Birthday wishes from father and mother: death news of only son in next hour


KOLLAM: After talking to their son for an hour on the phone and wishing him a happy birthday, what the parents heard in the next hour was the news of their only son's death.

Dr. Advaith, who died in a car accident at Gothuruth Lake, is the only son of Karunagapally GHSS Higher Secondary School Retired Principal Mangala Bhanu and Kotamkulangara VHSS Retired Clerk K Supriya.

Advaith lost his life last night while going to work in Kodungallur by checking Google Maps after his birthday celebration when the car he was travelling in went astray and fell into Gothuruth Lake, where a boat race was set.

Yesterday was Advaith's 28th birthday. The accident happened when he was returning from Kochi after celebrating his birthday with his work friends. Despite his busy schedule, Advaith always found time to talk to his parents for a while. The parents had called Advaith to wish him on his birthday the previous day and the three of them had talked for an hour more than usual. The accident happened within hours after that.

Advait's sudden demise came amid final preparations to go to Britain for further studies. Advaith passed MBBS from Palakkad Karuna Medical College four years ago. Then after house surgery, he served in NS Cooperative Hospital Palathara and Kottiyam Holy Cross Hospital. He started working at Craft Hospital in Kodungallur four months ago.

The body will be placed for public viewing at his home in Palathara Bodhinagar this morning and will be cremated at his mother's family home in Chavara at 11.30 am.
