He still lives in Telugus’ hearts

cp brownBorn in Calcutta (November 11, 1798) and brought up in England, C P
Brown returned to India in 1820 to be among the Telugus. He chose to
work as registrar in Machilipatnam in 1822 and in Cudapah in 1824 and
researched at his own cost for 60 years thereafter for recognition of
Telugu as a great language overseas. He translated Vemana poems into
English, got printed a Telugu-English dictionary with 16,000 words and
lost his job as he sent it to the board for print. Still he did not give up. He appealed to the Court of Director inviting the wrath of British Crown and won the case. He was paid for three years without a job. Later, he set up his own printing press to spread the Telugu
literature fame. CP also collected 100s of Tallapatra books while paying the pundits. Though he died in December 1884, Brown still lives in the hearts of all Telugus as he had proved precisely Gurajada’s saying. That was Brown the great whose services are still beyond measures.
