Nenevadanu? (Who am I?)
« on: March 12, 2009, 11:56:32 AM »
On June 9, 1944, the Asramam asked G.V. Subbaramaiah, to correct
the proof of Nenevadanu?, Telugu Version of Who am I?, making
the necessary grammatical corrections.

While correcting the proof of Nenevadanu, G.V. Subbaramaiah, had
suggested that the title might be altered as Nenevaru? which would
be sex-less and also closer to the Tamil original, Naan Yaar?

The Asramam reply dated 15th June 1944, appreciated the suggestion, but concluded thus:

The masculineness in the title appears as that in "Purusha"
in Srimad Bhagavad Gita, XIII.22.  After referring to the Gita text,
we feel "Nenevadanu" is all right!
