Apart from their leader’s credentials, they are also banking on the letter ‘K’ (K for Kodandaram) to fetch more seats in 2019 elections. There is a reason behind this new-found optimism amongst K LETTER WORKED IN DELHI AND KARNATAKA ELECTIONS, SAY OPTIMISTS some leaders associated with the party. “If we look at Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi or JD(S) that formed the government recently in Karnataka with support of Congress, the leaders at the helm of affairs are Kejriwal and Kumaraswamy respectively. Incidentally, both have names starting with K very much like TJS chief Kodandaram. Letter K created an impact in elections in two states earlier and the next turn could be Telangana,” thus exult TJS functionaries.

And it is probably yet another inimitable feature of this unique land that every year, during this time, special songs are released on television channels and online, celebrating the state and the people. They gain immense popularity at par with any ﬁlm song, and Satyavathi Rathod aka Mangli more so. This year too TV’s song written by Dr Kandikonda and sung by Satyavathi Rathod aka Mangli is trending. Another song ‘Magani Matti’ sung by Madhupriya too has released this year. Popular singer Telu Vijaya’s ‘Jayaho Telangana’ too is climbing up the charts. Folk singer Saichand Veeda’s ‘Amma Vandanam’ is melodious and different in its rendition. And, there are more to be released. As Mangli said, “Telangana wouldn’t have been possi- ble without songs. Songs reach quickly to people and help them to understand the gravity of any situation”. Going back in time, ‘Bandenka Bandi Gatti’ – the then young baladeer Gaddar dances and sings away in abandonment and the inspired youth sing along with him in a famous scene from National Award-winning ﬁlm ‘Maa Bhoomi’ – the song that inspired the masses and was later adapted into the movie continues in its popularContinued on P4 ity till date. northeast Bay of Bengal.
