Anayath Krishna Pisharody

It is a historical fact that the famous Sanskrit scholar, Thiruvegappura Anayath Krishna Pisharody was considered as the Guru(teacher) of Manavedan Raja, the then Zamorin Raja of Kozhikode who conceived the classical dance drama Krishnanattam based on his text Krishnageethi. Mahaakavi Ulloor mentioned about this in his Kerala Sahithya Charithram(chapter 33). Manavedan also mentioned about his Guru Anayath Krishna Pisharody in his text Poorvabharatha Champu. A commentary to Poorvabharatha Champu, Krishneeyam, was composed apparently by Anayath Krishna Pisharoty.
