According to the reports, YCH (The Yacht Club of Hyderabad) has inducted two economically backward students from the old city into the Indian Navy. The two students, Gowtham Kankatla, aged 21, and Erra Durga Prasad, aged 20, grew up in the slums of Rasoolpura and struggled in the early stages of their official training to become sailors. They completed their training in Odisha, and they received their first posting in Mumbai.


Prasad's dad works at a xerox shop, while his mom works at a motorbike showroom as a janitor. On the other hand, Gowtham's father succumbed in 2007 to liver cirrhosis, after which his mother worked odd jobs to look after the family.


His mother also said that her son joined the Yacht Club when he was just ten years old. So Gowtham's success has come as quite a pleasant surprise for her and the whole family.


His mom says she never agreed to his demand first because he was just a kid. Then, one day Gowtham came to her saying that he wanted to do adventurous stuff in the waters. They never expected that he would get through. But Gowtham surprised them all.


In 2016, Prasad successfully attempted to get enlisted for the junior fleet of the Navy. He made it to the senior fleet five years later, in 2021.
