The genesis of Telangana Jagruthi intersected with the renewed trajectory gained by the movement for Telangana state formation.
Telangana Jagruthi’s founder, Smt. Kalvakuntla Kavitha having returned from the United States of America in 2003, realized that the women of Telangana did not have a suitable platform to participate in the movement. To address this concern, Telangana Jagruthi was formed to herald a cultural renaissance in Telangana for its people to regain a sense of their unique identity and their human as well as socio-cultural rights along with promoting greater involvement of women in the process.
One of the first activities that the organization undertook was the revival of the celebrations of the Bathukamma festival – a festival unique to the culture of Telangana with a universal message of environment protection and women's rights.
Kavitha started celebrating Bathukamma as a form of protest. A non-violent, culturally relevant manner to promote equity and justice for the people of Telangana, for the environment, and for womanhood. Now it has grown into a cultural festival for a large proportion of the population and is celebrated in many parts of the world including Australia, the United Kingdom, USA, Qatar, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates.
Telangana Jagruthi thereafter ventured into other spheres such as skill development, provision of healthcare services, educational development, environment protection, and women's rights. It has offices across the world including India, the USA, UK, UAE, Australia and Oman.
