  • American who loves the lingo of royals, J. S. Ifthekhar -- Matthew B. Stannard says Urdu is a very cultured and vibrant language, The Hindu July 18, 2012
    This is Hyderabad: bullock carts jostle with cars for space on the congested roads; people hang out of buses or face being crushed inside; yet there is space.

The lack of physical space, and the presence of a more metaphysical space, leads to tension and discomfort, but it is also what makes Hyderabad exciting and colorful. There is space for the old and the new, for the rich and the poor, for Muslims and Hindus, and even for Communist insurgents and Telegana separatists. Even I felt I had a place. source: India: An Ode to Hyderabad, by Linette Lim @ Desicritics.org
