PS:

        vaaDraevu cina veerabhadrudu wrote that rare thing:
        A PEOM. 
        
        No wonder. I am jealous of him!!

        I never enjoyed wandering on the cityroads.
        But after reading this poem, I went on leave
        for two days just to spend my time on the streets.

        VaaDraevu has turned poetry from magazine-pages
        to our receptacles of experience.

        This poem, in terms of its literary achievements, is
        next only to SriSri's Kavitaa O Kavitaa.

        We haven't read, either before or since srisri,
        a poem as moving as this verse-couple.

        srisri paTTukunnaDu #poem#ni.
        digambara kavulu mottangaa kalisi manaki
        #poem# anTae aenToe caeppaeru. aa taravaata
        okka vaaDraevu cina veerabhadruDikae aa rahasyam ardhamayindi.

        kavitvam caDavaDam oka #Routine# ayindi manaki.
        pancaangam tippaDam, #files# nimpaDam, raajakeeyaalu
        maaTlaaDaDam, peLLiLLu caesukoe pillalni kanaDam.....

        kavitvam raayaDam #duty# anukunTunnaru kavulu.
