This small book of 48 pages surprisingly is packed with content. It is amazing to
know that this book was conceived, compiled and published in less than 14
days, to be ready for the 2009 Nandi Nataka Awards function .

The book has rare photos of great theatre personalities like Ghantasala Balaramiah, Rallapalli Ramasubbaiah, Vedam Venkataraya Sastry, Ongolu Venkata Rangaiah, Komanduru Parthasarathi Aiyyangar, Puligundla Ramakrishnaiah, Ganga Ratnam, Dubagunta Narayana Rao, Potluri Chencu Ramaiah, Rallapalli Natesham, Kamarajugadda Srinivasa Rao, Mamidiudi Venkata Rangaiah, Rebala Srilakshmi, Somayajulu, Guduru Savitri, Vanarasa Koteswari Devi and the more popular Rajanala, Raktha Kanneru Nagabhushanam, T. Ramana Reddy, Vani Sri.

The book traces the evolution of drama from 1875 till date. And there are interesting articles about a play that was staged for 25 year and an Acharya Atreya written play that was staged 100 times.
