Born and brought up in a village called Damaramadugu in Nellore district,
AP state, India. Worked as a BEd Teacher
at ZP Boys High School BuchiReddyPalem, Kavali, Bramhanakraka and in several High Schools in Nellore district.
As an Artist
He was a great artist and inspiration to me. He used to draw and paint in his leisure time. Won first prize for his Indian Ink sketch of
American President Abraham Lincoln in a state-wide competition held in Nellore
when he was doing BA at VR College, Nellore, India. Also his
drawing of Rama and Sita that he drew when he was doing B.Ed at Vijaya Teacher's college, Bangalore impressed
everyone with no exception of his college Principal who later announced to publish the drawing in the first page of the College Souvenir every year.
Later, I copied the same painting in 1993 and with a little modification made it to look like
Radha and Krishna.
Here is another master piece from his hand - Swamy Vivekananda
which he drew in Chirala when we went to our Grandma's place for Summer vacations in 1973. Here are the two pictures of
Lord Rama with water colors and color pencils drawn on a wall when he was about 14 years old.
They are still being preserved by his brother on the wall in the house where he was born and brought up.
He was a born Artist and used to Draw/Paint in his own Photographic style. Probably, I inherited his Drawing style too. We lost many of his works.
I am proud to display some of his works in the gallery dedicated to him.
I have displayed only the ones that we could preserve. My Father was the first Artist that I had known. He was also the first person to inspire me in my childhood and created love towards Arts.

As an Artiste

when he was working as a Teacher.

As a Father
He was a great person and remains an inspiring personality in every moment of my life. But, God wouldn't let great people to do what they desire to do in
this world - took my father away from us in 1979 when he was very young.
