తెలుగు బొమ్మల "చంద్రుడు" ని కలిసి మురిసిన వేళ...

Artist Sri. Chandra Garu autographing the book ఒక చంద్ర వంక for me:
'గిరి' కి చంద్రుడు 
One of the best moments in my life was meeting Legendary Telugu Artist Sri. Chandra Garu on Jan 23, 2017 at his residence in Ashok Nagar, Hyderabad, India. We spent few hours talking to him and listening to his journey with Arts, Artists, Movies, Books, People and many things of his life. I never imagined that I could meet him in my life. It was only made possible by Artist Anwar Garu whose Art I admire and is also a good friend of mine.

It was one of the happiest days for me meeting Sri. Chandra Garu along with two more great Artists of our age Anwar Garu and Moshe Dayan Garu. I was fortunate enough to share my experiences with Sri. Chandra's illustrations from my college days that got printed in the book released on his 70th birthday titled ఒక చంద్ర వంక (Oka Chandra Vanka).

Artists are generally humble by nature. I saw that quality even more in these three Artists I met.  It was all my pleasure meeting them and having Sri.Chandra's autograph in the book that I am going to keep for my life and pass it on to my next generations.

We always wish we could meet and be with people we like in life. Not everyone is fortunate to get that wish come true. I always wanted to meet Telugu Artists I used to admire since my childhood. I made serious attempts when I was in India long back but hardly met anybody. At last I could meet one of my favorite Artists Sri.Chandra Garu.

తెలుగు గర్వించదగ్గ  ఈ తెలుగు బొమ్మల "చంద్రుడు" పది కాలాల పాటు చల్లగా ఉండాలని ఆ భగవంతుని కోరుకుంటూ...
Thanks to Artist Anwar Garu.
Thank God for giving me that opportunity.
Now, I have this added to the moments I cherish for rest of my life.
