Woman, 24, reunited with family after 17 years

Patna: In what could pass for a perfect Bollywood script, a girl from Bihar was reunited with her parents 17 years after she got lost during a train journey from Patna to Guwahati.

Twenty-four-year-old Gudia, the only daughter of Chhote Lal Yadav from Phulwari Sharif locality in Patna, was separated from her family at the Barauni railway station in 1997 while on her way to Guwahati. She was only seven years old at the time.

Family sources said the girl was travelling with her maternal uncle Ajit Kumar who worked in the Indian railways.

At Barauni station, Kumar got down to buy some food but the train left without him. He had run as fast as he could to catch the train but it pulled out of the station with little Gudia on board. Subsequently, a case of missing persons was registered with the Barauni railway police station.

Eventually, the girl reached Guwahati where the Government Railway Police personnel sent her to a local orphanage, considering her as an orphan. She stayed at the orphanage for 17 years waiting for her parents to come.

Due to the emotional trauma caused by the incident, the girl remembered only two things when she reached there — her father’s home location and the fact that one of her uncle worked in a local biscuit factory.

Based on this information, officials searched for her parents but in vain.

All that changed three days ago when she was able to recall a few more details and told the orphanage officials that she was a resident of Phulwari Sharif locality in Patna where trains pass by her home and potters make earthen pots.

She also told them that her uncle Satyendra Prasad works in biscuit factory there. Acting on the information, the orphanage officials got the numbers of the biscuit factory and contacted her uncle who confirmed that the girl had gone missing two decades back.

Her parents were very emotional when they met their daughter at the orphanage on Monday.

“Mamma-Pappa, you had forgotten me but I had not. I always missed you a lot. Please take me home soon. I can’t wait here even for a second,” her parents quoted Gudia as having told them when they met her.

“Papa, please get me home soon…I don’t want to lose you again,” she told her father.

She was ecstatic to meet her family members and says is looking forward to celebrating Raksha Bandhan with them.

Raksha Bandhan is a regional holiday to celebrate the sacred relationship between brothers and sisters, with rakhis tied by the sisters to mark the occassion. This year it will be celebrated on August 10.

Gudiya is the only sister of her five brothers and said she was excited to be finally with her family “after all these years”.

“We had lost all hope but thanks to God we have got our daughter back. We don’t know how to thank God (for this),” her mother Panjaria Devi said.

Bihar to get 5k MW by 2015

barh-power-projectPatna: Bihar is likely to get 5000MW power by 2015 end. Currently, the demand has gone up to 2300MW in the state. The state government has reiterated its commitment to make the state self-sufficient in power within the next two years.

By March 2014, the state would start getting an additional 330MW power from one unit (stage-II) of NTPC’s Barh thermal power station.

According to official sources, to improve power scenario in the state, electricity poles, wires and transformers are in the process of being replaced with new ones in 71 towns.

Sources said super grids would be installed at Lakhisarai, Gaya, Banka and Darbhanga which would help the state in getting power from any grid in the country. “We are moving from zero to self-sufficiency in spite of the fact that the state is facing odds on availability of coal from the Centre,” said an official.

The state government has set a power availability target of 5,300MW by 2015. This includes the current central allocation of 1,800MW. “The state government hopes that the NTPC’s Barh unit will be ready by 2015, from where the state has been allocated 1,200MW. Apart from this, the state’s own power generation units at Muzaffarpur and Barauni would also be ready by then. We expect 800MW from these units,” an official said.

“The state government has also signed long-term power purchase agreements with various private players, which would give us another 1,000MW. We are also buying 200MW from Adani Power. We are getting 100MW from DVC. Then, there are several other projects which will help along the way. We are confident that we will be self-sufficient in power by 2015,” said a senior official of the Bihar State Power Holding Company Limited (BSPHCL).”

He also claimed that Bihar will be a power surplus state by the year 2020. “Our promises are for 2015, but we are aiming beyond that. We want to have power generation of 16,000-17,000MW by 2020,” said an official. “The Nabinagar project, a joint venture between Bihar government and NTPC, is on track,” he said.

The Union government has also given its nod for setting up an Ultra Mega Power Project (UMPP) at Kakwara in Banka district, from which Bihar will get its share of 2,000MW in another five years.

The state government has already signed an MoU with PowerGrid to set up a joint venture for revamping, strengthening and augmenting the transmission network.
