It is more or less considered that the city of Guntur forms part of the capital region of Andhra Pradesh given its proximity to Vijayawada. With this, different research is being done to add value to the place and right now, one post is circulating strongly on Facebook which talks about Guntur and its credentials.
The most interesting among them happens to be Guntur’s link with the infamous Titanic tragedy. It was on April 10, 1912 the dreamliner cruise sank and hundreds lost their lives. But according to this post, there was one family that survived in this disaster and that family hailed from Guntur.
Well, it was the family of Allen Oliver Becker which travelled all the way from Guntur to London to be part of the Titanic voyage. His children Marion Louise, Ruth Elizabeth and Richard were born in Guntur at the Mission Hospital, as per historians. Isn’t this an interesting connection?
