HYDERABAD: Days after a distressed father approached IT Minister KT Rama Rao and Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj to find his son who had been untraceable in the United States for seven months, the son called up his father to say that he was fine.

P Raghavendra Rao, a software engineer who had gone to California to work at Microsoft, was thought to be missing when he stopped contacting his parents in India since October last year.

Speaking about his son’s call. Bangaram said, “When I asked him the reasons for not calling me, he said that he was in a state of mental agony as he hadn’t disclosed to us that he had married a Hyderabadi woman working in California five years ago and had two children with her. He had slipped into depression and had also lost his job, and hence did not want to contact us.”

“He has however assured us that he will be in touch regularly and that he will come back regularly to meet us as soon,” he said.
