"This is an article I wrote some 30 years back for Ramoji Rao's Newstime paper in the hope of getting an appointment with him to ask for a break as a director because at that time he had come up with some unconventional hits like “Srivariki Premalekha”, “Mayuri” and “Pratighatana”. So I thought my best chances were with him but the problem was to get access to him. So I came up with a this Idea and wrote an article titled “The Ideas that killed 50 million people” for his then newspaper called “Newstime”. It got published and then I identified myself to him as the writer of that article and got my appointment with him." RGV said.
