What is White Matter

White matter is the brain tissue through which messages pass between different areas of grey matter within the nervous system. Using a computer network as an analogy, the grey matter can be thought of as the actual computers themselves, whereas the white matter represents the network cables connecting the computers together.

Trespassers not allowed!


“What the hell, so much dust is around…why rooms are so messy? Plants are dying? Where is newspaper?” – Brian woken up from a deep sleep and he shouted on Jane, the only maid at house.

“Yes, Sir. I am also surprised to see dust around. I will clean it up now!” – Jane’s face turned pale and black shadows grown stronger below her eyes.

“Who is there, behind that cupboard? Oh, is it you, John? What the hell, you are doing here?” – Brian asked.

Jane moved backward with stunned expression, even though she knew about Brian’s abnormal behavior.

“Dad, how long you’ve been sleeping, when your enemies are still alive? Strangers are all around now and messing with our home.” – John murmured.

“John, What!!!Strangers are around and messing with our home.” – Brian repeated in anger.

“Dad, you still believe him? Whom you’re talking to? How many times I’d told you about John and how he is making your life miserable.” – Ron said, while approaching from behind.

Emma, Brian’s wife stood behind, with a straight face.

I do not trust you, Ron, but him. Go away!” – Brian shouted.

Jane cleaned up the house and surroundings, as every other day, silently.

The board on the gate read:-
“Trespassers not allowed!”
“Maggs Bros Ltd., 50 Berkeley Square, Central London”

Dr. Tim, his wife Kiara and 12 year old daughter Tabby were amazed to see, such a beautiful dream house. The archway made of trees and colorful flowers welcomed them into arena of antique sculptures of Greek gods, surrounding a pond. During recession, this antique property at prime location was a hot deal from Bank and Tim accepted it blindly as first buyer.

While walking around home, Tim heard a loud scream of Tabby, coming from bedroom above. Tim & Kiara ran upstairs to see her. Tim was worried to see her hand drenched in blood.

“Dad, I’d just opened the door and it closed suddenly. Heavy winds, probably. I tried to hold the door after opening it but it closed again clutching my hand, as if someone slammed it. Ahh!” Tabby cried aloud. Tim grabbed first-aid kit and applied bandage.

“I am going for a warm bath now.” – Tim set the temperature to lukewarm at geyser knob outside of bathroom.

Taking his bath kit, he closed the door. As usual before starting bath he placed his hand, below running shower and closed it. It was lukewarm, good. After 2 minutes, he was below shower and turned the shower knob.

“Holy S***!”– Tim grunted with his right side blistered with hot water. After taking cold shower for a while, he came out of bathroom. 


Shocking!!! The geyser knob was pointing at hot.

“You are right, John! I could hear footsteps of strangers around the house. What the hell I am not able to see anyone. This house is mine and trespassers are not allowed.”

“Hey, someone had opened my bedroom. Let me stop this nonsense.Huh!” – Brian ran towards the door and slammed it hard. He heard a loud scream, followed by footsteps on staircase, crying and a scrambled conversation.

“Oh, so you are going to my bathroom now. Let me get your hell out!” – Brian mumbled after watching the geyser knob turning to lukewarm and closing of the door afterwards.

“Holy S***!”  Brian smirked after hearing it from inside bathroom.

As Tim returned after a long European vacation with family, he didn’t read the newspaper, few days back.

PS - As a known fact, Maggs Bros Ltd. at 50 Berkeley Square is a famous haunted house of London and late B.D.Maggs was former president of ABA. Rest of all is fiction, an impact of reading and watching too much psychological thrillers.
