The boy is identified as Parabaran Mehavannan, born in 1996 - lost one of her sisters whose violin he was carrying.  More about it once I get full report or we may look to Vibaviattigala, our Sri Lanka member.

Ganga, I checked out your website and if you like, you can enter it in your profile so that it shows up under all your posts. Very interesting stuff.

I have several friends that live in Nepal. I'll email them and see if they have heard of this story or know of this child, probably now near 25-30 years of age.
