We all known that ‘Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.’ Though whatever happens around us has a scientific reason. But does everything that happens have an Answer? India has been a place of mystery, myth and magic since old times. But here is a collection of some weird things happening in India which really don’t have any answer. It’s upon you that what you want to believe it as a mystery, a myth or magic.!
1) The Mind-Boggling Bird Suicide Phenomenon of Jatinga Valley – Assam
Jatinga is a small village located in Assam, a state in northeastern India. The village is lush green and scenic, surrounded by serene mountains. But that’s not what it’s famous for. In fact, Jatinga is well-known for an entirely different reason – its Bird Mystery.
The Bird Mystery is a unique phenomenon that occurs at Jatinga between September and November each year. During these late monsoon months, several migratory and local birds commit mass suicide at the village. Just after sunset, between 7 and 10 pm, hundreds of birds descend from the sky, plummeting to their deaths by crashing into buildings and trees. Since birds aren’t known to be suicidal, the phenomenon has baffled villagers, visitors and scientists alike. For many years, locals believed that evil spirits living in the skies were responsible for bringing downÂ the birds.
2) Red Rain in Kottayam – Kerala
The first well-documented reports of red rain came from the southern state of India, Kerala in the year 2001 though some reference of such incident have been recovered from the year 1818. After 2001, there had been reports of red rain in Kerala in 2011 and 2012. The unusual phenomenon also occurred in Sri Lanka in 2012 as well.
There are many theories about this rain. The famous ones are:
- First it was thought that the colour came from the burst of a meteor that mingled in with rain clouds.
- A waterspout traveling over the sea might have brought the red rain, red representing the blood of fishes or bird.
- Chemicals released by the factories which make acid rain.
- Government of India believed that the winds carrying pollen grains or airborne spores from the local algae might be responsible, that was their final verdict.
- A research at Gandhi University in India gained international press coverage when the scientists there said that they have believe that the red rain contains cells which are extraterrestrial as they have the potential to grow at the temperature of 300Â°C yet they have no DNA nor RNA.
According to historical record, red rain has been reported in the United Kingdom but Britishers mostly believe in dust particles or water spout for the unusual event. What causes the Kerala’s blood rain is still unknown as everyone in India has their own version.
3) Twin Town – Kerala
There is an extraordinary factor about this village in Malappuram, Kerala. It has the strikingly large number of twin births that it witnesses. It is now called as Kodinhi, or the Village of Twins, and has become one of the mysterious places in India!
Once you set foot into this village, you’ll start seeing doubles of almost everyone! Kodinhi is currently home to overÂ 200 pair of twins and two sets of triplets. And that’s not all! Kodinhi’s women who are married outside the village also end up having twins or triplets.
Doctors believe that the reason for this strange phenomenon lies in the chemicals of the water in the area.
4) Ladakh Magnetic Hill
Can your car get a life of its own due to some unknown natural phenomena? It seems to be the case at the Magnetic Hill located 30 kilometers outside Leh on the way to Alchi and Kargil.
A sign at this spot invites you to stop your car over a white square marked on the road, switch it off and leave it in neutral. Follow the instructions and your car actually starts moving on its own at speeds of 10-20 km per hour. Ok, so this was downhill and it was just following the rules of gravity. Turn your car in the opposite direction and repeat the steps. It will start moving uphill.
I had heard of this phenomenon but had to see it to believe it. And it turned out to be exactly as described here. And that too in a heavy car like the Scorpio overloaded with baggage and passengers.
It may not be as notorious as the Bermuda Triangle, but pilots play it safe by not flying any aircraft over Magnetic Hill according to an Army official.
