We are Nalla Malla Reddy Publications Private Limited, a publishing house with social concern, particularly education, the core of the human civilization, catalyst for advancement, progress and prosperity of a nation and the world at large to live with harmony, with strides in unraveling the mysteries of the universe.
It is established by Sri Nalla Malla Reddy, Secretary of Nalla Malla Reddy Education Society, who is running QUALITY FIRST institutions, Nalla Malla Reddy Engineering College, Nalla Malla Reddy Junior College and Nalla Malla Reddy Foundation School at Divyanagar near Hyderabad in the State of Telangana.
It is very simple. Our mentor Sri. Nalla Malla Reddy had innovated a device for thorough practice of Letters of Alphabets in the grooves by the children using pencil as the writing tool by reading and writing by tracing hundreds and thousands of times. With this practice they become perfect in pronouncing and writing of the letters of Alphabets of any Indian language which are phonetic, enabling the children to read books independently. English language has 26 letters only and shall have to memorise the spellings of the words.
Slates with letters in grooves are made in Regional, National and International Languages and Multiplication tables. They are different from the present slates. Letters in the grooves of the slates can be traced with easy movement of the pencil in the track by the children by reading and writing, writing and reading hundreds and thousands of times, getting stored in their brains and habituate the hand to write speedily. In computer language letters enter the hard disc and the printer prints speedily. Teachers have to do supervision only. Precious time of writing of letters with chalk by the teachers on each slate of the children and also papers in the note books produced by cutting trees causing environmental damage. It is unbreakable, non-soaking, durable, less expensive and paper less. Pencil is only the expenditure.
After learning to read and write the letters perfectly, A book to read by name “Punadipustakam, Bunyadikitab, Foundation book” in 3 languages Telugu, Hindi and English with basic worldly knowledge and a Copy Writing Book in 3 languages to practice writing on paper with pencil, with six(6) slates with letters in grooves, “AKSHARABHYAS” Kit like a school bag is prepared.
Knowledge comes through education. The difference between educated and the uneducated is — an educated can put on paper about the seen, read, learnt, observed all around in the world, thoughts, ideas and innovations in a communicative, written format, passing it over to the future generations and the uneducated can neither read nor put on paper though he knows, learns, observes all around the world and have thoughts and ideas.
There is no education without language. Alphabet is the basis for language. Letters are the basis of language. They are written, with vocal sounds, say pronunciation and writing by hands.
Education starts at early childhood, where seeds of education are sown either in schooling or at home as soon as the child attains the minimum age of school going, may be between 3 and 5 years.
Proper foundation has to be laid in the early schooling of the child in pre-primary level itself, as books with lessons are introduced in the upper classes imparting knowledge and advanced language, as per the advancement of classes year by year. There will be no scope for time for learning of the basic letters of Alphabets at that stage.
Once children attain perfection in reading and writing of the letters of Alphabets along with introductory mathematics like multiplication tables, they become self-confident who can excel in education without worry to the parents and the teachers, can pursue higher levels of education successfully resulting in knowledgeable, creative and globally competitive.
Standards in education are at a very low ebb, though thousands of crores rupees are spent by the government and the parents cumulatively. Schools and Institutions are churning out students with marks and certificates who are unable to be employed properly except the intuitive, leaving aside the dropouts in larger numbers either from the schools or colleges failing to pursue higher levels of studies, though doors are open to them.
Astonishingly, many students in high schools cannot read and write perfectly, even at intermediate level.
WHAT IS THE REASON?
The reason is very simple. Proper foundation is not laid at the early level of schooling or in the pre-primary level or by First class itself in reading and writing of letters of Alphabets perfectly. Books are introduced without perfection in reading and writing of letters of Alphabets, without instilling self-confidence in the children.
What is the use of constructing a building without foundation? It crumbles any day.
We envisage proper foundation in reading and writing of letters of Alphabets hundreds and thousands of times, which makes the children retain in their brains and the hands get habituated to write beautifully and speedily, gets stored in the hard disc and the printer prints speedily and beautifully, like a computer. Thus, “Practice makes perfect” in reading and writing of the letters of Alphabets at the early age of the children either at home or in the school at pre-primary level itself.
WHAT DO WE NEED FOR THIS?
From the good olden days people used to practice letter of Alphabets on stones, sand on wooden planks and then came the slate and chalk on which the teachers write the letters with chalk piece and the students trace on it. Now, slates have become desolate. Note books have entered, wherein, children practice on the paper by tracing or by writing by seeing the letters written by the teachers on the black board or digitally displayed in the class room. Precious time of teacher is lost in putting up the letters on each slate of the student.
As all that glitters is not gold, the note books and digital displays shall be of no use for thorough practice and cannot practice number of times on paper. Nothing can displace the dictum “Practice makes perfect”. No perfection is devoid of practice. A new age slate is required, to save teacher’s time, to save the trees for producing paper, shall be unbreakable, durable, less expensive with minimal expenditure on the writing tool and useful for generations.
There are many thoughts and theories on children education. What ever thought it is, it shall be of making the children learn the letters of Alphabets thoroughly as there is no education without perfection in reading and writing.
