During the Second World War my grandfather was stationed in India and visited a remote location in Uttar Pradesh where there was a a huge hue and cry about a strange event. It turned out that a lady in her 80's in a typical poor farming village who had never had any contact with English people had suddenly started to converse in fluent English and had started smoking cigarettes for the first time in her life.
My grandfather and his colleague visited the lady - there were no levitations or spewing up green vomit. The lady was dignified but seemed to breath more deeply than normal people. On being asked in English: "Who are you?" she did not answer with a name but replied that she had been educated in a public school in England and maintained a conversation in perfect English for about 20 minutes. She only stopped the conversation to ask for a cigarette.
The details are a bit hazy to me but I just want to ask the experts here if that is demonic possession or is there a more rational explanation for this phenomenon?
