Telangana: History and economy
G Naga Sridhar, Business Line, March 15, 2011

If the Vijayanagara ruler Sri Krishnadevaraya (AD 1509-29), who strived to further the Telugu language and culture, was alive today, he would have jumped into the Hussain Sagar lake in Hyderabad. The reason: He would been thrown into despair at the nihilistic cultural attitude displayed by a section of the pro-Telanagana activists, who destroyed 18 statues (out of 33) of legendary personalities of Telugu land during the ‘Million March’ on March 10 in support of Telangana State, just because they did not hail from what now is being termed Telangana.

The statues of great saint-composer Annamayya, 19th Century social reformer Kandukuri Veeresalingam and Sir Arthur Cotton (1803-1899), the first British engineer to envisage a complete system of irrigation and canals for India, too faced the same fate. Not that these statues are rare artefacts. They were sculpted and installed just about 25 years ago. But what is alarming is the attitude that refuses to see the distinction between blind jingoism and a sagacious sense of regionalism. (మరింత…)

Telangana million march on, ban orders in Hyderabad
Sify.com 7 March 2011

Hyderabad: The Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC) on Monday declared that it would go ahead with its million march to Hyderabad on March 10 to press the demand for separate statehood to Telangana while police have imposed ban orders and warned action against violators.

JAC convenor M. Kodandaram told reporters after a meeting of the steering committee that the march would begin in the afternoon instead of morning so that students appearing for intermediate examinations on that day face no hurdles.

JAC, comprising Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and other groups fighting for a separate state, met here Monday to discuss any possible postponement of the march in view of the appeals made by parents of the students appearing for examinations. (మరింత…)
