Now listen to a brief account of the master composers, whose pen-craft is lifting millions of people living in the four quarters of the world. The Suprabhatam was composed by Prativada Bhayanakara Anannacharyulu, deemed one of the seven sects of Vaishnavate apostles, like Viravalli, Dharmapuri, Pradivada Bhayanakara etc., Its popularity seems excelled the unexcelled glory of the scriptures as a matter of fact; for hardly one comes across any Hindu, who hasn't heard this song divine, although he is totally ignorant of its import, purport and content. That is the glory of Suprabhatam and memory of the composition.

About the lullaby songs sung, authorship is attributed to Annamacharya, the Nandaka aspect of Srimahavishnu, born to rekindle the dying embers of bhakti. He hailed from the village of Tallapaka in Cuddapah district of Andhra Pradesh. Lived between 1408-1543. Being a  a daivamsa sambhuta, he dedicated himself to authoring of Sankeerthanas, along with Satakas, Prabhandhas in both Telugu and Sanskrit. All but in praise of Lord Venkateswara, his Ishta Daivam and dedicated them to Him. on account of their superb diction. abundant imagery, matchless melody and peerless personal involvement, they are considered unique and won for him many honorific titles such as Padakavitha Pitamaha Sankeerthanacharya, Panchagama Sarvabhouma etc., Many celebrated composer-singers and Saint-seers like Purandara Dasa adored him ardently during his life time. And their parampara is keeping even to day that Ganajyoti. A glance at his past is a necessity. So look.

Several awe-some legends were so woven round his life that they deified him while living and even after his niryana. It is said that Mother Alimelumanga herself fed him, when swooned on his way to Tirumala, trekking all alone when he was barely eight years old. On another occasion, his stolen image of Venkateswara was restored to him by Anjaneya, when he wailed bitterly standing before his stone icon. To crown all, as it were, the iron fetters that bound him broke themselves and fell down on this petitioning to the Lord, when an egoistical earth and earthly king ordered imprisonment for not composing songs in praise of him. Leaving this court, he settled down at Tirumala and composed 32000 devotion-soaked songs, each one day, till his final exit from this world.
