Welcome: This blog is about Hyderabad culture, land and people, "with a whole spectrum of experiences of Khatta (sour), Meetha (sweet), Pheeka (unsalted), Teekha (off), Khara (spicy), Kadva (bitter) brim with caring and lots of loving." as phrased by Mike Ghouse, a hyderabadi damad.

Hard times and tall tales

All is definitely not well with the world. Hyderabad's most prominent landmark, the four-minared architectural marvel that has defined it for more than 4 centuries, is not in great shape. While hi-tech cities in low-tech surroundings bloom, plush gated communities mushroom, skyscrapers sprout and all the cars, autos, bikes and buses of Bharat that is mahaan, converge at Punjagutta or Paradise, depending on where you are and regardless of where you wanted to go in the first place, the collective, incremental effect of idlers, lovers, tourists and vandals, not to speak of the "vagaries of nature" to use a popular cliche, is taking its toll. Of course, there is the obvious, but the unmentionable--sheer neglect by government agencies, paid to keep it alive and going. Tell them this and they'll blind you with statistics--so don't even think of getting into that!

On another note, who's pulling a fast one here--a Hyderabadi or a Bangalorean? Hard to tell, eh?
