Hyderabad: The English Dept of Maulana Azad National Urdu University conducted the 4th National Conference on“Language, Literature, and Society”. The Dean, Prof Panchanan Mohanty, School of Humanities, the University of Hyderabad was also present there.

The professor remarked, “French is the language of France, Spanish is the language of Spain but Hindustani is not the language of Hindustan.”


Prof C R Vishweshwara Rao, former VC of Vikramasimhapuri University inaugurated the conference.

Continuing his speech, Prof Mohanty told that only 4 percent of Indians speak English but this language keeps the entire country united. There are 22 scheduled languages which 96.6 percent people speak. He felt the need for research on Indian English.

He told that if Indian English is recognized as an Indian language, it could be taught as a local language instead of a foreign language. Teaching English through another language is one of the basic difficulties of acquisition of this language. English should be taught without the intervention of any other language as we teach our mother tongue.

Prof Vishweshwara Rao reviewed the critical thought process right from Aristophanes to the modern historians. He told that society was construed in the context of the development of Literature. Now it is being considered as a literary text.

Prof Naseemuddin Farees, Dean, School of Languages, Linguistics and Indology applauded the efforts of the Dept of English of MANUU for organizing this conference. By selecting the topic as “Language, Literature, and Society”, the conference has been made very valuable.

Dr Shugufta Shaheen, Head of the Dept of English, MANUU told that society is the mirror of Literature and hence the important task of Literature is to promote Human values.

The issue of theoretical principles and aesthetic values which have been engaging the attention of the writers right from the ancient times is continued in the modern era also. Thus, it becomes essential to organize Literary discussion and discourses like this.

Actress Kangana Ranaut has talked about how her weight adjustments for her latest 'Thalaivii' that "messed up many things" in her body and left her with "permanent stretch marks". For her role in the film, based on the life of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and former actress J. Jayalalithaa, Kangana had to gain 20kg and undergo major physical transformation several times.

She took to Instagram to share her experience, detailing that doing all that over the six months period left her with "permanent stretch marks". "Gaining 20 kgs in 6 months and loosing it all within 6 months that too in my thirties messed up many things in my bodya I also have permanent stretch marks as well but art comes to life with a price and more often than not price is the artist him/herself," she wrote.

"Thalaivii" showcases the varied aspects of Jayalalithaa's life, tracing her journey as an actress at a young age to becoming the face of Tamil cinema, as well as the rise of the revolutionary leader who changed the course of the state's politics. Talking about her upcoming works, Kangana currently has 'Dhaakad'.

She is also shooting for her next 'Tejas', where she plays a fighter pilot. The Indian Air Force was the first of the country's defence forces to induct women into combat roles in 2016. The film takes inspiration from the landmark event. 'Tejas' is directed by debutant Sarvesh Mewara. The film will be RSVP's second film which pays a tribute to the Indian military after the immensely successful film "Uri: The Surgical Strike" which was released in January 2019. (IANS/ MBI)
