Devulapalli Venkata Krishnasastry

'
Devulapalli Venkata Krishnasastri (1 November 1897 – 24 February 1980) was a Telugu poet, playwright and translator.[1] He is known as Andhra Shelley, born in Ravuvari Chandrampalem, East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh, India. was brought up in Pithapuram in a family of court-poets. He grew interest in English literature while he was in his high school. ------------ Career : ------------ Krishnasastry started writing poetry from a very young age. His works changed significantly after he met Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore at Santiniketan in 1929. Krishnasastry joined All India Radio in 1945 and wrote a number of plays for it. He also translated Sri Goda Devi Tamil Tiruppavai into Telugu Keerthanalu. Other translations of Tiruppavai are available - but they are all word for word. His translation is unique because he had taken the central idea of each Pasuram, made it into pallavi and wove around it the rest of the paasuram into anupallavi and charanam(s). They were set to pure carnatic music, even as they were composed, by Amruthavalli Sundaram. The publication with notation, is Orient Longman. ---------------------- Literary works : ---------------------- Amrutha Veena (1992) Appudu Putti Vunte Aruna Ratham Badarika Bahukaala Darshanam Dhanurdasu Gorinta Mangala Kahali Sri Vidyapathi Krishnapaksham - Urvashi pravasam Sharmishta Vyaasavali - Kavi parampara Sri Andallu Tiruppavu Kirtanalu (1993) Meghamala (1996) Krishna Paksham (The Darkening Fortnight), Pravasam (Alien Residence), Mahati (The Veena of Narada), Urvasi. ---------- Films : ---------- Dr. Devulapalli Venkata Krishna Sastry, who established himself as Andhra-Shelly, came to the lime-light in the Telugu filmdom too - thanks to the story and lyrics he provided to the all-time Telugu classical hit "Malleeswari".
