VISWANADHAPALLI VENKATA LAKSHMIPATHI RAJU’S LIFE JOURNEY
I was born on Twenty November Nineteen hundred seventy seven at Yanam Nursing home (Dr. Varma). My parents were Father: Viswanadhapalli Soma Raju Mother: Viswanadhapalli Adamma ( Her house hold name is koppada).
At the time of my birth, my father has no job. After my sister Viswanadhapalli Suryavathi’s ( 2 years younger than me ) birth, my father got watchman job at Public woks Department, Yanam, later he was promoted to Peon – L.D.C – U.D.C and got retired. My father used to write rama koti ( sri rama, sri rama) . At the time of my birth, my mother working as a Primary teacher at girls primary school, near Central boys school. Later she was promoted to Telugu language teacher and also was in-charge head-mistress at S.K.S.P.V.R.N.High School, Kankalapeta and later retired.
As my parents both were working and no one there to take care , my date of birth was changed from 20-11-2020 to 29-08-1977 to join me in a school.
Primary Education ( 1982-87)
I did my education from 1st class to 5th class at Central Boys School, Yanam. When I was studying 3rd class Teacher Acharya gave me a progress card ( class 2nd rank). While I was walking to home with joy, somehow progress card lost out of my hand and fell into the nearby drainage. I left it there it self and start walking, my friends informed my grand-father ( Koppada Sathi Raju) disciple Koppada Drurga Rao ( learned tailoring from my grand father) about the incident. He carefully took my progress card and dried it and gave it to me back.
After schooling, daily I used to go to tuition at Pesala Tatabbayi house. I have written Navodaya vidyalaya entrance at the end of 5th class.
High School Education ( 1987-92)
Initially, I joined 6th class in Mahatma Gandhi High School, Yanam. After two months, I came to know that I was selected for Navodaya vidyala, Yanam while I was in the tuition centre of Pesala Tatabbai sir’s house.

When I was in 8th class, my right hand bone at the joint was broken, while I was playing Kabaddi at K.N.G.G.High school as five members other team fell on my hand as I was attempting to touch the middle line.
Intermediate ( 1992-94)
After 10th, teachers of Yanam JNV asked us to what you will do? which branch you are going to choose? I even thought of coming out of this JNV system to study intermediate at my home to secure more marks as at that time, there were no entrance exams, Engineering or Medical seats were allocated only on the basis of securing more marks. Since JNV is CBSE based, getting more marks is some what tough, whereas local Ap board getting more marks is much more easier. My class mate Jaya prakash, s/o telugu degree lecturer has done exactly that. Though he secured B.D.S seat, but entered into professional courses stream. I tried to convince my parents, but they have not agreed. My father thought that as JNV is a central based institution, they will give job after completing my course. I had no other option, so I extended my study at JNV. As I secured Mathematics subject 79/100 (2nd highest) in my 10th batch, I decided to go for M.P.C. As Yanam JNV is only up to 10th class, I was forced to take MBIpc (Boths Mathematics and Biology) at JNV,Peddapuram, East Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh located at Panadavulametta. Some of my 10th batch mates joined at HEC, JNV Peddapuram and some others joined vocational course at JNV near visakhapatnam.
I went to Hyderabad along with my brother to give send off to my parents who are going to US to stay at sister’s home for 6 months. After that I and my brother went to vist Ramoji film city. Here is a glimpse of this
