Balantrapu Venkata Rao Garu - Poetry Recitation

Venkata Parvateeswara Kavulu made their indelible mark on the literary fields of Telugu.
Their poetry was path breaking.
Ekantaseva is a legend in Telugu poetry.

It is interesting to note that they have even translated novels.
I am reading their Telugu version of Tagore's Gora!

Late Sri Shashanka (Poet and Lyricist) and later his son  Parvateesham (DD Hyderabad) continued the tradition of  Sri Voleti Parvateesam Garu..
Balantrapu Rajanikanta Rao and Nalinikanta Rao represent Sri Venkata Rao garu.
All of them are great in their own right!

Rajani perhaps epitomises the values for the late Duo represented.

Here I have a surprise for lovers of classical poetry.
Listen to late Sri Balantrapu Venkata Rao garu recite his poetry.
I thank Krishna and Prabhakar for sharing this recording.
