      terachi raaju is a term from chess, the Telugu equivalent of
'discovered check', when the opposing king is attacked not by the piece
that is being moved, but by another piece whose ability to attack the king
is felicitated (i.e., the attack line is opened or discovered) by the
movement of the first piece. 

	Question: Isn't there a viSwanaatha novel with the title 'terachi
raaju'?
