Latest Tech News in Telugu

SAN JOSE: Back in the 1990s, the proliferation of students from India and China to American universities gave rise to some charming abbreviation expansions.

University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), one of the great mid-western universities, came to be called University of Indians and University of Chinese. New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) had so many students from Bangalore that some Indians called it New Jayanagar Institute of Technology, after a well-known suburb in Bangalore. Some students joked hyperbolically to this correspondent they could organize a tennis ball cricket game between Jayanagar 4th Block vs Jayanagar 9th Block on the campus. On the West Coast, the University of Southern California (USC), another haven for Asian students, was dubbed University of Spoiled Chinese.

But nothing prepares you for Silicon Valley University (SVU) and Northwestern Polytechnic (NWP), two Bay Area schools that are currently in the news in India because several students who came here to study have been deported, and others have not been allowed to board flights from Hyderabad on their way here. Two days of moseying around these sketchy colleges yielded the following observation: saturated as they are with students from Andhra and Telangana, well may they dub them Sri Venkateswara University and Nalgonda-Warangal Polytechnic.

Here's the inside - and outside - scoop about SVU and NWP. The two institutions, run mainly by Chinese-American principals, appear to cater almost exclusively to Indian applicants; students who spoke to this correspondent said more than 70 per cent of the nearly 5000 enrolled in two schools are from these two states, and clearly and audibly, Telugu is the lingua franca on campus.

They could also call it "University of Manavallu" ("our people" in Telugu).

The institutions also don't bear any comparison to UIUC, USC, and NJIT, which, jokes about Indian-Chinese overflow aside, are well-established and highly-regarded schools.

Officials from the two institutions under the lens made themselves scarce when this correspondent went visiting on Monday and Tuesday, but its not difficult to get an idea of the real picture talking to students, scores of whom were hanging around NWP campus in Fremont with worried expressions, even though the semester had ended. They said they were anxious about news reports in India that the schools were under the scanner and some students arriving in San Francisco to study here have been deported, and they were eager for some clarity on the situation.

The schools have issued statements denying they have been blacklisted and maintain they are legitimate institutions. Technically, they are correct. They have a campus, a faculty, classroom instruction, and valid accreditation. But they are sketchy in the extreme and seem to just about make the cut in terms of legitimacy.
