Ahead of the prestigious 4th World Telugu Conference, organisers are keen on creating the right ambience, festive mood and most importantly, a participatory perspective by holding a series of programmes at the village, mandal, division and district levels.

The idea is to rekindle the ‘Telugu spirit’ among masses and restore lost glory to the language. As an initiative considered parallel to the Tirupati event, the officials are contemplating documenting noteworthy historical events, places of interest and personalities in a village/region tobring out ‘local history’. Such district-level records would be chronicled and brought out as a book.

The marathon meeting held at Mahati auditorium here on Wednesday, with district Minister Galla Arunakumari, Collector Solomon Arokiaraj, TTD Executive Officer L.V. Subrahmanyam, Cultural Affairs honorary advisor K.V. Ramanachary, secretary G. Balaramaiah and Director Rallabandi Kavitha Prasad laid stress on involving the public at large to make the event a success.

The village secretary, VROs and VAOs and Mahila Samakhya members will be roped in to conduct rallies to spread awareness on the importance of adhering to Telugu as the spoken language. Kolatam, Bhajans and Gobbiyala patalu will be propagated.

Mr. Subrahmanyam saw the need to hold the event to unravel the literary, cultural and conversational facets of the language, while Dr. Ramanachary appealed to every individual to wholeheartedly participate. Madanapalle Sub-Collector Hari Kiran, RDO O. Seshaiah, DEO Pratap Reddy, DRDA Project Director Anil Kumar took part.
