Way back in 1971 when I was 16 years old and studying in Form 4 at SM Khir Johari, Sungai Sumun, Hutan Melintang, school badminton partner Sri Naidu who is now living in Kuala Trengganu known as Risal Naidu and I made an attempt to see the Headmaster who was then En. Ismail bin ...... to allow the POL classes for Telugu language. But before we went to see Dr Iswar who was then was in Form 1 assisted to gather details of all Telugu students of the school then. The Headmaster briefed us that there is no allocation or budget or lot to allow teaching of Telugu language as POL. However, he promised us that he would write to the Education Departments concern. Hence, in the 1972 the starts of teaching POL classes begin for Telugu language around the country where ever there was request by at least 15 students/ parents for teaching Telugu POL classes.

From very first day, I was one who prepared the TAM Constitution from the Draft given by Dr A. C Apparao who was then President. I was then the newly formed Klang branch chairman. Later Late R.
