   the vaidic scholars. it was claimed in that article narayana bhattu was
   a scholar of kannada and his main job was to help nannayya in the study
   and comparison of pampa bharatam to his own version.

Nori Narasimha Sastry wrote a series of novels on puraana kavulu. The one
dealing with Nannaya is called 'Narayana Bhattu'. If you brush aside 
historical authenticity it makes a very interesting reading. He touches
on Adharvanacharya, Pavuluri Mallana, Vemulavada Bheema Kavi in that novel.
He also touched on the tension between Buddhism and and Vaidika Dharma. 

Other novels by Narasimha Sastry
	Rudrama Devi	---> on Kakatiyalu and Tikkana
	Malla Reddy	---> on Errana
	Kavi Dvayam	---> on Srinatha and Potana
	Dhurjati	---> on Dhurjati
