అన్నమయ్య కీర్తనలు reflect the greatness of Telugu

TIRUPATI: Telugu is one of the ancient languages in the world. Its richness is amply evident in అన్నమాచార్య సంకీర్తనాలు (Annamacharya Sankeerthanas) written several hundred years ago.

Saint composer Annamayya wrote 32,000 Sankeerthanas in pure Telugu, without using even a single word from other languages, including Sanskrit, said speakers, highlighting the uniqueness of the language at the తెలుగు భాషా బ్రహ్మోత్సవాలు (Telugu Bhasha Brahmotsavams) today.

They stressed the need for conserving the treasures of the great language from the influence of Western culture and English language.

Kamisetty Srinivasulu said Annamayya literary works reflect the greatness of Telugu. The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) is bringing out a Telugu dictionary for some words used in Sankeerthanas.

On the fourth day of the nine-day event, some thought provoking discussions took place.

Talks on ‘Telugu language in writings of poet Tikkana’ by K Venkata Lakshminarasimham, ‘Devotion in Bhagavatham’ by Rallabandi Kavitha Prasad, ‘Richness of language in Prabhandams’ by O Sivashankar Rao, and ‘Stray verses’ (entertaining conversation) and Adroitness’ by K Varaprasad were inspiring.

Palepu Varijarani spoke on ‘Sathakam and its use’ and Medimalli Ravikumar on short poems.

తెలుగు సంస్కృతి వికాస వేదిక (Telugu Samskruthi Vikasa Vedika), which is organising the fete, felicitated TG Kamala Devi, a noted playback singer, and Savitramma, wife of famous singer late Ghantasala, along with renowned writers Samala Sadasiva and Chalasani Prasad.

Vedika president B Karunakar Reddy and others were present. Cultural programmes were presented by noted artistes in the evening.
