Suryanarayanasastri Gorti (1882-1945)

Suryanarayanasastri Gorti was born in 1882 in a village called Priyagrahamu. His parents were Venkamma and Sambasadasivasastri. He was pundit in both Sanksrit and Andhra languages. He studied Sanskrit language in Kasi. He joined the Government College of the King of Vijayanagaram as a teacher.

He was very particular about pure formal Andhra language used in the literature (graandhika bhaasha), which was mostly Sanskritized. He used to speak graandhika bhaasha at home also, which led to his students to make fun of his love for written formal language. Another example of graandhika bhaasha speakers was Prof. Venkataratnam Kokkonda. Nowadays, the spoken language in Andhra Pradesh is mostly Anglicized and may be called Tenglish. If you speak Telugu without English words and sentences in it, you would be like Profs. Gorti or Kokkonda, and a laughingstock as well!

Suryanarayanasastri wrote poetry in Sanskrit and Andhra languages. His Sanskrit works include vishayaayudha vijayabaanam, gajapati sthavaraajam, etc. His Telugu works include uttarayatraacharitra and some reviews on poetry.
