SubhaI am very sorry to write in English as I did not know how to get the text in Telugu script. I do not bnloeg to this generation. But as a mother of two sons (one in 9th grade and one in 4th grade) studying in Hyd during 1980-88 can authentically tell that the deterioration of teaching Telugu language in schools started from that time. I remember taking up my frustration by arguing with the teacher how hard it is getting for the children to learn Telugu as no constructive method in teaching the language was being applied. The teacher was an young woman of 25 years and appeared confused. May be the management thought that teaching Telugu was an easy one as it is the mother tongue of the children and that grammer is not that important. The language was taught with no foundation, so naturally reached a state of decay in 25 years. It is exactly the way they taught Hindi to me when I was in school. I used to dread Hindi classes as I was not able to comprehend the change of verbs with the gender. And naturally I forgot that language once I completed high school. Now the current generation is being taught Telugu the way they learnt it and naturally they lost interest in teaching it as they themselves do not enjoy the beauty of the language. I still remember my telugu teacher and we were enthusiastically waiting for his class explaning the alamkarams, samasams and chandassu. Finding the ganas and vrithams of the poems was a thrill. My first son who was in 9th grade did not hear about them at all! So we do not have to blame the current parents and teachers for the deterioration of standard in teaching Telugu. The basic problem started 30-35 years back and people are opening their eyes once the ruin is complete.
