Cheppinatlu Chestara - Do Deeds Follow Words?
Sri Thammi Raju, Sathya Sai Baba’s school teacher, once asked young Sathya, who was only twelve years old, to produce a play in Telugu. Sathya plunged into the work very enthusiastically. The drama was a great success, not only because the protagonist of the play was a little boy enacted by Sathya himself but also because it had as its theme the eternal struggle of man to practice unity in thought, word and deed. The title of the play was "Cheppinatlu Chesthara?" meaning "Do deeds follow words?" The following play is adapted from that original play.
