The 58-year old man had left home 44 years ago, settling down in Nagaland, 3,000 km away from a life of poverty in Vyasarpadi. On Friday, it was an emotional reunion for him with those who remained in his family. “We were eight siblings, but only five remain.

My parents died a few years ago too.

I cannot forgive myself for not being here, especially for my mother,” said Gunasekaran, barely able to hold back tears. He used to live with his rather large family in a one room shanty in Shastri Nagar, Vyasarpadi.

His father was a watchman, and mother, a homemaker who would go to Kasimedu to sell fish.
