Note :

Telugu Language Day is celebrated annually on August 29 in the Indian southern state of Andhra Pradesh. Telugu is one of India’s six classical languages, spoken in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Telugu, a Dravidian language, is also the official language of the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
 
The language is known as “The Italian of the East" because Niccol de Conti, a 16th-century Italian traveller, discovered that the Telugu language, like the Italian language, finishes with vowels. Telugu Language Day was chosen on August 29 to coincide with the birthday of Telugu poet Gidugu Venkata Ramamurthy. During British rule, he was a Telugu writer and one of the first contemporary Telugu linguists and social visionaries.
 
Ramamurthy was born on August 29, 1863, in the town of Parvatalapeta, Srikakulam. When he was around 12 years old, his father died. He studied privately and graduated from high school. Ramamurthy had studied numerous languages and was well-versed in linguistic theory. Ramamurthy’s efforts resulted in Telugu becoming a standard language.
