Do you believe in reincarnation?  



By Vishudh Jain

There are so many things around you for which there are numerous explanations available. But, there are still thousands of questions which still remain unanswered. Reincarnation is one of the mysteries which puzzles scientists and religious heads alike. If you were to ask me about it, I think reincarnation is possible. Across the world, there have been many instances to believe so, and here are some examples:

A boy named Arias who belonged to the Druze group in Western Asia was born with a strange birthmark that covered half of his face. At 3, he became the centre of attention in his family because he started speaking and revealed how he was murdered in his past life with an axe. From his memory, he was able to recall the village where he died in his past life, and so he took his parents there.

He also remembered his past name and the name of his murderer. When they all reached the village and started investigating, they found the alleged killer. The boy then took his parents to where his dead body was buried and in that very spot, they found a man’s skeleton with a wound in the head that corresponded with the boy’s birthmark. They also recovered the axe with which he had been killed. Later, the killer was arrested by the police authorities.

Similar to this case, a 10-year-old boy named Ryan, once claimed that he is the reincarnation of the Hollywood actor, Marty Martyn who died in 1964. Ryan told his mother that he used to be somebody else. During this childhood, he started having nightmares. He would cry to his mother to take him “Home to Hollywood” and recounted stories of meeting American actress, dancer and producer – Rita Hayworth, dancing on the Broadway, travelling overseas, and working at an agency. When his mother showed him a book with movies, Ryan pointed to a man in the 1932 Mae West film Night After Night. Ryan talked a lot about Marty’s sister and said that one of his sisters went to New York to become a dancer. He was able to recall very intricate details about Marty Martyn’s life such as how he became a talent agent in Hollywood. He would describe how he set up the Marty Martyn Agency where he had notable clients such as the Canadian-American actor, Glenn Ford. Ryan also talked about Marty’s connections to Rita and later, her daughter confirmed she probably did know him.

And so, it is believed that when babies cry during the night it is because they recall the images of their past life. The same may or may not be true, but hearing such accounts, I feel that I can see signs of reincarnation. Though the same has not been proven by scientists yet, this theory could completely alter the way we look at the universe and its living organisms.
