This is a belated reply to this topic since I was hoping to find some
relevant material.

I remember reading perhaps in one of the tributes that G said to someone
that if God could give him sometime he would try and complete the Gita. So
it would appear that G was lucky to complete the poject, undoubtedly the
greatest achievement of his career.

Someone could confirm/refute this. G never really was alive to see the
formal launch of the Gita volumes. Those days it was two LPs. My
recollection is that NTR released it in a formal occasion in Vijayawada,
some 10 months after his death.

Best wishes
