There once was a way of telling poems in Telugu language which is known as adhikshepam. Targets for this kind of poetry usually were the kings who used to be ill-tempered, ill-natured and ill-treated the poets who went to them expecting patronage. Poets who were pained to receive bad treatment from their kings and some others who could not adjust to the hard ways of the world and immoral behaviour of certain people around them, started giving vent to their ire in the form of poems that depicted blame and hatred on whatever they disliked.

It was his brother Kuchimamchi Timmakavi who started the new category of Adhikshepa Sataka works i. Other poets followed this method and works like Venugopala SatakamMadanagopala Satakam etc. Most of his poems have become very popular and remembered to this day, mainly for the wit they contained, the intelligent and fluent way in which it was portrayed.


When a person tells poetry as Peddana He be called Pedda ; a lesser poet be called Pedda? He should either be called eddu, moddu Or vhoudappaOh Kumdavarapu kavi Choudappa!

To understand the meaning of this poem, I should give some explanatory notes for the words that occurred in this poem fhoudappa a certain amount of rhyming. Peddanaeddumoddu and gadda. Peddana is a big name in classical Telugu poetry.

His full name is Allasani Peddanamatyawho adorned the royal court of Vijayanagar king Sri Krishnadevarayathe most revered and liked king of South India, who ruled between the years and He invented a style of his own, an easy-going style of telling poetry, which is replete with descriptions of high imaginations which are pleasing to the mind.

The word Pedda that occurred twice in the second line means a big one, a kwvi one in telling poetry ; the first two lines of the poem thus mean, a poet who could tell poetry as good as Allasani Peddanamatya could only be called a good poet; a poet of chouudappa capabilities cannot be called a Pedda — good poet.


He could only be called eddu — means Ox, moddu — means an unintelligent fool and gadda — means choufappa, all these words intentionally derogatory.


I hope with this explanation, the meaning and intended wit in the poem is made clear. You can get Kavi Chowdappa Satakam from http: I have picked up recently from this online bookstore based in Hyderabad.
