The Hush Post: Truth is stranger than fiction. Such magical things can happen in Bollywood films but not in real life, one would think! What if you knew a beggar and he turned out to be a crorepati? It will definitely leave you open-mouthed. An old beggar living in Ralpur, Rae Bareli district in UP has been found to be in possession of an Aadhar Card and Fixed Deposit (FD) papers worth over a crore.
The poor condition of a beggar caught attention of Swami Bhaskar Swaroop ji Maharaj of Angroom school. The beggar was taken under the ashram’s guardianship.
After being fed with food, the old beggar was given a haircut and made to take bath. While cleaning him, Swami’s assistants also recovered a safety deposit key from his clothes.
The beggar was identified as Muttaiah Nadar based on information from Aadhar Card and his contact details traced his hometown to Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu. On contacting Nadar’s family members, his identity was confirmed, and he was handed over to his daughter Geeta, who flew from Tamil Nadu to take her father back. She thanked the Swami and all his workers in the ashram. Geeta revealed that she lost track of her father six months ago in a train journey. She claimed her father lost his way and memory probably after coming under the influence of drugs forcefully injected into him.
Swami Bhaskar Swaroop appealed to police and government officials in Ralpur, Rae Bairelly to be considerate towards beggars and lunatics wandering in the town and enquire about their whereabouts so that they can be reunited with their families.
