What time do you call this?
I have just heard this story about a young boy in India who fell asleep on a train and woke up in Calcutta, unable to read, write or find his way back home.
After a series of Dickensian-type misfortunes, he was adopted by a family and taken to Tasmania.
25 years later, he used Google Earth to estimate where he might have lived before the fateful train-ride, and now he has been reunited with his long-lost mother, when he identified his home village by a picture of a dimly remembered water-fall.
