Ghosts And Spirits Released From Banyan tree
By: RSS/News Feeds

“The Banyan Tree” is the National Tree of India. This huge tree has the widest reaching roots of all known trees. It sends off new shoots from its roots, so that one tree is really a tangle of branches, roots, and trunks. The banyan tree regenerates and lives for an incredible length of time-thus it is thought of as the immortal tree. India has a long history of honoring this tree & it figures prominently in many of the oldest stories of the nation.

But here is an interesting story of ghosts & spirits which were staying on a Banyan tree, which got released from it when it was cut down recently.

“Kothakurssi” is a place in Palakkad district in Kerala state of India which abounds in Banyan trees. Recently “Kothakurssi” had experienced seven accidental deaths and been cursed by the phenomenon of several people suddenly and inexplicably taking ill, all in a matter of 10 days.

To explain all sudden deaths an aged mullah vaguely recalled a similar phenomenon occurring in his childhood, when two kurikkals (Muslim physicians with magical powers) had been summoned from afar to investigate it and suggest remedies.

They had attributed the phenomenon to certain disgruntled spirits in the vicinity. They had propitiated the spirits and, with their magical powers & settled them in a banyan tree.

It was the very same tree, the mullah remembered, that had been mowed down just the week before the first of the recent accidental deaths.

The spirits, released from the tree, could well be at large again, he said. Everybody knew of the cutting down of the tree. The tree was cut as its roots were threatening the foundation of a shop.

Do you find any logic in such weird thinking of people over there or its just a case of superstition among the dwellers in the area that they are attributing all sudden deaths & illness to releasing of ghosts & spirits from the Banyan tree. Readers comments are welcome.
