Dhangade who got lost as a child at a crowded railway station was reunited with his family after 24 years -- thanks to a tattoo on his arm. Dhangade was separated from his parents in 1989 aged just six when they were boarding a train. He ended up on his own in Mumbai, where he was cared for by a fisherman and then at two orphanages.
