A promising life cut short by brutal act Education was his passion and he excelled in it. Gunta Tirupati, who died in the twin bomb blasts at Dilsukhnagar on February 21, wanted to become a Group-II service officer. He had been studying hard to achieve his goal and he was a source of inspiration for his friends too. Tirupati's father Gunta Bhimaiah is a worker in Singareni Collieries at Godavari Khani and mother Rajamma is house wife. Tirupati is their second son. The elder son and elder daughter got married and the younger daughter is studying medicine.Since childhood, Tiriupati evinced a keen interest in studies. Up to 10th class he studied in the government school and completed graduation at the Government Degree College at Godavari Khani since his father was working there. Later, he studied MBA in Kakatiya University at Warangal. He was active as an NCC cadet too. Tirupati shifted his base to Hyderabad in search of employment and sharing accommodation with his friends. Amruta Ravi Kumar, Banoth Ramesh, he appeared for the Group Two examination. Along with his friends, he came to Dilsukhnagar after learning that the key to the group two exam was released. But it had become a bane to his life. Suddenly the bomb exploded and before he knew what happened he fell on earth with grievous injuries. He tried to talk but could not. Tirupati died on the spot. His parents never imagined that their dear son would return home wrapped in a white cloth. Tirupati wanted his younger sister to become a doctor. "My brother told me to study MBBS and if it was not possible I should become a veterinary doctor," his sister Mounika said. Tirupati was inspirational to many a youth in the village. His friends emulated him and studied hard, one his friends Sanjiv said. The college staff and students where he studied graduation paid rich tributes to Tirupati. Now, Mounika is afraid of returning to Hyderabad to complete the MBBS course. The youth of the village feel that there is no safety for their lives in the concrete jungle of Hyderabad.Though the government had announced ex gratia to the kin of the deceased, it would not bring back the family member.
