Annamacharya - 1

A two-part feature on the pada-kavi pitamaha, Annamacharya.

Annamacharya was born in 1424 in the village of Tallapaka in Andhra Pradesh. As the legend goes, at the age of 16, he had a vision of Lord Venkateswara which prompted him to write about 32,000 kirtanas and padams in praise of Lord Venkateswara and his consort Alamelu Manga. This programme features his life story and compositions, presented by Dr Pappu Venugopal Rao. This is Part One of a two-part feature.
