Sri Krishnanunni was always staying with me whenever he visited Hyderabad. I used to take great pride in being the host to such a great individual. I am not competent to write about his intellectual capabilities. Hence I intend sharing some experiences with him as a great human being.. He used to bring a bunch of toffees to my children which the airlines used to give to the passengers. He used to tie shoe laces for my son and daughter when they were going to the school. In one of his visits there was power breakdown in my house. I offered to take him to a guest house or a hotel. He asked me how we plan to manage that night. I told him that we don't have an alternative. He insisted on staying with us only. He visited Hyderabad as Director-General in December 2000. I called him and told him that we would arrange in the State Guest house which he was entitled. He told me that he was coming to my house only. Such was his simplicity. My family cherishes the memory of his visits to our house and I feel greatly privileged.
