Birds of a feather flock together - the cliché, however, is truer than we may realize. Which is why we see great men immortalized through the company they once kept. And this is emphatically evident in the friendship of Palagummi Vishwanathan and Devulapalli Krishna Shastry.

Sarath Chandra Kumar, the founder of the cultural organization Nada Vinodini in 1988, has handed over its responsibilities to the eminent musician of film industry, Palagummi Vishwanatham.

Since then, in the capacity of president of the organization, Vishwanatham has been teaching music to a number of aspiring students and also conducts music competitions in the memory of his friend, Devulapalli Krishna Shastry.

Krishna Shastry was a 'natural' poet (Bhava Kavi) and has written a number of traditional and patriotic songs for the Telugu film and literature industry. He expired in the 1980s', but budding and eminent artists render his songs on stage even now.

Vishwanatham, apart from teaching and conducting music competitions, also releases music cassettes every year, of songs written by Krishna Shastry and sung by his students. In addition to this, he conducts singing competitions every January and gives away prizes to the winners on 24th February, which is Krishna Shastry's Vardhanti. The competitors are to sing only songs composed by the late Devulapalli Krishna Shastry.

On prize distribution day this year, Nada Vinodini is organizing a culture program wherein the winners in the competition will sing along with its own students, and there will also be a ballet in which 3 groups will perform. Some of the evergreen hits composed by Krishna Shastry - 'Tarali Raramma' (written in 1956 on the event of the state's formation), Mallenamma Malleney (written in 1955 for the Congress session) and the 'Umbrella' song - will be performed on stage by the kids of Nada Vinodini.
