Amazing Story

In 1987, five year old Sanroo Brierly and his brother boarded a train that was supposed to take them home after a long day of begging on the streets of India. But the boys fell asleep, the train rolled on, and hours later they were deposited clear across the country.

Twenty-five years later, Brierly has finally found his way home. And he did it with Google Earth.
A remarkable story (even if the bit about a planned movie has me a little cynical).
