Enjoy your reading! 1. Compare and contrast Saroo’s experience riding on a train as a child versus riding on a train as an adult, returning to his mother’s village? Saroo held some assumptions about that night, as a child, on the train. What was the long-held assumption about that night on the train that was challenged? When Saroo rode the train as a child he was extremely tried and scared. He ran back and forth tying to get help and ended up wearing himself out and falling back asleep. As an adult he wanted to ride the train again to relive the experience. He tried to figure out what train he might have taken 25 years ago but it was hard to figure out because there different ways he might hae takn to get there. He had asumed that the train ride was onl about 14 hours when in reality it was close to 29 hours. He couldn't quite rememeber if he had been on the train that whole trip or mananged to change train at some point. 2. In the Epilogue, Saroo writes, “The moment when my two mothers met for the first time was an incredible milestone” (267).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
