My father introduced me to the joy of being an unabashed fan of the legendary Tamil thespian P.U. Chinnappa. One of the narratives he use to exult about, was from the film Krishna Bhakthi (famous for the song Saarasam), in which there is a 15 minute Kathaa Kalakshepam on Lord Krishna narrated by P.U. Chinnappa posing as a pious bhagavathar. His outrageous action of using snuff powder while talking of pranayamam, splits us into peals of laughter.

On the other side of Krishna Bhakthi is the serious Sri Krishnaanubhavam, by U. Ve. Velukkudi Krishnan Swamigal. He needs no introduction to the world of Asthikas especially Sri VaishnavAs. I am blessed that I had a brief association with him as a co-student of Vivekananda College, after which the torrents of a nomadic life took us apart. His Krishna Bhakthi, though is beyond any reproach.

The two vignettes of Krishna Bhakthi with very Happy Wishes for Sri Jayanthi:
