Hyderabad: “Bye nanna (bye daddy),” were the last words Rachith spoke to his father, Nama Anil Kumar, after he dropped him at the school on Tuesday morning. Mr Anil, who is into catering businesses, said that he put his child in this institution thinking that it was the best in the area and was also close to home.
As many of Rachith’s friends were studying in Bachpan, Mr Anil also wanted his child to study with them, this was another reason for Anil to choose this school.
“Though he is two-and-a-half-years old now, he could not develop speech. So we thought he could mingle with other kids and become active and improve his speaking skills,” said Mr Anil.
He recollected how his family went for shopping on Monday night to purchase a new dress for their elder daughter, who is celebrating her birthday on coming Sunday.
“More than me and my wife, my daughter is attached to Rachith. I do not know how to tell her the truth. She is not aware that her loving brother has left us,” he added. Seven-year-old Ananya is studying in a private school.
“Though Mr Anil’s financial condition did not support, just for the love of his son, he purchased a new car on installment,” said a relative. He had sold his earlier car due to cash crisis.
