Mancherial: Social media platforms are often blamed for contributing to marital discords and breaking relationships between boys and girls. However, they do help family members reunite, after their separation, even after a long time, as it it happened in this case.
The popular social networking site Facebook helped three siblings reunite, believe it or not, after a gap of 27 years. Adepu Satheesh managed to meet his elder brothers Laxman and Guruvaiah after he identified one of them on Facebook. He and his eldest brother Guruvaiah finally had a reunion with their sibling Laxman at Namnur village in Hajipur mandal on Friday.
The story goes like this. Adepu Shankaraiah and his wife Shankaramma of Namnur had three sons Guruvaiah, Laxman and Satheesh and a daughter Ramya. The couple died in 1994. Later their children were orphaned and their relatives had to take care of them. The relatives chose to live in different parts of the State over a period of time.
Eldest among the siblings, Guruvaiah had to leave his relatives as he was unable to bear their harassment and worked as a chef in Warangal and Hanmakonda. He settled in Husnabad town and his two brothers Laxman and Satheesh were sheltered at their relatives in Namnur. Satheesh later became a software engineer and settled in Hyderabad.
Satheesh began searching for his eldest brother on the social networking site by searching the surname. To his amazement, he spotted Guruvaiah’s profile and later confirmed that it was his sibling who went missing more than 20 years ago. He contacted Guruvaiah over the phone and confirmed that it was his eldest brother.
A festive mood prevailed as the software engineer, the two brothers and their sister met at their native place, reliving childhood accounts and exchanging pleasantries. “We are elated to reunite after a gap of 27 years. The credit goes to Facebook. We will be thankful to the site for helping us in connecting to our sibling after a quite long time,” Satheesh told ‘Telangana Today.’
