Indranganti Hanumachastry, a classical as well as a modern writer, scholar and literary critic, hailing from Ramachadrapuram made Kavali almost his home town. Hanumachastry, who is known for his magnum opus Daaksharamam, worked in Kavali College and his pen was a double edged one as he was a well at ease in Sanskrit as well Telugu.
A street in Kavali should be named after him by Kavali Municipality. It would be a best tribute to the literary stalwart.
Improve student strength
With a view to provide higher education to the rural poor students, the government opened a good number of junior colleges in villages.
In this context, if the government were to implement the District Educational Officer report, it has to close down over 200 colleges in the State. Now, the closure of the government junior colleges is denying higher education to rural poor. More so, the career and life of contract faculty would be adversely affected.
Hence, the government should explore the possibilities to improve student strength instead of closing down of the colleges.

The Brijesh Kumar Tribunal in its judgment has allowed Karnataka State to raise Almatti dam height to 525.256 m from existing 519.6 m.
It severely affects the releases to hydro-electric projects like Srisailam and Nagarjunasagar in the State. Further, it may delay the kharif season.
It will also jeopardise the ongoing irrigation projects in the State in Krishna basin. So, the people at the helm of affairs must appeal for a review of award with in three months in the Tribunal itself so as to protect the interests of people in the State.
