Sri V.A.K. Ranga Rao – Collection of Old Telugu Literature

Dear Friends, 

Sri V A K Ranga Rao has a collection of over 42,000 gramophone records
of music, dramas and speeches, in around forty Indian languages and
dialects and 30 foreign languages.

He is a Music Scholar, Dancer, Film Historian, Book Reviewer, Art Critic and Orator, He is the son of Ravu Janardana Krishna Ranga Rao – the Zamindar of Chikkavaram and
Saraswathi Devi.

I have contacted him today and requested him to spare some of the rare gramphone records (like P.suribabu padyaalu etc) for degital recording and placing them on net for free downloading by telugu people.He happily agreed for this but told me it is very costly
and if any body interested in this work can contact him at his address:

V A K Ranga Rao,
Ram Mahal,
36 Pycrofts Gardens,
Chennai 600006,

  1. Rahamatulla garu,

    Great to hear such a thing. I am interested in supporting it. Can you tell us how we can help in this regard ? Currently I live in US, so cannot personally involve in it. Does Sri Ranga Rao has any idea how much time, money, energy and any other resources it would cost for this effort ?

  3. Rahamthulla Garu,

    It is good to copy the records at his home. If the Gramophone has an outlet to Speaker we can convert that to digital format instead of sending to spears we can divert to the device shown below.

    The above device is expensive I’ll find a wired version of the device it may cost

    CYBERHOME DVD recorder

    This is another DVD recorder. It needs a tv connection to see the display of recording fetures.

  5. Rahamatulla garu,

    Glad to receive your email. Please note that we dont need to invest a lot of money (at least in thousand for each gramphone record). Simply, we can record the songs using a tape recorder and connect the recorder to a computer and transform to MP3 without much effort. Alternatively, we can record directly on to an iPod using a voice recorder and transform to system.

    I am sure, you might be referring to ‘Recording’ like a commercial CD. But since our goal is not to do any business as such, I am sure we can get the process for a much less price. And as you mentioned, we can get the recording done at Ranga Rao gari’s residence only. May be our members can come up with some more examples like this. Still we will need at least one person who can work on this. What do you think ?

  6. Rahamatulla garu,

    To keep the quality good forever, we may have to it may be in a
    defined way. I feel we need a good system with good audio card with high
    hard disk capacity. This costs around 20000 Rs. may be. We can rent it
    also except for hard disk. We need a good enthusiastic, even paid
    technical volunteer, to take up this job. We have to record all songs in
    wave format by connecting speaker out to the computer line in. On these
    waveformat songs, we should apply noise reduction algorithms and clean
    the songs on hard disk. Then we have to convert it all to good quality MP3 or
    AAC format and upload it to website. We can use
    for webhosting by supporting them finanacially.

    So total cost can be controlled between 300$ to 1000$, including hard disk,
    rent of computer, and payment to technical volunteer, and some software.

    First we have to find the technical volunteer in chennai. Funding we can raise
    by campaining in the similar way as we campained for Telugu conference. I will
    arrange for it once one technical volunteer is available. Let us seach for him and allot him the work.
