The fact that not even a single soul from amomg the so-called glitterati of Andhra's celluloid and political firmament has paid a simple lip-service to condole the demise of this talented hero, speaks volumes of the apathy and allegy these dirty people have acquired to humanitarian values, let alone the "Telugu feeling".

We, ordinary people too, as a society and civilization, have developed kind of brutal insensitivity to everything that has little to do with power equations and dominance.
