The case of Sukla is one of hundreds in the files of Professor Ian Stevenson of the University of Virginia. For than a quarter of the century Stevenson have the alleged former incarnation belonged, or was known to, family of the claimant, who may have simply remembered information stored subconsciously. been investigating cases in which children recall the homes, work, and families of individual unknown on to them in this life, and sometimes long dead. Stevenson suggests that these may be genuine instances of reincarnation.

The Mouths of Babes: Children Who Lived Before Their Time

In 1995, when she was about 18 months old, Sukla Gupta of the village of Kampa in West Bengal began to cradle her pillow and call it Minu. When asked who Minu was, Sukla would reply “My daughter.”

During the next three years the small child often spoke to her family about her husband and her daughter and the life that they had led together. She told them that she was a reincarnation of a woman named Mana, and that husband, brothers-in-law Khetu and Karuna, and Minu were still living at Rathala and Bhatpara, 11 miles away.

Sukla asked to be taken to Rathala, but her family had never heard of this district. Sukla said that she could show them the way herself. Then her father discovered that Rathala did exist and that someone named Khetu did live there. Investigation revealed that Khetu had had a sister-in-law named Mana; she had died some years before, leaving a small child, Minu. His curiosity aroused, Sukla’s father arranged for the two families to meet.

When Sukla and her parents arrived in Rathala in the summer of 1959, Sukla led the way to the house of her alleged father-in-law, where she identified all of the people she had mentioned over the years. It was especially striking that she addressed her brother-in-law as Karuna; everyone else called him Kutu. Event close neighbor did not know his true name.

Sukla recognized many of the objects in the house in the picked out Mana’s saris from a trunkful of clothes tat ad belonged to a number the order people. She showed extraordinary affection for her husband and for Minu.

    It is so funny that “authorities” are discussing this. Why not also discuss whether or not we can accurately remember what we had for breakfast yesterday?

    Some people can remember early chirldhood, others can’t. It is no different that that.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I like it. Thumbs Up, friend. I do believe in “avatar” or reincarnation.
    A friend gave me his book, “Reality of Reincarnation” and it details the reality of reincarnation, philosophically, scientifically and religiously.
