Rachakonda Viswatha sastry was revolutionary telugu writer from Visahhapatnam, India. He was born in 1922 and by his 16 th year he met M N.Roy in Vizac. Mr Abburi Ramakrishna rao, librarian and stage specialist in Andhra University at that time brought Roy to the university and introduced to vice chancellor Cattamanchi Ramalingareddy. Abbru Varadarajeswararao, son of Ramakrishnarao and Viswanatha sastry were friends and together they met Roy. They were students in A V N College, Vizac at that time. Since the meeting of Viswanatha sastry with M N Roy is important I was curious to know details. The brother of Viswanatha sastry Dr Narasimha Sarma who lives in Visakhapatnam traced the dairies and sent me the details. The dairies were written in Telugu and hence Narasasimha Sarma put it in English for me and sent me . I am giving that historical important information here:
