Happened at lonavala
This happened about a month or two ago near Lonavala, and even though it
> sounds like something out of the X Files or from Alfred Hitchcock
> Presently… it’s real !
> This guy drives from Mumbai to Pune and decides not to take the new
> expressway as he wants to see the scenery. The inevitable happens and
> when he reaches the ghats his car breaks down – he’s stranded miles
> nowhere. Having no choice he starts walking on the side of the road,
> hoping to get a lift to the nearest human habitation.
> It’s dark and raining and pretty soon he’s wet and shivering. The
> rolls on and no car goes by, the monsoon rains are so strong he can
> hardly see a few feet ahead of him. Suddenly he sees a car coming
> towards him. It slows and then stops next to him – without thinking
> guy opens the car’s door and jumps in. Seated in the back, he leans
> forward to thank the person who had saved him when he realizes there
> nobody behind the wheel!!!
> Even though there’s no one in the front seat and no sound of any
> the car starts moving slowly. The guy looks at the road ahead and sees
> curve coming (remember, this is in the hills and there is a steep,
> steep drop beyond the curve).
> Scared almost to death he starts to pray, begging the Lord for his
> He hasn’t come out of shock, when just before he hits the curve, a
> appears through the window and moves the wheel! The car makes the

> paralyzed in terror, watches how the hand appears every time they are
> before acurve and moves the steering wheel just enough to get the car
> around each bend.
> Finally, the guy sees lights ahead. Gathering his courage he wrenches
> open the door of the silent, slowly moving car, scrambles out and
> as hard as he can towards the lights.
> It’s a small town. Wet and in shock goes to a roadside dhabba, which
> open, and asks for a drink. They find some hooch and give him a shot.
> And he starts telling whoever is in the dhabba about the horrible
> experience he’s just been through. A silence envelops everybody when
> they realize the guy isn’t drunk, and is really frightened – he’s
> crying and shaking. So they give him more hooch and talk about what
> should do, whether to call the police or find a priest, or what.
> But just then two guys(santa & banta) walk into the dhabba.
> One says to the other
> “Look, Banta
> – that’s the guy who got in our car when we were pushing it.”
