Vemana is one of the most popular and beloved poets in Telugu language. His intellect, simplicity and naturalness of expression, and originality render him special to all the Telugus, rich or poor, literate or illiterate. There is controversy over when and where Vemana lived. After a lot of research and debate, scholars established that he was born in a farmer’s family and lived in the 17th century–probably born in 1652–and passed away in the early decades of the 18th century. He did not disclose his family name. Worshipper of Siva, he must be a jangam(a member of the sudra sect, usually Saivaite, but also largely dissenter of thetraditional religion). Many of the poems were supposed to be composed in thelatter half of the 17th century. Based on the dialect and idiom used in theverses, it is suggested that Vemana belonged to Gandikota in Kandavolu (presentKurnool) district or Kondavedu in Cuddapah (Kadapa) district in the Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh
The makutam (refrain) has been subject to varied and occasionally subjective interpretations. Some have even suggested alternatives to the popular, widelyknown refrain, Vishvadabhirama vinuravema. There have been several apocryphal stories about a person called Abhirama himself, but they do not stand critical scrutiny. The possible meaning of the refrain could be: Beloved ofthe All Giver, Vema, listen.
