We shall start with a verse by Poet Kavi ChauDappa
ఆడిన మాటలు తప్పిన
గాడిద కొడుకంచు తిట్టగా విని, మదిలో
వీడా కొడు కన ఏడ్చును
గాడిదయును కుందవరపు కవి చౌడప్పా !
Verse in English script:-
ADina mATalu tappina
gADida koDukancu tiTTagA vini, madilO
vIDA koDukana EDcunu
gADidayunu kundavarapu kavi CauDappA!
English meaning, each line:
When a person violates his own promises,(lies)
(when his promisee) cursed him that he was a Donkey's son, in (its) mind,
"Is this person my son"
the donkey too (curses itself).
The last three words of the fourth line in this poem, are the poet's own name. The poet is addressing himself. Satakams (booklets/books of 100 verses) usually have the same ending at the end in the fourth line, called "makuTam (crown)". The crown for this ChauDappa Satakam is "kundavarapu kavi CauDappA!".
Some people say that Poet CauDappa lived in 14th Century i.e. Kakatiya dynastic period. But, there is one verse by the poet which was addressed to Raghunatha Nayaka King, who ruled Tanjavoor, Tamil Nadu in 17th Century.
Hindi ScriptLike we ordinary scribes who do not have control on our pens (computer keyboards and fingers?), our political leaders too do not have control over their mouth and tongue, when they get access to mike or dish out their harangues and orations to media persons.
आडिन माटलु तप्पिन
गाडिद कॊडुकंचु तिट्टगा विनि, मदिलो
वीडा कॊडुकंचु एड्चुनु
गाडिदयुनु कुंदवरपु कवि चौडप्पा !
Hindi language gist
जब एक आदमी अपने वादे से वापस लौटा,
वचन ग्रहीता उसको गालियाँ दिया कि वे एक गधे के बेटे, तब उनको सुनकर, मन में,
"क्या यह (झूटा) मेरा बेटा" कहकर रोया,
गधा भी , ओ कुंदवरपु कवि चौडप्पा.
आखरी तीन पद "कुंदवरपु कवि चौडप्पा" यह कवी का नाम है। कवी अपने पद्य को अपन से ही कह रहे थे। शतक वाङ्मय में यह परंपरागत आचार है कि, शतक में रहनेवाले सौ पद्यों में, चौथा लैन (आखरी पंक्ती) की अंत एक ही रहती है। उसको मकुट कहते हैं। एक उदाहरण: विश्वदाभिराम विनुर वेमा। (वेमन शतक में महाकवी वेमना अपने को अड्रस किया).
अपने को अड्रस करने के निर्बंध तो नहीं है। उदाहरण: सुमती शतकम। महाकवी थे, बद्दॆनामात्य। मकुट था "सुमती , माने ओ सुबुध्धी" ।
जैसा हम, रचयिताओंं को अपने कलम (कंप्यूटर कीबोर्ड और उंगलिंयों) पर कंट्रोल नही रहते, हमारे पालक नेताओं को , मीडिया लोग को प्रवचन देते समय, अपने मुह और जीब पर नियंत्रण नहीं रहना सर्वत्र दृश्यमान है।
ఎలాగైతే మనకు రచయితలకు మన కలాల (కంప్యూటర్ కీబోర్డులు, చేతివేళ్ళ) పై నియంత్రణ ఉండదో, మన పాలక నేతలకు కూడ, వాళ్ళ నోళ్ళు, నాలుకలపై నియంత్రణ కరువవటం, ముఖ్యంగా మీడియా ముందు మాట్లాడేటపుడు మైమరచిపోవటం మనకు సర్వత్రా కనిపిస్తుంది.
Let us see the Great sayings of our Chief Minister of Residual Andhra Pradesh Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu, on May 1:
हम हमारे शेष आंध्र प्रदेश के मुख्य मंत्री श्री नारा चंद्रबाबु नायुडु के , १ मे २०१५ के मीडिया से कहा हुआ, महानू भाषण देखेंगे।
"...It was the Telugu Desam that had given Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekahara Rao, a break-through in politics. ..."
तॆलंगाणा मुख्यमंत्री कॆ. चंद्रशेखर राव को सियासी में एक पहले प्रवेश द्वार, तॆलुगु देशं ने दिया था।
"...KCR was given a chance and political respectability by TD founder N.T. Rama Rao. He learnt all about politics while in the TD , and now he is abusing it. If the TD had not given him a political life and a respectable position, KCR would have been tending cattle in Siddipet or he would have become a shepherd. ..."
टीडी संस्थापक ऎन. टी. रामाराव के सी आर को एक अवकाश, और राजनीतिक सम्मान दिया था। वह (कॆसीआर्) टीडी मे रहते हुए, पूरा राजनीती सीखा, और अभी वह तॆलुगु देशम को गालियाँ दे रहा है। अगर तॆलुगु देशम उसको राजकीय जीवन और सम्मानित स्थान नहीं दिया, तो वह सिध्धिपेट में पशु पालन करते रहता था। या एक गडेरिया बनता था।
తెలుగు దేశం సంస్థాపకులు శ్రీ ఎన్ టీ రామా రావు గారు కెసీఆర్ కు ఒక అవకాశం మరియు రాజకీయాల్లో గౌరవ స్థానం ఇచ్చారు. అతడు (కెసీఆర్) రాజకీయాల గురించి మొత్తం, తెలుగు దేశం పార్టీలో ఉండగానే నేర్చుకున్నాడు, మరియు ఇపుడు దానినే (ఆ తెలుగు దేశాన్నే) తిడ్తున్నాడు. తెలుగుదేశం పార్టీ అతడికి రాజకీయ జీవితాన్ని మరియు గౌరవనీయ స్థానాన్ని ఇచ్చి ఉండకపోతే , కెసీఆర్ సిధ్ధిపేటలో పశువులు కాస్తూ ఉండేవాడు, లేక గొర్రెల కాపరి అయ్యేవాడు.
KCR's nephew Harish Rao, also his Cabinet member, used the opportunity to intelligently demand apology from Mr. Naidu, for insulting the yAdav community. Mr. Harish Rao said:--
"...His remarks amount to insulting the Yadav community. He should withdraw his remarks and tender an apology. ..."
"...On May Day, leaders speak about issues concerning working class. These kind of political and casteist remarks are not expected from a man who boasts of working as CM for nine years and as opposition leader for ten years, on this day. This shows the grudge he has against Telangana ..."
"...KCR came from an agriculture family. He donated his big house to set up a government school in his village in Medak. On the other hand, Naidu came from a family which owned only 2 acres but everyone knows how much wealth he has amassed now after becoming CM. ..."
ybrao-a-donkey's humble perceptions वैबीराव गधे के विनम्र अनुशीलनाएँ और भावनाएँ వైబీరావు గాడిద వినమ్ర అభిప్రాయాలు
1) Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu might have spoken truth. But it was on a wrong platform, at a wrong time (May Day, a day dedicated to Labourers and Workers). Mr. Naidu didn't realise that at this moment, KCR was like Lord Krishna to the People of TelangANa, wielding his bewitching and magical flute. KCR KTR THR have sufficiently poisoned the minds of Telangana People. He converted his micro level personal dis-satisfaction with Mr. Naidu, as a macro level serious problem of the People of Telangana. The People of Telangana have their own set of problems, which KCR cannot solve, has no inclination to solve.
2) There were allegations against Mr. KCR that in his early days he cheated Gulf migrants. Neither Late Mr. N.T. Rama Rao, nor Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu bothered to verify his credentials before giving him his political breakthrough, and respectable position. KCR studied in the political school of NTR and CBN and obtained a Doctorate on misleading people. Now, Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu owes an apology to the People of Telangana State, and the Residual Andhra Pradesh, for neglecting to order intelligence/police/judicial enquiries into the allegations against KCR which might have proved that he was a cheat. In the early days, the sufferers of his deceptions might have come forward with required evidence.
3) There are rumours that Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu have accumulated benami assets in Hyderabad City. KCR is in power in Hyderabad City now. He has a duty to order intelligence/police/judicial enquiries into the alleged disproportionate assets of Mr. Naidu and his family. If there are any legal bars and obstacles, he should have asked his Advocate General and Govt. Advocates to file appropriate applications/appeals/revisions in Higher Courts. KCR should do it, at least, now. What is the use of Harish Rao repeating like parrot, the issue of the disproportionate assets of Mr. Naidu?
Mr. Lal Krishna Advani and Mr. Murali Manohar Joshi may also be ruminating how they gave political breakthrough and respectable positions to Mr. Narendra Modi. (Mr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee cannot do it because of his ill health). Though our beloved PMOI has become a near-traitor to them, so far, they have not come out openly, may be, they have their own reasons. Why Mr. Naidu is abusing KCR?
Like many other States of India,-- Telangana and Andhra Pradesh are also being ruled by leaders of "BhUkulam" castes (landholding castes). The progenies of bhUkulams seem to have some inherited traits, one of which is looking down with disdain, the occupations of working Class. In some States, Yadavs (persons belonging to YAdav caste) are also landholders, and have the characteristics of bhU-kulams (landed castes). Many progenies of some landed castes, even if they may have been born landless (or small-marginal farmer), seem to have a condescending and disdainful opinion and view of occupations involving labor and toil. Within their minds not only Mr. Naidu, even KCR & Co., may be having this "looking-down-upon" opinions about sweat-occupations like cattle-rearing and shepherds. They may be hiding it, because they are now on their job to throw stones on Mr. Naidu.
I (this ybrao a donkey) have seen with my own eyes, both in Telangana and Sesh Andhra villages, the hard and painful living conditions of small cattle rearers (not big dairy farm owners), and the shepherds. They deserve better dignity of labor and respect, than what is being extended to them now. Small and marginal farmers, agricultural laborers also fall under this deserve-more respect citizens. I have seen with my own eyes, several hundreds of marginal farmers and agricultural laborers temporarily migrating in search of work, with their families, utensils loaded in gunny bags. Now, Mr. Naidu has revealed his mindset of derison and scorn towards sweat-occupations. Earlier too, pooh-poohed agriculture and the suicide of agriculturists.
Learned Readers may recall the utterances of Mr. Sharad Yadav in Parliament, about Ms. Smriti Irani, to estimate the mindsets of bhUkulams. This comment is not to justify what Mrs. Irani said, intended at Mr. Sharad Yadav.
Senior leaders with nine years experience or twenty years experience, ought to have acquired greater wisdom and control on their tongues.
I hope to provide Hindi and Telugu translations for this post, someday. The problem is I am unable to raise to the tasks which I have taken up.
