Andhra Jyothi Krishna Patrika (D). Telugu is a Dravidian language spoken mostly by Telugu people in the Indian states of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, and the Yanam district of Puducherry. The Krishna Patrika was the first Telugu newspaper. It was founded on 15 August 1865 by Chittajee Thirumala Tirupathi Venkata Raju.
The paper was started with a capital of Rs. 10,000 contributed by Raju's friends. It was published from Madras (now Chennai) until 1870, when it was moved to Hyderabad. In 1872, the circulation of the paper was reported to be 3000 copies. By 1890, this had risen to 7500 copies. In 1918, the circulation of the paper was estimated to be 20,000 copies.
In addition to news, articles, and reports about politics, society, arts, science, and technology, the paper included advertisements from local businesses. It also published book reviews and stories from other newspapers. The Krishna Patrika was successful in attracting readers due to its high quality content and innovative design. It is said that the paper made use of new printing techniques like lithography for which no other publication at the time was doing.
Besides Raju, other famous editors of the paper include Koteswara Rao and Yerra Mohan Rao.
Telugu, one of India's ancient languages, is the state's primary and official language. On June 2, 2014, the northwestern region of Andhra Pradesh was divided to establish the new state of Telangana, and Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh's long-time capital, was moved to Telangana as part of the partition. The new state officially starts on May 30, 2015.
However, the language is spoken by almost all Indians in some form or another. It has eight hundred thousand speakers overall and is most popular in southern India.
India's other official languages are Hindi and English.
Public offices, including courts, do not use English as their main language, but rather provide translations into and out of English for people who do not understand it. Thus, English is used primarily by individuals who seek jobs in these sectors or who want to access information online. It is also widely used in business transactions and documents with English words or phrases.
Hindi is the national language of India. It is spoken by about a quarter of the population of India, and also has a large number of speakers outside India. It is the language of instruction in schools across India, and is known for its ability to attract students even from rural areas where no other school offers lessons in the language.
It is the first language of many Indians, especially those living in northern India and in the states that were once part of British India.
Srikanth is my given name. I was born and raised in Hyderabad. I enjoy traveling. From now on, I'll be sharing my trip movies and unpacking internet travel stuff on this Telugu channel. Please subscribe and make a donation. Thank you very much!
I started my search from the local library. They have lots of journals and magazines from different countries and periods. I spent hours reading each issue looking for my name. I knew it would be in there somewhere!
After a few weeks of searching, I found an article that had my photo in it. That must mean they published something about me. I was so excited! I went back later that day to check out the journal and see if they mentioned anything else about me. That disappointment set in quickly.
Even though my search ended without success, I still think it's amazing how many people live all over the world and want to hear your story. It makes me feel like what I do matters.
I hope you find some value in telling your story too! Good luck with your own journey!

India has a strong tradition of journalism dating back to 1835 when John Lockwood founded the first British newspaper from Calcutta. Today, there are more than 1500 newspapers published in India. Some major cities like Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay) and Delhi have several newspapers published every day.
Swadesamitran The first Tamil newspapers providing hard news and writing on politics, both started by Salem Pagadala Naidu, were Salem Desabhimani, the year The Hindu started, and Coimbatore Kalanidhi in 1880. In 1882, Subramania Aiyer founded his own Tamil weekly, Swadesamitran. It was a success and many more followed it till it ceased publication in 1897.
After this, several other newspapers began to appear from time to time but they did not live long enough to become really influential. The first modern Tamil daily appeared in 1918: Vellalar Samy's Vellalar Ragasiyam (The Vellalar Daily). It had a wide circulation and was very popular among the people of Tamil Nadu. But after just one year it too stopped printing. No paper has been published from here since then.
The next major development in the field of Tamil journalism came with the launch of Dina Mani's Dinakaran in 1967. It too was a daily and it soon became very popular among the people. But like its predecessors it also closed down after only three years. After this there was a gap of about 10 years before another newspaper appeared on the scene.
In 1987, Kalki Krishnamurthy launched Kumudham, which is still running today. It is a tabloid that focuses mainly on social issues and scandals.
