Telugu is one of the major languages in India having more than a hundred million in the state alone. In the whole of Asian continent, Telugu speaking people are more than a hundred and fifty million. The programs that are broadcast in Telugu through Radio Veritas Asia reach all the Telugu-speaking people in the whole of Asia. For all people irrespective of cast, creed and language there is a thirst for the Word of God. People are eagerly waiting to listen to Word of God. We notice thousands of people attending spiritual conventions wherever they are conducted. It is a clear sign that people are thirsty for the Word of God. Radio Veritas Asia quenches the thirst of the people to some extent.
Radio Veritas is committed to proclaim the message of God’s love to the people of Asia by producing in cooperation with recognized Asian production centers and transmitting human development and Catholic evangelization programs in short wave and related means of electronic media. RVA re-affirms its mission of evangelization: by proclaiming the message of God’s love to the peoples of Asia.
Telugu Section in RVA was started in the year 1977 with a view to reach to the multitude of Telugu speaking people living in and around India. A test broadcast started on the Easter day of 1977 eventually made Telugu a major broadcast in RVA with 33 years of continuous service.
We have special audience programmes for all categories of listeners, i.e., youth, children, women, religious & laity, formers and so on. World News inclusive of Church news is a major attraction in our broadcasts. This section functions in the stewardship of Amruthavani and the Director of Amruthavani is also the Director of RVA Telugu Section.
We have two able and young priests Fr. Prasanth Anakarla as Coordinator from the diocese of Kurnool and Fr. S. Isaac as the Producer who render their services for RVA Telugu section on behalf of Amruthavani. In-spite of all the modernization and competition from the secular media, RVA Telugu Service strives with its motto in spreading the Good News and working for the Human Development.
