Delayed offer letter ushers software Engineer to death

Delayed offer letter ushers software Engineer to death - Sakshi Post

In the tragic bus accident, in which 44 passengers were burnt alive, near Palem in Kottakota mandal of Mahabubnagar district, the tale of a victim Adaru Ravi (27) -a software Engineer,  was strange. The ill-fated Ravi boarded the Volvo bus in Bangalore at the eleventh hour. If he had received the offer letter from KT&T on Tuesday, he would have not boarded the bus.

"He was selected by both Accenture and also KT &T. He was ambivalent to choose between the two, as he had been working in Bengaluru. In fact, I also advised him to select for Accenture, a bigger multinational company, with higher reputation,' K Leela Siva Prasad, a bereaved friend of Ravi, told the Sakshipost.
According to him, Ravi, native of Vizianagaram, was their classmate and roommate too in Macharla, when they were in Newton Engineering College of 2003- 2007 batch. After finishing his B Tech with ECE discipline, he went to Benguluru, in search of employment. He had a brother, two years elder to him and a younger sister.
Elder brother runs an Internet centre at their hometown. Since the family recently decided to get the only sister married soon, Ravi determined to be a major support to the family financially. It prompted him for a monetary elevation in profession. Accordingly, he succeeded in getting through important interviews recently and two major companies, KT & T in Bengaluru, US based Accenture in Hyderabad offered him the job.
"In fact, the salary package in Accenture was lesser to that of KT & T. Since Accenture was more reputed, he selected it. He was looking for KT &T offer letter, if he had got it, he would have changed his mind to stay back in Bengaluru, as he had been there for years. " wailing Prasad said. The last call from Ravi was at late hours last night after boarding the fatal bus, he added.
