Cinare, an evergreen poet

20150309cnar250Gnanapeeta awardee Cingireddy Sathyanarayana Reddy, popularly known as cinare, needs no introduction for his efforts to lift Telugu to great heights and for his contribution to Telugu literature as a poet and multi-linguist. Today is his birthday. A critic, lyricist, play-wright, educationist and an orator he is gifted with a voice and a command over the language. He is revered for his inherent sense exhibited on any stage.  His poetic career began with lyrics Navvani Puvvu  in 1953.  Reddy shone in the middle class with his Madhyataragati Mandahasam (1968).  Ritu Chakram (1964), Mantalu Manavudu (1970) and his vision of Man in Viswambhara (1980) are praise-worthy. There is a blend of lyrical romanticism, optimistic humanism, progressive idealism and healthy realism in his writings. He was born on July 29, 1931 in a far flung hamlet Hanumajipeta in Karimnagar district but made news with his talent, merit and not compromising on the quality of literature observing discipline at any rate. He took PG and Ph D from Osmania University. What began as poetic flow he was influenced by Gurujada writings and he too started in popular language and it was not limited to Telugu but they were translated into many other languages. That was the prowess of his style. Telugu letters are his soldiers and fell in line as per his command. His lyrics for films earned him an undying renown. He was closely associated with NTR and Cinare often recalled that the hero persuaded the former to write for his films.
