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).

  23. Visionary Poet of the Millennium
    An Indian poet Prophet

    Seshendra Sharma
    October 20th, 1927 - May 30th, 2007
    http://seshendrasharma.weebly.com/
    Seshendra Sharma is one of the most outstanding minds of modern Asia. He is the foremost of the Telugu poets today who has turned poetry to the gigantic strides of human history and embellished literature with the thrills and triumphs of the 20th century. A revolutionary poet who spurned the pedestrian and pedantic poetry equally, a brilliant critic and a scholar of Sanskrit, this versatile poet has breathed a new vision of modernity to his vernacular. Such minds place Telugu on the world map of intellectualism. Readers conversant with names like Paul Valery, Gauguin, and Dag Hammarskjold will have to add the name of Seshendra Sharma the writer from India to that dynasty of intellectuals .

    Rivers and poets
    Are veins and arteries
    Of a country.
    Rivers flow like poems
    For animals, for birds
    And for human beings-
    The dreams that rivers dream
    Bear fruit in the fields
    The dreams that poets dream
    Bear fruit in the people-
    * * * * * *
    The sunshine of my thought fell on the word
    And its long shadow fell upon the century
    Sun was playing with the early morning flowers
    Time was frightened at the sight of the martyr-
    - Seshendra Sharma
    Parents: G.Subrahmanyam (Father) , Ammayamma (Mother)
    Siblings: Anasuya,Devasena (Sisters),Rajasekharam(Younger brother)
    Wife: Mrs.Janaki Sharma
    Children: Vasundhara , Revathi (Daughters),
    Vanamaali , Saatyaki (Sons)

    Seshendra is a colossus of Modern Indian poetry.
    His literature is a unique blend of the best of poetry and poetics.
    Diversity and depth of his literary interests and his works
    are perhaps hitherto unknown in Indian literature.
    From poetry to poetics, from Mantra Sastra to Marxist Politics his writings bear an unnerving pprint of his rare genius.
    His scholar ship and command over Sanskrit , English and Telugu Languages has facilitated his emergence as a towering personality of comparative literature in the 20th century world literature.
    T.S.Eliot , Archbald Macleish and Seshendra Sharma are trinity of world poetry and Poetics.
    His sense of dedication to the genre of art he chooses to express himself and
    the determination to reach the depths of subject he undertakes to explore
    place him in the galaxy of world poets / world intellectuals.
