Los Angeles Telugu Association (LATA) Launched
The Los Angeles Telugu Community witnessed a historical event during the launch of a new Telugu organization called Los Angeles Telugu Association (LATA) on Saturday, 23rd of March, 2013. For the first time in the history of United States, a local Telugu organization has been formed with over 150 volunteers who believed that there is a genuine need for a service based organization. The organizers were amazed by the response that they received from the Los Angeles community and hoped that they would get a lot more support when they start signing up memberships. With several prominent members of Los Angeles taking the initiative to address the growing needs of the community, LATA was formed with the biggest volunteer base compared to any organization in the whole of United States. LATA will be conducting UGADI festival in Long Beach on April 20th.
"I never saw such a response in the last 10 years that I had been here. This is amazing. I am hoping we would be able to signup over 500 memberships in the next one month" said Ramesh Kotamurthy, who is one of the founding members of LATA. "We conducted a meeting just to discuss the launching of the organization with key volunteers before we went to the entire community and 150 people came forward to volunteer and build the organization" he said with a huge smile. "This is a service oriented organization run under the supervision of the residents of Greater Los Angeles with full transperancy to address the exact needs of these residents" he added.
"Women need to actively participate in LATA and should be given prominent role in the organization" said Vidya Tadanki, who has been running Telugu Thota, a school to teach telugu for kids, for over 15 years. She said she is very excited to be a part of this organization and wanted to help develop Telugu language development programs for the kids in Los Angeles through LATA. She also said she was not associated with any local organizations for a long time and she was impressed with the programs that LATA came up with and is looking forward to help LATA. This was emphasized by Lakshmi Chimata, another prominent resident of Los Angeles who has been actively involved in women empowerment programs in the area.
"Looking at the kind of enthusiasm today, I believe good days are ahead of us for the Telugu community in Los Angeles. I believe our dream of building a permanent community center will come true if this momentum continues" said Nandan Potluri, who has been prominent resident of Los Angeles for over a decade. Another supporter of LATA, Subba Gopavarapu, spoke at the event and said he wanted to make sure LATA focuses on providing career development programs for the residents of Los Angeles. He volunteered to commit his time in developing such programs.
Ravi Thiruvaipati took the lead in explaining the cultural activities that LATA will be performing in the next one year and moving forward. He invited all the volunteers to continue to work for Ugadi event that is being held by LATA on April 20th in Long Beach. He iterated that this program will only involve local talent and local talent only. He said LATA's goal is to promote and encourage the telugu community living in Greater Los Angeles area and will put a lot of effort in bringing that talent out. According to him, there will only be one event every year that involves talent from outside. Suresh Ayinampudi described the various sports activities and health awareness programs that LATA would be initiating this year. Sports lover and prominent supporter of LATA, Sridhar Addanki pledged $1,116.00 as the first donor for the organization.
Hari Madala, who is one of the founding members of LATA, thanked all the volunteers for all the hardwork that they did in forming this organization and hoped to get continued support in taking LATA to new heights. Srini Komirisetty explained the various service oriented activities that will be taken up by LATA and was received with huge applause. Ram Yalamanchili requested the volunteers to take LATA to the community and encourage them to sign up for membership. Another founding member Tilak Kadiyala said that the organization success relies on the genuineness and the service activities it is involved in.
This event was attended by prominent people of Los Angeles Vijaybhaskar Nekkanti, Kishore Kantamaneni, Shyam Gumdala, Madhu Bodapati, Ranga Rao, Suresh Chilukuri, Venkat Alla, Hari Konka, Srinivas Killada, Benerjee Sunkavalli, Pandu Chimata, Prasad Papudesi, Sameer Bhavanibhatla, Veerababu Ambati, Kishore Garikapati, Varma Dantuluri, Srihari Atluri, Jyothi Pachunoori, Raghu Maddula, Sridhar Vellamena, Raj Kolmi, Krishna Gorrepati, Giri Kalluri, Vinay Kanna, Koti Komatineni.

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme
of this site. It's simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appearance.
I must say that you've done a amazing job with this.
Also, the blog loads super fast for me on Internet explorer.
Outstanding Blog!

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something
which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
