Stories of missing people found after years often appear in news, but a recent case where a missing son’s mysterious return after two decades in Uttar Pradesh’s Amethi district has shocked people.

In a report, filed by NTDV, an 11-year-old boy who disappeared 22 years ago, has returned as an ascetic, seeking alms from his mother.

The video of the person has become viral, as it shows the emotional reunion between mother and son. The man can be seen in the traditional attire of an ascetic and is playing a three-stringed traditional musical instrument Sarangi. He could also be seen singing melancholic tunes while requesting alms from his mother.

According to the report, the man sings the folk song of King Bharthari, a central character of popular folklore. In that song involving King Bharthari, he describes how Bharthari left a prosperous kingdom to become a monk.

With he person sings, the video captures the mother weeping.

Report says that Ratipal Singh’s son, Pinku disappeared from their home in Delhi in 2002 at the age of 11 years. He was in disagreement with his father over playing marbles.

When his mother Bhanumati scolded him, he walked out of house only to visit his mother after two decades. He returned last week at Amethi’s Kharauli village. When villagers came to know, they immediately informed his parents who still reside in Delhi.

As parents arrived, they recognized Pinku from a scar on his body. But after a short reunion, Pinku again left the village and his mother.

Meanwhile, Pinku’s father alleged the religious sect that his son belongs to is asking for 11 lakh to release him. “I do not have 11 in my pocket, how can I pay 11 lakh?” NDTV quoted Pinku’s father as saying.

However, Pinku clarified that his visit was not driven by family ties, but rather by a religious ritual. Explaining more, he said that aspiring monks must complete a ritual where they receive alms from their mother, which marks their official transition into the monastic life.
