Description

Gurajada Venkata Apparow and Gidugu Venkata Ramamurti are considered power - flashing twin lamps of the single lighthouse known as Modern Standard Telugu (MST).

In contrast to the present situation of the language in use, it was quite discouraging and disgusting, a hundred years ago. Gurajada and Gidugu had to fight many battles against the orthodox Pandits, who refused to heed to the logical arguments of the votaries of modern school of Telugu. Hence, G.V.Ramamurti had to undertake the trouble of writing this book, ‘A Memorandum on Modern Telugu’ for the benefit of the people at large.

This book consists of two broad sections, the main text and appendixes. The main text refutes forcefully the arguments levelled by some orthodox Pandits against MST. At the same time it points out the mistakes committed by learned scholars in using Old Telugu for Modern purposes and also explains the possible benefits of MST.

‘Appendix-A’ deals with Pronunciation, Declension, Conjugation etc. ‘Appendix-B’ deals with the sentiment of Erotics so dear to the heart of some of the orthodox Pandits. In the latter appendix, the author takes up each ‘Resolution’, one after the other, passed at the conference of Pandits held at Madras under the auspices of the then Telugu Academy, as reported in the newspaper ‘Krishna Patrika’. Each resolution quoted, is followed by the comments of the author.

This memorandum on Modern Telugu, well - composed by G.V. Ramamurti has got historic importance and hence it is most welcome for all of us. This was first published nearly a hundred years ago and never reprinted. I congratulate Dr. Vedagiri Rambabu for taking interest in bringing out the second edition.
