When Saroo Brierley used Google Earth to find his long-lost home town half a world away, he made global headlines. Saroo had transform lost on a train in India at the age of five. Not knowing the name of his circle of relatives or where he was once from, he survived for weeks at the streets of Kolkata before being taken into an orphanage and adopted by a couple in Australia. In spite of being happy in his new circle of relatives, Saroo all the time wondered about his origins. When he was once a young man the advent of Google Earth led him to pore over satellite images of India for landmarks he recognized. And someday, after years of searching, he miraculously found what he was once searching for and set off on a journey to find his mother.
