Call to promote Telugu language

Former energy secretary E.A.S. Sarma speaking at a meting in the city on Saturday.

VISAKHAPATNAM: The ways and means to enhance the use of Telugu in the wake of its obtaining the classical language status, were discussed at a meeting organised by Visakha Sahithi, literary association, here on Saturday evening.

Initiating the discussion, president of Visakha Sahiti, K. Malayavasini who was a retired Telugu professor in Andhra University, lamented the increased use of English in day to day affairs, even at home. The situation had come to such a pass that the officialdom as well as the parents need to be convinced on the importance of the use of Telugu. “We have to bring about the change at both ends and also the general public in order to save our Telugu language and bequeath the rich heritage to our children,” she said. She also felt the time was most opportune to patronize the rich cultural heritage, folklore, poetry, drama and other art forms.

Another retired Telugu professor of AU and noted scholar Vedula Subrahmanya Sastry suggested making study through Telugu medium compulsory in high school which would automatically provide the strong foundation for the language to develop. Former Energy Secretary EAS Sarma wanted all the government orders to be issued only in Telugu so that it could be easily understood by the lay people. He felt there was a need to bring pressure on the Government through a public movement for the purpose. Praja Spandana president CS Rao, Ganapathiraju Narasimha Raju and others spoke.
