Akella Raghavendra is a coach for IAS aspirants and a motivational speaker. At a meeting organised by Telugu Non-Resident Indians (NRIs), at Sydney in Australia, Akella lit the lamp of emotional bonding with one's own mother tongue. He threw light on the writing in one's mother tongue, which is the connecting factor. He drew analogy of working in another country, to a married man spending the whole week with his wife and spending Sunday with his mother. It does not mean that he is forgetting one or the other, he said. It is just a part of one whole flow of life. Mother tongue is like that, he said.
