Poetic Eccentricity on Rivers (Songs and Commentary)

Being a poet is essentially being eccentric. Our innate desire to be eccentric makes us appreciate strange metaphors in poems and songs. A Telugu euphemism for poetic eccentricity is ‘bhaavukatha.’ If it were up to a person with no romantic touch, he/she would call this eccentricity ‘paithyam.’ About three years ago I guest hosted a few ‘paatalapallaki‘ shows on TeluguOne Radio. The following playlist belongs to one of those shows, and my commentary was meant to bridge songs on “Rivers.”

If you can’t bear listening to my ‘paithyam,’ on their ‘paithyam‘ just skip my voice bits and listen to the songs only. They are good songs. [Sorry, I could not make this a downloadable podcast because of problems with rights for songs.]


  1. Just don’t want the songs to be downloaded. I don’t want any trouble.

  2. Super Sir, wondering why this is not in Podcasts section?
