How To Find Your Lost Item - An Initiative By JMI's Student

Find Your Lost Keys, Wallet, Mobile Phone Etc

It is a good news to all that in the digital world we have now a communication medium to find your our lost item. Generally, we forget our important documents in public places like hospital, Railway station, Bus stop, Metro and other government and private offices etc. In a similar way, we forget our keys in restaurants, shops, temple, mosque etc. Many items like wallet , mark sheet , health report , gadgets , bag are also lost by us in our fast moving life. 

Once we forget our item then It becomes very hard for us to find our item. For example, you are going from one place to another and your home key fell down from your pocket or from your hand. Now you return to your home and your key is missing. Now you are unable to enter your house. You went back to the same place to find your lost key but you are unable to find anywhere. But wait for the key which is missing from your side found by a stranger on road. It is your home key and stranger realize how important this key is for you. But it is impossible for a stranger to return your key because an item like key can never talk to us. But the stranger is a nice man and he wants to return your item but there is no way of communication to talk to the owner of the lost key.

In a similar way, most of the people forget their document, mark sheet, mobile, wallet, report, gadgets etc and the person who find that item unable to identify the real owner of the item or to give the item to the owner because there was no way of communication for this.

Now there is a new medium BackMyItem to report that item. This is a web application which is hosted recently. BackMyItem is a web application which provides the communication between the owner who lost the item and an angel who find your item and want to return back.

We know that items like passport, atm card, pan card, reports, mark sheet are very valuable to us. So it is our moral duty that if you find any unclaimed stuff at public places, road, restaurant etc then report that item on BackMyItem platform. Because this document may be useless for you but it is the life savior of the owner. It will not give you anything but we definitely sure that you will be the reason of the happiness if you return other people stuff for the rest of their life.
