Things get significant on the basis of one’s use but it becomes precious when someone owns it by family inheritance. Irrespective of being a celebrity or common people, losing something that carries family memories is enough reason to give them a nightmare. Losing things like that on a journey in the airlines is a total mess. There are many incidents where lost things and luggages may not found again and many exception as well. You may relate to many stories like that around.

A loss is real for those who went through it. We can only wish that the cricketer finds his lost watch anyway.
