Facing an interview is a nightmare for many. There may be multiple factors lowering your level of confidence. Your depth of knowledge, ability to communicate, body language, dressing style, and an endless list of reasons could affect you in being yourself during an interview. While most of us are highly qualified academically, many are still groping in the dark to present ourselves as professionally qualified. And the sad fact is that, it is your professional persona that wins you a better chance of clearing the interview than your academic qualifications.

TTD Event

Tallapaka Annamacharya, popularly known as ‘Anamayya’, was a 15th-century saint and the earliest known Indian musician to compose songs called sankeertanas in praise of Lord Venkateswara. His compositions have strongly influenced the structure of Carnatic Music and are still making rounds in various music concerts and performances the world over.

Having composed countless odes to Sri Tirumala Venkateswara Swamy, Annamacharya is widely regarded as the Pada Kavitaa Pitamaha of Telugu poetry. He was a reputed singer and an eminent poet who gave life to the Telugu song and lyricism by blending the Telugu ‘Andhra Vedam’ for the easy understanding of the common man, with the summary of ‘Sanskrit Vedas’.

Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams, also known as TTD, are on an endeavour to preserve the rich heritage of his compositions. They have set music to over 800 compositions of Annamacharya that have amassed wide popularity among the devotees. We are delighted to announce that the following TTD musicians will be offering a beautiful rendition of Annamacharya’s compositions at our university campus:

Mr M B Loganatha Reddy (Singer)

Mr Srinivasulu (Keyboard)

Mr Bujji (Tabla)

Mr Ramachandraiyya (Shruthi)

Lend your ears to their soothing and heart-warming performance.

World environment dayImagine a motto having the same relevance and emergency even after 50 years of its inception! The slogan for the Stockholm Conference, #OnlyOneEarth of 1972, can relate. The theme is as pertinent as ever, with a lot more amplified concerns. This World Environment Day, revisit the actuality that Mother Earth is still the only liveable planet we have. Nature conservation is that battle we plot against ourselves only to win back what we destroyed.

The reckless devastations can only be nullified through transformative actions which can reset the balance between humanity and nature. Getting out of the denial stage and acting accordingly is the only way to preserve nature for the next generation. A greener, cleaner, and sustainable tomorrow will always be a matter of urgency with the escalating environmental issues.

The Department of Student Affairs is celebrating World Environment Day to spread hopes and action plans for protecting what we have in order to restore what we lost. The celebration aspires to emphasise and accelerate the thoughts on the predicament situation we are in. As part of the event, there will also be an awareness rally to foster the essence of the message.

Time: 08.00 AM to 10.00 AM IST

Come along and renew the pledge to embrace mother nature!
