Famous Telugu lyricist, poet, orator, and movie director Sri Jonnavittula Ramalingeswara Rao garu rarely gives interviews. I had the good fortune of interviewing him not once, but twice for TORi audience. The first of the two interviews took place in Nov 2008.
In this part 1 of the interview, Sri Jonnavittula shared his experiments with lyrics for such songs as 1) Sanskrit disco, 2) thitla dandakam, and 3) Rupee dandakam. We had a light hearted discussion about the sensational hit song: jinthaka thika thika jinthaka tha (Vikramarkudu).
This is a must listen interview.
