I was born and brought-up in
Chikkadpally, Hyderabad. I attended Peoples Primary School, Madpati Girl's High
School, Nampally Women's College and Reddy Women's College in Hyderabad. I did
my Bachelors in Science in 1987 and was married the same year to Shri SDP
My husband is Deputy General Manager in
NABARD. Thanks to his job we had an opportunity to move around the country. We
stayed at Bombay, Bhubaneswar, Bhopal & Vizianagaram. Presently we are at Mumbai.
We have one child, who is a naval
architect from IIT, Kharagpur and is presently pursuing his PhD at Texas
A&M University. My In-laws stay at Vijayawada and my Mom at Hyderabad.
While my elder Sister-in-law is at Tenali with her family and works for SBI, my younger
Sister-in-law with her family is at Hyderabad and is with All India Radio. My Brother with his
family is in USA.
I am (???) with State Bank of India. While at Bhopal, I sought a transfer to the place of
my husband's posting i.e Vizianagarm in 2006. A few chaps in SBI
administration at Bhopal felt that my inter circle request was unreasonable. Though there was enough
scope for the bank to relocate me against the vacancies arising due to promotions
and retirements, these fellows in connivance with a few rogues in SBI Union wanted to teach me a lesson. The reason was as simple. I questioned their transparency and didn't bolster their false egos. I insisted that they should honestly discharge their function for which they are being paid by the bank. Citing official exigencies they kept my
transfer application under perpetual cold storage, while I preferred to join my husband and insisted for my transfer. I
was forcibly removed from service in 2011 under
"Voluntary vaction of Service". These cowards fudged records too!! I approached Jabalpur High-court with these details and filed a writ petition for my fundamental rights violation. The writ is admitted and hearings are in progress.
movies, classical Carnatic
music, book reading and net-surfing. I enjoy film making & editing. I
all our albums at home and made them into thematic movies. Being from
middle class and with traditional back-ground, joining cinema industry
to realize my editing passion was impossible. Having spare time now, I utilize it for developing www.gayatrivantillu.com recipe videos. Having been benefited a lot by
Internet, there is an urge to pay-back to the community through Internet for which I have chosen to work on www.gayatrivantillu.com and keep it free

Congratulations. God bless you keeping up your spirits always
high. Your site is very useful to all. You have made best use of the
time off the work thanks to inhuman approach of the SBI hierarchy.
is another lady here with three daughters in school/college who was
given tranfer orders in the evening to join the new station next
morning. She did not oblige them and now fighting like you.
am also running a one-man show here in the IICD. But yet to develop a
site. This discipline "COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT" is not taught in any
college/university in India and none offers a degree in it.
My son who is in California sent me your web address.
Wishing you all success in your good socially useful work.
