Amitabh Bachchan had the grace to look embarrassed when the hot seat candidate answered 'Vempati' even without hearing the four options to the question, "Who amongst these is the most renowned Kuchipudi Guru?" Such is the popularity of Vempati Chinna Satyam, who carved a laurel-filled niche internationally for himself as a Guru.

The man has to his credit 16 dance ballets and 200 dance items for women dancers, with Vyjayanthimala, Yamini Krishna Murthy, Shobha Naidu and Manju Bhargavi being the more prominent performers.

And for fans who couldn't get enough of him at last month's SICA annual fest inaugural, the South Central Railway Women's Welfare Organization is organizing a dance program as part of its annual cultural festival. And Vempati will present the same Kuchipudi ballet composed by him, Sri Pada Parijatham, at this function, too.

The ballet has the story of Annamayya unfold itself in stages, starting with the parents instilling spiritual values in their only son and his travails in everyday living, and progressing onto the call of devotion to Lord Venkateswara, Bhakti established at the temple and his initiation by a Vaishnava Yati who leads him on to the divine path through the keertanas that he writes.

Chinna Satyam's ballets have won him rave reviews all over the world. For having made the Kuchipudi art form famous worldwide, Chinna Satyam has been a beneficiary of several awards and honors, with a few big ones being the Kala Prapoorna from the Andhra University and the Kalamani award from the Government of Tamil Nadu.

Dr. Akkineni Nageswar Rao will be the chief guest at this function, and the South Central Railway General Manager N Krithivasan will be the guest of honor. Please contact Suresh, Welfare Inspector at 706-2908 (R) for further details.
