    "A Long Way Home" is a memoir written in 2013 by Saroo Brierley. An international best seller, it was made into a film in 2016 called "Lion" ("Saroo" means lion in Hindi). It has been nominated for many awards, including Best Picture.

    The book and film recall Saroo's amazing story.... a five-year-old boy in rural India who becomes lost and.... amazingly.... ends up in Calcutta, some 1500 miles from home. A little, lost boy - he lives in the streets (along with thousands of other homeless children) and in spite of life-threatening realities everywhere, survives for several months. A good turn or two results in him being adopted by people in Australia. Some 20 years later, entirely by using tools on the Internet - he finds his home (in spite of not knowing his own last name, his mother's name - and incorrectly "knowing" the name of his village). An amazing but true story.

    I highly recommend the book and the film

    Thanks Josiah, that does sound like a winner :) I'll let you know what I think once I'm able to see it!

    Matthew 5
    16 Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

    Matthew 7
    12 However you want people to treat you, so treat them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

    1 Corinthians 13
    1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

    1 Peter 3
    15 Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.

      Yes I've seen this film and it was amazing! A very touching movie and it made me cry. The little boy in the film really did a great job in portraying as the young Saroo. I really like Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel and they also did an amazing job in this film. I haven't read the book yet but I would definitely recommend this film for those who haven't seen it yet :)
