Everybody loves a healthy dose of horror. Even us, a mostly weak-hearted bunch here at Brunch. Halloween is around the corner (October 31, keep your pumpkins ready!), so we decided to open our bag of special tricks to treat you.
"Nobody cares about Halloween in India," said the dissenters. "Everybody loves horror!" we argued. "Let’s make her spend a night at a cemetery," someone suggested. We figured haunted city Bhangarh was much scarier. "How about a story on how the Brunch office is haunted?"
It wasn’t. We even used this ouija board to communicate with spirits. For newsfolk, spirits are only things that get you drunk. "Should we ask Ruskin Bond to write a ghost story for us?" But nobody’s scared of rustling winds in the hills anymore. The ideas kept pouring in.
It helped that the lady boss had just t Supernatural . Then a fellow Bruncher found a paranormal tour. A little more of this and a little more of that, wherever we went, we found ghost (stories). We even wrote one of our own. So, this Sunday, we’re the official ghostseekers. We put all of this together and in this issue lie our booty, blood, jokes and all.
