    It has now emerged that Prime Minister Narendra Modihas been the guardian of a Nepali boy for over a decade, looking after his education and well being.
    Narendra Modi with Jeet Bahadur.
    Jeet Bahadur, a poor Nepali migrant, whom Modi met by chance in 1998 and decided to look after, is now pursuing a BBA degree from Ahmedabad.
    Jeet himself came to Gujarat by chance, after boarding a wrong train from Delhi in 1998.
    Jeet was born in a poor family in Lokaha village in Nawalparasi district of Nepal.
    The boy later accompanied his brother, Dashrath, to Delhi, to look for work, like thousands of other migrants from his country.
    He found work in Rajasthan but did not like it and decided to return to Nepal after a few days. But destiny had something else in store for him.
    Jeet, instead of boarding a train to Gorakhpur, boarded one going to Ahmedabad.
    There he met a woman who took him to meet Modi, who had not then become the chief minister. Jeet's life changed from there on.
    Meanwhile, Jeet's family had lost hope of ever reuniting with him. But their wish was fulfilled in 2011 when a Nepalese businessmen, Vinod Chaudhary, visited Ahmedabad to attend a FICCI function.
    Modi, who was chief minister of Gujarat then, also came to the function. When Chaudhary invited him to visit Nepal, Modi said he would definitely visit the country if the businessmen could manage to obtain information about his godson's family.
    Chaudhary got back with all the information in 30 hours.
    As a result, Jeet finally visited home in 2011 after a long hiatus, carrying a photograph of him shaking hands with Modi.
    Bahadur told his parents that Modi took good care of him and ensured his education just like a father.
    Since then, Bahadur's family has shot into prominence. Now with Modi finally visiting Nepal as India's Prime Minister in a few days, Jeet's parents are doubly happy.
