Do you love to travel?? Well..most of us love to travel different places .. some of them are a lone traveller? Some of us unable to decide whether to travel alone or with friends. I personally don’t decide to travel alone…because I get bored and most importantly…I feel insecure not because of the thief but bloody thirsty SPIRIT!!! Whether you believe in ghost or not..but in our unconscious mind we have that feeling..someone is looking at US!!!
Sometimes beautiful places have some dark secrete hidden. Same would be applicable to one of the beautiful place in India.. God’s own Land.. “KERALA”.
Have you visited Kerala? Which mode of transportation you used??. Car or train?? If you have visited Kerala by road, have you ever encounter with beautiful lady standing near the road in the woods?? If you are reading this that means you didn’t get attracted and tried to approach towards her..otherwise you won’t able read this article!!!
Have you heard Yakshi?? The beautiful lady will lure you and once you fall her for her beauty, she will drink your blood. You can find Yakshi reference in Puranas. Yakshi is the female version of Yaksha.
Yakshi is a well-known character in southern India. A female spirit wandering around the isolated places mostly found in Kerala. It is said that she is a beautiful demon who lured men with their beauty. Those women who died unnaturally, are believed to become Yakshi.
Yakshi have a strong fragrance of the flower Jasmine or Pala ( Indian Devil Tree). So, whenever you feel fragrance of this flower around you….Start running faster…ooo wait for a second..have you forgotten you are travelling by car.
The people in Kerala firmly believe there is the existence of Yakshi in the forests of Kerala. People reported that they have been attacked by Yakshi and luckily they flew unharmed. Yakshi mostly attacks in the night time. She preys on people who lost their path. Mostly traveller found her along the roads. Because of they lost their path, they have no choice to ask her for a favor. And that’s the perfect catch for her!!
Because of her beauty, she lured people easily and control their mind. She plays their mind for her pleasures. After that, she asks for lime and betel leaf to chew. That’s the turning point!! She completely takes over the mind of the victim.
After that..she used her victim for her carnal pleasures and at last the beautiful damsel turns into a dangerous demon and eat its victim, leaving behind only nails and hair near a palm tree.
Now you will ask..why not people go to Tantrik for an exorcism. But ALAS!! Though she is a demonic spirit she can’t be controlled whatever you do. But, there is one way to kill or keep her away from you. IRON!! A single iron rod can keep you safe from her.
Above I have mentioned some people flew away unharmed..the only way they escape unharmed.. is that they offered limes through iron pen.
So..keep in mind whenever you are planning to visit Kerala..always keep iron rod or at least iron pen with you. Whether you believe these stories or not..always prepare for the worst! right!! So, Stay safe guys!!!
