A cause for paranoia

about a fortnight ago it was raining heavily in the wee hours of the morning (when LK was still on his leave) and we were up late watching tv and surfing the net, then suddenly we heard something like a metallic klinking sound in our backyard (and this was above the noise of the heavy rain! so it must've been really loud...). so LK went to check it out by going into the kitchen and peering through the kitchen louvres... he saw a guy standing behind our house in the back lane staring up at one of the upstairs windows (it was either LK's or the neighbour's room) in the heavy rain! then when mum asked him to turn on the backyard light, the guy disappeared!

that really got me spooked for many nights! what kind of person would stand in the heavy rain without any protection and just stare??? thank the Lord LK was there to scare that fella away! somehow lately there's been many cases like this happening around here! it seems at 3a.m. on thursday, there were a couple of indian boys chasing each other with sticks at the back lane again (but i was having a feverish sleep at that time for i was at the climax of my sickness!). this time papa even heard it.

talking about crime just outside your doorstep, quite sometime ago there was this brawl between an indian guy and an indonesian guy and they tumbled into our yard over our fencing! the former was hitting the latter on the head with a metal stick till the guy was bleeding... this carried on for maybe about 5 minutes or more and we were all shouting from within the house for them to stop. after yelling warnings that we'd call the police, they stopped and ran off... i'd actually had the polices' number at a press of a button away...

a few years ago, we were in the master bed room when we heard a woman's hysterical scream... when we looked out of the window we saw a pot-bellied indian guy on a motorbike grabbing at an indian lady's gold necklace while trying to chop her with a parang! the lady was trying to fight back and she had dropped her plastic bags of groceries. i can't remember whether the guy made it away with the necklace or not but it all ended in a split second (although when you're actually witnessing it, it seems like a long time).

things like this i don't see everyday and for me, it sounds more like something out from a television show or movie rather than real life. but the fact is that it does happen everyday in every country all over the world. we can see the evidence for that statement daily in our newspapers or news programs - and that is only what's been reported, what about the cases which aren't reported?? i thank God that He has protected me and my family in all circumstances and i pray that He will continue to do so. but what has happened to this world? man are behavinglike animals, in fact i think it more appropriate to say that man are behaving even beneath animals! whenever i think back about each of the incidents above, i have this feeling deep within that there's something really evil present at each of the incidents. somehow i have this perception that the devil actually possesses a person when he is doing something bad/evil. maybe this is just the result of having a too active imagination but this is how i feel about the matter.
