తెలుగు మాట...తేనె ఊట
TELUGU...a language sweeter than honey

మంచిని పంచుదాము వడపోసిన తేనీటి రూపం లో
తేనెకన్న మంచిదని తెలుగును చాటుదాము వేనోల్ల
ఇదే నా ఆకాంక్ష, అందరి నుంచి కోరుకునె చిరు మాట

Literary award for Bujjai

GUNTUR: Well-known children's writer దేవులపల్లి సుబ్బారాయ శాస్త్రీ ( Devulapalli Subbaraya Sastry ), better known as Bujjai, was selected for the డా. మంగ దేవీ సాహిత్య పురస్కారం ( Dr. Manga Devi Sahitya Puraskaram ) for the year 2005.

The award, instituted in 1994 by the founder of Sri Venkateshwara Bala Kuteer N. Manga Devi, carries Rs. 10,000 in cash and a memento. Some of the well-known recipients of the award include Mahidara Nalini Mohan, Edida Kameswara Rao, D. Sujatha Devi, Velaga Venkatappaiah and Ravuri Bharadwaja.

Sastry was born in 1931 at Pithapuram to Devulapalli Krishna Sastry and Rajahamsa. He is known as `Brahma of Comics' as he created many comic strips for children.

His Dumboo character brought him instant fame. Sastry's comics are not confined to Telugu alone, but are translated into various other Indian languages.
