American mother visits her Facebook Indian son’s wedding


Gorakhpur: It is said a mother’s love knows no boundary and now a 60-year-old American woman has proved it.

Deb Miller, a native of California recently surprised her ‘Facebook son’, Krishna Mohan Tripathi, when she visited his wedding ceremony held in the city.

28-year-old Krishna had hit upon Deb’s profile, while he was casually browsing through Facebook profiles. They had slowly bonded with each other emotionally.

Krishna had lost his mother when he was a teenager and Deb does not have her own children. As their relationship matured, they forged a strong mother-son connection. Deb says: “I do not have children and when I interacted with Krishna, I felt God had fulfilled my wishes. He is a very nice person and I pray to god that all his wishes come true.”

Krishna said that he was quite surprised when he had received a call from Deb on January 20, informing him that she had landed in Delhi and was on her way to Gorakhpur.

Deb, not only participated in the wedding, she also gifted Krishna jewelry worth 25 lakhs and a 125-year-old ring she had purchased in Britain.

Krishna, who is currently pursuing MSc from Awadh University in Faizabad and his newly wedded wife Neha have plans to visit in the US after a few days. (Photo: India Today)
