    "Sirivennela" Seetharama Shastry (born 20 May 1955) is one of the most notable lyricists in Indian cinema for movies made in the Telugu language. He has won several state level and other awards for his work. Most recently, he was invited to the TANA (Telugu Association of North America) 2009 cultural celebrations held in Chicago between 2 and 4 July 2009 as the keynote speaker.Chembolu Sitarama Sastri hails from the town of Anakapalli in Visakhapatnam district of the South Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. While pursuing his habit of poetry writing, he worked with the state-owned Telephone department for a living before he started writing film-songs.

    His father Dr C V Yogi was a multi faceted scholar who worked as a lecturer in Anakapalli (AMAL College) and Kakinada (Ideal College).
