Steps to promote Telugu culture in Mauritius
Kakinada: The ఆంధ్ర లలిత కలా సమితి (Andhra Lalitha Kala Samithi) of Mauritius is making efforts to protect Telugu culture in the island nation and focussing on the need for every person in Andhra Pradesh to contribute his/her mite to enrich their State’s culture and heritage. Use of Telugu language played a crucial role in this endeavour, according to samithi president Sanjeeva Narasimha Appadu.
Speaking to reporters at Viswa Viznana Adhyatmika Peetham, Pithapuram, on Thursday in the presence of the peetham founder Umar Alisha, Mr. Appadu said the organisation was spreading awareness about the importance of protecting our culture and heritage through its quarterly magazine Andhra Lalitha Kala and conducting other events to promote the Telugu culture and its values throughout the world. Mr. Appadu said he keeps visiting Andhra Pradesh to coordinate the samithi’s activities and this was his second visit to Viswa Viznana Adhyatmika Peetham which was striving to spread the fragrance of Telugu culture and traditions.
Peetham founder Umar Alisha said his discourses were regularly broadcast by the Mauritius state radio which has Mr. Narasimha Appadu as its chief Telugu programmer. Mr. Alisha further opined that Telugu language should be promoted by every citizen of the State if it were to withstand the onslaught of Western influences.
