Apparao Vissa (1884-1966)
Professor Apparao Vissa was born in 1884 in Peddapuram in Niyogi Brahmin family. His father was Ramachamdrudu and mother was Manikyamba. Their family was interested in literature and arts.

Apparao completed his secondary school education in Peddapuram and high school in Amalapuram. He finished his BA in Rajamahendravaram, and MA and LT in Chennai (Madras). He studied Mahabharat and Ramayanam at a young age. His interests include scientific literature, dance, singing, painting etc. After finishing his education, he worked at various government colleges and became the principal of Andhra University (1938-41) in Waltair.

Apparao was a friend of Venkatasastri Chellapilla and supported his avadhanas. As he was reform minded, his son married daughter of Prabhakarasastri Veturi, a Vaidiki Brahmin. In those days, inter-caste marriage between Viadiki Brahmins and Niyogi Brahmins was very rare. There was also a big difference between their income -Prabhakarasastri's income was 50 rupees and Apparao's income was 800 rupees.

Apparao's works include essays such as pandavaagnaatavaasa vatsara vyaapti nirnayamu, ainsteenu yokka saapekshavaadamu, etc in various journals and published those essays in a series in 1956. He published several books such as tyagaraya keertanalu, kshetrayya padaalu, thyaagaraaya apuroopakeertanalu, kshetrayya padamulu-svarayuktamu, aadhyaatma raamaayana keertanalu- svarayuktamu etc. His scientific works include paramaanusakti, aakaasam, etc. He translated Sir CV Raman's "Aspects of Science" into Telugu. He also gave talks on radio.
