According to traditional belief and fiction, a ghost is a manifestation of the spirit or soul of a deceased person. How did a person die? Is it unnatural or natural? These are the moot questions that need to be addressed. The degree of the fear factor associated with the dead person increases, corresponding to the nature of his death. If he commits suicide by hanging, it is quite obvious, people living in the same place won't be comfortable. This is also true of other forms of violent death faced by the deceased person. Though there are theories related to the belief in the ghosts of deceased animals or any other spirits, popular usage is confined to a dead person's spirit. The real evidence for ghosts is largely anecdotal, but the belief in ghosts and paranormal activities throughout history has been persistent across the globe. Movies or TV serials related to a spirit, particularly of a woman, facing unnatural death on account of her husband's or relatives' torture and taking revenge by way of killing them appear then and there in India with lots of spooky scenes accentuated by special effects. These weird visuals have made the people more susceptible to the fear of spirits, etc.

It is reported that in the past some people on a visit to the graveyard to take photos, all of a sudden, experienced strange things. The photographer and his friends became breathless and disoriented at the same time for unknown reasons. Some creepy shadows emerged in the photos, it is reported. Ever since the appearance of a vague, fuzzy figure on the photo and the consequent sudden illness, this place, where the Europeans, once the denizens of Calcutta, are taking eternal sleep, has been tagged as the haunted place. This place, that appears horrible because of absolute silence during the day, turns into a nightmarish and macabre place after sundown.
Listed below are a few British people who were once the residents of Calcutta, the city that gave them employment, name, and happiness. Unfortunately, their pretty old graves are objects of some scary mysteries, freakish stories and unearthly beliefs that chill the spine and blood. Such strange stories resurrect them from their eternal slumber in their respective graves. Here you feel isolated from the din and the cacophony in the middle of a huge city when you walk through the graveyard and get a feel of what Calcutta was in its heyday. You tend to relive the glorious past on a huge burial place which has now become a mound of damaged structures, trash and wild growth of plants and trees. Truly, it is a transient world; today's glory is tomorrow's forgotten story.
