VISAKHAPATNAM: English, often described as the world language, has become essential in the present day world, which has become a Global Village, chairman of Builders Association of India (Visakhapatnam Centre) Cheruvu Ramakotaiah said.

Lack of soft skills and fluency in English among the youth of the rural areas of the region is proving to be a major obstacle for their career development, he said. Participating as chief guest in a programme on Wednesday to distribute The New Indian Express publication -- ‘English Blues -- A Guide Book for Lovers and Learners of the English Language’ -- among first year students of Dr VS Krishna Government Degree College, Maddilapalem in the city, he said knowledge of English can help improve the self-confidence of the youth. The book distribution was organised by Builders Association of India, Visakhapatnam Centre, in association with the TNIE, Visakhapatnam.

“Education is not just important for women but it is a necessity, because she is the one who handles most of the issues, including home and children, she has more responsibilities than a man,” Ramakotaiah said. He suggested that TNIE also publish the advanced level ‘English Blues’ and assured that they were ready to be associated with the TNIE in distributing it among poor students for helping ensure their bright future.

Speaking on the occasion, principal of Dr VS Krishna Government Degree and PG College JVVSN Murthy said that ‘English Blues’ would be of immense help to students preparing for verbal ability tests. Lauding the efforts of TNIE in publishing it, he said poor students of the college would greatly benefit by the book that was designed for college students as well as job aspirants.

Head of English department of the Dr VS Krishna College N Prasad Rao said English was the only language used for official purpose in India, in spite of Hindi being declared the official language. In the present scenario apart from strong academic achievements it is essential to have good communication skills, he added. Executive members of the Builders Association of India (Visakhapatnam Centre), GV Raviraju, S Ramgopal, total team of TNIE, Visakhapatnam, students and staff of the Krishna College were present on the occasion.
