Dear Telugu and Telangana Community,
It gives me immense pleasure to introduce myself as the President of Telangana American Telugu Association (T.A.T.A). I am enthralled to be associated with T.A.T.A since its inception in April 2015. I am proud to say T.A.T.A is one of the premier organization in North America serving the needs of Telanganites, Telugu community and the mainstream people in America. My earliest gratitude and heartfelt thanks goes to Dr. Pailla Malla Reddy Garu, the great Entrepreneur, Visionary, a Samaritan and above all a good friend. His ideology, and his fore vision brought us here, where T.A.T.A is involved in all community service activities and social causes highlighting Telangana culture across America and the globe.
I would like to take a moment and thank the Board of directors of T.A.T.A in trusting my leadership and reposing faith that I can take on this role and all the activities . I am blessed to have such a great team of leaders who are determined to do good to the society. I am proud to say that T.A.T.A in a short span of time undertook many developmental activities such as T.A.T.A Seva Days, Winter Coats donation, reaching out with assistance to the homeless people, food donation, helping families in distress whose families met with unfortunate incidents in America and fulfilling other social needs of the people. T.A.T.A also did yearly anniversaries in California and Texas where a true reflection of our culture was displayed with pomp and gaiety. Yet, there is more to accomplish and with Telugu people coming forward and contributing to the overall cause of humanity this doesn’t seem an impossible task.
Of major importance to note T.A.T.A took the major initiative and task to organize and execute first ever combined convention with another sister organization, American Telugu Association on May 31st, June 1st and 2nd 2018 at Dallas. I invite all of you to come and participate in this mega combined convention.
I request the reader to come forward and be part of the social and cultural movement by becoming a member of this elite organization. You can find more details on our website.
First of all, let me thank for the kind honor that you have bestowed upon me, by allowing me the opportunity to serve as the President of T.A.T.A. Our association is one of the first and premier Telangana association and well recognized organizations in the USA and India. The organization since its inception has done extremely well to preserve, promote and propagate the Telugu language and culture and also community services in both US and India for the past 4 years.
I am proud to have been associated with this esteemed organization for the past 4 years, since the inception and work with all honesty, integrity for a long and bright future for T.A.T.A. I must also let you know how pleased I am to be working with a team of highly qualified and dedicated professionals in the New Executive Committee of 2019. My warmest congratulations to the entire board.
But before all of that I should thank one person, with whom I have been associated since 2 decades, he is the pivotal person who drives our zeal to take up community services. He is none other than Dr. Pailla Malla Reddy. He is such a philanthropist who prompts, supports and inspires us to undertake service as a pristine activity. I thank him from the bottom of my heart.
I also wish to continue the good work of my predecessors and will make every effort to pursue programs that are beneficial to our members and community.
A brief outline of this year’s agenda thus far:
Activities: Picnics, Holi celebrations, Bathukamma Celebrations, Dasara celebrations, back-to-school kits, blood drives, coat drives.
Work towards reaching out to main stream America in involving in local school boards and city boards.
As the President I am presenting my ideas and plans in front of you ahead of time. Without your support and participation, it would be difficult to implement these ideas and plans into reality. Your suggestions are extremely valuable to us and are always welcome. Rest assured, T.A.T.A will make every effort to ensure that community is involved.
If you have any innovative ideas or programs that you wish to see implemented, please feel free to share it with me for further consideration.
