Uneducated, illiterate, and unable to recall the name of his hometown after getting lost on a train at the age of five, Saroo managed to survive on the streets until a Tasmanian couple adopted him. But despite growing up in a loving upper-middle class Aussie family, Saroo still clung to the last memories of his hometown and family in India. Amazingly, twenty-five years later, with some dogged determination and a heap of luck -- and the advent of Google Earth -- he found his family in India.
