Thyagaraja Page2

The parents educated their sons in their mother-tongue Telugu, in Sanskrit and the religious lore and got them married in due time too.

Jappesa the elder, it so happened, was less intelligent by nature and turned bad by association. Thyagaraja the younger, how ever, was astute and became well-versed in all the lores. Besides, he was pious by nature and helped his father in theworship of the family deity Rama.

In addition to these he studied Carnatic music under a local teacher. Very soon he became so proficient in music that he began composing- songs in praise of gods.

When father Ramabrahmam passed away, the two brothers divided their paternal properties. While Jappesa wasted his time and life in evil ways, Thyagaraja continued the worship of his family deities and composing new songs in their praise.
