Saroo Brierley was born in 1981 in Madhya Pradesh, India. He was adopted by an Australian family at 5 years old after being separated from his biological mother. At the age of 30 he was reunited with his biological mother after many years of searching. His account of this experience was published in 2013 in the book, A Long Way Home. It was later made into the film 'Lion' in 2016 starring Dev Patel. His book unfolds the story of Saroo and his older brother Guddu becoming separated at a train station in India as they are searching for food.
