[There seem to be some problem with my newsserver, hope I'm not
inadvertantly duplicating the messages -- Suresh.]

Well, over the past 2 years, I have tried to save the telugu
quotations, that I used for appending the signature in my mails
and articles. Most of these quotations are taken from modern telugu
poetry and movie songs. I found that this file was collecting dust
on my hard drive, and thought some of you might be interested to make
a copy of this [before it gets destroyed one day].

These quotations are not in arranged in any particular order nor
follow any particular theme. Also, if you are looking for some
morals then you would be disappointed. The only commonality of all
these quotes, IMHO, is that each of them has a certain lyrical value;
Each of these quotes has either an interesting word-play or an
enchanting melodic pattern or a special style of versification.

Feel free to use these in the cyberspace, to distribute them and
to make additions of your liking. Also, if you find any mistakes
correct them for yourselves. BTW, all these quotes are
transliterated following a scheme defined by RIT as expected.

[One neat idea is to use a utility to display a randomly selected
quote from this lot. You can find a C-program - that I used - to
that effect, at the end of the second part.]

Without further ado, here is the collection in two parts.

Regards,
