Missing: Bhagu Singh | 101 Heartland | 101India

The only clear fact in the case of Bhagu Singh is this: he has been missing for 32 years.

Luxmi has been waiting for her husband, Bhagu Singh, to come back to her and their 3 children for 32 years now. He was captured by Pakistani rangers held in a Pakistani jail for crossing the border. Back home, the police and the officials live in denial while his loved ones refuse to give up.

Bhagu Singh was grazing his goats near Gohar Ka Tala, Rajasthan, 32 years ago. Gohar Ka Tala is located less than 2 km from the India-Pakistan border. In those days, there was no fencing on the border. Following his stray goats, Bhagu Singh crossed the border. Some have called him a thief, some a spy, some just a man who accidentally strayed across a border. One thing is for certain: Bhagu Singh has been missing for 32 years, leaving behind a wife and two children.

Missing chronicles the stories of people who strayed across the Indo-Pak border and have since been missing. People who were lost but never found, have been given up for dead by many but their families still cling on to the hope that they might return back home some day. Although traditionally borders separate countries,for some unfortunate families these borders have separated them from their loved ones.

Outside the metros and beyond the urban jungle live the sons and daughters of India’s heartland. This series tells their stories. 101 Heartland celebrates both unique communities and individual tales of hope, struggle, and reform. From the village of Bouncers just outside Delhi to the fascinating story of Ram Kumar Tyagi, once a wanted man but now a coach for aspiring female wrestlers, 101 Heartland tells stories for the heart, from the heartland.
