Telangana Culture Shall Be Part Of Syllabus: Experts. Experts have called for the inclusion of Telangana culture, language and local history in the syllabus of all classes.
Hyderabad: Experts have called for the inclusion of Telangana culture, language and local history in the syllabus of all classes. Speaking at a round table conference on ‘History of Telangana warriors in lessons’ organised by Telangana Writers’ Forum here to commemorate the sixth death anniversary of Bhimreddy Narsimha Reddy on Friday, they strongly felt that a concerted struggle needs to be carried out to make the syllabus Telangana-specific.
Eminent Educationist Chukka Ramaiah called upon the teachers and lecturers to guide the youth on which path the state should traverse. “Syllabus shall not be in accordance with the whims and fancies of powers that be. Till now, the people of Telangana do not have a history of their own. They were subjugated to conspiracies. Now new lessons based on the real struggle, culture and identity shall be written. There must be a link between the language of our households and the lessons that are taught at schools. Lessons shall be prepared after taking into consideration district-wise language and dialect” he suggested.
Prof Haragopal opined that lessons shall be in such a way that they must create self-respect and not hatred. “Syllabus shall include Telangana Armed Struggle. Children should be told that Telangana people have not only fought against Razakars but also against Hindu feudal lords. The lives and sacrifices of people like Bhimreddy, Prof Jayashankar, Balagopal and SR Sankaran shall be included in the syllabus” Haragopal said.
The meeting made resolutions such as establishment of memorials of martyrs in every school, history of Telangana leaders who waged war against feudalism, teaching in people’s language, lessons on Telangana culture and language etc.
The meet was chaired by writer Juluri Gowri Shankar and several experts on various fronts have participated.
