Abstract

Have you ever witnessed that, say for instance, you are migrating to Northern areas of Pakistan for the first time or you are playing basketball on a court and being cheered up by audience shouting only your name, and all of a sudden it feels like as if you have been in that very moment before or maybe you are having pizza with a group of friends, teasing a friend, and you have the feeling that you've already experienced this very thing -- same friends, same dinner, and same topic 60% of the populations, those who have experienced it for the first time assume it as Reincarnation. The phenomenon is comparatively complicated, and termed as Déjà vu. The word déjà vu is French and means, actual, "seen before". Those who have witnessed the feeling defined it as an astounding sense of familiarity with something that shouldn't be usual at all.
