Warangal Urban: Friends and fellow scholars of a PhD scholar, Department of English, Kakatiya University (KU), have started raising funds to help latter’s wife and children as he died of a heart attack on September 26.
Palle Eshwara Murthy (43), who did his PhD under the supervision of Dr B Krishnaiah on “Women, Family and Society in the Fiction of Rohinton Mistry”, was scheduled to attend viva voce on Saturday (October 3).
Speaking to ‘Telangana Today’, a contract lecturer of KU said Eshwara Murthy is survived by wife and two daughters. “The poverty-stricken bereaved family is on the roads with empty hands.
