An e-way for NRI kids to learn Telugu

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, APRIL 14. This one is for Telugus who do not know Telugu, and those who are interested in learning the language with the help of an e-guru.

A one-stop site for information on `everything' related to Telugu and Andhra Pradesh, www.teluguone.com, a sister concern of the Hyderabad-based One Information Systems Ltd (OISL) has come out with a link for teaching Telugu online. The link has lessons right from basics to intensive language sessions, with animation and audio effects as well.

Launched in the presence of prominent industrialist and World Telugu Federation president, V. L. Indira Dutt, noted cine script writer, Paruchuri Gopalakrishna and producer M. S. Reddy among others at a colourful function here on Wednesday, the Telugu e-learning link is aimed at non-resident Indians, and according to OISL managing director K. Ravishankar, is the result of a long-pending demand from NRI parents.

With fixed monthly and yearly rates for the lessons, depending on the need, the link is one of the many ideas on the anvil for NRIs, Mr. Ravishankar said. Help in property related matters and medical facilities along with on-demand cinemas were also in the pipeline on the teluguone.com portal. Simultaneous releases on the Internet of movies of small-time artistes, who do not have the same kind of opportunities as super-stars for international releases are also being planned. The releases would be in countries other than India after discussions with the Producers' Council, he said.

The aim of the portal was to be a bridge between non-resident Telugus and their motherland with necessary services and information, Mr. Ravishankar added.

The portal already offers music lessons apart from links for audio/television serials and their stories, everything about Telugu movies and daily on-the-location clippings, news, politics, social help, audio/video reviews and updates and DVD/gift shops.
