Stree Movie!! Have you watched it yet or its trailer? How is it? At the starting of the trailer, they have shown that it is based on a ‘ridiculously true phenomenon‘.
The producer claimed that it is based on a real story. By searching various information and asking locals about any real story regarding this claim, I found that it is one of the most infamous urban legends of Bangalore in 1990. Local calls her “Nale Ba” witch.
Nale Ba is a Kannada word which means “Come Tomorrow” in English and “KAL AANA” (Hindi). The mysterious incidence happened dated back nearly 20-30 years ago. The story revolves around the today’s busiest IT city in the world, from a time when it was not so busy. A witch used to be roaming around the street of the Bangalore at night for hunting the prey. Her prime victim was Men. She would knock on the door of the home and lure the men by calling in their loved one’s voice like sister, mother, wife, etc.
So, you see anyone would open by hearing the voice of their loved one, right!! The same trick she used to trap men. Upon hearing the voice, the person would open the door and within 24 hours he dies!! The story of Stree “Nale Ba” Witch spread like wildfire across the city. Some tantric told the locals to write “Nale Ba” on the outside of their door to keep them safe from the witch. It was used to ward off the evil spirit outside the door. When Witch came and she saw the ‘Nale Ba’ (Come Tomorrow), she moved on to next home. It was the only way to get rid of the witch for a while. This would ensure the men that they were safe at least today’s night. But, the cycle of coming and hunting never stopped, it continued forever. But somehow, time went, the story of Stree, washed out. The incidence of sighting Witch had stopped.
Even today, you can see the “Nale Ba” written on the doors of some home to keep the evil spirit away. People celebrate 1st April as Nale Ba Day. It has become a tradition to write the “Nale Ba” at the door.
Though the sighting of Witch had stopped, some similar incidence happened in 2000 also. Yet, it might be real or myth, don’t know. But, if so many people believe in something, there might be some reasons behind these beliefs. One important thing you have to learn from these urban legend’s story whether you believe or not, you have to prepare and capable to defend yourself from any situation. If the same situation happened to you, what would you do? Put yourself in place of these people, you will able to defend yourself in any situation at least for a while. Ok, guys let’s wrap up this article!!
Go and enjoy Stree movie and don’t forget to write your views!!
