Tranmere, Howrah and Kolkata (or Calcutta if that’s how you remember it)

My last posting determined a connection between Howrah and Kolkata.

This triggered my memory of Saroo Brierley’s real life story published last year by Penguin Books, in ‘A Long Way Home’.  Having survived the streets of India including Kolkata as a lost child, Saroo was adopted by a Tranmere family. The book is an uplifting and enlightening read. Saroo’s story is one of luck, extreme persistence, love, family and self-belief.  He achieved his dream against all odds.  An extraordinary story.
