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 Presents... 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
from 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 night 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 the 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 is nobody behind the wheel!!! Even though
there's no one in the front seat and no sound of any
engine, the car starts moving slowly. The guy looks at
the road ahead and sees a 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 life.
He hasn't come out of shock, when just before he hits
the curve, a hand appears through the window and moves
the wheel! The car makes the curve safely and
continues on the road to the next bend. The guy, now
paralyzed in terror, watches how the hand appears
every time they are before a curve 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 runs as hard as
he can towards the lights. It's a small town. Wet and
in shock goes to a roadside dhabba, which is 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 they should do, whether to call the police or
find a priest, or what. But just then two guys (Santa
& Banta) walk into the dhabba. And one says to the
other "Look, Banta - that's the jerk that got in the
car when we were pushing it."

Are you there?

There was one similar one from Ahmedabad - that time it was from Drive-in Theater to Vijay Char-Rasta.
