Telugus' National Anthem

Maa Telugu Thallki official anthem

Chittoor district centenary celebration at Tirupathi

Chittoor Collectorate has clarified on Friday that the district centenary celebrations will be kick-started by singing the State anthem ‘Maa Telugu Thalliki' without fail. Single district produced as many as four Chief Ministers.

Two Chief Ministers of the then composite Madras State were from Chittoor, while two others wielded the reins of the present Andhra Pradesh.

The Raja of Panagal, Panaganti Ramarayaningar, was the Chief Minister of Madras Presidency from July 1921 to December 1926.

Though born in Srikalahasti in a Zamindari family, he did his schooling in Madras and mastered both Sanskrit and Dravidian languages with élan.

He got attracted to the Justice Party and served as its president for three years from 1925.

After ascending the throne in July 1921, the Raja worked for the uplift of the oppressed classes. In recognition of his services towards the development of Theagaroya Nagar as a commercial hub in Chennai, the park providing lung space in the otherwise concrete jungle was named as ‘Panagal Park'.

‘Diwan Bahadur' Bollini Munuswamy Naidu, a native of Vepanjeri, accepted the Chief Minister's post in October 1930 and served only for two years, before stepping down due to internal turbulence.

The practising advocate was one of the early members of Justice Party and had even served as its president between 1928 and 1932.

Two Chittoorians served as the Chief Minister after Andhra Pradesh was carved out on linguistic basis. Nara Chandrababu Naidu, hailing from Naravaripalle in Chandragiri constituency, started his political career as a student leader.

He joined the Congress and later the Telugu Desam Party to become a legislator, but what turned his career around was his wedding to N.Bhuvaneswari, daughter of the TDP supremo N.T. Rama Rao. Parting ways with NTR, he went on to become the Chief Minister in 1995 and served up to 2004.

The present incumbent Nallari Kirankumar Reddy, who took up the reins in the midst of chaotic conditions, is the fourth from Chittoor. Though ‘technically' hailing from a family of landlords in Kalikiri mandal, Kiran was born and brought up in Hyderabad.

He was elected from Vayalpad in 1989, 1999 and 2004, but saw a crushing defeat in 1994. With Vayalpad constituency vanishing due to the delimitation exercise, he got elected from Pileru in 2009

What a shame demanding Dowry for Love wedding

Chiru's daughter accuses husband of harassment

Faces problem: Sreeja and her husband Shirish.

Film star-turned politician Chiranjeevi's second daughter, Sreeja, approached the police on Monday alleging that her husband and mother-in-law had been harassing her and demanding additional dowry of Rs. 50 lakh.

The woman police station of the Hyderabad Detective Department registered a case against her husband, Shirish, and mother-in-law under Section 498-A (subjecting woman to cruelty by husband, in-laws) and relevant provisions of the Dowry Prohibition Act based on her complaint.

Hyderabad Police Commissioner A.K. Khan said Sreeja alleged that her husband and mother-in-law had been ill-treating and pestering her for additional dowry for quite some time. Sreeja fell in love with Shirish and married him three years ago at Arya Samaj without informing her family members.

The couple was blessed with a daughter. Though initially Sreeja's parents and family members expressed displeasure over the marriage, they eventually patched up.

“Sreeja charged that Shirish harassed her by not sending her to her parents' house to attend a cousin's marriage. She also accused him of demanding additional dowry for past one year,” the Commissioner said.

Sreeja claimed that, unable to bear the harassment, she returned to her parents' house a week ago and lodged the complaint.

Telugu films should appeal to Intellectuals & Society

Make films that appeal to intellectuals, society'

In an era of growing film award functions that have become a show of glamour, the awards given out by A.P. Cinegoers' Association stand out.

The awards function held on Sunday was thankfully not dominated by glamour and it was a stage where performers were given more importance. The Andhra Pradesh Cinegoers' Association's 39th and 40th annual film awards presentation programme held at the Lalithakala Thoranam was memorable for the film lovers as they were able to see the stars of different eras on the same stage.

Former Minister K. Rosaiah inaugurated the programme, while Parliamentary Standing Committee Chairman T. Subbarami Reddy was the chief guest. Yesteryear actress Gitanjali and Nandamuri Balakrishna made their way on to the stage amidst applause from the gathering. There was a huge roar at the venue when Nandamuri Balakrishna's name was announced for the best actor award for ‘Pandurangadu' film for the year 2008.

Dasari Narayana Rao bagged the best actor award for ‘Mestri' film for the year 2009.Mr. Rosaiah felicitated ace film producer D. Rama Naidu and presented Sobhan Babu Memorial Award to him. Actors Murali Mohan, Gitanjali and Vijay Chander were presented with Life Time Achievement awards.

Addressing on the occasion, Mr. Rosaiah said such programmes should be organised regularly as they boost the confidence of artistes.

T. Subbarami Reddy urged actors and producers to emphasise on quality in movies rather spending crores of rupees on the films.

He further said the Telugu industry was not bagging national awards and it was time for directors and actors to introspect and make films that appeal to the intellectuals and the society too.

What a sad day for Telugus - 10/03/2011

The former chief minister, N.T. Rama Rao, had erected 33 statues of the famous personalities of Andhra Pradesh in 1986 and the poetic descriptions were written by the noted poet C. Narayana Reddy.

Telangana agitators pulled down of some of the the Greatest Telugu personalilties during the Million March on Thursday (10/3/2011) at Tank Bund and threw them into Hussainsagar. It all started with the demolition of Status of Brahmanaidu’s , Vijayanagar king Srikrishnadevaraya, the Adhikavi Nannaiah and Errapragada, who translated the great epic of Mahabharat into Telugu, saint and composer Annamacharya who penned keertanas for Lord Venkateswara, composer and poet Kshetrayya, and architect of Kuchipudi dance, Mahakavi Gurram Joshua and Siddendra Yogi were pulled down and thrown into the Hussainsagar.

The statues of Brahmanaidu, the ruler of Palnadu, Salivahana, the first emperor of Andhra, Gurujada Appa Rao, writer and reformist who had written Kanya Sulkham, Sir Arthur Cotton, the man behind the Godavari barrage, Tripuraneni Ramaswamy Choudhary, famous reformist and rationalist and Ballari Raghava, the noted stage artiste and the statue of Siddendra Yogi

I wish media gives more importance to news that can do more good to mankind and the state as a whole instead of splitting the states. Looking at the news daily makes me sad as I do not see anybody comming forward in India to do good for people around them.

C P Brown Academy

The name of C.P. Brown was chosen for the Academy in celebration of and as a tribute to the contributions of the legendary Charles Philip Brown (1798-1884) for the preservation and promotion of the Telugu language and literature.

The many monumental works created by C P Brown on diverse subjects mark him out as an outstanding and versatile scholar. The Telugu people owe him a debt of gratitude for his service to the language and its dialects. Brown has truly earned a special place for himself in the history of Telugu people.

The Logo

The Academy has adopted a unique logo which has three Lingas, representing the Trilinga Desam, the Land of Telugus. Trilinga appears to have become Telugu, in course of time. The three letters in the centre are taken from a relic of the Amaravathi stupa. The letters, in Brahmi script, are Na, ga, and bu. Scholars opine that Na-ga-bu is a Telugu word, equivalent to Na-ga-mu (meaning serpent) in todays Telugu. This is thought to be the earliest Telugu word, captured in Brahmi Script in an inscription in Prakrit language.
