Inspite of the fact that he got up at 3:00 AM to catch the flight, Bapu showed no signs of fatigue - with his characteristic grin, he was ready for action as soon as he hit the ground! It is a mark of his greatness that he felt no need to show us his greatness by being superior. Within minutes, we were chatting and joking with him like old friends.
Bapu garu is very knowledgeable about movies in general. He seems to remember practically every scene in each of his movies, and also identifies obscure details from other's movies.

Arudra: "కవితకి వయసంటూ లేదు. మంచి కవితైతే అది ఎన్నేళ్ళైన గుర్తుంటుంది. నేను 40 యేళ్ళకృతం ఒక కవిత వ్రాసాను". listener: "ఏం కవితో కొంచం వినిపిస్తార" Arudra: "గుర్తు లేదండీ " (అంటే మంచి కవిత కాదనమాట!)
All in all, it was a wonderful day for me, and I must thank whoever is watching over me from above for giving me this great opportunity. The program the next day was a grand success, and the audience got a glimpse of Bapu gari humor and personality in the question/answer session. With any luck, he will visit us again soon, and allow us to enjoy his presence once again.
