- Saroo Brierley, hails from a small village, Ganesh Talai, near Khandwa and Burhanpur railway stations. In his autobiographical novel, Lion, he described how he accidentally boarded a train in Burhanpur and carried away to Howrah station. Soon after, he ended up destitute on Kolkata roads and eventually in an orphanage whence he was adopted by an Australian family. Years later Saroo returns back to his native place to meet his mother and other members of his family. This story was the subject of a major motion picture, by the same name.
