Why is it important?

Worldwide, there have been numerous surveys made concerning the incidences of déjà vu, déjà rêvé and also precognitive dreams but not in India. The exploratory investigation presented in this paper represents the first such broad-based survey in Kerala and presents the results that were obtained. It is hoped that additional studies will now be carried out in other parts of the country.


My co-author and I are very pleased and honored that a prestigious APA journal saw it fit to publish our article. We hope it will be considered an important stepping stone for further studies of these intriguing phenomena.
