Let Us Know Telugu
Original: Dr. Dwa. Na. Sastry
Shri Nanduri Ramamohana rao as the editor and Late Thripuraneni Sreenivas, in the Sunday edition of ‘Andhrajyoti’ made me write a Heading by name “this is our Telugu”.. Many have appreciated this heading. "you are expressing the language science in a simple way..” everyone said. In fact, the original one in Telugu form became immensely popular that which encouraged me now to translate it into English through Mrs. Sailajamithra who is already a noted bi-lingual poetess and writer who after reading original Telugu version expressed her readiness to translate to which I loose no opportunity expressing it as privilege to me.
However, those who are already familiar with the scientific methods of a language alone knew the various points in this book. Knowledge which I gained after reading many books, write-ups, newspapers, recalling and exploring what are all told by our predecessors, after all reminiscent knowledge that I have in me are carefully presented in a simple language to facilitating an easy understanding by one and all. At the same time, I do not intend to reach this out in a technical presentation way nor like a grammar session which I fully believe that readers would catch up, shortly after the start...I would also not boost of zero mistakes in the contents and would request for suggestions and corrections from readers which are solicited with open mind...I firmly trust that this book shall become very handy and useful to not only people of Telugu origin but also to the people of diverse languages across the globe.
