Prasad,

As far as I know, Ruby has English-based keywords, class names, and method
names everywhere. In fact, the first character of an identifier must be
7-bit ASCII (there's been discussion on the list in the past about the
impossibility of having identifiers composed entirely of Cyrillic
characters).

There have been programming languages modeled after other human languages,
though; see <
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-English-based_programming_languages>. That
page lists a few in Hindi and Tamil, but I don't see any Telugu.
