VISAKHAPATNAM: The popular song written by Mahakavi Gurajada Appa Rao, ‘Desamunu Premimchumanna Manchi Annadi Penchumanna’ (Love the country and promote the goodwill) was meant not just for India but for all the nations across the world. He wrote the song to spread a message that every person in the world should love their country. In fact, all countries should translate the song into their mother tongue, Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly deputy speaker M Buddha Prasad has felt.
Buddha Prasad on Wednesday visited Gurajada Appa Rao’s house in the town, which was recently turned into Gurajada Appa Rao Memorial Building. He said that efforts would be made to develop the building as a heritage structure in future. A permanent museum, playing Gurajada’s songs using advanced audio equipment and screening of documentaries on his writings would also be taken up in the memorial building, he added. Earlier, the deputy speaker handed over 30 special laminated photos related to Gurajada and his works to collector MM Naik and requested him to place them in the memorial building.
