A tough mountain, uncorrupted untempered Space and Time, a silhouette of endurance is what life is…. when one finally releases a smile, then she found life. “Sip the best in life, emit the essence through out, meet all pains with smiles,” Seela says.
Nagasuseela Panchumarthi, a lovely woman from Guntur, a lady-nut to crack… not by the pouring rains or roaring lions nor the earth-moving upheavals __nooooo, not Seela!She is inside that force, she seeks defines overcomesall routes not by anger or hate but by love. A character of friendships and hospitality, a giver from the heart, she is the biblical image of humility, a being of in and out beauty.
An image of movement, the perpetual uprooting and planting, she paints life, “life blooms like a flower, coughs like toddler , snakes life a river , melodious like a dove… life can be both gloom and glow.” As a poet, she is outside the language, words comes in spontaneity; drive her pen to verses and phrases in a most paradoxical flair. Born and bred in a very traditional family: strict discipline is a must, and though an only daughter in the entire family, she was never pampered, never allowed to roam with friends to picnics, parties or movies. Instead she has gained expertise in cooking unique dishes, painting, interior decoration. She married at 20age to a bank manager but it was when at 22age when she joined the teaching profession, that she discovered life’s reality.
Prof P.Nagasuseela is a Bi lingual Writer, Poet, Author, Editor, Critic, Translator, Short Story Writer, Motivator, Event Manager, Propagator of World Peace, Designs the Title Covers, Posters, Post Cards with Poetry on it, Painter, Interior Designer, Social Activist, a Good Host and a Culinarian, Organizer , Comperor and Sponsor of International Poetry fest.

Her eyes glint in joy while she says, “Life, Love and Death are the three thing I’ve been constantly fascinated, mesmerized, meditated deeply for over years… without friends, parties, picnics, without TV, without watching movies, I’ve been spending life ….dedicating every minute to my teaching profession and rearing up children, looking after my parents.”
All my poetry
is the Echo of my heart
Symphony of my feelings
Replica of my mute responses
Soothing balm to solace.
My Pen – My Pal
My pen, my bosom pal, my all
Listens to my smiles and sorrows
Walks through my woes and worries
Touches my soul with rainbow hues
Dances to the tunes of my feelings
Paints my dreams and fancies
Shares my ideas and ideals
Soothes me with fine lyrics
Exposes my zeal and zest
Carves my deep inner thoughts
Gives solace to my heart and soul
Erases all my crazy fears
Sings songs of true emotions
My pen, my chum, my best pal
A fine ‘ part ‘ of my ‘soul’!
asked about Life:
“Life teaches what’s life, an incessant struggle: face tsunamis __a long song with many tunes left unsung, balancing my mind and soul…I’ve been searching the real meaning of “Life” for decades, inquired, interacted with the elite of the world, Professors, Poets, Prophets, Scholars, and Common men…but in vain.”
Though all roads lead to Rome,
All rifts rewind the burning problem
All words provoke only negative sense
All feelings flow into heart’s furnace
When we’re twisted in the clutches of fate
we need to be unfelt, unknown and undeterred
To fight for justice without losing confidence
An inevitable struggle to pull life…
Though all rivers merge in the ocean,
All peace burn in the ashes of arrogance
All dreams vanish in the clouds of deception
All hopes nipped in the garden of hypocrisy
When we’re crushed in the fangs of problems
we need to forget, forgive and proceed…
To tread towards tomorrow without losing patience
An inevitable walk to push life…
Though all that glitters is not gold
All discussions remain futile
All justice end up in vain
All values lost in the vast sands of desert
All bonds lost track on the island of chess
When we’re drowned in the tsunamis of shame
We need to be quiet, cool and strong …
To face the battle without losing hope
An inevitable war to win life…
asked about Love:
Love is magical and infinite: one can fill oceans with it, win lives by it, can show wonders and splendours. Love is like a concrete foundation on which everything else is built, though one shares it to all his bonds., it doesn’t get drained, one always finds some space to fill it. As one grows, his love to people and things, also grows and expands, perspective to love… shifts from mundane to divine.
asked about Peaces:
Life revolves round peace: at home, in life, mind, work places, society and the world. Where Peace is… there Heaven is.
Path of Peace
Went an extra mile
Through sands of poetry
Painted my words
With flesh and blood
Checked them twice
With heart and soul
Churned them deep
With love and affection
Reared well with faith
Filled them with care
Into the pen of my life
Fused with all elements
Mused all into fine rhythms
Lit the fire within
Let the senses sing
Blissful precious songs
To inspire, to move, to touch
The lives of near and dear
To make heaven out of hell
To soar high on the path of peace
Her ‘sigh of smile’
Being philanthropic in nature, i feel the sufferings of people; kids, old people, i give my unconditional love and affection in all possible ways and pray for the entire humanity.
Standing before God
Folding my hands…
I pray Dear God…’See that all are well and good’
‘Let the world sail smoothly…’
Never prayed for personal things.

sigh of smile” and when I see my students reached their goals; Principals , Directors, Heads , CEOs and Secretaries of Multinational Companies and Institutions I feel, I’ve climbed Mt Everest!” But according to her, as an individual, “there’s still much to be done, the word completeness can only come when i breathe no more.”
