They call themselves Spirit Seekers

It’s the story of a group of students who call themselves the Spirit Seekers Army (SSA), but they are now better known as Ghostbusters in the city.



Aishwary Narolia’s childhood memories date back to his place of birth, the White City of Ahmedabad. But, it’s not the ‘minars’, which dot the nooks and corners of the city, that he thinks of, but the many stories on ghosts and spirits that young  Aishwary would listen while he was growing up. His strong fascination with spirits and paranormal activities grew even stronger when he came to Bangalore few years ago and then he formed – Spirit Seekers Army (SSA). Today, SSA works under Indian Paranormal Society, a place for people who are interested to know, study and research on Paranormal Phenomena in India. It was formed by the leading instructor Gaurav Tiwari. 

An engineering student of one of the leading colleges in Bangalore, Aishwary, along with his six friends, now works as the Ghostbusters in the city. So, what’s their work like? “We go to places that complain of paranormal activities. There are many families, places, and areas in the city that have got the presence of external objects. They cannot be seen, but their energy can be felt,” says Aishwary. 

How? He explains, “We use infrared thermometer, which we bought from a chemical factory in the city. This device helps us to detect the presence of some external energy. Spirits cannot be seen, but their energy can be felt.” He adds: “We also make the use of Electronic Voice Phenomena (evp) device, which helps us to record voices that cannot be heard by a human hear. Their frequencies are much lesser, which is why we have to debunk these sounds later with the help of some audio software’s. Any recording device may function as your EVP recorder.” 

EVP’s have been considered as one of the major signs for the presence of external energy by many leading organizations working in paranormal activities. For a layman, evp is what paranormal investigators believe to be a voice of a spirit. This voice or sound is not generally heard at the time of recording, but the same can be evaluated using software’s later from the recorder. There are, however, other signs that SSA believe to be some of the signs for the existence of spirits: unexplained noises, unexplained shadows, feelings of being watched, apparitions, lights and orbs, feelings of being watched and so forth. 

While many of these signs have been felt by the members of SSA during their recce at work, Dinesh Choudhary, one of the members, speaks about some unexplained noises. “We have had few families who have called us complaining about hearing of some unexplained noises. Shadows and orbs are also common,” says Dinesh.  Ghosts and spirits have been a hot slice of discussion for decades’ now. Many refute to believe on the phenomenon, but there are some who crave answers to such unexplained phenomenon.

Shuta Lekha (name changed) has been living in a house that she claims to be haunted. The family has called SSA members for a recce tonight. “Ever since I moved to first floor, I have experience many bad things. It has become a nightmare now. We see shadow, and hear some sounds past midnight. These sounds come from no where.” She adds: “Sometimes, I have gotten up in the morning with a swollen leg and some black marks in the body, as if somebody has beaten me black and blue. I don’t like to believe in spirits and ghosts, but it’s not just me who has had such encounters in this house”. “We have called SSA today, for we really want to know what the problem with this place is.”  

While for SSA, some of the basic instruments like Infrared thermometer, ghost reader (a software installed in phone), emf (electro magnetic filed) meter and evp recorder has been of use so far, the group hopes to upgrade their gadget as days go by. “Once we get some better funding, we want to buy few other gadgets. Our next is K2 Meter. They are expensive, and have to be purchased from abroad,” concludes Aishwary.  

All the seven members are students pursuing their engineering from SBMJC College. While none of them has actually thought of pursuing a career in paranormal activities, but they remain to be thrilled on how there are things that continue to remain unexplained so far. Just like American author Dean Koontz says, “Houses are not haunted. We are haunted, and regardless of the architecture with which we surround ourselves, our ghosts stay with us until we ourselves are ghosts.” 

The seven members of the Spirit Seekers Army: 
Field Investigators: Aishwary Narolia, Arjun Thimmaya, Dinesh Choudhary, Piyush Sharma 
Technical Team: Swapnil Jain, Akash Goila, Tushar Mandhyani.

Do you investigate all aspects deemed paranormal..? How about cryptozoology...? I think your society has more to do with Spirits/Ghost Hunting than the complete spectrum of events deemed paranormal. I have an avid interest in anything paranormal or supernatural.. Things that science has no explanation/psuedoscience... 
 
The phenonmenon in Jhatinga.. The Yeti / Banmanush .. The cults of shiva.. occult. feral children.. are all this in your society's interest..?

As an engineering student, also from bangalore, its quite a shame that a group of educated young adults are susceptible to such spectacularly delusional thinking and a flawed approach to analysis. One would've thought a good dose of education and common sense could prevent people from resorting to the supernatural to give meaning or complete their lives.
 
But with your example, it seems science education and education in general at schools needs a serious look, esp. primary classes, where such silly ideas take root, and even seem fancied in a way.
 
If rationalist groups took you seriously, it would be easy to send people to 'haunted' locations at night (why?) to check out pigments of your imagination. But that would be a real waste of time and energy. Why then, did I spend 2 minutes to write this? Because it hurts that engineering graduates, my colleagues, can be so intelligent when solving networks, but don't have a clue as to how the scientific method works.

I do belief and appreciate your work.The day will come soon when people will belief on these aspects. Science has to go a long way to understand and comment on these.

Hi,
I have had a few paranormal experiences and have therefore become curious about this world. Not that I am a dare devil, I have my own fears as well, but that does not cut down my curiousity to know. I wish I could work with you, but I am located in a different city and therefore cannot do so.
You guys are doing a great job! I had the notion that these groups exist only in the west, good to know that we are not far behind them. I am an avid watcher of "The Haunting" in Discovery Channel.
By the way I used to work with Tech Mahindra till sometime back, now I am with a different Organisation.
