Queen of Yakshagana

He taught yakshagan natya to the students for nearly seven years at Dharmasthala Yakshagana Training Center. He had dedicated ten years of his life in Alike Satya Sai Seva. The Alike Satya Sai Seva kids have performed the plays before Sathya Sai Baba in Puttaparthi .

Many contemporary yakshagana performers who act in female roles claim to be the disciples of the Kollyuru. All together, the Yakshagana play’s heritage is being transferred from generation to generation like Itappa Shetty heritage, Alake Ramayya Rai heritage, Kokkarne Narasimha heritage etc, through Kollyuru.

Unless you talk about the writer in Kollyuru, his autobiography is incomplete. His journals, remembrances about the contemporary Yakshagana artists and the theatre details, articles that were published in the newsletters have all grown to a great extent. All these are valuable information related to the theatres. 

He has even penned down the characters of the play. It is undoubtedly a precious piece of information.
