New Year wishes to Telugu folk

By Evangeline Majawat


KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak wished the Telugu community in Malaysia an auspicious start to their new year today.

The Telugu community, the second largest Indian ethnic group in the country after the Tamils, celebrates Ugadi today, which is the first day of the year according to the lunar calendar.

Najib said he hoped this year's celebration will strengthen ties not only among the Telugus but also among all races.

"As a caring government, we'll continue to support efforts to improve the welfare of the Telugu community so that they, too, will be able to enjoy the prosperity."

MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu, in a Bernama report, also wished the Telugu community a Happy New Year. He hoped that the community would remain united to face the many challenges.

"We have to strengthen unity to ensure the Indian community's survival and future.

"Together as 1Malaysian Indians, we can achieve our dreams and prosper economically and socially," he said.

Samy Vellu said Malaysia was blessed to have a multireligious and multicultural society, adding that the people had learned to respect the practice of all religions.

In a similar message, Human Resource Minister and MIC vice-president Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam said tolerance and acceptance must be made part of life in multiracial Malaysia.

"A new year means new goals. As we move towards a new economic model, we must equip ourselves with the right attitude and education to embrace the changes that will take place."

Similar to traditions practised during Deepavali by the Indians in general, the Telugus will wake up early to take oil baths before seeking blessings from elders in their families. Later in the evening, they will go to the nearest temple to offer prayers.

Telugu Association of Malaysia Vice-President S. Venkatesh said one of the most important traditions which was still widely practised was the consumption of Ugadi Pachadi, a concoction of six spices and ingredients. The ingredients -- jaggery, salt, neem flowers, tamarind, young mango and green chilli -- represent the ups and downs of life. "Life is considered to be balanced only when it's a mixture of joy, sadness, anger and peace

The main stars of the film are Rana Daggubati, Richa Gangopadhyay and Priya Anand and the main reason why this Telugu film is so hyped up is because Rana happens to be the grandson of D Rama Naidu and son of D Suresh Babu. This is also his first film as an actor.

The movie “Leader” was premiered in India on 19th Feb 2010..

Leader is about the wide disparity that exists between an ordinary politician and a ‘Leader’. Even though there are no physical fights in this film (like most Telugu movies), there is a lot of drama involved.

Telugu TV news channels misleading reports of Andhra Pradesh

Message from:
Dear Enkate,
Telugu TV news channels killing Hyderabad Image

Over the past couple of weeks, some Telugu news channels have been indulging in severely misleading reporting about Hyderabad in their bid for high TRPs through sensationalism.

They have been making it look like the whole of Hyderabad is burning, while in reality incidents of unrest have been happening in a small part of Hyderabad.

Hyderabad has already been hurt by the incidents of the past 3 months - the last thing we need now is irresponsible reporting that makes things look bad even when they really aren't any more.

We at believe that a good part of the problem is being caused by irresponsible reporting by the electronic media, that tends to hype the smallest of incidents to monstrous proportions.

Somebody has to stop them and their competitive sensationalism - and it has to be the citizens of this city.

We have all enjoyed the growth of this city into an IT and biotech hub, and the jobs, lifestyle and dignity it gave us.

It's time for us to now give back, and save the city from reckless TV coverage that is killing Brand Hyderabad when the city is back to being just as safe and cool as it always was.

Here's how to do that. Post your protests on the forum below, and once the number of messages crosses 100, we at will take prints of each message and send them to the CEOs of all those TV channels we believe are doing damaging reporting: is one of India's largest local guides, with close to 3,00,000 unique visits a month now - and every post you make instantly gets onto our home page. It's the fastest and best way to get heard about this issue.

Protest now, and together we citizens of Hyderabad will all make them stop the damaging reporting soon.

The Team
