New Delhi: Apart from bilateral and business angle, Prime Minister Narendra Modi`s Nepal visit on Sunday will also showcase a humanitarian aspect - reunion of a child with his parents after many years.

According to news reports, PM Modi will personally reunite Jeet Bahadur, a Nepal-origin boy, whom he found as a child and nurtured over the years, with his parents in Kathmandu today.

Expressing his happiness towards the Nepal visit, which is being done by an Indian prime minister after 17 years, PM wrote on the microblogging website Twitter in Hindi - (I will handover a son (Jeet Bahadur) to his parents tomorrow and am very happy about it.)

"On a personal note, my Nepal visit is very special... Some personal emotions are also attached to this visit," Modi further wrote on the eve of his two-day trip.

In a series of tweets, the Prime Minister said he met Bahadur years back in a helpless condition and narrated some subsequent developments.

"Years back, I met a child Jeet Bahadur in a helpless condition. He knew nothing, where to go, what to do. He did not know anybody, nor did he understand the language," Modi tweeted.

"Guided by God, I started thinking about him. Gradually, he developed interest in studies and playing. He also learned Gujrati language," he wrote.

Modi added, sometime back, he was able to locate Bahadur`s parents. "Thankfully, we were able to locate his parents. I am glad that tomorrow the parents would be reunited with their son," the Prime Minister wrote.

However, the tweets did not mention when and where Modi had met Jeet Bahadur first and what was Bahadur`s age then and now.
