The Hindu, Hyderabad, September 19, 2014

The Telangana Artist Forum (TAF) has regretted that in Andhra, Sri Venkateshwara, Yogi Vemana and Nagarjuna Universities, 85 per cent of the seats are reserved for local and 15 per cent for non-locals, while in sharp contrast, 64 per cent of seats in the Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture and Fine Arts University here, were given to students from Seemandhra.

Condemning the discrimination, they have decided to take the issue to the notice of the Chief Ministers of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana and also to the Education Ministers concerned.

On Thursday, they submitted a representation to the Vice-Chairman, Telangana State Council of Higher Education, Prof. Mallesh.

TAF Convenor Ramana Reddy demanded that counselling in the Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture and Fine Arts University be stopped, till justice is done to students from Telangana.

Since the College of Fine Arts was formed by the Nizam in 1933, over 80 per cent of the students were from Telangana and after it was merged with the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University in 1972, regional reservations were introduced with 36 per cent for Telangana and the remaining for Seemandhra. The continuance of this age-old exploitation even after Telangana is formed is affecting the prospects of its students and is quashing their dreams of becoming artists and architects, Mr. Reddy said.

HYDERABAD: Malavath Poorna, aged just 13 years and 11 months, from Nizamabad district became the youngest girl ever to conquer the Mt Everest when she reached the highest peak in the world at 6 a.m. Sunday.

On the 52nd day of her expedition, an excited Poorna ran the last 100 meters to create history. Sadhanapally Anand Kumar (18) from Khammam, who was accompanying her, followed in her footsteps 45 minutes later.  The duo, both students of the AP Social Welfare Residential Education Institutions’ Society (APSWREIS), belong to weaker sections. Poorna’s parents work as agriculture labourers, while Anand’s father is a cycle mechanic. Secretary of APSWREIS, RS Praveen Kumar told reporters, “The students’ achievement is a morale booster to all kids who are below the poverty line. Even the poorest will excel if given an opportunity.”
