My take on ghosts is a bit different from the tv versions I've seen.
I reckon ghosts (or spirits,whats the difference anyway), seem to manipulate weak minded people , sometimes to the point where that person is acting totally out of character, often not remembering what happened to them,(because they were usually drunk). People put it down to the booze, but if you watch closely you can see the difference in people who are just alcohol affected and people who are alcohol and "ghost" affected. Actually it happens to so-called straight people all the time, its just easier to blame the effects of the booze.
In Hindu mythology I believe that they believe that a departed 'soul' can hang around for upto 49 days after their mortal death, sometimes causing mischief, sometimes causing inadverdant fear.
I have seen these super wholistic beings a few times, but it's not like I saw them with my eyes,(perhaps my inner eye? ). They were usually accosiated with special places or people.
