The Limca Book of Records – 2015 this year is special for its Literature Section. Two Telugu people SVN. Pranavi Prasad and K. Seetharam made it famous in the book. Seetharam animated the timeless Vemana Poetry (entered in the category – First animated poetry book). Limca book of records states ” K Seetaram of Hyderabad visualized 100 poems of Telugu poet Vemana in an animation film titled Viswadhami Rama Vinura Vema. A book of the same title was released in September 2013 and has been supplied to primary schools in Andhra Pradesh under the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan.” It was extremely delightful to learn that the Vemana Poetry books were further distributed to school children as part of the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan Scheme. The words of wisdom will now be etched in the children’s memory with much more force and creativity
Pranavi Prasad was the first to use Technology innovatively for a book and opted for a 3D cover for his book Anuragavanam. As per Limca book of records “Pranavi Prasad SVN (Somarouthu Vijaya Narasimha Prasad) (b June 10, 1944) of Chennai authored a book in Telugu titled Anuragavanam, which was published with a special 3D cover by Vijayendra Creations, Chennai. It was launched at Sri Venugopal Vidyalaya, Chennai on June 16, 2014. The subject of the non-fiction book is flood water management and techniques to clean River Ganga.”
