The Sage

Do you know the only family in India that has two postage stamps to its credit?
The Indira Gandhi family.
Mother and son.
Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi.
Are there any other families that can claim that uniqueness?
Yes, only one.
That is the Tripuraneni family.
Father and the son.
Tripuraneni Ramaswamy and Tripuraneni Gopichand.
OK.
But who made it possible?  Who brought that uniqueness to Andhra Pradesh?
It is not a commitee, it is not an institution, it is not a party, it is not a society, it is not a trust.
It is one man.
To be more precise a sage.
I am privileged to know this sage.
I am privileged to have this sage’s love and affection.
That sage is none other Tripuraneni Hanuman Choudary.
You can see me with this sage here.

The Sage

Footnote:
I
am privileged to have received both the albums – one of Kaviraju Tripuraneni Ramaswamy and the other of Tripuraneni Gopichand.
An other unique distinction bestowed upon me.
