Youth�s efforts help unite MP man with family

By Haramohan Barman

BARPETA, Feb 15 � Neither Miththanlal Suryabanshi nor his family ever thought that they will be reunited some time. A long period of eleven years had elapsed since Miththanlal left home for visiting a relative in a neighbouring village. But since then the resident of village Umria Oji in Chindwara district of Madhya Pradesh went missing leaving least hope for the family to trace him.

But the humanity of a youth of Chenga in Barpeta district enabled the distressed family to fulfil their hopes. Mridul Das, son of Satyendra Nath Das, a resident of Chenga in Barpeta district found a man in a roadside rest house in a feeble condition and unattended. Mridul took the person to his home and treated him. The man was apparently suffering from some illness. Mridul and his family members treated Suryabanshi and attended to him to bring his health to a normal state.

As he became normal after a few days of relentless dedicated service, Mridul tried to contact the family of Suryabanshi as he had described. Though he failed to establish direct contact with the family in Chindwara, he could connect to the Superintendent of Police of that district through internet. After one month of effort, contact with the family located at Umria Oji in Chindwara in Madhya Pradesh became a reality through the Superintendent of Police.

The efforts of Mridul bore fruit when two of the family members of Miththanlal Suryabanshi arrived at Chenga on February 13. Anil Suryabanshi, nephew of Miththanlal accompanied by Manoj Sallam, a relative identified his missing uncle and became speechless with joy. They found no words to express their gratitude towards the family of Mridul. They narrated their plight of searching him and admitted that they had supposed him to be dead.

The residents of Chenga have lauded the humanitarian attitude of Mridul and hoped that it will definitely sprout seeds of doing a noble need in the heart of generations to come.
