    Jayaraj, who is 60 years old and originally from old Warangal (now Mahabubabad district), has overcome many hardships since his childhood and achieved fame as a poet.

He has also written songs about environmental conservation and the significance of nature. Through his literature, Jayaraj explores the intricate relationship between mankind and nature. Many of his books have already gained popularity.
