Some small talks

Hyderabad 2 and half years back : I have been in hyderabad for over 2 and half years now. When I first came to hyderabad, the first impression was great. The city was great not only because it was software industry hub because the way it was set up. Clean roads, greenery at most palces, hitech city and offices, lots of good restaurants, outing spots: all this made a great palce to stay. But most important aspect which I observed was safety. I didn’t heard any major problems from security point of view. Ofcourse there used to be small incidents but by large it was very peaceful. People were busy in their life and everything seemed to be ok.

Hyderabad Today : Things have changed a lot and not for betterment. Earlier two bomb blasts took place killing several people but still it didn’t hurt the image of city. But recent developments have impacted city’s image a lot. All of sudden many news about disturbance in city keep coming. Telangana issue bringing so many bandh one after another along with destruction to public property. Now reliance stores being attackedย  in other parts of andhar because of a news channel. Though people can argue that I do not belong to this part, so I don’t understand the sentiments involved and it can be correct to certain extent but few things are beyond my understanding for sure.

The first one that stands out is ‘why do people start comitting suicide whenever something happens’. First at YSR’s death incident, then due to Talangana issue ; everyday I read in paper that these many people comitted suicide supporting the issue. If the reasons are something else, some logic can be applied but comitting suicide for such issue is wasting your life. The astonishing part is many educated people doing such acts.

Autos in Hyderabad: There are some unique things about hyderabad autowalas :

1. They are one of the best when it comes to hiking the rates. If yor are new to city and are not aware of rates, they can ask you to pay 3-4 times. I know other city auto walas can claim thier records, but I still hyd. auto walas at top..

2. Between two same source and destination, they will charge differnt from different sides.

3. Excellent concept of sharing autos and only hyderabadi autowalas can drive when three persons are sitting in front along with him on the small seat.

Chalte Chalte : They say that whatever you learn is never wasted. My hobby of listening to music came in handy in office. I won the Hindi Antakshari in officeย  along with two other team members. Not a very big deal, but something to cheer about. Many conclusions could be drawn after the event. Team work is important as my team member handled the old hindi songs and I handled new one. Thus music can give you pleasure and chance to get more pleasure. So keep the musical devices and senses on. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a happy week.

    congrats for wining Antakshari competition.
    well coming to suicides, people are having their feelings and sentiments to the respective person or issue. for example YSR’s aroyaga sri scheme (where any one who is economical backward get free medical services free of cost ,especially for major operations is huge hit) .people fear that these schemes may stopped after his death. There very small number of cases where some commit suicides as promise to give some money there family. neeways committing suicide is not a good idea


    • however u want o justify, reality is same. I noticed it because it was going on for many days. but i think u also agree to the fact that its not a gud idea

    Wow! Congrats on winning the competition Makrand ๐Ÿ™‚
    But seriously, I came here first in 2007 too … never felt the city as a whole is clean n green .. its only the bHills and JHills side isn’t it ๐Ÿ˜›

    Abt the autowallas, I hv a whole post dedicated to them ๐Ÿ˜› What more cn I say ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • The entire city is not clean n green , but in addition to bHills and JHills, areas like hitech city, gachibowli are also greener. I have seen cities like indore where with development, greenry was disapperaing rapidly.
