Hyderabad: Writer, scholar and professor Kasireddy Venkata Reddy suggests that literary feats such as ‘Ashtavadhanam’ should be made an academic subject for schools and colleges exams to create interest among students over Telugu language.

Besides having students learn Telugu and its importance, the move will help in improving concentration levels, he added. Literary feats such as ‘Ashtavadhanam’ are all about memory, concentration and other aspects.

In the past, pandits in an effort to recite the veda mantras regularly, memorised them, and came up with the concept of Ashtavadhanams and Sathavadhanams, Professor Reddy said.

While this can be done at academic level, he also stressed the need for parents to actively play a crucial role in promoting Telugu at home.

“They have to get their children to these conferences as it will create curiosity and that’s how interest begins. English is important but Telugu is more necessary as without mother tongue one cannot develop,” said Reddy.

Language should bridge chasm between people and and fuel bonding, Reddy added.
