Sri Sri

                   

Sri Sri was the first true modern Telugu poet to write about contemporary issues that affected day-to-day life of a common man in a style and metre which were not used in classical Telugu poetry.Today is his Birth Centenary, so I will upload the books written by him.

His book Maha Prasthanam (The Great Journey), the magnum opus is an anthology of poems. Some other major works of Sri Sri include Siprali, and Khadga Srushti ("Creation of the Sword").

He is also famous for his quotes. Some of them are:

"1930 daaka sahityam nannu nadipinchindi. aa tharvaatha nunchi daanni neaenu nadipisthunaanu." ("Till 1930, Telugu literature showed me the way. After that, I am showing it the way.")

"kastajeevi ki mundhu venuka undevaade kavi" (play of words: 'Ka'stajee'vi' means working class man, 'kavi' means poet, Srisri says, a poet is always at the beginning and the end of a working class man, he is giving a hint as to where he derives is inspiration)

"Telugu vadi jathiya gunam orvaleni thanam." (National feeling of the great Telugu nation - Jealousy).
