The saviour

BBC reports the tale of "Bhule Bhatke Tiwari" >> Lost and Found "Tiwari", a spartan man with simple needs does the very important part of uniting lost family members with their family during the crowded hindu festival of Kumbh Mela and Ardh Kumbh Mela that happens in Allahabad, near the holy Ganges river.

He has so far helped more than 633,000 lost people find their families again. "I first came here in 1945 with my friends to have a look around. There was no facility then, and few visitors. Since then I have covered 11 Kumbh Melas and 51 annual fairs," Mr Tiwari says.

Amazing story of an important work
