Adari Ravi was just like any other software engineer. He wanted to work in a bigger company, provide a better life for his parents and buy a house in Hyderabad before getting married. But fate had other plans. Just a day before he joined his dream job in Hyderabad, the 25-year-old techie from Narsipatnam town of Visakhapatnam district died in the bus accident near Palem in Kothakota mandal of Mahbubnagar district on Wednesday.
Ravi, who earlier worked in a software firm in Bangalore, was travelling to Hyderabad to join a multinational company there.
“He had two job offers — one in Bangalore and another in Hyderabad. As he wanted to be closer to home, I persuaded him to take the job in Hyderabad though the pay package at the Bangalore-based company was high. I was going to receive him in the city on Wednesday but even before I started off, I saw the news flashing on the channels,” Ravi’s close friend K Leela Siva Prasad told Express.
Ravi’s brother Adari Ganesh lamented, “Ravi was elated at the job offer when he spoke to us on Tuesday. He was coming closer to home and was excited that he would be able to fulfil his dreams through his new job. We have not only lost the highest earning member of the family, but also the joy in our lives.”
On Tuesday, Ravi had promised his parents that he would visit them for Sankranti and call them the next day after joining his new company. But the news that the telephone call brought has left the family shattered.
Ravi’s father Krishna and two other relatives left for Hyderabad to identify the charred remains of the deceased which would be brought to Narsipatnam for cremation.
