My Pride

Posted on: Friday, July 18, 2008

While I was jumping through one Blog to the Another tonight, I suddenly realised I have never written anything about Hyderabad (India), the place that houses many of my memories, the one close to my heart – both pleasant and Bitter, The Beholder of my childhood, My Innocence and My Old Self.

For all who are unaware, I come from Hyderabad, also termed as ‘Nawabo ka shehar’ meaning ‘City of Royals’.Β  The reason its calles so is because This City inhabited many Mughals way back in History during their peak ruling Era. There still live many such people there whose hierarchy can be traced back to the once ruling Mughals.

The local language spoken there is Urdu, a language which is pure joy to listen to and equally difficult to learn, Although Many people speak a mix of Hindi and Urdu, which is quite popular and easy to grasp. Only a Few people could speak and understand pure Urdu, specially those who inhabited in there through generations.

The People of Hyderabad are famous for their hospitality, where Respect and Manners rule every Person’s Life and Attitude. I have visited Cities like Bangalore and Mumbai to name some, but dint like them as much as I Love Hyderabad. Hyderabad is worldy famous for possessing the Real Pearls (used in jewellery) and for its Rich and Aromatic Foods. There never comes a tourist to Hyd, who would leave without tasting every delicacy Hyd is famous for like Hyderabadi Biryani and Khubani ka meetha ( Apricot Dessert) to name a few.

The weddings held there are pure delight to witness and enjoy. The traditional customs knitted along the Modern fashion gives a dazzling outcome which is worth witnessing. The wide spread of food, the beautiful decorations enveloping the whole area, Gathering of people wearing rich colours and textures …. Gosh! I miss Hyd … 😦

Call me patriotic, Or Call me a Traditional Hyderabadi, Choose your pick forΒ  I Love Hyderabad and always would. The one who has visited Hyd, would most certainly agree with me, Woudnt you ?? I shall be in the near future inshallah be posting some of the pictures of Hyderabad Delights and Possession. Keep Waiting till then … πŸ˜‰
