It is Malaysian Telugus' 50 years old dream coming true besides the gathering itself at PWTC, Kuala Lumpur, which is the very first time in the TAM's history(my dream). I believe it has all started, way back in 2006 when Dr.Achaiah Kumar, then Deputy President and me( Vice President & Education chairman) attending the Malayalees(Amma) Education Fund Dinner. WE were very impressed with their Amma Education fund system. After which, I proposed "Establishment of Telugu Education Fund" together with the bylaws at one of the TAM Executive Committee which was later approved at 36th Biennial Delegates' Conference held on 29 October, 2006 as to establish "Education Trust Fund for TAM". Later in 2007 the TAM new committee organised a Gala Dinner raising funds but that it has not being registered for the reason that total fund has not reached 1 million. However when TAM Mega Event "An Evening with Prime Minister was held on 8/10/2010 at PICC Putrajaya and 3 millions from PM had made it reality as "TAM Foundation"
