Responding to a post on Indian Diplomacy — the official twitter account of India’s Public Diplomacy, Ministry of External Affairs, Ms. Kavitha wanted it to include Jnanpeeth award winning “Vishwambara” by C. Narayan Reddy, “Prajala Manishi” by Vattikota Alwar Swamy and “Timiram Tho Samaram” by Dasharathi as prominent Telugu works.
The account Indian Diplomacy included only three literary works in its tweet while describing the Telugu language and the famous works in it. These three include “Rajasekhara Charitamu” by Kandukuri Veeresalingam, “Ramayana Kalpavrikshamu” by Viswanatha Satyanarayana and “Maha Prasthanam” by Sri Sri.
