from Hyderabad since five and half years for the exclusive benefit of our community people

to the activities of our community in the state of Andhra Pradesh in addition to
maintaining salivahana vivaha vedika column. It is presently being published by Shri
M.Narayana Rao with his personal efforts. As it was felt that the publication of the paper
should be eternal, a public trust in the name of "Salivahana Publications Trust"
