Amborish Roychoudhury of Mumbai returned home only to find that he had lost his bag with his Macbook inside it in a Mumbai local train. Amborish lost all hope of finding his belongings-Mumbai locals are crowded and hundreds would want to make a quick buck with a find as expensive as this. But, something rather unusual happened with Amborish. Viresh Narsingh Kele, a housekeeper with the Mumbai railways returned Amborish’s bag and laptop.

According to Amborish’s facebook post, Viresh found his name and home address in an envelope inside the bag and travelled all the way to his house to return them. Viresh refused to accept any reward for his act. The Huffington Post gives Amborish’s Facebook post in detail:

“I consider myself an atheist. But this man, Viresh Narsingh Kele, he restored my faith – in a manner of speaking. He IS God. Viresh came to my doorstep and returned my lost backpack and Macbook Air. He is a Housekeeper with the Railways, and bumped into the bag while cleaning the train at the car shed at Panvel. Opened my laptop, spotted my name. Found my address in a discarded envelope inside the bag, and traveled all the way. We became friends. Viresh refused to accept any money whatsoever. And I might’ve been foolish to offer it. The Railway Police “couldn’t find” my bag after “searching through” trains, but my God handed it over to me. Also – I love you, Mumbai. Over the course of one night, my world was demolished and rebuilt. All over again.”

Think Change India thanks Viresh for having done the right thing by returning Amborish’s belongings. We hope that Viresh inspires many more to take the right path in all walks of life.
