While most of us look to see if our car is in the driveway of our home on GoogleMaps... this story is a miracle of technology and the human mind.
This is the story of Saroo:
At the age of 5 he fell asleep on a train waiting for his brother to return. He thought his brother would wake him up but didn't know his brother had been killed by another train. He slept all night and woke up on an empty train... having no idea where he was or how far he had travelled. After some experiences no 5 year old should ever endure, he was adopted by a couple in Australia. They worked with him to keep his memories of India alive. And one day he let those memories take him on a trip home.
By using Google Maps he looked for things that looked familiar to him. A needle in a hay stack to be sure... he found his way home. He got on a plane, followed his memories and walked up to his childhood door...
