From The Daily Telegraph (UK) comes this tale of supernatural mistaken identity:
An Indian man has been banished by his family who are convinced he is a ghost. Raju Raghuvanshi, believed by friends and family to have died in prison, came home this month after a short jail sentence to be greeted by shouts of "Help! Ghost!" He has now enlisted the help of police to try to convince them that he is alive.Bummer. But I think the best line in the article is this:
The best proof he had - that his feet were still properly attached, not turned backward as ghosts' feet are thought to be - was dismissed.Now that's cold. What's the use of having rules for ghosts if you won't apply them when they prove someone isn't a ghost!?
