48 years ago two siblings were separated. Now, after decades, a 75-year-old T.P. Mammikutty and his sister Eyyathu, both from Kerala, met their long-lost brother Hamza Sarkar from Pakistan.

The reunion happened in Abu Dhabi.

Sarkar had gone missing from Kerala in 1951 when he was 11 years old. “He was fond of travelling. One day our mother sent him out to graze the cattle. He never returned,” recalled Mammikutty.

“I boarded a train to Kolkata. From Kolkata I went to Bangladesh, which was then part of Pakistan. Later I went to Karachi. However, I returned home after 18 years in 1968,” Sarkar said. His family set up a grocery shop for him but he ventured out again after nine months and never returned.



 

When Sarkar’s daughter Aasiya and Mammikutty’ grandson Nadirshah, connected on Facebook, the families soon exchanged numbers and decided to meet.

 

“I never thought I would see my brother and sister in this lifetime. I have waited for this moment for so long and now I do not want to leave them and go to Pakistan,” Sarkar said.
