Telugu crosses State border with Teluguvani

Chennai-based organisation teaches the language in neighbouring States

HYDERABAD: The Chennai-based Teluguvani, involved for the last year and a half in propagation of the language in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Orissa, Maharasthtra and Chhattisgarh, on Sunday launched its third batch of classes for Telugu teacher-trainers here.

P. Venugopala Reddy, the expelled BJP leader who is the managing trustee, said Teluguvani had launched a special package to coach the trainers. They will teach Telugus in Tamil Nadu and other States how to read and write the language. The first batch of trainers has already started working in Tamil Nadu with the cooperation of Kuppam-based Dravidian University.

Ten-day classes

The launch of ten-day classes for 14 trainers from Tamil Nadu, with the assistance of Hyderabad Central University, marks another step in taking Telugu closer to the hearts of those who cherish the language, but cannot read and write it. The classes commenced in the presence of A.B.K. Prasad, chairman, AP Official Language Commission, Reddy Shyamala, professor, Telugu University, Ramanarasimham, head, Department of Telugu, HCU, who is also a Teluguvani trustee, A. Manjulatha, Vice-Chancellor, Telugu University, and K. Ramachandra Murthy, Editor, "Andhra Jyothi". C. Dharma Rao, president, Telugu Bashodyama Samakhya (movement for promotion of Telugu language), presided. The trainers will move to the Central University where the valedictory is scheduled for September 29.
