Welcome to my website.

Here I offer perspectives on a wide range of topics - politics, economy, current affairs and life in general.

బట్టలు ఇలా కొనుక్కునేవాళ్ళం!

There were hardly any ready made garments in our childhood. They were viewed with suspicion. We used to go to cloth store, buy cloth and get our clothes stitched. This is a narration of the elaborate process of making our clothes for festivals and birthdays.

Face to Face with Parakala

I’m wondering why you want this kind of a talk? I used to think that if someone spoke like this people tolerate it out of decency. But you seem to be asking for it. Anyway, you must be having your own reasons for it. Perhaps you like it. Perhaps you want to help me unravel my mind to myself, help me discover myself. You know, I often want to put an end to some uncomfortable lines of thinking by simply dismissing them with a single line: but what’s the point?

ధర్మవరపు సుబ్రహ్మణ్యం గారితో

ధర్మవరపు గారితో నా పరిచయం, స్నేహం సుమారు రెండు దశాబ్దాల నాటివి. అంతటి స్నేహశీలి, సంస్కారవంతుడు నాకు మిత్రుడవడం నా భాగ్యం. జీవితాన్ని అమితం గా ప్రేమించిఇన వ్యక్తి. మంచి భోజనం, చక్కటి సంభాషణ, దూర ప్రాంతాలకు ప్రయాణాలు, సంగీతం, సాహిత్యం, ఇవన్నీ ఎంతగానో రసించి ఆస్వాదించిన వ్యక్తి. ఎన్ని పద్యాలు నోటికి వచ్చో ఆయనకు. మృదువైన హాస్యం అందించగలరు, ఎదుటి వారి నుంచి అందుకోగలరు.
