Most of the material will not be of interest to general readership of other s.c.* groups. It is expected that a good number of contributions will be in telugu language (written in Roman script because of the keyboard etc - possibly in Tex format for eventual printing in Telugu script). A lot of us do not send any contribution to sci in Telugu for obvious reasons.       Telugu language is one of the oldest surviving languages of the world; it is the third oldest language of India currently being spoken; only Tamil and Kannada have literature predating Telugu literature.                     It is proposed that soc.culture.telugu be formed.       Which will be a more appropriate name for the group: soc.culture.telugu or soc.culture.andhra ?       The discussion period will end on June 11,1992 and voting will begin on June 12,1992 --  K.

This RFD is a modification of an earlier RFD for soc.culture.telugu (a name change). As such the period of discussion will be limited for a week and a CFV will appear on or around July 6, 1992.  Charter: ------- 	 	Telugu is the twelfth most widely spoken language in the world [1], the second most widely spoken language in India. It is a Dravidian language spoken by about 69 million people.  Earliest written records in Telugu date back to the third century A.D., while polished written literature dates back to about 1000 A.D.  Andhra is the Sanskrit name for Telugu, and most of its speakers are in Andhra Pradesh, a state in the southern part of India. Telugu is one of the four major languages of the Dravidian family, with its own script common to all of its several dialects. Telugu culture dates back to the begining of Christian Era and it has evolved with the inputs from both Sanskritic and Dravidic culture groups.  	The proposed newsgroup is expected to be a forum for discussions on topics that are specific to Telugu culture, with no apparent relevance to persons not interested in Telugu culture and language. Postings relating to Telugu or Andhra Pradesh but are of relevance to others are expected to be crossposted to appropriate newsgroups (eg soc.culture.indian, rec.music.indian.classical). Likewise, if a topic is not Telugu-specific, it is expected that it will be posted elsewhere in an appropriate forum. Many postings on the proposed newsgroup are likely to be in transliterated Telugu, with an English translation not necessarily accompanying them.   	The following is a partial list of such possible topics.  Arts: ----- Performing Arts: Kuchipudi dance, its style and framework compared to Bharatanatyam and other dance forms from other parts of the country, dance dramas, evolution of Telugu theater, Telugu lyrics in Karnatic classical music, devotional philosophies of its exponents.  Other Arts: Ballads, `harikatha', `burrakatha', their current popularity.  Communication Media:  -------------------  Electronic Media: Quality of Telugu TV programs, State autonomy versus privatization of the TV, relevance of various programs on the TV, its role in social life, in politics, in government, in adult education, its influence on common man, its role as a news media. Same for Radio, with discussion on regional radio stations.  Print Media: News analysis, commentary, editorials, investigative  and yellow journalism in Telugu newspapers, their quality in comparison with national newspapers in English.        	 Literary quality and popular literature in periodicals, soft pornography in weekly magazines, science fiction, educational magazines, children's magazines, comics.  Visual Media: Films: Various genres, modern trends, comparison with other Indian or foreign language films, technical quality, dialects in films, literary quality of songs, obscenity in sight and sound, social issues in films, film personalities such as directors, actors.  Painting, sculpture, handicrafts, puppet shows and street plays.  Developmental Projects: ---------------------- Literacy improvement, adult education, primary health care, eradication of social evils like `Jogin' system and bonded labor, NRI interest in such projects, profiles of social service organizations, social workers, governmental long-term projects.  History: ------- Various theories on the history of the Telugu language and people, life of a common man in various dynasties, current status of native tribes, British influence on the region, migration patterns.  Literature:  ----------  Discussions on classical as well as modern literature may include major literary movements, various literary forms and their relationship to the content, diachronic evolution of the relationship between form and content, influence of world literature and philosophers, folk literature, children's literature, literature in various dialects, translations from other languages, poets, playwrights, novelists, story tellers and such.  Scientific Literature: --------------------- Teaching science in Telugu, scientific vocabulary in Telugu, reviews of science books in Telugu, taking science to rural children.   Software: -------- Good features of a transliteration scheme, various schemes, typesetting in  LaTeX, what-you-see-is-what-you-get software based on transliteration, special spell-checking problems in Telugu, optical character recognition, merits of existing packages, ftp sites for transliterated texts.   Teaching Telugu: --------------- Challenges in teaching Telugu to the second generation (born and settled outside of Andhra Pradesh) - especially that outside of India, designing textbooks, dictionaries and other learning tools for them.   The above is only a small sample of possible topics. It is hoped that the proposed newsgroup will generate discussion on many more such topics.   ------ [1] The World Almanac and Book of Facts 1992, whose source in turn is Sidney S Culbert, University of Washington, Seattle.

It is hoped that the proposed newsgroup will generate discussion on many more such topics.   ------ [1] The World Almanac and Book of Facts 1992, whose source in turn is Sidney S Culbert, University of Washington, Seattle.

The voting process was monitored by Ramana Juvvadi, since     Dr. K.Sankara Rao (who was the original vote-taker) left for a    vacation after the first CFV was issued.      We are providing below the list of votes received for     soc.culture.indian.telugu, classified into YES votes and     NO votes. We have detected a few cases of a single person     casting votes from multiple accounts. In cases where we could    ascertain such an occurance, we have deleted all duplicate votes    from the YES list, which were 8 in number. However, we have     not done a similar check on the NO list, so the number     of NO votes are just as many as were received.  Votes cast by     the same person for both YES and NO lists were resolved by    considering the latest vote.     We thank all the people who took time to vote, and apologize if any    of the votes deleted from the YES list were indeed genuine. A five-day    waiting period follows.

The period of discussion is three weeks. This is not a Call for Votes (CFV). You cannot vote at this time. A Call For Vote (CFV) will appear in several weeks.  Procedural details are given below.  Nesgroups line: soc.culture.indian.telugu       The culture of the Telugu people of India.  RATIONALE: soc.culture.indian.telugu  The usenet group soc.culture.india.telugu was created to serve as a forum for discussion of Telugu culture and matters related to Andhra Pradesh. As you are aware, soc.culture.india (SCI) serves as a medium for discussion of matters of India-wide interest. It was intended that discussions on SCIT would cover subjects such as arts (kuchipudi etc), telugu literature, AP politics, developmental projects from AP, telugu movies etc.  Unfortunately, for quite some time now, SCIT has been deluged with crossposts from other newsgroups. The contents of these posts have absolutely no relevance whatsoever to either Telugu culture or other topics suggested in the original charter of SCIT. This crossposting phenomenon has single handedly resulted in SCIT (in its current form of an unmoderated group) losing the purpose for which it was created.  Anecdotally at least, there seem to be  a great many people interested in Telugu culture who would be delighted to read and contribute to SCIT, were it not for the inordinate noise level. At the same time, many current and prospective SCIT readers oppose the idea of a fully moderated SCIT due to the potential for censorship. Additionally, moderation entails practical pitfalls such as the difficulty of finding qualified volunteers and possible delays in the appearance of postings.  CHARTER: soc.culture.indian.telugu  Since this is a proposal to change just the STATUS of the newsgroup, the charter shall remain as proposed at the time of the formation of this group in its unmoderated form. This charter can be found at http://metro.turnpike.net/telugu/automod.html  Moderation Policy:  The moderation will be primarily for the purpose of eliminating the cross-postings. The moderation will be done by auto-moderation tools (custom-built computer programs), with human intervention kept to the minimum level required to keep said programs operating satisfactorily. The tools will be utilized to auto-moderate posts to the forum by rejecting cross-posts.  Posts will not be checked for their contents !!!  We feel that such restrictions are needed, considering the large number of irrelevant postings that are flooding SCIT in its current form. While we believe in freedom of expression, practice it to the fullest, and encourage it in others, we think the restriction placed is within reason. It may be noted that *NO* restriction is proposed on language use, on topics allowed, or content, and that we have deliberately refrained from human moderation, to eliminate all possible subjectivity in moderation. Our only aim is to create a newsgroup that allows the fullest freedom to discuss all issues as specified in the original charter of SCIT , but removes material that are of no interest (which is generally the case with crossposts).  The code used to carry out the filtering has been thoroughly tested, and is available by request from the proposed moderator.  It is expected that by eliminating the large number of crossposts by using an automoderator program, soc.culture.indian.telugu will be restored to its original form and serve the purpose for which it was created: i.e serve as a forum for people to discuss issues relating to Telugu language and culture.

CHARTER: soc.culture.indian.telugu  It is proposed that the usenet group soc.culture.indian.telugu be changed from its current status of an unmoderated group to an automoderated group.  The original charter follows:          Telugu is the twelfth most widely spoken language in the world [1], the second most widely spoken language in India. It is a Dravidian language spoken by about 69 million people.  Earliest written records in Telugu date back to the third century A.D., while polished written literature dates back to about 1000 A.D.  Andhra is the Sanskrit name for Telugu, and most of its speakers are in Andhra Pradesh, a state in the southern part of India. Telugu is one of the four major languages of the Dravidian family, with its own script common to all of its several dialects. Telugu culture dates back to the begining of Christian Era and it has evolved with the inputs from both Sanskritic and Dravidic culture groups.          The proposed newsgroup is expected to be a forum for discussions on topics that are specific to Telugu culture, with no apparent relevance to persons not interested in Telugu culture and language. Postings relating to Telugu or Andhra Pradesh but are of relevance to others are expected to be crossposted to appropriate newsgroups (eg soc.culture.indian, rec.music.indian.classical). Likewise, if a topic is not Telugu-specific, it is expected that it will be posted elsewhere in an appropriate forum. Many postings on the proposed newsgroup are likely to be in transliterated Telugu, with an English translation not necessarily accompanying them.          The following is a partial list of such possible topics.  Arts: ----- Performing Arts: Kuchipudi dance, its style and framework compared to Bharatanatyam and other dance forms from other parts of the country, dance dramas, evolution of Telugu theater, Telugu lyrics in Karnatic classical music, devotional philosophies of its exponents.  Other Arts: Ballads, `harikatha', `burrakatha', their current popularity.  Communication Media: ------------------- Electronic Media: Quality of Telugu TV programs, State autonomy versus privatization of the TV, relevance of various programs on the TV, its role in social life, in politics, in government, in adult education, its influence on common man, its role as a news media. Same for Radio, with discussion on regional radio stations.  Print Media: News analysis, commentary, editorials, investigative and yellow journalism in Telugu newspapers, their quality in comparison with national newspapers in English.  Literary quality and popular literature in periodicals, soft pornography in weekly magazines, science fiction, educational magazines, children's magazines, comics.  Visual Media: Films: Various genres, modern trends, comparison with other Indian or foreign language films, technical quality, dialects in films, literary quality of songs, obscenity in sight and sound, social issues in films, film personalities such as directors, actors.  Painting, sculpture, handicrafts, puppet shows and street plays.  Developmental Projects: ---------------------- Literacy improvement, adult education, primary health care, eradication of social evils like `Jogin' system and bonded labor, NRI interest in such projects, profiles of social service organizations, social workers, governmental long-term projects.  History: ------- Various theories on the history of the Telugu language and people, life of a common man in various dynasties, current status of native tribes, British influence on the region, migration patterns.  Literature: ---------- Discussions on classical as well as modern literature may include major literary movements, various literary forms and their relationship to the content, diachronic evolution of the relationship between form and content, influence of world literature and philosophers, folk literature, children's literature, literature in various dialects, translations from other languages, poets, playwrights, novelists, story tellers and such.  Scientific Literature: --------------------- Teaching science in Telugu, scientific vocabulary in Telugu, reviews of science books in Telugu, taking science to rural children.  Software: -------- Good features of a transliteration scheme, various schemes, typesetting in  LaTeX, what-you-see-is-what-you-get software based on transliteration, special spell-checking problems in Telugu, optical character recognition, merits of existing packages, ftp sites for transliterated texts.  Teaching Telugu: --------------- Challenges in teaching Telugu to the second generation (born and settled outside of Andhra Pradesh) - especially that outside of India, designing textbooks, dictionaries and other learning tools for them.  The above is only a small sample of possible topics. It is hoped that the proposed newsgroup will generate discussion on many more such topics.  Moderation Policy:  The moderation will be primarily for the purpose of eliminating the cross-postings. The moderation will be done by auto-moderation tools (custom-built computer programs), with human intervention kept to the minimum level required to keep said programs operating satisfactorily.

Questions about the proposed group should be directed to the proponent.  Proponent: Kamala Anupindi <[email protected]> Votetaker: Jan Isley <[email protected]>  RATIONALE: soc.culture.indian.telugu  The usenet group soc.culture.india.telugu was created to serve as a forum for discussion of Telugu culture and matters related to Andhra Pradesh.  Unfortunately, for quite some time now, SCIT has been deluged with crossposts from other newsgroups. The contents of these posts have absolutely no relevance whatsoever to either Telugu culture or other topics suggested in the original charter of SCIT. This crossposting phenomenon has single handedly resulted in SCIT (in its current form of an unmoderated group) losing the purpose for which it was created.  Anecdotally at least, there seem to be  a great many people interested in Telugu culture who would be delighted to read and contribute to SCIT, were it not for the inordinate noise level. At the same time, many current and prospective SCIT readers oppose the idea of a fully moderated SCIT due to the potential for censorship. Additionally, moderation entails practical pitfalls such as the difficulty of finding qualified volunteers and possible delays in the appearance of postings.  It is hence proposed that the group's status be changed to one of an automoderated group. The moderation will be primarily for the purpose of eliminating the cross-postings. The moderation will be done by auto-moderation tools (custom-built computer programs), with human intervention kept to the minimum level required to keep said programs operating satisfactorily. The tools will be utilized to auto-moderate posts to the forum by rejecting cross-posts.  Posts will not be checked for their contents !!!  The code used to carry out the filtering has been thoroughly tested, and is available by request from the proposed moderator.  We feel that such restrictions are needed, considering the large number of irrelevant postings that are flooding SCIT in its current form.  Our only aim is to create a newsgroup that allows the fullest freedom to discuss all issues as specified in the original charter of SCIT, but removes material that are of no interest (which is generally the case with crossposts). It is expected that by eliminating the large number of crossposts by using an automoderator program, soc.culture.indian.telugu will be restored to its original form and serve the purpose for which it was created: i.e serve as a forum for people to discuss issues relating to Telugu language and culture.  CHARTER: soc.culture.indian.telugu  It is proposed that the usenet group soc.culture.indian.telugu be changed >from  its current status of an unmoderated group to an automoderated group.  The original charter follows:          Telugu is the twelfth most widely spoken language in the world [1], the second most widely spoken language in India. It is a Dravidian language spoken by about 69 million people.  Earliest written records in Telugu date back to the third century A.D., while polished written literature dates back to about 1000 A.D.  Andhra is the Sanskrit name for Telugu, and most of its speakers are in Andhra Pradesh, a state in the southern part of India. Telugu is one of the four major languages of the Dravidian family, with its own script common to all of its several dialects. Telugu culture dates back to the begining of Christian Era and it has evolved with the inputs from both Sanskritic and Dravidic culture groups.          The proposed newsgroup is expected to be a forum for discussions on topics that are specific to Telugu culture, with no apparent relevance to persons not interested in Telugu culture and language. Postings relating to Telugu or Andhra Pradesh but are of relevance to others are expected to be crossposted to appropriate newsgroups (eg soc.culture.indian, rec.music.indian.classical). Likewise, if a topic is not Telugu-specific, it is expected that it will be posted elsewhere in an appropriate forum. Many postings on the proposed newsgroup are likely to be in transliterated Telugu, with an English translation not necessarily accompanying them.          The following is a partial list of such possible topics.  Arts: ----- Performing Arts: Kuchipudi dance, its style and framework compared to Bharatanatyam and other dance forms from other parts of the country, dance dramas, evolution of Telugu theater, Telugu lyrics in Karnatic classical music, devotional philosophies of its exponents.  Other Arts: Ballads, `harikatha', `burrakatha', their current popularity.  Communication Media: ------------------- Electronic Media: Quality of Telugu TV programs, State autonomy versus privatization of the TV, relevance of various programs on the TV, its role in social life, in politics, in government, in adult education, its influence on common man, its role as a news media. Same for Radio, with discussion on regional radio stations.  Print Media: News analysis, commentary, editorials, investigative and yellow journalism in Telugu newspapers, their quality in comparison with national newspapers in English.  Literary quality and popular literature in periodicals, soft pornography in weekly magazines, science fiction, educational magazines, children's magazines, comics.  Visual Media: Films: Various genres, modern trends, comparison with other Indian or foreign language films, technical quality, dialects in films, literary quality of songs, obscenity in sight and sound, social issues in films, film personalities such as directors, actors.  Painting, sculpture, handicrafts, puppet shows and street plays.  Developmental Projects: ---------------------- Literacy improvement, adult education, primary health care, eradication of social evils like `Jogin' system and bonded labor, NRI interest in such projects, profiles of social service organizations, social workers, governmental long-term projects.  History: ------- Various theories on the history of the Telugu language and people, life of a common man in various dynasties, current status of native tribes, British influence on the region, migration patterns.  Literature: ---------- Discussions on classical as well as modern literature may include major literary movements, various literary forms and their relationship to the content, diachronic evolution of the relationship between form and content, influence of world literature and philosophers, folk literature, children's literature, literature in various dialects, translations from other languages, poets, playwrights, novelists, story tellers and such.  Scientific Literature: --------------------- Teaching science in Telugu, scientific vocabulary in Telugu, reviews of science books in Telugu, taking science to rural children.  Software: -------- Good features of a transliteration scheme, various schemes, typesetting in  LaTeX, what-you-see-is-what-you-get software based on transliteration, special spell-checking problems in Telugu, optical character recognition, merits of existing packages, ftp sites for transliterated texts.  Teaching Telugu: --------------- Challenges in teaching Telugu to the second generation (born and settled outside of Andhra Pradesh) - especially that outside of India, designing textbooks, dictionaries and other learning tools for them.  The above is only a small sample of possible topics. It is hoped that the proposed newsgroup will generate discussion on many more such topics.  Moderation Policy:  The moderation will be primarily for the purpose of eliminating the cross-postings. The moderation will be done by auto-moderation tools (custom-built computer programs), with human intervention kept to the minimum level required to keep said programs operating satisfactorily. The tools will be utilized to auto-moderate posts to the forum by rejecting cross-posts.  Posts will not be checked for their contents !!!  We feel that such restrictions are needed, considering the large number of irrelevant postings that are flooding SCIT in its current form. While we believe in freedom of expression, practice it to the fullest, and encourage it in others, we think the restriction placed is within reason. It may be noted that *NO* restriction is proposed on language use, on topics allowed, or content, and that we have deliberately refrained from human moderation, to eliminate all possible subjectivity in moderation. Our only aim is to create a newsgroup that allows the fullest freedom to discuss all issues as specified in the original charter of SCIT , but removes material that are of no interest (which is generally the case with crossposts).
