As Lord curzon declared the division of Bengal in 1905, protests began nationwide opposing the decision. These protests led to the ‘Vandemataram’ movement which in turn had led to the freedom movement. Maharashtra started celebrating the Ganapati utsavs and sivaji utsavs (celebrations) to increase patriotism and interest towards their moth¬er tongue among the people. In the background of all the above, the youth of Hyderabad state who had no freedom or rights of any sort-started to became aware of their conditions. Scholars of the region felt the need to create educational facilities and to spread literacy among the people, which led to the formation of the library movement in the Telangana region.
According to Suravaram Pratapa reddy. ‘The library movement is the first movement in Telangana’. Like all people oriented activities, the library movement also started with the charity of donors and spread through the region. The details of the first libraries started then are –
It is said that the library at Nagai village, near wadi railway station, was founded by the prathamasekhara, the chalukya king in 1058 A.D. History tells us that it was managed by six librarians
A donor called ‘Somasundara Modaliar’ founded the first library of the Telugu regions in Secunderabad in 1872 A.D.
The among the Telugu people to donate for the library movement was a native of Warangal town Mudigonda Sankararadhya. He founded a library named ‘Sankarananda Grandhalaya’ in kavadiguda of Hyderabad at the Shankarmath in 1872 A.D.
Sankararadhya also started a public library in Secunderabad and he donated his own house to the library-Sabdanusasana Andhra Bhasha Nilayam-in Warangal in 1908 A.D.
Aghoranath chattopadhyaya founded the ‘youngmen’s Improvement society’ (YMIS) in 1879 and established a library in it, for which he purchased several books and magazines regularly. His wife Varada Sundaridevi used to run a night school for women and taught in it. Aghoranath, with the help of his friend maulvi Abdul khayyum found¬ed another organisation called the ‘Brotherhood society’.
The Nizam government took over a civil library (started in 1880) and transformed it into the ‘Asafia state library’ in 1891 A.D. Its founders were Maulvi Abdul Khayyum and the then director of department of education-Nawab Imadul Mulk. Through the hard work of Andhra Maha Sabha later, magazines and books of telugu, Kannada, Marathi, Hindi and other local languages were brought to this library since, 1940. Lakhs of books of different fields like history, culture, finance, social and literature were purchased and preserved in it. This library is the present day state central library in Hyderabad.
The ‘Hindu social club’ was founded in 1892, which helped to solve financial and other problems Telangana History & Culture of Hindu students who went to London for education with government scholar ships.Several rich persons of Maharashtra joined hands in 1895 to develop the Marathi language and culture and founded an organisation called the ‘Bharata Gunavardhaka Samstha’. A library was also established as a part of it.
The ‘Albert reading room was established in Bollaram in 1896A.D.
Srikrishnadevarayaandhra Bhasha Nilayam -1901
