My Dear Suryabhaskar garu -
Thanks a lot for sending me the
book, which you are so pains
takingly bringing out so well I am
happier to see the way you are
highlighting the art, you being an
expert in that. I do not see, any
artist doing so great a service as
you are doing to your fellow artists.
Congratulations and many many
thanks for that.

To my surprise I have found my
poetry (Is it a poetry???) being
translated so well and being
included in this. It gives a lot of
relief and happiness if someone
without any motive and being
pursued does something for us
without asking. Thanks so much
for that.

The detailed exposition on my

Sri Reddy is a very senior Artist of

added glory to the issue.

“before moving on to other routine work,
I felt it is important to write a few sentences when
my memories and views are fresh…
The Articles Liked by Somayya

Somayya Ku Nacchina Vyasalu,
Vaadrevu Chinaveerabhadrudu,
Sri Prachurana, Dec 2012.
pp 1-476 Rs. 250/-



When I received the copy of a 476 page volume
containing essays, titled very unusually as “ Sommaiah
ku Nacchina Vyasalu” (The Articles Liked by Somayya)
from Shri Veerabhadrudu garu, I felt a bit intimidated.
At the first instance, as I browsed through the pages, it
appeared that there are numerous short essays on
different topics. And I thought I can read them at my
own leisure; but that was not the case to be. This book
compelled me to read at a stretch (of course
interspersed with my official duties) in a period of about
four days! As turned pages,




I became more curious as to what the author would be
telling us in his next essay!
Before moving on to discuss about this book, let me
give one clarification here. Why am I introducing a
Telugu book in English? I felt it is important to share my
appreciation and critical appraisal of a literary traveler
(or a nomad) who chronicled discourses on Telugu
literature, art forms, people and society - with wider
non-Telugu speaking audience (and for those who
transcended from Telugu lands and became global
citizen/netizen).









During the past few years I read
few writings of Veerabhadrudu
garu. They ranged from
compilation of his pieces on
literary criticism, poetry,
travelogues and views and
opinions on topics like education,
tribal development etc. Each of
those provided an opportunity to
understand the perspective and
views of the author. And each of













them brought me closer to the
author.

What this magnum opus gives a
reader is a glimpse into his multi-
faceted personality. There were
only few instances in my life,
when read any book with such a
concentration and curiosity than
this present volume. And before
moving on to other routine work, I
felt it is important to write a few













sentences on it when my memories
and views are fresh.

How can we describe or
understand a person, whose
writings spanning for a period of
12 years are presented before you.
These are short 2-4 page essays on
topics of contemporary relevance
written during the period 1999 to
2012. They appeared as
syndicated columns in various

The writer of the article, Choragudi opines that he felt
it is important to share his appreciation and critical appraisal
of a Literary Traveler, or a Nomad, who chronicled the discourses
on Telugu Literature, Art Forms, People and the Society – with
a wider non-telugu speaking audience, especially for those who
have transcended from Telugu lands and became global citizens…




Special Article on the celerity and the celebrity-writer Sri Vadrevu China Veerabhadrudu
CALL 1.4 : April, 2014

Telugu magazines like India
Today (Telugu) weekly, Navya
Weekly and several other reputed
Journals from Telugu. Few essays
are forewords written for books on
diverse subjects by other authors.

Beautifully arranged into seven
sections these essays touch
different dimensions of human life
and existence. My eyes moved
over those printed words rapidly
so also my thoughts and
interpretations of each word,
phrase and paragraph. Sometimes,
I felt the meaning is simple, yet it
is complex in its interpretation.
Such was the use of language and
expression of thought. I marveled
at the economy of words and space

(of course often it may have
constrained the author of
expansive thought process), and
the writing style and use of
medium demonstrates as if one
were witnessing a work of art on a
canvas!

In fact I told my wife as I was
reading these essays that through
these I may attempt to understand
the person, the author.

Is he an idealist, romanticist, or a
philosopher? Critical or social
commentator? Can we capture him
or bracket him into any one such
characterization?
To me Veerabhadrudu garu
represents a sort of ‘stream of
consciousness’ which unfolds,
responds and reflects through past,
present and the future. When we
read each essay, they compel us to
reflect on the deep sense of
idealism through the words of the
author; they compel the reader to
ignite those forgotten senses of
aesthetics, reminds of hopelessly
romantic younger days that most
of us cherished. They enable us to
build perspective on life, nature
and people around us.

These essays are diverse in terms
of topics that touch human life. It
is compilation of celebration of
human life and humanity. It can
be a simple event like a visit to a
tribal hamlet, on a contemporary
development discourse, on
classical music and musicians or a
tribute to post-modernist like
Derrida, or commentary on
Advaitha philosophy of Adi-
Shankara or a foreword to a book
on Veerashaiva (sharana) literature
- all these writings reflect the quest
for realization of inner meaning
for life. Looking through these
essays I could find a personality
that reflects, reads, and re-reads
and questions the self and its
relationship with the other.

In my view, at one level,
Veerabhadrudu garu is an essential
idealist and romanticist. But is that
all?
Glimpses of frustration, anxiety
and dissatisfaction over the
contemporary developments, be it
on the current development
paradigm, education of tribal
children, rat-race to achieve
success, meritocracy, all these
brings out the other side of the
person – that is deeply political.
But do we see him taking sides?
Well, his position as I can decipher
is that arts, literature and aesthetics
(and those who produce it) need to
transcend beyond divides and
demonstrate their supreme
qualities of disbursing happiness,
peace and tranquility. Does it
mean, is he a status-quo’ist? No.

His progressive thinking and
outlook is reflected in those essays
that deal with globalization,
secularism (Gujarat), issues related
to language, art, culture and
contemporary arts. Do we get to
understand the person and his
politics? Unfortunately that was
not to be. Why? To answer this,
we have to look into his exposition
on the Indian philosophical
traditions. To me he appears to be
taking the role of an enabler and
interpreter (of ancient philosophy
as well as contemporary
developments), leaving it to the
reader to make his or her own
judgment. Of course it does not
mean he has not expressed his
political views, they are in a way
mild criticism of neo-liberal
policies, but more interestingly he
has expressed his almost
contemptuous views on ‘ –isms’ of
any kind in some of the essays,
which perhaps sums up his role.
At the same time, role of
intellectuals comes for sharp
criticism as he feels they are not
doing sufficiently as change
agents.
CALL 1.4 : April, 2014






If one were to introduce the book,
it is a mammoth task. Nevertheless
I made an attempt, which may
satisfy the reader. Essays in the
section titled ‘Jeevitanandam’
bring the conflux of life that
balances itself experiencing
simultaneously sense of happiness
and anxiety. Exposition on
personalities like Sant
Gnaneshwar, Ramana Maharshi,
Sufi Saints, Sri Aurobindo, brings
us simple truths about life and
their relevance to contemporary
living. Selection of essays in this
section brings out the dilemmas
and conflicts that the human being
encounters and where perhaps one
gets solace. They indeed ignite
deeper reflections on ideas of
cohabitation, conservation, notions
of justice and balance in human
existence.
Moving on, the section ‘Jeevitha
Margadarsakulu’ brings us to a
kaleidoscopic narrative of people
that impact our humanity. They are
famous and also not so famous.
But what they bring to us - through
the author - are immense lessons
on human values, quest for peace,
love and humanity. The subjects
range from Telugu literary figures,
artists and others that he
encountered during the past ten
years. Moving and emotional
articulation of such encounters,
their discussions all of that makes
the reader envious of the great
fortunes that the almighty bestow
on such wonderful personalities.
So personal are those narrations,
one feels so humble and marvel at
the simplicity of such people who
touched our literary and social life
of Telugu lands.

The section titled ‘Jeevana Vidya’







brings out views of the author
expressed over a decade, on
contemporary development issues
like education, schooling,
teaching, teachers, our quest for
careerism, meritocracy,
knowledge, youth, intellectual
capital and globalization and its
impact etc. They are incisive
observations that reflect an
idealism that quests for change.

Further, few essays in the part
titled ‘Jeevita Mukha Chitram’
attempts to analyse the role of
literature – the simultaneity of its
power to ‘liberate’ as well as a
‘unifying’ force. Taking a swipe
at the contemporary literary
exercises (poetry especially and
short story to some extent) the
author advocates for modesty and
intensity in place of arrogance of
‘being’ and divisive. Unifying
elements of literature are also
invoked while discussing
Indianness (Bharateeyata) in our
literature. Is there an Indian
Literature? He sees a crisis in this
respect (with Indian English
writers gaining currency often at
the expense of other language
writers), and his position on this is
to resort to post modernist
formulations drawn from
comparative literature and he
introduces to us “literariness” as a
concept. For him, Indian
‘Literariness’ is one, but it can be
expressed in different forms.
These should include codified and
un-codified words and songs of
indigenous people, works from
marginalized groups, from
locations and perspectives that
reflect the diversity of the country
from economic, social and cultural
spheres.







His adoration for poets and
writers, literary critics flow from a
deep sense of introspection on
their role in society and how they
shaped minds and hearts of
millions. Lamentations on recent
trends in poetry and literary
criticism in some of the essays
reflect his sense of frustration in
declining standards of
craftsmanship.

CALL 1.4 : April, 2014






Reviewing works of great
personalities like Rumi, NamDev,
Tukaram, Avvayyar and Tagore,
the author brings quintessential
quest for truth, happiness and
freedom that all these great
masters strived through their
works. They represent celebration
of human consciousness all the
time.

Talking about Eastern forms of
literary practice viz., ‘Haiku’ and
their influence on Telugu litera-
ture, he identifies them as ‘counter
culture’ and a human perspective.
They reflect a zen-buddhist
philosophical approach to life.
They ask the reader to reflect
deeply; reach to a space of
uncontaminated human existence.

One interesting essay in this
section, a must read is to
understand Gandhi as a writer – as
a creator of literature and even as a
literary critic. How many of us
knew that Gandhi chaired Hindi
Literary Festival and Gujarati
Literary festival? Gandhi
visualized democratization of
literature and identifies its role as a
liberator.

The author’s position on works of
feminist literature to me appeared
to be very balanced. He
demonstrates curiosity and
genuine commitment to learn and
understand. While acknow-
ledging the potential of feminist
literature to meet the demands of
grassroots liberation, he identifies
the paucity (of literature) in
building feminist perspective.
Most of the writings hitherto are
confined to addressing oppression
and seeking liberation. The
reason for this situation is the
domination of patriarchal
perspective and structures in
methodologies and analysis
especially in the knowledge,
theories and research methods
which according to him hindered
progress towards feminist literary
perspective.

Commenting on the limitations of
literary criticism (as a discipline)
to accommodate the new forms of
expressions from feminist
literature, he identifies the need to
build a new idiom and even
vocabulary to eulogize literature
that celebrates women’s liberation
and feminist perspective. He
raises few interesting questions,
like as liberated women (out of the
clutches of patriarchy), how would
these women build perspective on
notions of truth, beauty, humanity
and language (that is not
oppressive!), sexuality and human
relations? What kind of
experiences that such women
encounter?














He opines that these are some of
the areas that need creative
exploration especially from
feminist literature.

Role of literature, writers and
artists in society comes under
sharp analysis in some of the
essays. While poverty and





deprivation formed subjects of
literary creations for long, how one
visualizes constructive role of
writers and poets in fostering unity
and sense of purpose for the
country becomes an agenda in
some of the essays. The context
is contemporary developments in
Indian society. For him,
upholding secular values, or
acknowledging identity politics
and moving beyond, building a
perspective on the ‘other’; sense of
resignation and dissolution
towards political systems all these
become mandate of writers and
poets to encounter. Bemoaning
the post-modernist trends, the
author identifies the need for using
creative expressions (poetry, story,
art forms) to build a sense of
purpose and perspective in human
existence. We do need to accept
diversity, but that should not put
breaks on progress and
development. Such formulation
brings to the fore the romantic and
idealist confronting the complex
21
st
century reality.

As I am half-way through the
volume (p.201 - 215), I questioned
myself, are we afraid of ideology?
Or more precisely, are people of
letters detest political or liberation
project? Or is it that their canvas is
so wide and large that they do not
like to be ‘tied’ to a particular
pathway? Some of these dilemmas
remain unsolved. I suppose the
quest continues as we move on.

Veerabhadru garu celebrates
humanity and its reflection in a
collection of essays on theater,
painting dance and music and on
luminaries of these crafts. Aptly
titled as ‘Jeevana Prathibimbam’
this section brings out his incisive
observations on contemporary
developments in painting as an art
One interesting essay in this book, a

even as a Literary Critic. How many of us

form, future of theater, status of
people’s art forms, the song (of
Lata Mangeshkar), beauty of Taj
Mahal, contemporary trends in
classical music (and its
appreciation) and philosophical
enquiry into classical music etc.
Each of these expositions brings
out intense emotional and creative
flow of appreciation that can only
come from an ideal romanticist.

Two essays in this section that
stopped me for a while to reflect
deeply (p.267 - 271) are, one,
review of the film ‘Sacrifice’ by
Andrie Tarkovsky and the other,
review of Bergman’s film ‘Wild
Strawberries’. Both of these
essays sum up in a way the
perspective of the author towards
humanity and ultimate liberation.
It is interesting aside to note; these
two essays were written in two
different time periods in history.
While the review of sacrifice was
written in 1996; essay on wild
strawberries belongs to 2009! He
sums up like this; Misfortune in
our life is not in our difficulties or
in pains; it’s just that difficulties or
happiness have not sunk into our
life! Unless experience is intense
and deep, we will not be able to
appreciate the inner meanings of
life.

Few essays on contemporary
social and political developments
move in a predictable way.











Titled as “jeevana
Sandharbham” (life context),
they encompass multi faceted
implications of globalization,
contemporary dilemmas on
knowledge and intelligence,
lamentations on democratic
practice and governance, HIV and
AIDS (a response to a critique!),
cricket as a symbol of nationhood,
cultural hegemony of western
powers, on violence, change
management, creativity in the era
of globalization, pluralistic society
and the need for globalization.








In this section, all of these writings
attempt to introduce to the reader
the need for a multi-faceted
analysis of issues that enables an
informed and balanced position.
To me these reflect the
contradictions and confluence of
philosophical approach to life and
the real politic. Underlying
universal theme and appeal of the
author is to engage with the
contemporary issues through an
approach of humanity and with
supreme human value viz,.
empathy.













What impressed me most is the
last section, which has been aptly
titled as Jeevitha Paramartham
(Bliss). It transcends from essay on
interpretation of Vedas ( Vedic
Hermeneutics), Adi Shankara’s
Advaitha, Buddhist philosophy,
Jainism in Telugu lands,
Christianity, roots of Hindu and
Muslim religious teachings,
egalitarianism advocated by the
Shaivism and Sharana literature,
comparative perspectives from
Buddha, Gandhi and Tagore,
socialist perspective of Acharya
Narendra Dev, contemporary
practice of Marxism, works of
Erich Fromm and Levi Strauss.
What amazed me while reading
these essays is that the author has
the ability to simplify the complex
formulations and democratize the
discourse which hitherto remained
in the realms of intellectuals and
scholars. To that extent, the author
has done a yeomen service to the
readers of Telugu magazines
where these essays appeared first
and of course those readers who
could lay their hands on this
volume. The prose is simple, yet
the content is dense. I think that
reflects the philosophical approach
that Shri Veerabhadrudu garu
takes in his life to lead on….

I feel it is a treat to read this
volume which gives everyone
what they want!

Avadhānaṃ ṃṃ ṃ is a literary performance popular
from the very ancient days in Telugu Literature.
Avadhānaṃ ṃṃ ṃ originated as a Sanskrit literary process and is revived by Telugu poets in
modern times. It involves the partial improvisation of poems using specific themes, meters,
forms, or words.

The true purpose of an Avadhanam event thus is the showcasing, through
entertainment, of superior mastery of cognitive capabilities - of observation, memory,
multitasking, task switching, retrieval, reasoning and creativity in multiple modes of
intelligence - literature, poetry, music, mathematical calculations, puzzle solving etc.
It requires immense memory power and tests a
person's capability of performing multiple tasks
simultaneously. All the tasks are memory
intensive and demand an in-depth knowledge of
literature, and prosody. The tasks vary from
making up a poem spontaneously to keeping a
count of a bell ringing at random. No external
memory aids are allowed while performing these
tasks except the person's mind.

Avadhānaṃ can
be considered as the ‘Attention Divided’
(clinical model of attention) as it is the highest
level of attention and it refers to the ability to
respond simultaneously to multiple tasks or
multiple task demands

Avadhāni refers to the individual who
performs the Avadhānaṃ; one of the
many individuals asking questions is
a Pṛucchaka or a Prashnika
(questioner). The first person to ask
the question is called "Pradhāna
Pṛucchaka" (s)he is the same as any
other Pṛcchaka, except that he asks
There are some types of Avadhanas.
the first question. The questions asked
are primarily literary in nature. The
Pṛucchakas can optionally place
additional constraints.

Though it is not
stated explicitly, conformation
to Chandas (poetic meter) is
mandatory. Avadhāni should answer
them in the form of a poem. The
Questions generally consist of a
description given in prose and the
avadhāni has to express it as a poem.
The additional restrictions placed by
the Pṛucchakas can be anything like
asking the avadhāni not to use a given
set of the alphabet in the entire poem
or to construct only a particular type
of poem etc.

There are many types of Avadhanas. The number of Pṛucchakas can be 8 (Aṣtāvadhānaṃ) or 100 (Śatāvadhānaṃ) or
even 1000 (sahasrāvadhānaṃ). A person who has successfully performed an Ashtavadhana is called as Aṣtāvadhāni, a
Śatāvadhānaṃ is called a Śatāvadhāni and a sahasrāvadhānaṃ is called Sahasrāvadhāni. The other lesser known forms of
Avadhana are Chitravadhanam (painting), Nrutyāvadhānaṃ (Dancing) and Gaṇitāvadhānaṃ (Mathematics).
Netrāvadhānaṃ (using the eyes) is another important form of avadhānaṃ
