""Where are you from?"
I could easily answer ‘Pakistan’
And end the conversation.
But I want to tell you about
How I was born in a small town in Gujrat
Where my fathers’ parents are buried
Along with my mothers school teacher dream.
I want to tell you about Lahore,
Where I spent the next 4 years getting used to traffic noise.
I want to tell you about how I gave my heart away to Brooklyn, NY
Where I only say my father if I was awake at 2am.
I want to tell you about Coventry
That had the familiar scent of Gujrat,
The clear star filled sky that made my heart ache to be there.
I want to tell you but I hold back.
You ask again, “where are you from?”
I sigh.
“Pakistan”I say."

Something strange is happening in Singapore today. 

On a busy street in Singapore, residents discovered a small doll leaning against a tree. The doll looked somewhat antique and had its eyes covered with a cloth. The cloth had some arabic text written on it. The doll’s backstory and the subsequent research hinted at the fact that the doll was possibly possessed.

In the words of the person who posted the pictures on Reddit, “The doll was found beside a busy street in Singapore. The Arabic word on the cloth is translated as ‘Bismillah’.

The ‘Bismillah’ maybe a blessing to keep the demon or jinn possessing it inside the doll at all times.

Stories from twitter revealed that the doll is possessed and has been moving around on its own when the original owner isn’t home. The owner binded the eyes and left it far away from home so it wouldn’t follow her back.

"Some say the doll can be heard talking when it’s left alone in a room and is found with its head turned in a different direction. It is said that it spoke in a Malay language and sound like an adult female.”

The original owner found that the only way to get rid of it and make sure it won’t come back is to cover its eyesight. The curse is rumored to have passed on to someone else who found it and untied the cloth unknowingly.
