[Strategy] Telugu Literature for UPSC Civil service Exam


This article should guide you in which books to read, what topics to concentrate and where to buy the books. Introduction

Telugu Literature is a popular optional for all the aspirants who are well-versed in this language. That does not mean that one has to be a literature graduate (B.A or M.A in Telugu). The success rate of many engineering graduates, who have liking for the subject, indicates that the subject is easy, provided one has the aptitude for the subject.

Tips for Paper I

IO Activity - Stats Points: 82 Level: 3 IO Activity - Bars Lv. Percent: 5.1% Weekly Activity: 16.98%

This is the easiest paper of Telugu Literature and very easy to read and doesn't require any coaching. You can pick up the books suggested and start reading even before you join any coaching. In section A, if one is comfortable with telugu grammar, the subject becomes very easy. But on the negative side, you need to remember lots of names of authors and books in Section B. As the subject is easy, care should be taken in presentation and art of writing good answers with sub-heading and nice examples. Books for Section A Paper 1

1, 4 8 sections of the syllabus can be chosen to prepare, ignoring others in choice.

Nagaraju Sir's notes (available in the Srinivasa Xerox Center near Ashok nagar X roads, Hyderabad) Andhra Bhasha Charithra (by Badriraju Krishnamurty) (only if you have time to read) Vakyam (by Chekuri Ramarao) (only if you have time to read) Tips for Section B of Paper 1

Paper 1 (Sec B): 1 4 (ancient) sections of the syllabus, 5 8 (medieval) sections, 9 12 (modern) sections, Janapada sahityam. You can either pick ancient (1 4) or medieval (5 8) sections,...... and reading Modern (9 12) and Janapada sahityam compulsorily. Books for Section B of Paper 1

Nagaraju Sir's notes (available in the Srinivasa Xerox Center near Ashok nagar X roads, Hyderabad) Andhra Sahitya Charitra (by Nagayya) (very big book. Read only if you have time). Paper 2

This is a difficult paper compared to Paper I, but also very scoring. For this paper, I feel coaching is necessary, especially for the ones who don't understand Kavya style of writing. Also, this paper includes writing Vyakhyanas for different padyalu both ancient and modern. Tips for Section A

1. You can read (Dushyanta Charitra) Nannayya, (Sri Krishna Rayabaram) Tikkana, (Gunanidhi katha) Srinathudu, (Sugatri Saleenula Katha) Pingali Soorana. 2. You can ignore Molla Ramayanam and last notes.

Books for Section A:

Syllabus and text notes of all the chapters (from Navodaya Book House, Koti or Sree Book Square, Kachiguda X Road). Nagaraju Sir's notes Akella Raghavendra book on Telugu Literature Paper II. They are commentaries available on each syllabus chapter in Navodaya Book House. But read this, after you get sufficient time and after completion of syllabus.

Tips for Section B

There are two ways to read this section. Read the poetry syllabus of chapters for both Vyakhyanas and Long Answers. Or read poetry syllabus for Vyakhyanas and read prose sections of Gurajada kathalu, Alpajeevi and NGO for Long answers. The choice will be yours. Its better to read Sri Sri - Maha Prastanam and Jashuva - Gabbilam for both Vyakhyanas and Long answers.

Books for Section B

1. Syllabus and text notes of all the chapters (from Navodaya Book House, Koti or Sree Book Square, Kachiguda X Road). 2. Nagaraju Sir's notes 3. Akella Raghavendra book on Telugu Literature Paper II. 4. They are commentaries available on each syllabus chapter in Navodaya Book House. But read this, after you get sufficient time and after completion of syllabus.

http://www.indianofficer.com/forums/8420-strategy-telugu-literature-unio...

First look at the previous question papers and write down all the questions per topic one after other, so that you can get an idea of questions asked. All the topics can be related to - Kala Soundarya Drukpatham, Charithraka Samajaka Drukpatham, Manastatatva Drukpatham, Tatvika Drukpatham, Vyaktitvam (character - sketch), Relevance and importance of the topic in literature and so on. So, prepare points on each topic rather than answers for each topic. These points you can use to write answers depending on the question asked. Prepare nice introductions and nice endings for each general topic. Read the text number of times. especially poetry so that you get command of the subject and also to write quotes in the exam. Quotations will surely enhance your answers..

Vyakhyanas:

1. All the topics can be related to - Kala Soundarya Drukpatham, Charithraka Samajaka Drukpatham, Manastatatva Drukpatham, Tatvika Drukpatham 2. You have to develop a base in all the above topics, so that you can write easily for any poem asked. 3. Give introduction, Sandarbam, bhavam and start the vyakhyanam and then ending. 4. For kala soundarya Drukpatham, one has to know all about the Rasam, Dhvani, Vakrokti etc. 5. Develop important points for all the Vrutha poems (4 lined poems) and then write important points for all the other poems if you have time. 6. Do write at least 5 vyakhyanas for all the 4 drukpathams before the exam so that you are sufficiently confident.
