Minakshi Chaudhry, a former journalist and writer of multiple books based in Shimla provides yet another book of Ghost stories of Shimla Hills. A total of 16 short stories are based on the other side, deals with supernatural and spirits which refuse to die down. The author's earlier book, 'Ghost Stories of the Shimla Hills', published in 2005 also by Rupa and Co, became a bestseller and is in constant reprint.

In these 16 stories, the readers will encounter bhoots (ghosts) and churails (witches)

I don't know how I feel about this book.
Most of stories aren't even real, they're more close to common legends. It was great in the beginning but then it just got worse and worse, till there was no horror left in the Ghost Stories and they became normal stories.

Having lived in Shimla for some time, these ghost stories are almost folklore in the hills and the locations are pretty real. A good read for a good night of fright.

Ghost stories always fascinated me. The terrific looks of ghost and their past life are something which makes me read ghost stories. Every culture has its own depiction of ghost and ghostly thing. You will find me reading the ghost story in free time. Shimla is one of my dream destination as it has a dreamy atmosphere. In past Shimla has been the favourite place of Britisher's as they find the environment of Shimla same as to England. As they left our country but with this they hav

The book is good, gives a number of british ghosts stories at Shimla. For all the interested explorers it provides enough placed in Shimla to explore in this way apart from just getting excited by its natural beauty and british setup. It arouse the urge of exploring shimla more. Though the stories are more on the locally famous stories instead of personal experiences so it is more of increasing excitement instead of giving adrenaline rush which you got from stories of Sacred Evils by Ipsita Roy ...more

A fantastic book, one that gives the reader some serious chills, I enjoyed it over a week-end away in Lonavla, amidst the pouring August rains in the year 2012.
The stories are fabulous and dark. Each a journey of their own.
