Prof. N. Gopi

Gopi is a friend for long.
His place Bhongir was the connection then.
I worked at that place for a short period.
The Telugu language is the second link.

His research on Vemana made him a famous man.
His poetry went place from place.
He became Dr Gopi.
Then he became Prof Gopi.
Then he became the Vice Chancellor of the Telugu Unversity.
Interestingly, Gopi remained what he was!
A Friend!

This book, a volume published on the occassion of his Sixtieth birthday, is a fine tribute to my friend.
There are articles by many frinds there.
I partcularly like the piece by a common friend, Prof. Kishan Rao.
It is really touching.

I thought I salute my friend by bringing the piece to my blog page.
Intrestingly Mrs Aruna, Gopi's wife, was featured in my blog earlier.
She is a fine poet too!

Let us enjoy some good books!
