The stories are about the people of the village of Amaravati and were first published in the AandhraJoyti newspaper. Later on, the stories were published by Navodaya Publishers in the form of a book, which bears art of renowned artist Bapu. The book was re-printed several times.The series ran for two years. They follow a typical Chekhovian style.The stories are heart warming and are about people (especially from andhra)encounter in their everyday lives.

There are 101 stories in this collection, each one having a simple picture drawn by Bapu. The foreword is by Mullapudi Venkata Ramana. These stories are work of imagination and fiction, and they are inspired by incidents and folk stories related to Amaravathi.The stories, along with the pictures drawn by Bapu are considered as one of the best Telugu short story collection of 20th century. This book also won the Andhra Sahitya Academy award in 1979. The stories were dictated by Sankaramanchi to popular All India Radio news reader Prayaga Ramakrishna who wrote down the stories.

Syam Benagal made a TV serial based on these stories with the name "Amaravati ki kathayein".

Lovely book!

All the stories are short and sweet. Story titles are succinct and give the gist of the story. An interesting fact is that the pictures adjacent to the titles were drawn by none other than famous Indian director Bapu gaaru. The pictures tell the story! I was inspired to read this book after a recommendation from guruji Trivikram Srinivas on a number of occasions in his speeches. I speak Telugu but I hardly can manage reading it. Despite the fact, I still am able to read the stories and thoroughly enjoy each and every story. You can imagine how much I was inspired to read the book even though I can't read Telugu that well. I highly recommend this book to all the Telugu language admirers. I am learning a lot of new Telugu words which we don't use that often in everyday use in contemporary society. All the characters in this book are based in Amaravati. It is such a treat to get the native feel of a village while reading the book. Thanks to Satyam Shankaramanchi, the author, for drafting such lovely stories. Without mentioning him my review would be incomplete
