What paper trail?
Saroo Brierley: My mum could not read or write.
Dinner Guests: What did she do?
Saroo Brierley: A labourer... she carried rocks.
In the first scene with the orange soda, Saroo takes one small sip then hands the nearly full bottle to the woman. She takes a small sip and puts the bottle down, nearly empty. The next cut shows her taking a second sip and the bottle is nearly full again.
