	The film, manchi mitrulu, was much earlier than 1973. I would 
venture to say that it is late 68 or early 69. I think that the film was 
released ahead of Ekaveera which was in late 1969.

	I do not know the order in which the songs were recorded. But, my 
memory is that 'inkaa telavaaradEmi' was released ahead of 'prati 
raatri'. I was in high school when I heard the former, and in college 
when I heard the latter.
