Years later, he swapped the map of India on his wall for Google Earth scouring it for landmarks he recognised from his childhood. One day, he saw something he recognised. And he set off on a journey to find his mother, half a world away...Saroo Brierley is an India born Australian businessman. He grew up with an adopted family in Tasmania, Australia.
