Through a Facebook post shared by a Bhojpuri star, an elderly woman reunited with her family after missing from her home a year ago. 71-year-old Nirmala Devi left her home in Danapur, Bihar in July last year and the family tried hard to locate her but was not found. Bhojpuri film actor Khesari Lal Yadav was in Prayagraj in connection with the shooting of his film in March this year.
On 15 March, he went to an ashram in Naini area to celebrate his birthday. He cut his birthday cake with the people of the ashram. A few days ago, he posted a picture of this event on his Facebook page. Ram Pratap Singh, a relative of Nirmala Devi, saw the Facebook photo and informed the family.
Mahesh Mal, nephew of Nirmala Devi, who lives in Lucknow, said, “My aunt left home from Danapur on July 28, 2020 and when we started looking for her, could not be found. We had no idea that she could live in Prayagraj. But when we got the news through one of our relatives that she can be seen in the picture posted on Facebook post, we reached Prayagraj and she found us there. Now she is staying with us in Lucknow. “
Sushil Srivastava, the manager of the Adharshila Vriddha Ashram, told that Nirmala Devi had left the house due to some family reasons. “She somehow reached Varanasi, went to Vindhyachal and then went to Zero Road bus stop in Prayagraj.”
He said, “On 3 August last year, he was brought to the ashram. We tried to locate his house, but all the efforts proved to be useless as he did not remember anything properly. ” Nirmala Devi has three daughters, Pratibha, Sangeeta and Prabha Singh.
Sushil said that when the family members met Nirmala Devi and requested her to come with them, they refused, saying that she is happy and comfortable in the ashram. However, she re-counseled him after which she agreed to live with her brother in Lucknow.
