It was Onam in Kerala, but this year, it was going to be different. Apart from Mahabali, Keralites also welcomed a little ghost with a drinking problem, named Kuttichathan.
My friend Ann was driving through the cemetery in the blazing heat one summer afternoon and her heart was heavy with grief. Her father had died four months before and nothing could shake her of the sense of loss — until suddenly, there was an interruption.

She had to do something. Ann drove home, got water and returned to the cemetery where she found the parched puppy. It instead looked My unforgettable story Ann with suspicion from across the cemetery.
Sure enough, the little dog was still there, lying next to a gravestone. Though the dog skirted away at the sight of his benefactors when Ann and Jimmy returned the next day, the food was gone and the puppy was eyeing them from a distance.
Over the next few days, the puppy cautiously closed the gap until finally, it came up to Ann and Jimmy and rolled over for a tummy rub. Ann and Jimmy gasped. And yet, the next morning, Jimmy came back to drop off more food. After Jimmy patted the dog on the head and began to drive away, something in the rear view mirror caught his eye.

In the following years, Spooky would rarely draw near to anyone other than Ann and Jimmy, but even they had to be careful about making sudden moves or Spooky would jump with fright.
No wonder — the veterinarian who examined Spooky after her rescue said that she had clearly been abused. Spooky, like so many broken people, had learned not to trust and she never forgot that lesson.
