Communication is important for every being. Language serves as a medium of communication through which men communicate their feelings. There is no community without language, however all languages may not have the script, besides languages express the culture of the community. Keeping in view the importance of language, the educational authorities introduced languages at various levels of education, either as first language or second language. The Department of Second Languages of our college offers Telugu, Hindi, Sanskrit, French and Arabic as second languages. The Department is running a literary club named TRIVENI, through which awareness is created among the students regarding our rich culture. The club creates awareness among the students regarding various literary personalities, festivals etc.
