Paravastu Chinnayasuri History:
Sri Chinnayasuri was a famous Telugu pundits of the 19th century. He was born at Perambur of Chengalpattu district in 1807 AD and died in 1861 AD. Chinnayasuri wrote many stories based on the morals. He followed Saivism and worked as a Telugu Pandit in the Government college of Madras. As a Pandit of Telugu language, he dedicated entirely his life for the progress and promotion of Telugu literature. He extensively researched on Andhra Grammar and wrote many books on Telugu grammar. These books are still the greatest source to learn the Telugu language in a proper way. Especially after the research on Andhra Grammar, he wrote Baala Vyaakaranamu in a new style of understanding to everyone. His books are widely available in Andhra Pradesh and every student could study his grammar in their educational life.
The writer of Neetichandrika:
He wrote Neetichandrika, Sootandhra Vyaakaranamu, Andhra Dhatumoola and Neeti Sangrahamu. His stories were very easy to understand and he narrated the story with the character of animals and birds. The students not only amusing to listen and read his stories but also learn the moral how to lead the life. Chinnayasuri translated from the Sanskrit language ‘Panchatantram’ into the Telugu language as ‘Neetichandrika’. His Mitra labham and Mitra Bedham stories wrote as the native stories. This NeetiChandrika also translated as Moonlight of Morals into the English Language. Generally, Neeti Chandrika contains five books, they are Mitra Labham, Mitra Bedham, Vigraham, Sandhi and Tantram. The first books translated into Telugu by Chinnayasuri and later Kandukuri Veeresa Lingam translated Vigraham and Sandhi into Telugu. The fifth one still not translated.
Writing Style of Paravastu Chinnayasuri:
Chinnayasuri writing style has peculiar quality and none other writer touches his classical style of writing. Some writers tried to create his classical style but failed desperately. His prose style of writing is still unparallel to any other well-known writers. In the Telugu literature, the writers Kandukuri Viresalingam and Kokkonda Venkataratnam tried to follow the style of Chinnayasuri’s style and wrote Vigrahamu and Sandhi, finally those formed in a different pattern. The readers could find the different between Chinnayasuri and other writers while reading his books.
Service to Telugu Literature:
The students are very fond of reading Neetichandrika and can understand the stories very easily. The common people who do not have command over the Telugu language can understand the stories of Neetichandrika. So we can easily understand how Chinnayasuri showed his intensity while writing Neetichandrika. The stories in Neetichandrika narrate the morals of life to the readers with slender and admirable Telugu language. Really we are very thankful to Chinnayasuri for bringing the moral based stories to the threshold of Telugu people and also we are very fortune having such Telugu literature.
