I am the Movement...

[Original Contribution by Dileep Konatham].

As a Telanganite:
  • I will not lose my cool when someone talks negatively about Telangana Movement.
  • I will not get agitated by anti-Telangana "news" in the regional and national media.
  • I will not respond to foolish questions on why Telangana is needed.
  • I will not condemn my leadership on frivolous issues.  This will only dilute our cause.
  • I will not get swayed by anti-Telangana propaganda. 
  • I will not unnecessarily denounce my leadership in public. 
  • I will not lose heart when any of the agitations fail to attain Telangana.  I understand that an agitation is only a battle.  The war is won after many battles.
  • I will stand by the current Telangana leaders as long as they fight for Telangana.
  • I will strive to unite all Telangana forces to strengthen our movement.
  • I understand that Telangana is a just demand based on sound logic and facts.
  • I will approach my leadership and provide constructive feedback.
  • I will rise above caste and religion for Telangana.

As a Telanganite:

  • I understand that Telangana is one of the greatest people’s movements in world history.  And our opponents can’t buy each of us.
  • I understand that no force on earth can stop an idea whose time has come.

And most importantly...

Telangana is an idea whose time has come

I understand that no single party or leader is entirely responsible for achieving Telangana. 
I am responsible for achieving Telangana, because…

I am the movement!



  1. Super... I think I too need to setup such rules for myself. I will try...

  2. Sujai: a constructive approach indeed! Yes, I (and you as well as lakhs like us) am the Movement.

  3. And I don't care a separate Telanagana as long as there is development.

  4. God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.
