A 22-year-old man from Vishakapatnam was reunited with his mother in Delhi after 15 years with the help of social networking site, Facebook, and a women's rehabilitation centre that step up and took action when Rama Devi, who had lost her memory, remembered her son's name.
Rama Devi who became emotional after meeting her son said, "You have become so big."
"I always believed I would find my mother one day. I tried but couldn't find a way, but now I have. I am very happy; we will party. All young people use Facebook these days. I am also one of them," said Mr Choudhury, who was accompanied by his father.
In 2005, when her son Mitrajeet Choudhury was just seven years old, Rama Devi left her marital home in Kolkata after a fight with her husband.
