Thodupuzha: A mother hopes for her son who went missing three decades ago. Seventy-year-old Girija, a native of Thodupuzha and Manakkad, is moving on with her life waiting for her son Sajan Kumar, who went missing from her home in Delhi in 1994.
In the 1990s, Girija, along with her children Sajjan and Sneha, moved to Delhi’s RK Reach Puram. RK His son studied in Kerala Public School, Puram. When the class 10 exam results came out, Sajan did not get the expected marks. His father reprimanded him for that. A dejected Sajan left home on the night of August 17, 1994. On the same day, RK lodged a complaint at the Puram police station, but the investigation led nowhere.
A few months later, Sajan received a letter saying that he had been offered a temporary job at a Maruti company in Uttar Pradesh. Later, letters would come every two months. The content of the letter was that he was afraid that he would return and that his father would fight. But there was no sign of a residence or other information. Sometimes letters were sent under the name Suresh Kumar.
In 1996, when Chandrasekharan Nair retired from work, the family returned home. Chandrasekaran Nair died 12 years ago. After marrying her daughter, Girija was left alone in Manakkate’s house.
Meanwhile, many people have informed Girija that they have seen Sajan in Mumbai and China as well, giving hope. This mother waits by making offerings and making vows with the sole desire to catch a glimpse of her beloved son at least once before wearing glasses.
