I thought there is a point where Romney did really well, I think all of us agree, that was on the larger general issue on the failure of this administration. When Romney went large, he did well. When Romney went small, trying to answer each point here and there, I think Obama got the better of him. But there was one critical issue in this debate. Obama was at sea. Romney, I think had a huge opening that he missed. And then, there was one tactical error that Romney made which was he kept asking the president questions. And that gave obama a chance to counterpunch. There was a big opening that was missed.
I think it was contaminated by the actions of the moderator. And that they blamed this anti-Islam video, including the president saying it six times at the United Nations. Does that answer square and will the fallout from that be a problem for this White House? I think it will be a problem for the White House. They have clearly told untruths, fictions. The president perpetrated them two weeks later on Letterman when he spoke about Libya in the context of the video when everybody knew it was not an issue at the time. Right now, in the context of the debate, I think he got away with it because there was no actual response at the time on the stage and when you had moderator meeting in behalf of Obama, that I think swung it in a way that was basically incorrect and unfair.
The revelation came as new documents suggested internal disagreement over appropriate levels of security before the attack, which occurred on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. Briefing reporters ahead of a hotly anticipated congressional hearing today, State Department officials provided their most detailed rundown of how a peaceful day in Benghazi devolved into a sustained attack that involved multiple groups of men armed with weapons such as machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades and mortars over an expanse of more than a mile.
The administration counters that it has provided its best intelligence on the attack and that it refined its explanation as more information came to light. Alongside defining the nature of the Benghazi attack, Congress is looking into whether adequate security was in place. According to an email obtained Tuesday by the AP, the top State Department security official in Libya told a congressional investigator that he had argued unsuccessfully for more security in the weeks before Ambassador Chris Stevens, a State Department computer specialist and two former Navy SEALs were killed.
Eric Nordstrom, who was the regional security officer in Libya, also referenced a State Department document detailing security incidents in Libya between June and July that demonstrated the danger there to Americans. Nordstrom is among the witnesses set to testify today before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Nordstrom said the incidents demonstrated that security in Libya was fragile and could degrade quickly.
Nordstrom also said diplomats in Libya were told not to request an extension of a member special operations military team that left in August, according to an official of the Oversight panel. The official was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and thus spoke only on the condition of anonymity. The State Department has said it never received a request to extend the military team beyond August, and added that its members were replaced with a security team that had the same skills.
The Democratic memo said Nordstrom told committee investigators that he sent two cables to State Department headquarters in March and July requesting additional diplomatic security agents for Benghazi, but that he received no responses. He stated that Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant secretary for international programs, wanted to keep the number of U. The FBI is still investigating the attack.
Clinton also has named a State Department review panel to look into the security arrangements in Libya. Militant Link to Libya Attack. The revolutions that swept the Middle East and North Africa also emptied prisons of militants, a problem now emerging as a potential new terrorist threat. Matt Bradley has details on The News Hub. Intelligence reports suggest that some of the attackers trained at camps he established in the Libyan Desert, a former U.
Western officials say Mr. The Benghazi attacks gave a major boost to his prominence in their eyes. They say others are also trying to exploit weaknesses in newly established governments and develop a capacity for strikes that could go well beyond recent violent protests in Libya, Egypt and elsewhere. That may still come to pass. But, he said, the resulting weak central governments are leaving room for terrorist leaders to operate. The new threats are particularly relevant in light of the U. For days after the attack, intelligence officials and the Obama administration said it was likely the outgrowth of protests sparked by an anti-Islamic video made in the U.
Intelligence officials now believe the attack was carried out by local militants who were in contact with regional members of al Qaeda-affiliated groups, using the eruption of protests elsewhere as an opportunity to mount an assault on U. That belated conclusion has raised questions about the adequacy of intelligence and security preparations at U.
Of the new militant operatives, Mr. Ahmad is among the most worrisome to Western officials. Ahmad attended college, studying either literature or commerce, and went to Afghanistan in the late s. There, said his associates, he trained to make bombs. On returning to Egypt in the s, a former U. Ahmad became head of the operational wing of Egyptian Islamic Jihad, which was then headed by Ayman al-Zawahiri, a physician who is now the chief of al Qaeda.
Ahmad earned a reputation as a hard-liner by rejecting it, according to Mr. Former militants who knew Mr. Ahmad in an Egyptian prison, where he was locked up around , describe a hardened inmate who showed belligerence toward the guards. While most prisoners submitted to random cell searches, Mr. Ahmad often refused to let guards remove items from his cell, the former inmates say. He would start by preaching to the guards and escalate to shouted insults, said a former jihadi imprisoned with him starting in That often landed Mr. Ahmad in solitary confinement, in a roofless cell exposed to the elements.
The guards sometimes let in dogs or insects to harass him, said the ex-jihadi. Freed last year, Mr. Ahmad is building his own terror group, say Western officials, who call it the Jamal Network. They say he appears to be trying to tap former fellow inmates such as Murjan Salim, a man who, like Mr. Former associates of Mr. Salim is directing aspiring jihadis to Mr. In an interview in Cairo, Mr. Salim denied any connection to jihad, citing his physical limitations.
He uses a wheelchair, a result, he said, of being wounded by U. Also freed in Egypt last year was Mohammed al-Zawahiri, a brother of the al Qaeda leader. Mohammed al-Zawahiri backed a protest in Cairo three weeks ago but says he had no role in a later invasion of U. Ahmad connect with the al Qaeda chief. In an interview, Mohammed al-Zawahiri denied that, saying that though imprisoned with Mr.
Zawahiri denied resuming past militant activities. Ahmad, associates say he now lives in Libya. At his camps, militants are believed to be training future suicide bombers, say current and former U. Also believed present were militants affiliated with other groups, including Ansar al Sharia, a local group, and al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, which has origins in Algeria. The Obama administration on Friday adjusted its assessment.
The latest thinking is that militants, after seeing the mayhem in Egypt, decided to use the opportunity to mount attacks they had done general planning for. Barfi, based on his contacts with Ahmad associates in Egypt, said Mr. Ahmad has discussed attacking American targets in countries where the U. How well he and other militants freed during the Arab Spring can take advantage of the security vacuums left by the overthrow of authoritarian regimes remains unknown, said one U.

Celui-ci devrait confirmer son statut de favori avec la primaire du Nevada, qui aura lieu samedi. Voters are likely to know two things about Mitt Romney: Not since the 19th century have the wealthiest expressed so much certainty that they deserve what they have, even as their fellow citizens have less and less.
To be a Mormon, on the other hand, is to feel perpetually uncertain of your place in America. There is no Napoleon Dynamite about American Muslims. In the words of early Mormon leader Lorenzo Snow: According to his biographers Michael Kranish and Scott Helman, Romney was horrified when one of his Bain partners purchased himself a private plane. Mitt and Ann Romney have donated millions to the LDS church, a substantial portion of which has gone to its own internal welfare state for members in need.
And then there is the uniquely problematic character of Mormon scripture, which makes claims about people, events, and even whole civilizations for which there is no external evidence at all. As a businessman, Mitt Romney was a brutally realistic analyst. But on the most important questions in his life, he may have closed his mind to unwelcome facts.
Senate-and they may win the White House. Why Mitt Romney and 6 million Mormons have the secret to success. The show, which is staged at the foot of the hill where Joseph Smith says he found ancient prophetic writings recorded on golden plates, draws thousands of Latter-day Saint viewers from across the world each summer. The show is drawing national attention this year partly because of another popular — albeit significantly less G-rated — Mormon-themed musical on Broadway.
Take June 2, when the former Massachusetts governor traveled to a quaint farm in Stratham, N. Romney has to overcome several mountainous challenges before capturing the Republican nomination, and so he spent most of the day trying to reduce them to molehills. The Senate, meanwhile, is led by Mormon Harry Reid.
Beyond the Beltway, the Twilight vampire novels of Mormon Stephenie Meyer sell tens of millions of copies, Mormon convert Glenn Beck inspires daily devotion and outrage with his radio show, and HBO generated lots of attention with the Big Love finale. And nowhere is the gap between increased exposure and actual progress more pronounced than in politics. Congress to ask if they would be willing to discuss their faith; the only politicians who agreed to speak on the record were the four who represent districts with substantial Mormon populations.
The evasiveness extends even to presidential candidates. I have [an adopted] daughter from India who has a very distinct Hindu tradition, one that we would celebrate during Diwali. So you kind of bind all this together. One could argue that Romney and Huntsman, like their Mormon colleagues in Congress, are right to take religion off the table; after all, many politicians are all too eager to exploit it. A new Pew poll finds that nearly a quarter of respondents would be less likely to vote for a Mormon presidential candidate.
In a vacuum, some people will inevitably conclude that Mormonism is too weird for mainstream America. Instead, it centers on the distinctive values and characteristics that have come to define Mormons outside the church walls—in their communities, in their careers, and in the culture at large. Those inclined to think of Mormons as a band of zealots bent on amending the Constitution to outlaw cappuccino may never be convinced. The book told the story of an ancient Israelite civilization in the Americas, including a post-resurrection visit from Jesus Christ. Many other revelations followed, including the most notorious of all: First they were chased from Ohio, then from Missouri, where Gov.
The sect might have perished then and there had Brigham Young not stepped in to succeed Smith, leading its members on a grueling 1,mile exodus from the boundaries of the United States to the barren desert south of the Great Salt Lake. Even after the church officially abandoned the practice of polygamy in , opening the door to statehood for Utah, Mormons remained very much on the cultural and religious margins. Today the legacy of that marginalization continues to mark the Mormon outlook on the world. Mormons worship together for hours on Sundays, perform spiritual and economic outreach to members of the Mormon community, and pay a tithe one 10th of their income to the church.
Some spend additional hours performing secretive rituals and sacraments including vicarious baptism for the non-Mormon dead in specially consecrated temples. In an age of spiritual consumerism, when many people regard religion as a therapeutic lifestyle aid, faith is often expected to serve the individual. The church runs and finances one of the largest private universities in the country Brigham Young University.
Many members serve two-year missions abroad for the church, acquiring fluency in foreign languages and foreign cultures along the way. More than many other faiths, the Mormon church prepares its members to engage intelligently with the broader culture and the wider world. This progression toward ever-higher stages of divine perfection extends beyond death, continuing into the afterlife.
Theological commitments also influence the way members of the Mormon church engage in politics. Members vote Republican in overwhelming numbers. Congressman Jeff Flake R-Ariz. The church goes far beyond its comrades in the culture war in holding that an ideal marriage—one between a man and a woman, undertaken as a sacrament in a Mormon temple—is forever binding, with marital vows, and procreation, extending into eternity. But the same constellation of views can lead toward -consensus-building moderation.
And therein lies the paradox of Mormonism in America today. Consider the TV and Internet ad campaign recently started by the church: Mormons are just like everyone else. And it is their distinctiveness that is influencing the broader culture. And the list goes on. Politics—the field with perhaps the greatest potential to change how most Americans view Mormons—has yet to catch up. But while national figures such as Romney and Huntsman are still reluctant to highlight their Mormon faith, other politicians are starting to see their Mormonism as a selling point.
Matt Salmon is one of them. After losing to Janet Napolitano in , partly because of that independent polygamy ad, Salmon, a former congressman, retreated from public life for a while. There are nearly seven million Mormons in America. This is the number the Mormons themselves use. It is the number of people who subscribe to Better Homes and Gardens magazine. London boasts seven million people. So does San Francisco. In fact, worldwide, there are only about fourteen million Mormons.
Fourteen million is the population of Cairo or Mali or Guatemala. Fourteen million Americans ate Thanksgiving dinner in a restaurant in Yet in the first decade or so of the new millennium, some members of the American media discovered the Mormons and began covering them as though the Latter-day Saints had just landed from Mars.
It was as though Utah was about to invade the rest of the country. It was all because of politics and pop culture, of course. Stephenie Meyer had written the astonishingly popular Twilight series about vampires. Matt Stone and Trey Parker had created the edgy South Park cartoon series—which included a much- discussed episode about Mormons—and then went on to create the blatantly blasphemous and Saint-bashing Broadway play The Book of Mormon. It has become one of the most successful productions in American theater history.
Management guru Stephen Covey made millions telling them how to lead even better. There were so many famous Mormons, in fact, that huge websites were launched just to keep up with it all. Notables ranged from movie stars like Katherine Heigl to professional athletes to country music stars like Gary Allan to reality television contestants and even to serial killers like Glenn Helzer, whose attorney argued that the Saints made him the monster he was. The media graciously reminded the public that Mormon criminals were nothing new, though: More than a few commentators predicted it would all pass quickly.
The reality was—and is—that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has reached critical mass. It is that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints has reached sufficient numbers—and has so permeated every level of American society on the strength of its religious value—that prominent politicians, authors, athletes, actors, newscasters, and even murderers are the natural result, in some cases even the intended result. They are fruit of the organic growth of their religion. In , there were just over a million Mormons in the world. The religion was still thought of as odd by most Americans.
There had been famous Mormons like the occasional US Senator or war hero, but these were few and far between. Its producers worked hard to strain out nearly every possible religious theme, a nod to the increasingly secular American public. Though it starred heavyweights like Vincent Price and Tyrone Power, the movie failed miserably, even in Utah.
Then, in , a man named David O. He was the Colonel Harlan Sanders of Mormonism. He often wore white suits, had an infectious laugh, and under- stood the need to appeal to the world outside the Church. Most LDS presidents had either been polygamist oddballs or stodgy old men in the eyes of the American public. McKay was more savvy, more media aware.
He became so popular that film legend Cecil B. DeMille asked him to consult on the now classic movie The Ten Commandments. He also began sharpening its focus. This hinted at increasing power. The s were good for Mormons. Then came the s. Like most religions, the LDS took a beating from the counterculture movement, but by the s they were again on the rise.
New labels joined new symbols. A massive, otherworldly, ,square-foot Temple just north of Washington, DC, was dedicated in the s, a symbol of LDS power and permanence for the nation to behold. By , the dynamics of LDS growth were so fine-tuned that influential sociologist Rodney Stark made the mind- blowing prediction that the Latter-day Saints would have no fewer than 64 million members and perhaps as many as million by In the following ten years, LDS membership exploded from 4.
The Mormons—a misguided cult in the view of most traditional Christians, most Baptists in particular—had to be stopped. This was in and it is hard to exaggerate what this meant to the Latter-day Saints. A gifted Mormon leader, Mitt Romney, rescued the games after a disastrous bidding scandal. A sparkling Mormon city hosted the games. The LDS Church capitalized on it all. It sent volunteers, missionaries, and publicists scurrying to every venue.
It hosted grand events for the world press. It made sure that every visitor received a brochure offering an LDS guided tour of the city. Visitors from around the world read these words: What followed was the decade of the new millennium we have already surveyed. Mormons seemed to be everywhere, seemed to be exceptional in nearly every arena, seemed to have moved beyond acceptance by American culture to domination of American culture.
At least this was what some feared at the time. But Mormons did not dominate the country. True, they were visible and successful, well educated and well spoken, patriotic and ever willing to serve. Yet what they had achieved was not domination. It was not a conspiracy either, as some alleged. It was not anything approaching a takeover or even the hope for a takeove. Few observers seemed to be able to explain how this new level of LDS prominence in American society came about. They reached for the usual answers trotted out to account for such occurrences: Each of these explanations was found wanting.
The truth lay within Mormonism itself. What the Saints had achieved in the United States was what Mormonism, unfettered and well led, will nearly always produce. Plant Mormonism in any country on earth and pretty much the same results will occur. If successful, it will produce deeply moral individuals who serve a religious vision centered upon achievement in this life. They will aggressively pursue the most advanced education possible, understand their lives in terms of overcoming obstacles, and eagerly serve the surrounding society.
The family will be of supernatural importance to them, as will planning and investing for future generations. They will be devoted to community, store and save as a hedge against future hardship, and they will esteem work as a religious calling. They will submit to civil government and hope to take positions within it. They will have advantages in this. Their beliefs and their lives in all-encompassing community will condition them to thrive in administrative systems and hierarchies—a critical key to success in the modern world.
Ever oriented to a corporate life and destiny, they will prize belonging and unity over individuality and conflict every time. These hallmark values and behaviors—the habits that distinguish Mormons in the minds of millions of Americans— grow naturally from Mormon doctrine. They are also the values and behaviors of successful people. Observers who think of the religion as a cult—in the Jim Jones sense that a single, dynamic leader controls a larger body of devotees through fear, lies, and manipulation—usually fail to see this.
Mormon doctrine is inviting, the community it produces enveloping and elevating, the lifestyle it encourages empowering in nearly every sense. Success, visibility, prosperity, and influence follow. This is the engine of the Mormon ascent. Mormons make achievement through organizational management a religious virtue. It leads to prosperity, visibility, and power.
Mormons rise in this life because it is what their religion calls for. This is the lifeblood of earthly Mormonism. Management, leadership, and organizing are the essential skills of the faith. It is no wonder that Mormons have grown so rapidly and reached such stellar heights in American culture. And there is much more to come. Bush and The Faith of Barack Obama. He is also a popular lecturer and speaker. His latest book, The Mormonizing of America, has already begun shaping the religious discussion surrounding the presidential race.
Still, the observation is fitting. The Republican National Committee quickly put out an ad consisting of nearly a minute of such clips followed by the caption: When two rhesus macaques are trapped together in a small cage, they try everything they can to avoid a fight. To avoid immediate aggression, and to reduce stress, an act of communication is needed to break the ice and make it clear to the other monkey that no harm is intended or expected.
Macaque monkeys bare their teeth to communicate fear and friendly intentions. This act can both relax and appease the other monkey, virtually eliminating the chance of an attack. So, if you are a rhesus macaque and find yourself trapped in a small cage with another macaque, you know what to do: If you are a human and find yourself riding in an elevator with a stranger, in theory you could do the same thing or the human equivalent thereof: A smile is an instinctive gesture of submission.
But when a man uncontrollably smiles at a potential or actual adversary, it is a show of weakness. Since the ship has a titanic design flaw—a gaping O-shaped hole right in the hull—that was an impossible task. Biden had ample reason to find the situation intimidating. And so he overcompensated for his weakness by acting the bully in an attempt to dominate Ryan.
That debate was so annoying! Some of the CNN commentators are talking about how Biden did what he came to do, to fire up the Democrats. Okay, well, but independents were watching, and Biden was horribly rude. He created this disturbing atmosphere of anxiety. Again, that last point seems to us a misreading. Biden probably could not have done any better unless he suddenly developed a regard for his own dignity. The hard part of building a nuclear weapon is to get the fissile material, bomb designs are a dime a dozen and anyone who has access to a copy of the Progressive Magazine from the s when they published a bomb design they had dug up from some documents that were found in the Los Alamos public library can build one.
Khan design has long been available to them including any refinements the North Koreans have made. Making a warhead that can fit on a missile may be harder, but building a basic nuclear weapon that could be put on an airliner or a ship is easy once you have the material. Even when poor Biden tried to be witty, he failed. For our younger readers, Lloyd Bentsen was slightly famous in the olden days for not having become vice president. Joe Biden, however, called it by its popular name: It seems every vice presidential debate I hear this kind of stuff about panels.
Why would Biden use a term that people on his side claim is false and invidious? He has absorbed the idea that his political side has a monopoly on Truth and all dissenters are either fools or knaves. He thought he was ridiculing Palin, but she gets the last laugh. He has helped to propagate her idea instead. Self-satisfied smirking was sort of his Thing! But the smirking was but a prelude to the snickering. New York magazine has a fine summary of the controversy surrounding the chuckle: But this particular style of laughing—i.
It was a laugh that also implicitly suggested that the audience—the intelligent, informed, rational, beautiful, amazing-taste-in-music-having, weight-losing audience—was in on the joke. It was not an arrogant laugh; at no point did Biden seem condescending to anyone but Paul Ryan. Everyone wants to be in on every joke. Biden on the other hand, showed off a wide variety of expressions: Minutes after the debate was over, LaughinJoeBiden had already picked up thousands of followers.
Joe Biden shares that laugh that Denzel employs before he throat punches someone. Arrogance is NOT a strength. Biden should laugh a little less. Gore sighed and it cost him. He came off as annoying. Maybe this is a deliberate cunning strategy. You ripped him a new one while smiling! Il leur a promis de leur envoyer chaque mois dollars pour compenser leurs faibles revenus. A Home at the End of Google Earth.
Separated from his older brother at a train station, five-year-old Saroo Munshi Khan found himself lost in the slums of Calcutta. Nearly 20 years later, living in Australia, he began a painstaking search for his birth home, using ingenuity, hazy memories, and Google Earth.
It was just a small river flowing over a dam, but to five-year-old Saroo Munshi Khan it felt like a waterfall. He played barefoot under the downpour as trains passed nearby. When night fell, he would walk a couple miles home. Home was a tiny mud-brick house with a tin roof. He lived there with his mother, Kamala, who worked long hours carrying bricks and cement, two older brothers, Guddu and Kullu, and a younger sister, Shekila.
His father, Munshi, had abandoned the family two years earlier. Guddu, then aged nine, had assumed his role as the man of the house. Guddu spent his days searching passenger trains for fallen coins. On one occasion, he was arrested for loitering at the train station. As the boys made their way out of the coop—holding their shirts like hammocks, full of eggs—two security guards came after them, and they were separated.
But he had a keen sense of direction and paid attention to his surroundings. He retraced the journey in his mind, and his feet followed—through the dusty streets, turning past the cows and the cars, a right here near the fountain, a left there by the dam—until he stood panting at his doorstep.
He was out of breath and nearly out of eggs, so many had cracked and oozed through his shirt. But he was home. Saroo began venturing farther away from home, confident that he could always retrace his steps. Early one evening, Guddu agreed to take his little brother to the railway station to search the compartments for change. The two got on a train to Burhanpur, about two hours away, and began scouring the floorboards for money as the train pulled away. The conductor never bothered them.
Though he only found peanut shells, Saroo was happy just to be with his favorite brother. By the time they hopped off the train at Burhanpur, Saroo felt exhausted and told his brother he needed to nap before they caught the next train back. Guddu took his hand and led him to a bench. Groggy and dazed, he wandered onto a waiting passenger train, assuming that Guddu must have been waiting for him inside.
There were only a few people in the carriage, but Saroo figured his brother would find him soon enough, so he settled back to sleep. When he woke, sunlight was streaming through the windows and the train was moving quickly through the countryside. Saroo had no idea how long he had been asleep and jumped up from his seat. There was no one else in the carriage, and, outside, the blurred grasslands were unrecognizable.
Unable to move to another carriage while the train was in motion, Saroo ran back and forth through the car, calling for his brother, to no avail. He had no food, no money, and no idea how far he had gone or was going. Saroo had to wait a few more hours before the train arrived at the next stop. The five-year-old—who had never ventured unaccompanied beyond his small town—was now wandering alone through a bustling train station. Desperately, he ran up to strangers pleading for help, but no one spoke Hindi. Saroo eventually climbed onto another train, hoping it might lead him home, but it led him to another strange town.
With night falling he rode back to the busy train station. Saroo saw what seemed to be a sea of homeless men, women, and children. He passed corpses as well. Fearful and confused, Saroo curled under a row of seats and went to sleep. He subsisted on whatever he could beg from strangers or find in the trash. Finally, after one last fruitless trip on a train, Saroo gave up and stepped back into the Calcutta train station, his new home. While he was crossing the train tracks, a man approached him, wanting to know what Saroo was up to. The man told him he lived close by.
Saroo followed him to his tin hut, where he was given a simple meal of dhal, rice, and water. The man gave him a place to sleep and the next day told him that a friend was going to come over and help him find his family. On the third day, while the man was at work, the friend showed up. Saroo told him he looked like the famous Indian cricket player Kapil Dev.
Then he told Saroo to come lie next to him in bed. As the friend peppered Saroo with questions about his family and hometown, Saroo began to worry. After finishing his egg curry, Saroo slowly washed the dishes, waiting for the right moment to make a run for it. When the men went for a cigarette, Saroo ran out the door as fast as he could.

He ran for what seemed like 30 minutes, darting down side streets, ignoring the sharp rocks that jabbed his bare feet. Finally out of breath, he sat down for a break. Up the road he saw the two men approaching, along with two or three others. Saroo crouched in a shadowy alleyway, praying that the men would pass without noticing him—which they eventually did. After Saroo had been living on the streets for a few weeks, a kind man who spoke a little Hindi took pity on him and gave him shelter for three days.
The next day Saroo was transferred to a juvenile home—a common endpoint for vagrant and criminal youth. The Indian Society for Sponsorship and Adoption issa , a nonprofit child-welfare group, paid regular visits to the home looking for children fit for adoption. Saroo was deemed a good candidate, and after no one responded to his description and photo in an issa missing-children bulletin, he was added to the adoption list.
Then one day he was handed a little red photo album. Saroo flipped through the album. There was a photo of a smiling white couple; the woman had red curly hair, and the man, slightly balding, wore a sport coat and tie. He saw a photo of a red-brick home with the same man waving on the front porch near a flower bed. An administrator translated the English text accompanying each photo. Saroo flipped the page and saw a postcard of a Qantas airplane in the sky. Saroo had never heard of Australia.
John and Sue Brierley were an earnest couple with charitable ideals who, though they were probably biologically capable of bearing children, chose to adopt a lost Indian child as a way of giving back to the world. The Brierleys had started their own company around the time that Saroo joined their family. They also owned a boat and would take their new son sailing along the Tasman Sea, where he learned to swim.
Despite the shock of the new lifestyle, Saroo adjusted, picking up the language as well as an Aussie accent. Though there were few Indians in Tasmania, he grew into a popular teenager; he was athletic and always had a girlfriend. His family expanded when his parents adopted another boy from India five years later.
But, privately, he was haunted by the mystery of his past. Will I ever see them again? Is my brother still alive? Recovering from an ugly breakup, he was drinking and partying more than usual. After years of ignoring his past, it finally came crashing back—the desire to find his roots, and himself. As the tiny trees and trains blurred on his screen, he had a moment of pause and wondered: It certainly seemed like a crazy idea. All he had was a laptop and some hazy memories, but Saroo was going to try.
Brahmapur, Badarpur, Baruipur, Bharatpur—a seemingly endless string of similar-sounding names. He could muster only a few landmarks to look for on Google Earth: He also remembered seeing a bridge and a large industrial tank near the more distant station where he was separated from his brother.
As he saw the mass of India glowing on his screen, the question was: He began in the most logical way he could imagine: The tracks led away from the city like a spiderweb, crisscrossing the country. After weeks of fruitlessly following the tracks, Saroo would get frustrated and periodically give up the search. About three years later, however, he became determined to pinpoint his birthplace. It happened just after he met his girlfriend Lisa, who as it happened had a fast Internet connection at her apartment. Late one night at her place, Saroo launched the program and marveled at its new speed and clarity.
Rather than searching haphazardly, he realized, he needed to narrow down his range. Drawing from an applied-mathematics course he had taken in college, Saroo reconceived the problem like a question on a standardized test. If he had fallen asleep on the train in the early evening and arrived the next morning in Calcutta, 12 hours had probably passed. If he knew how fast his train was going, he could multiply the speed by the time and determine the rough distance that he had traveled—and search Google Earth locations within that area. Saroo used Facebook and MySpace to contact four Indian friends he knew from college.
He asked them to ask their parents how fast trains traveled in India in the s. Saroo took the average speed—80 kilometers per hour—and, crunching the numbers, determined that he must have boarded the train roughly kilometers from Calcutta. With the satellite image of India on his screen, he opened an editing program and began slowly drawing a circle with a radius of roughly kilometers, with Calcutta at its center, creating a perimeter within which to search. At times in his life, he had been told that his facial structure resembled people from East India, so he decided to focus largely on that part of the circle.
But there were still dozens of twisting tracks to follow, and Saroo began spending hours a night on the trail. After months, researching and narrowing his range, Saroo focused in on the outer end of the radius, which was on the west side of India: This was it, the name of the station where he was separated from his brother that day, a couple hours from his home. Saroo scrolled up the train track looking for the next station.
He flew over trees and rooftops, buildings and fields, until he came to the next depot, and his eyes fell on a river beside it—a river that flowed over a dam like a waterfall. He needed to prove to himself that this was really it, that he had found his home. So, he put himself back into the body of the barefoot five-year-old boy under the waterfall: Saroo moved his cursor over the streets on-screen: Saroo stumbled to bed at two a.
He woke five hours later wondering if it had all been a dream. The name of the town was Khandwa. Saroo went to YouTube, searching for videos of the town. He found one immediately, and marveled as he watched a train roll through the same station he had departed from with his brother so long ago. Just wandering if there is a big foutain near the Cinema?
He had a faint memory of the name of his neighborhood in Khandwa and wanted confirmation. I think it starts with G. The town is Muslim one side and Hindus on the other which was 24 years ago but might be different now. Saroo posted one more message to the Facebook group. On February 10, , Saroo was looking down on India again—not from Google Earth this time, but from an airplane. The closer the trees below appeared, the more flashbacks of his youth popped into his mind. Though his adoptive father, John, had encouraged Saroo to pursue his quest, his mother was concerned about what he might find.
Perhaps his family had sent the boy away on purpose, so that they would have one less mouth to feed. For a moment at the airport, he was hesitant to board the plane. But this was a journey he was determined to complete. He had never really thought about what he would ask his mother if he saw her, but he now knew what he would say: Tired and drained odd hours later, he was in the back of a taxi pulling into Khandwa.
It was a far cry from Hobart. The dusty street teemed with people in flowing dhotis and burkas. Wild dogs and pigs roamed near barefoot children. Saroo found himself at the Khandwa train station, the very platform where he had left with his brother, 25 years before. The rest of the journey he would undertake on foot. Slinging his backpack over his shoulder, Saroo stood by the station and closed his eyes for a few moments, telling himself to find his path home. With every step, it felt like two films overlaying, his wispy memories from his childhood and the vital reality now. He passed the fountain where he had cut his leg, now run-down and much smaller than he remembered.
But despite the familiar landmarks, the town had changed enough that he began to doubt himself. At last, he found himself standing in front of a familiar mud-brick house with a tin roof. Saroo felt frozen as memories flickered before him like holograms. He saw himself as a child playing with his kite here during the day with his brother, sleeping outside to escape the heat of summer nights, curled up safely against his mother, looking up at the stars. She held a baby and began speaking to him in a language he could no longer speak or understand.
The town had rarely seen foreigners, and Saroo, dressed in a hoodie and Asics sneakers, seemed lost. He pointed to the house and recited the names of his family members. Oh my God, he thought, assuming they must be dead. Soon another curious neighbor wandered over, and Saroo repeated his list of names, showing him his picture. Another man took the picture from him and examined it for a moment and told Saroo he would be right back.
A few minutes later, the man returned and handed it back to him. In a daze, he followed the man around the corner; a few seconds later, he found himself in front of a mud-brick house where three women in colorful robes stood. Quickly he ran his eyes over the women, who seemed as numb with shock as he was. It may be you, he thought—then reconsidered: Then his eyes fell on the weathered woman in the middle. She wore a bright-yellow robe with flowers, and her gray hair, which had been dyed with streaks of orange, was pulled back in a bun.
Without saying anything, the woman stepped forward and hugged him. Then his mother took him by the hand and led her son home. She lived alone in a tiny two-room house with an army cot, a gas stove, and a locked trunk for her belongings. Soon a young woman with long black hair, a nose stud, and a brown robe came in with tears in her eyes and threw her arms around him. The family resemblance was visible to everyone there. It was his younger sister, Shekila. Then came a man a few years older than Saroo, with a mustache and the same wisps of gray in his wavy hair: I can see the resemblance!
He met his niece and nephews, his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, as more and more people crowded into the room. The entire time, his mother remained seated by him holding his hand. Despite the joy, there was skepticism. With the help of a friend who spoke English, Saroo told them of his incredible journey. She had searched for years, following the train tracks leading out of town just as he had sought the ones leading back. Finally she met with a fortune-teller who told her that she would be re-united with her boy.
Someone was missing, he realized, his eldest brother. His mother explained that about a month after he had disappeared his brother was found on the train track, his body split in two. No one knew how it had happened. But just like that, in the span of a few weeks, his mother had lost two sons. With her youngest son by her side again, Fatima prepared his favorite boyhood meal, curried goat. Together the family ate, soaking in this most impossible dream come true.
There are no more dead ends. My family is true and genuine, as we are in Australia She has thanked you, mum and dad, for bringing me up. I hope you know that you guys are first with me, which will never change. Perhaps there are a few psychologists who actually practice this way.

Thanks Cherry for getting this much needed dialogue going. Dear younger self, I am sorry that I let myself believe you were not good enough. After a lifetime of hearing Christian salvation sold to people as a kind of spiritual protection racket "believe in this or that will happen to you" , it's hard not to come to the conclusion that the world is to be divided into the Saved and the Lost, and that the destruction of the Lost will be the vindication of the Saved.
