University to retain Telugu name

Introduction of Bill to anglicise name in Assembly deferred


  • SPMVV Vice-Chancellor favoured change
  • Argument was that non-Telugu speakers could understand it better
  • Said it would ensure hassle-free acceptance of university certificates

  • HYDERABAD: The Official Languages Commission has won the battle against the move to anglicise the name of the Tirupati-based Sri Padmavathi Mahila Viswa Vidyalayam (SPMVV).

    It has prevailed upon the Government to defer introduction of a Bill in the Assembly to change the name to Sri Padmavathi Women's University as proposed by its Vice-Chancellor, Veena Noble Dass. Ms. Noble favoured the renaming to facilitate better understanding by non-Telugu people, especially foreigners, and to facilitate hassle-free acceptance of the university's certificates.

    The varsity argued that the absence of the word `university' in SPMVV was doing it more harm than good in the international arena, as it was being taken for a small institute.

    Accordingly, the Government had drafted a Bill for introduction in the Assembly by the Minister for Higher Education, P. Koteswara Rao. The Telugu Bhasha Vikaasa Udhyamaman of Chittoor district launched an agitation against what it described as the `insult' meted out to the Telugu language. The Commission Chairman, A.B.K. Prasad, lodged an objection against the change. Ms. Noble on Monday informed Mr. Prasad that the draft Bill had been scrapped respecting the sentiments expressed by the student community and the commission. However, the English name of the university -- Sri Padmavathi Women's University -- will be used in brackets below the Telugu name.

    We work like a horse.
    We eat like a pig.
    We like to play chicken.
    You can get someone's goat.
    We can be as slippery as a snake.
    We get dog tired.
    We can be as quiet as a mouse.
    We can be as quick as a cat.
    Some of us are as strong as an ox.
    People try to buffalo others.
    Some are as ugly as a toad.
    We can be as gentle as a lamb.
    Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
    Some of us drink like a fish.
    We can be as proud as a peacock.
    A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
    You can get a frog in your throat.
    We can be a lone wolf.
    But I'm having a whale of a time!

    You have a riveting web log
    and undoubtedly must have
    atypical & quiescent potential
    for your intended readership.
    May I suggest that you do
    everything in your power to
    honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
    Designer/Architect as well
    as your revering audience.
    As soon as we acknowledge
    this Supreme Designer/Architect,
    Who has erected the beauteous
    fabric of the universe, our minds
    must necessarily be ravished with
    wonder at this infinate goodness,
    wisdom and power.


    Please remember to never
    restrict anyone's opportunities
    for ascertaining uninterrupted
    existence for their quintessence.

    There is a time for everything,
    a season for every activity
    under heaven. A time to be
    born and a time to die. A
    time to plant and a time to
    harvest. A time to kill and
    a time to heal. A time to
    tear down and a time to
    rebuild. A time to cry and
    a time to laugh. A time to
    grieve and a time to dance.
    A time to scatter stones
    and a time to gather stones.
    A time to embrace and a
    time to turn away. A time to
    search and a time to lose.
    A time to keep and a time to
    throw away. A time to tear
    and a time to mend. A time
    to be quiet and a time to
    speak up. A time to love
    and a time to hate. A time
    for war and a time for peace.


    Best wishes for continued ascendancy,

    P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
    that the common culture of my youth
    is gone for good. It was hollowed out
    by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
    then splintered beyond hope of repair
    by the emergence of the web-based
    technologies that so maximized and
    facilitated cultural choice as to make
    the broad-based offerings of the old
    mass media look bland and unchallenging
    by comparison."
