Today is Telugu Language Day29th of August is celebrated as Telugu Language day in Andhra Pradesh every year. This day happens to be the birthday of the Telugu poet Gidugu Venkata Ramamurthy. He was one of the popular linguists during British rule. He is instrumental in making spoken Telugu language very popular. On this day the Ap government will organise many events and honour the famous persons who brought value to the Language.
Telugu is the fourth most spoken language in India and the 15th most spoken language in the world. Every single word in this language ends with a vowel sound. That is why this language is hailed as the 'Italian of the East'. Rabindranath Tagore hailed Telugu as the sweetest Indian language.
I wish all the Telugu speaking members of ISC a happy " Telugu Language Day".
