Pitiable State of Spoken Telugu on TV 

In Telugu, as we all  know that  there are some alphabets which are   required to be  pronounced with a little force or emphasis called “vattulu” like bha, dha, tha, kha, gha, etc.,  There are many Telugu words with the such alphabets. For example we want to say ‘ government of Andhra pradesh’ in Telugu it will “ andhra pradesh prabhutvamu’ .


It is highly unfortunate that we find most of the Telugu spoken either on news, serials and their programmes on the Telugu TV channels have given a go bye to this basic requirement of Telugu pronunciation. Unless this basic requirement of Telugu pronunciation is taken proper care, the future of this great language seems very bleak.It is high time that all agencies/organizations who are involved in protecting this great language take up this on an urgent basis.

    I agree. Those who are older speak much better telugu than today’s television personalities and cinema actors.

    Also where are the strong female role models in telugu cinema? I wonder if a movie like Chak De India would even have a telugu audience. Of course, that would provide a strong female role model image and that is not popular in Andhra along with a swaccha telugu accent it has disappeared.
