Sri Satya Sai Seva organisation’s gesture

It was a moment of passion and love for the young girl who lost both her parents at a tender age. 16-year-old K.Santoshi broke into tears at the love and affection showered on her by the ladies’ wing of Sri Satya Sai Seva organisation on Saturday.

Santoshi lost her parents due to tuberculosis when she was hardly six-years-old. She was since then living in a thatched shabby accommodation at Madinabagh Colony in the vicinity of Visakhapatnam Steel Plant and was being looked after by the colony mates.

When the ladies’ wing of Sri Satya Sai Seva Organisation came to know about the plight of the girl whose thatched house was about to collapse, they offered to construct a house for Santoshi.

The newly-constructed house was inaugurated amidst Vedic chanting by Chandana Chalam along with several other office-bearers of ladies wing of the organisation. V.R Nageswara Rao, district president, Sri Satya Sai Seva Organisation, was present on the occasion.

Santoshi was also presented with a new sewing machine to enable her to be self-employed. New clothes, kitchenware and essential commodities, were also presented by the members of the ladies’ wing.

P.R.S.N. Naidu, convener, Sri Satya Sai City Seva Samithi, D. Raghavarao, district service coordinator and others participated in the programme.

Software for Telugu SMS service to be launched tomorrow

The Information Technology (IT) Department will launch software for availing SMS service in Telugu on December 30.

The software, designed by A.P. Society for Knowledge Networks, a wing of the IT Department, will be compatible with mobile handsets and tabs including I-Pad enabled with Android and I-Phone operating systems, IT Minister Ponnala Lakshmaiah said here on Saturday.

He claimed it was for the first time in the country an SMS service would be available in a regional language. Mr. Lakshmaiah added that the software was designed for compatibility with Unicode font, so that there were no issues with services being offered by mobile network operators.

The software has already been made available on http://www.teluguvijayam.org . On downloading the software, ‘TelugumAta’ virtual keyboard will be installed on the devices.

It will allow the user to type in Telugu on the phone or other device, wherein Telugu letters will be realised by single key strokes (instead of multi-taps). All characters will be accommodated in two layers unlike other apps, Mr. Lakshmaiah added.
