Garikapati Narasimha Rao is quite popular for his Avadhanam and Pravachanams. In fact, he is one of the oldest pravchanam speakers in the public forum. Taking everyone by surprise, Garikapati has announced his retirement. He reasoned that one should retire when one is in good form and when one is at best. He said the move is to cut down his public speaking. He said he would like to turn inwards and wants to restrict his life outwards. Garikapati said he would close his eyes and would pay attention to his inwards more here after.
Garikapati has made these startling revelation at the Koti Deepotsavam. He said the decision is completely voluntary without anyone's influence. He sought apology from his followers, supporters for hurting them.
However, Garikapati said he would continue the TV programs for a while as he had accepted them much before and walking out of them midway isn't fair. He said he would complete them as per his prior commitment and said he wouldn't continue after completing them. He also said that he wouldn't accept any new offers for Pravachanam
