38 Gwynn and Venkateswara Sastry’s 1991 Telugu-English Dictionary gives a similar set of definitions, reversing, if anything, the relative emphasis on love in relation to pride: abhimanam n. 1. love, devotion, affection. 2. regard, liking, care. 3. ’s community. 4. pride (in a good sense), selfrespect, self-esteem. 5. pride (in a bad sense), arrogance. abhimani [pl. abhimanulu] n. 1. one who loves or cares, one who has affection or regard. 2. 39 The definition given by Apte’s Practical Sanskrit-English Dictionary demonstrates the similarities between the Sanskrit abhimana and its Telugu cognate:   Language, Emotion, and Politics in South India abhimana 1.

33 All of these new recognitions paved the way for a new full-fledged form of personification of language as a mother or goddess by the early twentieth century. The book then identifies and traces the contributions made to this process by transformations within three distinct though related domains: grammar, pedagogy, and translation. Chapter 3 examines shifts in the categories used to represent languages within the grammatical traditions of South Asia and their encounter with European language analysis practices.

The second contemporary use of abhimanam in the Telugu language is in relation to icons of popular culture, particularly movie actors. In such contexts it takes on the connotation of fan behavior or fan devotion. In some cases, these two meanings have coalesced around a single figure in the form of a film actor turned politician. The actor and former chief minister of the state of Andhra Pradesh, N. T. Rama Rao (NTR for short), who died in 1996, inspired just such an intensely affect-laden following, merging fan devotion with political loyalty among his followers.
