Officials turned singers on Thursday to promote Telugu language during the cultural programmes which began as part of Prapancha Telugu Mahsabalu. Additional Joint Collector RS Rajakumar sang ‘Maa Telugu Talliki Mallepudanda….Maa Kannatalliki Mangalaratulu’. District Rural Development Agency Project Director P.Rajanikanta Rao enthralled audience by singing ‘Telugu Jati Manadi…Ninduga Velugu Jati manadi’ song. Advocate Usharani sang ‘Jolapata’ to remember the traditional Telugu songs.
Interestingly, both officials and others sang the songs voluntarily to explain the importance of Telugu language and Telugu tradition. Srikakulam District Legal Services Authority Secretary Moka Suvarnaraju urged the parents to encourage children to learn mother tongue which could help them to understand anything quickly. He felt that kids could learn English quickly only when they were able to understand Telugu language properly.
SC Corporation Executive Director Ch.Mahalakshmi, BC Welfare Officer Nagamani, JCI-Femina Zone Director Geeta Srikanth, JCI-Femina Srikakulam wing president Paidi Rajani and others also spoke in the meeting. Children from various schools and colleges performed traditional dances and proved their talent in song competitions.
