It’s Raining Orbs
November 21, 2007
“Many paranormal researchers and enthusiasts firmly believe that orbs are ghosts or spirit souls in the form of balls of light. They are the life forms of those who once inhabited a physical body here on earth.” Such topics intrigue us whenever we come across them in the newspapers or view such events on the numerous documentaries. But how does one feel when they are a part of the real deal? Well, that is exactly what happened to me.
I was collecting holy water from the river Ganga at Sivananda ghat in Rishikesh when these photographs were captured innocently. There was no eerie feeling or perkiness of the sixth sense that I was being watched. But then, one cannot expect to feel such chills on the holy land of Rishikesh. In Hinduism, the river Ganga is not just a flowing water-body but she is Goddess Ganga. Her pure water washes off the sins of sinners just like a lenient mother who forgives her children’s mistakes. She carries with her the prayers offered from the living to their ancestors and the ashes of the dead to a better world.
Actually we are not really surprised with the existence of orbs but are amazed with the proof so clear to the naked eye. We do know that souls are always hovering in places of pilgrimage in the hope of achieving salvation. Souls over this holy water reconfirm their subsistence and that after death, they are moving towards their destination.
Photographs such as these shock us like smelling salts recharging a fainted individual, compelling us to re-evaluate our current existence and the quality of life that we are leading.
