At the outset, let me express my Pranamams to my Gurus.

I also express my Pranamams to all my elders in Astrology and hearty greetings to the Astrological Fraternity.

I have spent more than half of my life in learning astrology and still continue to be the student of  astrology, but could not master it, because it is a big ocean.
Life of Guruji Late Sri P.V.K. PUNNESWARA RAO RAO garu, who hailed from a simple orthodox family, stands as a best example for making the life a wholesome, fruitful and successful one.
