She died on her way home to discuss wedding TCS Staffer Killed In Train Blast

Chennai/Guntur:Last year, Swathi Paruchuri landed her dream job as assistant systems engineer in TCS, Bangalore. In a couple of months, the 24-year-old from Guntur in Andhra Pradesh was getting married to a close friend. On Thursday morning, she died in the twin bomb blasts that rocked the Bangalore-Guwahati Express in Chennai central station. 

    Swathi wasn't even meant to be on the train—or in the berth. She procured a tatkal ticket at the last minute and then swapped her berth with another passenger so that she could sleep on a berth next to her friend and coleague Rajitha, who was also on the train. Swathi died, Rajitha survived. 
    Swathi's mother Kamakshi Devi fell unconscious after hearing the tragic news at their Guntur home. Sources said Swathi had initially tried to book a ticket in Prasanthi Express, which is a direct train from Bangalore to Guntur, and was looking forward to meeting her parents after four months. 
    But in a last-minute change of plan, she took Guwahati Express though it does not go to Guntur. She had planned to get down in Vijayawada and take a bus to her hometown. 
    According to her friends, Swathi was planning to sett
le down and was heading home to discuss her marriage. "She was really excited about this trip," said a friend from Sai PG Centre in east Bangalore where she lived.
