Gudipati Venkata Chalam

19 May 1894 - 4 May 1979

I detest autobiographies. Writing an autobiography presupposes that the writer thinks that he is someone important to the world, he did a great service to people, if he didn’t tell about it, his greatness would not be revealed to the world, and if it is not known it would be a great loss to the world. If someone like me who thinks “Why was I ever born? Once I was, why didn’t I instantly die? Why did I pollute my environs for so long?” writes his story shamelessly, it can never be forgiven. If the writing still happens, it means that things are not in our hands. Besides, I can’t see well. My thoughts won’t speak except through my fingers. What I think does not come through in words. Still, this book is getting written.



Even infinite time is only a moment

In that momentary time, our life is but one moment
Now, an awareness of you and I.
The next moment, neither you nor I
That which is no more
will never come back..


In the infinite past

we were not:
In the infinite future
we will not be:
in the fathomless emptiness
without beginning and end,
just for a moment -
this flash called I !
