Bio

Back Drop:

Born on 21st October 1963 to lower middle class parents. I am with them only for less than 3 years. During that time when my father was doing a small job in telephone dept in the town called Barsi in maharastra state; Around 1966, I was brought to vellanki by my Pedananna  & Peddmma  . Vellanki is small village in krishna Dist.

This is very important:

I was brought up by my peddmma & pedananna right from  3 years of age to till I settled in my life. My own parents have not played any role in my upbringing. In fact till I finished my intermediate I have no contact or relationship with them except when meeting in holidays now and then. When I was in graduation the two families started living together in nandigama a small town in krishna Dist..
