“Who are We as Telugu People?” Nalamotu Chakravarthy (1 of 3)
February 9th, 2010 marks the third anniversary of Mohana Muralee GaanaLahari.
Who are we as Telugu people? What are our origins? What are ups and downs in our history? Where did we come from and where have we been? For a while I wanted to cover I wanted to do a show on this topic. I have some knowledge on this subject but it does not measure up to that of Nalamotu Chakravarthy. He was kind enough to participate on the 3rd anniversary show of MMGL to talk to the listeners about this exact subject.
In this first part of a three part series, Chakravarthy and I talked about how “Andhras” is not a bad word as some hate-mongering Telangana separatists have been projecting. In fact, all Telugu speaking are Andhras – not just people from coastal Andhra Pradesh. Telangana is a name given to the land of Andhras by Muslim rulers.
This chit-chat covered a bit on Satavahanas, Brahma Naidu, and Kakateeyas. If you ask me, this is a must listen podcast for every Telugu person.
