'This year, all I have is my loneliness and the company of the four walls of my house.'

Mr Raghav says the stress of the situation had begun to take its toll on the pair's relationship as they desperately tried in vain to search for their child.

He said: 'When Bikramjeet went missing, I was devastated. But without my wife I feel so helpless. I think my world has come to an end.'

Raghav, first married at the age of 24. But after being widowed for 25 years, he married Shakuntala.

'Shakuntala and I have been together for 23 years,' Raghav recalls.

'But 23 years later, she seems to have chosen her path. All I can do it is wait for her to return.

'I sit by the door most of the time. I think she will return soon. I am waiting. I love her and I know she loves me,' he says with a sigh.
