to his mail.
I don’t want to spoil your career but if you don’t stop sending me
mails I will raise an ASHI against you.
Thanks and Regards,
After this mail, the mails from Rahul stopped coming in Neha’s inbox.
She thought that finally Rahul has got scared and won't be mailing her
After several nights, Neha was resting on her chair and her eyes
closed. When she opened her eyes she saw Rahul’s mail in her mailbox.
With your closed eyes you were dreaming about me, right? Oh sorry for
not sending any mails in the last few days.
I was a little busy. I am sure you would have missed me a lot.
One more thing before I forget I want to say that I am not scared of
ASHI. An ASHI can't be a reason to stop loving you.
Neha was twisting her hair and putting them behind her ears. At that
moment itself another mail came from Rahul,
Now stop playing with your hair and leave the office, it is very late.
Neha was shocked as to how did this person know what she was doing on
her desk. She got up to check whether anyone was there in her floor
but could find only empty cubicles. She thought maybe he made a wild
guess and decided to leave the office before leaving she saw another
mail from Rahul.
Searching for me??? You have started falling in love with me. J
Neha was shocked and scared to hell. She simply switched off her
machine and ran outside the office. In the next few days she would not
open any mails sent by Rahul. One night a mail with subject line
“Don’t be scared of me” came to her mailbox. First she thought to
ignore the mail then she thought let's see what has Rahul written this
Don’t be scared of me. I can say that you are scared of me because of
the way you ran out from the office the last time you read my mail.
I know few minutes back you had gone to have coffee. You are thinking
how I know this because I can feel you around me.
Only once you also start feeling me you will know that I am near to you.
Very near. Just sitting next to you.
I will wait for the night when you start having the same feelings for me.
Will always love you.
Now Neha started thinking was Rahul really in love with her? What he
was saying was it true? But how could he know so much about her? How
could he say what she was doing and what not? Neha thought let's give
a try and see whether Rahul is always in love with her or not. From
that night she also started replying to his mail.
Do you feel bad if I call you gorgeous?
Yes Rahul. I don’t like this word.
You can address me as Neha, isn’t it short and simple. And I love my name a lot.
Thanks and Regards,
Point noted Neha. But when I am happy, excited I would call you with
some special name at that time.
Tomorrow you have your certification so all the best for that.
Neha was again shocked as to how does he know about her certification.
She had never told him. She replied Rahul,
Who is the person who is giving you details about me? I had not told
you about my certification how do you know it?
Thanks and regards,
Rahul replied back to her
I know it because I am in front of you. Can't you see me? Can't you
feel me close to you?
I also know that after 3 days you have your appraisal. Now this you
have not told anyone. Just your PM knows about it. Do you think your
PM will give me all these details?
Neha not sure of the answer. She knew her PM would not have told Rahul
all this but how did Rahul know so much about her was a mystery for
her. Finally she thought she will talk to her PM, Rohan.
Next day, she went to her PM’s desk.
“Hi Rohan. I wanted to ask you something”.
Rohan:- “Sure Neha. Are having any issues?”
Neha:- “No. actually I wanted to know about a person named Rahul Mehra.”
Rohan was shocked on hearing that name.
Rohan:- “How did you come across this name. Has anyone told you about him?”
Neha:- “No one has said anything to me about him. Few days back he
started sending me e-mails. First I ignored but then he would give
such details which I did just few minutes back. He even knows my
Rohan:- “Are you sure you got mails from Rahul Mehra only?”
Neha:- “Yes very much. But why do you look shocked?”
Rohan:- “Because Rahul Mehra died 2 years back. He use to sit at the
same place where you are sitting. How can a dead person send mails to
Neha was shocked. She didn’t know how to react to this.
Rohan:- “If you don’t believe me then you can try finding his name in
the telephone directory. Maybe someone told you about him and because
of work stress you started imagining that he is sending you mails.”
Neha:- “I am not imagining anything. He has really send me a mail. I
can show you in my mailbox.”
Rohan:- “Okay Neha I believe you but still I think you should take a
break and go home.”
Neha was still in shock with the news she got from Rohan. She just did
a search on telephone directory for a name with Rahul Mehra and page
returned no records. She again checked the mail id and employee number
details. She did a search many times that day by putting various
combinations but the search page displayed the same message “No
matches found for the given search criteria”. She could not believe
that someone could hack the system and send mails to her from an
non-existing id. She attached the mails sent by Rahul and sent it to
Rohan as a proof that she was not dreaming.
On seeing the attached mails even Rohan was in shock. He came to Neha’s desk.
Rohan:- “I think by mistake his id has not been deleted and someone
who knows about it is playing with it.”
Neha:- “But I checked the details on telephone directory there are no
records available for this id.”
Rohan:- “Talk to the CCD people and see what they have to say.”
She called up the CCD people. They took control over her system and
looked at the mail sent by Rahul Mehra. The mail was sent from the
same computer which Neha was using. The time stamp at which the mails
were sent Neha had logged in. Also there was no evidence that a remote
desktop connection was made or mail was sent through web mail. Even
the CCD people were clueless as to how a mail has been sent from a
non-existing id and from Neha’s system itself.
There were no viruses or torjans or any other kind of threats on
Neha’s system. Her anti-virus was up to date. The whole day was gone
in finding a loophole as to how did Neha get such a mail in her
mailbox. Neha was tierd from the day’s happening and so she decided to
leave early from the office that day.
The next day when Neha came back, she saw a mail from Rahul Mehra. She
didn’t know whether she should delete that mail or read that mail. She
was scared to open the mail. Somehow she gained some courage and
opened the mail. The context of the mail was:-
Good to see that you left the office early tonight. I know Rohan told
you about my death. I was also a workaholic like you. I would sit late
in the office, even when no one was around me.
I just being at office. I had no friends, no social life. Even on
weekends I would use to come to office.
I missed all the fun in my life. Even my death happened at office
while I was working. My dead body was found by the house keeping guy
and the security guard at the reception. I took a lot of work stress
which my conscious mind could not bear that day. I ignored all the
health problems I was having. And finally on that night (20. 10. 07,
11:24 PM) all these reasons became responsible for my death.
Now you know why I am not scared of ASHI.
But yes if I was alive then also I won't be scared of ASHI because I
have really fallen in love with you but we can't be together until
Now the choice is yours whether you will kill yourself on your own or
whether I need to do the honors.
Waiting for your death. Love you always.
Some love stories have ghost in it
