The Telangana state was divided from combined Andhra Pradesh demanding special recognition to the culture and festivals of the state like Bathukamma, which falls at the same time as Dussehra. At the time of the agitation, women played Bathukamma on roads to take part in the protest. KCR's daughter was instrumental in making women a part of the protest with the Bathukamma festival.

Even after the formation of the state, Kavitha is promoting and celebrating the floral festival Bathukamma. For the 2021 Bathukamma festival, Telangana Jagruthi run by Kavitha had roped in Gautham Menon and AR Rahman for a special song that was well received by the Telangana people.

The Bathukamma festival had made it to the international stage as the special song that was released for the festival will be played in Burj Khalifa on Saturday and the timings to play the special song were also fixed. Besides people living in Dubai, people from other countries will also see the song that brings global attraction for the song.

A major tourist attraction in Dubai, Burj Khalifa will play the special song two times on Saturday at evening 9: 40 and 10: 40. We have to appreciate Kavitha for bringing international recognition to the famous festival of the state.
