I am B.V. RAO, male, aged 56 years. This blog is my diary of random thoughts on history, culture and literature of people of Andhra Pradesh, India. That is where I belong and so generally, I am interested in these subjects. I must admit that apart from occasional readings from books and periodicals I happen to lay my hands on, I have no specialized knowledge in these subjects. The posts on these subjects may at places reflect my limited knowledge on these subjects and hence are for casual reading only and not in any way intended to be treated as authoritative material nor suitable for specialized reading.
Due credits have been given for references made to the material of other learned elders and well-known personalities. My sincere apologies for unintentional omissions and commissions, if any, noticed, which will be corrected. Likewise, due care has been taken to present the historical facts correctly. My sincere apologies for unintentional errors, if any, noticed, which will be corrected.
Here and there, for variety, there will be some posts of my poetry in English, as well.
