Mother, son reunite after 18 years

OUR CORRESPONDENT, Patuakhali
Mother, son reunite after 18 years
Bakuli Rani with her son Thakur Chandra Howlader

Bakuli Rani, 70, had been missing for the past 18 years. She came back home two days ago after her grandson recognised her on the road. The elderly woman's return to her family was even more melodramatic than the stories dished out in movie theatres.

Thakur Chandra Howlader, son of Bakuli Rani, said she used to live in Taltala village of Paradakua area of Galachipa upazila in Patuakhali district. “My father Makham Chandra Howlader passed away long ago,” he added.   

Bakuli Rani’s daughter, Prakash Ranee, was married in India. “My mother disappeared after she went to see my sister in India. We looked for her for a long time, but all our efforts proved futile,” said Thakur.

“My son Ripon saw his grandmother on the road near Titas cinema two days ago and recognised her. He immediately called me to tell me about the surprising discovery,” Thakur said.

“On reaching the spot, I could identify my mother. She looked frail and exhausted,” Thakur said, tears rolling down his cheeks.        

Four years back, a hotel owner saw Bakuli Rani lying in front of Mridha Hotel near Titas cinema and gave her shelter. Bakuli became popular in the area. Some locals and the local councillors aided her in case of any need. Two days ago, Ripon happened to pass by that area.

He saw some people huddled together and went to see what had happened. He immediately recognised her grandmother and called his father.     

The rest is history. The local councillor is happy that Bakuli Ranee was reunited with her family.
