Fun facts about Telugu

The idiom 'tiger at home, cat outdoors' is used to describe someone who is confident in his familiar space but becomes timid in unfamiliar places.

Telugu is known as ‘Italian of the East’ because its nouns so often end in vowels.

Traditionally, there were no spaces in Telugu writing, but nowadays English punctuation is widely used.
