Rich tributes paid to Bharago

Special Correspondent

His collection of short stories ‘Warning' released



Noted writer and film actor Gollapudi Maruthi Rao speaking at a meeting organised to pay tributes to noted writer Bharago in the city on Wednesday.

VISAKHAPATNAM: Rich tributes were paid to noted humour writer Bhamidipati Rama Gopalam (Bharago) at a meeting organised by literary and cultural organisations in the city at Visakha Public Library here on Wednesday.

With Bharago responsible for bringing out several books during his five-decade career, the organisers also arranged the release of his short stories ‘Warning' published by Jyeshta Literary Trust of which he was the correspondent.

Noted writer Gollapudi Maruthi Rao, who released the book, said Bharago's approach was phlegmatic. “It was this attitude which always amazed me. He had the ability to communicate, perform and survive,” he remarked.

Another film actor Kallu Chidambaram recalled his association with him in Visakhapatnam Port Trust where they worked together. When he gave the proofs of his Artistes' Directory containing over 80 pages to Bharago for correction, the latter finished the job by noon the next day, he revealed, and said this was one example of his devotion to duty. Though Bharago worked in the Estate Department of VPT, he never used the position for personal gains and died without owning even a 100-yard plot, he said.

Virasam leader Chalasani Prasad said Bharago should be remembered for bringing out numerous publications, big and small. He was also a good singer, rendering Saigal's songs.

Organiser of the meeting Ramatheertha said that Bharago Mitramandali was formed for publishing literature and organising guest lectures and literary meetings and all friends and admirers of Bharago were welcome to join it. Kalavedika's Nanduri Ramakrishna, Masthan Reddy, Kosana, Bhayya Suryanarayana and others spoke at the meeting chaired by noted writer L.R. Swami. Earlier, a two-minute silence was observed by the gathering as a mark of respect to Bharago who died last week. Floral tributes were paid to his portrait set up on the dais.
